Qāsiṭ b. Zuhayr b. Ḥarth al-Taghlibī (Arabic: قاسِط بن زُهیر بن حرث التغلبي) (d. 61/680) was a companion of Imam 'Ali (a) who attended the three battles of Jamal, Siffin, and Nahrawan.[1] He was also a member of Imam al-Hasan's (a) military force in Kufa.[2]

When Imam al-Husayn (a) arrived in Karbala, he and his brothers, Kurdus and Muqsit joined the Imam's (a) army overnight and were martyred on the Day of Ashura.[3] He is said to be among the martyrs of Karbala after the first raid of 'Umar b. Sa'd's army.[4]

He is mentioned in ziyarah al-Shuhada: "peace be upon Qasit and Kurdus, the sons of Zuhayr al-Taghlibi".[5]
