Ibn Shahrashub in al-Manaqib and 'Allama al-Majlisi in Bihar al-anwar have mentioned his name among the martyrs of Karbala, but Tustari believed that his correct name was Hanzala b. As'ad al-Shibami which has been openly mentioned in 'Auyun akhbar al-Rida (a) and this mistake has been made due to replacement the name of the son with the name of the father and also distortion of 'As'ad to Sa'd.
Sa'd was among great personalities in the army of Imam al-Husayn (a). On the Day of Ashura when the battle had become intense, he went to Imam (a) and asked him for permission to go to the battlefield. After receiving permission and farewell to Imam (a), he went to the battlefield.
"He went to the battlefield after Khalid b. 'Amr al-Azdi and before 'Umayr b. 'Abd Allah al-Madhhiji and after a brave fight, killed and wounded many soldiers and was martyred in the desert of Karbala in defense of the family of Imam Ali (a)."
