Kumayl ibn Ziyad

Kumayl bin Ziyad an-Nakha'i (Arabic: كُميل بن زياد النخائي) a companion of Muhammad, and later Ali, the fourth Sunni Caliph and first Shi'a Imam. He is best know for the du'a or supplication in the Shi'a anthologies that bears his name, du'a al-Kumayl [1].

Kumayl fought alongside Sa'id ibn Jubayr at the battle of Jamājim in 82 AH (699-701 CE) against the provincial governor of the Iraqi region, al-Hajjaj ibn Yusuf al-Thaqafi. Kumayl commanded the ‘Battalion of Qur’an Reciters’.

Kumayl was put to death by al-Hajjaj because of his staunch Shi'a beliefs. It is said that al-Hajjaj had asked Kumayl to disown Ali before his execution.

The shrine of Kumayl is on a hill at Wadi al-Salaam in Najaf.
