السلام عليكم

(salam)

 

Shimr ibn Thil Jawshan (may Allah torture him in the lowest point of hell).

 

Indirectly, Yazid ibn Mu'awiyah.

 

(wasalam)

 

Interestingly, the earliest source for the Maqtal (Abi Mikhnaf's Maqtal) names Sinan ibn Anas as the one who killed Imam Hussain (as), not Shimr.

Shaykh al-Mufid names him (Sinan), and a number of other sources. Those sources also have very different details and don't have some of the more well-known narrations.

SInan b anas al nakhai  also reportedly lived to the times of hajjaj b Yusuf

 

but its immaterial who threw the dagger or spear, the culprit for Hussains death is muawiayh who set in motion the chain of events by nominating his son yazid w/o consulting muslim elite.

SALLAM ALAYKOOM

 

I have a question:

 

Who killed Imam Hussain (as)?

 

Salamun alaykum. As several people injured Imam Hussain in various ways there are different views. At least 6 people have been mentioned as the one who killed Imam Hussain: 1. Sinan ibn Anas 2. Shimr ibn Dhi al-Jawshan 3. Husain ibn Numayr 4. Muhajir ibn Aws al-Tamimi 5. Kathir ibn Abd Allah 6. Khuli ibn Yazid. Among them, most sources have referred to Sinan or Shimr. Based on some, both participated in this wicked act and according to others, Shimr ordered Sinan to do that and therefore, both have been mentioned as the one who killed Imam Hussain. AND Allah KNOWS BEST.
