Zuhayr ibn Qayn
It was time for Salatudh Dhuhr. The fighting was not suspended and in such cases the salaa prayed is Salatul Khawf.
Imam prayed whilst two of his companions stood before him to shield him.
Besides Sa'eed ibn Abdallah Hanafi there was Zuhayr ibn Qayn who was returning from Hajj when he met Imam at a place called Zurud.
He was not a supporter of Imam from the outset but what transpired between him and Imam resulted in him becoming one of the most devoted to Imam. He too was severely wounded by the arrows whilst protecting Imam and made a last charge towards the enemy.
He breathed his last on Imam's lap.
