Hurmala Ibn Kahil Al Asadi Alkoofi was the killer of the infant of the Imam Hussain. When the Imam had lost all hope in the enemy, he came out riding on a camel and asked for water, not for himself, but for his small child who was dying of thirst. Omar gave the order and Hurmala sent a three-headed arrow flying into the little child's neck. Imam Ali Ibn Al-Hussain prayed that Hurmala not live after that moment. Later on, during the uprising of the Tawabeen, Ameer mukhtar ordered to cut Hurmala's arms and legs and throw him in the fire.
