ʿAmr b. Ḍubayʿa b. Qays b. Thaʿlaba al-Ḍubaʿī (Arabic:عَمرو بن ضُبَيعَة بن قيس بن ثَعلَبة الضُبَعي) or ʾUmar b. Ḍubayʾa (عُمَر بن ضُبَيعَة) was among the martyrs of Karbala. Some have said that he also met the Prophet (s).

He was a brave horseman from Kufa who came to Karbala with the army of 'Umar b. Sa'd. After he saw that the suggestions of Imam al-Husayn (a) were not accepted by the army of 'Umar b. Sa'd and they did not allow him to return, he and a group of others joined Imam (a). He was martyred in the first attack of the army of 'Umar b. Sa'd.

In the Ziyarah al-Shuhada', he has been blessed, "Peace be upon 'Amr b. Dubay'a al-Duba'i."

In Imam al-Husayn's (a) al-Ziyara al-Rajabiyya, Dubay'a b. 'Amr has also been blessed, "Peace be upon Dubay'a b. 'Amr" who seems to be the same 'Amr b. Dubay'a.
