Qāsiṭ b. Zuhayr b. Ḥarth al-Taghlibī (Arabic: قاسِط بن زُهیر بن حرث التغلبي) (d. 61/680) was a companion of Imam 'Ali (a) who attended the three battles of Jamal, Siffin, and Nahrawan. He was also a member of Imam al-Hasan's (a) military force in Kufa.

When Imam al-Husayn (a) arrived in Karbala, he and his brothers, Kurdus and Muqsit joined the Imam's (a) army overnight and were martyred on the Day of Ashura. He is said to be among the martyrs of Karbala after the first raid of 'Umar b. Sa'd's army.

He is mentioned in ziyarah al-Shuhada: "peace be upon Qasit and Kurdus, the sons of Zuhayr al-Taghlibi".
