Maytham did a lot of good for people. The people loved him very much. They wanted to take Maytham's body to bury it. But the police strictly prevented them from approaching it.
One night, seven dates-sellers came. They saw the policemen burning a fire. Two of them sawed the trunk. The seven dates-sellers carried Maytham's body outside Kufa. They buried it at a known place. Then they came back home.
Six years passed. Mukhtar announced his revolution in Kufa. His army met Ubaidullah's on al-Khazir Riverbank.
Ibrahim al-Ashtar could behead Ubaidullah bin Ziyad.
Some fighters brought Mukhtar the head of Ubaidullah. He stood up and kicked Ubaidullah's head. He remembered Maytham's words in prison.
Mukhtar, you'll get out of prison. You'll get revenge on Imam Husayn's killers.
Days passed. Imam Husayn's killers perished. People have cursed them throughout history.
Today, when a visitor leaves the Holy City of Najaf and goes to see the Kufa ruins, on the way he sees a beautiful dome. The dome decorates Maytham's shrine.
Adopted from the book: "Maytham al-Tammar" by: "Kamal al-Seyyed"
