Mukhtar and Maytham al-Tammar
- :Kamal al-Seyyed
Adopted from the book : "Mukhtar al-Thaqafi" by : "Kamal al-Seyyed"
Maytham al-Tammar was a good man. He was one of Imam Ali's companions. From the Imam's knowledge, he learnt a lot.
Maytham al-Tammar was in the same prison with Mukhtar . One-day Mukhtar said to him:
Ubaidullah bin Ziyad, the unjust man, has killed the grandson of Allah's Apostle. Now he will kill us!
Maytham al-Tammar said:
My dear Ali has said to me:
They will tie you to a date palm trunk.
Then they will kill you.
They will release Mukhtar from prison. He will kill the unjust tyrant. He will kick his face with his leg.
