Mukhtar announces the Revolution

Mukhtar sends a Message

From his prison, Mukhtar sent a message to Ryfaah and his companions. The message was as follows:

Allah has made your reward greater. He has just decreased your sins for fighting the unjust. Now I ask you to help me in taking severe revenge on Imam Hussein's killers.

Rufaah answered Mukhtar’s message. In it he said:

We are ready to break into the prison to release you!

Mukhtar ordered them not to do that.

Abdullah bin Umar bin al Khattab interceded for Mukhtar again. He was released.

Having left prison, Mukhtar began calling up the people to punish the persons who committed the Karbala massacre.

In the meantime, he received a letter from Muhammad bin al-Hanafiyah, Imam Ali's son. In his letter Muhammad announced his support to Mukhtar.

Muhammad's attitude encouraged people to stand by Mukhtar. Ibrahim al-Ashtar, a brave senior army leader, joined Mukhtar.

The revolutionaries fixed time to announce the revolution. The time was Thursday night, Rabi al-Awwal 14th, 66 A.H.

The spies were reporting about Mukhtar's movements. Meanwhile, the officers were roaming through the streets of Kufa.
