How he avenged the Karbala perpetrators  (61 - 67 AH) 

The  book  begins  by  introducing  Mukhtar  and  traces  his  life  from the  moment  he  first  welcomes  Muslim  Aqeel,  the  cousin  of  Imam Husein (as), who was sent to assess the situation in Kufa.


Mukhtar  is  subsequently  imprisoned  by  the  authorities  because  of  his  love  and  support  of  Imam  Husein  (as).  Mukhtar  manages  to  get  himself  released  through  the  help  of  a  Kumayl  Hamadani.  Meanwhile,   the   atrocities   of   Yazeed   continues   and   because   of   the Kerbala effect, the political situation in the region also changes dramatically.


After  Yazeed’s  death,  and  parallel  to  Mukhtar’s  activities,  a  group  called  the  Tawwabuns  (the  Penitents),  led  by  Sulayman  Surad  Khuzai,  organise  themselves  to  punish  the  Kerbala  perpetrators.  The  Tawwabun  decide  to  first  punish  Ubaydallah  Ziyad,  one  of  the  leaders  of  the  planning  of  the  Kerbala  massacre.  However,  the  Tawwabun are heavily crushed by the forces of Ubaydallah Ziyad. Mukhtar tries to form an alliance with a friendly governor in the
region in order to start avenging the Kerbala perpetrators, but is rebuffed. He therefore teams up with another valiant supporter of the Ahlal-bayt, Ibrahim Malik Ashtar. Together, they lead a group of people in taking the control of the Governorship of Kufa. Once  in  power,  Mukhtar  has  to  defend  himself  from  his  enemies  who want him dead, for the fear of being hunted out for their part in the atrocities they carried out at Kerbala.


Having consolidated his power and his hold in Kufa, Mukhtar begins his  mission  in  earnest.  He  starts  searching  for  the  perpetrators  of  Kerbala, puts them on trial and punishes the guilty. Finally,  the  booklet  traces  the  events  leading  to  the  martyrdom  of  Mukhtar.
