Mus'ab ordered his soldiers to arrest Mukhtar 's wife. Her name was Umra. Her father's name was al-Numan bin Bashher al-Ansary. She was a believing woman.
Mus'ab asked her to disown her husband. She said:
I won't disown him. He fasted in the day. He said his prayers at night. He sacrificed himself for Allah and His Apostle. He took revenge on Imam Husayn's killers.
Mus'ab said with threat:
I'll kill you!
The believing woman said:
To die a martyr for Allah is better than this world. I'll die and enter paradise! I prefer Imam Ali to everything!
Mus'ab decided to kill her. In the dark, a person took her to a place between Hira and Kufa. In that desert, the person beheaded her. She died a martyr for Imam Husayn's aims.
Mukhtar and his wife passed away. They wrote a bright page in the history of Jihad. The page has illuminated the way for generations.
