Maytham addressed the people:
People, if you want to hear some information about Ali bin Abi Talib, then come to me.
The people crowded around Maytham. He began teaching them various kinds of knowledge.
The spies told Ubaidullah bin Ziyad about Maytham's words.
Ibn Ziyad ordered a policeman to cut off Maytham's tongue. Maytham said:
Amirul Mu'mineen has told me about that.
The policeman cut off his Maytham's tongue. Another policeman stabbed him with a sword.
Thus, this mujahid's life was put out like a candle!
