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. If you give money or walk, Allah will reward you.
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.
