Ibrahim Bin Malik Ashtar

I pay my tribute to great commander of the army of Hazrat Ameer Mukhtar (ra) who brought the murderers of Imam Hussain (as) to justice and took revenge from them. I am surprised that there is no enough material available on net about this great personality of Islamic History. We must remember these great warriors and educate the people about them. May Allah raise His status in paradise.

why wouldnt it be? because of "grave worshipping"?

Bullseye.

Also, my guesses include: perhaps as a political tactic to discourage the Shia majority in the country and making sure they know who's boss, and maybe funding from the Saudi neighbor to do so.

It's just what the people there believe, though. He could be or could not be buried there. I have also read he is buried in al-Dujayl, Iraq.

I am a little bit confused here. Are talking about Mukhtar or Ibrahim ibn Malik al Ashtar?

BTW, there is an Iranian movie about Mukhtar.

Actually Hazrat Ibrahim ibn Malik Ashtar was the army commander of Hazrat Mukhtar and was as fearless as his father.

He killed many of the enemies and oppressors who were involved in the martrydom of Hazrat Imam Hussain (as)

I read this in a book (in urdu probably) on Hazrat Mukhtar which has a lot of details about the heroics of Hazrat Ibrahim

I dont know what happens eventually to Ibrahim and what makes him change his mind but he stops supporting Mukhtar from then on.

Initially he was life of Qiam but later on stops his support.

Allah knows best the reason.

As their any sayings attributed to Aimah (rah) about these men? Where was Mukhtar when Husayn was actually killed?

With regards to Mukhtar, you can search the forum as the ahadith have been posted before. As I understand, he had just been imprisoned in Kufa by Ibn Ziyad.

I am not sure what sources were used to narrate the story in the series BUT in the book i was reading it was stated that Ibrahim(ra) was clueless about the whole deal and Mukhtar(ra) tried to send a message to him in vain. When Ibrahim(ra) heard the rumors he started back towards kufa to help but it was too late.

They showed in the serial that mukhtar r.a was sending letters and the ibn zubair's army was sending him letters in the name of mukhtar r.a too which were harsh. It was too late for him to make out which ones are from whom, so he was a bit angry but realised it too late.

Couldn't find much of this details in books personally

I am not sure how authentic that time frame is(the one given in the series). In the book, it doesn't mention such a long time. Ibrahim(ra) was a brave and courageous man in his own right. I dont know why he is shown with a question mark in the series.

If the distance between mosul and kufa is almost 500 km, and a horse covers 60 km per day, you can imagine it might take a week or so to get the message across. Then whose to say the message is not lost, or someone might have stopped the messenger. Unless there are confirmed sources, we can't really question the intentions of Ibrahim(ra).

Ibrahim bin Malik Al-Nakhaee (Nakhaee due to the name of his tribe) was the right hand man and general of Ameer Mukhtar. He was a very skilled fighter and leader, following in the footsteps of his father Malik Al-Ashtar. Just like Mukhtar, he had the honor of friendship with Imam Ali's (as) son Muhammad Al-Hanfia (ra) and the rest of the Bani Hashim. And similarly, they were rivaled by Abdullah ibn Zubair (la) and the scumbags in Syria and their hordes. I will share one of his most epic battles here.

Once upon a time a scout came to Mukhtar and told him that a Syrian army 100,000 strong was approaching the city of Kufa to besiege it. Mukhtar had less than 15,000 fighters in total and it was a critical situation. Ibrahim came up with a plan. He told Mukhtar to retreat and barricade inside the governmental qasr (a fortified keep like that of a castle). He left a few thousand men with Mukhtar and took the rest outside the city and camped in a secret place. Then he rode off to scout, all alone, and reached the enemy's camp near Kufa. He introduced himself as a local and met with their commanders confidently. Suddenly he noticed a very notorious nasibi general (ibn Umar or Umar ibn something) who had just come to join the army. Ibrahim's scouting mission was complete so he hurriedly said farewell to the commanders and left. The nasibi general had recognized Ibrahim so he asked the commanders: "Did you even know that man was Ibrahim ibn Malik?" So the commander Umar took some riders after Ibrahim. By that time, Ibrahim had reached wilderness where he could hide and knew he was being followed. He climbed upon a lone, big tree and hid in its branches. Coincidentally the pursuers stopped under that tree and Umar barked orders to his men to spread and keep searching, and himself dismounted to rest under that tree. Ibrahim leaped down from the tree with a knife and dispatched Umar to hell, took his horse and rode back to his army camp. He sent word to Mukhtar and told him that the enemy would enter Kufa the next day.

The enemy army found Kufa defenseless and entered inside to find the qasr barricaded and defended. Kufa's small streets were jam-packed with nasibi soldiers. This was the strategical advantage Ibrahim and Mukhtar wanted as they had few numbers to overcome the 100,000 strong horde in open field. Ibrahim entered the city with his army from the back and Mukhtar valiantly emerged from the qasr for a battle and a very fierce slaughter of the nawasib ensured in the streets of Kufa. Within a few hours, tends of thousands of nawasib were sent to hell with a few hundred casualties on Mukhtar's side. The rest of the nawasib fled Kufa but were pursued by Ibrahim who killed them like dogs and less than half of that army made it back to Syria.

ibrahim betrayed hazrat mukhtar, who died the death of a lion, wohi qudrat ka qanoon achoon k ghar buray ,buron k ghar achay. People say that ibrahim was not of a good moral character, that is the reason history have forgotten him ,while mukhtar is still alive. Hazrat Mukhtar was a true warrior and a true avenger of blood of imam hussain.
