Salaam,

As all of you may know, we have many traditions that tell us when Imam Mahdi (atf) will reappear, he will fight oppression, establish justice and avenge Imam Hussain (عليه السلام).

However, I also remember some traditions say that when Mukhtar al-Thaqafi killed the killers of Imam Hussain (عليه السلام) and brought their heads to Imam Sajjad (عليه السلام), the Imam was pleased. Also another hadith from I don't remember which Imam that said something like: "Don't curse Mukhtar, for he has avenged us".

I'm sorry if I don't remember what the exact hadiths are like, or if even they are sahih. But if you know them and confirm them to be true, then the question appears: Why would Imam Mahdi (atf) avenge the death of Imam Hussain (عليه السلام) when supposedly Mukhtar avenged his death ? And what does it mean that Imam Mahdi (atf) will avenge Imam Hussain (عليه السلام) ? How will he do that ?

Thank you.

Lets see a verse of Quran:

وَمَن قُتِلَ مَظْلُومًا فَقَدْ جَعَلْنَا لِوَلِيِّهِ سُلْطَانًا 

17:33 and whoever is slain unjustly, We have indeed given to his heir authority

Imam Mehdi ajtf is the true heir of Imam Hussain (عليه السلام). Mukhtar's killing of those who fought with Imam e Mazloom is not and cannot be considered as avenge. Avenge is the right of the "wali" of the deceased.

The "one" who commanded to bought either pledge or head of Hussain (عليه السلام), was not killed by Mukhtar.

Ziyarat-e-Ashura explains it. 

Karbala is about Humanity vs inhumanity. Universal Concepts.

Important thing to understand form the above video and the hadith mentioned and focus is that the call will be addressed to

O people of the world, ......"

Salam , 

Imam Mahdi (ajtfs) will avenge Imam Hussain (عليه السلام) by bringing his enemies out of their graves and punish them . He will also punish the enemies of Syeda Bibi Fatima Zahra (SA) and the other Imams (عليه السلام) .

And Yazid died himself , in order to be avenged he needs to be dealt with by the Imam (ajtfs) . Only an Imam can avenge an Imam .

It is true that Mukhtar (رضي الله عنه) killed some top of the list Maloons but you can't say that Hussein (عليه السلام) has been avenged.

If it was true, Imam Sajjad (عليه السلام) would've stopped crying for Imam Hussein (عليه السلام) after Mukhtar (رضي الله عنه) sent heads of Some maloon people.

Imam Sadiq (عليه السلام) wouldn't have arranged Majalis where people would come and cry over tragedy of Karbala.

Why would Imam Mahdi (atf) avenge him by bringing his enemies out of their graves and punish them ? I know that we Shias believe in the concept of Raj'a and that some people will be resurrected before the Day of Judgement, but if these killers will be brought back from the grave in order to be punished, then what's the point of the Day of Judgement ? Will not sinners supposedly be judged and punished in the Day of Judgement, and not before ? Or will they suffer double the punishment, in this World and the Hereafter ? I'm not disagreeing with you brother, I'm just asking out of curiousity.

Imam Mahdi (عليه السلام) will avenge Imam Husayn (عليه السلام) by filling the earth with justice and equity (husayniyyah) just as it had been filled with tyranny and oppression (yazidiyyah) before. The upholders of Yazid's tyrannical policies still occupy the Islamic heartlands.
