The Hadith: 'There will appear from the tribe of Thaqif a liar …'

Q 2: There is a Hadith in “Iqtida’ Al-Sirat Al-Mustaqim” (p. 200), related by Muslim, stating: “There will appear from the tribe of Thaqif a liar and a Mubir.” The liar was Al-Mukhtar Al-Thaqafy, who sided with Al-Husayn. There was also Al-Hajjaj who turned away from `Aly and his people, and was a “Mubir”. What exactly does it mean that he was a “Mubir”?


A: A Mubir is someone who sheds blood, attacks people, and oppresses them. Al-Hajjaj ibn Yusuf Al-Thaqafy was one of them.
