Maytham al-Tammar Shrine reviews
A very near & walking distance from The great Masjid of Kufa, a shahabi of Imam Hussain A.S. was martyred & buried here. A well connected historical place to visit. more »
He was a companion of the first Imam and went on to become a great scholar. He was killed because of his love for the first Imam. The shrine is some ten minutes from the Holy Imam's house more »
He was a slave, Imam Ali set him free & greeted Salim by the name Maytham. Maytham was the name that his mother gave to him after his birth; no one in Kufa knew that Maytham was Salim's real name. Upon hearing a stranger calling him by Maytham, Salim was shocked, baffled, and astonished that a person other than his parents knew about his real name (Maytham). He questioned Imam Ali as to how did he knew that Maytham was his real name. Imam Ali replied, "Come with me do not worry. Allah's Apostle (Prophet Muhammad) has told me that the Iranians call you Maytham. Still shocked, Maytham willing went with Imam Ali who would later become his best friend and teacher.
There is a great person. End poverty, but adhere to the Imam zmansh
