History
Q [1]  Was the revolt of Mukhtar bin Abu Ubaida as per the instructions of Imam Zain-ul-Abideen (peace be upon him)?
There is no historical text that states that Mukhtar began his revolution by the order of Imam Zain-ul-Abideen (peace be upon him). Yes, some narrations praised what Mukhtar did.
Q [2]  I have heard that Mukhtar ibn Abi Ubayd al-Thaqafi started a sect called the Kaysaniyyah and that the Imams (peace be upon them) spoke against him. Is this true?
Narrations differ in the matter of Mukhtar. Some narrations praise him and others do not. In one narration, his son asked Imam Jaffer Al-Sadiq (peace be upon him) about his father. Imam replied by praising him. It appears from this that he is considered as a believer and a follower of the path of the Ahlulbait (peace be upon them).
