Ambushing them, Busr killed numerous men and captured a number of women and children. For the ever-first time Muslim women and children were captured.  These measures were once again adopted later in KarbalÄ. About Busr, Masâ€˜Å«dÄ« has written that he slayed a number from the tribes of KhuzÄâ€˜a and HamdÄn together with a group known as al-AbnÄâ€™ (from Iranian race) in Yemen.
Setting out to AnbÄr, â€˜Awf Ibn SufyÄn martyred Ibn HassÄn al-BakrÄ« in addition to Shiâ€˜ites men and women. 
After Hasan Ibn â€˜AlÄ« (a) had to compromise with Muâ€˜Äwiya, one of the menaces ImÄm felt was the security of â€˜AlÄ«â€™s Shiâ€˜ite Muslims. Hence it was stipulated within the contract that â€˜AlÄ«â€™s disciples should be all endowed with security. Although Muâ€˜Äwiya had conceded it, immediately on the same day he announced that he would disregard the entire commitments.
Since KÅ«fa was the center of Shiâ€˜ite Muslimsâ€™ political and religious tendencies, Muâ€˜Äwiya had to appoint one who can curb such people. Following the clashes between â€˜Abd AllÄh Ibn â€˜Amr Ibn â€˜Ä€s and MughÄ«ra Ibn Shuâ€˜ba who could keep up with Muâ€˜Äwiya in deception, MughÄ«ra eventually flourished to be appointed as the governor of KÅ«fa.
Muâ€˜Äwiyaâ€™s endeavor was to have politically peaceful treatments towards the opponents as much as he could. The bases of two groups of the Umayya adversaries such as theKhÄridjites and Shiâ€˜ite Muslims were in Iraq. The KhÄridjites revolted several times but were suppressed with all possible haste. But on the other hand, Shiâ€˜ite Muslims by virtue of the contract signed between Hasan Ibn â€˜AlÄ« and Muâ€˜Äwiya, did not permit themselves to transgress. MughÄ«ra also intended to take no action except against the one revolting. As a result, even the KhÄridjites of KÅ«fa also had apparent relations with one another. 
Among the Iraqi tribes, the tribes of Rabiâ€˜a, HamdÄn , BanÅ« â€˜Abd al-Qays and KhuzÄâ€˜a (few in Iraq) had Shiâ€˜ites inclination.
In his remarks addressing the tribe of BanÅ« â€˜Abd al-Qays, Saâ€˜saâ€˜a Ibn SÅ«hÄn said, â€œWhen apostasy was common, you did remain beside the religion and when some followed â€˜Ä€yisha, Talha, Zubayr and â€˜Abd AllÄh
