Who would hold a higher status: the 72 companions of Imam Husayn (a.s), or the 313 soldiers of Imam Mahdi (ajfs)?
In my view, all the martyrs of Islam hold a very high status, but the martyrs of Karbala, they are with Imam Al-Husayn (a.s), the Master of Martyrs, so they hold the highest status as martyrs.
As being companions of Imam Al-Husayn (a.s) or Imam Al-Mahdi (a.j.f.s), there won’t be any difference because they are all faithful to the Imam of their time. Allah has the best knowledge.
