The Battle of Badr

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

The Battle of Badr was fought on the 17th Ramadhan, 2 AH in the Hijaz at the Wells of Badr.  It was the first major ghazwat, battle, led by the Prophet (s.a.w.) in the early days of Islam between the Quraysh and the Muslim community of Madina.  The battle was a decisive victory to the Muslims due to Divine intervention.  It is a battle of the converts since the Muslims were all converts to Islam.  It is one of the few battles specifically mentioned in the Qur’an.


“There has already been for you a Sign in the two armies that met (in combat): one was fighting in the Cause of Allah the other resisting Allah; these saw with their own eyes twice their number.  But Allah doth Support with His Aid whom He Pleaseth.  In this is a warning for such as have eyes to see.” (Surah Ali ‘Imran:13)

Prior to the battle, the Muslims and Quraysh of Makkah had fought several skirmishes in late 623 and early 624 CE.  Badr, however, was the first large-scale engagement between the two forces.  Following the hijrah, tensions between Makkah and Madina escalated and hostilities broke out in 623 CE, when the Muslims began a series of raids on Quraysh caravans.  Madina was located just off Makkah's main trade route and the Muslims were in an ideal position to do this.  The Muslims believed that they were entitled to such raids in retaliation for their expulsion from Makkah and the loss of their property, homes and family.  This was a serious offense in hospitality-oriented Arabia.


Fight in the Cause of Allah those who fight you but do not transgress limits; for Allah loveth not transgressors. (Surah al-Baqarah:190)

  
To those against whom war is made, Permission is Given (to fight) because they are wronged ― and verily, Allah is Most Powerful for their aid.  (They are) those who have been expelled from their homes in defiance of right ― (for no cause) except that they say, “Our Lord is Allah.”  Did not Allah Check one set of people by means of another there would surely have been pulled down monasteries, churches, synagogues, and mosques, in which the name of Allah is commemorated in abundant measure.  Allah will certainly Aid those who aid His (Cause); for verily Allah is Full of Strength, Exalted in Might, (Able to enforce His Will). (Surah al-Hajj:39-40)

The people of Makkah took a different view, seeing the Muslim raids as banditry and a challenge to the pre-eminence of Makkah.  By late 623 and early 624 CE, the Muslim ghazawat, the raids grew increasingly brazen and frequent.  In September 623, Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.) himself led a force of 200 in an unsuccessful raid against a large caravan.  Shortly thereafter, the Quraysh launched their own raid against Madina just to steal some livestock which belonged to the Muslims.  In January 624 CE, the Muslims ambushed a Makkan caravan near Nakhlah, just outside Makkah, killing one of the guards.  The raid occurred in the month of Rajab in which fighting was prohibited and a clear affront to their pagan traditions.

In the spring of 624 CE, Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.) received word from his intelligence sources that one of the richest trade caravans of the year, commanded by Abu Sufyan (r.a.) and guarded by thirty to forty men, was travelling south from Syria.  The Prophet (s.a.w.) gathered an army of over 313 men, the largest army the Muslims had ever put in the field.  The goods contained in the caravan were the belongings of the Muslims which were taken by the Makkans following the migration to Madina.

Prophet Muhammad’s (s.a.w.) forces included such eminent swahabah as Abu Bakr asw-Swiddiq (r.a.), ‘Umar ibn al-Khaththab (r.a.), ‘Ali ibn Abi Thalib (k.w.), Hamzah ibn ‘Abd al-Muththalib (r.a.), Musw`ab ibn ‘Umayr (r.a.), az-Zubayr ibn al-‘Awwam (r.a.), ‘Ammar ibn Yasir (r.a.), and Abu Dzar al-Ghifari (r.a.).  The Muslims also brought seventy camels and two horses, meaning that they either had to walk or fit three to four men per camel.  However, many early Muslim sources indicate that no serious fighting was expected.

It is recorded in Swahih al-Bukhari that al-Bara’ah ibn Malik al-Answari (r.a.) narrated, “We, the companions of Muhammad (s.a.w.), used to say that the number of the warriors of Badr was the same as the number of Saul’s companions who crossed the river (of Jordan) with him, and none crossed the river with him but a believer, and there were over three hundred and ten men.

Many of the Quraysh nobles joined the Makkan army.  They included ‘Amr ibn Hisham who is better known as Abu Jahl, Walid ibn ‘Utbah, and ‘Umayyah ibn Khalaf.  The Muslims were approaching the wells where they planned to either waylay the caravan or to fight the Makkan army at Badr.  Badr was along the Syrian trade route where the caravan would be expected to stop or where the Makkan army would come to protect the caravan.  However, several Muslim scouts were discovered by scouts from the caravan and Abu Sufyan (r.a.) made a hasty turn towards Yanbu.  Shaykh ibn Ishaq (r.a.) said that Abu Sufyan (r.a.) himself rode ahead to reconnoitre the area and discovered the Muslim scouts via the dates left in their camels’ droppings.


Behold!  Allah Promised you one of the two (enemy) parties, that it should be yours: ye wished that the one unarmed should be yours, but Allah Willed to Justify the Truth according to His Words, and to Cut off the roots of the unbelievers. (Surah al-Anfal:7)

When the word reached the Muslim army about the departure of the Makkan army, Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.) immediately called a council of war, since there was still time to retreat and because many of the fighters there were recent converts, who had only pledged to defend Madina.  Under the terms of the constitution of Madina, they would have been within their rights to refuse to fight and leave the army.

As recorded in Swahih Muslim, it has been narrated on the authority of Anas ibn Malik (r.a.) that when the news of the advance of Abu Sufyan (r.a.) at the head of a force reached him, the Messenger of Allah (s.a.w.) held consultations with his swahabah.  Abu Bakr (r.a.) spoke, but the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.) did not pay heed to him.  Then ‘Umar spoke (r.a.), but he did not pay heed to him either.  Then Sa’d ibn ‘Ubadah (r.a.) stood up and said, “Messenger of Allah, you want us to speak.  By Allah in Whose Hand is my soul, if you order us to plunge our horses into the sea, we would do so.  If you order us to goad our horses to the most distant place like Bark al-Ghimad, we would do so.”

A day's march from Badr, several Muslim outriders who had ridden ahead of the main column captured two Makkan water carriers at the Badr wells.  Expecting them to say they were with the caravan, the Muslims were surprised to hear them say they were with the Quraysh army.  Upon hearing the names of all the Quraysh nobles accompanying the army, Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.) exclaimed, “Makkah has thrown unto you the best morsels of her liver.”  The next day, the Prophet (s.a.w.) ordered a forced march to Badr and arrived before the Quraysh.

The wells of Badr were located on the gentle slope of the eastern side of Yalyal valley.  The western side of the valley was hemmed in by a large hill called ‘Aqanqal.  When the Muslim army arrived from the east, Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.) initially chose to form his army at the first well he encountered.  al-Hubab ibn al-Mundzir (r.a.) asked him if this choice was Revelation or the Prophet’s (s.a.w.) own opinion.  When the Prophet’s (s.a.w.) responded in the latter, Hubab (r.a.) suggested that the Muslims occupy the well closest to the Quraysh, and fill in the other ones.  The Prophet’s (s.a.w.) accepted this decision and moved right away.

Although many Arab armies brought their women and children along on campaigns to motivate and care for the men, the Quraysh did not.  They had also made no effort to contact their tribal allies.  The Quraysh had little to time to prepare for a proper campaign in their haste to protect the caravan.  They also believed, since they knew they outnumbered the Muslims by three to one, it would be a no contest.  Furthermore, they did not expect to face the new Muslims of Makkah, only the Quraysh rebels, the muhajirun.

When the Quraysh reached Juhfah, just south of Badr, they received a message from Abu Sufyan (r.a.) telling them the caravan was safely behind them, and that they could therefore return to Makkah.  At this point, Abu Jahl wanted to continue, but several of the clans present, including Banu Zuhrah and Banu ‘Adi, promptly went home.  A contingent of Banu Hashim, hesitant to fight their own clansmen, also left with them.  Despite these setbacks, Abu Jahl was still determined to fight, boasting, “We will not go back until we have been to Badr.”  During this period, Abu Sufyan (r.a.) and several other men from the caravan joined the main army.

At midnight on the day of the battle, the Quraysh broke camp and marched into the valley of Badr.  It had rained the previous day and they struggled to move their horses and camels up the hill of ‘Aqanqal.  After they descended from ‘Aqanqal, they set up another camp inside the valley.  While they rested, they sent out a scout, ‘Umayr ibn Wahb (r.a.) to reconnoitre the Muslim lines.  ‘Umayr (r.a.) reported that Prophet Muhammad’s (s.a.w.) army was small, and that there were no other Muslim reinforcements which might join the battle.  However, he also predicted extremely heavy Quraysh casualties in the event of an attack.  This further demoralised the Quraysh, as Arab battles were traditionally low-casualty affairs, and set off another round of bickering among their leadership.  ‘Amr ibn Hisham quashed the remaining dissent by appealing to the Quraysh’s sense of honour and demanding that they fulfill their blood vengeance.

Narrated ibn ‘Abbas (r.a.), “On the day of the battle of Badr, the Prophet (s.a.w.) said, ‘O Allah!  I appeal to You to fulfill Your Covenant and Promise.  O Allah!  If Your Will is that none should worship You, then Give victory to the pagans.’

Then Abu Bakr took hold of him by the hand and said, ‘This is sufficient for you.’

The Prophet (s.a.w.) came out saying, ‘Their multitude will be put to flight and they will show their backs.”  This is recorded in Swahih al-Bukhari.

The Prophet (s.a.w.) had seen Jibril (a.s.) holding the reins of a white horse and behind him were thousands of angels.  The Promise of Allah (s.w.t.) had come to pass.

The battle began with champions from both armies emerging to engage in combat.  The Quraysh sent forth three champions: ‘Utbah ibn Rabi’ah, Walid ibn ‘Utbah and Shaybah ibn Rabi’ah.  Three of the Answar emerged from the Muslim ranks to challenge them but the Quraysh wanted to fight their kinsmen.  So, the Prophet (s.a.w.) called on Hamzah ibn ‘Abd al-Muththalib (r.a.), ‘Ubaydah ibn al-Harits (r.a.) and ‘Ali ibn Abi Thalib (k.w.) to come forward.  It was a three-on-three melee.  Hamzah (r.a.) killed his opponent ‘Utbah; ‘Ali (k.w.) killed his opponent Walid; ‘Ubaydah (r.a.) was wounded by his opponent Shaybah, but eventually killed him.

As recorded in Swahih al-Bukhari, it was narrated by ‘Abdullah ibn Mas’ud (r.a.), “I witnessed al-Miqdad ibn al-Aswad in a scene which would have been dearer to me than anything had I been the hero of that scene.  He came to the Prophet (s.a.w.) while the Prophet (s.a.w.) was urging the Muslims to fight with the pagans.  al-Miqdad said, ‘We will not say as the People of Moses said, ‘Go you and your Lord and fight you two.’  But we shall fight on your right and on your left and in front of you and behind you.”  I saw the face of the Prophet (s.a.w.) getting bright with happiness, for that saying delighted him.”

Now both armies began shooting arrows at each other.  A few Muslims and an unknown number of Quraysh warriors were killed.  Before the real attack began, the Prophet (s.a.w.) had given orders for the Muslims to attack with their ranged weapons, and only engage the Quraysh with melee weapons when they advanced.  Now he gave the order to charge, throwing a handful of pebbles at the Makkans saying, “Defaced be those faces!”

The Muslim army shouted, “O thou whom Allah has Made victorious, slay!” and rushed the Quraysh lines.  With them came a wind and the angels had joined the battle.  The Quraysh broke and ran.  The battle itself only lasted a few hours and was over by the early afternoon.


Allah had Helped you at Badr, when ye were a contemptible little force; then fear Allah; thus may ye show your gratitude.  Remember thou saidst to the faithful, “Is it not enough for you that Allah should Help you with three thousand angels (specially) sent down?”  Yea ― if ye remain firm, and act aright, even if the enemy should rush here on you in hot haste, your Lord would Help you with five thousand angels, making a terrific onslaught. (Surah Ali ‘Imran:123-125)

The Quraysh losses were seventy dead and seventy captured.  ‘Ali (r.a.) alone accounted for eighteen of the dead.  Muslim losses amounted to fourteen martyrs.  The Battle of Badr was prophesied in the Bible by the Prophet Isaiah (a.s.).  It was described as a battle between the sons of Ishmael (a.s.); the children of Tema who settled in Yathrib and the children of Kedar who settled in Bakka.  Muhammad (s.a.w.) was rejected by his people in Makkah, Bakka, and migrated to Madina, Yathrib.

Isaiah 21:13-17
13 The burden in Arabia.  In the forest at evening you shall sleep, in the paths of Dedanim.  14 Meeting the thirsty bring him water, you that inhabit the land of the south, meet with bread him that flees.  15 For they are fled from before the swords, from the sword that hung over them, from the bent bow, from the face of a grievous battle.  16 For thus says the Lord to me: “Within a year, according to the years of a hireling, all the glory of Kedar shall be taken away.  17 And the residue of the number of strong archers of the children of Kedar shall be diminished: for the Lord the God of Israel has spoken it.”

In summary, the Muslims had 314 men, including the Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.).  They had 70 camels and two horses.  They took turns riding the camels to the Wells of Badr, 130 km southwest of Madina.  In contrast, the Quraysh had 900 infantry, 100 horses and 170 camels.  The result was a decisive victory for the believers and a humiliating defeat for the Quraysh.  The Muslims had 14 shuhadah.  In contrast, the Quraysh lost 70 and had another 70 captured.  ‘Amr ibn Hashim, Abu Jahl and Abu Lahab, who was back in Makkah, perished as a result of the battle.  Due to the loss of so many of their leaders, Abu Sufyan (r.a.) became the leader of the Quraysh.  Six years later, he embraced Islam.

The 17th of Ramadan is the Anniversary of the Battle of Badr.  There is a majlis commemorating the event known as Majlis Badr.  It is a recitation of the names and the invocation of the blessings of Allah (s.w.t.) upon them and upon the reciters.  Narrated ibn ‘Abbas (r.a.), as recorded in Swahih al-Bukhari, “The believers who failed to join the Ghazwah of Badr and those who took part in it are not equal (in reward).”


We should remind ourselves that Asma' Ahl Badr, the names of the Muslim warriors of the Battle of Badr are jalali, majestic.  They need the jamal, beauty of swalawat to cool them.  So, before we recite these, and after completing the recitation, it is recommended to recite swalawat.

Of the Asma’ Ahl Badr, 313 fought on the side of the Prophet (s.a.w.).  They are the first to come to the aid of their Prophet (s.a.w.) out of the thousands to come in his lifetime and the more than a billion who will hear the call in times to come.  For that, they have no equal.  When they decided to stand with the Prophet (s.a.w.), it was pure faith.  As far as the evidence of the eye, the Muslims had no advantages.  They were outnumbered by three to one.  They had less camels and horses.  They did not have enough weapons and some fought with sticks.  Many had no armour and they either fought wearing padded cloth or some went bare-bodied.  They were the first of the believers and soon, it seemed, they were likely to be the last.  The Quraysh, on the other hand, besides the numerical advantage, also had good morale initially.  They had sizeable cavalry; they were well-armed and most wore scale mail or chainmail.  But of course, it is Allah (s.w.t.) Who has a Say in all affairs.

The mantles of the prophets are inherited by the awliya’.  And the mantles of the swahabah are likewise inherited by the awliya’ as well.  And when their time is past, the next generation inherits from the generation previous in a silsilah of karamah.  This is important for the salik to understand.  Nothing in Islam is wasted and Allah (s.w.t.) Abhors waste.  When the Mahdi (a.s.) finally appears, he will have his rijal, his Ahl Badr.  They will be the core of the army of the believers.  Each of them is a wali and each of them has inherited the mantle of a swahabah from Badr.  And just like how it began at Badr, it will be so again.  Islam came as a stranger and it will come again as a stranger.
