Jang E Badar: The First Victory Of Islam


Jang E Badar: The First Victory of Islam




Jang E Badar, or the Battle of Badr, was the first major battle fought by the Muslims against the Quraish of Mecca. It took place on 17 Ramadan, 2 AH (13 March, 624 CE) near the well of Badr in the Arabian Peninsula. The battle was a decisive victory for the Muslims, who were outnumbered and outmatched by the Quraish. The battle also marked the fulfillment of a prophecy made by Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) that Allah would send angels to assist the believers in their fight.




Jang E Badar: The First Victory of Islam



The battle was triggered by a raid led by Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) and his companions on a Quraish caravan returning from Syria. The caravan was carrying valuable goods and was guarded by only 40 men. The Muslims intended to capture the caravan as a compensation for their properties and belongings that were confiscated by the Quraish when they migrated from Mecca to Medina. However, the Quraish got wind of the raid and sent a large army of about 1000 men to protect the caravan and confront the Muslims.


The Muslims, who were only about 313 in number, had to face a difficult decision: whether to attack the caravan or face the Quraish army. Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) consulted his companions and they agreed to fight the Quraish, trusting in Allah's help and guidance. The Muslims reached the well of Badr before the Quraish and took a strategic position. They also dug a trench behind them to prevent any surprise attack from the rear.


The Quraish arrived at Badr and were surprised to see the Muslims ready for battle. They tried to intimidate the Muslims with their superior numbers, weapons and equipment. They also boasted about their idols and mocked the Muslims for their faith. The Quraish leaders also challenged the Muslims to single combat, which was accepted by some of the brave companions of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). The Muslims won most of these duels, killing some of the prominent Quraish chiefs.


The battle then began in earnest, with both sides exchanging arrows and spears. The Muslims fought with courage and determination, while the Quraish fought with arrogance and pride. Allah sent down His angels to support the Muslims, as promised by Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). The angels fought alongside the Muslims, striking fear and confusion in the hearts of the Quraish. The Quraish soon lost their morale and started to flee from the battlefield. The Muslims pursued them and captured many of them as prisoners. Some of them were later released after paying ransom or teaching literacy to some of the Muslims.


The battle of Badr was a turning point in the history of Islam. It proved that Allah was with His messenger and His believers, and that He would grant them victory over their enemies. It also boosted the confidence and faith of the Muslims, who realized that they could overcome any obstacle with Allah's help. It also humiliated and weakened the Quraish, who lost many of their leaders and warriors in the battle. The battle also fulfilled a prophecy made by Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) in Surah Al-Anfal, verse 65: "O Prophet! Urge on the believers to fight; if there be twenty steadfast among you they shall overcome two hundred; and if there be a hundred steadfast among you they shall overcome a thousand of those who disbelieve."
