Battle of Badr

The battle of Badr proved as a foundation of Muslim strength as they were quite a few in numbers, who were given the eventual victory against the mighty and well armed disbelievers of Quraysh. The Battle of Badr was fought on 17 Ramadan, 2nd Hijri.

The first battle between the believers of faith and the forces of evil was fought on the battlefield of Badr which is a place 60 miles from Madinah. On one side stood a small army of 313 men and facing them was a well armoured and well equipped army of 1000 men with 700 camels and 300 horses.

The believers had the strength of their faith in Allah and His Prophet ﷺ. They knew that truth will prevail and falsehood will be annihilated which brought about the miracle and truth ultimately emerged victorious.
