About this episode

As the lecture on the Battle of Badr continues, Shaykh Yasir now acquaints us in immense detail with the happenings of this battle.

After having gotten consent from all the groups , Prophet ﷺ divided his army into three groups and each of these groups were given flags in Badr - the primary white flag was given to to Mus'ab ibn Umair, on the right hand side, he placed Ali ibn Abi Talib under whom were the muhajiroun and on the left side was Sa'd ibn Mu'adh under whom were the Ansar. The most experienced member of the army of the Quraysh was Umayr ibn Wahb Al Jumahee.

All of the above leaders were young dynamic leaders which shows that the Prophet ﷺ chose leaders who would enjoy immense respect in their group. Ali is the great grandson of Abdul Muttalib who was loved and adored by all and his lineage was of the highest calibre. Sa'd ibn Mu'adh was the future leader of the Ansar.

The Prophet ﷺ arrived at Badr earlier than the Quraysh by a day on the 16th Ramadan in the second year of the Hijrah. The Prophet ﷺ immediately began setting up his camp and tents there.

Taking the advice of his companions and changing decisions based on their thoughts and opinions was something that the Prophet ﷺ always did and sought to do.there are many incidents in the history of Islam that bear testament to this aspect of our beloved Prophet ﷺ. Listen intently to fully fathom the nature via numerous stories told by Shaykh Yasir Qadhi.

The Prophet ﷺ also introduced a new tactic of military battalions marching in rows to fight the opposition which was not known and followed by the Arabs previously. The Arabs had always attacked in circles, they would attack and them come back and so on. Allah taught our Prophet ﷺ this tactic.
