Badar Battle Ground

Badar Battle Ground

It is about 70 miles from Medina and about 100 miles by road. It takes more than 1 hour and 45 minutes to drive to Badr.

In the days of the Prophet (he has peace and blessings), it would have taken much longer to get there.

The number of Muslims was high at a ratio of 1: 3. The Muslim army was about 313 unequipped, and the Quraysh were more than 950 equipped. Well-known colleagues such as Abu Bakr, Umar, Ali, Hamza, Mus'ab ibn'Umair, AzZubair bin Al'Awwam, Ammar ibn Yasir, Abu Dharr al Ghifari participated (Can Allah please all of them?).

Uthman was unable to attend because the Prophet (who has peace and blessings) instructed him to take care of his sick wife, Ruqayya, who is also the Prophet's daughter.

14 companions were martyred in the battle. Their names are listed at the site of the battle:

1)Sayyiduna ‘Umayr ibn Abi Waqas. رضي الله عنه
