The Battle of Badr

The Battle of Badr is the most important battle in the whole of human history as it firmly established Islam as the only true religion for the whole of humanity till the end of time. It took place on 17 Ramadan 2 A.H, 624 C.E. The beloved holy Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, together with 313 of his Sahaba (Companions) and angels sent by Allah defeated about 1000 better armed polytheists of the tribe of Quraysh.

Fourteen Muslims were martyred, of whom 6 were Muhajirin (Muslims of Makka who had migrated to Madina), and 8 were Ansar (Muslims of Madina who helped the Muhajirin settle in Madina). Of the 8 Ansar, 6 were from the tribe of Khazraj, hence called al-Khazraji, and 2 were from the tribe of Aws, hence called al-Awsi. Their names are as follows in the Arabic alphabet.
