Day of Decision The Battle of Badr

The definitive account of the Battle of Badr, considered the greatest battle of mankind – this new book combines scholarly commentary with on the ground research (Dr Mostafa travels to all the locations and corrects many notions of previous accounts). Replete with colour photographs, maps and diagrams this edition sets a new standard on a key moment in the life of the Prophet may Allah bless him and give him peace.

In the Qur’an it is called Yawm al-Furqan, ‘the Day of Decision’. In Ramadan 2 (March 624) two armies met at Badr, a remote spot in the Arabian desert. A small but well-equipped army of about one thousand pagans was defeated by just 313 Muslims, ill-equipped but divinely aided and spiritually unconquerable. To quote the author of this book: ‘To outsiders, this would have seemed no more than a minor skirmish between desert tribesmen. Neither the combatants, nor the location, nor the outcome had the least importance in the eyes of the wider world, where in those days the two major powers were the Persian and Byzantine empires.’ And yet there is ample reason to consider Badr the most momentous battle in history. Had the leading Muslims not survived, there would have been little prospect of Islam, the last true religion, surviving. The world’s history would have been unimaginably different.
