The Messenger invasions in the month of Ramadan
The Messenger, may God’s prayers and peace be upon him, carried out two raids during the month of Ramadan. As for the third battle, which is the Battle of Hunayn, there is a difference between scholars, whether it was Ramadan or Shawwal, but it is most likely in Shawwal.
As for the two invasions that are certain to be in the month of Ramadan, they are:
As for the polytheists, their number was a thousand, and they were headed by Abu Jahl, and during this raid 22 companions were martyred, 70 polytheists were killed, 70 polytheists were wounded, and the Muslims won in this invasion.
But in the eighth year of the Hijra, the Banu Bakr Khuza’a attacked the ally of the Muslims and assisted them with the Quraish with weapons and equipment, so the Messenger ordered that he go out to Mecca to support his allies from Khuza’a.
And he began preparing the army of Muslims in secret until the people of Makkah were surprised by them. Indeed, the Quraysh did not feel them until they approached them, and the army of Muslims was distributed into battalions.
The Messenger took command of a battalion, Khalid bin Al-Walid took a battalion, Al-Zubair bin Al-Awam took over a battalion, and Abu Ubaidah took the men and those who had no shields with them.
The conquest of Mecca was and still is one of the greatest conquests that have passed in Islamic history, and as for the dead in this conquest, they did not exceed dozens.
The difference between raid and covert
- Regarding the invasion: it is the one in which the Messenger himself participated, and the conquest is to go to the enemy’s homeland to fight him, and these invasions began in the seventh century AD with the emergence of Islam.
The goal of the invasion is the struggle of Muslims for the sake of God, and the fight against the infidels, and the defense of the lives and honor of Muslims while ceasing harm and oppression from them, while raising the word of Islam.
- As for the companies, they are the wars that the Messenger sent the army with, but he did not participate in them, and these companies used to go out at night.
The number of its participants ranges from five to three hundred individuals, and it is said that the number of these companies are 50 companies, while the number of raids is 27.
