Today the 17th of ramadan, we commemorate the battle of badr. the first and one of the greatest battles of islam.
the muslim army of around 313 who were poorly-equipped defeated the quraish with over 950.
during the battle of badr, the prophet muhammad ﷺ stood up all night in prayer seeking allah's help.
o allah, grant me what you have promised me, o allah, give me what you have promised me. o allah, if this small band of muslims perishes, you will no longer be worshipped on earth.
he kept on crying out to his lord, stretching out his hands, facing towards the qibla, until his cloak fell from his shoulders.
by allah’s decree 5,000 angels descended from heaven to assist the muslims in this battle to achieve victory over the quraish.
14 companions were martyred in the battle. their names are listed at the site of the battle.
can you just imagine living and witnessing this important event. never underestimate the power of your dua.
may allah grant victory as he did to his prophet.
