The Battle of Badar

The first battle between the believers of truth (Islam) and the forces of evil was fought on the battlefield of Badar which is located 60 miles from Medina towards Mecca.

On one side stood a small group of 313 men of whom merely 60 wore armour. While facing them, was arranged an army of 1,000 warriors, well armed and equipped. The believers had the strength of their faith in Allah and his Holy Prophet (Peace be upon Him). They knew that the truth must prevail and falsehood must be destroyed. Thus it was this very faith which brought about the miracle and truth did triumph.
