The Conquest of Khaibar

In al-Madina al-Munawwara, the army of Islam was getting ready to advance towards the strongholds of the Jewish Khaibar.

The Jews of Khaibar were always plotting to put out the light of Islam. They were always encouraging the Arab tribes to invade Madina to destroy the new Muslim State. So, our Master Mohammad (peace be upon him and his household) decided to uproot the danger of the Jews so that people would live in peace. The Muslim forces reached the road that joined the tribes of Ghatfan and the strongholds of Khaibar to surprise the enemy there. The number of the Muslim Army amounted to one thousand and four-hundred fighters. Two hundred horse riders were with them. The Muslim women took part in the battle, too. The Muslims advanced towards the strongholds. At dawn, they surprised the Jews and besieged them completely. Some Companions launched strong attacks against the Jews. But they were in vain because the Jews faced them with a lot of arrows. The Jews were sneering at our Master Mohammad (peace be upon him and his household) and his soldiers. So, the Prophet (peace be upon him and his household) said: Tomorrow; I'll give the banner to a man. The man loves Allah and his Apostle; Allah and His Apostle love him.

In the morning, some companions wished that the banner would be for them. But our Master Mohammad (peace be upon him and his household) asked Ali, Ja'far's brother. Ali shook the banner strongly and advanced towards the strongholds of the Jews. When Ali killed Marhab, the hero of the Jews, they felt fear. Quickly, the Muslims occupied the strongholds of Khaibar, one by one. Our Master Mohammad (peace be upon him and his household) and the Muslims were filled with happiness. So, they thanked Allah for the victory over their enemies. In the meantime, the immigrants of Habasha headed by Ja'far bin Abu Talib arrived. Our Master Mohammad's happiness doubled. So, he said with a bright smile on his face: I don't know which event is more cheerful - Ja'far's coming or the Conquest of Khaibar!

Our Master Mohammad (peace be upon him and his household) embraced his cousin Ja'far and kissed his forehead and said: Certainly Ja'far and his friends have two immigrations - an immigration to Habasha and an immigration to al-Madina al-Munawwara.
