Expedition of Alqammah bin Mujazziz

Expedition of Alqammah bin Mujazziz,[1] took place in September 630 AD, 9AH, 4th month, of the Islamic Calendar.[2][3][4][5] This expedition was dispatched to fight against some men from Abyssinia (Ethiopia), who gathered near the shores of Jeddah. The Ethiopians approached Makkah using boats from the sea, leading some Muslims to flee the area, suspecting the Ethiopians of being pirates.

News reached the Islamic prophet Muhammad, who sent ‘Alqamah bin Mujazziz Al-Mudlaji to the shores of Jeddah, with 300 men. The Muslim fighters crossed the sea till they got to an island. But as soon as the suspected pirates had learned of the Muslims’ arrival, they fled.[4][6][7]
