Expedition of Ka’b ibn 'Umair al-Ghifari[6] to Dhat Atlah, took place in July 629 AD, 8AH, 3rd month, of the Islamic Calendar.[7]

Expedition

According to the Muslim Scholar "Saifur Rahman al Mubarakpuri", Muhammad received some information that the Banu Quda‘a (Tribe of Quda'a) had gathered a large number of men to attack the Muslim positions. So Muhammad despatched Ka’b ibn 'Umair al-Ghifari al-Ansari at the head of 15 men[8] to deal with this situation to a location beyond Wadi al-Qura (part of Syria).[9]

They encountered the army, and called them to accept Islam, but the polytheists refused and showered the Muslims with arrows killing all of them except one(who pretended to be dead[10]) who was carried back home later seriously wounded to tell Mohammed what had happened.[11]

Muhammad was upset by this and planned an expedition to avenge his followers. The plan was cancelled when Muhammad learnt that the enemy had deserted the place.[12]
