The Battle of Waddan or Battle of Abwa was the first battle involving Muslim forces and the Prophet Muhammad. The caravan raids took place from 623 to 624, which led to the Battle of Badr. These battles were called Ghazawat, battles in which Muhhamad participated. Most of the battles which took place in Waddan Abwa were small skirmishes: sometimes only arrows were fired and no casualties took place; they were mainly a prelude to a bigger war.
After Muhammad and his followers had migrated to Medina in 622, the Quraysh confiscated the belongings they had left behind. From Medina, the Muslims attacked several of the Quraysh's caravans traveling from Syria to Mecca. In 624, Abu Sufyan was the leader of one caravan, and as a Muslim force moved to intercept him, he called for help from the Quraysh. This resulted in the Battle of Badr, which ended in a Muslim victory. However, Abu Sufyan managed to bring his caravan home to Mecca. The death of most Quraysh leaders in the battle left him the leader of Mecca.[2 ]
This is my eye, it has been injured for the sake of Allah and Islam.
The Caravan of Al Dhamri was raided. Negotiations began and the two leaders signed a treaty of non-aggression, pledging Dharma to not attack Muslims or side with the Quraysh, and Muhammad to not attack the caravans of Dharmi or seize their goods, and to not attack the tribe, and make peace with them.[2 ]
