Today in Middle Eastern history: the Battle of Badr (624)

The Battle of Badr was a small affair, involving maybe around 1250 combatants in total, but seeing as how it was the the first military victory by a Muslim army (of sorts), I suppose you could say it’s pretty important. It was the first of three named battles between Muhammad’s Medinan followers and the Quraysh who’d chased him out of Mecca, a series that, as we know, ended with a Muslim victory and, well, the rest is history.
