The Background of Mount Uhud

The peak of the mountain is famous as the scene of the decisive Battle of Uhud. War erupted as the Muslim and Meccan armies met again after the Battle of Badr. It happened when the Meccans tried to vengeance for their loss in the Battle of Badr by initiating an attempt on the forces led by Prophet Mohammad (PBUH). It seemed like the end result of the fight favored the Muslims, but a crucial error on their part changed everything. Some Muslims from the company of Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) disobeyed him by surrendering their places. This opened the door for a destructive counterattack by Meccan snipers in their army. It was a devastating raid, taking the lives of many valuable people, including the Holy Prophet’s uncle.

  • It is reported that on the day of the battle, the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) offered the Duhr prayer at this spot.
