624 ADThe Battle of Badr between 313 ill-equipped Muslims and 1000 well-equipped Makkan (Quraysh) Kuffar (non believers). The Muslims are victorious. 13 Muslims are martyred and prominent leaders of Quraysh are killed (including Abu Jahl, `Utbah, Shaybah and Walid, leaders of the Quraysh) or captured. Banu Qaynuqa`, one of the Jewish tribes are expelled from Madina for their breach of the Constitution of Madina and a declaration of war on Muslims. 625 ADThe Battle of Uhud between 700 Muslims and 3000 Makkan Quraysh. Ends in stalement with 72 Muslims martyred. 300 hypocrites desert Muslims. The second Jewish tribe of Banu Nadir, expelled from Madina for their treachery and conspiracies to kill the Prophet (SAW) and rebellion. 627 ADThe Battle of the Ditch (Khandaq). Madina besieged by 10,000 Makkans and their confederates for a month. A ditch dug by the Muslims prevents the advance of the enemy. Eventually, after some skirmishes, supplies running short, dissension arose in the enemy army ranks and the weather was bad. Seige was lifted. The men of the third Jewish tribe in Madina - Banu Qurayzah are executed according to a judgment of their own law for rebellion against the state of Madina. Their women and children are sold into slavery and move to the oasis of Khyber.
