Badr Martyrs

The Battle of Badr occurred on 17 Ramadan, 2 AH, where 313 Muslims fought an epic battle against 1000 men. The Muslims were very poorly equipped, with only two horses and hardly any weapons.

It was with the Divine support by Allah Azzawajal, the Muslims Triumphed. In the end 17 Muslims were Martyred.

Those Muslims who fought at Badr became known as the badrīyūn and carry a special status, as the highest-ranked of Muslims.

Jibrel came to the Prophet (ﷺ) and said, “How do you look upon the warriors of Badr among yourselves?” The Prophet (ﷺ) said, “As the best of the Muslims.” On that, Jibreel said, “And so are the Angels who participated in the Badr (battle).
