Conquest of Mecca 

Conquest of Mecca 

The conquest of Mecca, led by the Holy Prophet (S.A.W) was a result of the Quraysh tribe breaking the Hudaybiyya treaty, meant to keep peace between the people of Mecca and Muslim pilgrams who came to perform Hajj or Umra after an incident whereby people from the Quraysh targetted and kidnapped a caravan of Muslims. The treaty was broken by a war between the Banu Khuza’a tribe, a tribe allied with the Muslims, and the Banu Bakr tribe, who were allied with the Quraysh, in which members from the Quraysh killed some men from the Banu Khuza’a tribe. The conquest of Mecca began on the 10th of Ramadan, as the Prophet led an army of Muslims from Medina to Mecca. The conquering of Mecca is said by historians and scholars to either fall on the 13th of Ramadan or the 20th of Ramadan. This battle marks the day in which the Muslims seized Mecca forever.
