  • This mountain is a very special mountain to all Muslims in the world as it was the place that the second conflict that the Holy Prophet Muhammad ( peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) and His beloved companions countered with the powerful disbelievers armies of that time. The army if Islam fought really hard and bravely, it was a very difficult conflict the countered. In that conflict the army of Islam was defeated by the army of disbelievers and around seventy companions were martyred.
