About Rabigh

Rabigh is an ancient city on the Red Sea coast of the Arabian Peninsula, now within the province of Makkah in Saudi Arabia. It is located 17 kilometers northwest of Masjid Miqat al-Juhfah. According to Muslim historic sources, in April 623, the Prophet Muhammad sent Ubaydah ibn al-Harith with a celebration of sixty armed Muhajirun to the valley of Rabigh. They anticipated to intercept a Quraysh caravan that changed into coming back from Syria below the protection of Abu Sufyan ibn Harb and two hundred armed riders.

The Muslim celebration travelled as some distance because the wells at Thanyat al-Murra, in which Ubaydah ibn al-Harith shot an arrow at the Quraysh. This is known as the first arrow of Islam. Despite this surprise assault, "they did not unsheath a sword or technique each other," and the Muslims returned empty-exceeded; but, two Meccan traders left their caravan, have become Muslim, and went with the day trip again to Medina.

The hadith of the pond of Khumm narrates that the Prophet Muhammad is pronounced to have said Ali ibn Abi Talib the mawla of these for whom Muhammad changed into mawla. Shia Muslims take and this hadith as an announcement and investiture of Ali bin Abi Talib because the first caliph or successor after the Prophet's loss of life and that they have a good time this statement every year as Eid al-Ghadeer. Many Sunnis additionally receive that the Prophet did genuinely claim Ali as the mawla, but they decline to trust that this intended succession to the Prophet.
