Expedition of Umar ibn al-Khatab[3] to Turbah took place in July 628 AD,3rd Month 7AH, of the Islamic Calendar.[4]

The expedition was led by Umar, at the order of Muhammad. [5][6]

Expedition to Turbah[edit]

After returning to Medina from the Campaign of Wadi al-Qura, Muhammad sent Umar ibn al-Khattab with 30 men, against a branch of the tribes of Banu Hawazin at Turbah, a distance of 4 nights march from Medina. Turbah was on the way to Sana and Najjran.[7] Umar’s troop travelled by night and hid by day. By the time the Muslim army arrived at the habitation, Banu Hawazin already got news of the impending Muslim attack and they fled for their lives, according to the Muslim scholar "Saifur Rahman al Mubarakpuri".[8][9][10]
