The Invasion of Buhran occurred in 3 A.H of the Islamic calendar of the 4th or 5th month.[1] Muhammad sent 300 troops to Buhran, in the area of Al-Furu, to raid the Banu Sulaym.[2]

Throughout the invasion, they did not meet any enemies, and no fighting took place. Muhammad occupied the area for three months. The expedition is regarded as a "patrolling invasion", according to Muslim scholar Saifur Rahman al-Mubarakpuri.[3]

This event is mentioned in Ibn Hisham's biography of Muhammad, and other historical sources.[4] Modern secondary sources which mention this include the award-winning book [5] Ar-Raheeq Al-Makhtum (The Sealed Nectar).[3]

After this raid, Muhammad also accepted ransom for some of the prisoners he captured in Badr.[2]
