The patrol of Buwat[3] took place in October 623 or 2 A.H. of the Islamic calendar, in the month of Rabi' al-awwal. Muhammad went with a force of 200 men, to search for raiding parties of the Quraysh.[3] Muhammad stayed at Buwat for some time and left without engaging in combat.[3]

Background and raid[edit]

Approximately a month after the patrol of Wadden, Muhammad personally led two hundred men including Muhajirs and Ansars to Bawat, a place on the caravan route of the Quraysh raiders, led by Umayyah ibn Khalaf.[3][4][5] Ibn Khalaf was known for torturing Muslims like Bilal Ibn Rabah and had strongly opposed Islam.[6] However, no battle took place.[3] According, to Haykal, Umayyah ibn Khalaf took another route.[5] Muhammad then went up to Dhat al-Saq, in the desert of al-Khabar. He prayed there and a mosque was built at the spot.[citation needed]
