Our Prophet (saas) turned the army’s back on the mountain and took sides against the enemy who was occupying the barren land in front of him. As in Badr, our Prophet (saas) again placed the army in its proper place. He guarded the places where the enemy could infiltrate and lay siege with archers.

“Do not leave your places, whether the enemy is defeated or not,” he said.
