Invasion of Buhran

The Invasion of Buhran occurred in 3 A.H of the Islamic calendar of the 4th or 5th month.[1] A report had arrived to the Muslims that a formidable force of the Banu Sulaym from Buhran were advancing on Madinah.[2] Muhammad, took 300 men, to Hijaz reaching to Buhran, where the Banu Sulaym fled in panic.[2]

Throughout the expedition, they did not meet any enemies, and no fighting took place. 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 modern Islamic sources such as Ar-Raheeq Al-Makhtum by Saifur Rahman Al-Mubarakpuri.[4]
