|Commanders and leaders|
The expedition against the Banu Salim tribe, also known as the Al Kudr Invasion occurred directly after the Battle of Badr in the year 2 A.H of the Islamic calendar. The expedition was ordered by Muhammad after he received intelligence that the Banu Salim were planning to invade Madina.
So Muhammad responded by launching a pre-emptive strike against their base in Al Kudr, which was a watering place at the time. When the tribe heard of this, they fled. Muhammad captured 500 of their camels from the raid, and distributed it between his fighters. He also kept a fifth of the spoils.
This event is mentioned in Ibn Hisham's biography of Muhammad, and other historical books . Modern secondary sources which mention this, include the award winning book, Ar-Raheeq Al-Makhtum (The Sealed Nectar)
