THIS BATTLE WAS FOUGHT BETWEEN THE KUFFAR OF MAKKAH LEAD BY ABU SOFIYAN AND KHALID BIN WALEED IN TOE . THE INGEUNITY OF HAZRAT SALMAAN FARSI(a r) WAS SUCH THAT HE GAVE AN IDEA AND MOST LABORIOUSLY IMPLEMENTED IT BY DIGGING A TRENCH AROUND MADINAH SO THAT THE ENEMIES WERE NOT ABLE TO ENTER FROM ALL SIDES AND WHILE CROSSING THE TRENCH THEY COULD BE EASILY TACKLED. THE RATIO WAS 1: 8 AS MUSLIMS WERE 3000 WHILE THE KUFFAR , JEWS AND INFIDELS AND PAGANS WERE 24 TO 30 K..SO THE SALAMAN FARSI’S IDEA OF A TRENCH AND MAULA ALI (a s ) KILLING AMAR IBNE ABDUWUD WAS THE WINNER .
AMR IBNE ABDUWUD THE MOST FEROCIOUS WARRIER CROSSED THE TRENCH WITH HIS SIX COMPANIONS AND CHALLANGED THRICE .ASHAAB E PAYAMBER WERE ALL THERE , NO ONE CAME FORWARD , SUCH WERE THE STORIES OF FERROCIOSNES OF AMR HAD SCARED HIS FEAR WAS SUCH THAT NO ONE ANSWERED HIS CHALLENGE EXCEPT MAULA ALI IBNE ABI TALIB (a s ) WHEN NO ONE ELSE TOOK UP THE CHALLENGE, RASOOL E AKRAM (saaws) GAVE PERMISSION AND SAID WHILE SENDING HIM WITH HIS DRESS EXCHANGED ” HERE GOES THE KULLE EIMAAN TO CONFRONT THE KULLE KUFFR” . THE WAY THE MIGHTY AMR IBNE ABDUWUD FELL TO THE GROUND IS HISTORY . WHEN HAZRAT ALI RETURNED VICTOR.THE PROPHET (s) SAID .” VERILY ONE stroke of Ali at the day of Khandaq is heavier than all the good deeds of my Ummah until the day of judgement ”
