Mohammed’s victory at Badr and ongoing Jihad caused the Quraysh to travel by a different route to Syria. They hired a new guide to take them over the new route. Mohammed had information about their route and sent a party to raid them. They were carrying a great deal of silver when the caravan stopped at a watering hole. The Muslims surprised them and the Quraysh managed to escape, but Mohammed’s men stole all the caravan’s goods, including the silver. The stolen goods were delivered to Mohammed in Medina.
