|The Decisive Battle of Truth against Falsehood.|
We will obey you most willingly in whatever you command us, and by Allâh, Who has sent you with the Truth, if you were to ask us to plunge into the sea, we will do that most readily and not a man of us will stay behind. We do not grudge the idea of facing the enemy. We are experienced in war and we are trustworthy in combat. We hope that Allâh will show you through our hands those deeds of valor which will please your eyes. Kindly lead us to the battlefield in the Name of Allâh."
"Hearken, Quraish has sent you their most precious lives."
Rasulullah ﷺ stopped at the nearest spring of Badr. Al-Hubab bin Mundhir RA asked him, "Has Allâh inspired you to choose this very spot or is it stratagem of war and the product of consultation?"
Rasulullah ﷺ replied:
"It is a war stratagem and consultation."
Al-Hubab RA said:
"This place is no good; let us go and encamp on the nearest water well and make a basin or reservoir full of water, then destroy all the other wells so that they will be deprived of the water."
Rasulullah ﷺ approved of his plan and agreed to carry it out, which they actually did at midnight.

The Ansar interrupted: "I captured him, O Messenger of Allâh." Rasulullah ﷺ replied:

They both rushed swiftly towards the spot, and without a moment’s hesitation struck him simultaneously with their swords and finished him off.
