Expedition

In 9AH, August 630 AD, Muhammad sent Qutbah ibn Amir to carry out a raid against the Khath'am tribe. Qutbah ibn Amir was accompanied by 20 men with 10 camels. Qutbah raided the inhabitants while they were asleep and killed many of them.[14] A large amount of people from both sides were killed.

They also captured a large number of camels and goats, as well as some women. All the war booty was brought back to Madinah.[15][16]

According to Muslim sources, the inhabitants then regrouped and chased the Muslims, but because of flooding in the area, the Muslims managed to escape.[17]
