Today, 17 Ramadhan, is the anniversary of the Battle of Badr which took place in 2 AH (624 CE).

In this thread I'll go through 13 landmarks associated with the battle, from the point the Prophet (ﷺ) and the Sahabah left Madinah to the aftermath of the battle.

Masjid Suqya

This is located 2km from Masjid-e-Nabwi, near the Anbariya train station.

When the Prophet (ﷺ) departed for the battle of Badr he stopped here, performed ablution and offered salah. He then supplicated for the dwellers of Madinah and paraded his forces.
Irq al-Zabiyyah

This is where the Prophet (ﷺ) and the Sahabah stopped on the 14th Ramadhan on their march to Badr.

The Prophet (ﷺ) consulted with the Sahabah here whether they should go forward and fight against the mushrikeen (polytheists) of Makkah.

The Muslims, including the Prophet (صَلّى اللهُ عليهِ وسلّم) numbered only 313 with only 2 horses and 70 camels. The Quraysh army on the other hand had over 1000 men, 100 horses, 700 camels and were armed to their teeth.

Masjid Areesh today marks the spot where the Prophet (صَلّى اللهُ عليهِ وسلّم) pitched his tent. The site also functioned as the planning headquarters for the Muslims.
