JUST a couple of days ago, it was the 17th day of Ramadhan 2013…

…and over 1400 years ago, also on the 17th of Ramadhan 2 A.H. the Great Expedition of Badr – the first battle of the Prophet (saw) – took place. It is so significant that Allah mentioned this battle in the Qur’an and gave it a special name – ‘The Day of Distinguishing.’ Allah says:

‘If you believe in Allah and what We sent down on Our servant on the Day of Distinguishing, the day the two hosts met.’ (8: 41)
