Battle of Khaybar (629 CE)
A battle fought in 629 CE against the Jews living at the Khaybar oasis.

The Muslim victory allowed them to gather sufficient resources to capture Mecca 18 months later.

Khaybar was the first territory conquered by the Muslim state. When the Jews surrendered after a siege, Muhammad allowed them to remain in Khaybar if they handed over one half of their annual produce.
