Another narrative exists also in connection with the reason of revelation of these verses. That is, “At the end of the Battle of ‘Uhud, Abu Sufiyan announced that the battle will be fought again next year at the place of Badr. You should be ready”. The Messenger of Allah Almighty (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) accepted this challenge. When the next year came, he (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) commanded the people to come out for Jihaad (religious crusade).
Mosque of Abu Ubaidah (may Allah be pleased with him) This mosque, in the Jordan Valley, houses the tomb of Abu Ubaidah-bin-Jarrah (may Allah be pleased with him), who was among the Ashura Mubbasharah, the blessed ten companions whom the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be on him) gave glad tidings of their entry into Paradise.
