The Jung-e-Yamama was fought in December 632 as part as the Ridda Wars (“Apostate Wars”) on the plain of Aqraba in the region of Al-Yamama (in present-day Saudi Arabia) between the forces of Muslim Caliph Abu Bakr Al Siddiq R.A and Musaylimah Kazab, a self-proclaimed prophet. The battle played a major role in motivating Abu Bakr to complete the compilation of the Qur’an because in this battle more than 70 huffaz (Muslims who had memorized the Qur’an) were martyred and after that Abu Bakr ordered the collection of all the surviving pieces of the Qur’an into one copy and the rest be burnt.
