Description

The Archers’ Hill is a small mountain located in front of Mount Uhud. The hill is also known as Jabal al-Rumah and Jabal Ainain. A lot of Islamic history is tied to both the hill and the mountain because of the famous Battle of Uhud that took place here in the 7th century. In the battle, 50 archers that were posted on the Archers' Hill went against the command of the Prophet Muhammad Peace Be Upon Him (PBUH), which resulted in the Muslims losing the battle.

Battle of Uhud and the Archers Hill

Mount Uhud and Archers' Hill are popular among Muslim pilgrims who visit Medina. During the battle, Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) ordered 50 archers to stay on the hill where they were supposed to protect the Muslim army from the opposing army's attack. The Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) gave the archers strict instructions not to move. However, during the battle, the archers deserted their post thinking the battle was over and went to collect the spoils of war. At the same time, the Meccan army, led by Khalid ibn al-Walid, attacked the Muslims, which resulted in a great loss of life and injuries to the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).

The martyrs of the Battle of Uhud are also buried in a graveyard situated near the hill. A visit to this hill is sacred to Muslims not just because of its military history but also because it is a reminder of the harsh consequences of disobeying the beloved Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).

Battlefield where 1440 years ago faith and grit were tested by God. And by God's grace, the believers among ansar and muhajirin prevail and persevere.

Mount Uhud Jabal al-Rumah (Arabic: جبل الرماة) is small mountain in front of Mount Uhud. This is where the Prophet (ﷺ) had positioned archers during the Battle of Uhud with the strict instructions not to move. It was the desertion of their posts by many of the archers on thinking the battle was over that led to a reversal of fortune for the Muslims in the war. The mountain is also known as Jabal Ainain (Arabic: جبل عينين)
