After the victory of Khyber, Muhammad (PBUH) sent letters to Sultan of Byzantine – King of Iran, Nagus – the King of Abyssinia and the Emperor of Egypt. Muhammad (PBUH)’s emissary was killed by Harith bin Abi Shamir.

To take retribution, Battle of Mutah was fought in 629 CE, near the village of Mutah, east of the Jordan River and Karak, between an army of the Rashidun Caliphate and an army of the Byzantine Empire.

In Muslim history, the battle is usually described as the Muslims’ attempt to take retribution against a Ghassanid chief for taking the life of an emissary; it ended in a draw and the safe retreat of both sides.
