The battle of Taif took place in 630 CE, as the Muslims besieged the city of Taif after their victory in the Battle of Hunayn and Autas. However, the city did not succumb to the siege. One of their chieftains, Urwah ibn Masud, was absent in Yemen during that siege.

Although the siege was unsuccessful, the inhabitants of Taif, the Banu Thaqif, sent a delegation to Mecca shortly after the siege; this resulted in them adopting Islam.
