HARB AL-FIDJAR

Encyclopaedia of Ismailism by Mumtaz Ali Tajddin

The word harb is derived from h-r-b means to fight, and harb al-fijar means a war of transgression. The Prophet took part in the battle at the age of twenty, between the Qoraish and the Qais, which goes under the name of harb al-fijar, so called because it was fought in the sacred months when warfare was forbidden. But his part in it was not that of actual fighting, but only of handing over arrows to his uncles.
