⚔️ Victory to Ali in the Battle of Nahrawan

16 August

The Battle of Nahrawan was fought between the army of Caliph Ali and the rebel group called Kharijites in July 658 CE. They were a group of pious allies of Ali during the First Muslim Civil War. They separated from him following the Battle of Siffin when Ali agreed to settle the dispute with Mu’awiya, governor of Syria, through negotiations, a move labeled by the group as against the Qur’an. After failed attempts to regain their loyalty and because of their rebellious and murderous activities, Ali confronted the Kharijites near their headquarters by the Nahrawan Canal, near modern-day Baghdad. Of the 4,000 rebels, some 1,200 were won over with promise of amnesty while majority of the remaining 2,800 were killed in the ensuing battle.
