Khaybar is now revealing the mysteries of ancient Saudi Arabia, which have lain hidden for millennia. Its historical history has undoubtedly played a crucial role in forming the world around us.

There are several best places to visit in Khaybar - Saudi Arabia, and it is worth visiting Khaybar due to its history. Numerous stone constructions, many of which date to the Bronze Age, are a testament to the fact that permanent water sources have drawn humans to Khaybar for millennia.
Khaybar has been a significant oasis city since the first millennium B.C.E. as a stopover between Hegra (Madain Saleh) and Yathrib due to its placement along the western caravan trade line between Yemen and Madinah. However, two significant conquests in the Arabian Peninsula's history also contributed to its historical significance.
The first reference to Khaybar is found on the stela of Harran, which is now in Turkey, where six oases that Nabonidus, the last king of Babylon, conquered in 552 BC are named. Along with other extant ancient oases, Tayma, Dedan, Yathrib (modern-day Madinah), Fadak, and Yadi, Khaybar appears under the name Hibra.
But Khaybar gained notoriety as the final Jewish stronghold overthrown by Muslim forces sent by the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) and his companion Ali in year 7 of the Hijri calendar (628 CE) at the dawn of the Islamic period. Jews formerly owned Khaybar, which is the strongest of their strongholds. It comprised seven forts of various sizes encircled by palm tree plantations.
The eviction of Jews from their homes caused great pain to Jewish leaders. Salam ibn Abu al Haqiq, Kinanah ibn Abu al Haqiq, and Huyayy ibn Akhtab were the leaders who made Khaybar their home. The influence of these three men was sufficient to incite the Khaybar Jews to engage in the Battle of Khaybar in retribution for the Muslims. They had deep-seated animosity for one another and an intense yearning to return to their Madinah homes.
The Jews of Khaybar, commanded by the leaders of Banu Al-Nadir, made their first move against the Muslims at the Battle of Khaybar when they significantly contributed to inciting Quraish and the desert Arabs against them and spent their own money to do so. Then they successfully convinced Banu Qurayzah to turn on the Muslims and aid their adversaries.
The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) believed it was crucial to deal with the situation in Khaybar, which had turned into a significant source of danger for the Muslims after Allah had helped the Muslims protect Madinah and vanquish the tribes.
The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) wrote them a letter inviting them to Islam, but the Jews did not accept his invitation. They did not apologize for stirring up the enemies of the Muslims, according to Ibn Ishaq's account, which is supported by an Isnad" (the chain of officials testifying to the historical accuracy of a specific Hadith). Therefore, the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) decided to deal with Salam ibn Abd al Haqiq and the other leaders who had contributed to the instigation against him.
