They shouted (in surprise): Muhammad has come along with his force! The Messenger of Allah ﷺ said: Khaibar shall face destruction. Behold! when we descend in the city-square of a people, it is a bad day for those who have been warned (but have not taken heed). Allah, the Glorious and Majestic, inflicted defeat upon them.
