Campaigns during the caliphate of ‘Umar ibn al-Khattab (634–644) led the Islamic forces into North Africa and Mesopotamia. ‘Umar adopted the title Amir al-Mu’minin, Commander of the Believers. The Byzantines were defeated in the Battle of al-Yarmuk (636), and the Persian Sassanids were defeated at the Battle of Nihavand (641). ‘Umar was worried about overextending his forces, and he cautioned his reckless commander, ‘Amr ibn al-As: “If my letter ordering thee to turn back from Egypt overtakes thee before entering any part of it then turn back; but if thou enter the land before the receipt of my letter, then proceed and solicit Allah’s aid”(Hitti, 1964, 160).

Accusing the Meccans of violating the treaty, the Muslim forces took Mecca in 630, at the loss of two Muslim lives.

They agreed to be instructed in the new faith and to pay a poor tax (zakat) for the institutional use of the Muslim community.
