Al-jawab billahi at-taufeeq (the answer with Allah’s guidance)

If one looks at Islamic history one would find that the Kuffaar of Makkah had forcefully taken away the properties and assets of the Muslims. This is why Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) immediately exhorted the Muslims to rush out and waylay the caravan of Abu Sufiyan to make up for their property and wealth they were forced to give up in Makkah.

And Only Allah Ta’ala Knows Best.
