Ibn Ishaq 764- After amassing a powerful army, Muhammad sent his forces to take the peacefulfarming community of Khaybar by surprise. In the aftermath, he was dissatisfied with the amountof plunder and felt that the town’s treasurer, Kinana, might be holding out on him. He had the manbrought to him:
