According to the traditional Islamic sources, the Treaty of Hudaybiyyah (صلح الحديبية) (also called Sulah-e-Hudaibiya in Persian) was a ten-year truce between Prophet Muhammad and the Pagan Meccans in March 628, who at the time were in control of the Ka'aba.

It was concluded when Muhammad and 1,400 Muslims attempted to enter Mecca in order to make a lesser pilgrimage (umrah) and were met outside the city.

Two years later, Muhammad would return with 10,000 men and conquer Mecca.
