Suriya is an Arabic word which literally means ‘a detachment or a group of soldiers’. As the Prophet Muhammad did not participate in suraya, he would give specific instructions how to conduct a particular suriya. The number of suraya was about thirty-five (Tabari 2003: 115–17). A military expedition which the Prophet Muhammad led himself was called a ghazwa (pl. ghazwat). The total number of ghazwat was about twenty-seven (Bukhari 2008: 38, 47). Some Muslim scholars, however, do not distinguish between suriya and ghazwa (Bukhari 2008: 489) and therefore provide a different number of ghazwat.

They would use children as human shields by holding them out of the walls of the fort so the enemy could stop shooting them with arrows (Shaybani 1966: 103; Hamidullah 1968: 202). Muslim fighters asked the Prophet Muhammad about this, who advised them to aim at the combatants only (Mawardi 2005: 65).
