Ubay ibn Khalaf

Ubay ibn Khalaf (Arabic: أبي بن خلف‎) was a non-Muslim who was a contemporary and an enemy of Muhammad. He was a brother of Umayyah ibn Khalaf.


He paid his ransom after Badr, but was killed by Muhammad himself with a spear in the Battle of Uhud (625 CE). Verse [Quran 8:17] was revealed in this occasion.[1]
