[20] The forts of Na’im, Qamus and Ash-Shiqq were some of the famous forts of Khaybar. Yaqubi says that Khaybar then had 25, 000 able-bodied warriors. (Vol. 2, p. 56, cited from Mujib Ullah Nadwi, Sahabah was Tabi’yin, Azamgarh)

[21] With the Jews straining every nerve to bring about the destruction of Muslims, as Montgomery Watt says in his book, Muhammad – Prophet and Stateman (p. 189), the action against Khaybar could not have been posponed any longer. Montgomery writes: The Jews of Khaybar, especially the leaders of the clan of an-Nadir exiled from Madina, were still incensed at Muhammad. They made lavish, though no doubt judicious, use of their wealth to induce the neighbouringward reason for attacking Khaybar.
