AbstractThe study titled " Food Provisions for the Troops and Military Campaigns and Expeditions During the Prophet's Era " attempts to elucidate the method of food provisions for Muslims troops on the one hand and the infidels troops from the other and how the provisions are distributed to their armies' during their battles against the other party by following the chronological order of the military campaigns and expeditions during the life of the prophet and the duration of the message. The study describes how the infidels provided for their troops during the battle of Badr and the provision of food by Muslims to their troops in their battles the rationing of these provisions during the battles .The study also considers the most important military expeditions in which food provisions were documented starting with the Asheera campaign and ending with the campaign of Tabook which was the last expedition led by the prophet (God's blessing and peace be upon him) besides the campaigns led by his followers and the details of food provisions that were distributed among the Muslims during the campaigns. The study was concluded with a description of what food was allowed to be consumed by the troops in enemy territories according to strict disciplines and the prohibition of slaughtering animals in the routes of campaigns for food during the campaigns led by the prophet (God's blessing and peace be upon him) unless otherwise allowed because he considered it plundering and looting. Finally, the study discuses the failure in the Taiff siege as the inhabitants stocked the city with food that could have sustained them for years after taking refugee behind the walls of the city.
