Ḥunayn (Arabic: حُنَین) is a valley in northeast of Mecca, between Wadi l-Sharayi' and Wadi Yad'an.[1] This area is located 10 miles away from Mecca.[2]

After the Conquest of Mecca in 8/629, there happens a battle between the Holy Prophet (s) and pagans which is well known as the Battle of Hunayn.
