The Byzantine-Persian wars in the seventh century received substantial coverage from the early Muslims in Makkah together with their Pagan counterparts. The interest in such far-off conflict when the Muslims were under persecution reflected their empathy with those closer to them in faith, as well as the importance of the location this was taken place in, particularly Jerusalem. This paper engages with both the historical narrative as well as Muslim
coverage of events particularly within exegetical works, both classical and modern. The paper also illustrates how early Muslims capitalised on knowledge of the political situation in later conquering these lands and bringing it within the Islamic realm as well as vindicating the authenticity of the Quran.
