The Holy Prophet(PBUH) wanted to intercept the caravan of
Abu Sufiyan that ultimately lead to battle of Badr.
Was it legal in islam at that time to take the belongings of a caravan or the Prophet knew that he is going for Badr and not for Abu Sufyan.
Pl explain.


Al-jawab billahi at-taufeeq (the answer with Allah's guidance)

If one looks at Islamic history one would find that the Kuffaar of Makkah had forcefully taken away the properties and assets of the Muslims. This is why Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) immediately exhorted the Muslims to rush out and waylay the caravan of Abu Sufiyan to make up for their property and wealth they were forced to give up in Makkah.

And Only Allah Ta'ala Knows Best.
