Bilat-ash-Shuhadؤ (Battle of Poitiers of Battle of Tours) is the name of a battle which took place between Muslim armies led by àbd-ar-Rahman Al-Ghafighi, the governor of Cordoba, and Christian armies led by Charles Martel, the ruler of the Frankish kingdoms, near the Pyrenees mountains, between the two cities of Tours and Poitiers in 114 A.H. lun., 732 AD. In this battle àbd-ar-Rahman was killed and the Arab Muslims retired.
Following this defeat, Muslim military advance against Christians in Spain stopped altogether, more so by internal dissent that anything else; and Muslim rule in Andalusia began to gradually wither away.
