Muslims migrated to Medina had to leave their lives and all their capital. Those who were known as the rich in Mecca began their new life in Medina at the peak of their hardship. Some of the orientalists believe that in this situation, the poor migrants started to plunder the merchants of Quraysh in order to create jobs and make money. Considering the economic conditions of Medina and the Quraysh trade with its confederates  like  Ows and Khazraj and the tribes around Medina, it should be said that not only could not bring about economic strength and earn money and jobs for Muslims, but could challenge the emerging economies in severe conditions  by  plundering the caravans and insecurity in the routes. The Jews, whose social and economic situations were in danger, could not be disinterest to these actions. Therefore, such a goal is not only seems reasonable evidence, but also has conflicts with the economic interests of Muslims.
Keywords: Orientalists, commercial caravan, Medina economy, plundering, Ghazva, Saria.
