The Battle of Hattin (also known as "The Horns of Hattin" after a nearby hornlike geographical feature, and the figurative horns upon which the losing crusader forces were impaled) took place on Saturday, July 4, 1187, between the crusader Kingdom of Jerusalem and the forces of the Ayyubid dynasty.

Muslim armies under Saladin completely defeated the crusaders, and the results of this signifigant battle helped the Muslims to take back control of Jerusalem from the military forces of some military Western European Christians, who had invaded the Middle East from Europe roughly one hundred years before
