Ibn Hishaam (a scholar) said: “The Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, reached Badr and set up his camp there. Al-Hubaab ibn Al-Munthir (a Companion) asked, “This position that you have chosen, is it from Allah, so that it is not acceptable that we should move from it or is it an opinion, a strategy of war?” The Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, said: “Rather, it is an opinion, a strategy of war.” He said: “O Messenger of Allah, this is not a good position. We should move the people to the closest water source to the enemy  and stay there. Then, we will empty all of the wells, build a reservoir and fill it  with water. Then we will start the war, and we will have water to drink and they  will have none.”

The Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, said: “You have said  the [right] opinion.” The Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, then  stood up and those with him, and they traveled until they reached the closest water to the enemy, and they settled there. He, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, then  ordered for the wells to be emptied, and they built a reservoir over the wells and it was filled with water.”
