Allah Ki Talwar | Khalid bin waleed Episode 6 | Islamic stories in Urdu |
Khalid ibn al-Walid was a born soldier and it was little wonder then that he turned out to be a great military leader. He was a Meccan from the Quraysh tribe from which Prophet Muhammed (pbuh) also came. The Quraysh was the powerful tribe that controlled Mecca and the Ka’aba, the first house of prayer built on earth at the behest of Allah (God) Al-Mighty, by the Patriarch, Prophet Abraham (peace be upon him — (pbuh).

Khalid ibn al-Walid did not believe it, as did most of the Meccans then, when Prophet Muhammed (pbuh) asserted to the people of Mecca that “He was the Prophet and Messenger of God”. Khalid, who already enjoyed fame as a skilled and fearless fighter among his Quraysh clan, understandably, lined himself against the Prophet. He was, sure, on the opposite side fighting against Prophet Muhammed (pbuh) at the Battle of Uhud (625 A.D.), which the Prophet’s side lost as a result of a last-minute stratagem devised by Khalid ibn al-Walid himself.

However, Khalid ibn al-Walid would soon see the ‘light’ and believe in the truth of the Prophet Muhammed’s divine Message and Mission — which called for “the worship of ONE God (Allah)” and the acceptance of the fact that “Muhammed (pbuh) was God’s Prophet and Messenger”. So much so, soon after the historic ten-year peace Treaty of Hudaybiyyah (628 A. D.) signed between Prophet Muhammed (pbuh) on behalf of his followers and the pagans of Mecca, Khalid ibn al-Walid in 627 A.D., accepted Islam and became a Muslim and a staunch defender of the Muslim umma (community) and ever remained one of the great shahabas (companions) of the Prophet Muhammed pbuh).

He would become an ardent defender of Islam and, after the demise of Prophet Muhammed in 632 A.D., he was ever up-front participating in expeditions and military campaigns, helping deal with conflicts within the umma – and also playing a front-rank role in the expansion of what would become the Caliphate of Islam. In fact, Khalid ibn Walid led the forays against the first battle that pitted the Muslims against the Romans – the Battle of Mutah. It is said that in the intense battle that ensued, he broke nine swords. Upon hearing that, Prophet Muhammed (pbuh) conferred upon him the title of “The Sword of Allah” – (Saif’ullah) — title by which history remembers him till to-day.

Khalid ibn al-Walid would serve the umma faithfully and, after Caliph Abu Bakar’s death, he also served Caliph Umar al-Khattab. As a matter of fact, it would be under the leadership of Khalid ibn al-Walled that the whole of Arabia would be united under a single political entity – the Islamic Caliphate. Khalid ibn al-Walled, who was a great military strategist and skillful Commander, would successfully lead the campaigns against the Romans in Syria as well as the Sassanid Arab kingdom of Al–Harrah and later, in 636 A.D., defeated the Sassanid Persian forces and inflicted on the Byzantine army a decisive defeat at the Battle of Yarmulke which led to the conquest of Syria and Palestine..

“I have not dismissed Khalid because of my anger or because of any dishonesty on his part, but because people glorified him and were misled. I feared that people would rely on him. I want them to know that it is Allah who does all things; and there should be no mischief in the land.”

Khalid ibn al-Waleed’s name is a household name in the Middle East and he was more than a military man. He was an astute army leader and strategist and participated in over fifty military campaigns and never lost one. He left his imprint on the rapid rise of the Islamic Caliphate after the death of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). Many of his observations about life and war have passed into history and are often repeated by folks in the Middle Eastern countries. Here, below, are a few of his memorable reflections.

Khalid ibn al-Walled, the commander’s advice to his soldiers:
“Do not say that! How few are the Romans and how numerous are we! An army’s strength lies not in the numbers of men but in Allah’s help, and its weakness lies in being forsaken by Allah.”
