Khalid bin Waleed, also known as the Sword of Allah, was one of the greatest generals in history, both Islamic and otherwise. He was undefeated in battle, his courage was unparalleled, his strategic mind was stunning, and his humility and obedience to his ruler were astonishing. He contributed hugely in the initial wave of military successes of the Muslims that gave them the momentum to spread throughout the world. Apart from his competence and talent in the battlefield, he was a pious Muslim with strong morals and compassion that set him apart from many of the world’s famous military leaders. He was, in short, a Muslim hero, and his life gives inspiration to us all.
