Hazart Khalid bin Walid said to his wife I fought in so many battles seeking martyrdom that there is no place in my body but have a stabbing scar by a spear, a sword or a dagger, and yet here I am, dying on my bed like an old camel dies. May the eyes of the cowards never sleep? Death


Military 1. Khalid was the architect of most of the early Muslim military doctrines; he was pioneer of almost every major tactic that Muslims used during Early Islamic conquest. Political Khalid also remained military Governor of Iraq from 632–633 and Governor of Chalcis, the most strategic cantonment in Northern Syria. Though he was never active politically but his fame alarmed Umar , who then recalled him from army. 1. once Umar was sitting with his companions, someone recalled Khalid, Umar reportedly said: "By God, he was Islam's shield against the enemies, his heart was pure from every animosity". Legacy


Religious standing Khalid ibn Walid was a Sahabi , a fact which makes him a very respectable figure among the Sunni Muslims. Shia Muslims, however have a negative view of Khalid. According to Shia Muslims, Khalid helped Abu Bakr in suppressing the supporters of their Imam Ali. Who, according to them, was appointed by Prophet Muhammad as his political successor. Legacy
