Khalid bin Waleed (Allah may be pleased with him) died in 21 A.H (641-2 A.D.) at Medina. He embraced Islam in 8 A.H. He served Islam throughout his life. The Prophet Muhammad (Allah's blessings and peace be upon him) had conferred on him the title of Saif-Ullah (Sword of Allah) on account of his fighting numerous wars for the cause of Islam by his genius. By Allah's grace, he won all of them without losing even a single war. He served Islam in the times of the Prophet, Caliph Abu Baker (Allah may pleased with him) and Caliph Umar (Allah may be pleased with him).
He defeated Tulaihah. He won the battle of Hirah. He made conquests of Anbar, Ain-al-Tamr, Syria, Fihl, Hims, Yarmak, etc. Caliph Umar (Allah may be pleased with him) had deposed him, as he had observed that the people grew more and more attached to him so that his admirers might realize that every thing is in the power of Allah alone. Although he won so many battles and received numerous wounds which were more than 104, on his body in wars, yet he was not satisfied with his death at bed. He lamented that he was not destined to secure the rank of Shaheed in the cause of Islam.
