A Biographical Study of one of the Greatest Military Generals in History
Book Description :
Khalid bin Al-Waleed, May Allah be pleased with him, was a dynamic military leader and one of the first heroes of Islam. Having made a dramatic conversion to the Muslim faith, he was at the forefront of the campaign to crush the Arab rebellion against Islam, and went on to conquer both Western Iraq and Syria from the Persians and Romans. Akram gives a detailed account of Khalid bin Al-Waleed's childhood and its historical background, the conquest of Makkah, the Siege of Taif and batlles of Hunein and Uhud.
Al-Waleed's military campaigns after the demise of the Beloved Prophet Muhammed, May Allah bless him and grant him peace, from the campaign of Apostasy to the fall of the Roman and Persian empires are then examined and illustrated in comprehensive detail.
