What an excellent servant of God: Khalid ibn Walid, one of the swords of Allah, unleashed against the unbelievers.
By Allah, I shall destroy the Romans and the friends of Satan with Khalid bin Al Walid.
Abu Dharr took an oath that this verse:" These two adversaries who dispute about their Lord" (xxii. 19) was revealed in connection with those who on the Day of Badr came out (of rows to fight against the non-believers and they were) Hamza, 'Ali, 'Ubaida b. Harith (from the side of the Muslims) and 'Utba and Shaiba, both of them the sons of Rabi'a and Walid b. 'Utba (from the side of the non-believers of Mecca).
