The bravery of Khalid bin Waleed (ra)

Hadhrat Aws bin Haaritha narrates, “There was none who hated
the (Muslim) Arabs more than Hurmuz. After we had finished fighting Musaylama
and his people, we marched towards Basrah. We clashed with Hurmuz with an
extremely large army at a place called Kaadhima. Khaalid  stepped
forward and challenged Hurmuz to a duel. Hurmuz accepted the challenge and
Khaalid killed him. When Hadhrat Khaalid  wrote to Hadhrat Abu
Bakr about this , Hadhrat Abu Bakr  awarded Hurmuz’s
belongings t o Hadhrat Khaalid bin Waleed . Hurmuz’s crown was
valued at a hundred thousand Dirhams because the Persians always gave their
leaders crowns valued at a hundred thousand Dirhams.”
