In the battle of Ajnadayn, a knight covered in armour and wrapped in clothes approached the Roman army,engaging in a fierce fight against nearly 30 of enemy soldiers.
Seeing the heroic fight and great expertise in warfare which crushed and defeated the enemies, Muslim army thought it was Sword of Allah, Khalid ibn Waleed (رضي الله عنه). They said:
“This is Khalid. This can be none other than Khalid ibn Waleed”
But while they saw Khalid (رضي الله عنه) fighting in different side , they were shocked. They approached and informed him of this warrior.
Khalid (رضي الله عنه)replied: “I don’t know him and am wondering same as you. This is the first time I am seeing some one fighting with this huge power and energy”
He approached the knight and enquired : “Who are you ? You fought like a great fighter”
While the knight was not answering,they repeated thier questions and finally knight responded :
“Iam not answering due to any rudeness. But Iam a women, Kawla Bint Azwar”
It was Khawla Bint Azwar,one of the prominent Muslim fighter who was specialised in martial arts,fighting with swords and spears.
Not only men, Muslim women also have many great personalities to be proud of.
