The Sword Of Allah, Khalid ibn al-Walid (Part 1)

Khalid was a member of the aristocracy in the Arabian trading city of Mecca.

Less than two years later Khalid was the highest ranking commander in the Muslim army, where his name alone spread fear through the Roman and Persian army.

Tune in to hear the story of the man responsible for the early expansion of Islam - Khalid ibn al-Walid, The Sword Of Allah (Sayfullah).
