At the time of the Prophet (pbuh), there were many individuals considered to be skilled warriors. However, one stood out for his strategic thinking, bravery and martial prowess - the companion Khalid ibn al-Walid (ra).  Khalid ibn al-Walid was a leading member of the Quraysh elites in Mecca. He was well known for his military leadership skills and tactical acumen. He led successful campaigns against the Muslims during the early years of the nascent Medinan state (the battle of Uhud a good example of his tactical skills) and after the conquest of Mecca, he became a Muslim and joined the Muslims in expanding Islam. He led several successful military campaigns during the time of the Prophet (pbuh) and was considered one of the best military commanders of his time.  It is even reported that the Prophet (pbuh) said, "I would love to have Khalid ibn al-Walid fight on the side of the Muslims." (Bukhari)  He was known for his bravery and valor on the battlefield. He was considered one of the most fierce fighters among the companions of the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh).

He also played an important role in the Battle of Mu'tah, where he defeated the Byzantine army.  He was well known for his strategic thinking and ability to adapt to changing circumstances on the battlefield. He was skilled in the art of war and was able to outmaneuver his opponents, respected by his companions for his military prowess and bravery., held in high esteem and considered one of the best warriors of his time.  Khalid was also respected by his enemies, who feared his military skills.
