A Poem By Khalid Ibn Waleed

Assalamu 'Alaykum Wa Rahmatullah...

I was reading the excellent book Futuh Ush-Sham and I came across this beautiful short poem that Khalid Ibn Waleed Rahimahullah recited whilst going to rescue Dirar Radiyallahu 'Anh

اليوم فاز فيه من صدق*** لا ارهب الموت إذا الموت طرق
لأروين الرمح من ذوي الحدق *** لأهتكن البيض هتكا والدرق

عسى أرى غدا مقام من صدق *** في جنة الخلد وألقى من سبق

Today the truthful one will attain his goal
He is not afraid when death snatches his soul,
My spear’s thirst quench will I
With blood flowing from the eye
I will pierce both shield and helmet
And get that which yesterday the predecessors did get
