Sa'id bin Khalids RA Touching Words

Ruwaym bin ‘Amir narrates from Wâqis bin Sayf ash-Shabkâri:

I was with the army which Aboo Bakr رضي الله عنه had sent to Aylah and Palestine under the leadership of ‘Amr bin al-Aas رضي الله عنه , with Sa’id bin Khâlid bin Sâ’id رضي الله عنه as the flag bearer. I saw him waving the flag and reciting this poem:

We are marching with a small army from the best nation,
Against Disbelievers, Syria is our destination.

They worship the Cross, an evil people are they,

I will cut them to the ground, with my sword I will slay,

I will pierce them thoroughly with my spear,

On the battle-field there is nothing I fear

In this war Paradise is my aspiration

And that with the pious be my resurrection
