Women To The Rescue...

During the battle of Al-Yarmûk, the Muslim women came and hit the horses of the Muslims in the face with tent pegs and called out –

“O men of Islâm, do you flee from your mothers, sisters, wives, and daughters?”
“Do you wish to give us to the Christians?”

Minhâl ad-Dawsî narrates:

The women were sterner against us than the Romans were. The Muslims returned from their fight saying to each other:

وَتَوَاصَوْا بِالْحَقِّ وَتَوَاصَوْا بِالصَّبْرِ
And they advise each other with Truth and they advise each other with patience. [103:3]

They turned back and fiercely fought the Romans. Qatâmah Bin al-Aysham al Kinânî was in the lead striking the Christians sometimes with a sword or sometimes with a spear until he broke three spears. All the while he was reciting:

I will attack the dogs of Rome who are barking,
With my metals edge I will be striking,
To please the giver of hope, Allâh’s messenger
Prophet of guidance for this dîn, the best advisor.
