O men of Islam ! The time has come for steadfastness. Weakness and cowardice lead to disgrace; and he who is steadfast is more deserving of Allah's help. He who stands bravely before the blade of the sword will be honored, and his labors rewarded, when he goes before Allah. Lo ! Allah loves the steadfast.
Do you not see the wealth of the land of the Persians ? Do you not remember the poverty of the land of the Arabs ? Do you not see how the crops in this land cover the earth ? If the holy war were not enjoined by Allah, we should still come and conquer this rich land and exchange the hunger of our deserts for the abundant eating which is now ours.
And here I am, dying in my bed, like cattle die. May the eyes of cowards never sleep.
These Romans were the bravest that I had ever met.
How few are the Romans and how numerous are we ! 'An army's strength lies not in numbers of men but in Allah's help, and its weakness lies in being forsaken by Allah"
By Allah, if you were to appoint a small child over me, I would obey him. How could I not obey you when you are far above me in Islam and have been named the Trusted One by the Prophet?

Take her as a gift, there shall be no ransom.
But for the necessity of obeying the orders of the Caliph, I would never have accepted this command over you. You are much higher than me in Islam. I am a Companion of the Prophet, but you are one whom the Messenger of Allah had called 'the trusted one of this nation.
We shall take this route; let not your resolve be weakened. Know that the help of Allah comes according to your desire. Let not the Muslims fear anything so long as they have the help of Allah.
I see that these people know nothing about war.
Wait a while; there will come to you mounts, carrying lions in shining armor, battalions followed by battalions.
O Lord! If you give us victory, I shall see that no enemy warrior is left alive until their river runs with their blood!
I will give you three days, if the gates are not opened on these revised terms, I shall attack. And then there shall be no terms of any kind."
I am the pillar of Islam! I am the Companion of the Prophet! I am the noble warrior, Khalid bin Al Waleed!
I am the son of many chiefs. My sword is sharp and terrible. It is the mightiest of things when the pot of war boils fiercely.
