Commanders of The Muslim Army


This book is about the lives of those pre-eminent and noble Companions of the Prophet who led the forces of Islam in the violent and strife-torn arenas of conflict against the Kuffar or dis believers.

These were the warriors who after a vigorous training had turned to pure gold after being trained by the supreme Commander, the mercy

to mankind, and the embodiment of goodness, the king of Al­Madinah, Muhammad Experts in the art of war were amazed and overwhelmed when they studied their exploits of bravery and valour.

 They struck terror in the hearts of the enemy and the stronghold sand palaces of Qaesar and Kisra trembled before their might.

They lived in austerity and simplicity, yet their style was regal. They were not cowed down by the enemy, they did not tremble before him in terror, neither could they be deterred from the pursuit of their objective.

They loved death more than life in their pursuit of the righteous and true. Their gaze was modest, their hearts burned with passionate love of Allah Almighty, their arms were powerful and their feet stood surprisingly firm and steady as they fought for what their conscience told them was moral and virtuous.

In whichever direction they turned, they conquered region after region . Under the leadership of the Prophet they performed stunning deeds of valor and daring in the battlefields.

In no time at all the stories of their great and noble exploits became the assurances of their bravery and the tales of their heroism were guarantees of their fervour and a rdour . These epic stories spread in all directions.

The battles fought during the Prophet’s time were the most excellent and exemplary in all respects. Many time the forces of Islam faced armies which were much larger.

 Sometimes the opposing forces were ten times larger than the Prophet’s army, and also had a larger number of superior arms and equipment, yet most often it was the forces of Islam which were victorious. Sociologists are amazed by the fact that the Islamic state started off as a small city state and, expanded at an average rate of two hundred square miles per day.

Ten years later at the death of the Prophet the empire of Islam was spread over an area of ten hundred thousand square miles.

When one studies the Islamic era spanning the lifetime of the Prophet from the point of view of conquest and occupation of lands, their organization, management and administration, this amazement subsides.

Every stage and step seems to have been patterned according to a well-defined, comprehensive and well thought out plan.

  • Stability of the conquered lands.
  • Education, moral and religious training of the conquered peoples.
  • The education and training of the managers and administrators in morals, intellect and skills.
  • An attempt to extend the limits of the Islamic Empire, by training military ex perts. This training was moral and intellectual.

Technical know – how was not neglected either . Under their leadership the Islamic army forged their way into new territories in all directions; these were basic, innovative and revolutionary steps that resulted in astounding explo its.

As a result within the short span of fifteen years after the passing away of the Prophet , most of the areas of the two major continents of Asia and Africa, were under the control of the Muslims.

When a student of Islamic history observes these facts, he is inevitably and deeply interested to learn about the lives of these remarkable military leaders. He would like to study their characters, their code of life and the strategies they employed.

He would like to gain enlightenment from these beacons of the past in order to illuminate such light as make the world of Islam shine in the present, and also to blaze a trail for future generations.

Human nature and the basic strategies of war normally do not change; it is for this reason that invaluable lessons can be gained even from the battles fought far back in ancient recorded history.

With this purpose in mind biographical sketches of these great generals of the early years of Islam are being presented; their incredible and extraordinary military achievements have added many a glorious and golden chapter to the history of mankind.

Doubtless those great personalities who were trained by the greatest Commander of Arab and Ajam, the Sultan of Al-Madinah, the Prophet himself, had been transformed by personal contact with his radiant personality.

Their eyes witnessed his greatness, which had become the axis of their hearts souls and very existence.

The only meaning and purpose of their lives was to achieve martyrdom in the cause of Islam.

A study of the enviable lives and characters of these great generals will inspire modern day Mujahideen, 1 soldiers and military leaders with the spirit of sacrifice and Jihad.2

The battles fought during the life of the Prophet introduced and made crystal-clear such principles of military strategy as had never been used in human history.

 The brilliance of the strategies the Prophet used as the Commander-in­ Chief in the battle of Badr cannot be or ignored even in the context of modern day wa rfa re. The very first martial tactics employed by the small Islamic State in its infancy were remarkably well organized and disciplined, for the example:

  • Before leaving for the battlefield a Deputy was appointed in AI­ Madinah.
  • The Muslim army was divided into different groups or divisions and a commander was appointed for each of these divisions.
  • Qais Al Mazni Ansari was appointed to watch over the rear section of the army.
