Zayd ibn al-Khattab
|This article does not cite any references or sources. (December 2011)|
In the battle against Musaylimah, Zayd ibn al-Khattab called out to the forces:
- "Men, bite with your jaw teeth, strike the enemy and press on. By God, I shall not speak to you after this until either Musaylamah is defeated or I meet God."
He then charged against the enemy and continued fighting until he was killed. His grave was purportedly located just north of modern-day Riyadh until the 18th century when it was levelled to the ground by Muhammad ibn Abd al-Wahhab, who claimed that it had become an object of idolatry.
