Ikrimah Ibn Amr
|Known for||Encouraging retreating Muslims to continue fighting in the Battle of Yarmouk|
At the Battle of Badr, Ikrimah was the one to run to his father when the latter was being attacked by an Ansar warrior, Mu'adh ibn 'Amr. Ikrimah struck Mu'adh's shoulder, which resulted in the loss of his arm.:304 Ikrimah also fought at the battle of Uhud, accompanied by his wife Umm Hakim.:371
Having been a friend of Khalid ibn Al-Walid from his childhood, Ikrimah had tried to dissuade the latter from accepting Islam. When Abu Sufyan heard of Khalid's intentions, he started to beat him; it was Ikrimah who controlled Abu Sufyan.
He was killed at the Battle of Yarmouk in August 634, along with his uncles Salama ibn Hisham:87, 100-101 and Ayyash ibn Abi Rabiah. All three were buried together after the battle.
