Khawlah (RA) was one of the great poetesses of Makkah who early accepted Islam. She was the daughter of one of the chiefs of Bani Asad tribe, and her family entered Islam in its early days. The name of her father was Tariq Bin Aws, however, Al-Azwar was his nickname. Her brother, Dirar, was also the poet of his tribe, who was well known for his intelligence. He loves Khawalah (RA) so much and his love for his sister and confidence in her competences were fabulous.

In fact, the brother and sister were so attached to each other that they were compatible in every walk of life. He trained her sister Khawalah (RA) on all arts of swordsmanship thus she became a perfect knight likewise her brother. The most important for Khawalah (RA) was that she grasped the noble art of poetry which is read still read by the people of Arab. Several pilgrims who visit Makkah through hajj and umrah experts must visit the library in order to read her poetry.

Her name remained greatly unknown but as the battle of Ajnadin fought, her brother lost his spear, fell from his horse, and was taken, prisoner. Thus, she put on a male knight's dress, took her arms and rode her stallion through the Roman ranks. She used her sword skillfully against whoever tried to stop her in such a way that the Muslim soldiers, and their leader Khalid, watched her with prodigious appreciation that they all considered her a strong man.

Rafe' Bin Umayrah Al-Ta'if was one of the Muslim fighters, described how that knight dispersed the enemy positions, vanishing in their focus. She diverged and repeated the deed fearlessly, many times. All the Muslim soldiers were astonished about her (disguised) and praying for her (disguised) safety. Rafe' and other soldiers thought her (disguised) Khalid, who won great fame for his bravery and genius military plans. But when Khalid (RA) appeared with a number of knights, so Rafe' asked the leader who that knight had been with no regard for his safety.

Khalid (RA) replied that he also didn't know the man, though he significantly well-regarded his courage. They were fascinated to see a number of Roman knights chasing him and then she (disguised) would turn around and kill the nearest before resuming his attacks.
Finally, the Roman lost the battle and fled, leaving many dead and wounded soldiers on the battlefield. Khalid looked for the knight but she (disguised) was covered in blood. He admired her (disguised) bravery and requested to remove the veil. But the knight did not any reply but tried to break away. However, soldiers wouldn't let her do that and all asked him to reveal identity. No doubt her brave fighting would be remembered forever as it is remembered by the UK pilgrims at the spot when they go to Arab land for performing the religious duty through Five Star Umrah Deals from UK after proceeding.

When the knight was forced by them to reveal the secret, she replied in a feminine voice that she could not reply as she was shy. She said that she was only a woman whose heart was burning. At that Khalid Bin Waleed (RA) insisted her to tell about herself. She said that she was Khawlah Bin Al-Azwar and was compelled to release her brother Darar (RA). So, Khalid Bin Waleed (RA) ordered his army to chase the fleeing Roman soldiers under the Khawlah leading. They attacked and looked in all directions in order to find her brother but they could not find him.

Consequently, Khawlah (RA) became a legend during her life until present. She is an example to all the Muslims both men and women alike that one should fight for what they believe in, and never accept defeat.
