Abstract

At the time when Islam came into hold and power, the people around world were totally unaware from the idea of concerned war guidelines. The West got to be distinctly aware of this idea surprisingly in the seventeenth century. Preceding this all types of barbarity and brutality were executed in war. Last Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), first time in human history, set rules for the enemy warriors, the supporter of warriors, the land and cattle of battlefield, and even those who were captured fighting got rights and were treated like human. The Islamic rule was majorly extended in the time of second Caliph ʻUmar ibn al-Khaṭṭāb, and he was the one who picked Sa’d ibn Abī Waqqās for the campaign of Persia. Sa’d ibn Abī Waqqās used the best of his brain and war policies that titled him as the Conqueror of Persia. His war policies politically were so successful that weakened the Yazd Gard, the Persian king, and all his followers to such a level, with their utmost efforts, they could not gain the hold of Persia back.
