‘Uthman b. Abi Sulaiman reported that the Apostle of Allah (Sall Allah-o-alaihe wa sallam) despatched Khalid b. Walid toward Ukaidir of Dumma, who was arrested. They (the people of Dumma) brought Ukaidir to him. He (Khalid) protected him from murder and entered into a truce with him on the payment of jizya.
