Is it true that we don’t like Khaled ibn Waleed because he killed Iranians? And is it true that Shiism comes from Iran?
Khalid Ibn Waleed was initially a Kafir (disbeliever) fighting against Muslims even in the battle of Uhod. He later on announced his Islam. During the reign of Abu-Bakr he committed numbers of crimes. One of them was that he killed the head of the tribe Bani-Tameem and slept with his wife. Slaughtering and burning Iranians during the battle of Hira (2.A.H) is only one of his crimes. By the way, as Muslims our love or hatered should not be driven by any nationalistic motives.
The Shi’a entered Iran as much as Sunnis did, it did not start from Iran. The earliest Shi’a were the companions of Imam Ali who were Arabs residing in Madina and Kufa.
