Dismissal of Khalid from command
On 22 August 634, Abu Bakr died, having made Umar, Khalid's cousin, his successor.[44] Umar's first move was to relieve Khalid from supreme command of Muslim Forces and appointing Abu Ubaidah as the new commander in chief of the Islamic army.

[53] Khalid had become a trial of disbelief(fitna) to the Muslims as they had attributed the wins of battles to the personality and figure of Khalid; Umar was reported as saying:"I did not fire khalid ibn al waleed because I am angry with him or because of betrayal of trust or responsibility but the reason was that he was becoming a "fitna" to the people and I wanted people to know that it is Allah who gives victory", this resulted in the dismissal of Khalid from supreme command and later in 638, from military services.

Khalid, gave a pledge of loyalty to the new caliph and continued service as an ordinary commander under Abu Ubaidah.Though Khalid was a part of it. He is reported to have said: "If Abu Bakr is dead and Umar is Caliph, then we hear and obey"
