 Number seven we have said Bin  Abi Waqas

The territories alkaka in amer al tamimi comes in at number three 

this man was from the Banu Tamim and he and his tribe converted to islam around the time of anathem case he's known as a very successful military commander who took part in two important victories in early muslim conquests those were the battle of yarmouk against the byzantine empire and also the battle of al-qaeda against the Sasanian empire later the caliph abu bakr praised him as an equal to eleven thousand men so in return the caliph predecessor khalif umar only sent him a handful of bodyguards as reinforcements to al qaeda as the first wave of reinforcement making him one of the most efficient military figures of that time 

 Number two we have umar ibn al-khattab 

Umar was one of the most powerful influential Muslim khalifs in history he was a senior companion of the Islamic prophet Muhammad(PBUH) now what's really important to know is that during his reign almost the entire sassanid persian empire were annexed to the rashidun caliphate according to one of the estimates more than 4050 cities were captured during these military conquests so prior to his death in the year 644 umar had ceased all of his military expeditions and this was to consolidate his role in recently conquered roman Egypt and the newly conquered sassanid empire that happened between the years 642-644 and at the time of his passing away in November 644 his rule extended from the present-day Libya in the west to the indus river in the east as well as the auxes river in the north

to the prophet Muhammad(PBUH)as an imam by Shia Muslims Sunnis do not believe that though with the exception of the battle of Tabuk ali took part in all of the battles and expeditions fought for Islam as well as being the standard bearer in those battles ali he led military troops and warriors on raids into enemy lands and ALI had played a major role in the battle of the hood as well as many other battles this is why he is number one
