A story about him that sticks in my mind the most is about how he chose his wife- he listen to his father's advice with regards to strong legs (the wife eventually having to escape hence the need for strong legs to get her away).

The second is about when his enemy (who was his ally when they were young) suffered a mutiny and was captured by his own forces and handed over Genghis Khan. What he did was... anyway, don't want to spoil the story for you...:statisfie

Genghis Khan was a kafir, and a tyrant.

Yes. And Khan was his title as ruler, not family name like used by Muslims in South Asia nowadays.

Scimi, he was!

StrivingforDeen, okay then.... he duly executed the traitors who gave up their leader in the hope of gaining favour of Genghis. it was an example for his own troops as well. His captured enemy then requested for an honourable death. Duly granted after Genghis' request for him to join his ranks was rejected.
