On the authority of Yahya ibn Awn who said myself and Sahnoon visited ibn Qassar whilst he was sick.Sahnoon said to him, ”Why are you worried and anxious?
Ibn Qasaar replied, ”Death and going to my Lord.”
So Sahnoon said to him:
“Do you not believe in the messengers, the resurrection, the taking of accounts, paradise and the hellfire?
And do you not believe that the most virtuous after the Prophet ﷺ in this nation is Abu Bakr, then Umar رضي الله عنهما. And that the Qur’an is the words of Allah, not created?
And do you not believe that Allah will be seen on the day of judgment and that he rose above His throne?
And do you not believe that reviling the ruler, even if they oppress is impermissible?
Ibn Qasaar replied:
“Yes by Allah, I do.”
Sahnoon then said,
“Die if you wish, die if you wish. ”(Meaning if one dies in this condition with the correct creed and methodology then we hope good for him).
