Then, he woke with sweat pouring down his face, while he was saying: ‘La Ilaaha Illallaah (None is worthy of worship besides Allaah),’Allaahu Akbar (Allaah is the greatest),’ and remembering Allaah.  
Then, he held his leg and was tossing and kissing it in his hand, and said: “By Him Who allowed me to walk on you, I never used you to walk to something forbidden, to a sin, or to anything that displeases Allaah.”

Then, he ordered that it be washed, perfumed, and shrouded, then ordered that it be taken to the graveyard.  When he returned from his travels, after his leg had been severed and his son had died, he said: “We have suffered in this travel much fatigue.”  When he was told: “Should we give you something to drink to intoxicate you so you do not feel any pain?”   He said: “Allaah tested me to see my patience.”  
Also, we have Ahmad ibn Nasr Al-Khuzaa`i, may Allaah have mercy upon him, who was one of the greatest scholars of the pious predecessors.  He used to speak the truth, enjoin good, and forbid evil.  He was steadfast in the trial of the created nature of the Qur'aan (Khalq Al-Qur’aan) .  They took him to Saamarraa’, and he sat there chained up.

He was offered to say that the Qur’aan is created, but refused, so they struck his neck, and his head was displayed in the Eastern part of Baghdad.
