Abu Ishaaq Al-Fazari said to Abdullah bin Mubarak, “O Abu Abdulrahman, there was a man from our companions who had gathered more knowledge than you and I, and when he was dying, I told him, ‘Say: La Ilaha Ila Allah’. He said, ‘I can’t say it’. I asked him twice, and he could not say it. He remained like this until he died.”
