Sayyiduna Zunnun Misri (Alayhir Rahmah) has reported that once he saw a young man in Mina who was quietly sitting at a side while other people were busy performing their sacrifices (of animals). The young man cried out suddenly,
O my Beloved Allah! Your servants are busy offering their sacrifices. I wish to sacrifice myself in Your court. O my Creator! Accept my sacrifice.
Saying this, he ran his finger across his throat and fell down. Sayyiduna Zunnun Misri (Alayhir Rahmah) stated,
I hurriedly approached him and was astonished to see that he had passed away.
