Narrated Umayyah b. Khalid:

When Khalid al-Qasri was made ruler (of Hijaz and Kufah), he doubled the measure of sa'. The sa' then measured sixteen rotls. Abu Dawud said: Muhammad b. Muhammad b. Khattab was slain by Negroes in confinement. He said while signing with his hand: "in this way". Abu Dawud extended his hand and turned his palms towards earth and said: I saw him in the dream and asked him: How did Allah deal with you ? He replied: He admitted to Paradise. I said: Your detention did not harm you.

حَدَّثَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ خَلاَّدٍ أَبُو عُمَرَ، حَدَّثَنَا مُسَدَّدٌ، عَنْ أُمَيَّةَ بْنِ خَالِدٍ، قَالَ ‏:‏ لَمَّا وُلِّيَ خَالِدٌ الْقَسْرِيُّ أَضْعَفَ الصَّاعَ فَصَارَ الصَّاعُ سِتَّةَ عَشَرَ رَطْلاً ‏.‏ قَالَ أَبُو دَاوُدَ ‏:‏ مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ خَلاَّدٍ قَتَلَهُ الزِّنْجُ صَبْرًا، فَقَالَ بِيَدِهِ هَكَذَا وَمَدَّ أَبُو دَاوُدَ يَدَهُ وَجَعَلَ بُطُونَ كَفَّيْهِ إِلَى الأَرْضِ، قَالَ ‏:‏ وَرَأَيْتُهُ فِي النَّوْمِ فَقُلْتُ ‏:‏ مَا فَعَلَ اللَّهُ بِكَ قَالَ ‏:‏ أَدْخَلَنِي الْجَنَّةَ ‏.‏ فَقُلْتُ ‏:‏ فَلَمْ يَضُرَّكَ الْوَقْفُ ‏.‏
