Ransoming with all the gold and silver on the earth..

‘Abdullah Ibn ‘Abbas (رضي الله عنه) said:

I came close to ‘Umar (رضي الله عنه) when he had been stabbed and said, “Receive the glad tidings of Paradise, O Amirul Muminin. You became Muslim when the people were still dsibelievers, and you strove in Jihad with the Messenger (صلى الله عليه وسلم) of Allah when the people opposed him, and the Messenger (صلى الله عليه وسلم) of Allah died when he was pleased with you, and no two people disputed concerning your caliphate and you have been killed as a martyr.” He said,” Say it again.” So I said it again and he said:

“By Allah, besides Whom there is no other God, if I had in my possession all the gold and silver on earth, I would have paid it to ransom myself from terror of the Day of Judgement.”

[Al I’tiqaad by Imam Bayhaqi]
