Muhammed Yusuf Hawwash (who was executed with Sayyid Qutb) had an amazing understand of Islam. He stayed in prison for ten years before they executed him. He was imprisoned from 1954 to 1964, and he was executed in 1966.
They had released him for health reasons, and then they brought him back. Jabir Rizk (journalist) told me that whenever the torture becomes too much for him, this man would look to the sky and say:
“All of this is nothing when it comes to your love… all of this is nothing when it comes to your love”, meaning that all of this torture is nothing when it is for the love of Allah.
