Narrater: (Salim bin Abdullah bin Umar) Hadidth No: (724)

Abdul-Malik bin Marwan wrote to Al-Hajjaj that he should follow Abdullah bin Umar in all the ceremonies of Hajj. So when it was the Day of Arafat (9th of Dhul-Hajja), and after the sun has deviated or has declined from the middle of the sky, I and Ibn Umar came and he shouted near the cotton (cloth) tent of Al-Hajjaj, ''Where is he?'' Al-Hajjaj came out. Ibn Umar said, ''Let us proceed (to Arafat).'' Al-Hajjaj asked, ''Just now?'' Ibn Umar replied, ''Yes.'' Al-Hajjaj said, ''Wait for me till I pour water on me (i.e. take a bath).'' So, Ibn Umar dismounted (and waited) till Al-Hajjaj came out. He was walking between me and my father. I informed Al-Hajjaj, ''If you want to follow the Sunna today, then you should shorten the sermon and then hurry up for the stay (at Arafat).'' Ibn Umar said, ''He (Salim) has spoken the truth.''
