Imam Malik said that someone informed him: “Ibn ʻUmar would imitate the Messenger of Allah and follow his traces and lifestyle and be very keen in this, to the point that we feared for his sanity because of his keenness in this.”

One of the teachers of Imam Malik = Imam Nafiʻ reported that ʻAbdullahi the on of ʻUmar {Allah be pleased with him} used to follow the traces of the Messenger of Allah {Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon him} in every place he prayed. This was to the point that there was a tree that the Prophet would sit under, and Ibn ʻUmar would frequent this tree and water its trunk so that it would not weaken.
