‘A’ishah رضي الله عنها said: “I never saw anyone holding tighter to the original affair than Ibn ‘Umar. رضي الله عنه”

[ أن ] عبيد بن جريج قال لعبد بن عمر رضي الله عنهما : رأيتك تصنع أربعا لم أر أحدا من أصحابك يصنعها ، قال : ما هي يا ابن جريج ؟ قال : رأيتك لا تمس من الأركان إلا اليمانيين ، ورأيتك تلبس النعال السبتية ، ورأيتك تصبغ بالصفرة ، ورأيتك إذا كنت بمكة ، أهل الناس إذا رأوا الهلال ، ولم تهل أنت حتى كان يوم التروية . فقال له عبد الله بن عمر : أما الأركان : فإني لم أر رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم يمس إلا اليمانيين ، وأما النعال السبتية : فإني رأيت رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم يلبس النعال التي ليس فيها شعر ويتوضأ فيها ، فأنا أحب أن ألبسها ، وأما الصفرة : فإني رأيت رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم يصبغ بها ، فأنا أحب أن أصبغ بها ، وأما الإهلال : فإني لم أر رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم يهل حتى تنبعث به راحلته

‘Ubaid bin Juraij said to ‘Abdullah Ibn ‘Umar رضي الله عنه , “I see you doing four things which are not done by your friends (companions).” Ibn ‘Umar said, “What are they, O Ibn Juraij?” He said, “I see that you do not touch except the two Yemenite corners of the Ka’ba (while performing the Tawaf): and I see you wearing the Sabtiyya shoes; and I see you dyeing (your hair) with Sufra; and I see that when you are in Mecca, the people assume the state of Ihram on seeing the crescent (on the first day of Dhul-Hijja) while you do not assume the state of Ihram till the Day of Tarwiya (8th Dhul Hijja).” ‘Abdullah bin ‘Umar said to him, “As for the corners of the Ka’ba, I have not seen Allah’s Apostle  صلى الله عليه وسلم touching except the two Yemenite corners, As for the Sabtiyya shoes, I saw Allah’s Apostle  صلى الله عليه وسلم wearing leather shoes that had no hair, and he used to perform the ablution while wearing them. Therefore, I like to wear such shoes. As regards dyeing with Sufra, I saw Allah’s Apostle  صلى الله عليه وسلم dyeing his hair with it, so I like to dye (my hair) with it. As regards the crescent (of Dhul-Hijja), I have not seen Allah’s Apostle  صلى الله عليه وسلم assuming the state of Ihram till his she-camel set out (on the 8th of Dhul-Hijja).”
