Ibn Abī Mulaykah narrated that ‘Urwah Ibn Az-Zubayr (rahimahullāh) said to Ibn ‘Abbās (radiyallāhu ‘anhumā): “Have you led the people astray?” He responded: “And how is that O ‘Urwah?” He said: “You command the people with ‘Umrah in these ten days [of Dhul-Hijjah] while there is no ‘Umrah to be performed in them!” So Ibn ‘Abbās said: “Should you not ask your mother regarding it?” So ‘Urwah said: “But Abu Bakr and ‘Umar didn’t do it?” So Ibn ‘Abbās (radiyallāhu anhumā) responded: “This is what has ruined you, by Allāh! I do not see except that He will punish you. Verily! I narrate to you from the Prophet (salallāhu ‘alaihi wasallam) and you come to me with Abu Bakr and ‘Umar!?”

Reported by Ahmad (1/337), Ishāq Ibn Rāhūyah as cited in Al-Matālib Al-‘Āliyah (1/360) where it is stated: “We come to you with Allah’s Messenger (salallāhu ‘alaihi wasallam) and you come to me with Abu Bakr and ‘Umar?”

Also, Al-Khatīb in Al-Faqīh wal-Mutafiqqih (1/145), and the context is from him; and Ibn Hazm in Hajjatul-Wadā’ (p. 268-269) from routes of transmission to Ibn ‘Abbās; and Ibn ‘Abdul-Barr in Jāmi’ Bayān Al-‘Ilm was Fadlihi (2/239-240).

Sahīh, cited from Imām Muqbil Ibn Hādī Al-Wādi’ī in Shar’iyyatus-Salāh fin-Ni’āl p.34.
