Imaam Maalik (rahimahullah) once mentioned the following:

I would come to the home of Hazrat Naafi’ (rahimahullah), the freed slave of Hazrat ‘Abdullah bin ‘Umar (radhiyallahu ‘anhuma), at midday. The home of Hazrat Naafi’ (rahimahullah) was situated on the outskirts of Baqee’.

I would remain outside his home in the heat, without anything to shade me from the sun, waiting for him to emerge. When he would emerge, I would make it seem as though I had not been waiting for him for a long time. After he would see me, I would go to him and respectfully greet him with salaam. I would then accompany him until he would enter Balaat (a place in Madinah Munawwarah). After he would enter Balaat, I would ask him various masaa’il saying, “What was the view of Hazrat ‘Abdullah bin ‘Umar (radhiyallahu ‘anhuma) in such-and-such a mas’alah?” Hazrat Naafi’ (rahimahullah) would reply, “His view was such-and-such.” After he had answered my questions, I would depart.

At certain times, I would go to the home of Ibnu Hurmuz (rahimahullah) in the morning, and would remain with him until the evening, acquiring the knowledge of Deen, as he was among the great Fuqahaa.

(Tazyeen-ul-Mamaalik pg. 24-25)
