Sunan Abi Dawood 1091
Jabir said:

When the Messenger of Allah ﷺ seated himself on the pulpit on a Friday he said, Sit down. Ibn Mas'ud heard that and sat down at the door of mosque, and when the Messenger of Allah ﷺ saw him, he said: Come here, 'Abd Allah b. Mas'ud.

Abu Dawud said: This tradition is known as mursal (the successor reports directly from the Prophet, omitting then name of the Companion). The people narrated it from the Prophet ﷺ on the authority of 'Ata'. Makhlad is his teacher.
حَدَّثَنَا يَعْقُوبُ بْنُ كَعْبٍ الأَنْطَاكِيُّ، حَدَّثَنَا مَخْلَدُ بْنُ يَزِيدَ، حَدَّثَنَا ابْنُ جُرَيْجٍ، عَنْ عَطَاءٍ، عَنْ جَابِرٍ، قَالَ لَمَّا اسْتَوَى رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم يَوْمَ الْجُمُعَةِ قَالَ ‏"‏ اجْلِسُوا ‏"‏ ‏.‏ فَسَمِعَ ذَلِكَ ابْنُ مَسْعُودٍ فَجَلَسَ عَلَى بَابِ الْمَسْجِدِ فَرَآهُ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم فَقَالَ ‏"‏ تَعَالَ يَا عَبْدَ اللَّهِ بْنَ مَسْعُودٍ ‏"‏ ‏.‏ قَالَ أَبُو دَاوُدَ هَذَا يُعْرَفُ مُرْسَلاً إِنَّمَا رَوَاهُ النَّاسُ عَنْ عَطَاءٍ عَنِ النَّبِيِّ صلى الله عليه وسلم وَمَخْلَدٌ هُوَ شَيْخٌ ‏.‏
