It was narrated that 'Abdur-Rahman As-Sulami said:

" 'Umar said: 'The Sunnah is to hold the knees.'"
أَخْبَرَنَا سُوَيْدُ بْنُ نَصْرٍ، قَالَ أَنْبَأَنَا عَبْدُ اللَّهِ، عَنْ سُفْيَانَ، عَنْ أَبِي حَصِينٍ، عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ الرَّحْمَنِ السُّلَمِيِّ، قَالَ قَالَ عُمَرُ إِنَّمَا السُّنَّةُ الأَخْذُ بِالرُّكَبِ ‏.‏
