Recall Hell abundantly

Took honey from the treasury after public permission

Once, Sayyiduna ‘Umar Farooq-e-A’zam رَضِىَ اللهُ تَعَالٰی عَـنْهُ fell ill, the physicians prescribed honey for treatment. The honey was available in the treasury but he رَضِىَ اللهُ تَعَالٰی عَـنْهُ was not willing to take it without the prior permission of the Muslims. Hence, he رَضِىَ اللهُ تَعَالٰی عَـنْهُ visited the main Masjid and gathered the maximum number of Muslims to seek their permission. When people allowed, then he رَضِىَ اللهُ تَعَالٰی عَـنْهُ used it.

(At-Tabqat Ibn Sa’d, vol. 3, pp. 209)

He would observe fasts continuously

Sayyiduna Ibn ‘Umar رَضِیَ الـلّٰـهُ تَعَالٰی عَـنْهُمَا has said that Sayyiduna ‘Umar Farooq-e-A’zam رَضِىَ اللهُ تَعَالٰی عَـنْهُ observed fasts continuously for two years before his demise.

According to another narration: Except for Eid-ul-Adha, Eid-ul-Fitr and when travelling, Sayyiduna ‘Umar Farooq-e-A’zam   رَضِىَ اللهُ تَعَالٰی عَـنْهُ used to observe fasts on a regular basis.
