Barbecue with the Messenger of Allah

It is related that while on a journey, the Prophet (peace be upon him) ordered his companions to prepare a sheep for food.

One man said, “I will perform dhabh (slaughter) on it, Messenger of Allah”.

Another said, “I will skin it”.

Another said, “I will cook it”.

And the Prophet said, “I will gather the firewood”.

To this they all said, “Messenger of Allah, you don’t need to work; we will do whatever is to be done”.

“I know that you will do for me whatever is to be done,” said the Prophet, “but I do not like to be set apart from you. Allah does not like to see His servant aloof from his companions”.
