1. Feast at home of Sayyidunā Jābir رَضِىَ اللّٰهُ عَنۡهُ

Sayyidunā Jābir رَضِىَ اللهُ تَعَالٰی عَـنْهُ, one of the renowned companions, has narrated: During the battle of Khandaq, while we were digging the trench, a big boulder was unearthed. The companions approached the Holy Prophet صَلَّى الـلّٰـهُ تَـعَـالٰى عَـلَيْـهِ وَاٰلـِهٖ وَسَـلَّم and told him that they had encountered a very hard boulder. The Beloved and Blessed Prophet صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم replied, I am coming (into the trench). The Holy Prophet صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم then rose. He صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم had stones bound to his blessed stomach. We also had not eaten anything for three days. The Noble Rasūl صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم then took a pickaxe and struck the boulder, breaking it into pieces and turning it into a heap of sand. I said, ‘O the Beloved and Blessed Prophet صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم! Please give me permission to go home.’

On arriving home, I said to my wife that I could no longer bear to see the Noble Prophet صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم in this starving condition. Do you have anything to eat? She replied that there was some barley and a small goat. I slaughtered the little goat, kneaded the barley (into dough) and started cooking the food. When the food and breads were about to be prepared, I approached the Beloved and Blessed Prophet صَلَّى الـلّٰـهُ تَـعَـالٰى عَـلَيْـهِ وَاٰلـِهٖ وَسَـلَّم and said, ‘O the Noble Prophet     صَلَّى الـلّٰـهُ تَعَالٰى عَـلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم! I have a little food; please come along with a few companions.’ He صَلَّى الـلّٰـهُ تَعَالٰى عَـلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم asked, ‘How much food is there?’
