خْبَرَنَا مُسْلِمُ بْنُ إِبْرَاهِيمَ، حَدَّثَنَا أَبَانُ، هُوَ الْعَطَّارُ حَدَّثَنَا قَتَادَةُ، عَنْ شَهْرِ بْنِ حَوْشَبٍ، عَنْ أَبِي عُبَيْدٍ أَنَّهُ طَبَخَ لِلنَّبِيِّ ﷺ قِدْرًا فَقَالَ لَهُ نَاوِلْنِي الذِّرَاعَ وَكَانَ يُعْجِبُهُ الذِّرَاعُ فَنَاوَلَهُ الذِّرَاعَ ثُمَّ قَالَ نَاوِلْنِي الذِّرَاعَ فَنَاوَلَهُ ذِرَاعًا ثُمَّ قَالَ نَاوِلْنِي الذِّرَاعَ فَقُلْتُ يَا نَبِيَّ اللَّهِ وَكَمْ لِلشَّاةِ مِنْ ذِرَاعٍ فَقَالَ وَالَّذِي نَفْسِي بِيَدِهِ أَنْ لَوْ سَكَتَّ لَأُعْطِيتُ أَذْرُعًا مَا دَعَوْتُ بِهِ

Shahr bin Haushab narrates from Abu ‘Ubayd Radiyallahu ‘Anhu:

“I cooked a pot (meat) for Rasulullah Sallallahu ‘Alayhi Wasallam. The Prophet (ﷺ) said to him “Give me a forequarter.” He loved this portion of the meat a lot, I served him that portion. He then ordered another one, I served the second one. He then ordered one again. I replied: ‘Ya Rasulullah ( ﷺ) How many forequarters are there in a goat? ‘. RasoolAllah ﷺ said: ‘I swear an oath by His Essence in whose hands is my life, if you kept quiet, you could have served me every time I requested one'”.
