Jaabir ibn ‘Abdullaah (a Companion) narrated that he called the Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, on the day of the battle of the Trench and said to him, “O Messenger of Allah, I have a small amount of food. So come with me, along with one or two people.” The Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, asked: “How much [food] is it?” I told him how much it was, so he, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, said: “It is good and plenty.” He, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, then said: “Stand up!” So all of the Muhaajiroon (Emigrants of Makkah) and Ansaar (residents of Madinah) stood up.

When Jaabir went to his wife he said: “The Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, is coming with the Muhaajiroon and Ansaar and all of those with them!” She said: “Didn’t he ask you?” He replied: “Yes.”The Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, said: “Enter and do not crowd.” He, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, then began to break the bread and put meat on it and then serve it to his Companions. He, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, continued to do that until everyone was full, and there was some left over. He, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, said to my wife: “Eat from this, and give it as a gift to others, for the people have been afflicted with hunger.

The guests from the Muhaajiroon and Ansaar were actually the guests of the Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, even if they were in the house of Jaabir. This is because increasing the food was a miracle of the Prophet of Allah, and the original food that Jaabir had was only sufficient for a few people, but Allah made it sufficient for all the people by the blessing of the Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam. The way the Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, served them with his own hands was an example of the hospitality of the Prophet of Allah, even though it was at the home of Jaabir.
