The third one said, “I shall do the roasting.”
Each one of them volunteered to do one piece of work.
The Prophet (P.B.U.H&H.P) of Islam said, “I shall collect and bring the firewood from the forest.”
The companions said, “Oh Prophet! You need not take the trouble. We shall attend to everything.”
The Prophet (P.B.U.H&H.P) said, “I know you can do everything. But I do not like to enjoy a preferential treatment from you. God Almighty does not like to see a person distinguishing himself from his companions.” Thus the Prophet went and brought firewood from the forest;
This is one of the examples set by the Prophet of Islam on co-operation and working together for a common good.
