Shama-il Tirmidhi Chapter 025, Hadith Number 028 (170).

Hazrat Jabir ibn Abdullah radiyallahu anhu says, Rasoolullah sallallahu alaihe wasallam came to our house. We slaughtered a goat in his honour. Rasoolullah sallallahu alaihe wasallam said, ‘It is as if they knew we adore meat. (Imam Tirmizi says, This hadith has a long incident, of which a portion is mentioned briefly here.)

Commentary.
It is said that this is a part of the incident which is mentioned in the books of hadith on the subject of the Battle of Khandaq, wherein a miracle of Rasoolullah sallallahu alaihe wasallam is also mentioned. Sayyidina Jabir radiyallahu anhu says, I saw the sign of hunger on Rasoolullah sallallahu alaihe wasallam. I went home and asked if there was some food. We had a lamb, and some barley in a bag. I slaughtered the lamb and my wife ground the barley into flour. The meat was put in a pot to cook and I went to Rasoolullah sallallahu alaihe wasallam and quietly said to him, ‘Some food is ready.’ I invited Rasoolullah sallallahu alaihe wasallam and a few companions.

Upon hearing this Rasoolullah sallallahu alaihe wasallam announced to all those present at the trench, who numbered to about a thousand, that there was an invitation at the house of Jabir, and all were invited. Rasoolullah sallallahu alaihe wasallam told me not to remove the pot from the fire and not to prepare the bread till he came. When Rasoolullah sallallahu alaihe wasallam came, he made damm (prayed then blew) on the pot, as a result there was so much barakah that curry kept on coming out of the pot, and bread was being made from the dough. I swear by Allah that the thousand people ate and went away but the curry kept coming out of the pot, and bread was continuously being made from the dough.
