Story of Sharing Workload

Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) and His companions went on a journey. They travelled by camels. After much travelling they got tired and they stopped to rest. They decided to make a small camp and cook their food. So they put their camels comfortably to rest and gave them grass to eat. After that His companions decided to divide the work among themselves.

One companion said, “I will go and slaughter the lamb for meat.”
Another companion said, “I will clean the ground around the camp.”
The third companion said, “I will do the cooking.”
Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said, “I will bring wood for the fire.”
The companions said: “O Messenger of Allah, it is not becoming of you to discomfort yourself as such. You rest. We will be honored to do all this on our own.”

The Prophet (S.A.W.): “I know that you are eager to do it all, but Allah isn’t pleased with the slave who distinguishes between himself and his companions, and considers himself better than others.”

Then he went to the desert, and gathered some wood, and brought it to the group.
