Anas reported that Messenger of Allah ﷺ had a neighbour who was Persian (by descent), and he was expert in the preparation of soup. He prepared (soup) for Messenger of Allah ﷺ and then came to him to invite him (to that feast). He (Allah's Messenger) said: Here is 'A'isha also (and you should also invite her to the food). He said: No. Thereupon Messenger of Allah ﷺ also said: No (then I cannot join the feast). He returned inviting him, and Messenger of Allah ﷺ said: She is also there (i. e. 'A'isha should also be invited). He said: No. Thereupon Messenger of Allah ﷺ also said: No (and declined his offer). He returned again to invite him and Messenger of Allah ﷺ again said: She is also there. He (the host) said:" Yes" for the third time. Then he accepted his invitation, and both of them set out until they came to his house.
وَحَدَّثَنِي زُهَيْرُ بْنُ حَرْبٍ، حَدَّثَنَا يَزِيدُ بْنُ هَارُونَ، أَخْبَرَنَا حَمَّادُ بْنُ سَلَمَةَ، عَنْ ثَابِتٍ،
عَنْ أَنَسٍ، أَنَّ جَارًا، لِرَسُولِ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم فَارِسِيًّا كَانَ طَيِّبَ الْمَرَقِ فَصَنَعَ
لِرَسُولِ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم ثُمَّ جَاءَ يَدْعُوهُ فَقَالَ ‏"‏ وَهَذِهِ ‏"‏ ‏.‏ لِعَائِشَةَ فَقَالَ لاَ ‏.‏
فَقَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم ‏"‏ لاَ ‏"‏ فَعَادَ يَدْعُوهُ فَقَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله
عليه وسلم ‏"‏ وَهَذِهِ ‏"‏ ‏.‏ قَالَ لاَ ‏.‏ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم ‏"‏ لاَ ‏"‏ ‏.‏ ثُمَّ عَادَ
يَدْعُوهُ فَقَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم ‏"‏ وَهَذِهِ ‏"‏ ‏.‏ قَالَ نَعَمْ ‏.‏ فِي الثَّالِثَةِ ‏.‏ فَقَامَا
يَتَدَافَعَانِ حَتَّى أَتَيَا مَنْزِلَهُ ‏.‏
