While the Prophet was still in Khaybar, a Jewess presented him with a dressed and grilled lamb just when he was about to be served his dinner. Expressing his gratitude for the present, the Prophet took the shoulder, his favorite part, to eat, giving the man sitting next to him, namely ishr son of al!ar"# ibn $a%r&r al!Kha'raji al!(nsari who had )ourageously parti)ipated in the battles at adr and *hud, another pie)e and  passing pie)es to other
 sa¦haba
 who were present there and then as was always his habit. (s soon as the Prophet tasted the lamb, he reali'ed that it did not taste right. +ather than swallowing it, he spat it out. $eanwhile, ishr had already swallowed some of the meat. e )ollapsed and died instantly. -ondu)ting an intensive inuiry, the )ompanions of the Prophet )ame to know that that lamb had been prepared by a Jewish )aptive who was summoned and interrogated. /he defended herself by saying that that was her revenge for the loss of her father, brother, husband other relatives, for the devestation wrought by the $uslims on her people and )ountry. /he added saying that if $u0
