Nothing Remains Except the Shoulder

عَنْ عَائِشَةَ أَنَّهُمْ ذَبَحُوا شَاةً فَقَالَ النَّبِيُّ صلى الله عليه وسلم مَا بَقِيَ مِنْهَا ‏‏ قَالَتْ مَا بَقِيَ مِنْهَا إِلاَّ كَتِفُهَا ‏قَالَ‏ بَقِيَ كُلُّهَا غَيْرَ كَتِفِهَا قَالَ أَبُو عِيسَى هَذَا حَدِيثٌ صَحِيحٌ ‏‏ وَأَبُو مَيْسَرَةَ هُوَ الْهَمْدَانِيُّ اسْمُهُ عَمْرُو بْنُ شُرَحْبِيلَ ‏

Aisha (r.a) narrated that they had slaughtered a sheep, so the Prophet (s.a.w) asked: “What remains of it?” She said: “Nothing remains of it except its shoulder.” He said: “All of it remains except its shoulder.”
