`Hazrat Aishah RA reported: Nabi (صلى الله عليه وسلم) had slaughtered a sheep and asked that the portions of its meat be distributed. Then he asked, “What is left of it?”. I replied, “Nothing remains except its shoulder (ie, it has yet to be distributed).” Thereupon he said, “All of it remains except its shoulder. (ie, its rewards)” [Tirmidhi]
