Hadith: Most beloved creature

Al Tirmidhi in his Sahih reports that once when the Prophet (5) sat down to eat a fowl that had been prepared for his dinner, he prayed to God: “My God, bring the most beloved of Your creatures, that he may eat this fowl with me.” Then Ali (AS) came and the Prophet ate with him.
