CHAPTER: REWARD OF THOSE WHO COULD NOT JOIN A JIHAD EXPEDITION ON ACCOUNT OF ILLNESS OR SOME OTHER EXCUSE
It has been narrated on the authority of Jabir who said: We were with the Prophet (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) on an expedition. He said: There are some people in Medina. They are with you whenever you cover a distance or cross a valley. They have been detained by illness.
In a version of the tradition narrated on the authority of A'mash, we have the words:" They will share with you the reward (for Jihid)."
