Brief Comments on Riyaadh al-Saaliheen #10

When a person falls sick

بـسـم الله والحـمـد لله والـصلاة والـسـلام عــلى رسـول الله، وبـعـد

Shaikh al-`Uthaymeen رحمه الله said, commenting on the saying of the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم

“When a slave falls ill or travels, then he will get reward similar to that he gets for good deeds practiced at home when in good health” [1]

“The one who (always) desires to do good and is keen about it; if it is from his habit that he used to act upon it but was detained from doing it due to a reason, the reward for the complete deed is (still) written for him.

For example: If the person was in the habit of praying with the congregation in the Masjid, but he was detained from it due to a reason like sleep or sickness or something similar, the complete reward of praying in the congregation will be recorded for him without any deductions (in the reward).”

[1] Saheeh al-Bukhaaree (2996) on the authority of Abu Sa`eed al-Khudree رضي الله عنه.
