Hadith on Bearing: Rewards During Illness or Travel

📖Sahih al-Bukhari 2996
Narrated Ibrahim Abu Isma`il As-Saksaki: I heard Abu Burda who accompanied Yazid bin Abi Kabsha on a journey. Yazid used to observe fasting on journeys. Abu Burda said to him, “I heard Abu Musa several times saying that Allah’s Apostle said, ‘When a Servant falls ill or travels, then he will get reward similar to that he gets for good deeds practiced at home when in good health.”

  • The meaning of this hadith is that a person who is unable to perform their regular good deeds due to illness or travel will still receive rewards from Allah for their intentions and efforts. The rewards for good deeds performed during illness or travel are comparable to those earned while at home in good health. This emphasizes the importance of maintaining one’s faith and good intentions even in adverse circumstances and encourages Muslims to continue striving towards good deeds even when faced with obstacles.
