4 - وعن أبي عبد الله جابر بن عبد الله الأنصاري رضي الله عنهما قال : كنا مع النبي صلى الله عليه و سلم في غزاة فقال : [ إِنَّ بِالْمَدِينَةِ لَرِجَالاً مَا سِرْتُم مَسِيرًا وَلاَ قَطَعْتُمْ وَادِياً إِلاَّ كَانُوا مَعَكُمْ حَبِسِهُمُ الْمَرَضُ]
وفي رواية : إِلاَّ شركوكم في الأجر ] رواه مسلم
ورواه البخاري عن أنس قال : رجعنا من غزوة تبوك مع النبي صلى الله عليه و سلم فقال : [ إن أقواما خلفنا بالمدينة ما سلكنا شعبا ولا واديا ألا وهم معنا حبسهم العذر ].
4. 4- Jabir bin Abdullah Al-Ansari (May Allah be pleased with them) reported: We accompanied the Prophet (PBUH) in an expedition when he said, "There are some men in Al-Madinah who are with you wherever you march and whichever valley you cross. They have not joined you in person because of their illness.'' In another version he said: "They share the reward with you.''
It is narrated by Bukhari from Anas bin Malik (May Allah be pleased with him): We were coming back from the battle of Tabuk with the Prophet (PBUH) when he remarked, "There are people whom we left behind in Al-Madinah who accompanied us in spirit in every pass and valley we crossed. They remained behind for a valid excuse.''
Commentary: What we learn from this Hadith is that if the intention and spirit of Jihad are present in the heart of a Muslim but physically he is unable to take part in it for valid reasons, he will get the reward of Jihad without even his actual participation in it.
