عن أنس بن مالك رضي الله عنه قال رجعنا من غزوة تبوك مع النبي صلى الله عليه و سلم فقال إن أقواما خلفنا بالمدينة ما سلكنا شعبا ولا واديا إلا وهم معنا حبسهم العذر رواه البخاري وأبو داود ولفظه إن النبي صلى الله عليه و سلم قال لقد تركتم بالمدينة أقواما ما سرتم مسيرا ولا أنفقتم من نفقة ولا قطعتم من واد إلا وهم معكم قالوا يا رسول الله وكيف يكونون معنا وهم بالمدينة قال حبسهم المرض (الترغيب و الترهيب 1/65)
Hadhrat Anas (Radhiyallahu Anhu) reports that on one occasion while we were returning from the battle of Tabuk with Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam), Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: “There is a group of people who remained behind in Madina Tayyiba. During our journey there was no valley or mountain pass that we had passed by except that they were with us (i.e. in regard to receiving the reward of the journey). (In the report of Abu Dawood) Sahaabah enquired from Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam), “How is it so that they were with us in the reward, whereas they remained behind in Madina Munawwara?” Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: “(Allah Ta’ala has blessed them with the reward of passing by each mountain pass and valley, though they were not physically present with us on account of the fact that they had sincerely intended to come out with us on the journey,) however they were held back due to some valid excuse.
