عن أبي موسى الأشعري -رضي الله عنه- قال: قال رسول الله -صلى الله عليه وسلم-: «إذا مَرِض العَبد أو سافر كُتِب له مثلُ ما كان يعمل مقيمًا صحيحًا».
[صحيح.] - [رواه البخاري.]
المزيــد ...

Abu Mūsa al-Ash‘ari (may Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah (may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him) said: "If a person falls ill or travels, he shall be credited with whatever good deeds he used to perform while at home and in good health."
Sahih/Authentic. - [Al-Bukhari]

Explanation

If a person habitually performs some pious act when he is healthy or has free time, and then he becomes sick and therefore unable to perform this same deed, Allah, the Almighty, will record for him the reward in full, as if he has actually done it. The same holds true if a person is prevented from doing this usual act by a journey or anything else, like menses.

1: It shows the vast mercy and kindness of Allah towards His servants.
2: If a person becomes unable to do certain good deeds he habitually performs due to a lawful excuse, like travel or illness, while having a firm intention to resume it once he is able, he will have the full reward exactly as if he is healthy and in residence.
