Is this Hadith reliable?
Al Mughirah (radiyallahu ‘anhu) reported, “Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) wore a Roman coat (jubbah) with tight sleeves”
Imam Tirmidhi, Imam Ahmad (rahimahumallah) and other Muhaddithun have recorded these words. Imam Tirmidhi (rahimahullah) has declared the Hadith authentic (hasanun sahih).
(Sunan Tirmidhi, Hadith: 1768 and Musnad Ahmad, vol. 4 pg. 255)
Imam Bukhari and Imam Muslim (rahimahumallah) have recorded slightly different words.
(Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 363, Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 274. Also see: Tuhfatul Ahwadhi, Hadith: 1768)
And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
