Question

Is this Hadith authentic?

Translation

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) was gifted a silk garment. The Sahabah (radiyallahu ‘anhum) began to touch it and they were amazed at it’s fine quality. Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) asked, ‘Do you admire the softness of this garment? The handkerchiefs of Sa’d ibn Mu’adh in Jannah are [better and] softer than this

 

And Allah Ta’ala knows best.
