Is this Hadith authentic?

أهديت لرسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم، حلة حرير، فجعل أصحابه يلمسونها ويعجبون من لينها، فقال:أتعجبون من لين هذه؟ لمناديل سعد بن معاذ في الجنة، خير منها وألين



Imams Bukhari and Muslim (rahimahumallah) have recorded this Hadith. The Hadith is therefore authentic.

(Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 3249-3802-5836, Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 2468)



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.
