Is it true that the sleeves of the Messenger of Allah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) would come to his wrist?



Sayyidah Asma bintu Yazid (radiyallahu ‘anha) reports:

“The sleeves [of the upper garment] of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) would come to his wrist”

(Sunan Tirmidhi, Hadith: 1765 and Sunan Abi Dawud, Hadith: 4023)


Imam Tirmidhi has declared the Hadith sound (hasan).




And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.

This was the general and more common length of the sleeves of Rasulullah (sallallahu’alayhi wasallam).
