The length of the sleeve of Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam)


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.
