Is this Hadith authentic?
Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) is reported to have said:
“He who gives cloth to any destitute Muslim, remains in the security of Allah as long as a single piece remains on his body.”
Imam Tirmidhi (rahimahullah) has recorded this Hadith on the authority of Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Abbas (radiyallahu ‘anhuma). He has declared the Hadith sound (hasanun gharib).
(Sunan Tirmidhi, Hadith: 2484)

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
