Wearing simple clothing despite being able to afford extravagant clothing

Question

What is the authenticity of the following narration?

“Whomsoever refrains from wearing good garments out of humility towards Allah though he is capable of wearing that then Allah will summon him on the Day of Qiyamah at the head of all creation and give him choice to wear any of the dresses of Iman.”

 

Answer

Imam Tirmidhi (rahimahullah) has recorded this Hadith on the authority of Sayyiduna Mu’adh ibn Anas Al Juhani (radiyallahu ‘anhu) and has declared the Hadith sound (hasan).

He further explains that ‘Garments of Iman’ refers to the garments of Jannah which will be bestowed to the Believers

(Sunan Tirmidhi, Hadith: 2481. Also see Mustadrak Hakim, vol. 1 pg. 61)

 

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
