I read online: "The Prophet peace be upon him also said: "Give charity without delay, for it stands in the way of calamity." - Al-Tirmidhi, Hadith 589

However, when I go to https://sunnah.com/tirmidhi/

I cannot find this hadith anywhere. I searched in multiple apps on google store as well, no luck. Please find the correct reference for me. Thanks.

    Thanks for the links but none of them reveal anything helpful about this hadith (for example a rawy or chapter or so) while the link of @ButarekHd (who should consider answering the question) shows that a similar hadith is falsely referred to the book of imam at-Tirmidhi and it is mentioned in a book about fabricated ahadith and is narrated on the authority of Anas ibn Malik ad 'Ali ibn abi Talib.

Closest hadith I can find is this:

إن الصدقة لتطفئ غضب الرب وتدفع ميتة السوء

Indeed charity extinguishes the Lord's anger and it protects against the evil death.

The reference for it is:

جامع الترمذي , كتاب الزكاة, باب ما جاء في فضل الصدقة

Jami` at-Tirmidhi , The Book on Zakat , Chapter: What Has Been Related About The Virtue Of Charity



They may be referring to the less well known Tirmidhi (Abu Abdullah Muhammad bin Ali Al-Hakim At-Tirmidhi Al-Khurasani Al-Hanafi) or one of the famous Tirmidhi's (Abu Isa Muhammad bin Isa bin Sawrah Ad-Dahak As-Sulami At-Tirmidhi) less well known books as he authored many. At any rate, this Hadith does not occur in the Sunan (Jami) of At-Tirmidhi and it is the burden of the narrator to provide its specific location as the burden of proof is upon the claimant. Try contacting the organization directly for clarity.
