Verification of Hadith; Soon people will invite each other plotting against you"

Question

Is the following narration authentic?

The Prophet (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

Soon people will invite each other plotting against you like how a person eating invites others to share their dish. Someone asked: ‘Will that be because of our small numbers at that time’? Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) replied: No, you will be many at that time, but you will be scum like that carried down by a flood, and Allah will take away the awe and fear of you from the chest of your enemy and cast ‘wahn’ into your hearts. Someone asked: ‘What is wahn’? Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) replied: ‘Love of the world and dislike of death’.
