The most envied of people

Question

Can you provide the reference for this narration?

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

“The one most deserving of envy according to me is the one who has the least burden, who offers a [great deal] of Salah [and finds solace in Salah], worshipping his Rabb well, and obeys him[even] in private. He is unknown among the people [and is not paid any heed]. His provisions are only what is sufficient and he is patient/content with that.” Then he tapped with his fingers and said: “His death comes quickly, his mourners are few, and his inheritance is little.”
