A narration stating the virtue of reciting Bismillah twenty one times before sleeping

Question

I wanted to know if the following is authentic and found in Hadith?

“Whoever says ‘Bismillah’ 21 times before falling asleep, Allah tells the angels to write down a good deed for every breath he takes.”

 

Answer

I have not come across this narration in any primary source nor in any secondary source.

The Hadith should not be quoted until it can be sourced and then verified.

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
