What is the authenticity and the Arabic text of this narration?

Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Abbas (radiyallahu ‘anhuma) said : “In every earth is a prophet like your Prophet, an Adam like your Adam, a Nuh like your Nuh, an Ibrahim like your Ibrahim and an Isa like your Isa.”



The Arabic text of this narration as appears in Mustadrak Hakim and Al Asma Was Sifat of Imam Bayhaqi (rahimahullah) is as follows:

عن ابن عباس، رضي الله عنهما، أنه قال: {الله الذي خلق سبع سماوات ومن الأرض مثلهن} قال: سبع أرضين في كل أرض نبي كنبيكم، وآدم كآدم، ونوح كنوح، وإبراهيم كإبراهيم، وعيسى كعيسى

(Mustadrak Hakim, vol. 2 pg. 493, Al Asma Was Sifat, pg. 363)

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
