What is the status of this Hadith?

Narrated Abu Sa’id (radiyallahu ‘anhu) that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “Whoever says when he goes to bed thrice:

‘I seek the forgiveness of Allah, the one whom there’s none worthy of worship except for him the Living the Sustainer and I repent to him’

Allah shall forgive him his sins if they are like the foam of the sea, even if they were the number of leaves of the tree, even if they were the number of sand particles of ‘Alij and even if they were the number of the days of the world.'”

A du’a to recite four times in the morning or evening

Question

I have heard that this Hadith is recorded in Sahih Bukhari but it is weak. Can I still recite it daily?

Whoever says in the morning, “O Allah, we bear witness to you and we bear witness to the bearers of You Throne and Your angels and all Your creation. You are Allah. There is no god but You, alone with no partner and Muhammad is your slave and Messenger”

Through that, Allah will free a quarter of him from the Fire on that day. If someone says it twice, Allah will free half of him from the Fire. If he says it four times, Allah will free him completely from the Fire on that day.'”

(Sunan Tirmidhi, Hadith: 1905)

 

عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ رضي الله عنه عَنِ النَّبِيِّ صلى الله عليه وسلم قَالَ‏:‏ ثَلاَثُ دَعَوَاتٍ مُسْتَجَابَاتٍ‏ دَعْوَةُ الْمَظْلُومِ، وَدَعْوَةُ الْمُسَافِرِ، وَدَعْوَةُ الْوَالِدِ عَلَى وَلَدِهِ‏
