A follow up query on a Hadith in Majalisul Abrar


I  wanted to ask regarding your answer in this link:https://www.hadithanswers.com/reference-for-the-hadith-of-spending-1-huqb-in-jahannam/

Shaykh Zakariya (rahimahullah) said that this narration has been mentioned in the book Majālis al-Abrār.

I have been unable to find this narration amongst the collections of ahādīth that are available to me.

However, the Shaykh of our Mashāikh, Shāh `Abd al-`Azīz Dahlawī (rahimahullāh), has praised this book. my question is  is such an approach acceptable from scholars of Islam?

Especially in a book which is written for laymen?

Is this narration authentic? or are salafis correct for saying this is a fabricated narration?
