A follow up query on a Hadith in Majalisul Abrar


I  wanted to ask regarding your answer in this link:

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?

‘A little showing off is polytheism (shirk) and whoever shows enmity towards a friend of Allah has declared war on Allah. Allah loves those who are righteous, pious and (outwardly) lowly -those who if they are absent, are not missed, and if they are present, are not acknowledged-. Their hearts are lamps of guidance and they come out from every dark place (ie. from every trial and tribulation)’
