What is the authenticity of the following narration?

“Sayyiduna Abu Sa’id Al Khudri (radiyallahu ‘anhu) narrates that Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) said:

“When the first night of Ramadan dawns, the doors of the skies are opened and none of its doors are then closed until the last night of Ramadan. No Mu’min performs salah during it’s night, but Allah Ta’ala will record for him one thousand five hundred good deeds for every sajdah that he makes and Allah will build a home for him in Jannah made out of red ruby, which will have sixty thousand doors, each of its doors leading to a palace made of gold, ornamented with rubies.
