What is the authenticity of the following narration?

Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

That person who is not able to give sadaqah should say the following durud in his du’a:

اللَّهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ عَبْدِكَ وَرَسُولِكَ وَصَلِّ عَلَى الْمُؤْمِنِينَ وَالْمُؤْمِنَاتِ وَالْمُسْلِمِينَ وَالْمُسْلِمَاتِ

‘Allahumma salli ‘ala Muhammadin ‘abdika wa rasulika wa salli ‘alal mu’minina  wal mu’minat wal muslimina wal muslimat’
