What is the status of this Hadith?

أَدِّبُوا أولادَكم على ثلاثِ خِصالٍ : على حُبِّ نبيِّكم، وحُبِّ أهلِ بيتِهِ، وعلى قراءةِ القرآنِ، فإن حَمَلَةَ القرآنِ في ظِلِّ اللهِ يومَ لا ظِلَّ إلا ظِلُّهُ، مع أنبيائِه وأصْفِيَائِهِ

Teach your children three things;

1. Love for your Prophet (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam)

For indeed the bearers of the Quran will be under the shade of Allah’s [throne] with the Prophets and chosen ones, on a day in which there will be no other shade.
