What is authenticity of the following narration?

من نظر إلى غلام أمرد بريبة حبسه الله في النار أربعين عاما



‘Allamah ibn Taymiyyah (rahimahullah) has referenced this narration to Ibnul Jawzi [without mentioning a specific book]. I have not come across the complete chain.

(Majmu’ul Fatawa, vol 15 pg. 377)


And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
