Answer

The source that you have cited is an unknown one. The authors who enlist the various collections of Hadith books have not made mention of such a kitab.

Furthermore, the traditional biographers of Hadith narrators and Hadith authors also don’t mention the author of the source in question.

Recent biographers mention him to be a Scholar of the Ibadi sect; a deviant group.

One should not read this book or quote from it.

 

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best,
