The da’amis of Jannah; Children who pass away before puberty

Question

Could you reference this narration?

Abu Hassan (rahimahullah) once said to Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah (radiyallahu ‘anhu): “Two of my sons have passed away, can you narrate to me any Hadith from Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) which will console us for our loss?” He said, ‘Yes, [Nabi sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam said] Their little ones [i.e. Children who pass away before puberty] are the little ones (da’amis) of Jannah. When one of them meets his father -or his parents- he takes hold of his garment -or his hand- as I am taking hold of the hem/edge of your garment and he does not let go until Allah admits him and his father [parents] to Jannah.'”
