The incident wherein Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) ordered a Sahabi to recite tasbih for ease in sustenance

Question

I want to know the authenticity of this Hadith. Can we recite this Tasbih as mentioned in this Hadith?

Once a companion (Sahabi) came to Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) and said the world has turned its back to me and complained of poverty, to which Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “Do you not remember the [tasbih] of the angels and the tasbih of the creation through which prosperities of sustenance is given?” He asked, “What is this tasbih O Rasulullah?” Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

“When Fajr time sets in, before offering the [Fard] of Fajr, recite Subhanallahi wa bihamdihi, Subhanallahil ‘Azimi wa bihamdihi, Astaghfirullah one hundred times.”
