What is the reference for this narration?

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “If the Angels would have made musafahah [Shaken hands] with anyone, then they would have shaken hands with a person waging Jihad in Allah Ta’ala’s way, with one who is kind to his parents and with one making Tawaf of the Ka’bah.”



I have not come across this narration in any of the primary Hadith sources.

The narration appears in Fadailu Makkah, a book attributed to Hasan Al Basri (rahimahullah). However, the attribution of this book to him appears to be inaccurate.
