Respected ‘Ulama

With reference to the answer here, what is the status of the words mentioned below? Are they established in the Hadith of Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam)?

من أقامها فقد أقام الدين ومن تركها فقد هدم الدين

Whoever establishes it has established Din and whoever neglects and destroys it has destroyed Din



This narration is cited in certain Fiqh books. I have not come across these words in a primary Hadith source.

(Refer: Kashful Khafa, vol. 2 pg. 35)


And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
