What is the degree of authenticity

Q 5: I came across a Hadith quoted in a magazine, and I want to know its authenticity, and if there is truly a Hadith with this wording. It is said to be a Hadith Qudsy (Revelation from Allah in the Prophet’s words) and the following is its text: I, mankind and Jinn are in a great serious state. I create, but others than Me are worshipped; I give, but others than Me are thanked!


A: This Hadith was stated in the book Al-Ithafat Al-Sunniyah on the authority of Mu‘adh (may Allah be pleased with him) that the Prophet (peace be upon him) said: Allah (Blessed and Exalted be He) says, 'I, mankind and Jinn are in a great serious state. I create, but others than Me are worshipped! I give, but others than Me are thanked!'
