What is the authencity of the hadeeth below, note that there are also variants with slightly different wordings.

Hadhrat Abdullaah bin Mas’ood (R.A) reproaches a group who changed the method of dhikr.Abu Nu’aim (R. A) reports in Hilya (Vol.4 Pg.381)
from Abil Bakhtari (R. A), who says,
“Someone informed Hadhrat Abdullaah bin Mas’ood (R.A) about a group of people who used to sit in the Masjid after Maghrib. A person from amongst them tells the others, ‘Recite Allahu Akbar in such and such a manner. Recite Subhaanallah in such and such a manner. Recite Al Hamdulillaah in such and such a manner.’

Hadhrat Abdullaah bin Mas’ood (R.A) asked, ‘Do they then do as he says?’ ‘Yes, replied the person.’ Thereupon, Hadhrat Abdullaah bin Mas’ood (R.A) told him, ‘Inform me when you see them gathering again.’

Hadhrat Abdullaah bin Mas’ood (R.A) then came to this group, wearing his high hat, and sat with them. When he heard what they were saying, he stood up (he was a stern man).
He said, ‘I am Abdullaah bin Mas’ood. By Allaah, besides Whom there is none worthy of worship! Verily you people have certainly perpetrated a bid’ah most unjustly!’? The narrator says that Hadhrat Abdullaah bin Mas’ood (R.A) may have added the words, ‘Are you people superior than the companions of Muhammad (sallallahu-alayhi-wa-sallam) in knowledge?’

Ma’dad said, ‘By Allaah! We never intended to perpetrate a bid’ah unjustly, nor are we superior than the companions of Muhammad (sallallahu-alayhi-wa-sallam) in knowledge.’ Amr bin Utba said, ‘We seek forgiveness from Allaah.’ Thereupon Hadhrat Abdullaah

bin Mas’ood (R.A) told them, ‘It is compulsory for you to follow the path. Strictly adhere thereto. By Allah! If you will do so, you will have advanced far ahead. Verily, if you start going left and right, you will stray far off.'”
