Reliability of scholar Al – Albani; What sahaba did when they were parting

Question ID: 32664

Assalamu alaikum, Respected Mufti Sahab, 1. Is Al-Albani a reliable scholar and can one rely on his works.

2.I have read that when two companions of Prophet met they wouldn’t part company until one of them recited surah al-Asr to the other. After doing so one of then would say Assalamu alaikum to the other. (at -Tabrani, Awsot 5124 Graded authentic by Al-Albani)

Please tell me how correct is this and can one practice this in real life
