So it depends on the methodology used by the Muhadith. One thing can be said is that the majority of Ulama do not class this hadith as fabricated that's for sure but many do class it as having some weakness. However the Hadith in question is considered as “Hasan” by Abu Abdillah Al-Nu’man- Al-Qawl al-Badee’, pg 382, Al Muassah al-Rayan.
Also in the virtues of Salat & Salaam, the great Muhadith Sheikh Zakariyyah rahmatullahi alayhi has narrated that this Hadith is dhaeef. However it has many chains of narration, which raise it to the rank of Hasan (p. 70). Even if it was weak, the majority of ulama say that dhaeef Hadith can be used for fadhaail (virtues).
So hold onto your practice without any doubts. Inshallah, Allah will bless you through the duas of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. One saintly person saw Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam in a *dream, who said to him, “I like Zakariyyah’s practice of Friday”. He related this dream to Sheikh and enquired about his habit of Friday. Sheikh Zakariyyah said, “I don’t have any particular practice except for the durood after Asr, which I have been reciting'.
And Allah knows best in all matters.
