I need reference for the following hadith to verify its validity :

"Once Moosa (AS) asked Allah Subhaana'O'Ta'ala:

O Allah! You have granted me the honor and privilege of talking to you directly, Have you given this privilege to any other person?

Allah Ta'ala replied, O!! Moosa during the last period I am going to send an Ummat, who will be the Ummat of Mohammed (SAW) with dry lips, parched tongues, emaciated body with eyes sunken deep into their sockets, with livers dry and stomachs suffering the pangs of hunger will call out to me (in dua) they will be much much closer to me than you O Moosa! while you speak to me there are 70000 veils between you and me but at the time of iftaar there will not be a single veil between me and the fasting Ummati of Mohammed (SAW) O!! Moosa I have taken upon myself the responsibility that at the time of iftaar I will never refuse the dua of a fasting person!"

May Allah bless u all.

This is mentioned by Abdul Rahman bin Abdul Salam as-Safuri in his book Nuzhat al-Majalis wa Muntakhab al-Nafais and it's a fabricated tradition that has no authenticity to it nor any reporters going back to the Prophet.

This is the Arabic:

قال موسى عليه السلام : يا رب ! أكرمتني بالتكليم ، فهل أعطيت أحداً مثل ذلك ؟ فأوحى الله تعالى : يا موسى ! إن لي عباداً أخرجهم في آخر الزمان وأكرمهم بشهر رمضان فأكون أقرب لأحدهم منك ؛ لأنك كلمتني وبيني وبينك سبعون ألف حجاب ، فإذا صامت أمة محمد صلى الله عليه وسلم حتى ابيضت شفاههم ، واصفرت ألوانهم، أرفع الحجب بيني وبينهم وقت إفطارهم . يا موسى ! طوبى لمن عطش كبده ، وأجاع بطنه في رمضان
