Subservience to Husbands

Prophet Muhammed (ﷺ) said, “The woman that is obedient and subservient to her husband; the birds in the air, fish in the sea, angels in the sky and animals in the jungles seek forgiveness for her. "After her sins have been forgiven her stages are elevated.” Is this hadeeth authentic?

I have not heard of this hadeeth before. Since there is no takhreej, that is the source to let us know which book it was transmitted in, it is difficult to make a judgement on it. However, in relation with this there is an authentic hadeeth narrated by the Prophet (ﷺ) that,

“If a woman prays her five daily Salaah, fasts in the month of Ramadan, safeguards her private parts (from zina) and obeys her husband she will enter Paradise from any gate that she wishes.”[1]
