I dont know but this something that one Malaysian sheikh also wrote. I think it was akiti or something like that his name was. & as stated in the berelwis article- he said its mustahab as we can take fadhail from weak ahadith. he mentioned that it was a practice of Abu Bakr RA too. iv seen many arab shafi's do it too
The name of that scholar is Muhammad 'Afifi al-Akiti. He is in Oxford and is originally from Malaysia.
His answer on this issue is on the website of a person called Gibril Haddad.
Regarding the matter of taking fada'il from weak hadith remember that it is conditional upon the hadith not being too weak. And this hadith comes in the collections of mawdu' traditions, not just weak. It cannot be used as proof for Al Siddiq's practice either because of its severe weakness.
