Will only the clean enter Jannah?

Is the following Hadith authentic?

إن الإسلام نظيف فتنظفوا فإنه لا يدخل الجنة إلا نظيف


Islam is indeed clean/pure, so cleanse yourself for only the clean will enter Jannah


Cleanliness and taharah is an integral part of Islam as has been explained in other authentic narrations.

The narration in question is reported by Imam Tabarani, however it is extremely weak. Imam Bukhari (rahimahullah) and others have discredited the reliability of one of the narrators. The Muhaddithun have also singled out the teacher of this narrator, who reports extremely weak narrations/fabrications from this teacher. The Hadith in question is reported through this teacher of his and should therefore not be quoted.
