Sunan Abi Dawood 4976
The tradition mentioned above has also been transmitted by Abu Hurairah through a different chain of narrators. This version does not mention the Prophet ﷺ i.e, it does not go back to him. It has:

He must say: “My master” (sayyidi) and “My patron” (mawlaya).
حَدَّثَنَا ابْنُ السَّرْحِ، أَخْبَرَنَا ابْنُ وَهْبٍ، قَالَ أَخْبَرَنِي عَمْرُو بْنُ الْحَارِثِ، أَنَّ أَبَا يُونُسَ، حَدَّثَهُ عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ، فِي هَذَا الْخَبَرِ وَلَمْ يَذْكُرِ النَّبِيَّ صلى الله عليه وسلم قَالَ ‏
"‏ وَلْيَقُلْ سَيِّدِي وَمَوْلاَىَ ‏"‏ ‏.‏
