Have you tried writing the description with spaces in quotes?
Something like this:

set firewall name ACL rule 1000 description 'My lovely spaces'
m.korobeinikov changed the task status from Open to Needs testing.Dec 24 2021, 2:40 AM

If i use this format ('test test test') it works well.
Is it possible using description with space without '' ?

Using a space in description withput quotation won‘t work. This is because the underlay of the CLI is bash and needs proper quotation.
