اللَّهُمَّ أَغْنِنِي بِالْعِلْمِ وَزَيِّنِّيْ بِالْحِلْمِ وَأَكْرِمْنِيْ بِالتَّقْوٰى وَجَمِّلْنِيْ بِالْعَافِيَةِ

Transliteration:

Allahumma Aghnini bil 'Ilmi, (Oh Allah! Enrich me via Knowledge)

Wazayyinni bil Hilmi (Oh Allah! Adorn me with a sense of humility/gentleness)

Wa'akrimni bi Taqwa (Oh Allah! Deem me noble with Taqwa/Piety)

Wajammilni bil Afiyah (Oh Allah! Beautify me by keeping us in a state of well being/healthy)

A Dua taught by Yasir Qadhi. He said this is a Dua of Prophet peace be upon him. He don't give reference.

I need reference of this Dua from Hadith?

This hadith can be found in a couple of sources mostly with disconnected narrator chains or weak narrators:

  • You will find it in al-Hilm of ibn Abi Dunya (see here in Arabic) with a very disconnected chain Sufyan ibn 'Oyyanah سُفْيَانَ بْنَ عُيَيْنَةَ is a scholar of the 2nd Century after Hijra so he can't have heard the hadith from our Prophet.

    اللهم أَغْنِنِي بِالْعِلْمِ وَزَيِّنِّي بِالْحِلْمِ وَكَرِّمْنِي بِالتَّقْوَى وَجَمِّلْنِي بِالْعَافِيَةِ

  • There's another very weak isnad (chain) on the authority of 'Ali ibn Abi Talib in tarteeb al-Amali al-khmisiyah ترتيب الأمالي الخميسية of a-Shajari يحيى بن الحسين الشجري.

    اللَّهُمَّ أَغْنِنِي بِالْعِلْمِ، وَزَيِّنِّي بِالْحِلْمِ، وَأَكْرِمْنِي بِالتَّقْوَى، وَحَلِّنِي بِالْعَافِيَةِ

  • Ar-Rifa'i al-Qazwini الرافعي القزويني has also quoted it in his at-tadween fi akhbar qazwen التدوين في أخبار قزوين, with a better connected chain on the authority of Abudllah ibn 'Omar (apparently this is the chain ibn 'Oyyanah didn't quote as he is part of this chain).

    اللهم أغنني بِالْعِلْمِ وَزَيِّنِّي بِالْحِلْمِ وَكَرِّمْنِي بِالتَّقْوَى وَجَمِّلْنِي بِالْعَافِيَةِ

On the whole the fact that the hadith was more or less (always) mentioned with the same wording seems a good indication for a possible authenticity. And as weak ahadith in good deeds can be used it doesn't seem a bad or wrong du'a or supplication to use!

I found this thread in Arabic helpful.
