Many Muslim scholars or at least Imams of Jumu'ah prayer use to say this du'a (supplication):

O Allah, bless us in Rajab and Sha‘baan, and let us reach Ramadan

اللهم بارك لنا في رجب وشعبان وبلغنا رمضان

in Rajab and Sha'baan (the two months right before Ramadan). Is it a du'a made by the Prophet () himself of or by any of our Muslim authorities (Sahaba/Shi'a Imams etc.)?

I'd like to know if this du'a is authentic and what sources for that are available?

    Here is it in the Musnad of Ahmed; library.islamweb.net/hadith/… – Kilise May 2 '17 at 22:37
  • Are Shi'a imams considered an authority? – Qataada Aug 31 '19 at 21:57
  • @QatadaAl-Mubarak if you have a question you should ask it using the ask question link. – Medi1Saif Aug 31 '19 at 22:16
  • No I was just seeing you. Why did you put "Shia imams" as a "Muslim authority"? Ali Ibn Abi Talib, Hassan and Husayn (may Allah be pleased with them), aren't Shias, they're just Muslims (I don't know about the rest of the imams). – Qataada Sep 28 '19 at 19:23

according to islamqa.info (A website called "Islam Question and Answer" supervised by Shaykh Muhammad Saalih al-Munajjid) :

The hadeeth was classed as da‘eef by an-Nawawi in al-Adhkaar and Ibn Rajab in Lataa’if al-Ma‘aarif. It was also classed as da‘eef by al-Albaani in Da‘eef al-Jaami‘
