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?

  • Are Shi'a imams considered an authority?

    @QatadaAl-Mubarak from sunni perspective none of these scholars are shi'a what I and almost everybody mean when referring to shi'a imam is those scholars or individuals that shi'a consider imams according the shi'a interpretation of "imam" in this case.

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‘
