I am reading the wikipedia page on Dua Simat دعاء السمات, but it does not clearly reference any Islamic texts.

Are there any (sunni) hadiths relating to this Dua?

Edit: From wiki,

The initial (English translated) part of Du'a Simat is:

Allah! I beseech Thee through Thy Name, the most great, the most majestic, the most magnificent and the most noble. If Thou art requested therewith to open the closed doors of the sky these will open with Thy mercy. If Thou art requested thereby to remove the narrowness of the doors of the heaven, they will be opened wide. If Thou art requested thereby to make easy the dif..

    This du'a can be found in shi'a sources and they attribute it to ahl-al-Bayt pretending it includes Allah's most powerful (or best) name الاسم الأعظم.
