Authenticity of the du’a to attain the fear of Allah

Question

Please verify the authenticity of this du’a:

Allahummaq sim lana min khasyatika ma yahulu baynana wa bayna ma’asika

 

Answer

Imam Tirmidhi (rahimahullah) has recorded this as part of a longer du’a which Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) would often recite when gathered with the Sahabah (radiyallahu ‘anhum).

He has declared the Hadith sound (hasanun gharib).

(Sunan Tirmidhi, Hadith: 3502)

 

See the Arabic text and translation of the du’a here.

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
