Exact wording for the du’a at the approach/beginning of Ramadan

Question

I wanted to find out regarding the exact words of the du’a at the advent of Ramadan, I have seen a reference of Kanzul ‘Ummal,

The common wording is:

اَللّٰهُمَّ سَلّمْنِيْ لِرَمَضانَ وَسَلّمْ رَمَضانَ لِيْ وَسَلّمْه لِي مُتَقَبَّلا

Allahumma sallimni li Ramadana, wa sallim Ramadana li, wa sallimhu li mutaqabbala.

However I tried looking for the wording ‘wasallimhu li’, but I couldn’t find it. I found ‘wa tasallamhu’ instead.

Please verify. Jazakumullahu khayran

 

Answer

The words you are searching for are in Kanzul ‘Ummal, vol.8 pg.584 & Hayatus Sahabah, vol.3 pg.182.

The words ‘watasallamhu’ are found in Kitabud Du’a of Imam Tabarani, Hadith: 912.

One may recite either of the two.

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
