Is this narration authentic?

إن كنا لنعد لرسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم في المجلس الواحد مائة مرة رب اغفر لي، وتب علي، إنك أنت التواب الرحيم



Imams Tirmidhi, Abu Dawud and Ibn Majah (rahimahumullah) have recorded this narration on the authority of Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Umar (radiyallahu ‘anhuma).

(Sunan Tirmidhi, Hadith: 3434, Sunan Abi Dawud, Hadith: 1511, Sunan Ibn Majah, Hadith: 3814)

Imam Tirmidhi has declared the Hadith authentic (hasanun sahih).



Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Umar (radiyallahu ‘anhuma) says, ‘In one gathering, we would count in one gathering that Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) would say ‘Rabbigh firli wa tub ‘alayya innaka antat tawwabur rahim/ghafur.’ [O Allah, forgive me and accept my repentance, for indeed You are the One who accepts repentance, and the Merciful/Forgiving]

Note: Some versions of the Hadith have the word ‘rahim‘ and other versions have ‘ghafur‘.

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
