A du’a to recite when one is unable to stop evil?

What is the status of this narration?

وروي عن بعض الصحابة رضي الله تعالى عنه , أنه قال: إذا رأى أحد منكم منكرا لا يستطيع النكير عليه، فليقل ثلاث مرات اللهم إن هذا منكر فلا تؤاخذني به، فإذا قال ذلك فله ثواب من أمر بالمعروف ونهى عن المنكر


This has been cited in Tambihul Ghafilin without a chain. I have not come across its chain of narrators.

(Tambihul Ghafilin, pg. 98)


It has been reported that a Sahabi said: “When anyone sees some wrong taking place and he is unable to express his disapproval, he should recite the following du’a thrice: Allahumma inna hadha munkarun fa la tua-khidhni bihi [O Allah this is something wrong so do not take me to task for it]. If he says this, he will be rewarded for enjoining good and forbidding evil.

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
