Authenticity of the dua for Rajab and Shabaan

Q: I would like to know whether reciting the following famous Dua is Sunnah/Permissible/Bidah:

اللَّهُمَّ بَارِكْ لَنَا فِي رَجَبٍ وَشَعْبَانَ، وَبَلِّغْنَا شَهْرَ رَمَضَانَ

Is there a strong command or a sign of permission from Rasulullah Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam regarding the recitation of this Dua in the months of Rajab and Shabaan?

A: It is a recommended dua recorded in the hadeeth. (Mishkaatul Masaabeeh)

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
