After extensive research, we concluded The exact Dua doesn’t have any reference to Quran or Hadith. Still, the Dua seems to be a stretched version of the authentic dua that was taught to us by our Prophet Muhammed (ﷺ) Astaghfirullah Wa Atubu Ilaih أَسْتَغْفِرُ اللَّهَ وَأَتُوبُ إِلَيْهِ”.

As you can see the difference is adding the word Rabbi -My lord- which is unusual from the Arabic language perspective considering that Allah was already mentioned right before it, so it doesn’t add much a value to the dua.

The other difference is Min Kulli Zambiyonfrom every sin– which is also a stretch or extension to the word Astagfiru as this word alone is sufficient to mean that you asking forgiveness for every sin.

Yet, there is no problem in reciting this dua if you are comfortable with as long you are aware it is not quoted from the Quran or hadith and doesn’t hold any advantage over the other type of Istigfar.
