Which Supplication for the Azan do you know?

Abd al-Raḥmān al-Mubārakpūrī (d 1353H) in his commentary on Sunan al-Tirmidhī writes: “There are two additions to this supplication that are commonly uttered: the first is adding the phrase innaka lā tukhliful mī‘ād at the end, and the second is adding the phrase waʼd-darajat al-rafī‘ah in the middle after the word faḍīlah. The first addition is from a narration of Imām al-Bayhaqī, and as for the second, I have not been able to find any narration supporting it.” Mulla ‘Alī al-Qārī (d 1014H) also confirms in al-Mirqāt: “As for the addition waʼd-darajat al-rafī‘ah that is common among the masses, Imām al-Bukhārī (d 256H) states that he has not come across any narration supporting it.”
