Dua after committing A Sin

Abu Bakr (RadhiAllahu Anhu) narrated: I heard the apostle of Allah (SallAllahu Alaihi Wasallam) saying:

« مَا مِنْ عَبْدٍ يُذْنِبُ ذَنْبًا فَيُحْسِنُ الطُّهُورَ ثُمَّ يَقُومُ فَيُصَلِّي رَكْعَتَيْنِ ثُمَّ يَسْتَغْفِرُ اللَّهَ إِلاَّ غَفَرَ اللَّهُ لَهُ ‏»

When a servant (of Allah) commits a sin, and he performs ablution well, and then stands and prays two rak’ahs, and asks pardon of Allah, Allah pardons him. (Abu Dawood, Tirmizi)

He then recited this verse:

‏ وَالَّذِينَ إِذَا فَعَلُوا فَاحِشَةً أَوْ ظَلَمُوا أَنْفُسَهُمْ ذَكَرُوا اللَّهَ ‏…

And those who, when they commit indecency or wrong their souls, remember Allah” (Al-Qur’an 3:135).
