A prayer for the forgiveness of sins

In the Noble Qur’an, God Almighty says: (Our Lord, forgive us our sins and atone for our sins).[1] And in the Sunnah of the Prophet, may God’s prayers and peace be upon him, he said: (Shall I not guide you to the master of seeking forgiveness? Oh God, you are my Lord, there is no god but You, You created me, and I am Your servant, and I abide by Your covenant and promise as much as I am able, I seek refuge in You from the evil of your evil, for your evil and what I have done. For my sins, so forgive me my sins, for no one forgives sins except You, and no one says them when it becomes evening, so fate comes upon him before dawn except that Paradise will be obligatory for him, and he does not say it when it comes to him, then it will be poured upon him.)[2]
