I think you are referring to salat at-tawba.

Ugh, doesn't seem like the hyper link is working. 

Narsis shared this hadith:

here is a Hadīth from the beloved Prophet (p) in which he says:

(to do Tawbah) do Qusl and Wuḍhu, then do four Rakʻah prayer; in each Rakʻah recite the Surah al-Hamd one time, al-ʼIkhlās three times, al-Falaq one time, and al-Nās one time and do ʼIstiqfār at the end of the prayer and ask for forgiveness and then say: " لا حول و لا قوة الا بالله العلّی العظیم" and "یا عزیز یا غفار اغفرلی ذنوبی و ذنوب جمیع المؤمنین و المؤمنات فانّه لا یغفر الذنوب الا انت".

Then the Prophet (p) said: no Muslim is doing this prayer unless being told from the heaven that: O Allah's servant! Your repentance (Tawbah) got acceptance and your sins have been forgiven. Now renovate your deeds …

Thank you! But this seems quite long. For smaller sins is it sufficient to just ask for forgiveness verbally?

Istighfar suffices if it’s sincere and you intend not to repeat the sin. I also ask istighfar sometimes in sujud for normal salat.

Salam,

Istighfar is for all sins.  We make istighfar even we are not sinning.

The Prophet made istighfar 70 times on daily basis.

Istighfar is part of worshipping Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى),

1.  We pull 100% trust in Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) that He is ONLY one that can accept us, and safe us from misguidance, sins, errors and adverse consequences in hereafter.

2.  We are glorifying Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) by accepting the truth that we are weak, poor, ignorance... and only Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) is Everthing that is as stated in Holy Names.

Istighfar is important part our daily actions.

I remember one hadith...maybe others can qoute it... it said.. " sadaqah is good and it is better when it comes from the Rich people, istighfar is good and it is better when it comes from younger people..."

We need to make istighfar from younger age and be part of our daily routine and not when we are getting really really old.

Wallahualam.
