Asking for forgiveness is the successful remedy for getting rid of sins. This is why the Prophet  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allah exalt his mention ) ordered us to ask for the forgiveness of Allah, The Almighty, frequently.
The Prophet  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allah exalt his mention ) said: “O people! Ask for the forgiveness of Allah and repent to Him as I ask for the forgiveness of Allah and repent to Him one hundred times a day.”

Allah, The Almighty, is satisfied with the one who asks for His forgiveness as this person acknowledges his sin as if he says, “O Allah! I have made a mistake and I was negligent with Your rights as I wronged myself and the devil tempted me and my soul, which is a persistent enjoiner of evil, betrayed me. I relied on Your mercy, forgiveness, and forbearance. Now, I come to You while repenting and regretting, so forgive me, remove my sins and mistakes as I do not have any other Lord but You. O Allah! Even if my sins are grave, Your Forgiveness is greater and more comprehensive."
