Two Rak’ah for Repentance

Abu Bakr As-Siddiq (may Allah be pleased with him) said the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said, “Any person who sins then performs wudu correctly and prays and afterward seeks Allah’s forgiveness Allah forgives him.” Then As-Siddiq (may Allah be pleased with ) recited the verse” And those who when they commit an indecency or do injustice to their souls remember Allah and ask forgiveness for their faults – and who forgives the faults but Allah, and (who) do not knowingly persist in what they have done. {Al-Imran: 135}

Collected by Abu Dawud (1521) At-Tirmithi (406) Ibn Majah (1395) and Ahmed (1/2-8-9-10) graded as being Hasan by At-Tirmithi, Ibn ‘Adee, Ibn Kathir, At-Thahabee and Al-Albani (may Allah have mercy on them all)

Imam Ibn Taymiyyah (may Allah have mercy on him) said,” It is a recommended act for every person who sinned to perform Wudu then pray two Rak’ah.
[Majmu’ Fatawaa vol 21 / 139]
The Prophet ﷺ said:

“Make things easy and do not make things difficult. Give glad tidings and do not repel people..”
