Following up with good deeds after committing sins may even dissolve the sin of having external physical intimacy someone other than your spouse

tirmidhi:3112Qutaybah > Abū al-Aḥwaṣ > Simāk b. Ḥarb > Ibrāhīm > ʿAlqamah and al-Aswad > ʿAbdullāh

A man came to the Prophet ﷺ and said: "I fondled a woman who lives on the outskirts of Madinah, and I did with her what is less than intercourse, and here I am, so judge in my case as you will." So ʿUmar said to him: "Allah covered ˹your sins˺, so you should have ˹kept them˺ covered yourself." The Messenger of Allah ﷺ did not give him any reply.

The man left but the Messenger of Allah ﷺ sent a man after him to call him back. He recited to him: "And perform Salāh, at the two ends of the day and in some hours of the night. Verily, the good deeds remove the evil deeds. That is a reminder for the mindful (Hūd 11:114)" until the end of the āyah. A man among the people said: "Is this specific for him?" He ﷺ said: 'No. Rather for all of the people."  

Abū ʿĪsá said: This ḥadīth is Ḥasan-Ṣaḥīiḥ. This is how it was reported by Isrāʾīl > Simãk > Ibrāhīm > ʿAlqamah and al-Aswad > ʿAbdullãh from the Prophet ﷺ and it is similar. Sufyān al-Thawrī reported > Simāk > Ibrāhīm > ʿAbd al-Raḥmān b. Yazīd > ʿAbdullāh from the Prophet ﷺ similarly اnd the narrations of these people are more correct than the narration of al-Thawrī. Shuʿbah reported it > Simãk b. Ḥarb > Ibrāhīm > al-Aswad > ʿAbdullãh from the Prophet ﷺ similarly. Muḥammad b. Yaḥyá al-Naysabūrī reported > Muḥammad b. Yūsuf > Sufyān > al-Aʿmash and Simāk > Ibrāhīm > ʿAbd al-Raḥmān b. Yazīd > ʿAbdullāh from the Prophet ﷺ in the same meaning. Maḥmūd b. Ghaylān reported > al-Faḍl b. Mūsá > Sufyān > Simāk > Ibrāhīm > ʿAbd al-Raḥmān b. Yazīd > ʿAbdullāh b. Masʿūd from the Prophet ﷺ in the same meaning but he did not mention "from al-Aʿmash" in it. And Sulaymãn At-Taymī reported this ḥadīth from Abū ʿUthmãn al-Nahdi > Ibn Masʿūd from the Prophet ﷺ.

A man kissed a woman (unlawfully) and then went to the Prophet ﷺ and informed him. Allah revealed: And offer prayers perfectly At the two ends of the day And in some hours of the night (i.e. the five compulsory prayers).

A man kissed a woman and then came to Messenger of Allah ﷺ and told him of that, so this Divine Inspiration was revealed to the Prophet ﷺ 'And offer Prayers perfectly at the two ends of the day, and in some hours of the night; (i.e. (five) compulsory prayers). Verily, the good deeds remove the evil deeds (small sins) That is a reminder for the mindful.' (11.114) The man said, Is this instruction for me only?' The Prophet ﷺ said, "It is for all those of my followers who encounter a similar situation."

" And observe prayer at the (two) ends of the day and in the first hours of the night. Surely, good deeds take away evil deeds. That is a reminder for the mindful" (xi. 115).

Ibn Mas'ud reported that a person came to Messenger of Allah ﷺ and told him that he had kissed a woman or touched her with his hand or did something like this. He inquired of him about its expiation. It was (on this occasion) that Allah, the Exalted and Glorious, revealed this verse (as mentioned above).

This hadith has been narrated on the authority of Sulaiman Taimi with the same chain of transmitters that a person had taken liberty with a woman less than fomication. He came to 'Umar b. Khattab and he took it to be a serious offence. Then he came to Abu Bakr and he also took it to be a serious offence. Then he came the Allahs Apostle ﷺ and he made a mention of this to him. The rest of the hadith is the same.

Messenger of Allah, I sported with a woman in the outskirts of Medina, and I have committed an offence short of fornication. Here I am (before you), kindly deliver verdict about me which you deem fit. Unar said: Allah concealed your fault. You had better conceal it yourself also. Allah's Apostle ﷺ, however, gave no reply to him. The man stood up and went away and Allah's Apostle ﷺ sent a person after him to call him and be recited this verse:" And observe prayer at the ends of the day and in the first hours of the night. Surely, good deeds take away evil deeds. That is a reminder for the mindful" (xi. 115). A person amongst the people said: Allah's Apostle, does it concern this marn only? Thereupon he (the Holy Prophet) said: No, but the people at large.

So here I am; inflict any punishment you wish. Thereupon ‘Umar said: Allah has concealed your fault; it would have been better if you also had concealed it yourself.

“And perform prayers at the two ends of the day and in some hours of the night. Verily, the good deeds remove the evil deeds. That is a reminder for the mindful.” [11:114] The man said: “O Messenger of Allah, is this (the Verse) just for me?” He said: “It is for whoever acts upon it among my nation.”

“And perform the prayer, at the two ends of the day and in some hours of the night. Verily, the good deeds remove the evil deeds. That is a reminder for the mindful.” [11:114] He said: “O Messenger of Allah, is this only for me?” He said: “It is for everyone who acts upon it.”

[Machine] A man came to the Prophet ﷺ and said, "O Messenger of Allah, I encountered a woman in the garden. I embraced her, touched her, and kissed her, and I did everything except having sexual intercourse with her." The Prophet ﷺ remained silent. Then, this verse was revealed: "Indeed, good deeds do away with misdeeds. That is a reminder for those who remember." (Hud 114) The Prophet ﷺ called him and recited this verse to him. Umar said, "O Messenger of Allah, is this verse specific to him or for all people?" The Prophet ﷺ said, "No, it is for all people."

A man came to the Prophet ﷺ and said, "O Prophet of Allah, I took a woman in the garden, and I have done everything with her except that I did not have sexual intercourse with her: I kissed her, fondled her, but did nothing else. So, do with me as you wish." The Messenger of Allah ﷺ did not say anything to him. The man left, and ʿUmar said, "Allah has concealed his fault; if only he had concealed it himself."

The Messenger of Allah ﷺ then followed the man's gaze and said, "Bring him back to me." They brought him back, and the Messenger of Allah ﷺ recited to him, "And establish prayer at the two ends of the day and at the approach of the night. Indeed, good deeds do away with misdeeds. That is a reminder for those who remember. (Hūd 11:114)" Muʿādh b. Jabal asked, "Is this for him alone, O Prophet of Allah, or for all people?" He replied, "No, this is for all people."

"A man came to the Prophet ﷺ and said: 'O Messenger of Allah! What do you say about a man who meets a woman and there is no acquaintance between them. So there is nothing that a man who would do with his wife but he does it with her, except that he does not have intercourse with her?'" He said: "So Allah revealed: And perform the Salat, at the two ends of the day and in some hours of the night. Verily, the good deeds remove the evil deeds. That is a reminder for the mindful (11:114). So he ordered him to perform Wudu and Salat." Then Mu'adh said: "I said: 'O Messenger of Allah! Is that specifically for him, or for the believers in general?' He said: 'Rather it is for the believers in general.'" (Using translation from Tirmidhī 3113)

[Machine] I was sitting with the Prophet ﷺ when a man came and said, "O Messenger of Allah, a man has been afflicted by a woman whom it is not permissible for him to have relations with. He has not left anything that can afflict him from his wife except that it has afflicted him, except that he has not had intercourse with her." The Prophet ﷺ said, "Perform ablution well, then stand and pray." Then Allah revealed this verse {Establish prayer at the two ends of the day and at the approach of the night. Indeed, good deeds do away with misdeeds. That is a reminder for those who remember.} Mu'adh then asked, "Is this for him specifically, O Messenger of Allah, or for all Muslims in general?" He said, "For all Muslims in general."

كُنْتُ جَالِسًا عِنْدَ النَّبِيِّ ﷺ فَجَاءَ رَجُلٌ فَقَالَ يَا رَسُولَ اللهِ رَجُلٌ أَصَابَ مِنِ امْرَأَةٍ لَا تَحِلُّ لَهُ فَلَمْ يَدَعْ شَيْئًا يُصِيبُهُ الرَّجُلُ مِنِ امْرَأَتِهِ إِلَّا أَتَاهُ إِلَّا إِنَّهُ لَمْ يُجَامِعْهَا؟ فَقَالَ «تَوَضَّأْ وُضُوءًا حَسَنًا ثُمَّ قُمْ فَصَلِّ» فَأَنْزَلَ اللهُ ﷻ هَذِهِ الْآيَةَ {أَقِمِ الصَّلَاةَ طَرَفَيِ النَّهَارِ وَزُلَفًا مِنَ اللَّيْلِ إِنَّ الْحَسَنَاتِ يُذْهِبْنَ السَّيِّئَاتِ ذَلِكَ ذِكْرَى لِلذَّاكِرِينَ} فَقَالَ مُعَاذٌ هِيَ لَهُ يَا رَسُولَ اللهِ خَاصَّةً أَمْ لِلْمُسْلِمِينَ عَامَّةً؟ قَالَ «لِلْمُسْلِمِينَ عَامَّةً»

[Machine] A man came to the Prophet ﷺ and said, "O Messenger of Allah, I married a woman in the gardens and I did everything except that I did not see anything forbidden from her. I kissed her, embraced her, and did nothing else. So do to me what you wish." The Messenger of Allah ﷺ did not say anything to him. The man left, and Umar said, "Allah has concealed this for him. If he had concealed it himself, the Messenger of Allah ﷺ would have followed him." Umar then sent someone to bring the man back and he recited to him the verse, "And establish prayer at the two ends of the day and at the approach of the night..." [Hud: 114]. Mu'adh said, "Is this verse specific for him or for the people in general, O Prophet of Allah?" He ﷺ said, "It is for the people in general."

A man came to the Prophet ﷺ and said: I contacted directly a women at the furthest part of the city (i.e., Medina), and I did with her everything except sexual intercourse. So here I am; inflict any punishment you wish. Thereupon ‘Umar said: Allah has concealed your fault; it would have been better if you also had concealed it yourself. The Prophet ﷺ sent a men after him. (When he came) he recited the verse: “And establish regular prayers at the two ends of the day and at the approaches of the night. . .” up to the end of the verse. A man from the people got up and asked: Is it particular to him, Messenger of Allah, or for the people in general? He replied: It is all the people. (Using translation from Abū Dāʾūd 4468)
