If you are speaking of Catholicism it would be an indulgence. This was something you could buy in order to take off time or punishment. Also, absolution. Something a priest would say to you to absolve you from a particular sin.

What is the name for the Catholic Church practice that granted release from the punishment of sins?

Reconciliation.Roman Catholic AnswerThere are two kinds of punishment for sin. In reconciliation (confession), the eternal punishment (separation from God eternally in hell) is entirely remitted, and the temporal punishment is partially remitted through your penance. The temporal punishment is due to the fact that all sin has consequences that we do not see, necessarily, and that we are bound, in justice, to repair the damage we have done - to the extent that we can. This punishment is remitted through good works - fasting, prayer, almsgiving; it is also remitted through an indulgence, a plenary indulgence remits ALL the punishment due to already forgiven sin. Anything not remitted in this life is paid for in purgatory as only the perfect can enter heaven.

Does the islamic belief solve the problem of sin suffering?

No, Quran does not address the issue of how the punishment of the sin problem is solved. For this reason, Quran teaches that all Muslims will have to go to hell (Surah 19:71). Judaic faith addresses sin problem through animal sacrifice. Christian faith addresses the issue of sin and its punishment by the sacrifice of Jesus. Since man was unable to save himself from the punishment of the sin problem, God gave mankind a way (Jesus Christ accepting punishment for sinners) to be saved from sin by believing in His Son Jesus (John 3:16).
