Consider the following tips,

  • Set a time table and adhere to it,

    • Contemplate on the virtues of making Ibadah and the punishments we have been warned against,
    • Make the effort to give up all that is haraam/ displeasing to Allah
      • Ponder over death,
      • Adopt the company of a pious person,
      • Don’t pay heed to the whispers of Shaytan,
      • Constantly cry and beg to Allah Taala to assist you in becoming a perfect Muslim,
      • Stipulate a monetary punishment on yourself if  a Salaah is missed,
      • Remember Allah Taala loves small deeds that are done with consistency.

We make dua Allah Taala assist you in all your pious resolutions. Ameen.
