Wa’alaykum as Salam wa rahmtullahi wa barakatuhu,

You should firstly implore Allah to forgive you, and assist you. With that, you should again beg your mom for forgiveness. If you are earning, you should work on a plan to repay her. You should try to be kind to your mom, and slowly win over her confidence again. We pray that Allah makes it easy for you.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best
