Struggling with Insincerity in Deen: How to Move Forward

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: I feel very disturbed right now. I know I havn’t been sincere the whole time I was practicing deen and I have even had polluted intentions of practicing whole deen. From what I understand is that none of my ibaadat will get excepted except durroods. What can a person like me do in this situation. I know that I still need to obey Allah regardless but I feel very miserable right now and it is affecting my ibaadat. Please help.


A: There is no need to become despondent. The mercy of Allah Ta`ala is extremely vast. Refer to some pious shaikh who is nearby and around you. Insha-Allah, he will be in a better position to guide you.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
