Q: Please give me a strategy of becoming a pious person. How do I become pious, what to follow, when to do things, what to stay away from?


A: For the time being start off with the following program for at least 15 minutes in the mornings and evenings:

(1) Ta`leem of Fazaa’il-e-A`maal, Fazaa’il-e-Sadaqaat and Bahishti Zewar.
(2) Recitation of a portion of the Qur’aan Shareef and some zikr.
(3) Du`aa at the end of each session.

Abstain from all haraam and doubtful things, whether it is people, places or electronic devices or magazines etc.

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