Q: I made a niyat a few months ago and now I want to make some changes to it because it is getting difficult to stick to the niyat. I made a niyat like this that “I am making niyat that I will stop committing this sin from today”
My question is, while making niyat I did not take Allah Ta’ala’s name, I just said that I am making this niyat and is it still necessary for me to stick to this niyat? I want to stay on this but I just want to make some changes in it.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
