A: Make taubah and recite the kalimah and also announce your taubah in the presence of those people before whom you committed shirk and abandon all areas, ways and people that could lead you to shirk again.

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

إِنَّ الَّذينَ يَكتُمونَ ما أَنزَلنا مِنَ البَيِّنـٰتِ وَالهُدىٰ مِن بَعدِ ما بَيَّنّـٰهُ لِلنّاسِ فِى الكِتـٰبِ ۙ أُولـٰئِكَ يَلعَنُهُمُ اللَّـهُ وَيَلعَنُهُمُ اللّـٰعِنونَ ﴿١٥٩﴾ إِلَّا الَّذينَ تابوا وَأَصلَحوا وَبَيَّنوا فَأُولـٰئِكَ أَتوبُ عَلَيهِم ۚ وَأَنَا التَّوّابُ الرَّحيمُ ﴿البقرة: ١٦٠﴾
