Q: I am nowadays in financial crisis and have to pay a lot of debts. I am a Muslim but yes i admit that I have made a lot of sins and mistakes that I did not pray 5 times, now when I am in crisis I realised that it is all because I was gaafil from Allah. But now when I want to start salaah again with pure heart my friends says “If you are in trouble and you remember Allah it means you are in trouble” is it wrong if you realize your mistakes and you want to go to Almighty Allah?
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
