Answer
In the Name of Allah, the Inspirer of Truth.
Assalamu Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh

Making Tawbah – A positive sign of a believer, after having sinned is the searing sensation of guilt. We must class Guilt as a blessing from Allah
Subhanahu Wa ta’ala and a mark of Imaan. Stoke this guilt to keep yourself firm on the Obedience of Allah Subhanahu Wa ta’ala. Keep making Istighfar
over past actions but do not mull over them to the extent that one loses hope – rather be positive and have hope in the Mercy of Allah, which is one
of the salient qualities of a Muslim. However, to hope for the Mercy of Allah without making sincere Tawbah is mere folly.

Conditions for Repentance:

To stop the sin;
Sincere regret for the commission of sin;
Resolve to guard oneself from the sin;

Allah says in the Qur’aan, “Ask your Lord for forgiveness and then turn in repentance to Him,” (11:3) and He says, “O you who believe! Turn in sincere
repentance to Allah.” (66:8)

Rasulullah Sallallahu Alaihe Wasallam said, “The one who repents from sin is like the one who never sinned.” [Ibn Maja (3240)] He also said, “Remorse is
repentance.” [Ibn Maja (4242) and Ahmad (3387)]

Abu Hurayra (Allah be pleased with him) reported that Rasulullah Sallallahu Alaihe Wasallam said, “Allah will turn towards anyone who turns in
repentance before the sun rises from the place it set.” [Muslim]

Find yourselves alternatives to keep occupied. Here are some ideas:

1. Take Bay’ah (pledge Allegiance) with a reliable and pious shaikh and continiue to frequent his companyand take his advise in all matters.

2. At the nearest opportunity spend some time in Jam’aat (Tabligh) for as long as you can, perhaps starting out with three days. This can give one
strong impetus to do good.

3. Read much Islamic literature written by our Noble, pious, reliable Scholars. Get advice from your local Scholars, as to which Kitaabs are
reliable. At least read the books written by Hadhrat Maulana Ashraf Ali Thanavi and Hadhrat Shaykh Maulana Zakariyya Sb Rahmatullahi Alaihim.
4. Hold Ta’leem in your house from the Fadha’il-A’amal for at least 10 minutes.
5. Make du’as after every Salaah seeking assistance and strength from Allah Subhanahu Wa ta’ala.
6. Whenever you feel that Shaytaan is tempting you then engage yourself in something else immediately.
7. On a daily basis, strive to improve your connection with Allah enhancing
your strengths and talents.
8. Set yourself a target to keep away from inciting this desire daily until days and weeks will pass. If one slips up, then do not mull over the
mistake rather initiate fresh Tawbah keeping positive. – Never lose hope.

Staying firm on Deen – Everyone mustering the courage to change, will be plagued by fears of falling back into the habit of “old sins”. May Allah
save us! So how does one keep strong on the faith? It is well known that one is known by the company that they keep. Keep in the company of the
perfume seller for one day and observe that, despite not buying one bottle of perfume, one would come out smelling of sweet perfumes. If one frequents
the company of an ironsmith, they will come out smelling of smoke. Undoubtedly pious company kept will be a means of keeping firm on the Deen.
Who do we make our “bosom buddies”? Well those who will help us in our Deen would be the correct answer if we want to stay on the straight and narrow.
Naturally, this will change our outlook in life and take us closer and closer to Allah Subhanahu Wa ta’ala.

Now, the question arises “Who is good company?” Those who would remind us of Allah and whose company would make it easier to stay away from sins would
be the obvious answer. Make friends, keep the company of those pious brothers who have connection with Deen. Your past will be firmly behind you for
certain Insha-Allah Ta’ala. Make Allah your objective and commence good deeds and make an effort to obey Him in all facets of life.

Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala says, “Those who believe, and whose hearts find rest in the remembrance of Allah, for without doubt in the remembrance of
Allah do hearts find rest.” (Surah 13:28)

Wazifa:
Please recite and mediatate over the following verse of Surah Iqra when ever the urge to sin becomes intense,

Alam Ya’lam Bi Annallaha Yara.
Translation – Does he not know that Allah is watching?

Also recite daily 100 times,

Ya Rahmanu – with the intention of pleading to Allah (SWT)’s infinite mercy for divine protection. One can attain purity and chastity only through Allah
(SWT) grace and mercy. When a servant takes a sincere step towards Allah (SWT, He does not deprive him/her.

May Allah (SWT) protect us all.

We hope we have gone some way to alleviating your predicament. If you have any follow up questions please do not hesitate to contact again.

May Allah guide us all onto the path of rectitude.

And Allah knows Best
