Deserting Sins Is Difficult… Here Are Some Useful Tips

Steps to Avoid Sins

First, we need to have a sincere desire to desert sins altogether and to start leading a life of virtue.

Second, we should realize our own weaknesses, particularly in the matter of avoiding the pitfalls of life, and so we should earnestly seek the help and blessing of Almighty Allah in our efforts.

Third, we should, as far as possible, keep away from all the circumstances that can tempt us toward sinful actions.

Fourth, we should strive to concentrate on virtuous thoughts and actions and to turn our minds away from the temptations that pull us toward sin.

Fifth, we should seek the company of Allah-fearing people and regularly attend sessions and lectures that instill taqwa (Arabic for: piety and fear of Allah) into our hearts.

Such efforts on our part will, hopefully, help us leave off the lapses in our life and attain a level of virtue that pleases Almighty Allah, insha Allah.
