How can I become a better Muslim?. Start with fixing your Salaah and have righteous friends – that will motivate you to become better In Shaa Allah.
The Following are some helpful tips:
? Fix your Salaah. This is the best act – to pray salaah 5x a day at the fixed times.
? Fasting during the month of Ramadan (Sawm).
? Respect your parents
? Be dutiful to your parents. Be good with them for the sake of Allah Ta’ala. Love them and spend quality time with them. If they have passed on, make dua for their forgiveness and give charity on their behalf.
? The most beloved of deeds to Allah Ta’ala are those that are consistent, even if they are small.
? Have good manners.
? Be patient when something goes wrong and don’t get angry. Being Patient has great rewards.
Make a habit of Zikr all the time. Daily, say:
Laa ilaaha illallah,
Durood (salawaat ‘alan Nabi salallahu alayhi wasallam)
Subhanallahi wa bihamdihi etc.
? Gain Islamic knowledge and practice upon it.
? Implement the beautiful Sunnah in your daily life.
? Recite a portion from the Quraan daily.
? Spread Salaam when you meet a Muslim, say ‘assalamualaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh’.
? Never think you are better than others. Always be humble. Forgive other’s mistakes.
? Don’t be jealous. Make dua for them.
? Be happy with Allah’s decree for you, and always be grateful. Gratitude will increase your blessings.
? Make lots of dua. Dua is ibadah too. Ask Almighty Allah Taala for guidance to what pleases Him. And for steadfastness on Imaan. Ask Allah to make it easy to give up sins and to become obedient to His commands. Ask Allah for Jannat without Hisaab and for protection from the Hell-fire.
May Almighty Allah Ta’ala guide us on the path of Siraatul Mustaqeem
