    How do I go back to being a pious Muslim

    Report bad ads?

    I feel like imaan and taqwa and religion no longer excites me. islam no longer excites me. im just tired of it all. i get so tried of backstabbing politics, backwards cultural practices, constantly having to explain myself with apologetics and dawah, and being seduced by the wonders of this world.
    it has gotten to the point where if i see, on a forum, (a secular one),
    a parent complaining that their 16 year old son is doing something haram, i feel like shouting "why is it any of your business????"
    it has gotten to the point where when i have left the islamic side of youtube out of disgust for their politics and cultural backwardsness and general backwardsness, that i turn to the secular side, and i even turned to quora (a leftist leaning information site) before i was banned, to the point that now whenever i see a video about a gay couple and how much they love each other, i feel like writing, "awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww <3" like one video i saw today ... (i only saw a few seconds, but got bored).
    it has gotten to the point where i feel disgusted where evolution is banned in muslim nations' school curriculula, simply because i despise their leader, and because i mysefl have started to believe in evolution.
    it has gotten to the point where i have started to believe in rights for gays even in muslim countries, despite believing (in principle, i no longer feel disgust for the lifestyle), that gays will go to hell.
    it has gotten to the point where i have started to idolize romantic love in the manner played out by westerners, in the form of western style dating, and have even made goals to date, with the aid of my mother, who was even disappointed to hear i cut off plans with one girl out of fear of Allah, as well as fear of the unknown.

    it has gotten to the point where i have started to idolize Ataturk more than Said Nursi, and even considered if the dajjal and mahdi system were all based on weak hadeeth or all fulfillfed by Umar II. (RA)

    it has gotten to the point where I no longer pay attention the events in filisteen, (I think of them as backwards, islamist supporting terrorists astaghfirullah),
    or syria (punishment for betraying ottomans, punishment for aiding sunni terrorists who are just as bad as assad astaghfirullah)
    or yemen (all i know about them is that they marry off 10 year old girls like nujood ali, let them kill each other, i say to myself, astaghfirulah")
    i have become numb to the suffering o the ummah


    what should i do?

    And should you fail at any one thing. Stop, and reflect on why you failed, and ponder, ways which you can improve your focus and resolve for the next attempt.

    And... be kind to your parents.

    Re: How do I go back to being a pious Muslim

    brother,you can ask me whatever you want about evolution
    listen to ustadh nouman ali khan
    ---
    1. It is greater for a thing to exist in the mind and in reality than in the mind alone.
    2. "God" means "that than which a greater cannot be thought."
    3. Suppose that God exists in the mind but not in reality.
    4. Then a greater than God could be thought (namely, a being that has all the qualities our thought of God has plus real existence).
    5. But this is impossible, for God is "that than which a greater cannot be thought."
    6. Therefore God exists in the mind and in reality.
    -----------++-----
    The expression "that being than which a greater cannot be thought" (GCB, for short) expresses a consistent concept.
    GCB cannot be thought of as: a. necessarily nonexistent; or as b. contingently existing but only as c. necessarily existing.
    So GCB can only be thought of as the kind of being that cannot not exist, that must exist.
    But what must be so is so.
    Therefore, GCB (i.e., God) exists.

    Brother I wrote this a long time ago, and my imaan is much higher now, so you are long overdue, and besides, Nouman Ali Khan is a hypocrite as he has numerously warned youth on avoiding the opposite sex when he got in trouble for sexually harassing women, confessing to other shaikhs, being told to not publish more videos, and then publishing more videos, which led to them releasing the info.

    Re: How do I go back to being a pious Muslim

    1) Be kind and polite and avoid sinful things
    2) Improve yourself and make strong your iman everyday, the day tomorrow should be more better than the day today and yesterday, etc
    3) Dhikr, dhikr, dhikr..takbir, tahlil, tasbih. Dhikr is the one most beloved by Allah swt

    Re: How do I go back to being a pious Muslim

    We don't change our way as disbelievers do every day. When Isa (pbuh) returns, he will permit things that are currently haram, and only then are they allow.

    I don't have it on me at the moment, but it's in the official English Quran hadiths. I've read it 100 times.

    We know the Isa will abolish the jizya tax on the disbelievers and that Islam will only be allowed, what else is he abrogating?

    what should i do?
    Salam brother, im saying this as a sister who wasn't properly "invested" in her deen until abt a couple of years back- i prayed fasted and knew the basics but that was it tbh- i wasnt a very spiritual person tbh and i felt a bit weird making dua- i felt i wasnt being listened to and it was all a bit silly( astaghfirullah). Anyway i digress
    Here's what helped me:
    You have to make Islam personal to you: eg salah, i remember once freaking out because i didnt have this super amazing connection with God during salah but you gotta make it personal: i see my salah now as "catchup time" between me and God: i literally just pour my heart out tbh, or i give thanks, or i make dua etc. Salah isnt a clear cut thing, you have to make it personal to you.

    Read the Quran in ur first language, even if u can read Arabic: i cannot recomend this enough!! I personally love the Muhammad Asad translation and i quite enjoy the Saheeh international one( thats the one i use when reading online, or an app etc) and the Asad one when im just chilling at home.

    Set aside a bit of time to read some Quran daily, for me its before bed. It doesnt matter how much you read but what you're gaining from it. Legit i read like 3 to 4 pages- sure it may take me longer to finish a surah, but its a lot better than just rushing through.

    Read the hadith and Sunnah; this is great as well; dont overwhelm urself tho lol

    Other advice: be nicer to ppl, listen to ur mum and dad, be more patient. Stop arguing when u know ur right, basically this:

    As for world events, id say make sure ur not reading biased news sites( from both sides!)

    Maybe we should avoid slandering a fellow muslim: if its true what NAK did then thats very obvs a bad thing. But what if its not true? I really hope its not because i was starting to like his lectures tbh
