Firstly, May Allah SWT grant ease in your current situation.
It is an open-ended question. To precis it –
I would say that once someone distances or forgets Allah SWT, they in turn forget the Sifath (Attributes) of Allah SWT. When this happens, Shaytaan, will eventually try to breed a Self-God image into those people.
Due to this Self-God image, a person will have no scruples and do anything possible to achieve their desires. Knowing that Shaytaan has become the captain of their hearts – these desires are Haraam desires in itself, not to mention that they will turn to even more Haraam to fulfil this Haraam desire.
Always ponder on the Sifath of Allah SWT. The pondering upon the is Sifath escalates the glorification of Allah SWT and brings us down to earth to understand our own position.
Verily - we all are sinners.
