Tips

  • Recite the Quran and strive to understand its true meaning. If you don’t know Arabic, learn it, but meanwhile, there are many free Quran translations available in most languages.
  • When in doubt about something, ask. Don't be scared to ask your local Imam (Head of Mosque), they are there to help.
  • Start with yourself, and don't think that if everybody else is doing something wrong, you can do it as well.
  • Make yourself a model everybody would want to follow/admire.
  • Remember, Once you are habituated to something it's no more difficult.
  • Take things step by step. Make a list of Dos (daily prayers, being kind with others, etc) and Don'ts (hurting others, being hypocritical, etc) from the teachings of Quran and the life of Prophet Mohammed. Start working on these, when you get habituated with some of these add some more teachings to your life.
  • Before going to bed, list down what acts you performed during your day in the way of Islam. You can make such lists and revisit them to find common actions that have become your habit and you would be able to know which good habits of Islam's teachings have become part of your Life.
