Answered by Ustadh Amjad Tarsin
Question: Assalam alaykum
In the last 7 years I’ve drifted very far from Islam. I want to get back to the religion and live a life where I obey Allah and seek his pleasure and fear Him. When I speak to my parents I speak very harshly, and I have indulged in parties drinking. I don’t know where to begin.
What can I do?
Any advice on the matter would be appreciated thank you
