Sayyidi wa sanadi Mufti Mohammed Taqi Usmani (Allah preserve and protect him) said,
‘The prescription for an individual’s islah has 3 components,
1. Turning to Allah (inabet illa Allah). This is by repentance from transgressions done in the past and asking assistance in doing good actions in the present and future.
2. Removing one’s self from places, conditions and situations where the likelihood of falling into sinful is possible based on past experience.
3. Developing spiritual strength to resist the temptations of nafs by having a daily routine for remembrance of Allah.
