Living in sin

Question ID: 34557


respected mufti saheb.
i am 37 years old.i have a wife and four children.i am deeni inclined and have a sunnah beard and follow various other sunnah practices.
i have a weakness for money.i have lost alot in my life due to greed and chasing money.
i have stolen and continue to defraud.
i have lost my own business and have since gotten a job.i am in a position where lots of monies pass through daily which i have been helping myself to.
even with this i am unable to support my family.i have difficulty with paying school fees etc and have been stealing to cover up this gap but the hole i am digging is worsened.
i also smoke dagga every evening as i feel it helps me relax.
allaah has given me alot in my life and i am an ungrateful servant to my lord.
my life has changed since i lost my business where i no longer am punctual with salaah.i feel regret when i miss a salaah but sometimes miss salaah intentionally.
i cant remember the last time time i read my quraan or even surah yaseen.
mufti saheb i am lost and in desperate need of upliftment.
what can i do?
i feel as if i am loosing my imaan and feel very spiritually low.

Half your battle is won by realizing your error. Be positive.
Take hold of yourself. Immediately stop stealing.
Reduce all and every un-necessary expenses. Stop smoking. Read at least one Salaat with Jamaat daily then increase.
Read at least 1 Ruku Quraan daily. Do not have bad company.
