QUESTION:

Recently I feel as if the quality of my worship has decreased dramatically
and I have picked up some very bad habits. I feel sorrow for my actions and
I wish to repent. I have access to many du'a for repentance, and I plan to
offer them, but I feel like I should do more.
Can fasting be offered as a form of repentence? If should I make my niyyat
to fasts for the porpuse of repenting to Allah , qurbatan lillah?
Also do you have any other recommendations for actions I could take in
order to repent for my action ?


ANSWER:

The feeling of remorse over the sins committed is in itself a form of
Tawbah, In fact, repentance must be accompanied by a firm intention of not
repeating the sins.
Apart from this, there are many duas for Istighfar i.e. repentance.
Even fasting can be one of the acts of repentance.
I request you to do repentace for yourself and for all mu'mineen.
