Repeating Istighfaar and Salawaat and Laa ilaaha illallah is very useful in cleaning the heart from the effect of bad acts and bad thoughts. Long Sojood is also very useful especially during night and when you are alone.

Visiting graveyard especially the graves of your parents and people whom you knew is also very useful for better spirituality.

Reciting Quran with clear voice or listening to Quran recitation is also helpful.

Repeating supplication and seeking from Allah to make your heart more clear is very good, e.g. RABBI ESHRAH LI SADRI WA YASSIR LI AMRI رَبِّ اشرَح لي صَدري ويَسِّر لي أمري



Thank you for your question. To diagnose spiritual traits a person needs to be aware of their actions, attitudes and states and then they need reflect on why they act or feel the way they do.

For this reflection it helps to understand some schemas of the soul and how personality development is viewed in Islam. When a person is aware of something that they would like to improve, the next stage is to seek methods that will facilitate that movement towards the desired outcome.

Sometimes simply being aware and controlling impulsive behaviour is enough to deal with some traits and at other times real life changes are the only way to get rid of persistent problems. The ones that need more work are the traits that are more deeply rooted. There are some fundamental changes a person can make to deal with a host of problems, but the development process is a life long journey, full of successes and failures, progression and regression, remembering and forgetting. At the same time, when meaningful change is achieved it results in coming closer to a truly Islamic personality.

May you always be successful
