How do you form good habits? How do you guard yourself against bad habits that are harmful?

Allah Ta’ala says in the Quran Majeed, “Those who are among the pious believe in Allah and the last Day of Judgment, they command good and forbid evil, and they hasten to do good works.”

It is often difficult to take out time for good deeds when more base passions constantly pull the human soul towards selfish worldly pleasures. The Ikhwan-us-Safa state that “habit is the fifth nature,” but how do you cultivate good habits so that they become second nature?

When a Mumin cultivates virtuous habits according to the guidance of our Awliya’ Kiraam, how does that benefit him in this world and the next?
