I want to start praying but I feel guilty because it has been prayed for many years. What do I do?

00:00:07--> 00:00:39

start immediately. Don't delay. Simple as that. Maybe you haven't prayed for many years very well okay, past is the past. Don't allow your past to dictate your future. Start praying and ask Allah to forgive you and pray extra nephal and Sunnah. And if you are truly sincere, and you have that guilt and regret in your heart, and you make up for the missed prayers, by any way possible, giving charity being kind, praying regularly, then inshallah to Allah Allah will forgive the past because Allah forgives all sins to those who repent.
