salam alaikum i have been a muslim for a awhile now and lately shaiytan how been hitting me hard im not getting all my salats in and end up making them up when i can,i feel the only thing keeping in this deen is allah i used to live in a muslim community and it was so much easier at least i got all my salats in, i know what i need to do and im not doing it and its frustrating me, i read about the last days alot because allah says to remember death and it scare me because i dont want to go to hell but this dunya is tuff especially since alot of the signs i read about are starting to show and it just feels like im failing allah in my duties as a muslim but i wont give up with out a fight.i have tried dhikering but i dont know that many does anyone know some that might help me get shaiytan to ease up a little. salam alaikum brothers and sisters

No one can be perfect 100%, do your best, and ask forgiveness for your shortcoming. And move on, don't so depress with the mistake that already pass. Remember Allah is the best judge, and most forging, most merciful.
The Prophet said: "Do not eat before you are hungry, and stop eating before you are full"
"1/3 of your stomach for food 1/3 for water, 1/3 for air"

walaakum salaams Anas1017.
Everyone has their weakness, and their low time. Thank Allah (SWT) that HE has blessed you to be aware of your shortcomings. The best thing to do is try to make prayer and be a geniune muslim. Your thinking about your imaan is normal. Also no one can say that there imaan is good or even say that they are a good muslim, because only Allah knows.  Cheer up.  Spend more time at the mosque, and surround yourself with some muslims who are active in the community, even if you do not live in a muslm community.  I am sure there there is a mosque in your state. You may need to travel more to get more involved.  I am sure that you will feel better soon. Smile
