I am a Muslim, a very proud muslim. I have always been the strong in faith and following most Islamic practices. I have been fasting since very young, I pray (but this is off and on which needs to stop), don't drink or any of that stuff. I would rate myself a 5/10 on how much of a 'muslim I am' if you wanna phrase it like that. When I was younger, all I would talk about to my friends is of God. My passion for God and the Prophet (PBUH) was unreal. The love for God and Prophet (PBUH) is still very strong ofc but when I sin I know Im sinning and still, I don't do anything to stop it.. e.g. not getting up to pray, etc. It's hard because my family are not very practicing so I used to do fasting by myself and pray by myself and keep it hidden cause they were quite critical on me when I did (don't even ask :/)
HOW DO I RESTORE MY FAITH IN ALLAH (SWT) how do I stop myself from giving into temptations of sinning? How do I become closer to God once again? I love Allah (SWT) I want to show it more. I want to learn more, where do I even begin?
idk I'm just frustrated at the lack of effort I have been making towards my religion... :/
I feel like Im straying from my religion.. what do I do? Watch

You're in the blessed month of Ramadan, perfect opportunity to strengthen your faith.
Pray, fast, read Qur'an and remind yourself why you're doing it. Putting a number on how much of a 'muslim' you are will only bring you negative thoughts. Think positive.

Try doing it little by little. It will take time but that's okay.
Setting reminders on your phone/download an app that reminds you of the salaat times so you don't miss them as much.
Or just reading/listening to a Quran before bed.
You can also try looking online for books to further enhance your knowledge.
Provisions for the Seeker is a very good ahadith book to start off with.
