As Muslims, we are in now way perfect. BUT we do have the potential and opportunity to improve ourselves and leave our sins behind. Here’s a few things we should try to stop (feel free to add comments on other things we should encourage our Muslim brothers and sisters to stop):
SIN: Stop listening to music
Why? >“And of mankind is he who purchases idle talks (i.e. music, singing) to mislead (men) from the path of Allaah…” [Luqmaan 31:6] The scholar of the ummah, Ibn ‘Abbaas (may Allaah be pleased with him) said: this means singing. Mujaahid (may Allaah have mercy on him) said: this means playing the drum (tabl). (Tafseer al-Tabari, 21/40). Al-Hasan al-Basri (may Allaah have mercy on him) said: this aayah was revealed concerning singing and musical instruments (lit. woodwind instruments). (Tafseer Ibn Katheer, 3/451).
SIN: Stop smoking Sheesha
