On this site there is an essay entitled “Weakness of Faith,
which gives a detailed description of the weakness of faith that many people
suffer, and explains the causes and the remedy. We advise you to read it.
Here is the link:


There follow two pieces of advice from major scholars, in
addition to the above, summing up what is required on your part: 

1 – We advise you to read Qur’aan a great deal, listen to its
recitation and ponder the meanings of what you read and listen to, as much
as you can. If you find anything difficult to understand then ask the
scholars in your country or write to other Sunni scholars for advice. 

We also advise you to remember Allaah a great deal (dhikr)
with the dhikrs narrated in the saheeh ahaadeeth, such as “Laa ilaaha
ill-Allaah (there is no god except Allaah)”, “Subhaan-Allaah
wa’l-hamdu Lillaah wa laa ilaaha ill-Allaah wa Allaahu akbar (Glory be
to Allaah, praise be to Allaah, there is no god except Allaah and Allaah is
Most Great)”, and so on. For more information on this see al-Kalim
al-Tayyib by Ibn Taymiyah; al-Waabil al-Sayyib by Ibn al-Qayyim;
Riyaadh al-Saaliheen [available in English]; al-Adhkaar
al-Nawawiyyah by Imaam al-Nawawi, and so on. 

Remembering Allaah (dhikr) increases faith and brings peace
of mind. Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning): 

“verily, in the remembrance of Allaah do hearts find rest”

[al-Ra’d 13:28] 

Regularly perform acts of worship such as prayer, fasting and
the other pillars of Islam, whilst hoping for the mercy of Allaah and
putting your trust in Him in all your affairs. Allaah says (interpretation
of the meaning): 

“The believers are only those who, when Allaah is
mentioned, feel a fear in their hearts and when His Verses (this Qur’aan)
are recited unto them, they (i.e. the Verses) increase their Faith; and they
put their trust in their Lord (Alone);

Who perform As-Salaah (Iqaamat as Salaah) and spend out
of that We have provided them.

It is they who are the believers in truth. For them are
grades of dignity with their Lord, and forgiveness and a generous provision
(Paradise).” [al-Anfaal 8:2]

2 – Faith is also increased by obeying Allaah, and it
decreases when one disobeys Him. So adhere to doing that which Allaah has
enjoined such as performing the prayers on time in congregation in the
mosque, praying zakaah willingly to purify yourself of sin and show
compassion towards the poor and needy, sitting with good and righteous
people so that they will help you to apply sharee’ah and guide you to that
which will bring you happiness in this world and in the Hereafter.

 Avoid the followers of bid’ah and sinners, lest they tempt
you and weaken your resolve to do good.

 Do a lot of voluntary good actions, turn to Allaah, and ask
Him for strength.

 If you do that, Allaah will increase you in faith and you
will make up for lost time, and Allaah will increase you in goodness and
steadfastness in adhering to Islam.
