Prayer to leave old bad habit


Assalaamu alaikum
Is there any dua I can pray to get rid myself of a very old bad habit and my thoughts be clean.
I would like my answer preferably by Sheikh Hisham please.
JazakAllah khair.


wa alaykum salam, 

Mawlana Shaykh Hisham Kabbani’s teaching is:

“Whenever you hear a whisper, waswasa, or khatira, evil thought comes up, don’t follow it [by thinking about it or envisioning it]. Instead ask refuge in Allah from shaytan by reciting¬†a`udhu billah mina ‘sh-shaytani ‘r-rajeem Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmani ‘r-Raheem.”

This will frustrate shaytan, because it is Dhikrullah, which it hates, but you must be very persistent and consistent for 40 days on this, because shaytan is one of the most persistent in its attacks.
