Our Advice for this youth who’s  inclined to correctness in shaa Allaah:
1โƒฃุฃูˆู„ุงู‹: ุฃู† ูŠุณุฃู„ ุงู„ู„ู‡ ุงู„ุซุจุงุช -ุฏุงุฆู…ู‹ุง- ูˆุงู„ุตูˆุงุจ.

First: that he ask Allaah for firmness (constantly) and for correctness.
2โƒฃุซุงู†ูŠู‹ุง: ุฃู† ูŠููƒุซูุฑ ู…ู† ู‚ุฑุงุกุฉ ุงู„ู‚ุฑุขู† ุจุชุฏุจู‘ูุฑุ› ู„ุฃู†ู‘ูŽ ู‡ูฐุฐุง ุงู„ู‚ุฑุขู† ู„ู‡ ุฃุซุฑ ูƒุจูŠุฑ ุนู„ู‰ ุงู„ู‚ู„ุจุŒ ุฅุฐุง ู‚ุฑุฃู‡ ุงู„ุฅู†ุณุงู† ุจุงู„ุชุฏุจู‘ูุฑ.
Second: That he read the Qurโ€™an in abundance with reflection, because the Qurโ€™an for him will have a great affect on the heart. When the person reads it with reflection .
3โƒฃุซุงู„ุซู‹ุง: ุฃู† ูŠุญุฑุต ุนู„ู‰ูฐ ู…ู„ุงุฒู…ุฉ ุงู„ุทุงุนุงุชุŒ ูˆุฃู„ุง ูŠู…ู„ ุฃูˆ ูŠูƒุณู„ุŒ ูุฅู† ุงู„ู†ุจูŠ ุตู„ู‰ ุงู„ู„ู‡ ุนู„ูŠู‡ ูˆุนู„ู‰ ุขู„ู‡ ูˆุณู„ู… ุงุณุชุนุงุฐ ู…ู† ุงู„ุนุฌุฒ ูˆุงู„ูƒุณู„.
Third: That he restricts himself upon sticking to obedience and donโ€™t lean or become lazy. For indeed the Prophet ุตู„ู‰ ุงู„ู„ู‡ ุนู„ูŠู‡ ูˆ ุนู„ู‰ ุงู“ู„ู‡ ูˆ ุณู„ู… sought refuge from being weak and lazy. 
4โƒฃุฑุงุจุนู‹ุง: ุฃู† ูŠุญุฑุต ุนู„ู‰ูฐ ู…ุตุงุญุจุฉ ุงู„ุฃุฎูŠุงุฑุŒ ูˆูŠุจุชุนุฏ ุนู† ู…ุตุงุญุจุฉ ุงู„ุฃุดุฑุงุฑ.

5โƒฃุฎุงู…ุณู‹ุง: ุฃู† ูŠู†ุตุญ ู†ูุณูŽู‡ ุญูŠู†ู…ุง ุชุคุซู‘ูุฑ ู‡ูฐุฐู‡ ุงู„ู†ูุณ ุนู„ูŠู‡ุ› ูˆุชู‚ูˆู„ ู„ู‡: โ€œุฅู† ุงู„ู…ุฏู‰ ุจุนูŠุฏุŒ ูˆุงู„ุทุฑูŠู‚ูŽ ุทูˆูŠู„โ€ุ› ูู„ูŠู†ุตุญ ู†ูุณู‡ ูˆู„ูŠุซุจูุชุ› ู„ุฃู† ุงู„ุฌู†ุฉ ุญููู‘ูŽุช ุจุงู„ู…ูƒุงุฑู‡ุŒ ูˆุงู„ู†ุงุฑ ุญููู‘ูŽุช ุจุงู„ุดู‡ูˆุงุช.

Fifth: That he advise himself while it has an affect upon him, and that it says to him: โ€ indeed this is long range, the path is longโ€ therefore advising himself for firmness; because the jannah is surrounded with deception and the Naar is surrounded with desires. (1)

(2 )

Six: That he stays far from the companions of evil Even if it was a prior companion; because the evil companionship has an (negative) affect on him and due to this the Prophetุตู„ู‰ ุงู„ู„ู‡ ุนู„ูŠู‡ ูˆ ุณู„ู… said:

โ€ the evil siting is like the blower of bellows (black smith) either he burns your clothing or either you find a smell from him that is offensive.โ€
