Recently I have listened to the following lecture series - you may too - I have found it to be very helpful.

Atheism and the Crisis of Faith - Dr. Nazir Khan
Just to add to what I have already written above: You must remember that crisis of faith is part of experiencing and living through faith. Pious, not so pious, practicing, not practicing - everyone experiences doubts (of various levels and types) at some point in their lives. This is normal. Faith is not something static - faith is dynamic - depending on our actions - faith grows and diminishes. It is a life long process.

Therefore, what matters is how you manage your own doubts and other faith issues. From my own experience, increasing your knowledge and prayer (dua) are most helpful. God commanded us to pray:

"Our Lord, let not our hearts deviate after You have guided us. And grant us from Yourself mercy. Indeed, You are the Bestower." Quran 3:8

The most frequent prayer of the Messenger of God, who had the most certainty in faith, was:

“O Turner of the hearts, keep my heart firm upon your religion”.
Self-respect is the fruit of discipline; the sense of dignity grows with the ability to say no to oneself- AJH| Don’t disrespect your life by living aimlessly – set goals and work hard to attain them.
