The Islamic 12 Steps

1. We admitted that we were powerless over our addiction and our lives have become unmanageable.

2. We came to believe that Allah could and would restore us to sanity.

3. We made a decision to submit our will to the will of Allah.

4. We made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves.

5. We admitted to Allah and to ourselves the exact nature of our wrongs.

6. Asking Allah for right guidance, we became willing and open for change, ready to have Allah remove our defects of character.

7. We humbly ask Allah to remove our shortcomings.

8. We made a list of persons we have harmed and became willing to make amends to them all.

9. We made direct amends to such people wherever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others.

10. We continued to take personal inventory and when we were wrong promptly admitted it.

11. We sought through Salaat (prayer) and Iqraa (reading and studying) to improve our understanding of Taqwa (Consciousness of Allah)and Ihsan (although we can't see Allah, he can see us.)

12. Having increased our level of Iman (faith) and Taqwa (Consciousness of Allah), as a result of working these steps, we carried this message to addicts and began practicing these principles in all our affairs.
