The Major Sins
--Al-Kaba'r--

The major sins are those acts which have been forbidden by Allah in the Quran and by His Messenger (SAW) in the Sunnah (practise of the Prophet), and which have been made clear by the actions of of the first righteous generation of Muslims, the Companions of the Prophet (SAW).

Allah Most High says in His Glorious Book:
If you avoid the major (part) of what you have been forbidden (to do), We will cancel out for you your (other) evil deeds and will admit you (to Paradise) with a noble entry. (al-Nisa 4:31)
Thus by this verse, Allah Most High has guaranteed the Garden of Paradise to those who avoid the major sins. And Allah Most High also says:
Those who avoid the greatest of sins and indecencies, and forgive when they are angry (al-Shra 42:37) Those who avoid the greatest sins and indecencies, except for oversights, (will find that) surely your Lord is ample in forgiveness. (Al-Najm 53:32)
The Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: "The five [daily] prayers, Friday to Friday, and Ramadan to Ramadan make atonement for what has happened since the previous one when major sins have been avoided." It is therefore very important to determine exactly what the greatest vices, technically called "the major sins" (Kaba'ir), are, in order that Muslims should avoid them.

There is some difference of opinion among scholars in this regard. Some say these major sins are seven, and in support of their position they quote the tradition: "Avoid the seven noxious things"- and after having said this, the propeht (SAW) mentioned them: "associating anything with Allah; magic; killing one whom Allah has declared inviolate without a just case, consuming the property of an orphan, devouring usury, turning back when the army advances, and slandering chaste women who are believers but indiscreet." (Bukhari and Muslim)

'Abdullah ibn 'Abbas said: "Seventy is closer to their number than seven," and indeed that is correct. The above tradition does not limit the major sins to those mentioned in it. Rather, it points to the type of sins which fall into the category of "major." These include those crimes which call for a prescribed punishment (HADD; plural, HUDUD), such as theft, fornication or adultery (ZINA), and murder; those prohibited acts for which a warning of a severe punishment in the Next is given in the Qur'an or the tradition; and also those deeds which are cursed by our Prophet (SAW). These are all major sins.

Of course, there is a gradation among them, since some are more serious than others. We see that the Prophet (SAW) has included SHIRK (associating someone or something with Allah) among them, and from the text of the Qur'an we know that a person who commits SHIRK will not his sin be forgiven and will remain in Hell forever.

Allah Most High says:

al-Hafidh Abee AbdulAllaah Muhammad bin Ahmad bin Uthmaan bin Qayyim Dhahbee



Fatal Sin One
Shirk with Allaah the Exalted



Which is to equalize other things with Allaah [the One that created you], and worship other things besides him such as stones, human beings, the sun, the moon, a prophet, a shaikh, a friend, a star, a king, or other things or human beings.
Allaah the exalted says :
Verily Allaah forgives not, that rivals should be set up with Him in worship but He forgives save that (anything else) to whom He pleases.
And Allaah the Exalted says :
Verily who-so-ever sets up rivals in worship with Allaah, then Allaah has forbidden Paradise for him, and the fire will be his abode.
And Allaah the Exalted says :
Verily! joining others in worship with Allaah is a great wrong indeed.
So, whoever associates anything with the Exalted and dies as a mushrik, he is a permanent adherent of Hell, and he who worships Allaah alone he is a permanent adherent of Paradise even if he is tortured.
The Prophet said : Shall I tell you the fatal sins? Shirk with Allaah......... the hadeeth.
He also said : Avoid the seven fatal sins........ he mentioned shirk as one of them.
He said in another hadeeth : Whoever leaves his Deen kill him. This is authentic hadeeth.

Al-Kabair: The Major Sins



1. Associating partners with Allah (Shirk)

* Great Shirk: worshipping beings other than Allah (proof all over the Qur?an)

* Small Shirk: Riya (acting for show). The Prophet (sallallaahu ?alaihi wa sallam), ?Should I not inform you of that which I fear for you even more than the dangers of Dajjal (Psuedo Messiah)?

The bankrupt from my nation is the one who appears on the Day of Resurrection having performed the prayers, fasted and paid the zakat, but had also abused that person, slandered that person, wrongfully taken the wealth of that person and spilled the blood of that person. These people will take from his good deeds. If his good deeds are thereby exhausted, he will be given their sins and then he will be thrown into the hell-fire.? (Sahih al-Jami 87)

If a person had amount of gold equivalent to Mount Uhud or similar to Mount Uhud and spent it in the Path of Allah, (that spending) would not be accepted from him by Allah until he believes in the pre-ordainment of good and evil. And until he knows that what afflicted him was not going to miss him and what missed him was not going to afflict him. If you were to die with any belief other than that, you would enter the Hellfire.? (Kitab al-Sunnah by Ibn Abu Asi 245. Albani says that its chain is sahih)

60. Arguing or quarrelling for show and not seeking the truth. The Prophet (sallallaahu ?alaihi wa sallam) said, ?Whoever argues in support of something that is wrong and he knows it Allah will be angry with him until he stops.? (Sahih al-Jami 6073)

61. Not allowing excess water to flow to others. The Prophet (sallallaahu ?alaihi wa sallam) said, ?Whoever doesn?t allow the access water or pasture for others will not share in the blessings of Allah on the day of judgment.? (Sahih al-Jami 6436)

62. Not measuring the weights properly (Al-Mutafafifeen: 1-3)

63. Thinking that one is safe from Allah?s planning (Al-Araf: 99)

64. Eating carrion, blood or pork meat (Al-Anam: 145)

65. Continually not performing the Friday prayers without any valid excuse. The Prophet (sallallaahu ?alaihi wa sallam) said, ?If people don?t stop abandoning the Friday Prayers Allah may seal their hearts and they will become heedless.? (Muslim)

66. Harming others by manipulation one?s bequests (4: 12)

67. Being deceitful or deceptive (Fatir: 43)

68. Spying on the Muslims and pointing out their secrets (Al-Qalam: 11)

69. Abusing or reviling anyone of the Companions of the Prophet (sallallaahu ?alaihi wa sallam). The Prophet (sallallaahu ?alaihi wa sallam) said, ?Do not revile my companions for, by the one in whose hands is my soul, if you were to spend in charity a mountain of gold similar to mount Uhud it would not be equal to a handful or a half a handful (or what they have done).? (Sahih al-Jami 7187)

Please make sincere repentance to Allah before as Ali (ra) said, ?Today is deed without reckoning and tomorrow is reckoning without deeds?. Sincere repentance has four conditions :

* Feeling bad for the sin

* Firm commitment in intention not to repeat sin (whether it happens again is not a condition if one tried his best)

* Make repentance to Allah by Du?a and asking or better crying for forgiveness

* If some person has been wronged because of this sin then one needs to make up to this person.

Please make sincere repentance to Allah before as Ali (ra) said, "Today is deed without reckoning and tomorrow is reckoning without deeds". Sincere repentance has four conditions :

Feeling bad for the sin

Firm commitment in intention not to repeat sin (whether it happens again is not a condition if one tried his best)

Make repentance to Allah by Du'a and asking or better crying for forgiveness

If some person has been wronged because of this sin then one needs to make up to this person

The Major Sins
--Al-Kaba'r- -
The major sins are those acts which have been forbidden by Allah in the Quran and by His Messenger (SAW) in the Sunnah (practise of the Prophet), and which have been made clear by the actions of of the first righteous generation of Muslims, the Companions of the Prophet (SAW).

Allah Most High says in His Glorious Book:

If you avoid the major (part) of what you have been forbidden (to do), We will cancel out for you your (other) evil deeds and will admit you (to Paradise) with a noble entry. (al-Nisa 4:31)
Thus by this verse, Allah Most High has guaranteed the Garden of Paradise to those who avoid the major sins. And Allah Most High also says:

Those who avoid the greatest of sins and indecencies, and forgive when they are angry (al-Shra 42:37) Those who avoid the greatest sins and indecencies, except for oversights, (will find that) surely your Lord is ample in forgiveness. (Al-Najm 53:32)
The Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: "The five [daily] prayers, Friday to Friday, and Ramadan to Ramadan make atonement for what has happened since the previous one when major sins have been avoided." It is therefore very important to determine exactly what the greatest vices, technically called "the major sins" (Kaba'ir), are, in order that Muslims should avoid them.

There is some difference of opinion among scholars in this regard. Some say these major sins are seven, and in support of their position they quote the tradition: "Avoid the seven noxious things"- and after having said this, the propeht (SAW) mentioned them: "associating anything with Allah; magic; killing one whom Allah has declared inviolate without a just case, consuming the property of an orphan, devouring usury, turning back when the army advances, and slandering chaste women who are believers but indiscreet." (Bukhari and Muslim)

'Abdullah ibn 'Abbas said: "Seventy is closer to their number than seven," and indeed that is correct. The above tradition does not limit the major sins to those mentioned in it. Rather, it points to the type of sins which fall into the category of "major." These include those crimes which call for a prescribed punishment (HADD; plural, HUDUD), such as theft, fornication or adultery (ZINA), and murder; those prohibited acts for which a warning of a severe punishment in the Next is given in the Qur'an or the tradition; and also those deeds which are cursed by our Prophet (SAW). These are all major sins.

Of course, there is a gradation among them, since some are more serious than others. We see that the Prophet (SAW) has included SHIRK (associating someone or something with Allah) among them, and from the text of the Qur'an we know that a person who commits SHIRK will not his sin be forgiven and will remain in Hell forever.

Allah Most High says:

Surely, Allah does not forgive associating anything with Him, and He forgives whatever is other than that to whomever He wills. (al-Nisa 4:48 and 116)

Great Shirk: worshipping beings other than Allaah (proof all over Qur'ân)

The Prophet (saw), "Should I not inform you of that which I fear for you even more than the dangers of dajjaal? It is the hidden shirk: A person stands to pray and he beautifies his prayer because he sees the people looking at him". (Sahih; Sunan ibn Majah)

Wearing one's clothes too long and pass down the ankles is sign of pride. And Allah hates those who are full of pride. The kings and royalty always have their capes or dress dragging several feet behind them if you noticed. There's a hadith saying there was a man who was full of himself with pride, he used to drag his clothes so far behind as he walked boastfully outside, Allah caused the earth to swallow him up and he continues to sink (in the earth) till day of J-day (i think, correct me if i'm wrong guys).

So two things. One, long clothes and dragging them is part of pride which itself is a sin and can/may lead you to hellfire. 2nd, it is Sunnah to wear trousers above the ankles.

lastly, this applies to men only. Women must cover up according what/how they have been commanded by Allah and His Messenger (saws).

this one seem a bit funny (well atleast what i pictured of the meaning)24. Committing highway robbery (5: 33) is it robbery or does it include the high way. lol
Highway robbery (i think) means those who hide on the path/road and jump travelers and rob them.

It's good to remind people to be kind, but there is different type of kindness. This one talks about reminding others of the kindness YOU did for them. Kind of like rubbing it in on the person. Not only is it bad, but you loose all your deeds for that act as well.

Bro, Jummah is a must for those who are adults. In islam, anyone who has hit puberty is an adult and will be held accountable for his/her deeds. As for those students in schools, they can try asking for that time off to pray Jummah or if they are enough muslims in school, they can do their own jummah at school instead of going to masjid.

Hello,

I'm kinda confused at the "above the ankles" thingie. I can't see how wearing decent length pants would show any pride. We see most women wearing too long "nikabs". They drag them on the dirt and dust. In many public places, people can't but step on their lengthy clothes. How come this is allowed?????

Does it mean that all guys wearing normal-sized pants would go to hell????

They drag them on the dirt and dust. In many public places, people can't but step on their lengthy clothes. How come this is allowed?????

Does it mean that all guys wearing normal-sized pants would go to hell????

S.
I hope this helps.
There are many similar ahaadeeth, which indicate that isbaal is forbidden in general terms, even if the one who does it claims that he is not doing it for the sake of pride and showing off, because that is a means that leads to pride, and because it is a kind of extravagance and exposing clothing to dirt and impurities. But if a person does that with the intention of pride then the matter is more serious and the sin is greater, because the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Whoever allows his garment to drag out of pride, Allaah will not look at him on the Day of Resurrection.” The defining point here is the ankles. The Muslim male is not allowed to let his garments come down below the ankles, because of the ahaadeeth mentioned.
About women dragging her garment:
The warning with regard to isbaal (wearing clothes that come below the ankle) in the case of men does not apply to women, because women and commanded to cover their feet, and it is permitted to them to lengthen their garments by a cubit.
Al-Qaadi ‘Iyaad said:

The scholars are unanimously agreed that this is forbidden to men, not to women.
Al-Nawawi said:

The scholars are unanimously agreed that it is permissible for women to let their garments hang below their ankles (isbaal). Clear permission has been narrated from the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) for them to lower their hems by a cubit.
But in the case of females, they may make their clothes longer so as to cover the feet.
all quoted were taken from this fatwa.

Ok, now I know that Shirk in Islam is not forgiven. So what if one commits one of these major sins knowingly but does NOT repent? They go to hell in your view?

Shirk in Islam is not forgiven if the person dies in that state, it can be forgiven if one repents from it before death overtakes them.

The major sins can be forgiven if Allah wills, and He is the Most Just. Or He can punish the person if He wills. And He is the Most Just.

48. Making statues and pictures
Hi, does that constitute taking pictures with a digital camera of people, or just drawing?

Also, the TV is like animated with pictures.. Is there an Islamic view on that?

63. Feeling secure from Allah's Plan
What does that exactly mean?

There's a difference of opinion, since many people of knowledge say that these images are made up of light. The only time (some say) they may be forbidden is if they were to be printed out - since they would become real images then. And Allah knows best.



What does that exactly mean?

To feel secure from Allah's plan means that you feel secure from His punishment, none of us know our final ending - so we strive and work hard to remain sincere so that we can enter His Mercy and Paradise.

Anyone who feels secure from Allah's plan is indirectly saying that they are sure without a doubt that Allah will forgive them, and no-one knows this except the Lord of the Worlds. So we ask Him for His Mercy, and remain sincere to Him without associating others as partners with Him, and that is the only way we can gain His Mercy and Paradise.

Allah Most High says in His Glorious Book:
If you avoid the major (part) of what you have been forbidden (to do), We will cancel out for you your (other) evil deeds and will admit you (to Paradise) with a noble entry. (al-Nisa 4:31)
Thus by this verse, Allah Most High has guaranteed the Garden of Paradise to those who avoid the major sins. And Allah Most High also says:
Those who avoid the greatest of sins and indecencies, and forgive when they are angry (al-Shra 42:37) Those who avoid the greatest sins and indecencies, except for oversights, (will find that) surely your Lord is ample in forgiveness. (Al-Najm 53:32)
The Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: "The five [daily] prayers, Friday to Friday, and Ramadan to Ramadan make atonement for what has happened since the previous one when major sins have been avoided." It is therefore very important to determine exactly what the greatest vices, technically called "the major sins" (Kaba'ir), are, in order that Muslims should avoid them.

There is some difference of opinion among scholars in this regard. Some say these major sins are seven, and in support of their position they quote the tradition: "Avoid the seven noxious things"- and after having said this, the propeht (SAW) mentioned them: "associating anything with Allah; magic; killing one whom Allah has declared inviolate without a just case, consuming the property of an orphan, devouring usury, turning back when the army advances, and slandering chaste women who are believers but indiscreet." (Bukhari and Muslim)

'Abdullah ibn 'Abbas said: "Seventy is closer to their number than seven," and indeed that is correct. The above tradition does not limit the major sins to those mentioned in it. Rather, it points to the type of sins which fall into the category of "major." These include those crimes which call for a prescribed punishment (HADD; plural, HUDUD), such as theft, fornication or adultery (ZINA), and murder; those prohibited acts for which a warning of a severe punishment in the Next is given in the Qur'an or the tradition; and also those deeds which are cursed by our Prophet (SAW). These are all major sins.

Of course, there is a gradation among them, since some are more serious than others. We see that the Prophet (SAW) has included SHIRK (associating someone or something with Allah) among them, and from the text of the Qur'an we know that a person who commits SHIRK will not his sin be forgiven and will remain in Hell forever.

Allah Most High says:

quick question is it arranged from biggest to smallest. If yes, then would please give me ALL scriptural evidence from your quran as two why sin number 1 is the most grevious sin and anything realted to it.

Thanks

Shirk is the greatest major sin because it involves being associating others along with Allaah in worship. Being thankful to other than Allaah for all the good which He has given us, shirk can also involve rejecting the Messengers' of Allaah since the Messengers of Allaah call against shirk. We'll discuss this issue more in depth insha Allaah.


If someone rejects any Messenger of Allaah, they are rejecting His message. If they are rejecting His Message, they are saying that Allaah has lied and that He doesn't send us a Criterion to judge between what is right and wrong, true and false etc. If someone doesn't accept this, then they are following a way which opposes the law of Allaah.

So because they have rejected Allaah's message, they have also rejected His commandments. Which then means that they would be disobedient to Him without even feeling any guilt that they are transgressing the boundaries which He has set for us. This means that they can do any forms of injustice without feeling that they will return to Allaah and be judged for what they did (and be either rewarded or punished for their faith and actions), so they may persist in these evils to the extent that they cause a great deal of harm to the whole of humanity.



Yet if this person never had commited this shirk, and they had accepted Allaah's Messengers', this would mean they would accept His message, which would mean that they would be far more likely to do good and turn away from evil because they would have the fear of Allaah, love of Allaah, and hope for His reward for their patience and good that they did in this life. They would not be unfair, and as ungrateful to their Lord for all the favours that He has given them. They would obey His commandments, and therefore gain His pleasure, and due to His Mercy - they would enter His reward, the adobe of peace, Allah being pleased with them, and they pleased with Him.

It is they who are the successful.

Thank you for your question.


The hadith of the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) should be read within its historical context. At the time when the message of Islam was sent to mankind, slavery was an established institution. It would not have been practically possible for the Prophet (peace be upon him) to end slavery in one night. What he did was to insist on certain moral values that people had to observe when dealing with their slaves, in addition to requiring certain rulings from every Muslim. Both of these measures aimed at gradually and eventually ending slavery.


The moral value that the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) insisted on when dealing with the slavery issue was the value of equality of humankind. He said on many occasions that all people are equal, whether black or white, man or woman, slave or noble. The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) further instructed, as narrated in various places in the authentic collections of Hadith, that masters should share with their slaves the same food, the same clothing, and even help them with their work [Sahih Al Bukhari] This attitude, by itself, put an end to the worst part of slavery, which was its stratifying and hierarchical view of human beings based on their social status.

Then, the Prophet (peace be upon him) made it the slave’s right to buy his or her freedom, and the community then had an obligation to help him or her. In fact, one of the venues of the required zakah (obligatory annual charity), according to the Qur’an is to free slaves. This meant that one of the obligations of an Islamic government was to buy slaves and free them. The Prophet also forbade selling female slaves who bore their master a child. The master could not sell them and both slave and child would become free after his death. Several Islamic rulings required freeing of slaves as an act of repentance from wrongdoing, such as if a Muslim violated the abstinence that accompanies fasting in Ramadan.


This concept of equality of all was quite a step in the history of humanity that Islam made at that time. Also, when the value of equality was materialized in society at that time, the slave-master relationship became a different relationship altogether.

It must be said, though, that the ideals of Islam faced a lot of resistance from supporters of the social status quo and from people who had financial and other material interests in the system of slavery. However, we ought to differentiate between religion (any religion) and its followers’ practices. Therefore, it took centuries until slavery disappeared from the Muslim world—and the non-Muslim world as well, by the way. This is not due to Islam, because as far as Islam is concerned, if the rulings had been followed and not violated by those in positions of power, slavery would have disappeared much earlier.

Going back to your question, given the above, the master-slave relationship had become sort of a contract for work, in which the slave was getting certain benefits based on his or her work for the master. Therefore, it was considered wrong for the slave to run away and not free him- or herself by compensating the master.

Having said that, I should make it clear that all of the above is history. I mean, slavery is NOT part of the Islamic system of life. Slavery was merely a social fact that preexisted Islam and which had to be eliminated in Islam’s usual gradual and wise manner.
