Avoid the major sins


The major sins are those acts which have been forbidden by Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala in the Holy Qur’an and by His Messenger, Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam in the Sunnah.

Therefore, Allah the Almighty has guaranteed Paradise to those who avoid the major sins. It is very important for a Mu’min (believer) to avoid these types of sins, since they carry a lot of punishment.

According to a Hadith of the Holy Prophet Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam, there are seven major sins (kaba’ir). Anyone who commits these sins will be punished in the Hereafter unless there is true repentance. In a hadith, the Holy Prophet Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam says, “Avoid the seven noxious things”, and after saying this, the Holy Prophet Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam mentions them, “associating anything with Allah, magic, killing a person without a just reason, consuming the property of an orphan, fleeing from battle when the army is advancing and slandering chaste women.” (Bukhari and Muslim)

Among the mentioned sins, committing shirk (associating partners with Allah) is the most punishable act. According to the Qur’an, a person who commits shirk will not be forgiven and will remain in Hell forever.

There are also many kinds of other sins that are highly punishable like gambling, consuming intoxicants, lying, stealing and committing suicide. But there are also many sins that we commit everyday without knowing that these sins are punishable as well, since they displease Allah the Almighty. The following are some of these kinds of sins which we don’t pay much attention to:

1. Disobeying our parents

2. Giving false testimony

3. Engaging in bribery

4. Cursing others.
The Holy Prophet Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam said, “Abusing a Muslim is evil and fighting him is disbelief.” (Sahih Al-Bukhari).

5. Harming neighbours.
According to a Hadith, the Holy Prophet Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam said, “A person who is not safe from his neighbour’s mischief will not enter Paradise.” (Sahih Al- Bukhari).

6. Men wearing silk and gold.
The Holy Prophet Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam said, “Men who wear silk and gold will have no portion (of heaven) in the Hereafter.” (Sahih Muslim).

7. Not praying in congregation and praying by yourself without an excuse.
The Holy Prophet Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam said, “Whoever hears the call to prayer and doesn’t come in prayer, there is no prayer for him except for the one who had a valid excuse.” (Al-Bukhari).

8. Spying on Muslims.

9. Believing in soothsayers, psychics and astrologers.
The Holy Prophet Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam said, “Whoever goes to a fortune teller and asks him about something will not have his prayer accepted for forty nights.” (Sahih Al-Bukhari).
