Major Sins



"O you who believe! Why say you that which you do not? It is most hateful in the sight of God that you say that which you do not." [61:2-3]

"If you avoid the major (sins) which you are forbidden, We will remit from you your evil deeds and make you enter at a noble gate." [4:31]

"And serve God. Ascribe nothing as partner to Him. Be kind to parents, and to near relatives, and orphans, and the needy, and to the neighbour who is of relative and the neighbour who is not of relative, and the fellow-traveller and the wayfarer and (the slaves) whom your right hands possess. Lo! God loves not such as are proud and boastful, Who hoard their wealth and enjoin avarice on others, and hide that which God has bestowed upon them of His bounty. We prepare a shameful doom for disbelievers, and those who spend their wealth in order to be seen of men, and believe not in God nor the Last Day." [4:36-38]

"Lo! God forgives not that a partner should be ascribed to Him. He forgives except that to whom He will. Whoever ascribes partners to God, he has indeed invented a tremendous sin." [4:48]

"Lo! God pardons not that partners should be ascribed to Him. He pardons all except that to whom He will. Whoso ascribes partners to God has wandered far astray." [4:116]

"O you who believe! You be staunch in justice, witnesses for God, even though it be against yourselves or parents or relatives, whether a rich man or a poor man, for God is nearer to both. So follow not passion lest you lapse; and if you lapse or fall away, then lo! God is ever Informed of what you do." [4:135]

"Say: Come, I will recite to you that which your Lord has made a sacred duty for you: That you ascribe no thing as partner to Him and that you do good to parents, and that you slay not your children because of penury - We provide for you and for them - and that you draw not nigh to lewd things whether open or concealed. And that you slay not the life which God has made sacred, except in the course of justice. This He has commanded you, in order that you may discern. And approach not the wealth of the orphan except with that which is better, till he reach maturity. Give full measure and full weight, in justice. We task not any soul beyond its scope. And if you give your word, do justice to it, even though it be (against) a relative; and fulfil the covenant of God. This He commands you that haply you may remember: This is My straight path, so follow it. Follow not other ways, lest you be parted from His way. This has He ordained for you, that you may ward off (evil)." [6:151-153]

"Lo! We have made the devils protecting friends for those who believe not. And when they do some lewdness they say: We found our fathers doing it and God has enjoined it on us. Say: God, verily, enjoins not lewdness. Tell you concerning God that which you know not ? Say: My Lord enjoins justice. And set your faces upright at every place of worship and call upon Him, making religion pure for Him." [7:27-29]

"Say: My Lord forbids only indecencies, such of them as are apparent and such as are within, and sin and wrongful oppression, and that you associate with God that for which no warrant has been revealed, and that you tell concerning God that which you know not." [7:33]

"Set not up with God any other god lest you sit down reproved, forsaken. Your Lord has decreed, that you worship none except Him, and be kind kindness to parents. If one of them or both of them attain old age with you, say not "Ough" to them nor repulse them, but speak to them a gracious word. And lower to them the wing of submission through mercy, and say: My Lord! Have mercy on them both as they did care for me when I was little. Your Lord is Best Aware of what is in your minds. If you are righteous, then lo! He was ever Forgiving to those who turn (to Him). Give the relative his due, and the needy, and the wayfarer; and squander not in wantonness. Lo! the squanderers were ever brothers of the devils, and the devil was ever ingrate to his Lord. But if you turn away from them, seeking mercy from your Lord, for which you hope, then speak to them a reasonable word. And let not your hand be chained to your neck nor open it with a complete opening, lest you sit down rebuked, denuded. Lo! your Lord for whom He will enlarges and lessons the provision. Lo, He was ever Knower, Seer of His slaves. Slay not your children, fearing a fall to poverty, We shall provide for them and for you. Lo! the slaying of them is great sin. And come not near to adultery. Lo! it is an abomination and an evil way. And slay not the life which God has forbidden except with right. Whoso is slain wrongfully, We have given power to his heir, but let him not commit excess in slaying. Lo! he will be helped. Come not near the wealth of the orphan except with that which is better till he come to strength; and keep the covenant. Lo! of the covenant it will be asked. Fill the measure when you measure, and weigh with a right balance; that is meet, and better in the end. Follow not that whereof you have no knowledge. Lo! the hearing and the sight and the heart - of each of these it will be asked. And walk not in the earth exultant. Lo! you cannot rend the earth, nor can you stretch to the height of the hills. The evil of all that is hateful in the sight of your Lord. This is (part) of that wisdom wherewith your Lord has inspired you (O Mohammed). And set not up with God any other god, lest you be cast into hell, reproved, abandoned." [17:22-39]
