Allah says in the Glorious Qur’an in Surah An Nisa, 4:31
“If you avoid the ‘Major sins’ which you are forbidden, We will remove from you your lesser sins and admit you to a noble entrance [into Paradise].”
In an authentic narration the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said: “The five [daily] prayers, Friday to Friday, and Ramadhaan to Ramadhaan make atonement for what has happenned 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’(Al Kabaa’ir), are, in order that Muslims should avoid them.
Abdur Raheem Green will make clear what these heinous crimes are against the Lord of the worlds, in this series titled ‘Major Sins’.
