Although the book was written in sjns same style and wording used by the early Muslim scholars, the translators, in turn, have nothing but to assimilate, paraphrase and then translate in a simple English structure. Therefore, we are indebted to our translators: Shehab Mahmud AI-Qastawi Great appreciation is due to our editor, Jeewan Chanicka under whose guidance and supervision the subject matter took form. Our gratitude goes to friends, associates, and professors for their valuable advice and help and for many useful things we have learnt from them.

In truth, the benefit yielded from this book as a spiritual sermon began before it was sent to the printer’s as it puts before our eyes the abode, which we are going to. Thanks are due to Him for concealing my faults and sins.

Major sins

May Allah bless the Messenger, Muhammed and give him peace upon whom Allah revealed the surah of Qaf. I introduce this book Major sins written by Imam Dhahabi in another form.


As I verified the text, documented 1 the hadiths and maxims, and elaborated on the difficult words. Thus, it is better to keep on reading this book day and night alone and aloud. You have to bear in mind that what you view in this world is either good or bad, clear or vague, a lust followed by sorrow or sins followed by gloom.

Therefore, you have to reject a perishable joy or lust, a binding condemnity, an inevitable sorrow, and a grievous affliction. Judge yourself before being judged by Allah the Lord of the universe. Remember that the one who will be prosperous, is the one who washes away the filth of his sins by repentance while repentance is available, awaked and gets out from the place of sins to the fort of guidance before repentance and apology are of no avail.

May Allah safeguard us with His sleepless eyes and keep us away from faults and sins for He is the All-Hearing, the Nearest. Dhahabi I did not criticize or verify the narratives and maxims mentioned in the book which contradict clear sacred texts.

Al-Dhahabi – Wikipedia

It is sufficient to refer only to the authentic texts and leave others aside. He was born in A. He moved to Cairo and visited many countries. Before he died, he became blind.

He was Hafiz, scholar of Hadith, and historian. He died in A.

Major sins are defined as what is forbidden by Allah and His Messenger in the Qur’an and the Sunnah in addition to what is narrated on the authority of early Muslims.

Allah, the Most high, promises whoever avoids the major sins to expiate his minor sins. Allah, the Almighty says, Hfye but eschew the most heinous of the things which ye are forbidden to do, we shall remit your evil deeds, and admit you to a gate of great honour. Scholars of Sacred knowledge are of different opinions about the number of the major sins. It is argued that they are only seven owing to the Prophet’s pbuh saying, “Avoid the seven heinous sins: That is a good point of view because enumeration is not intended in the Hadith.

As a matter of fact, any sin entailing either a threat of punishment in the Hereafter explicitly mentioned by the Qur’an or Hadith, a prescribed legal penalty Haddor being accursed by Allah or His Messenger pbuh is called a major sin. We have to bear in mind that some major sins are most heinous than another.

This is because the Prophet pbuh has enlisted Shirk worshipping others with Allah though a polytheist will suffer eternal torture in Fire and will never be forgiven. Vhahabi, the Almighty, says, Allah forgiveth not the sin of joining other gods with Him, but He forgiveth whom He pleaseth other sins than. It is of two kinds: This is the greatest shirk mentioned by Allah, the Most High, the Almighty, says, Allah forgiveth not the sin of joining other gods with Him; but He forgiveth whom He pleaseth other sins than this; one who joins other gods with Allah hath strayed far, far away from the right.


It is being absolutely certain that whoever ascribes associates to Allah and dies in such a state is one of Hell’s inhabitants, just as whoever believes in Allah and dies as a believer is one of the inhabitants of Paradise, even if be should be punished first. The Prophet pbuh said, “Shall I tell you of the worst major sins? Worshipping others with Allah, majoe disrespect to parents, giving a false statement, and testifying to the truth of a falsehood.

Allah, the Almighty will say when recompensing the mankind for their deeds: Go to those whom you majr off to in the world to see how they could recompense you. If anyone associates somebody with Me, in any way, I reject him and his act of associating. If he opened it before the seller he will be stoned with it in his face.

He gains nothing but the people’s inquiry about what fills his purse, nothing more. Thus, the one who shows off dhahabii good works will have no value but the people’s saying that he did good and he will not be rewarded in the Hereafter.

Having smelt its fragrance, and seen palaces and blessings therein, they will hear a call saying “Take them away, it is not for them. They will call upon Allah, “0 Lord were we entered into the Hell-Fire before seeing what You have prepared for Your Friends, it would have been better. When you were alone you defied Me with grievous sins, but when you meet people you showed off in good works, You only respected people not Me, You only refrain from sine for their sake.

Hence, today, I will severely torment you in addition to depriving you from My bountiful reward 4 It was related that a man asked the Messenger of Allah pbuh “How can I be redeemed? It’s a Qudsi Hadith. Beware of ostentation, it is the lesser shirk polytheism ; On the Day of Judgment, the ostentatious will be called at the presence of all creatures by four names: O Ostentatious, O traitors, O corrupt, O loser; what you did is wasted and your reward is nullified. We will not reward you, go and get your reward from whomever you acted to deceive?

To do something for their sake is shirk polytheism.

But sincerity is to be aware of them. Maojr us be away from them and forgive us. We ordained for the children of Israel that if anyone slew a person -unless it be for murder ‘or for spreading mischief in the land -it would be as if he slew the whole people.
