Al-Kaba'r - The Major Sins

Description :

Imam ad-Dhahabi, 'alayhir rahman, wrote al-Kaba'ir (The Major Sins) specifically for a class of readers and is at the forefront of his works. The book is aimed at the general masses with simple language, but appeals to scholars and students alike.

Major Sins: (Page 3) --- The Major Sins are those acts that Allah, Subhanahu wa Ta'ala, and His Messenger, Salla Allahu ta'ala 'alayhi wa Sallam, have forbidden in the Qur'an and Sunnah (tradition 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, Salla Allahu ta'ala 'alayhi wa Sallam.

              << If you avoid the great sins you are forbidden to Commit,
                   We will cancel out your (other) evil deeds for you, and
                    admit you (to Paradise) through a Noble entrance
                                                                                   [an-Nisa'i 4:31]

Thus Allah, Most High, has guaranteed the Garden of Paradise to those who avoid the great sins.

A Story : (Page 19) --- It is reported that a woman of the Children of Israel came to Prophet Moses, Peace be upon him, and said: “O Messenger of Allah, I committed a grave sin but then I repented to ALLAH and asked for his forgiveness. Please pray to ALLAH that he accepts my repentance and forgive my sin. “Prophet Moses, Peace be upon him, asked: “What did you do?” She replied: “Prophet of ALLAH, I committed fornication and later gave birth to a baby boy whom I Killed.” Then the Prophet Moses, Peace be upon him, said: “Go from here, you wicked woman, lest a fire from the Heaven consume all of us because of your monstrous sin!”

There-upon she left his presence broken-hearted.

Then the Arch-Angel Gabriel, Peace be upon him, descended and told Moses: “Moses, why have you turned away a repentant woman? Have you not found anyone worse than her? Moses asked: “Gabriel, Peace be upon him, who could such a one be? “Gabriel said: “The one who abandons his prayer intentionally and persistently.”
