Major Sins In "Islam" And "Hinduism"


In a religious context, Sin is a transgression against divine law. Each culture has its own interpretation of what it means to commit a Sin . While Sins are generally considered actions, any thought, word, or act considered immoral, selfish, shameful, harmful, or alienating might be termed “Sinful”.

Major Sins In Islam

Allah says in the Qur’an:
“If you avoid great sins which you are forbidden, We will expiate from you your (small) sins and cause you to enter an honorable (place of) entering."
(Surah 4, Verse 31)

Therefore, a mukallaf must know which sins are great, so that he/she desists from them. In this way, ALLAH in His mercy and according to His promise, will forgive all his minor sins and mistakes.

1) Associating anything with ALLAH (Shirk)
