Major Sins Part 2

Exultation

Allah (Ta’ala) says:

“Verily, he was among his people in joy!” (Qur’an 84: 13)

Allah (Ta’ala) also says:

“They will say, ‘Aforetime, we were afraid [of the punishment of Allah] in the midst of our families.'(Qur’an 52: 26)

And Allah’s saying:

“So, when they forgot [the warning] with which they had been reminded, We opened to them the doors of every [pleasant] thing, until, when they rejoiced in that which they were given. We seized them all of a sudden and they were [then] in despair.” (Qur’an 6: 44)

Despair of Allah’s mercy and security from the plan of Allah

Allah (Ta’ala) says:

“… Certainly no one despairs of Allah’s Mercy except the people who disbelieve.” (Qur’an 12: 87)

“… None feels secure from the Plan of Allah, except the people who are losers.” (Quran 7: 99)

Ibn Mas’ ood (Radiallahu anhu) said: “The greatest of the major sins are associating partners with Allah (in His being attributes and/or worship), feeling secure against the Plan of Allah, despair of Allah’s mercy and despair of Allah’s soothing mercy.”

Ibn ‘Abbas (Radiallahu anhu) was asked: “What are the major sins?” and he answered, “Associating partners with Allah (in His being, attributes, and in the exclusive rights such as worship), feeling secure against Allah’s Plan and the despair of Allah’s soothing mercy.”

Being suspicious of Allah

Allah (Ta’ala) says:

“ ... Moved by wrong suspicions of Allah; the suspicions due to ignorance … “(Qur’an 3: 154)

Allah the Glorious says:

“And that was your assumption, which you assumed about your Lord, it has brought you to ruin … “ (Qur ‘an 41: 23)

And Allah’s saying:

“... who imagine an evil opinion of Allah: on them is a round of evil…” (Quran 48: 6)

It is narrated from Ibn ‘Umar (Radiallahu anhu): “The greatest of major sins is having an evil opinion of Allah.”

Jabir (Radiallahu anhu) related that he heard Allah’s Messenger (Sallallahu alaihi wasallam) saying three days before his death: “See that none of you dies without having good expectations from Allah.”

Ibn Abu ad-Dunya added: “For some people’s wrong assumption about Allah they were brought to their destruction.”

Allah (Ta’ala) said:

“And that was your assumption which you assumed about your Lord. It has brought you to ruin, and you have become among the losers.” (Qur ‘an 41: 23)

Abu Hurayrah (Radiallahu anhu) narrated that the Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wasallam) said: “Allah said, I am to my slaves as he thinks of Me.”

In another version, Ahmad and Ibn Hibban added: “If he assumed good of Me, he will have it, and if he assumed evil (consequence and bad) of Me, he will have it.”

Pride and mischief
Allah says:
“That home of the hereafter [i.e. Paradise], We assign to those who rebel not against truth with pride and oppression in the land nor do mischief by committing crimes…”

Anas (Radiallahu anhu) reported that the Allah’s messanger (Sallallahu alaihi wasalam) said: “None of you will have true Faith until he wishes for his (Muslim) brother what he wishes for himself.”

Abu Muhammad Abdullah ibn Amar ibn al ‘Aas (Radiallahu anhu) narrated that Nabi Sallallahu alaihi wasallam said: ” None of you believes until his desire follows what i have brought.”

ENMITY AND HATRED
Allah says:
” If you differ in anything amongst yourselves, refer it to Allah and His Messanger.”

and Allah says:
“There is for you an excellent example [to follow] in Ibrahim (Alaihis salaam)

Immorality
Allah says:
” Indeed, those who like that immorality-illegal sexual relations, be spread and propagated among those who believe, will have a painful punishment.”

Allah Ta’ala says:
“If they are sincere to Allah and his Messanger, there is no cause for reproach against those who do good.”

Allah’s Messanger (Sallallahu alaihi wasallam) said: “Everyone will be with those whom he loves.”
