CONCERNING the GHUNÂH-I-KEBÂIR (GRAVE SINS) There are many kinds of grave sins, which are called ghunâh-ikebâir. Seventy-two of them are as follows: 1– Unjust homicide. 2– To commit fornication. 3– Sodomy is harâm in every religion. 4– To drink wine or any other sort of alcoholic beverages. 5– Thieving. 6– To eat or drink narcotics. 7– To lay hands on someone else’s property by using force. That is, to commit extortion. 8– To bear false witness. 9– Without an ’udhr, to eat before other Muslims during the blessed month of Ramadân. 10– Ribâ, i.e. to borrow or lend property or money at an interest. 11– To swear solemnly time and again. 12– To disobey your parents. 13– To cease from making sila-i-rahm to mahram relatives who are sâlih Muslims. (Sila-i-rahm means visiting your close relatives.) 14– In a war, to desert from the battlefield and run away from the enemy. 15– To utilize an orphan’s property without the orphan’s consent. It is stated as follows towards the end of the two hundred and sixty-sixth page (of the tenth edition) of the fifth fascicle of Endless Bliss: “The (orphan’s) executor cannot pay the deceased’s debts with the orphan’s property. Nor can he pay the orphan’s fitra or perform the Qurbân for the orphan (out of the orphan’s property). But the (orphan’s) father can. If the executor becomes needy, he can utilize the orphan’s property, but he cannot donate it to someone else.” 16– Not to use your scales or measures properly. 17– To perform daily five namâzes before or after their (prescribed) times. 18– To hurt your Believer brother’s heart. – 218 –

19– To make a false statement under the pretense of giving a quotation from Rasûlullah ‘sall-Allâhu ’alaihi wa sallam’ although in fact the statement does not belong to the Prophet. 20– To take a bribe. 21– To avoid bearing true witness. 22– Not to pay zakât or ’ushr for your property. 23– When you see a person committing a sin, not to try to dissuade him although you could. 24– To burn an animal alive. 25– After learning (how to read) the Qur’ân ’adhîm-ush-shân’ to forget how to read it. 26– To give up hope of mercy of Allâhu ’adhîm-ush-shân. 27– To betray people’s trust; it makes no difference whether they are Muslims or non-Muslims. 28– To eat pork, which is harâm. 29– To hate and curse any one of Rasûlullah’s Sahâba ‘ridwânullâhi ta’âlâ ’alaihim ajma’în’. 30– To continue eating after being satiated; it is harâm to do so. 31– For a woman to avoid conjugal act with her husband (without any good reason). 32– For a woman to go out to visit an acquaintance without her husband’s permission. 33– To accuse a chaste woman of fornication. 34– Nemîma, i.e. to practise talebearing among Muslims. 35– To show one’s awrat parts to others. [A man’s awrat parts are between their navel and their knees. A woman’s hair, arms and legs also are within her awrat parts.] To look at others’ awrat parts. 36– To eat flesh of an (edible) animal that died (of itself). Such flesh is called ‘lesh’. As well, an (edible) animal that has been killed in a way disagreeable with the way dictated by Islam is called ‘lesh’, (and it is no longer edible.) 37– To commit a breach of trust. 38– To backbite a Muslim. 39– To be jealous. 40– To attribute a partner to Allâhu ’adhîm-ush-shân.
