Back to book

أَبِی ره قَالَ حَدَّثَنِی سَعْدُ بْنُ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنِ الْحُسَیْنِ بْنِ عَلِیٍّ عَنْ عَبْدِ الْعَزِیزِ الْعَبْدِیِّ عَنْ عُبَیْدِ بْنِ زُرَارَهَ قَالَ: قُلْتُ لِأَبِی عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع أَخْبِرْنِی عَنِ الْکَبَائِرِ قَالَ هِیَ خَمْسٌ وَ هُنَّ مِمَّا أَوْجَبَ اللَّهُ عَزَّ وَ جَلَّ عَلَیْهِنَّ النَّارَ قَالَ اللَّهُ عَزَّ وَ جَلَ إِنَّ اللَّهَ لا یَغْفِرُ أَنْ یُشْرَکَ بِهِ وَ قَالَ إِنَّ الَّذِینَ یَأْکُلُونَ أَمْوالَ الْیَتامی ظُلْماً إِنَّما یَأْکُلُونَ فِی بُطُونِهِمْ ناراً وَ سَیَصْلَوْنَ سَعِیراً وَ قَالَ یا أَیُّهَا الَّذِینَ آمَنُوا إِذا لَقِیتُمُ الَّذِینَ کَفَرُوا زَحْفاً فَلا تُوَلُّوهُمُ الْأَدْبارَ إِلَی آخِرِ الْآیَهِ وَ رَمْیُ الْمُحْصَناتِ الْغافِلاتِ وَ قَتْلُ مُؤْمِنٍ مُتَعَمِّداً عَلَی دِینِهِ.


1. The narrator asked Imam Ja’far Sadiq (a.s.) regarding greater sins. Imam said, “Greater sins are five and Allah makes Hell obligatory for those who commit them as per the words of Allah: Surely Allah does not forgive that anything should be associated with Him. Allah has also said: (As for) those who swallow the property of the orphans unjustly, surely they only swallow fire into their bellies and they shall enter burning fire. Allah has also said: O you who believe! when you meet those who disbelieve marching for war, then turn not your backs to them. nor accuse a chaste woman of adultery nor should you kill a believer purposely.”
