“Shirk” The Unforgivable Sin


The greatest sin a person can commit against Allaah is shirk. Unfortunately, a lot of people cannot define what shirk is and how to protect against it. Mostly, they think that shirk is limited to idol worship. Whereas, it is more than that; shirk can be committed by physical acts, including grave worship, tying a black thread around one’s arm/leg etc.

It can be done by speech, e.g. taking oath by other than Allaah, or by elevating someone above Allaah by one’s speech etc. It can also be done by one’s thought or inner feelings like believing that other than Allaah can benefit or harm you; fearing other than Allaah etc.

No matter whatever way it is, Shirk is the number one cause for the people’s deviation from the truth.

{It is those who believe (in the Oneness of Allaah and worship none but Him Alone) and confuse not their Belief with Zulm (wrong, i.e. by worshipping others besides Allaah), for them (only) there is security and they are the guided.} [Surah Al-An`aam (6):82]

{Verily, Allâh forgives not that partners should be set up with him in worship, but He forgives except that (anything else) to whom He pleases, and whoever sets up partners with Allâh in worship, he has indeed invented a tremendous sin. } [Surah Al-Nisaa’ (4):48]

{Verily! Allâh forgives not (the sin of) setting up partners in worship with Him, but He forgives whom he pleases sins other than that, and whoever sets up partners in worship with Allâh, has indeed strayed far away.} [Surah Al-Nisaa’ (4):116]
