Sins That Can Never Be Forgiven In Islam

Islam, no matter how many sins a person may have committed, he or she never becomes unforgivable. Islam is the religion of forgiveness. However, there is one sin that Allah will not forgive. If you are wondering which one, please read on to find out more about it.

A Muslim believes that Allah is one, without partners, offspring, or associates. This fundamental belief in Islam is what is referred to as "tawhid" (the belief in strict monotheism). He is the only one worthy of worship. Therefore, ascribing partners or associates to Allah is considered a great sin that cannot be forgiven. This grave sin is only unforgivable if a person dies without repenting.

Shirk: The Unforgivable sin In Islam

The opposite of tawhid is known as "shirk", or associating partners with Allah. This is commonly referred to as polytheism. Simply put, shirk is the one unforgivable sin in Islam (If one dies without repenting). Associating a partner or others with Allah is considered a rejection of Islam and takes one outside of the faith

This is clearly stated in Quran 4:48

"Verily, Allah forgives not that partners should be set up with him in worship, but He forgives except that (anything else) to whom He pleases".


With or without intending it, one can delve into shirk through a variety of actions such as:

1. Finding your purpose in life from material pursuits, desiring and intending for something else other than Allah.

2. Supplicating, or seeking for help, guidance and protection from others other than Allah.

3. Believing that objects have special "powers" of healing or good luck, even if that object includes Quranic writing or

some other Islamic symbolism.


4. Obeying others over Allah; showing that you are ready to disobey Allah's guidance when it suits you.

5. Engaging in magic, sorcery or fortune telling that attempts to see the unseen or predict future events -- only Allah knows such things.

Learning about shirk may help us to avoid it in all its forms and manifestations. I hope that you have learnt something from this article.
