Actions Forbidden in Islam | Strictly Haram Things According to Islam

Islam is a complete code of life in which Allah (SWT) mentioned all things which are forbidden and permitted. Those things which are forbidden by Allah (SWT) are known as Haram things that we are not allowed to do. These Haram actions come in major sins that Allah Almighty strictly forbade us from doing them in our lives. Haram is the things which are prohibited in the Quran and the Sunnah. These actions violated your soul.

The major sins are those acts which have been forbidden by Allah in the Quran and by His Messenger (SAW) in the Sunnah, and which have been made clear by the actions of the first righteous generation of Muslims, the Companions of the Prophet (PBUH). Allah Almighty says in Holy Quran: “If you avoid the major (part) of what you have been forbidden (to do), We will cancel out for you your (other) evil deeds and will admit you (to Paradise) with a noble entry.” (Quran, 4:31)

From the above verse of Holy Quran, it is clear that Allah (SWT) has guaranteed the Garden of Paradise to those who avoid the major sins which are forbidden by Him. Allah Almighty says in another verse of Holy Quran: “Those who avoid the greatest of sins and indecencies, and forgive when they are angry.” (Quran, 42:37)

There is one major sin which Allah Almighty will never forgive and that person will live in Hell forever is the Shirk. Allah Almighty says in Holy Quran: “Surely, Allah does not forgive associating anything with Him, and He forgives whatever is other than that to whomever He wills. “ (Quran, 4:48 and 116)
