Sins That Can Be the Cause of Greatest Punishment in Grave

Human beings made mistakes sometimes they knew and sometimes they don’t know how big sins they are committing. There are many reasons for which people will be punished in the grave that could be ignorance of Allah’s commands and His disobedience. Punishment in the grave and in the Hereafter is due to the displeasure and anger of Allah (SWT) towards His slave. Whoever angers Allah Almighty in this world and does not repent, and dies like that, will be punished in the Hereafter by Allah Almighty. Allah Almighty disliked those for most who committed major sins in their life and didn’t repent to Him with the truthful heart.

Major sins are those that are forbidden by Allah (SWT) in the Noble Quran and also by our beloved Prophet Muhammad (SAW) in His sayings. Allah Almighty says in the Holy Quran about major sins in these words: “If you avoid the great sins which you are forbidden to do, We shall remit from you your (small) sins, and admit you to a Noble Entrance (i.e. Paradise)” (Quran, 4:31). No matter how major or minor is the sin Holy Prophet (SAW) warned His Ummah not to commit them. Being a Muslim it is obligatory on us to avoid all kinds of sins and try to do good deeds in this worldly life so that we can live a happily ever in the hereafter that will remain forever.

Major Sins for Punishment in Grave
Below we will discuss some destructive major sins that every one of us should avoid; sadly these sins are very common in this modern era.

1) Shirk is one of the major sins that Allah Almighty disliked the most and its eternity in the Hellfire. Allah Almighty will never forgive those who commit shirk until he/she repents to Allah (SWT) and gives up on shirk. Allah Almighty says in the Holy Quran: “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,”(Quran, 4:48). Shirk is one of the causes of punishment in the grave its evidence could be found in the hadith of Zayd ibn Thaabit (RA) who said: “When the Prophet (PBUH) was in a garden belonging to Banu’l-Najjaar on a mule of his and we were with him, it stumbled and nearly threw him. There he saw some graves, six or five or four. He said: “Who knows the occupants of these graves?” A man said: I do.” He said: “When did these people die?” He said: “They died in shirk.” He said: “This Ummah will be punished in their graves. Were it not that you would not bury one another, I would pray to Allah to make you hear what I hear of the torment in the grave.” Then he turned to us and said: “Seek refuge with Allah from the punishment of Hellfire…” (Muslim)

2) Hypocrisy is also one of the causes of the punishment in the grave. The hypocrites are those who most deserve to be punished in the grave. Allah Almighty says in the Noble Quran: “And among the Bedouins around you, some are hypocrites, and so are some among the people of Al‑Madinah who persist in hypocrisy; you (O Muhammad) know them not, We know them. We shall punish them twice and thereafter they shall be brought back to a great (horrible) torment” (Quran, 9:101).

3) Consuming Riba is also a major sin that Almighty Allah disliked and forbidden. Riba is an increase in wealth and some items. Allah Almighty forbade Riba with all of its types and said in the Holy Quran: “Whereas Allah has permitted trading and forbidden Riba (usury).”(Quran 2:275)

4) Zina (adultery) is the major sin that will not forgivable until he/she who committed it to repent to Allah Almighty with a truthful heart and do not commit it again in his/her life.
5) Missing prayer is considered one of the major sins that will cause of punishment in the grave. On the night of Mairaj two angels showed Holy Prophet (SAW) people who are being punished by smashing a rock in their head for missing three obligatory daily prayers. So pray on time and don’t miss any of your prayers.

6) We must see backbiting as the most discussing thing in our society whether its Men or Women they tend to Gossip and backbite whenever they meet. Backbiting is one of the major sins try to avoid it if you want to not be punished.

The above mentioned were some of the major sins that we all should avoid in our daily life routine. May Almighty Allah help us to do good deeds and save us from the punishment of the grave and the Hell Fire! Ameen

In the name of Allah, most compassionate and most merciful. “From among the signs of the Hour (end of time) are that religious knowledge will be taken away (by the death of religious scholars), ignorance will prevail, drinking of alcoholic drinks, and there will be a prevalence of Zina.” – Prophet (saw) We begin our topic with these words of our beloved Prophet. How true were his words? We live in a world where all these things are prevalent and unfortunately in our Muslim community as well. Many of our Muslim brothers and sisters are trapped in the evil of Zina and it has become a norm for them, as a result they don’t even consider it haram and unlawful. Allah says in holy Quran: Sūrah al-Isrā’, 17:32: “And do not even approach zina, for it is an outrageous act, and an evil way…’’ We are not going into detail about why Zina is unlawful but in this article, you will find the consequences of this sin. How this affects a life of a person physically, mentally, spiritually and so


It’s a sad day for all those who knew Ali Banat, the young man gifted with cancer. Ali Banat was an inspiring Australian Muslim philanthropist whose diagnosis of cancer motivated him to dedicate his life to charity work. “At this point in my life, Alhamdulillah I have been gifted by Allah with cancer throughout my body and I have changed my whole life to helping people,” he said. An Inspiration to Muslim Youth A man of a kind heart was known for his charity work over the past three years. One of his biggest achievements is MATW project, (Muslims Around The World) launched in October 2015 to assist those less fortunate in the poverty-stricken areas of Togo, Africa. He was an inspiration to Muslim youth, dedicating his big fortune to charity work. His organization built mosques and schools for the less fortunate in Africa. May Allah accept it from him! Indeed, to Allah we belong and to Him we shall return. May Allah have mercy on our brother Ali Banat and make it easy


Ali Banat is a sydney born who was diagnosed with Cancer and doctors have given him only 7 months to live. Despite his circumstances, he considers this a gift from Allah. Ali Banat, is a young man who, in his own words, was “gifted” with a stage 4 cancer throughout his body. He was given just a few months to live but took this great test as an opportunity to change his life. Upon receiving this news he immediately sold his business, gave up his lavish lifestyle and prized possessions and began a new mission to give up his Dunya and work for his Akhira. Ali has humbly dedicated the remainder of his life to helping those who are far less fortunate than him and in doing so, set up the charity MATW Project (Muslims Around The World) which has already changed the lives of so many. Being diagnosed with cancer is like death sentence for many. But this is not the way Australian Muslim Ali Ali Banat sees it. For him, the sickness is unquestionably a gift from Allah. “At this point in m
