Major Sins (Al Quran)

User Rating:  / 0

From all the things forbidden to you, if you refrain from the major sins, We shall expiate for your evil deeds and enter you into a place of honour. (Surah An-Nisa: 31)

In this verse, expiation of minor sins is promised if the major sins are avoided. Some people have argued that this verse and numerous others seem to indicate that the person who merely refrains from the major sins must be forgiven even though he perpetrates minor sins and neglects the other duties of Islam.
