“1f any do turn hi; back to them on such a day -unless it be in a stratagem of war, or to retreat to a troop (of his own) he draws on himself the wrath of Allah, and his abode is Hell, -an evil refuge (indeed).” (Al-Anfal: 16)

Beliefs & Practices, Major Sins

Major sins are defined as what is forbidden by Allah and His Messenger in the Qur’an and the Sunnah in addition to what is narrated on the authority of early Muslims. Allah, the Most high, promises whoever avoids the major sins to expiate his minor sins. Allah, the Almighty says,

“If ye (but) eschew the most heinous of the things which ye are forbidden to do, we shall remit your evil

deeds, and admit you to a gate of great honour.” (An-Nisaa :31)

In this text, Allah, the Most High, also promises whoever avoids the major sins to admit him to Paradise.

Breaking Saum becomes permissible only in case of a real need, emergency or danger. When a fast is broken on account of a valid reason qadha of the fast is obligatory. In such cases only qadha is necessary, not Kaffarah.

The following are valid reasons which make permissible the breaking of Saum:

(1) Sudden sickness which endangers one’s life, or which will cause great deterioration of health if the fast is not broken.

(2) When it becomes necessary to take medicine due to having been bitten by a poisonous animal.
