Avoid the seven great destructive sins
Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet (pbh) said, "Avoid the seven great destructive sins." They (the people!) asked, "O Allah's Apostle! What are they?" He said,
" (1) To join partners in worship with Allah;
(2) to practice sorcery;
(3) to kill the life which Allah has forbidden except for a just cause (according to Islamic law);
(4) to eat up usury (Riba),
(5) to eat up the property of an orphan;
(6) to give one's back to the enemy and fleeing (running away /
escaping) from the battle-field at the time of fighting
(7) and to accuse chaste women who never even think of anything touching chastity and are good believers."
'Abdullah b. Amr reported Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: The whole world is a provision, and the best
object of benefit of the world is the pious woman.
