Kabira Gunah (big Sin) is an important concept in Islam. Muslims see sin as anything that goes against the commands of Allah. Islam teaches that sin is a bad act and not a state of being. They believed that Allah weighs an individual’s good deeds and against his or her sins on the Day of Judgement and punishes those individuals whose evil deeds outweigh their good deeds. Gunah lead to Jahannam
The Quran describes these sins (Gunah) throughout the text and demonstrates that some sins are more punishable than others. A clear distinction is made between major (kabira gunah) and minor (sagira gunah) sins (53:31–32), indicating that if an individual stays away from the Big sins, then he/she will be forgiven of the minor sins. Also Islam teaches that God is merciful and individuals can be forgiven of their sins if they repent.
