Signs of Weak Imaan

Avoid Major Sins:
Avoid all your sins, open or secret. (Al_Quraan_006.120)
If ye avoid the great (sins), which ye are forbidden, we will remit from you your evil deeds and make you enter at a noble gate. (Al_Quraan_004.031)
(If anyone does, whatever Allah has forbidden us to do; it will be a great sin. While if anyone does, whatever Muhammad has forbidden us to do, other than what is already in Quraan, the majority of that will be small sins.)
Ask Allah to forgive you, in such a way that you will never ever do it again; otherwise it will be like a joke with Allah. May Allah forgive you. AMEEN.
