Evil Deeds that Lead One to Hell


Evil Deeds that Lead One to Hell

    Sheikh al-Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah, may Allah (swt) have mercy
on him, was asked: "What are the deeds of the people of Hell and
what are the deeds of the people of Paradise?" He replied, "The
deeds of the people of Hell are:


* associating partners in worship with Allah (swt)
disbelieving in His Messenger
* kufr (ingratitude,
* hasad (malicious envy)
* lying
* treachery

* oppression and wrongdoing (dhulm)
* promiscuity
* cutting off the ties of kinship
* cowardice at
the time of jihaad
* miserliness
* inconsistency between what
is in one's heart and the face one shows to people
* despairing
of the mercy of Allah (swt)
* feeling secure from the plan of
Allah (swt)
* panicking blindly at the time of crisis
pride and extravagance at the time of plenty
* abandoning one's
duties towards Allah (swt)
* transgressing His limits
violating His sanctity
* fearing a created being instead of the
* showing off
* going against the Qur'an and Sunnah
in word or deed
* obeying a created being in some act of
disobedience to the Creator
* blindly supporting falsehood
mocking the signs of Allah (swt)
* rejecting the truth
withholding knowledge and testimony that should be revealed
witchcraft and magic
* disobeying one's parents
* killing any
soul forbidden by Allah (swt) except for reasons of justice
consuming the wealth of the orphan
* riba (usury)
* desertion
from the battlefield
* slandering the reputation of innocent,
chaste, believing women" (Yaqadhat uli al-I'tibar, p.222)

The Messenger of Allah (saw) mentioned all the sins that
will lead one to Hell. Muslim reports from 'Iyadh bin Himaar that
the Messenger of Allah (saw) said, during a lengthy

"..the people of Hell are five: the weak who lack
the power to (avoid evil); the (carefree) who pursue (everything
irrespective of whether it is good or evil) and who have no concern
for their families or their wealth; the dishonest people whose greed
cannot be concealed even in the case of minor things; and those who
betray you, morning and evening, with regard to your family and your
property. He also mentioned misers, liars and those who are in the
habit of abusing people and using obscene, foul language".
(Muslim in Kitaab al-Jannah wa Sifaat Na'imihaa Baab
as-Sifaat allaatee yu'raf bihaa fid-dunyaa ahl al-Jannah wa ahl
an-Naar, 4/2197 no. 2865)
