Prophet Muhammad: The Perfect Family Man

The Unforgivable Sin in Islam

Allah is All-Merciful and Oft-Forgiving. Indeed, He may forgive all sins except for one sin: shirk.

In Islam, shirk is the sin of idolatry or polytheism. i.e. the worship of anyone or anything other than the singular God, or more literally associating partners with Him.

If a person dies in a state of polytheism, every hope for his or her salvation is surely dashed.

The Prophet (peace be upon him) was asked: what is the greater sin , he said: To ascribe partners to Allah even though he created you. (Al-Bukhari)

However, Almighty Allah may forgive every sin, without exception, from a sincere penitent.

One thought on “The Unforgivable Sin in Islam

Silvia Gill

Is shirk an unforgivable sin because Life and Creation are Allah’s glory and he gives it to none other? Something like that as the Jesus Christ in the scriptures of the Church of Latter-day Saints says the same thing. My glory I give to none other. Yes, the same concept.
