Narrated Abu Hurairah (RA): The Prophet (saw) said: “Avoid the seven great destrictive sinds.” They (the people) asked, “O Allah’s Messenger! 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 Riba’ (usury, interest)
  5. To eat up the property of an orphan
  6. To show one’s back to the enemy and fleeing from the battlefield at the time of fighting
  7. To accuse chaste women who never even think of anything thoughing their chastity and they are good believers.” (Sahih Bukhari, Vol. 8 Hadith No. 840)

And Allah says:

“If you avoid the great sins which you are forbidden to do, We shall remit from you your (small) sins, and admit you to a Noble Entrance (i.e. Paradise). [5:31]
