In Islamic transcriptions, sin is defined as an act which goes against Almighty Allah. We know that all human being commit sin, no one is perfect. Sin is something to be avoided as these actions are fun and pleasing for a second but afterward, these sins have serious consequences. They not only harm us but distract us from the purposes and aims of our life as well.
Almighty Allah and Holy Prophet (PBUH) have told us about various sins which can erase all our good deeds. They are considered as destructive ones or major sins that can’t be forgiven easily but through repentance. As Allah says in Holy Quran that,
But indeed, I am the Perpetual Forgiver of whoever repents and believes and does righteousness and then continues in guidance. (Surah Taha, verse 82)
Here are a few Quranic verses Holy Prophet (PBUH) has told us about which can be recited if you are in seek of forgiveness for your major sins from Almighty Allah.
