Answer DA sin is a transgression of the religion commands or the religion laws. The sin is an act or saying of disobedience, intentionally or ignorantly, to God commands and God will. Muslims believe that God, the All-Merciful and the All-Forgiving, allowed his followers to repent when committing a sin. To repent you should admit that you committed a sin, then you should intend not to commit it again, return the rights or the apology to whom is affected by the sin (if any), then you ask God (Allah) for forgiveness. The biggest sin in Islam is setting partners in worship with God (Allah).

Quran says (meaning English translation):

{Verily, Allah forgives not that partners should be set up with him in worship, but He forgives except that (anything else) to whom He pleases, and whoever sets up partners with Allah in worship, he has indeed invented a tremendous sin. (48) }

[Quran, chapter 4, verse 48]

Quran says also:

{ Surely, they have disbelieved who say: "Allah is the Messiah ['Iesa (Jesus)], son of Maryam (Mary)." But the Messiah ['Iesa (Jesus)] said: "O Children of Israel! Worship Allah, my Lord and your Lord." Verily, whosoever sets up partners in worship with Allah, then Allah has forbidden Paradise for him, and the Fire will be his abode. And for the Zalimun (polytheists and wrong-doers) there are no helpers. (72)} [Quran, chapter 4, verse 72]


"Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for SIN IS the transgression of the law." (I John 3:4)

Sin is the breaking of the Ten Commandments. As Paul says:

"...I had not known sin, but BY the law: for I had not known LUST, except the law had said, THOU SHALT NOT COVET." (Rom.7:7)

How did the seven deadly sins become sins?

The "seven deadly sins" have been considered sins since the time God gave his law to the Jewish people.

The became the seven deadly sins in the early Church when the Church was trying to put together a catechetical formula for people to learn about sins. The seven deadly sins are the "root" sins, or categories of sins from which all sins evolve, and even all of them have their root in pride - which is the original sin of Satan and our first parents (as far as we know).
