Pearl of Wisdom

'Abu 'Abdillah (AS) went out on a drizzly night, heading towards the refuge of Bani Sa'ida. So I followed him, when suddenly something fell from him.' He said, 'In the name of Allah, O Allah! Return it back to us.' [He continued], 'I came to him and greeted him, and he asked, 'Are you Mu'alla?' I said, 'Yes, may I be your ransom.' He said, 'Search around with your hands and if you find anything give it to me.' I found pieces of bread, so I extended my hands to give them to him. I was amazed to see a sack of bread on his back. I asked, may I be your ransom! Allow me to carry it for you!' He said, 'No! I deserve [the load] more than you but come with me.' He said, 'We came to the refuge of Bani Sa'ida, where we came across a people who were asleep. He placed one or two loafs of bread under the garment of each and every person until he had come to the last person. We then left.' I said, may I be your ransom, do these people acknowledge the truth [of leadership]?' He said, 'If they did, we would have given them the flour as well.'

Question : #271 Category: Major Sins
Subject: never forgivinning sin
Question: What is the name of that sin that Allah will never forgive us.
Answer: Shirk (polytheism) is the sin which will not be forgiven, as Allah (SWT) says in Quran ("Allah never forgives polytheism and forgives other sins for whom He wants"). Those who die with polytheism will not get forgiveness, but those who leave this major sin and believe in Allah (SWT) and His Prophet (SAWA) will be forgiven if they are sincere in their faith as the Hadeeth says (Islam omits what ever before it)
