An Infidel Reads About The Koran (9 Islamic views on sin -

Scholar differ as to how many major sins there are. In contrasting major sins with minor sins (al-sagha'ir), the eighth-century Shafi'i scholar Al-Dhahabi found the hadith collections of Sahih al-Bukhari and Muslim ibn al-Hajjaj listed seven major sins, while the tradition from Abd Allah ibn Abbas stated that there were closer to seventy major sins. [20]

The seven major sins in Islam are as follows:[21]

associating anything with Allah (i.e. idolatry -- my comment)
killing one whom Allah has declared inviolate without a just case,
consuming the property of an orphan,
devouring usury,
turning back when the army advances, and
false accusation of chaste women who are believers but indiscreet.
