CONCEPT OF SIN

CLASS 5 - LESSON 2
CONCEPT OF SIN
A sin is what a person gets for doing a BAD DEED. Think of everything you do as if it
were being marked by Allah. If you do a good deed you get a blessing (Thawaab),
and if you do a bad deed you get a sin (Gunah).
On the day of Judgement (Qiyamat), Allah will see how many "marks" you have.
Whoever has committed Gunah will be punished for that sin except if Allah has
forgiven it or if you get Shafa’at.
Allah explains to us that whatever sins we commit, whether BIG or (SMALL),
in public or in secret, He knows them all.
He also says that He will forgive those who do Tawbah (ask for forgiveness) and
who do not keep on repeating the Gunah.
Once In the time of our 6th Imam, Imam Ja'far as-Sadiq (a.s.), two men came and
said that they wanted to ask Allah for forgiveness for their sins.
The first man said that he had done 2 very big sins, while the second man said that
he had only done lots of small sins.
Imam Ja’far As-Sadiq (a.s.) told the men that they should bring to him stones, one
for each sin they had committed. BUT the man who had done the two big sins
had to bring two enormous rocks, whilst the other had to bring pebbles.
After a while the two men returned to Imam (a.s.). The man who had done the big
sins was very tired from carrying the large rocks whereas the other one was fine.
I have done 2 BIG
sins!! I have only
done lots of
small sins!
2 BIG rocks
Lots of small pebbles

Imam (a.s.) then told them both to put the stones back in the exact place they had
found them.
The man who had done the big sins found it very tiring and difficult, but finally
managed to put the two rocks in their place.
The man who had done the small sins had picked up so many pebbles from
everywhere that he had no idea where the exact place of each one was and so could
not put them back.
Moral:
It is very difficult to ask Allah for forgiveness for the sins that we think are
small because we forget about them.
It is important that we keep doing Taubah and praying that Allah forgives us for our
sins, He is the Most Forgiving and the Most Merciful.
Discuss in class:
1. Which sins you think people commit often and find very difficult to stop.
2. Ways in which you can help them stop.
