5 Acts Of Shirk

Acts Of Shirk You Do Not Realise You Are Committing

Shirk In Islamic law, is an impermissible act involving associating partners or rivals with Allah. There are three types of Shirk: the major “shirk”, the minor “shirk” and the hidden “shirk”.

Hence not every one of us understands the sensitivity of this type of sin and whether we are committing it without realising it. Here are some examples:

1. Arguing on Allah’s command

Many of our sisters say that “Hijab is not compulsory, there’s no law that says it…” This is a way of keeping authority over what Allah has ordered and is considered a major “shirk”. 

2. Swearing

It is impermissible to admire things or people in a way that leads to attributing lordship. For example “I swear on my son’s life that I have not committed this crime.” Such attributions are considered as minor “shirk”. 

3. Extreme Admiration

Admiring people to such a point that you offer them love that is due to Allah only. For example, many youngsters admire their favorite pop stars so much that they immerse themselves in their world.  

4. Giving Charity To Gain Praise And Attention

Giving charity to show off instead of doing it for Allah is considered a minor “shirk”. 

5. Associating Allah or His Will To People

Very often Muslims say “If it were not Allah and You, this would have been impossible.”

In this statement, they are already associating the occurrence of the situation with another person, together with Allah, which is a minor form of “shirk”. It is permissible to say it in this way “As Allah wills, and then you will.”

However it is a major “shirk” to solicit the help of a saint to achieve one’s needs.
