The usual sources of sins


It is narrated from Imam Sadeq (AS) who said: The typical cases which lead the human being to rebel against Divine Commands and commit sins against Allah (SWT) are summarized in six cases; (of course there are other cases but the following ones are more usual) [1].

  1. Love of the world
  2. Love of the position and being in control
  3. Love of food and eating
  4. Having excessive sexual desire towards women
  5. Love of sleep (for example does not/cannot/not willing to wake up for Dawn Salaat)
  6. Loving comfort

The common word in all the above cases is “love”; which means having very strong/deep/excessive/abnormal feeling and affection (being smitten) towards someone or something.
