The Quran about avoidance

In the name of God, the Gracious, the Merciful

The meaning of any guide is the right action plan. The person and social relations are quite complex. In this regard, only the Creator has the right to establish “instructions”, which contributes to the maximum “longevity”.

One of the important points in the Quran is the prescriptions calling for the avoidance from unnecessary things.

If you avoid the major sins which you are forbidden, We will remove from you your lesser sins and admit you to a noble entrance. (4:31)


The Creator in the Prescription calls unacceptable things differently. In one of them God keeps us from sin.

So whatever thing you have been given – it is but [for] enjoyment of the worldly life.

But what is with God is better and more lasting

 for those who have believed and upon their Lord rely

And those who avoid the major sins and excessiveness, and when they are angry, they forgive (42:36-37)

And to Allah belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is in the earth – that He may recompense those who do evil with what they have done and recompense those who do good with the best – Those who avoid the major sins and excessiveness, only [committing] slight ones. Indeed, your Lord is vast in forgiveness!

He was most knowing of you when He produced you from the earth and when you were fetuses in the wombs of your mothers. So do not claim yourselves to be pure; He is most knowing of those who circumspect! (53:31-32)


As we understand, sin is a general concept, and along with caution, the Quran shows specific situations that should be avoided.

O you who have believed! Indeed, substances that cover the mind, gambling, stone alters and divining arrows are but abomination from the work of the disobedient. So avoid it that you may be successful! (5:90)


People like to build all sorts of hypotheses. This is normal, but up to a certain limit. Any thoughts should be compared with the Word of God and then you can be insured against an error. The main thing is to remember that assumptions can also act like a sin.

O you who have believed! Avoid much assumption. Indeed, some assumption is sin. And do not spy or backbite each other. Would one of you like to eat the flesh of his brother when dead? You would detest it. Beware of God! Indeed, God is Accepting of repentance and Merciful! (49:12)


The main mission of all prophets was to fight against idolatry. Our Creator made Abraham an example for believers. This is what he asked the Lord for.

When Ibrahim (Abraham) said,

“My Lord, make this city secure and keep me and my sons away from worshipping idols. (14:35)]

And since the times of Adam and Abraham this attitude has not changed and will not change until the Day of Debt.

That is to whoever honors the ordinances of God – it is best for him in the sight of his Lord.

And permitted to you are the grazing livestock, except what is recited to you. So avoid the abomination of idols and avoid falsity in conversations. (22:30)


Polytheism necessarily brings transgression among people. Lawlessness reigns where there is no triumph of the prescriptions of the Creator. All the messengers came with a warning about avoidance from transgression.

nd We certainly sent into every headship a messenger, that they serve God and avoid transgression. And among them were those whom God guided, and among them were those upon whom error was decreed. So proceed through the earth and observe how was the end of the deniers! (16:36)


Faith to God and the Quran, the fulfilment of the prescriptions should lead to the rejection of corruption, bribes and other negative manifestations in society. As a result, in such a country the time of a harmonious society will inevitably come, and on the Day of Debt the refusal of transgression will be appreciated.

But those who have avoided transgression, lest they serve it, and turned back to God – for them are good tidings. So give good tidings to My servants. (39:17)
