Sahl ibn Sa`d, may Allah be pleased with them, narrated that
The Messenger (may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) :“Beware of the (evil) deeds that are regarded as insignificant, sins, like a people who camped in the bottom of a valley, and one man brought a stick, another man brought a stick, and so on, until they managed to bake their bread. There are some insignificant sins which, once (they accumulate) and a person is questioned about them, they lead to his doom.”
One of the most serious sins that entails the most severe punishment is to despise one's sin without taking into account its consequences in this world and in the Hereafter.
Perhaps one may consider a sin as insignificant, then it may be a reason for depriving him of a grace or it may turn to be an affliction.
The companions of the Prophet, may Allah be pleased with them, did not use to differentiate between the sins out of fearing of Allah, they were watching him in private and in public and did not refrain from mentioning him. Yet, if they failed to mention their Lord for some time in which they do some permissible things, they regret for their loss and ask Allah for forgiveness and repent to Him.
The scholars divided the sins into major and minor ones; so as to arrange this division with provisions but not to belittle some sins and to magnify other sins. The believer sees the sin, no matter how small, as a mountain which will collapse over his head.
Whereas the dissolute sees the great sin as a fly passed over his face and then departed.
Allah Almighty counts the acts of his slaves in a record, the knowledge thereof is with my Lord in a record. My Lord neither errs nor forgets.
On the Day of Resurrection, the slave will be shown the record of all his good deeds and bad deeds. The good doer will wish to increase in the good deeds. However, the evil doer will wish that he ceased from the evil deeds but the regret will be of no avail on that day.
The sins that are expiated with the ablution and prayer and so on are the minor sins. As for the major sins, they are not expiated but with the sincere, repentance and the good deeds, which testify for the validity of the repentance.
Please be informed that the accumulation of the sins takes away the light of the heart, it makes him of those whose hearts are hardened against the remembrance of Allah .
He who wants to have a way out of every distress and relief from every anxiety, let him fear wherever he is, and to repent from his sins as much as possible.
