Benefit: Shaykh ʿAbd al-ʿAzīz Ibn Bāz Concerning Major Sinners and Their Places in the Hereafter
In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy
[Q]: Allāh says in the Qurʾān that He does not forgive that partners are associated in worship alongside him, but he forgives anything less than that (Sūrah al-Nisāʾ, 4:116). He also says He is the most forgiving for whomever repents and believes and does righteous deed (Sūrah Ṭā Hā, 20:82). Is there a clash between these two verses? And what is the meaning of his statement "everything less than shirk (polytheism) for whomever he pleases" in the first ayāh.
