    There is a hadeeth that mentions seven

    Narrated Abu-Huraira (may Allah be pleased with him); ‘The Prophet (SAWS) said: “Avoid the seven great destructive sins.” The people enquired; ‘O Allah’s Messenger! What are they?’ The Prophet (SAWS) said: To join others in worship along with Allah, to practise sorcery, to kill the life that Allah has forbidden except for a just cause (according to Islamic law), to eat up usury, to eat up the orphan’s wealth, to show one’s back to the enemy and fleeing from the battlefield at the time of fighting, and to accuse the chaste women, who never even think of anything touching chastity and are good believers.”

    ( Bukhari )

    Some scholars expanded the list to seventy .

    I myself made a thread on this topic and tried to research but did not find satisfactory answers to why there were seventy major sins and how are they different from minor sins.

    The closest I so far got was that Major sins are those on which punishments are mentioned in Quran and Hadeeth , where as Minor sins are those where punishments are not told.

    I would be happy if anyone can shed some light on this. :o
