Hadith on Kaba’ir: Three of the worst major sins

Abu Bakrah reported: The Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, said three times, “Shall I not tell you about the worst of major sins?” They said, “Of course, O Messenger of Allah.” The Prophet said, “They are to associate partners with Allah and to be disrespectful to parents.” Then, the Prophet sat up after reclining, saying, “And surely to speak falsely.” The Prophet continued repeating it until we said to ourselves, “Would that he stop!”
