Major sins

(Kaba'ir) are the major sins which are ultimately forgiven. There is only one unforgivable sin and that is the sin of associating anything at all with Allah.

See also: Associate Covering the truth Partner-one who assigns
(Shirk). To associate or join a partner (another reality) with Allah. Shirk is the one unforgivable sin. It is in opposition to the very basis of Islam which is Unity (tawhid).
(Kufr). Misbelief or denial and suppression of the Truth or covering-up of the Truth. Taken negatively misbelief (Kufr) is a belief that will lead to wretchedness. However when taken positively the real kufr is the dissolution of 'I-ness' in the 'I-ness' of Allah. This covering is Annihilation in Allah. It is the guarding of the inner secret which is the Sacred Reality within. "If the reality of the Sufi was to be unveiled he would be worshipped".
