Shirk - associating partners with Allaah This is the most serious of all prohibitions, according to the hadeeth narrated by Abu Bakrah, who said: “The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: ‘Shall I not tell you of the most serious of the major sins?’ three times. We said, ‘Of course, O Messenger of Allaah!’ He said, ‘Associating anything in worship with Allaah . . .’” (Agreed upon; see al-Bukhaari, no. 2511, al-Bagha edition). Every other sin may be forgiven by Allaah, apart from shirk, which requires specific repentance, as Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning): “Verily, Allaah forgives not that partners should be set up with Him in worship, but He forgives except that (anything else) to whom He pleases . . .” [al-Nisaa’ 4:48]

In Islam,shirk(Arabic:شرك‎širk) is the sin of practicing idolatry or polytheism, i.e. the deification or worship of anyone or anything besides thesingular God,[1]i.e.Allah. Literally, it means ascribing or the establishment of"partners" placed beside God. It is the vice that is opposed to the virtue of Tawhid(monotheism).
[2]Those who practice shirk are termed mushrikun.[3]Mushrikun(pl. ofmushrik) are those who practiceshirk, which literally means "association" and refers to accepting other gods and divinities alongside the god of the Muslims - Allah (as God's "associates").
[4]InIslamic law shirk as a crime, can just be attributed to Muslims, since only a Muslim is legally responsible not to associate any partner to Allah.
[5]Within Islam,shirkis an unforgivable crime if it remains unpardoned before death: Allah may forgive any sin if one dies in that state except for committing shirk.[2][6]The wordširkcomes from the Arabic rootŠ-R-K(ش ر ك(, with the general meaning of "to share".[7]In the context of the Quran, the particular sense of "sharing as an equal partner" is usually understood, so that poly theism means"attributing a partner to Allah". In the Qur'an,shirkand the related word mušrikūn(مشركون)—those who commit shirk and plot against Islam—often refer to the enemies of Islam (as in verse 9.1–15).QuranIslamic commentators on the Quran have emphasized thatpre-Islamic Arabic idolatry made a number of godlings (most memorably the three goddessesal-Manāt,al-lātandʻUzzā) equal associates of Allah (as the Qur'an discusses in the53rd surat) and the word mushrikūn(singular:mushrik) is often translated into English as"polytheists".TheQuranand what the people ofNuh'scommunity wouldsay in an effort by the idolaters to ignore and mock Nuh."They (idolaters) have said: "You shall not leave your gods nor shall you leave Wadd, norSuwa', norYaghuth, norYa'uqn or Nasr." (Qur'an 71:23) Other forms of shirk include the worship of wealth and other material objects.
This is pointed out in the Qur'an in one of the stories of the Children of Israel, when they took a calf made of goldfor worship,[8]and for which Moses ordered them to repent.Another form of shirk mentioned in the Qur'an is to take scholars of religion, monks, divines, or religious lawyers as Lord(s) in practice by following their doctrines, and/or by following their rulings on what is lawful when it is at variance to the law or doctrines prescribed by Allah's revelation.
