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

Abu Bakrah reported: The Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Shall I not tell you about the worst of major sins? They are three.” They said, “Of course, O Messenger of Allah.” The Prophet said, “They are to associate partners with Allah and to be disobedient to parents.” The Prophet was reclining and he sat up, saying, “And surely to speak falsely.” The Prophet continued to repeat it until we wished he had stopped.
