The Classification of Sins into Major & Minor

Surah An-Najm, there is a verse that I want to comment on a little bit. Allah says in the Quran

الَّذِينَ يَجْتَنِبُونَ كَبَائِرَ الْإِثْمِ وَالْفَوَاحِشَ إِلَّا اللَّمَمَ
Those who avoid great sins and shameful deeds, only (falling into) small faults,

the righteous are those who avoid the Kaba-ER avoid the big of the sins and of the evil Deeds, and they don’t have to avoid the إِلَّا اللَّمَمَ , it is allowed a اللَّمَمَ.

so it is as if Allah is categorizing sins in the Quran. Allah is differentiating between sins and Allah is saying that the righteous are those who يَجْتَنِبُونَ كَبَائِرَ الْإِثْمِ وَالْفَوَاحِشَ they avoid kaba-er of the sins and then Allah makes an exception إِلَّا اللَّمَمَ if the righteous commits اللَّمَمَ we’ll translate this in a while that doesn’t negate from them being righteous.
