Islamic scholars have come up with Major and Minor sins based on the teachings of the Quran. In general, scholars separate major sins as those committed against others, while minor ones are those that are just between God and man, and not with another person. However sins of unbelief and shirk (associating partner with God) are considered major. In addition, minor sins are either pre-meditated or by mistake, while major ones are considered to be deliberate. In some sects of Islam, a single major sin will result in a Muslim becoming an unbeliever. This is not the case with orthodox Islam.
    If ye (but) eschew the most heinous of the things which ye are forbidden to do, We shall expel out of you all the evil in you, and admit you to a gate of great honour. Quran 4:31

Question to consider:
Since the Quran states that the person who sins earns hell fire than how come here the Quran is expelling evil without hell fire being a consequence?
