The following is taken from: Asbaab Ziyaadah al-Eemaan wa Nuqsaanih from ash-Shaykh ‘Abd ar-Razzaaq ibn ‘Abdil-Muhsin ibn Hamad al-‘Abbaad

Malikiyyah, Shaytaaniyyah, Sab’iyyah and Baheemiyyah; all sins can be classified under these types.

Malikiyyah are sins committed when one takes upon himself qualities of Lordship, which are not benefiting for him such as:

Majesty

Pride
Domination
Subjugation (controlling)
Highness
Enslavement of people
…and other qualities of this type

Sins belonging to this category are of the most serious type.

As for Shaytaaniyyah sins, it is by resembling Shaytaan in:

Envy
Oppression
Cheating
Hatred
Deception
Plotting evil
Ordering disobedience to Allaah and beautifying it
Prohibiting disobedience to Allaah and censuring (harshly criticising) it
Committing innovations (Bid’ah) in the religion of Allaah
The call to innovations (Bid’ah) and deviation.
…and others of this type

This category is placed second to the first type with respect to its harms, even though its harms are lesser.

Sab’iyyah sins are sins of:

1)Transgression
2)Anger
3)Spilling blood
4)Pouncing upon the weak and incapable
…and others of this type

This gives birth to many types of harms to fellow humans and boldness towards committing oppression and transgression.

As for Baheemiyyah sins, examples of this are:

1)Gluttony (over-indulge in something, usually associated with food)
2)Desire to satisfy lusts of the stomach and genital organs
3)Fornication
4)Adultery
5)Theft
6)Consumption of wealth belonging to orphans
7)Miserliness (being stingy)
8)Avarice (extreme greed of material wealth, i.e. money, phones, jewellery, etc)
9)Cowardice
10)Restlessness
11)Impatience
…and much more besides these

This particular category is where most of the sins are performed by people because of their lack of ability of committing sins of the Sab’iyyah and Malikiyyah type. It is from this category where they enter into the remaining categories, since this leads them to the rest by the reigns (Baheemiyyah sins lead to Sab’iyyah, Shaytaaniyyah and Malikiyyah sins.) Thus, as a result of this category, they enter into the area of Sab’iyyah sins, then Shaytaaniyyah, then finally, towards contesting the Lordship and committing Shirk in the oneness of Allaah.
