Haraam is an Arabic term meaning "sinful". In Islam it is used to refer to any act that displeases or angers God. Acts that are haraam are typically prohibited in religious texts and is the highest status of prohibition given to anything that would result in sin when a Muslim commits it. A milder ruling than haraam is "makruh", which means "disliked". Islam teaches that a haraam (sin) is recorded by an angel on your left shoulder.
