What is “ism” in Surah 7:33?


In the translation of the Ayah 33 of Surah 7, where Allah (SWT) mentions the things which are absolutely Haram, Mr. Ghamidi translates the Arabic word
"ism" as "Haq Talfee" (usurping of rights). Most other translators translate it as "sin", such as Maududi, Muhammad Junagarih, and even Sahih International to name a few. Could you please elaborate the basis of why Mr. Ghamidi translates "ism" as infringement of rights, and not sin as other scholars have done so?

Best regards.
