Suicide between depression and evil eye control | The Guardian Nigeria News

Indeed, this could be true: that those who die by suicide do not actually seek to end their lives; they want to end their pain. But to say that it is true, however, is to invest the acts of suicide with happiness; to validate an atrocious act which seeks to deprive the Almighty of his power to give life and to take life and to coat entities which are by themselves contingent with such powers which would claim to make them independent and self-sufficient.

But still it is necessary to advance with the excuse that it is only the author of the suicidal act who could explain “the pleasure” of becoming a victim.

We must bear in mind that there are pleasures in being mad that only mad people know. In other words, among other arguments against it, acts of suicide which are ordinarily considered an unjust complacency to self-destruction, is the only crime I can remember of which the perpetrator is also the victim. It is a crime that seeks to overthrow the will of the Almighty in creation. It is the one mistake in life that you will not regret here but in the hereafter. The perpetrators of acts of suicide would regret their action in the afterlife simply because their action was an affront to the Almighty. In real time, the person who commits suicide says to the Almighty: “You gave me life and I take it away. In a hadith Qudsi, the Almighty alludes to this: “My servant has precipitated My will towards him! This is why I forbid him to enter heaven.

Islam therefore frowns upon suicide simply because it is a permanent solution to a temporary problem. Islam teaches that no matter how bad the situation, if the sun always sets at dusk and rises at dawn, today’s dire situation will eventually pass and become history.

But all of the above applies to those who commit acts of suicide intentionally and voluntarily. It is, for example, the CEO of a large company who ends his life simply because he is unable to account for the millions of money in his custody or the very impressionistic young girl who puts end to her life just because her lover “verifies” the relationship. Individuals like this – those in full control of their faculties always opt for suicide as a solution to earthly challenges that may face eternal damnation. Abu Hurayrah says that the Prophet said, “Whoever throws himself from a mountain and kills himself such a person will be in the fire of hell, throwing himself there forever and ever.

Whoever takes poison and kills himself, his poison will be in his hand and he will sip it in the Fire of Hell forever and ever. Whoever kills himself with a piece of iron, this piece of iron will be in his hand and he will stab himself in the stomach with it in the fire of hell, forever and ever.

Moreover, it was narrated that Jundub ibn ‘Abd-Allah narrated that the Prophet of the Almighty said: “Among those who came before you there was a man who was injured and he panicked, so he took a knife and cut his hand with it, and the blood continued to flow until he died. The Almighty said: “My slave has made haste to bring about his death; I have forbidden paradise, so “whoever (intentionally) kills himself, then surely he will be punished in the Fire of Hell, where he will dwell forever”.

There are many verses in the Quran in which acts of suicide are expressly and unequivocally prohibited. “Say: Come, I will recite what your Lord has forbidden you. [He commands] that you do not associate anything with him, and with parents, good treatment; and do not kill your children out of poverty; We will provide for you and them. And–don’t go near immoralities–what’s out there and what’s hidden.

And don’t kill the soul he defended [to be killed] except by [legal] right. This is how He commanded you to use reason” (Quran 6:151; Quran 17:33; Quran 5:32).
