Allah is the one who decides where His slaves will go, either paradise or hellfire, and what we can do is exercise our best following His guidance, but to His is the final word of where we will go. Suicide is not Kufr, and who commits suicide is still under the mercy of Allah. You can make dua(supplication) for who committed suicide so that may Allah ...

Yes it is. Allah mentions in the Quran, the people for whom funeral is not allowed: وَلَا تُصَلِّ عَلَىٰ أَحَدٍ مِّنْهُم مَّاتَ أَبَدًا وَلَا تَقُمْ عَلَىٰ قَبْرِهِ ۖ إِنَّهُمْ كَفَرُوا بِاللَّهِ وَرَسُولِهِ وَمَاتُوا وَهُمْ فَاسِقُونَ And do not pray over any of them who has died - ever - or stand at his grave. Indeed, they disbelieved in Allah and His ...

The most important reason is that human being cannot put himself in place of God. Means there are some functions which only God is permitted to do not human. And about this issue God tells us that He gives life and he takes life, see this verses in Quran: "He gives life and causes death, and to Him you will be returned."(Surat Yūnus,verse56) "... ...

Surely it's not suicide. In Islam our intention and our tries are what we decide and the result is decided by Allah. So if you intend to dive and die it counts as suicide, but if you know the risk and dive for fun and adventure then it is not. Everything has a risk but the percentage is just different; in an air plane you have safety in 99% of flights; in ...

It really doesn't make a big difference whether you follow Islam secretly or not when it comes to act of worship. Unless you really are afraid of being harmed or even killed by non-Muslims if caught. When your heart is clearly following Islam and inside of you, you reject kufr or shirk then that should be acceptable even if you were in situation where ...

Nothing extends or reduces one's lifespan, regardless. This is the opinion that scholars mostly agree upon that when one's time is up, it will not be delayed, as Prophet Nūh ﷺ told his people: يَغْفِرْ لَكُم مِّن ذُنُوبِكُمْ وَيُؤَخِّرْكُمْ إِلَىٰ أَجَلٍ مُّسَمًّى إِنَّ أَجَلَ اللَّهِ إِذَا جَاءَ لَا يُؤَخَّرُ لَوْ كُنتُمْ تَعْلَمُونَ Allah will ...

Respect of parents (kindness to them) is excepted only when it would lead to shirk: And We have enjoined upon man goodness to parents. But if they endeavor to make you associate with Me that of which you have no knowledge, do not obey them. To Me is your return, and I will inform you about what you used to do. 29:8 Furthermore, there is nothing in ...

Suicide bombing is haraam due to following reasons: surity of death by own arms not by enemies arms like sucide bombing.... in case of sahaba and early muslims, when they entered kafirs army with a risk of death they never did killed by themselves but were killed by their enemies. in that case their was a chance of survival as sahaba or early muslims can be ...

Suicide bombing is an "act of desperation" where death is certain for the bomber. He may not eliminate his intended target but he will certainly perish. Sahaba took "great risks upon themselves" in certain situations but ultimately it was the enemy who killed them no matter what the odds. The almighty grants martyrdom, we are not allowed to take martyrdom ...

Actually even if the child knows something about how bad is what he does it will not face him to punishment in the sense of tortures at his death, in Barzakh, in the Judgment day and in the Hereafter. By child here I mean before becoming Islamically mature, so the reason is obvious, there is no intellectual power so would be no task, the child is still ...

4:29, And do not kill yourselves [or one another]. Indeed, Allaah is to you ever Merciful True its on you and it does not affect the people around you, and it's your own choice, but what is your purpose in life? Why did god create us? 51:56 And I did not create the jinn and mankind except to worship Me. Our mission in life is not to fulfill our desires ...

So what will happen to her? This question is out of the knowledge humans may answer and is a kind of question like: Which are the (kinds of) things that only Allah knows about and no human can safely give answer about it? None can safely say what Allah will do or not because none of us has knowledge beyond what Allah has told us via his prophets() and ...

Assalamu alaikum I'm so sorry to hear about the extreme suffering of your loved one 💔 and I pray that Allah makes it easy for him while taking away his pain and anguish. Ameen. In no instance whatsoever is suicide allowed in Islam In fact in any trial we go through as a Muslim, however painful, we should seek refuge with Allah and bear patience. There's a ...

Suicide is a major sin. However it is not Kufr \ Shirk. While the suicidee has done an act that deserves punishment, his fate is upon Allah and it is not necessary that he will go to Jahannum: he can be forgiven through the mercy of Allah: إن الله لا يغفر أن يشرك به ويغفر ما دون ذلك لمن يشاء Indeed, Allah does not forgive association with Him, but He ...

As @Butarek Hd responded, humans are not accountable for mental insanity. That is beyond their control. As far as common anxiety, depression, etc - they evidently fall under trials and tribulations of this world. As Allah (SWT) states in the Quran: "And We will surely test you with something of fear and hunger and a loss of wealth and lives and fruits, ...

First of all, suicide is definitely not allowed in Islam: The Prophet (ﷺ) said, "Whoever swears by a religion other than Islam, is, as he says; and whoever commits suicide with something, will be punished with the same thing in the (Hell) Fire; and cursing a believer is like murdering him; and whoever accuses a believer of disbelief, then it is as if he ...

NO. Committing suicide is a major sin according to Quran and Hadith. Paradise will be prohibited for those who commit suicide. Jundub ibn Abdullah (Ra) narrated that the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said: "'A man among those who came before you was wounded. He panicked and took a knife and cut his hand, and the bleeding did not stop until he died.' Allah, ...

It's not only halal, but it's highly encouraged. Allah (SWT) states in the Quran: And why should you not eat of that (meat) on which Allah's Name has been pronounced (at the time of slaughtering the animal), while He has explained to you in detail what is forbidden to you, except under compulsion of necessity? 6:119 This is a very known rule in Islam. ...

Essentially user5751924's answer, but expanded with textual sources. You are not referring to suicide per se, well you could be, but the jurisprudence does not define it to be suicide at least to how I understand it. Sourcing from Book 23, Hadith 118, Sahih al-Bukhari, Book of Funerals (Al-Janaa'iz): حَدَّثَنَا أَبُو الْيَمَانِ، أَخْبَرَنَا شُعَيْبٌ، ...

People who kill themselves, supposedly to save some land or some other people, are not martyrs. A martyr is someone who is killed while struggling for a cause, not kills himself for this cause. Killing yourself means voluntarily destroying the creation of Allah swt. It is the only act of war one can make which is not directed at the oumma, some people or ...

Well, if you deliberately work for too long and your preparing yourself to die by doing so, then Yes it is a suicide. But, even though you're not deliberate intending to die by doing so, but still know that it is harmful for your body, then it is Haram(not allowed in Islam) to harm your body that way. May the creator guide us all.

Seeking "adrenaline rush" is far from killing one's self. Both are quite different in the intent (niyyat) as well as method of doing it. The people who do the first is usually known as "adrenaline junkies", whereas the other ones are mentally broken. Those "junkies" calculate the risks and and carry least amount of safety gears, but suicidal people don't. ...

If a person does something haram without knowing that Allah has forbidden it, they will not be held accountable. Allah say in Surah al-Baqarah 2:286= "Allah does not charge a soul except in its capacity. It will have what it has gained, and it will bear what it has earned. "Our Lord, do not impose blame upon us if we have forgotten or erred..." And in ...
