Are you tired of life?

We passed by the void deck of the next block, we saw broken tiles and a big hole and blood on the floor.

Immediately my habibi said someone must have commited suicide.

Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi raji'un [Arabic: انّا للہ و انّا الیہ راجعون ]

Due to the economic recession, there is a rise of people committing suicide. People loses their jobs, creditors asking for debts, banks calling, family expenses, etc. Many times we all cant take it.

To us muslims, we do not commit suicide as we know life after death, the dwelling will be in hell fire.

We also understand, that in life, these are all trials and tribulations we humans go through in order to rise our ranks in the sight of Allah. We turn to Allah for his help, we pray more that in turn increases our iman (faith) in him. All prophets have been through worst situations and even the four imans are also went through alot in their lives in order to attain the greatness.

Has not Allah (swt) says, and it is possible that you hate something and it is for your good? [surah al baqarah, verse 216]

Allah knows best!

I am so sorry to hear that. This is tramuatic for you to have to see that. My Grandmother committed suicide and inshallah it is a wake-up call to be stronger and come back fully to Islam. Love you!
