Increased Levels of Suicide

 

People kill themselves, and mischief prevails all over the world.
(Ibn Kathir, An-Nihaya, vol.1, p. 131)

 


According to the World Health Organization [WHO] reports, suicide cases are on the rise all over the world. A person commits suicide every 40 seconds. But with the verse "... and do not kill yourselves…" (Surat an-Nisa', 4:29), God clearly forbids suicide. According to Islam, it is forbidden to kill oneself, no matter what the reason may be.
