I spent the entire day today learning about suicide, as part of some very long training I am doing
I cannot tell you how much my heart aches right now for all the souls who unfortunately we are going to lose today.
I just want say ….
If Allah (swt) forbade you to kill yourself, then know that HE IS GOING to help you come out of whatever incredible pain you are going through. This is the moment of your test, perhaps your greatest test. But along with this test he gave you the strength to overcome your pain. AND YOU CAN HEAL!
This is the moment you prove your love for him, your belief in HIM
This is the moment of trust.
Do you trust HIM(swt)? Then preserve your life.
This life that is NOT solely yours. Because surely others have rights on you. Don’t kill their loved one.
Don’t kill the one your family and friends love. Live to preserve their smile. Live to prove your trust in Allah(swt)
Live to show him, that even when you had no hope, you trusted in him, even when you lost all, you chose to BELIEVE in Him, you chose to BELIEVE in his word.You chose to believe that no matter how far it is, that HE WILL FULFILL His promise and come to your aid
No doubt your pain is immense, it is an incredible burden on you that is crushing you right now, but no matter who you are, what you have done, HE IS WITH YOU! To help you lift this burden His mercy has no bounds.
“Allah does not burden a soul beyond ts capacity” Surah Baqara
Say, “O My servants who have transgressed against themselves [by sinning], do not despair of the mercy of Allah. Indeed, Allah forgives all sins. Indeed, it is He who is the Forgiving, the Merciful.”
Allah, your lord, is always full of immense mercy for you
“And He is with you wheresoever you may be” Surah Hadid
Death won’t take it away, death would bury you in this immense burden of pain for eternity.
He doesn’t hate you and He has not abandoned you. He is always listening and always answering.
You are alive, you are breathing, Listen to your heart, its still beating, without you telling it to. Its beating because Allah(swt) ordered it to continue beating in your chest. Allah, the lord of the worlds, wants you to live. He wants you to continue, to overcome, to rise. He is still giving you a chance to please him with every breath, to earn a place near him with ever second you are alive.
If Allah, the most powerful, the most merciful wants you to live, than ask him for his help in doing what is pleasing to him, ask him for help in living and have no doubt in the help arriving.
Indeed with hardship comes ease, indeed with hardship comes ease”
You are a part of this world, a part of the good in this world. Don’t take that away from us. We need all the khayr you are yet to bring to this world. Even if it seems like you have got nothing ti give today, who knows whose life you are going to save tomorrow.
Use your pain to draw closer to him, break down in front of him.
But don’t break your trust in HIM(swt)
Perhaps it would be this day today, this show of trust, that will win you the pleasure of Allah more than ever. You wanted to end your life but you didn’t ONLY because you trusted him.
And then look forward to when that day comes, when you finally return to HIM
Than instead of him asking you “Why didin’t you trust him?” Why did you lose hope in him? Why wait even longer help?
No be patient, bare this enormous pain and InshaAllah instead of all those questions, you will InshaAllah get to hear the most beautiful and peaceful words
“O reassured soul,
Return to your Lord, well-pleased and pleasing [to Him],
And enter among My [righteous] servants
And enter My Paradise.” Surah Fajr
Seek help, if not for your sake, then for the sake of those whom you love.
Seek help for the sake of Allah(swt)
Millions of people in this world are struggling today not because of food, clothes, money but because of the questions they have and the answers they just can’t find
Even when they find them, they can’t believe in them
They are trying to gather wisdom through the limited understanding of human beings, find answers through the limited knowledge of a human being
We Muslims on the other hand are the people, who know the answers, sometimes even when we haven’t truly understood the question yet. But the hardship of seeking that answer has been taken away from us. Quran is the ease for us, which gives us answers to our questions so we never have to turn the wrong way and suffer the consequenses
Today I saw one of those consequences, a consequence which is perhaps the worst. One where a person takes his/her own life in hopelessness. Thinking this is the answer, This is the solution.This is for the best
In the depth of sadness, when there is no hope left.
We muslims know, that ending our life now is not the easy way, its the way for eternal unhappiness
In the depth of darkness, when there is no sign of hope
We see the light anyways, just from the knowledge we have of his mercy.
