Being a Muslim I will explain you in a Quranic way what Allah say in the Quran about Suicide .Everybody knows it’s a major sin which Allah doesn’t like.
If a Muslim Commits Suicide, will he be in Hell Forever with Never Ending Punishment even if he was a Righteous Person?
Suicide is strictly as sinful and detrimental to one’s spiritual journey. However, human beings are said to be liable to committing mistakes, thus, Allah forgives the sins and wipes them out if the individual is truly sincere in repentance, true to the causes and determined in intention.
For those who believed, but eventually disbelieved in Allah in the end, the result seems unambiguously negative. In the Quran, although Allah is said to be ‘the Most Merciful, the Most Kind’ and forgives all sins, the great sin of unbelief is deemed unforgivable.
At last but not the least put your trust on Allah. Tawakul on Allah, because Allah is the best healer .Tell your all problems to Allah .He will surely help you out from any trauma, depression anxiety, whatever problem you faced .
May Allah bless everyone.
