p25.0 SUICIDE
p25.1 Allah Most High says:
“Do not kill yourselves, for Allah is compassionate towards you. Whoever does so, in transgression and wrongfully, We shall roast in a fire, and that is an easy matter for Allah” (Koran 4:29-30).
p25.2 The Prophet (Allar bless him and give him peace) said:
(1) “Of those before you, there was once a wounded man who could not bear it, so he took a knife and cut his arm, and bled until he died. Allah Most High said, ‘My slave has taken his life before I have, so I forbid him paradise.’ ”
(2) Whoever kills himself with a knife will abide forever in the fire of hell, perpetually stabbing his belly with it. Whoever kills himself with poison will abide forever in the fire of hell, poison in hand, perpetually drinking of it.”
