Sin of Suicide
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad(saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
It is strictly prohibited in Islam to take the life of another human being without just reason; including ones own.
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 4 Surah Nisaa verse 29: O ye who believe! Eat not up your property among yourselves in vanities: but let there be amongst you traffic and trade by mutual good-will: nor kill (or destroy) yourselves: for verily Allah hath been to you Most Merciful.
The Messenger of Allah (saws) warned that whoever commits suicide, his punishment will be guaranteed Hell Fire, and he will be tortured in the same manner in which he killed himself.
Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 2.445 Narrated by Thabit bin Ad Dahhak
The Prophet (p.b.u.h) said, "Whoever commits suicide with piece of
iron will be punished with the same piece of iron in the Hell Fire."
Narrated Jundab the Prophet said, "A man was
inflicted with wounds and he committed suicide, and so Allah said: My slave has caused death on himself
hurriedly, so I forbid
Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 2.446 Narrated by Abu Huraira
The Prophet (saws) said, "He who commits suicide by throttling shall keep on throttling himself in the Hell Fire (forever) and he who commits suicide by stabbing himself shall keep on stabbing himself in the Hell-Fire."
Your Statement: then he just laugh and make fun of all this.
If you warn him of the impending punishment of Allah from the Quran and Sunnah, and the brother laughs at the warnings of Truth you are advising him; he obviously does not believe in the warnings of Allah and His Messenger (saws). If he is laughing today; assure him that he will only have regrets, torture, and the everlasting punishment of Hell Fire, if he goes ahead with his threat of suicide!
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your Brother in Islam,
