SUICIDE & MURDER

 

MURDER

This is the act of killing another person deliberately without any justifiable reason in Islam. Allaah says:

"And do not kill anyone whose killing Allaah has forbidden, except for a just cause".[Q 17:32]

MURDER - Allaah says;

"Because of that We ordained for the Children of Israel that if anyone killed a person not in retaliation of murder, or [and] to spread mischief in the land it would be as if he killed all mankind, and if anyone saved a life, it would be as if he saved the life of all mankind. [Q 5:32]

Narrated Anas bin Malik: The Prophet [peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him] said:

"The biggest of Al-Kabair (the great sins) are

(1) to join others as partners in worship with Allaah,

(2) to murder a human being,

(3) to be undutiful to ones parents

(4) and to make a false statement," or said, "to give a false witness. [Bukhari].

Allaah says:

"And whoever kills a believer intentionally, his recompense is Hell to abide therein; and the wrath and the curse of Allaah are upon him, and a great punishment and a great punishment is prepared for him .[Q 4:93]

 

SUICIDE

This is a situation whereby someone kills himself for whatever reason. This is also not permissible in Islam. Allaah says;

And do not kill yourselves [nor kill one another ].Surely, Allaah is Most Merciful to you".[Q 4:29 ]

SUICIDE - Narrated Jundub: Allaah’s Prophet [peace and blessings of Allah be upon him] said:

"Amongst the nations before you there was a man who got a wound and growing impatient (with its pain), he took a knife and cut his hand with it and the blood did not stop till died. AIlaah said, My slave hurried to bring death upon himself so I have forbidden him (he enter) Paradise.[Bukhari]

Narrated Abu Hurairah: The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said:

"Whoever purposely throws himself from a mountain and kills himself, will be in the (Hell) Fire falling down into it and abiding therein perpetually forever; and whoever drinks poison and kills himself with it; will be carrying his poison in his hand and drinking it in the (Hell) Fire wherein he will abide eternally forever; and whoever kills himself with an iron weapon , will be carrying that weapon in his hand and stabbing his abdomen with it in the (Hell) Fire where in he will abide eternally forever. "[Bukhari]
