SUICIDE: THE SUREST WAY TO HELL(Dr. Ahmad Abubakar Mahmud Gumi)


The prophet – Salawatullahi alaihi-
is a mercy for mankind. He said the
way to Paradise is easy for those
that follow his path. He said:
“everybody in my Ummah is going
to enter the paradise except he
who refuses. They said (the
companions): oh messenger of
Allah, who will refuse? He said:
whoever obeys me enter the
paradise and whoever disobeys
me he has indeed refused” Al-
Bukhari.
Despite this ease of entering the
Paradise, those that commit
suicide for whatever reason have
guaranteed for themselves the Hell
Fire forever. Anas said: “ if not for
my hearing the prophet – alaihis
Salam- saying: Do not wish for
death I would wish for it” Al-
Bukhari. People are forbidden to
wish for death talks less of
committing suicide. Islam is a
practicable religion. We are
required to do what we can do and
leave the rest to the Al-Mighty. “So
fear Allah As much As ye can;
listen and obey and spend In
charity for the benefit of your own
soul and those saved from the
covetousness of their own souls,-
They are the ones that achieve
prosperity.” Q64/16.
Whoever therefore will be taken by
fanaticism or sickness or
depression to kill himself, he has
condemned himself to eternity in
the Hell fire, May Allah Save us
from it. Muslim narrated from Abu
Huraira who said: the messenger
of Allah said: “whoever will kill
himself with an iron, then he would
be tormented with his iron in his
hand injuring his belly continuously
in Hell Fire forever. And whoever
will drink poison and then kill
himself, he will continue sipping
the poison in the Hell fire forever.
And whoever fall from a rock then
kills himself, He will continue falling
in the Hell fire forever”.
Whoever, will explode himself with
explosive for whatever reason or
disguise will also continue to be in
his explosion in hellfire forever.
This is what the hadith teaches;
suiciders are tormented with the
same means they employ to kill
themselves.
Today we see young men killing
themselves with explosives in the
name of Jihad yet they never
reflect that those ‘leaders’ that
send them to such adventure never
commit suicide nor send their
children to commit it.
My brothers and sisters, nobody
should deceive you to take your
own life. Real Jihad is fought to
either win or get the martyrdom.
The shahada is gotten when killed
by the enemy action. Allah said:
“Let those Fight In the cause of
Allah who sell the life of This world
for the Hereafter. to Him who
fighteth In the cause of Allah,-
whether He is slain or gets victory –
soon shall we give Him a reward of
great (value). ” Q4/74.
May Allah continue to guide us all
to the straight path. Ameen.
