    There are so many people in this forum crying for help/feeling low/suicidal...

    Report bad ads?

    ... I wonder what is going on?
    Maybe there could be a collective positive thread?

    Just to start it off:

    4:29
    SAHIH INTERNATIONAL

    .... And do not kill yourselves [or one another]. Indeed, Allah is to you ever Merciful.

    2:195

    SAHIH INTERNATIONAL

    And spend in the way of Allah and do not throw [yourselves] with your [own] hands into destruction [by refraining]. And do good; indeed, Allah loves the doers of good.

    Please add some more, if it may help some of the ones that are feeling low

    It´s a good thing that here is this forum where people whose are in a great pain for some reason can find help and support. Sometimes only sharing your sorrow with others may help.

    We have suffered too much for too long. We will not accept apartheid masked as peace. We will settle for no less than our freedom.

    I often wonder as the posters that seem to be feeling the worst are guests/inactive, so hopefully they got their help

    Narrated Jarir bin Abdullah, "I have given a pledge of allegiance to Allah's Messenger (peace and blessings be upon him) to testify that none has the right to be worshiped but Allah, and Muhammad is His Apostle, to offer prayers perfectly, to pay Zakat, to listen to and obey (Allah and His Prophet's orders), and to give good advice to every Muslim." Sahih al-Bukhari, 2157

    There are many similar Ahadeeth. Alhamdulilah that we have a place here that the Ummah can seek advice and give advice to each other.

    I am so glad I found this forum. I literally did not have anyone to speak to or talk about my problems in an Islamic manner. My brain was going crazy because it genuinely felt like there was a beast in my head contradicting all my normal thoughts.


    I've found Imams to be quite self centred and not have any time for people (I contacted ten and got a response from one!) so was unsure if I should have gone to the local Church (my friend said the Priest makes time for everyone regardless of religion). Had it not been for the good folk of IB, I would probably have killed myself by now.



    Thankfully, I think I am finally on the mend now and I am beginning to start embracing Islam again - I will post about it at some point. But like I said, if it was not for my "help me", "advise me" threads, the few sisters who took me under their wing (via messages online - nothing rudey dudey or fruity may I add), I would have lost my Islam completely by now and quite possibly, my life too.


    Thank you to everyone and people if you are suffering, feel free to post as much as you want. It's called advice and support for a reason.

    There could be a informal Counsel sec like '' Need to talk to relieve you ? '' or something like that where we can give our attention always . This is a GREAT VIRTUE to sooth someone in pain & trouble which Allah likes and rewards much.

    The Prophet then said, "(O people!) Save yourselves from the (Hell) Fire even if with one half of a date fruit (given in charity), and if this is not available, then (save yourselves) by saying a good pleasant friendly word "

    ^ Yes, there should be an Islamic Board Telegram group for emergencies, like if someone is feeling 'suicidal' or needs support ASAP.

    I've suggested a chatroom before but it was dismissed as being more fitna then beneficial. We used to have chatrooms with mods back in early 2000s.

    It would have to be a very organised chat, with active mods, in order to avoid the fitna. And it should only be used for emergencies, because (I think) people who commit suicide, it is mostly an impulsive decision, but I could be wrong. I don't know.

    It's very important to have easy reach out access for people going through such ordeals in their lives. I'm in contact with such a person whom i had to talk out of suicide a number of times. It's not something that they think about once on impulse but rather that they come to it again each time they are going through an episode or after it. They often don't see the point of living nor the worth or value of their lives. They see their lives as empty and taking up space.

    There are dealing with anxiety islamic articles out there with comments filled with people saying how they suffer from it. Here's one example but the theme and thought of suicide is similar for all

    Salaam. I’ve been depressed for about 10 years and I’ve been feeling suicidal for the past 5 or 6 years. I’m 29 and so fed up of living. i wish Allah hadn’t created me. I hate being alive. I think i am will go to hell in the end anyway so why not kill myself now. If Islam didnt say anything about suicide I would have taken my life years ago but unfortunately it is haraam so i must carry on living my pointless, empty life.


    i dont want to marry, i hate myself. i wish i could live alone in alaska and never see another person. im trapped here in the UK. I just hate who i am and i wish Allah had never created me. i’m so tired of living. how on earth am i going to survive another 5 decades of life when i already feel so fed up of it?!


    perhaps Allah will forgive suicide? its not as bad as shirk so maybe Allah will forgive it?

    Asalaamualaykum:

    It is actually good that these people come out with their problems. Imagine if they didnt how lost they would be !

    Maybe its best you give those posts a skip if you feel its getting you down. These people need help and support which is exactly why they writing about it.

    Sster

    Such thoughts are from Shaitan, the enemy of our Parents Adam & Eve and is our enemy about whom Allah has warned us several times in the Noble Quran.

    Just Ponder What Allah said to his beloved Prophet



    Some verses as food for thought in The Love of Allah Ar Rahman

    Noble Quran ''O mankind, what has deceived you concerning your Lord, the Generous ?, Who created you, fashioned you perfectly, and gave you due proportion; ''


    Qudsi Hadith: the prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم said that Allah says:

    Whoever returns to Me, I accept him no matter how far he is;
    and whoever turns away from Me, I approach him and call on him.
    Whoever leaves a sin for my sake, I reward him with many gifts
    and whoever seeks to please Me, I seek to please him.
    Whoever acknowledges My Will and Power in whatever he does, I make the iron bend for his sake.
    My dear people are those who are with Me (i.e. whoever would like to be with Me, let him supplicate to Me and remember Me).
    Whoever thanks Me, I grant him more blessings;
    whoever obeys Me, I raise him and endear him more.
    Whoever disobeys Me, I keep the doors of My Mercy open for him;

    if he returns to Me, I bestow him with My Love since I love those who repent and purify themselves for My Sake.

    If he does not repent, I still
    treat him by putting them in hardship to purify him.

    Whoever favors Me over others, I favor them over others.
    I reward every single good deed ten times over or seven hundred times over to countless times over.
    I count every single bad deed as one unless the person repents and ask for My Forgiveness in which case I forgive even that one.
    I take into account any little good deed and I forgive even major sins.
    My Mercy supersedes My Anger;
    My Tolerance supersedes My Blame;
    My Forgiveness supersedes My Punishment as I am more merciful with My slaves than a mother with her child.

    Tabarani, and Bayhaqi in Shuab Al Iman

    I do not think we should forbid people from posting about their problems. We should give out reminders, and knowledge about Allah, His commandments, etc.

    The people who are in Hardship love Allah, they want to be with Allah, and I realise perhaps this is the best way to nourish our love for Allah, to make us realise that we need and love Allah.

    Atm, I miss Allah. I pray everyday, but feel as if I am a little far from Allah.

    Good advice helps the Muslims. It helps us all.

    Allah knows best.

    There are so many people in this forum crying for help/feeling low/suicidal...

    Meaning of Shirk according to The Qur'an
    " Worshipping anyone or anything besides Allah " or " distributing anything exclusive to Allah, to anyone or anything else "

    Meaning of Tawheed according to The Qur'an
    Worshipping none but Allah. Affirming whatever is exclusive to Him, Him alone.
