Is it sin to wish death and commit sucide?
The Answer

Dear Brother / Sister,

In this respect Anas quotes Allah’s Messenger as saying:

The Messenger of Allah said:

"Let none of you wish death because of some trouble visited on you. If he feels compelled to kill himself, let him say this: “O Lord! Let me live if it is good for me, or take my life if it is good for me." ( Bukhari, marda,19)
