My brothers and sisters, sometimes life becomes so difficult and sometimes the challenges in our lives begin to overcome us due to our weakness of some sort Subhana Allah, Allah knows this, people begin to think of the worst. And sometimes people start thinking of suicide. People want to take their lives away, not realizing that by taking the life away, we're not going to solve the problem. Many people who were in greater hardship than you are have come out of it after a year, two years or a few years or a decade, in such a way that they would have never believed to see the success they saw later on. Had they taken their lives earlier, they would have lost out on a lot of goodness. So

00:00:50--> 00:01:52

Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us what great a loss a person who kills himself would actually go through. And this is why in verse number 29 of surah, Nisa, Allah prohibits suicide completely. And Allah subhanho wa Taala says, There is no way that you should ever think of consider or take your life away. Because Allah is far more merciful than what you think. So Allah says, Allah de PUE fusa come in more How can I become Rahim? Don't kill yourselves. Don't take your own lives away. That's a very clear cut verse, verse number 29 of Surah Nisa Why?

Make sure that you have confided in Allah to begin with, he knows your problem, but you keep on praying to Him. And Allah subhanho wa Taala will open your doors. So this was a clear cut verse telling us suicide is prohibited. There is no way you should think about it. No matter how big your problem is, no matter how big your disaster is, there is no scope for this as a Muslim and as a believer, because Allah's mercy is far greater than the

00:02:38--> 00:03:21

problem and the issue that you're going through. If you were to take your life away, you would meet with Allah subhanho wa Taala. While he would be very, very upset or angry, so May Allah make it easy for us. And may Allah subhanho wa Taala help those who are going through challenges. I know, as a human being sometimes people go through so much. A lot of it is connected to how others are making your life difficult. I know this happens, and I know sometimes people think I wish this could end and that's how it starts. And after a while they start thinking well maybe I should take my life away. Remember, that is not an option. There are other ways of resolving the matter. Be strong, be

00:03:21--> 00:03:27

steadfast, be firm, Allah will show you a way. May Allah make it easy for every one of us. I mean
