A:

What is the ruling with regards to suicide?

Suicide is absolutely haraam in the Sharia. It is a grave sin and totally prohibited. Under no curcumstance is a person allowed to take his or her own life in Sharia. The Holy Quraan clearly prohibits this in Surah Nisa, Verse 29. You could refer to the Tafaseer of this verse for further clarification.
