One who commits suicide be forgiven after death?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Jamia Binoria

Muhtharam Janab Mufthi Sahib,
What I wish to ask is that, if committing suicide is Haram, then is it possible or not, that the one who commits suicide be forgiven after death? Will the Sawab of the Aamals done on his behalf (Eesal e Sawab) reaches him or no?
And whatever the Sadaqa e Jaria he would have done reaches him or no?

الجواب حامدا و مصلیا

Committing suicide is although based on a very grave sin and a Haram act and in Ahadees e Mubaraka there are very severe punishments mentioned for a such a person, but despite all this if he is a Muslim then it is hoped from Allah the Most High that He would forgive him even though after suffering from punishments for a very lengthy period of time. Similarly his own Sadaqa e Jari’a and Isal e Sawab made on behalf of him too would reach him.

Allah knows best.
