Stray thoughts

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: Please advise me. I always think that I am a faasiq and my family and other people around (we are in Nigeria) if I see how other Muslims live in other countries which is not possible here. I have once attempted suicide and I am still thinking of it although I am afraid of it, please help me.


A: There is no need to bring these types of stupid thoughts to your mind. Allah Ta`ala appreciates people who are in constraints and who are trying even more than Muslims that are living in an Islamic conducive environment.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
