Contemplating suicide

Q: Is it still not permissible to end your life if you can’t take it anymore and if the hurting becomes more than bearable? What should you do if that’s the only option left for you?


A: Move away to a place where you will not suffer hurt and injury. To take away life is impermissible under all conditions.

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