Wife committing suicide

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: My wife committed suicide by hanging. Reason is still unknown. However, after her death, my house was searched. My family managed to find 40 taweez in her cupboard and several black limes (Nimbu). Immediately after her death I have seen her thrice in dream. 1. She was sitting with my small daughter. 2. She was standing in a house but she didn’t have eyes. 3. I heard in my dreams that someone is saying that she regret’s this mistake. 4. She want’s to come back and stay with us or some one is leading me to her grave as I hardly visit her grave. Since than I have seen her several times in dreams there are several stories which I came to know about her after her death because of which I go through lot of trauma & depression on daily basis. I have two daughters 5 year and 1 year old. On the last evening of she told me certain things that she has sold some jewellery without my knowledge. She has facebook account and she assumed that she was pregnant again. I told her that wasn’t possible but she was very nervous. Can you please help and advise me on dreams which is not stopping till now and what all does that mean. Her family has booked case on me without understanding the situation. Please advise on my case as I went to almost everyone for a solution but till now didn’t get any helpful reply. I am already going through lot of pressure everyday with pressure, trauma and stress.


A: May Allah forgive her. What has passed cannot be brought back. The wise thing is what you can do for the present and future. It will be good that you contact some experienced righteous aalim or shaikh and ask him to guide you.

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