Turning away from Allah leads to suicide

Do you know that 100 people are committing suicide every hour, and the reason behind that is being away from Allah, thanks Allah for being a Muslim!

 Let us read…

The World Health Organization estimates that about 877,000 people worldwide die by suicide every year. The UN health agency says surveys indicate that for every death by suicide, anywhere from 10-40 suicide attempts are made.

Today, we see that the phenomenon of committing suicide is spreading all over the world and that because people are desperate,pessimistic anddon’t believe in the existence of Allah, so they are suffering from psychological troubles that leads them to suicide.

Allah says in the holy Qur’an about those people: ("But whosoever turns away from My Reminder (i.e. neither believes in this Qur'an nor acts on its orders, etc.) verily, for him is a life of hardship, and we shall raise him up blind on the Day of Resurrection."*he will say :"O my Lord! Why have you raised me up blind, while I had sight (before)."*(Allah) will say: "Like this, Our Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) came unto you, but you disregarded them (i.e. you left them, did not think deeply in them, and you turned away from them), and so this Day, you will be neglected (in the Hell-fire, away from Allah's Mercy)."){Sûrat Tâ-Hâ- verse 124-126}.

That is the destiny of the followers of the Satan but Allah almighty did promise believersto let  them to live a wonderful life with a quiet soul as Allah says: (Whoever works righteousness, whether male or female, while he (or she) is a true believer (of Islamic Monotheism) verily, to him We will give a good life (in this world with respect, contentment and lawful provision), and We shall pay them certainly a reward in proportion to the best of what they used to do (i.e. Paradise in the Hereafter)) {Sûrat An-Nahl-The Bees –verse 96}.

 

Some people believe that money is behind happiness, but that is definitely wrong because many rich people are committing suicide but they are poor in belief! Allah almighty says: (So let not their wealth or their children amaze you (O Muhammad ); in reality Allah's Plan is to punish them with these things in the life of the this world, and that their souls shall depart (die) while they are disbelievers.) {SûratAt-Taubah-(The Repentance – verse 55}.

Below you can find many studies and researches about reasons and consequences of suicide.

Insomnia and suicide

World health organization estimates number of people who commits suicide every year by 877000 man and woman knowing that between every 40 attempts there is only one death. 

Adults who suffer chronic sleep problems may face an increased risk of suicidal behavior, new research indicates.

Scientists found that the more types of sleep disturbances people had, the more likely they were to have thoughts of killing themselves, engage in planning a suicidal act or make a suicide attempt.

"People with two or more sleep symptoms were 2.6 times more likely to report a suicide attempt than those without any insomnia complaints," said the study's leader, Dr. MarcinWojnar, a research fellow at the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Michigan and Associate Professor of Psychiatry at the Department of Psychiatry at the Medical University of Warsaw in Poland.

 

Scientists have consistently linked sleep disturbances to an increased risk of suicidal behavior in people with psychiatric disorders and in adolescents, but it has been unclear whether the association also exists in the general adult population.

"Identifying those at high risk of suicide is important for preventing it and these findings indicate that insomnia may be a modifiable risk factor for suicide in the general population," Wojnar said. "This has implications for public health as the presence of sleep problems should alert doctors to assess such patients for a heightened risk of suicide even if they don't have a psychiatric condition. Our findings also raise the possibility that addressing sleep problems could reduce the risk of suicidal behaviors."

Sleep is a great blessing from Allah almighty who says in the Qur’an: (And among His Signs is the sleep that you take by night and by day, and your seeking of His Bounty. Verily, in that are indeed signs for a people who listen)

{Sûrat Ar-Rûm-The Romans-verse23}.

In the study, the broadest and most rigorously conducted of its kind, scientists examined the relationship over one year between three characteristics of insomnia (difficulty falling asleep, difficulty staying asleep and waking at least two hours earlier than desired) and three suicidal behaviors (suicidal thoughts, planning and attempts) in 5,692 Americans. About 35 percent of those studied reported experiencing at least one type of sleep disturbance in the preceding 12 months.

The most consistent link was seen for early morning awakening, which was related to all suicidal behaviors. People with this problem were twice as likely as those with no sleep problems to have had suicidal thoughts in the preceding 12 months, 2.1 times more likely to have planned suicide and 2.7 times more likely to have tried to kill themselves.

Difficulty falling asleep was a significant predictor of suicidal thoughts and planning. Compared with people who reported no sleep problems, those who had trouble initiating sleep had 1.9 times the risk of suicidal ideas and 2.2 times the risk of planning suicide.

People who had trouble sleeping through the night - waking up nearly every night and taking an hour or more to get back to sleep – were twice as likely to have thought of suicide in the last year and were three times more likely to have attempted it than those who had no sleep problems.

The results were adjusted for several factors known to influence suicide, including substance abuse, depression, anxiety disorder and other mood disorders, as well as chronic medical conditions such as stroke, heart disease, lung disease and cancer. They were also adjusted for the influence of sociodemographic factors such as age, gender, and marital and financial status.

 

How sleep disturbance might increase the risk of suicide is still poorly understood. Scientists have proposed that insufficient sleep may affect cognitive function and lead to poorer judgment, less impulse control and increased hopelessness.

Allah wants us to take an attention about the blessing of sleeping as that blessing is not a grant from the nature but it is a pure grant from Allah Almighty who says in the Qur’an: (And it is He Who makes the night a covering for you, and the sleep (as) repose, and makes the day Nushur (i.e. getting up and going about here and there for daily work, etc. after one's sleep at night or like resurrection after one's death)(Sûrat Al-Furqân-The Criterion){-verse47}.

Did the nature tell us anything about the importance of sleep?

Allah says:) and(whose words can be truer than those of Allah?) {Sûrat An-Nisâ’- The Women - verse122}.

Stress and pressures are behind suicide of US soliders

After a 15-month study of mental health issues in the U.S. Army, it released a report on drug abuse, suicides, and other problems

In an interview with NPR's Robert Siegel, Gen. Peter W. Chiarelli, the Vice Chief of Staff of the Army, said that, while multiple deployments certainly contribute to those issues, there are many other causes.

"I think it's a function of many, many things," he said. "I think that the two prolonged wars we're fighting have caused stressors to occur in the force, but I don't think they can be divorced from the other stressors that soldiers are under, including family and professional problems.

 

According to Chiarelli, the Army has to change the culture on bases in the U.S., as soldiers continue to fight two wars overseas, acknowledging that is a tall order.

Also, according to the latest information released by the US Army reveals that last year (2009) American soldiers attempted suicide at the rate of about

5/day. There were 160 successful suicides last year and during June the rate was 1/day. Military research has reported that one in 10 Iraq veterans may develop a severe case of PTSD.

Researchers say In A report issued by the US Army,: “simply stated, we are often more dangerous to ourselves than the enemy” It went on to say that commanders have failed to identify and monitor soldiers prone to risk taking behavior and as a result suicides among soldier have soared. There were 250 recommendations in the recent report and the Army has already implanted 240 of them.

While these are positive things done to provide good mental health care, they won’t prevent PTSD and sadly it won’t eliminate suicides.

Researchers say: “we aren’t able to prevent the increasing number of Americans being killed by IEDs. War is hell and soldiers get killed. We train them the best way that we know how but inevitably soldiers die when there is a war. Maybe one soldier, despite the best training available isn’t quite as good in a combat zone as another one. Some may be able to know when to zigrather than zag . Some have better instincts than others and that may make them more likely to survive."

Here we have to think deeply, did any one hear about committing suicide in Muslims’ army?

Indeed no, because Muslims have a faith, and they fight for a purpose and they target the victory or the martyrdom.

Accelerating increase in numbers of suicides in America

Suicide isranking 11th among causes of death in the United States, accounting for more than 31,000 deaths each year. John McIntosh, a professor of psychology at IU South Bend and an expert in suicide prevention, said that many common assumptions about suicide are inaccurate, including how often it occurs, who dies of suicide, signs of risk for suicidal behavior, and the myth of the suicide note. He says that suicide is nearly twice as common as homicide, killing one person every 16.7 minutes in the U.S. It is the third leading cause of death among young people. McIntosh estimates, based on an average of six people being closely connected to the victim, over 4.5 million people in the U.S. (1 in 65) have lost a loved one to suicide.

Old, not young, and men, not women, make up the greatest numbers. Although suicide ranks higher as a cause of death for young people, the number of older adults who die from suicide is significantly higher than the number of young people who kill themselves. According to the latest data, adults over age 65 accounted for 16.7 percent of suicides in the U.S. whereas young people aged 15 to 24 accounted for 12.7 percent, even though older adults represented a smaller portion of the population. With respect to gender, there were four male deaths by suicide for every female death. However, women are more likely to attempt suicide than men.

One of these attempts to committing suicide was done by an American husband who shot all of his family (wife and 5 children) because he lost his job and he left a message saying that he did it because he and his wife believe that terminating life of the family is better than letting children to be with strangers.

                

Look at people who are away from Allah almighty how they look to life!!If they believe in Allah they would not do such terrible action, Allah says: (And kill not your children for fear of poverty. We provide for them and for you. Surely, the killing of them is a great sin.){Sûrat Al-Isrâ’-(The Journey by Night)-verse31} also He says: (Verily, Allah is the All-Provider, Owner of Power, and the Most Strong.){SûratAdh-Dhâriyât -The Winds that Scatter –verse 58}

Also,look  at ProphetYa'qub (Jacob) who lost his lovely sonYûsuf(Joseph)and what did he say about that situation in the Qur’an as Allah almighty says on the tongue of Ya'qub: ("O my sons! Go you and enquire about Yusuf (Joseph) and his brother, and never give up hope of Allah's Mercy. Certainly no one despairs of Allah's Mercy, except the people who disbelieve."){SûratYûsuf-Prophet Joseph-verse87], here Allah says that only disbelievers who despairs of Allah’s mercy. 

Committing suicide on internet

Suicide has become chillingly familiar. After forging a pact with strangers over the Internet, young Japanese get together to carry out a carefully planned task -- suicide.

Just as others may use the Web to plan a vacation or perhaps find a date, some people are turning to it to form death pacts. They trade tips on which rooftops are the best to jump from, which over-the-counter drugs are the most lethal.

  Officials say suicide pacts have been made over the Internet since at least the late 1990s and been reported everywhere from Guam to the Netherlands.

But in Japan, where the suicide rate is among the industrialized world's highest, officials are worried about a spate of such deaths.

Alarmed, some politicians are suggesting suicide sites on the Web be regulated or shut down.

"I do wonder if these suicide sites should be left as they are," Education Minister Atsuko Toyama said. "Is it right to neglect the dissemination of information that invites people to kill themselves?"

Regulation doesn't sit well with many experts, however.

"Allowing suicidal people to communicate their problems over the Net is not the issue," said Yoshitomo Takahashi, professor of behavioral science at the National Defense Medical College Research Institute.


Yoshitomo Takahashi said authorities should focus their resources on suicide prevention rather than trying to crack down on Internet sites.

"The problem in Japan is that there are more sites where people are exchanging suicide methods, looking for partners, than there are sites devoted to prevention," he said.

KazutakaNakamizo, spokesman for the telecommunication ministry's bureau that supervises electronic communications, said a causal link would have to be proved between a site and a specific suicide.

"Many of these sites actually exist to try and dissuade potential victims," he said. "We can't shut down all of them."

The National Police Agency has yet to compile any nationwide statistics on Internet-related suicides because discussing a death wish is not against the law -- it's only illegal to be an accomplice to a suicide.

China's suicide rate is the highest

China has one of the highest suicide rates in the world, particularly among rural women, an expert on suicide prevention said.

Yang Fude, vice-president of Beijing Hui Long Guan Hospital, said China is the only country where suicides among women outnumber men.

"It is also one of the few countries where rural suicides outnumber urban suicides," he said on World Suicide Prevention Day.

Recent statistics show more than 287,000 people end their own lives every year on the Chinese mainland.

Stress and depression cause 70 to 80 percent of suicides in urban areas, where many of those afflicted jump off buildings, according to data released by the Beijing Suicide Research and Prevention Center.

Half of the suicides on the mainland are of women in rural areas, who commonly drink pesticide to end their lives.

More than 58 percent of suicides by females and 27 percent of attempts in rural areas used pesticides.

Though suicide ranks fifth after cerebrovascular diseases (such as a stroke), bronchitis, chronic emphysema, liver cancer and pneumonia, it is the leading cause of death for people aged between 15 and 34.

A two-year survey by researchers at Peking University found over 20 percent of 140,000 high-school students interviewed said they had considered committing suicide. And 6.5 percent of the students surveyed said they had made plans to kill themselves.

"Compared with Western countries, suicide in China is an escape from immediate problems and not related to mental issues as much," Yang said.

"Here suicides are more often spur of the moment."

Yang called for more attention to be paid to potential suicides of young women in rural areas and senior citizens in urban areas.

"As the nation ages, more elderly people are left at home with psychological and physical problems," Yang said.

 

The central government of china has gradually realized suicide is becoming a public health issue that happens to all groups of people.

Currently, the country has just 19 professional suicide intervention institutes registered nationwide. These provide depression hot lines staffed by nurses, depression-awareness campaigns and psychiatrists in emergency rooms.

Research has been launched to investigate the reasons for young people committing suicide.

The treatment from the holy Qur’an 

Allah Almighty told us about the reason as He Almighty says: (Allah says in the Qur’an about people who are away from Him): ("But whosoever turns away from My Reminder (i.e. neither believes in this Qur'an nor acts on its orders, etc.) verily, for him is a life of hardship, and we shall raise him up blind on the Day of Resurrection."){SûratTâ-Hâ.-verse 124}.

But most researchers confirm that the reason behind committing suicide is losing hope and lack of enough warnings from doing that terrible action. Allah advise us in many verses to trust Him as he Almighty says: ("And why should we not put our trust in Allah while He indeed has guided us our ways){Sûrat Ibrâhîm– verse 12}and He Almighty asserts  to warning us from killing ourselves by saying: (And do not kill yourselves. Surely, Allah is Most Merciful to you. *And whoever commits that through aggression and injustice, We shall cast him into the Fire, and that is easy for Allah.){Sûrat An-Nisâ’-(The Women)-verse 29-30}.

Thanks Allah for the blessing of Islam
