Suicide rate is increasing day by day and now it has become an alarming situation. If we consider any human being, we can say it is not easy to take one’s own life. So there must be some genuine reasons to do suicide. Some people will call it a state in which it is easier for a person to die rather than living his/her life.
I saw many people who have money, fame, and all the luxuries of life but record shows they also attempted suicide. Many of you have heard the incident of famous Bollywood Actor Sushant Singh Rajput who had committed suicide but he had millions of followers and fans.
According to WHO, one person dies every 40 seconds due to suicide. Rates varied widely, however, between countries, from 5 suicide deaths per 100 000 to more than 30 per 100 000. While 79% of the world’s suicides occurred in low- and middle-income countries, high-income countries had the highest rate, at 11.5 per 100 000. Nearly three times as many men as women die by suicide in high-income countries, in contrast to low- and middle-income countries, where the rate is more equal.
The weakness of faith in Allah is the major cause of suicide because money and fame can give you a luxurious life but your soul is also thirsty. The only thing which can make your heart relaxed and happy is a strong faith in Allah. There are problems in life and ups and downs are a part of life but suicide is not the solution to any problem in any case.
Depression is also one of the basic reasons for suicide.
In this alarming situation of COVID-19, people are suffering from mental pressure and fear of death which leads to depression and disappointment, people feel helpless and they want to get rid of this situation so they commit suicide. Lack of social support, acute emotional distress, sense of isolation, financial loss are major reasons for suicide in the present situation.
The need of the hour is that we must reach out to our near and dear ones. We must hear our loved ones. Try to help them if you feel them in any distress condition. Tell them that suicide is not the solution to any problem in any condition. Ask them to make their connection to Allah Almighty who is the best Problem Solver and Friend in any situation. In this busy environment, no one has time to help others but we should help our loved ones to save them from any state in which they feel it easier to die than live life.
