IslamQA: Hope for someone desiring suicide

I want to KILL myself But im not cuz its haram But idk what to do help me Give me hope

Think back to the past and remember all the difficulties that you once suffered from and that have disappeared from your life. Sooner or later, your present difficulty will also be part of the past and will stop influencing you. No matter how difficult the day or week is, it will pass. To kill yourself is to say that you do not believe that God can put a stop to your situation. Do you think God is that powerless? Ask God for help and He can help you in ways you never expected.

Please see these two articles I wrote a while ago:

The Road to Maturity: On Dealing with Life’s Unsolvable Problems

God has not abandoned you: Regaining your sense of purpose when life feels spiritually empty, lonely and meaningless

And God knows best.

    Tried for over 10 years now and nothing so obviously things start develop in a negative way.
    I have schizophrenia and been living like a worthless person for long enough.
    Telling me that it gets better is like telling someone to jump into fire and promising the, to be okay. It’s not.currently suicide seems like the only viable solution to stop that pain that drives me insane all day every day

      It sounds like you need medical help. This type of advice is not meant to replace medicine. God will not usually provide people with miraculous cures. If He helps you, He causes you to be helped the normal way, by finding the right treatment.
