I am very depressed and feel like committing suicide. I am a Muslim. I feel like life has no meaning and feel like questioning the existence of God. I feel like God doesn't care and just wants to make my life a living hell. I apologize if what I am saying is against the rules because I had no time to read. So I hope that you can find it in your heart to forgive me if I said anything wrong. I really feel like committing suicide, I don't know what I should do, I don't know if God will forgive me for the things I've done.

I pray five times a day, I read the hadith, I try to please God but I find life so difficult. I don't know why God would want to do this to me. God doesn't talk to me or answer my prayers, God seems so harsh and unapproachable, God just seems like he isn't there. And my so-called brothers (and sisters) in Islam aren't much of a help either. I feel like there is not one single human on the face of this planet who can help and understand. I feel like there is no point in living. I might lose my faith any time and just commit suicide.

What can I do?

Once again, sorry if this goes against the rules or offends anyone, I am unable to think clearly at the moment. I just hope I can find help.

hmm... I ever encounter this kind of feeling... like want to commit suicide, but because I believe that Allah exist and I scare if I die I will straight go to hell, FOREVER, that's prevent me doing it.

I believe that Allah exist because I ever make dua, I forgot whether when I still in elementary school or junior high school, and I forgot what's the dua as well, but I still remember how happy I am when Allah answer my pray. so if my dua not answered by Allah, I always think that maybe I did something wrong.

so, what should I say... well I don't know what is your problem, if you mention it to us, maybe we can look for solution together. if there is a mosque in your neighborhood that held some kind of tausiyah, attend that tausiyah.

my brother dont lose hope,be patient because all good things come to those who wait.what is better,to suffer on earth and enjoy in heaven or vice versa?dont be sad,be happy,dont compare yourself to people who are better than u,compare yourself to people who are worse than u,u want to commit suicide,think of those who are killed innocently,those who died without knowing the truth,look at u,u even have money to surf the internet,but do u know that there are people out there who wish to have what u have?think of the orphans,think of those who are mad,think of those who are sick in hospitals,look at the poor,look at the lame,just look at the less privaledged in society and compare yourself to them.dont u think allah is very merciful to u?dont only thank him when u are in good health and everything is moving smoothly in your life but let your faith be strengthened when u are in problems,because others have WORSE PROBLEMS THAN WHAT U ARE GOING THROUGH.so begin by asking Allah's forgiveness by doubting his existance,then thank him for whatever problems u are facing,because otherts have worse problems than what u have.

i will tell you smthing my brother.. many ppl dont care about the God..they think that He gave them the earth just to have fun and do nothing?but you care about the God so the goal of your life should be to prepare for your death.. we muslims believe in the life after death...dont listen to other people who's wish is to be rich and command everyone.. bcs they are confused and they don't know what they're doing on this earth..Allah created us only so we can pray to him.I know that its hard to be religious in this world since alot of people dont rly care about their death.. they are saying '' we are too young to die'' or ''death is the end'' but death can come every second...so the goal of your life should be to die as a muslim and not to die while doing bad things..

BTW, how old are you? If you want to share... Please don't do anything that you might regret when judgement day comes and also all your loved ones around you will be so hurt. If you need to talk or have anything that you want to share, please write to me. : )

The problem is that I feel like such a failure. Everyone has such bad opinions about me and has such bad things to say about me. I feel very upset about this. It makes me feel that I'm such a bad person, even though I try to please people and try to be kind. My parents think I'm a failure. I have dyslexia and ADD. When I'm in anger, I lose. When I'm sad, I lose. I feel that there is no meaning for me in this life and that everyone would be happier if I was dead.

But I will do my absolute best to change.

Salam,

first, I want to tell you that don't worry what anyone thinks of you. Think to yourself and ask if there is anything that you think you are doing wrong. If there is, chnage it as best as you can at your own pace. Your parents should understand with what you have and that is Allah's will. I am sure they do, but sit down with them and try to be calm and tell them how you feel with no anger. Being loud won't get you any where. You are still very young and have a long way to go. When I was your age that's when everything started with me.

Being depressed, angry and thinking that everyone around me hates me including my parents.But I was wrong, it was my actions that made everyone around me, give me a negative. when I changed and realized what I have to do, everything started to be great. But I started with myself first instead of blaming others. I am not against you, I am trying to help you think outside the box. Start with yourself first and see what you can do better. Please becareful with yourself. Your parents could never hate you or think less of you. Put that in mind. Btw Are you in school?

Rabina ma3ak ya rab, Salam

(May 13 '12 at 13:59) mhassan mhassan's gravatar image

Yes, I'm in school. Hoping to get into a college this year and study psychology.

I'll take your advice, I do need to move on with my life. Problem is the past still hurts. I know that I need to change myself for the better. I will also accept the fact that my parents do love me.

you need to leave everything on Allah as Allah knows whats best for you, we as human beings do not have the power to decide the best for ourselves, Allah knows the best for us, so you need to leave everything on Allah. you will see that once you leave all your matters on Allal, all issues will start to solve in minutes and you will be surprised.
