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.

Dear brother, I would like to quote here a few verses of the Quran, where Allah, may He be Exalted says: [interpretation of the meaning:]

And from wherever you go out [for prayer], turn your face toward al-Masjid al-Haram. And wherever you [believers] may be, turn your faces toward it in order that the people will not have any argument against you, except for those of them who commit wrong; so fear them not but fear Me. And [it is] so I may complete My favor upon you and that you may be guided.

Just as We have sent among you a messenger from yourselves reciting to you Our verses and purifying you and teaching you the Book and wisdom and teaching you that which you did not know.

So remember Me; I will remember you. And be grateful to Me and do not deny Me.

O you who believe! Seek help in patience and As-Salat (the prayer). Truly! Allah is with As-Sabirin (the patient ones, etc.).

And say not of those who are killed in the Way of Allah, "They are dead." Nay, they are living, but you perceive (it) not.

And certainly, We shall test you with something of fear, hunger, loss of wealth, lives and fruits, but give glad tidings to As-Sabirin (the patient ones, etc.).

Who, when afflicted with calamity, say: "Truly! To Allah we belong and truly, to Him we shall return."

They are those on whom are the Salawat (i.e. blessings, etc.) (i.e. who are blessed and will be forgiven) from their Lord, and (they are those who) receive His Mercy, and it is they who are the guided-ones.

(2:150-157)strong text

Dear brother, do not give up hope and do not despair of the Mercy of your Lord, the Most Forgiving, the Most Merciful and do not forge that He is the acceptor of our supplications and that He will reward the good doers in the Hereafter with Paradise. Remember that your Lord is the Most Just and that this life is but a test that will soon be over. and reflect on His blessings. If you try to count them, and you can never fully count and innumerate them, you will always find them to be greater than your dificulties.

Remember brother that Satan invites you to the hellfire and Allah invites you to His Mercy and Forgiveness.

May Allah make it easy for you.. Ameen.

asalaaam aleykum

don't commit suicide simple as that..... .....and as hard as diamond.

relax...do your prayers as usual and don't go after those books

you need 'change' of the ways you are now

change and make them simple and

easy as well as you believe that Allah hears everything and know.

do not go after what you have read as HARAM change the ways of thinking and be simple and let the matter with ALLAH wa huwa Faal Limaa Yuriid...sadaqa Lllah.

you also need to SHOUT go somewhere jungle forset i mean any empty quarter and SHOOOOOOOUT

or singing loudly and see the difference.

bissm allah alrahman arraheem......ina ma3 ilusry usraa, with difficult times comes ease, this is a verse found in many surahs in the quran somtimes we may feel hoplessness but allah has given us this verse as an ease to our hearts, remmember this verse whenever you feel times are difficult, keep your faith as strong as you can although it may seem difficult continue with your daily prayers and 3ibada and inshaallah your usrraa, or ease will come

"...Bear with patience whatever befalls you...." (Qur'an 31:17) and "Be not sad, surely Allah is with us." (Qur'an 9:40)"O' you who believe! Seek help in patience and the Prayer." (Qur'an 2:153)

Thank you, brother/sister. I will take note. It is difficult sometimes because hope feels so nonexistent.

I can relate to your difficulties and hardship, patients brother. I went through tough times myself for about 7 years. I felt the same way.  Don't give and don't quit believing.  This world is nothing compared to the hereafter.  The hardships you face can only make you stronger.  Please remember Allah is great and caring. We are all tested in this world, you will be rewarded for the hardships you face.  Remember be stronger and never give up. My Allah give you strength and shower you with his blessings...Ammen. Salaam Alykoum

Walaikumsalaam, I appreciate the advice. I felt like giving up, but I will do my best InshaAllah.

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..

Brother AbdullahImranAz, Trials and tribulaions are the means of purifying you so that you can go to the purest places(jannat ). The punishment of Allah is not out of anger and wrath but the punishment of Allah is the way of cleansing you out of your sins so that you can go to the noblest places.

http://www.deziforum.com/showthread.php?650-Fikar-Aur-Preshani-K-Waqt-ki-Dua

REad the above Dua continuously..and kalma sahrif all the time in your mouth and stop thinking about your difficulties. and never think of sucide.because your life of depression in this world can be upto 60-70 years but after death , that life is eternal.and the person who will commit sucide,all of his good deeds will be ruined and he will remain in the jahanam forever..so my brother, seek help from Allah.He(Almighty) is testing you...stop considering that u are only one who is suffering from difficulties..He(Almighty) Tests every person in this world by different ways to seperate the people of heaven and hell....:) stay Happy..your Life is a blessing .....Respect it and value it,,:)

Thank you for the reply, I'll read the dua you have sent me. I appreciate it, may Allah reward you.

Allah must really love me if he's testing me this much.

Just to add to what mohni said, Allah ONLY tests us to what we are capable of handling. we are never tested beyond are capability. So just remember that! You CAN pass this trial, otherwise you would not be tested with it. :)
