Is it okay to kill ourself


My uncle harasses me a lot of times… I don’t know if I can take it anymore… I feel disgusting about myself… I don’t think I’m worth living…


Wa-Alaykum Assalam Wa Rahmtu-Allah,

My friend, if only we knew how much Allah swt loves us we would never consider such thoughts. However if your uncle is harassing you currently (you used past tense) you should definitely stop it by reporting it to the relevant authorities and avoid contact with him.

I think this requires a personal consultation so unfortunately an email response is insufficient.
