Death?

Have you ever wished for death? Not the “I want to kill myself” sort. But the sort where you just feel like it isn’t worth existing? Please be honest.  It’s not about one issue you’re facing. And no one can really relate or understand. Did you ever make dua for death? At some point in life, you must have. Even Maryam (Mary), the mother of Eesa (Jesus), wished for death when she was going through the pains of childbirth.

    Can’t say that I have – in the context you’re referring to. Probably because I am not sure where I’d stand on the other side. Nobody knows, really – so it’s a bit like gambling.

    I do have my best possible *ways* to die thought out though, and have made dua for those.

    But I suppose the better thing is not to ask for death – but to ask for a good death, whenever your time is set for.

    If I may ask, what sparked this question?

      Thank you for being honest, I do agree, I ask for a good death too. What sparked the question? The fact that the grass ins’t greener on the other side, things get worse and worse. I’m all for optimism and having faith in Allah swt, but this life really is a prison. I’m just at a point where I feel like there’s no point. Those closest to me, those who are the biggest of blessings are also the source of great hurt and the biggest of trials. Such an imperfect world we live in. It’s exhausting.

        May Allah have mercy on you and pull you through. This is all to make you stronger, and insha-Allah you will see the wisdom one day. The Master Planner knows the bigger picture we do not.

      • لَا يُكَلِّفُ اللَّهُ نَفْسًا إِلَّا مَا آتَاهَا ۚ سَيَجْعَلُ اللَّهُ بَعْدَ عُسْرٍ يُسْرًا
        Allah does not charge a soul except [according to] what He has given it. Allah will bring about, after hardship, ease. [65:7]

        “There’ll be hardship & struggle just like there’s happiness & ease. It’s the nature of this life. Don’t let the difficult times consume you. Try to focus on the good things in life. It helps you to appreciate what you have. Above all, protect your heart & your soul!.” – Mufti Ismail Menk

        “When nothing is going your way, drop everything and go pick up the Quran because sometimes a hardship is only your wake up call.” – Dr. Bilal Philips

        May Allah grant you ease.

    I think I have. There are times when I feel like my existence has no worth, or value. I truly believe there is nothing spectacular about me. The universe will continue functioning. The sun will rise, people will forget, words will fade. There are times when I have expressed this wish to take away my existence if nothing is to become of it. My status in this world is really not significant. There are times when I think I might be happier with a compassionate God, away fromthis world. Not a part of it. To wish for death explicitly is forbidden, I have heard, but I know that God is more understanding, if I may take the liberty to say it. I do feel that it is better to not live than live a purposeful, unfulfilled, useless life, impacting no one.

    But as for you, I am truly very upset that the world has made you think like this. You are a gem, and you have contributed in whatever small or large way. I hope perhaps you will somehow find peace in your living and after that. I know that I have been personally affected very deeply by your blog. If you ever want to talk, I’ll be right here.

    I honestly have done so just once though. I was going through really hard times and it just came to my mind. I would say,” Oh Allah, If this is what’s written for me then take me while I’m in a good state, Ameen.”
