Suicide is a sin it is an act of cowardice. Suicide is not something at any human should consider. Taking ones life is like saying that God I don't like the life that you gave me.

Sorry my answer didn't go into depth but that best I know. If anyone knows more please please share I would really like to know.

Oh and if you are on the verge of suicidal I suggest you get help. Suicide is a very serious issue and needs to be dealt with as soon as possible. God bless you.

Bhul Chock Muaf.

Committing suicide is definitely a selfish act that people commit when they have forgotten about the God that dwells within their heart. A person's bad karma also plays a role in leading them to a forced death. People who commit suicide don't usually think about the negative affect it will have on their families. I had a great aunt in India that locked herself up in a room and lit herself on fire. By the time my other relatives heard her screaming in pain, it was too late to save her life. Her entire family suffered for this selfish act. I mean, she will have to be reborn in another life, and she will have to face other difficulties later on in that new life. From that point on, I realized that suicide was pointless, because suffering and pain is just a part of life, something that nobody can deny.

If you commit suicide it solves nothing at all. You begin the cycle of 8.4 million births all over again. All the lessons must be learned again. All the pain must be experienced again. All the karmas must still be paid. This is a losing proposition, to say the least,

Is suicide under God's will or command??? Every action we take, every thought we have, i believe whatever is happening is under his command , so if someone commits suicide, does it mean it was preordained order?? Can you please advise

No. The moment in which the decision is made is under Hukum, but it is a fork in the road. Please see this video to understand further:

Use some common sense. We are blessed with human life for a reason. Cutting our God given breaths off on purpose is a sin. Sikhs must live in a state of mind where "dukh vich sookh manaee." Through both joy and suffering, we must accept His command in our lives'. Life isn't about having fun, it's about accepting your responsibilities and serving your fellow brothers. Just remember the shaheeds in Sikh history. Did they give up when odds were against them? No, they faced death without fear. There will always be uncertainties in life, but a strong Sikh believer must always walk confidently and face the enemy (Maya) will the help the Guru. People wil try to convince you that you're worthless and that your life does not matter, but in reality, your life does matter and you must LIVE to serve the purpose for which you came to earth for.
