Look at this situation, if you are raped and killed, you will die a person whos rights were taken from them. You may receive mercy in your punishment because of this from your lord. If you kill yourself you will be damned to eternal fire, no mercy will be given on you. Which choice sounds better to you?

dear sister salaam

well ur botheing question has questions to be answerd to get to ur answer
infact ur answer is my question

wen a gal is getting raped
does she hve the only way as sucide n nothing else?

in the holy quran we hve the event of Hazrat yusuf
he was very handsome mashaAllah
n the lady tried to do an act of this kind with him
wat did he do?

we have other stories as a lady scrubing stoll on her body to run away from the rapers...

so killing ones self is not the only way out.. but it has other ways out as well

i hope this replies u ...

thank you for ur view Moti...but when saying bout Prophet Yusuf its a woman acting over a man but here i m talkin bout a man acting over a woman..and u knw we arent like imams or bibi's ...obviously when a woman is bout to be raped wat other option can she think of? and if she does commit suicide would she go to hell?

salaams

it was nice to c ur concern on the reply,
well doing more research on ur question
the scholars say..

SUCIDE IS HARAM
it is not allowed at any case
not in the one you asked about.

so we end up saying no the girl in that case can not comit sucide

and talking abt the prophets and imams and bibis
we are not like them
but we can be something like them
and follow they way they were following

refering to prhphet yusuf
it was just a refrence from the Holy Quran
and to answer your question
i had referd to another story as well
which is in the riwayats

hope i answerd your questions

iltimase dua

salaam un alaikum wr wb

suicide is not allowed in any circumstances she should not loss her hope and relay on Allah swt if she believe on Allah that every thing in this world in the hand of Allah swt he gives life,death and respect because Allah says in Quran that losing the hope is not sign of believers but it is sign of Kufr and Allah promised with oppressed persons in Quran he will help them in this world and will take their retaliation and give them reward in here after.
in chapter Isra
وَلَا تَقْتُلُوا النَّفْسَ الَّتِي حَرَّ‌مَ اللَّـهُ إِلَّا بِالْحَقِّ ۗ وَمَن قُتِلَ مَظْلُومًا فَقَدْ جَعَلْنَا لِوَلِيِّهِ سُلْطَانًا فَلَا يُسْرِ‌ف فِّي الْقَتْلِ ۖ إِنَّهُ كَانَ مَنصُورً‌ا ﴿٣٣﴾

Do not kill a soul [whose life] Allah has made inviolable, except with due cause, and whoever is killed wrongfully, We have certainly given his heir an authority. But let him not commit any excess in killing [the murderer], for he has been assisted [by law].

hope will be beneficial insha Allah
