Muslim Community Suicide Response

Suicide is a complex and deeply concerning issue that affects individuals across all communities, including the Muslim community. At Maristan, we recognize the importance of addressing the unique challenges faced by individuals struggling with suicidal thoughts and their loved ones. We provide a safe and empathetic space where you can find support, understanding, and guidance during these difficult times.

How Can We Support Those Affected by Suicide?

Choose your words with care when responding to suicide in Muslim communities. As Asma Uddin, a Muslim human rights lawyer, wisely said, "Our words have the power to either heal or harm, especially during times of grief." Instead of searching for easy answers or assuming we comprehend their pain, let us extend genuine empathy. Say:

"I can't fully grasp the depth of your suffering, but I want you to know that I am here to support you."
