Suicide and Mental Health in the Muslim Community


With multiple instances of suicide recently occurring in the Dallas, TX Muslim community and within our North American Muslim community, a local Imam heals a community:

“Here in Dallas, we have been shaken by the news about a sister who committed suicide somewhere in the area – a mother of three. SubhanAllah, even as we’re trying to cope with the news and make sense of what happened and where we failed as a community to protect her, we get another piece of news from Virginia. Another mother- who was also very well known in the community and active on many different levels- took her life through suicide. As an Imam, community leader, and counselor – Wallahi it was overwhelming. For the past two or three days, I had been trying to put words together for this khutba and I could not make sense of it…”                         – Sh. Yaser Birjas
