Person who commits suicide

Question ID: 28122

As-Salaam Mufti,

Jezaak-Allah for the informative Website.
I would like to know what happens to the soul of a person who commits suicide?

How should we as family or friends react to this Haraam act. Are we allowed to make dua or recite Surah Yaseen etc on their behalf? Also are we allowed to talk about the horrendous act & the repocussions of it to the youth of the family? By doing so we will be indirectly talking ill about the deceased.Does this make us sinners?
In what manner do we console the immediate family of the deceased?

Maaf for all the questions.

Your valuable naseeha is appreciated.

The soul taken to where the bad souls are kept. You may make Duaa, give charity, read Quraan etc on behalf of the dead. By way of deterant one may narrate the consequences of this Taqdeer to those grieving. Have intentions in proper position to avoid becoming sinners.
