Responding to Suicide with Dr. Farah Islam
Show Notes

If you or someone you know is experiencing suicidal thoughts or a crisis, please reach out immediately to the S∪icide Prevention Lifeline at 800-273-8255 or to you local prevention centers or mental health experts . 
S∪icide is one of the leading causes of death in the United States, and despite what some may believe, Muslims are not immune to it. As such, it is necessary for us to understand how best to respond to it. 

What is Islam’s position on s∪icide and those who passed away from it? How should we respond as a community when we lose someone in this way? What can we do as individuals to protect ourselves and others from this crisis? 

In this episode, host Mohamad Zaoud sits down with Dr. Farah Islam, Director of the Psychospirituality Department at Yaqeen Institute, to explore these questions and discuss suicide prevention.
