JIH team convinces elderly couple to drop their suicide plans

JIH Maharashtra team convinces an elderly couple to abandon their suicide plans citing the teachings of the Qur'an and Prophet Muhammad صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم
Saturday, 20th January 2018
The President of Jamaat-e-Islami Hind Maharashtra, Engineer Taufeeq Aslam Khan, PR secretary Abdul Hafeez Farooqui and secretary for social services Mazhar Farooq paid a courtesy visit to Mr. Narayan Lawate (88) and his wife Mrs. Iravati Lawate (78) at their Charni Road residence today and convinced them to abandon their suicide plans. The couple had written to the President of India requesting permission to terminate their lives.
The couple said that they were tired of living and did not see any purpose to their lives, given their old age. Surviving on Govt pension, they said that they have no children and no one else to attend to them either.
The JIH team explained to them that life and death are predestined and there is an eternal life after our death. Taufeeq sahab reassured them that you are not alone, we are with you, we will take care of you.
When asked why they are showing so much concern, Taufeeq sahab said that all men are children of Adam and Eve and hence family, and that Prophet Muhammad صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم has taught us to be kind and helpful to the needy. Such an act would please God and make us eligible of His mercy.
The couple was so overwhelmed with these Islamic teachings and the gesture of the JIH team that they dropped their idea of committing suicide and promised them that they would live the life that God has ordained for them. They said that many people had come to visit them but nobody had told them about these reassuring things.
The couple were gifted a Marathi translation of the Qur'an and some other books on the hereafter and other spiritual topics. The team took their leave for the day, leaving them with a new hope and renewed determination.
