6. Financial burden:

Sometimes someone has taken loan and feels himself not to be able to payback. This causes him restlessness and finally leads him to suicide.

7. Sickness:

Sometimes a prolonged and long lasting disease causes a person to commit suicide.

I feel one reason for increasing suicide attempts is that we are going far from ALLAH. We have left His guidelines and teachings of Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H). This distance has increased depression. We can control it by bowing down in front of Allah, and by asking Him for help.

We have made wrong placement of people and things in our lives. We have forgotten that this world is not permanent and everything in it is also temporary. So anything or any person we have today, we my loose it tomorrow. So make yourself ready for it pre-handed. If we are able to accept this reality and we make our friendship with Allah, we will be able to be out of depression even without any proper medication.
