One of the most important discussion in philosophy and laws is human domination/lack of domination on himself/herself. In other words, does/doesn’t human enjoy the right of intervening his/her organs in any way? If such right exists, what is the basis of such interference? There are two main insights in this regard. Those ones who have accepted human domination on himself in an absolute manner since their insight is based on material worldview and consider human reality by his/her vegetative and animal facets and do not consider human’s spiritual aspect. In contrary, those ones who have not absolutely accepted human domination on himself/herself and believe that in addition to material aspect, human has a spiritual facet and human’s reality is related to his/her humanity rather than his/her body and, on this basis, Islamic laws obtained from revelation are forged. If suicide is haram (forbidden), it is due its contradiction to humanity and human benevolence.
