    behenji, most of the suicides are impulsive... it is rare that two people have suicide on mind, hire a car and travel all the way to far off remote village and set fire on their car at the dead of a night... regarding insurance, death by suicide will not get the insured amount... however car has not committed suicide, it was set on fire, hussain will get insurance...

    Somebody promised a guaranteed Rizk. However, it is not coming. when will you ask questions to the one who promised? you need guts to ask the one who promised and I am sure you wont out of fear that the ticket to heaven may not come. instead, risk of being kebabbed in hot oil or barbecued in fire for offending the power may befall on you. . You want ordinary mortals to do the magic but how it is possible?
