“It was said to [the Companion] Samurah ibn Jundub, may Allaah be pleased with him, ‘Your son spent the night gorged such that he suffered from indigestion.’ So he said, ‘If he had died I wouldn’t have prayed over him.’

Shaikh Taqiyud-Deen said, ‘Namely, because he would have aided in killing himself, and so would be like someone who committed suicide.’”

Al-Aadaab ash-Shar’iyah wal-Manh al-Mar’iyah, vol. 3, p. 196.
