Assisted suicide

Q. what is the Islamic perspective on assisted suicide?

A. Since suicide is haram, assisting in suicide is haram also. The suicide makes himself the final lord of his own life. It would be better to pour someone a glass of wine, and Allah cursed the wine-pourer. Allah knows best.
