we don't commit suicide for Paradise.

Allah says:
And never think of those who have been killed in the cause of Allah as dead. Rather, they are alive with their Lord, receiving provision, (169) Rejoicing in what Allah has bestowed upon them of His bounty, and they receive good tidings about those [to be martyred] after them who have not yet joined them – that there will be no fear concerning them, nor will they grieve. (170) They receive good tidings of favor from Allah and bounty and [of the fact] that Allah does not allow the reward of believers to be lost – (171) Those [believers] who responded to Allah and the Messenger after injury had struck them. For those who did good among them and feared Allah is a great reward – (172) Those to whom people [i.e., hypocrites] said, "Indeed, the people have gathered against you, so fear them." But it [merely] increased them in faith, and they said, "Sufficient for us is Allah, and [He is] the best Disposer of affairs." (173) So they returned with favor from Allah and bounty, no harm having touched them. And they pursued the pleasure of Allah, and Allah is the possessor of great bounty. (3/196-174) then we vever ide but for Allah and the truth not for the other desires even secured by Allah for his warriors.
