    There's no ego death in Islam. Yet, there's ego - nafs. Quran/Allah and our Prophet saws talk a lot about our desires and lust which is from the negative ego. We were never advised to "kill" or "destroy" our ego, but to submit it to Allah's will instead to our desires and on the other side if you'd be egoless that would also mean no free will.

    I mentioned suicide. Well, I used to hear that often when someone commits suicide that it happens when the ego is broken, absent, etc from judges and forensics.
    True. That makes sense. Would you say people who change their life and accept Islam go through an ego death?

      I'd rather say ego correction. As Allah says in Quran: And I swear by the reproaching soul [to the certainty of resurrection]. Quran, 75:2

      (The word is nafs which means ego in fact)
      Don't rush your salat for anything, as you are standing in front of
      The One who is in charge of whatever you are rushing for!
