Question
what is the fate in the after life of a person if he was suffering from severe schizophrenia but didnt know that, and in frustration and depression says prayer or prays to god to send him to hell in the afterlife even if he in future asks for forgiveness and changes his mind and asks god to send him to heaven. then he gets diagnosed for the disease gets treated for a number of years and gets a lot better and remembers what he had said and realizes what a terrible mistake he has made and asks for forgiveness and asks to be sent to heaven, will he be forgiven by god and sent to heaven when he dies or is his fate sealed and he will go to hell? does god accept it when a person curses themselves to go to hell or pray to go to hell?or does god forgive a person if later on they pray to go to heaven,( even if they had asked god to send them to hell no matter if they change their minds later on.)
Also what if the person was not suffering from any mental disease and was normal will he be treated the same way? even if he repented later on too? what if the person was only mentally disturbed and not schizophrenic as the doctors diagnosed?in any case will the person be sent to heaven if he asks to be sent to heaven later on?
Also is this some from of kufr shirk or just a major sin?

Answer
ASSALAAMU ALAIKUM WB

That's nothing to worry about - Allaah is most Most Merciful and Most Forgiving and would surely accept the person's repentance.
