Islam is totally opposed /against to euthanasia. The Qur’an says that Allah created all life and everything belongs to him:

To Allah belongs the kingdom of the heavens and the earth. He creates what He pleases. Surah 42:50 Because of this, Muslim people are forbidden to kill themselves: Destroy not yourselves. Surely Allah is ever merciful to you. Surah 4:29 Suicide The Prophet Muhammad said that suicides would go to hell: Anyone who throws themselves down from a rock and commits suicide will be throwing themselves into Hell. A person who drinks poison and kills themselves will drink it for ever in Hell. A person who stabs themselves will stab themselves for ever in Hell. (Hadith) If people are suffering badly they should ask Allah for help: O ye who believe, seek the help of Allah through steadfastness and Prayer; surely Allah is with the steadfast.... We will surely try you with somewhat of fear and hunger, and loss of wealth and lives and fruits; then give glad tidings to the steadfast, who, when a misfortune overtakes them do not lose heart, but say: Surely, to Allah we belong and to Him we will return. Surah 2:153-156 No one has the right to decide when they will die: When their time... arrives they cannot tarry for a single hour nor can they go ahead. Surah 16:61 No one can die except by Allah’s leave, that is a decree with a fixed term. I hope you will be successful with this exam bc I am doing the same exam. Thanks
