    For RS Edexcel Unit 1 exam, was there the question about why are Muslims not accepting euthanasia? Or was it abortion or divorce?

    It was about not accepting euthanasia

    I said Euthanasia is banned in Shariah law, would it be fine?

    I said Euthanasia is banned in Shariah law, would it be fine?
    I seem to remember this as being a C question so:

    - Can be seen as suicide, suicide is forbidden as it is ending the test that is worldly life before Allah wishes it to end.
    - Can be seen as murder which is forbidden (haram). A Quranic verse says that the killing of one person brings the same amount of sin as killing the whole of mankind (paraphrasing here)
    - Muslims believe Allah will not burden a soul with more suffering than it can take (Quran) so they should not try to escape suffering.
    - Life is sacred (Sanctity of life) so only Allah can give or take it.

    Would Shariah law be fine though? I guess it isn't...

    I can't remember that myself but it will probably be fine as the Qur'an forbids it.
