Euthanasia: alqatlo arraheem
Explanation:
Hello ALWALEED
Euthanasia: practice of mercifully ending a person's life in order to release the person from an incurable disease, intolerable suffering, or undignified death. The word euthanasia derives from the Greek for “good death” and originally referred to intentional mercy killing. When medical advances made prolonging the lives of dying or comatose patients possible, the term euthanasia was also applied to a lack of action to prevent death.

"Mowt haadii'" or "mowt raHiim" or "taisiir al-mowt"


Explanation:
Greetings / tahaiya tayyiba wa b3ad...

Some other expressions for "euthanasia" shown in Hitti's New Medical Dictionary (199 reprint edition) include:

1. Mowt haadii' موت هادىء

2. Mowt raHiim موت رحيم

3. Taisiir al-mowt تيسير الموت


"Mowt sahil" [ موت سهل ] has appeared in a few other medical references, but the above seem more prevalent.

Hope this helps your selections.

Khair, in sha' Allah.

Regards from Los Angeles,

Stephen H. Franke
