Giving a 4th stage cancer patient the death injection to free them from suffering

Q: My mother is suffering from lung cancer stage 4 last stage from last year. Now she has unbearable pain. So can we give her a death injection to make her free from pain?

A: This is not permissible. This is tantamount to murder. How can one be instrumental in killing his own mother?

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
