    Explanation
    The permissibility of executing a murderer (a life for a life) can be found in the Quran and the Sunnah. The Quran is the holy book of Islam and contains the teachings and principles of the religion. The Sunnah refers to the actions, sayings, and approvals of the Prophet Muhammad, which provide guidance for Muslims. Both the Quran and the Sunnah are considered authoritative sources in Islam and are relied upon for matters of faith and practice. Therefore, the permissibility of executing a murderer can be derived from these two sources.
