Ruling on Fiction Stories | The Permanent Committee

Is it permissible for a person to write fiction stories, which are all lies, for children to read and learn from?

A: It is Haram (prohibited) for a person to write such false stories. The stories mentioned in the Qur’an, the Sunnah and other factual stories suffice and serve as moral lessons.

May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.

Editors note: If one were to pay attention, modern day Children’s Fiction Stories contain dangerous ideas and ideologies which exposes the innocent child to negative behavioral tendencies and corrupt belief systems. Most of the famous authors are known for their disbelief and immoral behavior.

We ask Allāh, the Most High, for protection and safety from the plots and ploys of the disbelievers.
