I was wondering about the Islamic ruling for writing fiction? If the author is talented and has a flair for writing fiction/stories, does Islam consider that as haraam? I would like to have the answer with regards to the following genres:
- Suspense thrillers, slashers, detective stories, etc.
- Stories that are based on reality like historical incidents.
- Stories that are not based on historical incidents, but still teach some (Islamic) moral lesson.
Of course, this question only makes sense (Islamically) to be asked and answered if the stories do not contain indecencies or anything that clearly goes against Islam, like paranormal stuff and so on.
