Is it permissible for a novelist/writer to work for a client who wants erotic stories?

Please cite references from Quran/Hadith, if there are any.

And also, are there any fatwas from shia scholars regarding this ruling?

Thanks in advance!

Quran 5/2:

but do not help one another in sin and transgression [al-Maa’idah 5:2]

Fatwa about erotic stories here.

  • This is half of the answer. You need to also show making erotic stories are haraam.
