Assalamualaikum I'm a Muslim girl, who is interested in writing stories. I've written a few stories and many people, including my parents, have complimented me and have encouraged me to publish them on sites . But the problem is that, I only write fiction stories. I don't want it to become my profession or anything.. And i don't want to make money or fame out of it. All I want is to write. But is fiction stories allowed in islam? And what I mean by 'fiction' is magic and adventures. Like a fairy tale or something.. Is it against Islam in doing so? I mean isn't it a form of lie as long as I'm writing something that's unreal. Is it still considered as a lie even if it has a moral in it? Please help in answering. Jazakallah khair

Fiction is expression of ones imagination. Lying is deliberately steaking false statement and convincing others that it is true. As long as readers know that its fiction its not a lie
