I’d like to ask a question regarding the reading and writing of stories with fantastical elements. I write stories which include magical and mythological elements. I aim to have my works published one day and make writing something more than a hobby, as it is something that brings joy to my life. As well as this, I’d like to, Insha’Allah, use that platform to spread awareness about problems in the world.
Is writing such magical and mythological elements and reading novels with said elements haram?

Writing is a useful art and a very powerful tool if used for the benefit of the human kind. As long as you make it clear in your prelude that whatever you are writing is fictional and free from any elements of heresy, it’s fine to be creative and useful.
