Is It Permissible to Use AI Writing Tools to Generate Articles and Other Such Content?

Hanafi Fiqh

Answered by Mawlana Ilyas Patel


I wanted to ask you whether my earnings are halal or not. I work as a writer. My job is to write articles on various topics which I can select. Now, I take the help of a website that automatically writes as I put topics on it. If I want to write about, say, how many planets there are, I’ll put this on the website, and the website will write the whole paragraph for me about the whole solar system.

It generates the original paragraph, which is not copied from anywhere most of the time. Now I do this, and then I copy what I get from the website into my article. Now the website is inaccurate, so I sometimes have to format the sentences according to the given topic.


In the Name of Allah, the Most Merciful and Compassionate

Using AI writing tools to generate articles and content would be permissible as long as one uses these websites operated legally and within the legal framework of your country. Also, one should not generate or write about immoral, obscene characters, or shameless content that leads to destructive character, etc., and strive to do what benefits others in every way.

The Best People are Those Who Benefit Others

Jabir (Allah be pleased with him) reported the Messenger of Allah (Allah bless him and give him peace) said, “The believer is friendly and befriended, for there is no goodness in one who is neither friendly nor befriended. The best of people are those who are most beneficial to people.” [Tabarani, Al-Mujam al-Awsat; Nahlawi, al-Durar al-Mubaha; Rada al-Haq, Fatawa Darul Ulum Zakariyya]
