Praise be to Allaah.
We have previously spoken about the ruling on using someone
else's Internet connection. Please see the answer to question number
If we assume that your using this Internet connection
affected its speed and harmed your neighbour, then this is a sin that you
must ask forgiveness for. But it does not mean that you cannot make use of
talents in writing or benefit from them, whether it is said that you had
this talent before or you acquired it by using the Internet -- which is
unlikely -- but if you give something in charity on behalf of the people
whose rights you transgressed against, that is something good in sha
We do not advise you to use that talent in writing that you
have discovered in the Internet, because this is something that may not have
good consequences, because there is a lot of nonsense on the Internet, the
traps of the shaytaan are widespread in it and his tricks are hidden. Strive
to write essays or books that will be of benefit to you and your brothers,
focus more on calling people to Allaah, enjoining what is good and
forbidding what is evil, and teaching useful books to your sisters and the
people around you. Let your focus in writing be that which is of benefit and
which brings you closer to Allaah, and you will be happy when you see it in
the record of your good deeds on the Day of Resurrection.
We ask Allaah to bless and guide us and you.
And Allaah knows best.
