Taking work from jinnaat

Q: Is it shirk to invoke a good jinn bound to a vessel by believing "without the permission of Allah nothing can happen" so the jinn can be your friend without causing other people harm. Sometimes complete wishes for you such as more money and wishes that doesn't go against Islamic teachings and just guide u as a friend and the jinn is kind of a personal trainer?

A: To take work from jinnaat without their willing consent is impermissible. It is like forcing labour. Similarly asking them for wealth is also not right since you are not in a position to verify whether the wealth was received through halaal means or not.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
