Taking money from fairies

Q: I have a question about fairies... Should we have faith in them... What if they offer you some money and should we talk to them if they want to talk to us?

A: If by the word fairy you are referring to imagination and guesswork then it is just an imagination. And an imagination does not exist.

We have just explained that if it is an imagination then it does not exist. But if it is something that exists then it is not just an imagination. There can be two possibilities. The greater possibility is that it can be a jinn, and you do not know how the jinn got the money, rightfully or wrongfully. Hence, when you do not know how they got it, you cannot take it.

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