Daydreaming about committing offenses

Q132 :A person I know seems to have a hyperactive imagination, repeatedly fantasizing about committing crimes and offenses that are impossible for him to commit. Is such daydreaming a sin?


A132 : Allah forgives us what we may contemplate of offenses and crimes. He takes us to account only for what we commit. However, the person whose case you have mentioned should make an effort to stop his daydreaming. If he always thinks of committing such offenses, a day may come when he falls victim to his active imagination and commits the offenses in question.
