Answer

In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Assalaamu `alaykum waRahmatullahi Wabarakatoh

1. It is not permissible to engage in a general online chat with the opposite gender. It is human nature to be attracted to the opposite gender. Curiosity is also a sensitive instinct in a person. If a male chats with a female, the above mentioned two factors will feature prominently in his communication with the female counterpart. He will gradually get attracted to her and his curiosity about her will unleash a host of attractions towards her. What’s supposed to be a general online discussion is now a jailbird of desires locked in a secure prison of Shaitaan and fitna. Allah says, “And do not go close to zina, it is immoral.” The online chats is a road to zina and therefore prohibited.
2. Day dreaming of all evil and immoral acts is prohibited.

And Allah knows best
