  • Is wearing expensive clothing haram?

    I was told that men wearing expensive clothing is a sign of arrogance, therefore it should be avoided.

      It isn't haram, but bear in mind everyone is held accountable for how we spend our wealth so it is better to avoid extravagance.

        Good question, I have quite a few abayahs and loose cardis/shirts to wear ontop of these, I like buying ones I like/are nice (imo) and that are obv modest and loose too (and not bright/attractive, since that defeats the purpose), is it wrong for me to continue buying? if I see one that I like?

          What is haram is extravagance, overspending, squandering wealth, etc. Buying what you don't need may fall into this.

          And expensive clothing is all subjective. It goes back to the customs and culture of a country/society.

          "Cheap" brands or clothing are not worth wearing in my opinion. Usually the expensive ones are high quality and fit well. That doesn't mean you should spend full price on them. I don't think most people pay full price but they buy them on sale.

          It also goes back to your intention. To wear a certain name brand just to have it or to show off, then I think the answer is clear.

              " "Arrogance & pride is when one rejects the truth and despises people."
              The Messenger pbuh makes it clear that wearing the best of clothing, living in the best of homes, using the best of vehicles etc does NOT mean that one is proud or arrogant.
              However, when one denies the truth & belittles others thinking he is above the law & others are inferior then such a person is proud and arrogant even if they are not wealthy!"

                  Depends on what you're paying for. Are you buying it as a status symbol or is it expensive because of the quality of the clothes and because you like how it looks/feels

                    Depends on how you feel about it.

                      I agree, if you work only to dress expensively and stylishly, then it's better to give it up. And if you need it for business, I don't see anything wrong with it.

                        Interesting take, I don’t think it’s extravagance if you can afford it, it would be if you can’t though.

                          The annoying thing to be honest with clothes whether its branded or not, its made by slave labour. The same material costs pennies to make but sold at extortionate prices.

                          Finding ethical clothing isn't possible.

                          “And whatever you have of favor - it is from Allah. Then when adversity touches you, to Him you cry for help”

                            I agree, and if a person is very worried about extravagance, then after buying expensive things for himself, he can do someone a good deed.
