        I don’t feel guilty spending on myself. I’d feel guilty spending someone else’s money on my self, even if it was a parent or a spouse but as for my own money, then no I don’t feel guilty. I’m also not a shopaholic and only treat myself to things that I really want or need & ive been fortunate enough to be able to sell loads of things on eBay when I get bored of it. Most my money goes on my children or my house, so anything I buy for myself is definitely well deserved (and well needed!)

          No, I never felt guilty.. On the other hand, I always spend myself after fullfilling my husband and my family members' desires. Most of the time I only get little money for myself.But, I spend it happily for me

            Always feel a pang of guilt knowing there are kids around the world going to sleep hungry while I fritter money away on non essentials..anyone who says no is probably a completely self centred individual.

                I definitely feel guilty spending on myself, I feel like in the past I have accidently wasted a lot of money without realising, may Allaah forgive me for doing this. Insha' Allah I want to give the stuff away, like I have so many abayahs and how many can a person wear? Having less is better (for me). So now I try not to buy things unless necessary. It would be different if I was purchasing thing for the benefit of others, i.e when I get married, I would not feel guilty buying makeup/perfumes to wear at home etc. But right now, yes I would feel guilty. I can spend loads on others and it would never be a waste, but on myself I would consider it a waste. At the moment I do work and i have recently started trying to save, just in-case of the future/emergencies and because I don't want to work after marriage Insha'Allah (if that is in my Qadr). But yeah even saving sometimes I start feeling :/ about, because other people are struggling and starving, and I feel like I should do more. May Allaah guide all of us. Aameen.

                I don't feel guilty buying stuff I need or use, but I mean luxuries.

                      Self centred? We have Zakat and Sadaqah. The OP didn’t ask if we feel guilty on spending on non essentials, he simply asked if we feel guilty on spending on ourselves. We are people of balance. I don’t know how it makes someone self centred to not feel guilty if they spend on themselves....

                        Still no.

                        If you cant spend on yourself then you cant spend on others. Simple.

                          Yeah all the time. I'm reasonably sensible but strictly speaking a lot of what I get I could live without, at least for a certain period of time.

                          Those Hermes and LV bags as investments...I mean really?!?

                            I'm pretty sure the OP was not talking about buying yourself a loaf of bread or pint of milk. He was referring to adding another outfit to any already bursting wardrobe or another pair of shoes or some other unnecessary material item. I think it is self centred. You may disagree and this very thread shows that your view is probably shared by the majority. Materialism is most definately the new normal.

                            When a part of the body hurts, the whole body feels the pain.

                              I dont necessarily disagree with it, I was being a literalist when I read the OP's post
