A Common Trend in today’s Muslim Ummah

‘Umar (RA) said: We have been forbidden to go into excess.

[Al-Bukhari]

Commentary

Exaggeration and artificiality are different forms of formality which some people exercise in their speech, dress and manners. For example: to make unusual efforts in hospitality and preparation of several dishes for meals also comes in the category of formality which is greatly disliked. Regrettably, present-day Muslims have made it a habit to spend lavishly on these extravagances. May Allah grant us guidance to adhere to the religious injunctions in all matters of life.
