Dr. Monzer Kahf, Scholar in Islamic Economics & Financial Expert, states the following: “It is permissible to buy useful things that are not necessary. In some surveys of all the texts of the Qur’an and Sunnah some scholars found that the rulings of the Shari’ah, all of them, fall into three categories: 1) rulings that deal with necessities that are essential to preserve life, religion, mind, future generation and property; 2) rulings related to removal of hardship or creation of conveniences for the same five fundamentals (life, religion etc.); and 3) ruling related to creating beauty and improvement in quality. This means that making things better, prettier, easier, more ameliorated and raising the quality of dealing with the five fundamentals is in fact one of the objectives of the Shari’ah.
