3. The prohibition of these things reflects the temperament and disposition of Islam. Islam encourages simplicity and
piety in eating, drinking, dress and living; and forbids luxury and ease that creates resemblance and likeness with the
disbelievers. Alas! Present-day Muslims have adopted ease and luxury and made it the criterion of nobility and are
following in the footsteps of the disbelievers. Everyone is busy day and night to attain the western standard of living
by hook or by crook. May Allah lead them on the Right Path.
