Money is important.
But we have to remember that our provision comes from Allah
Wealth is something that may be tested in life, as in sometimes we will have wealth and we must remember to be grateful to Allah for it.
And sometimes that wealth may be taken from us
as a test, and we must remember it is not the wealth that was important, as money is only a matter of this world, and still turn to Allah.
If we have the means to buy nice things, then by all means, there is nothing wrong in buying nice things. (Everyone likes nice clothes, nice homes, good food, and fast cars.)
But at the same time we should keep in mind, if I start spending more on myself, then it is best that I should also start spending more on the poor.
"The Prophet May Allah's peace and blessings be upon him said, “Eat, drink, dress and give charity, but without extravagance or arrogance.” (Sunan An-Nasaa’ee: 2559)
As the Qur’an states, “Say, ‘Who has forbidden the adornment of Allah, which He has brought forth for His servants and the good things, clean and pure, which Allah has provided for them?’ Say, ‘They are [lawful] for the believers in the present life but they shall be exclusively for them on the Day of Resurrection.’ Thus We explain Our signs for a people who understand.” (Soorat Al-A‛raaf, 7:32)"
