Is it Haram (prohibited) to buy average modern furniture?
It is important to know the answer, as I will be married to a Muslim who wants to furnish the house with what was used during the days of the Messenger (peace be upon him) and we hold different views in this regard.
It is not Haram to buy average furniture and moderation is the best way. Allah says,
And those who, when they spend, are neither extravagant nor niggardly, but hold a medium (way) between those (extremes).
