Drowning/Submerged in Permitted (Mubah) Thing(s)?

Q:

What is the explanation on “Drowning/Submerged in Permitted (Mubah) thing(s)”?

Is it true that it’s better to avoid Permitted (Mubah) Thing(s)?

Is doing such thing decreases one’s level/degree?

A:

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.

All praise and thanks are due to Allah, and peace and blessings be upon His Messenger.

With the exclusion of prohibited things, Muslims may enjoy Allah’s blessings and permissible things. Allah (exalted is He) says in the Quran what means, “Say: Who is it that has prohibited the adornments of Allah, which He has brought forth for His servants, and the wholesome things of [His] provision? Say [to them]: Such things are [lawful] in the life of this world for those who believe- and they shall be purely so [for them alone] on the Day of Resurrection.” (Al-A`raf 7:32)

Islam teaches us to be moderate and reasonable when enjoying such blessings. The Quran calls upon us, “O Children of Adam! Don your adorning apparel when setting out for every place of worship. Moreover, eat and drink]. But do not be excessive. For, indeed, He does not love those who are excessive.” (Al-A`raf 7:31)

Another Quranic injunction dictates “Thus you shall not keep your hand yoked to your neck [out of stinginess], nor extend it to the utmost extent  [in extravagance. For] then you would remain [ever] blameworthy [and] regretful.” A(Al-Israa 17:29)

Extravagance and excessive use and consumption of permissible things are thus prohibited by the Shari`ah. The Quran declares “Indeed, the squanderers are [the evil] brethren of the Satans.” (Al-Israa 17:27) and But do not be excessive. Indeed, He does not love those who are excessive.” (Al-An`am 6:141)

Extravagance leads to loss of health and wealth and opens the door for the Satan to allure and mislead man.

Allah Almighty knows best.
