Okay, now when we used to talk extravagance, some people would defend some of the ayatollahs for their spending, using Hazrat SUleyman a.s. as an excuse, what do you think now!! i really wish Ayatollah khameini would now ban kim kardashian/kylie jenner clothes, muslims out there wearing tight jeans, and knee high boots like they're in some fashionista club

Is there a list of which cars are considered too extravagant, is the restriction on luxury category of cars, or is it at the discretion of the individual clergy member?

Your country as in Canada? It's not just in Canada, it's like that in all western countries. If you live there you have to deal with it.

Some of what you are mentioning is haram to begin with, without having to bring uo whether it is Western or not.

Women wearing leggings infront of non-mahrams is clearly haram.

So it's haram to be fashionable now? 

Just because a woman wears hijab doesn't mean she has to dress like a grandma or not take pride in looking presentable.

But there is a line that must not be crossed. We Muslims should look presentable, and even fashionable in certain situations, but the problem is people who sacrifice modesty for the feeling of fitting in.

I know. I've seen it. I put it in the same category as women going out for exercise in their underwear. They look like they forgot to dress. Silly people.

I'm not going to argue with you because you seem insistent on your views, and I know a lot of woman who are quick to judge like you are and are ta'asobi. I.E. narrow minded in religion and almost intolerant.

Um, I don't focus on attracting males. 

Do you think that just because you wear presentable and fashionable clothing you are automatically immodest? For your information, I'm very modest in dress and yet I take pride in looking well-groomed and well-dressed no matter what. Even in long sleeves.

There is no proscribed style of clothing that Muslims have to wear. We have set standards of modesty. Beyond that, a woman can choose what she feels comfortable in and is suitable for her environment. If a woman wants to dress "fashionably" within Islamic criteria, she is not better or worse than one who dresses traditionally. 

 

But isn't the topic about a restriction for the clergy on luxury cars, not women's attire? The luxury car restriction doesn't even apply to most of us, but what I asked before, what are the criteria for determining luxury, I'm still wondering about that.

I don't need judgement from you. Who are you to pass judgement? 

There are plenty of fashionable, modest clothing. Use google.

Any car that's considered a luxury car by the common view of the people. If you buy a Honda for example, people will see it as just a regular car where as you buy a corvette peoples natural mindset will consider it as an exotic car.

It seems quite subjective.  If a scholar drives a basic model sedan made by lexus or mercedes, is he sinning?  Or what is he drives a car which would have been considered extravagant when it was new, but bought it used for a moderate price?  Is it individual discretion or are there guidelines?  

I drive a 12 year old "luxury" vehicle, leather seats and all.  I'm nowhere near extravagant, it was just the only thing I could find in my (low) price range with enough seats for my whole family.

This is what I am wondering too. What is the criteria for "Luxury"? I can buy a Mercedes or Lexus and it can be classified as luxury but at the same time even in a Honda nowadays they come with options like leather and heated seats and wood grain consoles? So yes what are the guidelines? 

I can go out and buy a 25-30 year old Mercedes 300D or 300E which was at the top of the line in Luxury Cars back in its day for $2000 just because I've always wanted to own a Mercedes but is this really wrong?

I'm a bit confused.

What he said was expensive luxury cars. Which means cars like lambos, ferraris and other sport cars. Buying an $80,000 BMW SUV for example is quite pricey but it's not considered an expensive luxury car by the common view, at least here in Canada or USA. However buying a $300,000 Bentley is considered an expensive luxury car, which makes it haram.
