Buying lingerie for one’s wife


Assalamualaikum Mufti saab

Is it okay for a husband to buy his wife body stockings/ sexually arousing costumes/ lingerie?

These come at a price, will spending on these be considered israaf? 


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

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

It is permissible for the husband to purchase such clothing for one’s wife. That is not Israaf. [i]

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
