Spending wealth on comforts

Q: If Allah Ta'ala has given us abundant wealth, is there anything wrong in using it for our own comforts? I mean to build nice furnished house, wear good clothes, have high quality food, visit tourist places etc, provided we also give out our wealth in charity? Or we should only live a simple life and give out greater part of our wealth in the path of Allah as Sahaba (Radiyallahu Anhum) used to do?

A: Yes, it is permissible provided there is no wastage or show.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
