What does Allah Almighty say about cheap and excessively-spending people?
Let us look at what Allah Almighty said in the Noble Quran:
"Those who, when they spend, are not extravagant and not niggardly, but hold a just (balance) between those (extremes); (The Noble Quran, 25:67)"
"And let not those who are niggardly in spending what ALLAH has given them of HIS bounty, think that it is good for them; nay, it is bad for them. That with respect to which they were niggardly shall be put as a collar round their necks on the Day of Resurrection. And to ALLAH belongs the heritage of the heavens and the earth, and ALLAH is fully Aware of what you do. (The Noble Quran, 3:180)"
"Verily spendthrifts are brothers of the Evil Ones; and the Evil One is to his Lord (himself) ungrateful. (The Noble Quran, 17:27)"
As we clearly see from the Noble Verses, Allah Almighty doesn't like either those who are cheap or those who spend too much money on unnecessary things. He commands us to be balanced spenders. Those who follow Allah Almighty's Holy Commands will prosper in Paradise, while those who intentionally disobey His Holy Commands will burn in Hell:
"But those who disobey God and His Apostle and transgress His limits will be admitted to a Fire, to abide therein: And they shall have a humiliating punishment. (The Noble Quran, 4:14)"
"Then shall anyone who has done an atom's weight of good, see it! And anyone who has done an atom's weight of evil, shall see it. (The Noble Quran, 99:7)"
