Modern society is very complex. Because we always seek to satisfy ourselves with appreciation, we obtain from others and mutual recognition.

Therefore, the worst thing that some thinkers have invented is the term class struggle in societies.

 And the division of all societies into two parties.

 In the social stratification, slaves, and nobles.

In the feudal division into peasants and feudal lords.

And in the capitalist division into workers and capitalists.

And in the scientific division are scholars and ignorant people

The deliberate neglect of the middle class, lack of appreciation of it, and neglect of ideals and morals was a strong reason for the existence of class division in society, and the ability to acquire goods and obtain services became what gives social status, respect, psychological satisfaction, and societal acceptance.

The reasons for the illusion of buying luxury items:

1- People’s desires and aspirations and moving from one layer to another regardless of the steps or stages necessary for their economic and social development.

2- The division of society between those who have money and those who do not have money.

 3- The practice of some types of bullying and symbolic violence between those who have money and those who do not.

4- Low-income people are eager to buy expensive things and borrow to buy them to feel psychological satisfaction from within and realize some dreams and aspirations.

5- The association of social standing and societal respect can show wealth and be proud of everything expensive or luxurious clothes, even if in debt.

6- The low value of ideals and good morals in society.

7- The failure of the media to pay attention to the ideal of scholars and thinkers who influence the world.

 8- Associating wealth with comfort and safety and its effect on people’s happiness in an exaggerated way.

9- The spread of a culture of consumption and a display of luxury in societies.

10- The monolithic societal division of successful models and linking the value of social standing and success with financial wealth.

 As a result of spending money in a way that outweighs the income, people are exposed to:

 1- Debt and financial struggle.

 2- Seeking to join more than one job to cover the financial burdens.

 3- Stress and nervous tension resulting from stress, which negatively affect the person physically and psychologically.

 4- Lack of respect for him, either by permanently borrowing from individuals or banks or acting in insulting behavior such as theft.

5- The dear feeling of misery and dissatisfaction links happiness and security with wealth or everything luxurious.

No one refuses to live in wealth, luxury, and well-being. Still, it must be based on awareness, work, and satisfaction with everything we possess without feeling superior and a vanity for everyone who is financially less or a feeling of inferiority and lack of self-esteem for everyone who is economically superior.

Therefore, our awareness of the supreme value of the human being must change and concern for the development and improvement of humankind and his education, and show brilliant and useful models for the world such as reforming scientists in society and the search for new ways to obtain happiness in reform in the world and support everything moral and good for humanity away from the feelings of consumers and proud of money without concern That they have a positive impact on the universe.
