Whether the concept of decoration (in common) is allowed or not as per our religion because i read some hadith in which decoration is not liked .So tell your statement with reference to our islamic law whether it tell us to do or to avoid?

الجواب حامداومصليا

Islam is the religion that teaches moderation in all matters to its followers. If your question is about decorating a house then it is permissible within reasonable scope as long as there is no extravagance in decoration and the person is not doing it to show arrogance and pride. If someone decorates his house with the intention of pride and arrogance then it is considered Makrooh Tahrimi. Extravagance is disliked in the least and prohibited in many instances.

And Allah knows best.
