`Islam teaches Muslims to practice non-food consumption based on Islamic teaching and values. Some Muslims have followed Islamic teaching in daily non-food consumption, while other Muslims have consumptive behavior in their daily consumption. This study, therefore, conducted a study within Muslim society in Palu city Indonesia to understand their non-food consumption pattern from an Islamic perspective. The objective of this study is to provide insight regarding Muslim consumption compliance with Islamic teaching. This study was carried out with a qualitative method, and the data were gathered through in-depth interviews with the local religious Muslim citizens and direct observation. The results of this study show that Muslim communities have followed Islamic teaching in their daily non-food consumption by prioritizing primer non-food needs. However, some Muslims also consumed excessive non-food things such as clothes due to being influenced by the trend in mode. Muslim scholars have played important roles in educating Muslim communities to practice consumption based on Islamic teaching. The limitation of this study is that we did not consider economic growth but we only focused on the appropriateness of non-food consumption according to Islamic law perspective. Further study may focus on Muslim community consumption by considering Islamic economic calculation.
