Eating in luxurious restaurants?

In the name of Allah the beneficent the merciful 

Question: Peace be upon you your eminence Is it permissible to eat at expensive or luxurious restaurants? And what is the consequence of this act on the soul?

Answer:

Imagine one day that a poor hungry person shows up to you and he or she sees you eating at a restaurant some good food, that food that he may crave sometimes but he cannot afford, and he or she may feel disgraced for not being able to afford it. He or she may not say anything with the tongue however it may come from the heart, and this in return may harm the spirit of the poor hungry person. Therefore it is especially important for the student of knowledge and the spiritual wayfarer that he or she should pay attention to the poor spirit of the others including the poor people because it is possible that we may become poor one day and would not like to feel disgraced or hopeless. God knows best the intentions of the people, therefore we must always correct our intentions and make sure that we are feeding our soul and not our selfish desires and to make the intention for our actions for the sake of attaining nearness to Allah (SWT) .
