Can the believer benefit from material things of the world without any limit?

SHAFAQNA – Can we use material gifts and worldly life as much as we are able to? Or is there any limit in here? For example if we avoid “Harams”, can we now benefit from all “Halals” without any limitation? It must be said here: It is not like this, that the human being can use all the Halal and legitimate blessings of the world as much as he/she wants; rather the human being’s usage of Halal things must be according to his/her needs. Meaning, the human being must use the material tools to a limit and enjoy using natural blessings as they prolong his/her life, and the material life leads the human being to moderation; in a way that the human being should not make life difficult to a point where his/her life is in danger, nor to sink in lusts and over-enjoyment causing him/her to neglect the hereafter [1].
