I wanted to understand what is recommended and is not recommended.

So in Muharam and Safar, we do not participate in any of sort of celebration however after the tailback of Safar, are mini local getaways allowed? I know nothing is technically prohibited but it’s more on the basis of recommendation. Can we purchase clothes? If we wanted too? We usually don’t do anything for 2 months and 8 days but I want a scholars point of view.

There is no prohibition on gathering or buying things per se. It is not done out of respect for the tragedy of Ahl al-Bayt. Thus, if any such act causes disrespect then it should not be done. Other than that, people should proceed within reason
