Abstract

I will begin by posing a question: Are there any indicators to tell us that Islam anchors itself in the middle path of moderation, to show, in other words, that wasatiyyah is the governing principle of Islam?

Islam’s advocacy of wasatiyyah is, first of all, known by the explicit affirmation of the Qur’an, when it designates the Muslim community as a community of the middle path (ummatan wasatan) (al-Baqarah, 2:143). This Qur’anic designation is espoused with a commitment for the Ummah to act as witnesses for truth and serve the cause of justice.
