How to Cite

Kamali, Mohammad Hashim. 2014. “A Lifestyle of Moderation, or Wasatiyyah: The Islamic Perspective”. Islam and Civilisational Renewal </Br> ICR Journal 5 (1). https://icrjournal.org/index.php/icr/article/view/384.


This article contains a review of the Islamic sources, the Qur’an and hadith, and a selection of scholarly opinion, on a variety of themes from eating and drinking, to speech and humour, to religiosity, work and leisure, art and music. The question in all of this is how to make wasatiyyah as a guide to conduct, personal lifestyle and social relations. Another question posed is whether Islam has visualised, if at all, a model personality that integrates the attributes of wasatiyyah.
