Our Balanced Moderate Life (Moderation In Focus)

Between permissiveness and restrictiveness Islam stands:

And do not make your hand (as) chained to your neck or extend it completely and (thereby) become blamed and insolvent. (Al-Israa’ 17:29)

And in the middle between the nations the Muslims stand as an example for all people.

Our Islamic Moderate Life …

In everything; relationships, acts of worship, customs, transactions, social life and human desires, Islam is the religion of moderation and balance.

It is a sublime divine approach that protects man from leaning to one of the two extremes as it sets up all kinds of relationships on the basis of equilibrium and moderation.

Doesn’t this sound like high-flown rhetoric? Where does moderation exactly stand in the life of the true Muslim?
