RM 29.75 RM 35.00

Wasatiyyah (or the principle of moderation and balance) is an important but somewhat neglected aspect of Islamic teachings that has wide-ranging ramifications in almost all areas concerning Islamic civilisation. 'Moderation' as defined here is a moral virtue relevant not only to personal conduct but also to integrity and self-image of communities and nations. It is an aspect of the self-identity and worldview of the Muslim community, or ummah, that is also valued in all major world religions and civilisations.
