Abstract

The concept of moderation is one of the core basic words and frequently discussed subjects in Islam. It has been employed since the inception of Islam and is a major feature of Islamic creed. This concept is based on the Arabic term al-wasatiyyah that indicates "middle." It presents a fair, just, and efficient solution. Its goal is to encourage a well-balanced way of living that eliminates extremes and enables people to enjoy things in moderation. As a result, the goal of this research is to first determine the Quranic concept of wasatiyyah, and then to analyze its numerous distinct features drawn from the verses of the Holy Quran. The word appears throughout the Qur'an in a variety of settings, with all of the word forms revolving around similar linguistic connotations. Using the content analysis method, this qualitative study used an exploratory and descriptive design. A library search was used to conduct the content analysis. Quran, Sunnah, Classical/contemporary jurists' books and journals were used as sources. To identify and examine the concept of al-wasatiyyah in the Holy Quran, its features, and proof of moderation in Islam, the content analysis method is applied. This research is noteworthy because it underscores the Quranic principle of moderation, which instructs man to strike a balance among physical and spiritual requirements, as well as moderation in religion and prayer.
