The Principles of Moderation
This study aims to derive the principles that can be used to assess moderation from a Shariah perspective and consequently to safeguard the notion of Islamic moderation from trends that deviate from Islamic principles under the guise of moderation. These days moderation is synonymous of complete submission to international laws even if they contradict Sharia. This undoubtedly contradicts the true concept of moderation, which as revealed in the study means adhering to the Islamic principles without extremism or negligence. The study concludes that the most important principles for achieving moderation at both the individual and collective levels of the Muslim community lies in adherence to Quran and Sunnah while avoiding extremism and negligence. Descriptive, analytical, and historical methods of research have been used in this research article.
