Moderation is a beautiful part of life that we have ignored, making our lives difficult. We have adopted extreme polarization, resulting in mounting difficulties.
Let me share a heartbreaking story where a 45-year-old man worked hard and tirelessly day & night for a company. During a board meeting, the man suffered a heart attack while delivering a presentation and died.
Although the fate of life and death is in the hands of Allah (the Creator), He also does not burden us beyond our capacity to bear. Thus, we should strive for equity and avoid extremes. Further, we should learn how to bring optimism in our lives.
Moderation in Islam means avoiding extremes and finding a balance in everything, including our worship, relationships, work, mental and physical health, and personal lives.
Following are the few verses in the Holy Quran where Allah guide us for adopting moderation in our daily lives.
Allah guides us in every walk of life, telling us to live moderately and avoid unnecessary spending, even in eating.
In our work and personal lives, Islam teaches us to be balanced and moderate in our behaviour. We should strive for success and excellence but also remember our obligations to Allah (SWT) and our families.
Here it is vital to share that one of the names of Muhammad (PBUH) was "Muktasad," which means "follower of the middle way." So, it is in humanity's best interests to follow the path of moderation.
