“Religious moderation and balanced personality are among the most important demands sought by all societies. However, meeting such a demand has become a major problem and resulted in the absence of civilized witnesses of the nation of Islam, which depends mainly on the moderation. Almighty Allah said: “And thus have We willed you to be a community of the middle way, so that with your lives you might bear witness to the truth before all mankind,” (Baqarah:143).

Although there is a great debate on how to solve this problem, promote religious moderation and build a balanced personality, this issue still needs to be addressed and analyzed accurately, in order to provide a deeper understanding and a clear plan of action on how to meet this demand. “
