The Grand Imam: Moderation is one of the most prominent characteristics of Islam

His Eminence Dr. Ahmed Al-Tayeb, the Grand Imam of Al-Azhar and Chairman of the Muslim Council of Elders has clarified during his Ramadan television program ‘Al Imam Al-Tayeb’, that moderation is one of the most prominent characteristics of Islam and hence Islam is known as the “religion of moderateness”, as per the Quranic verse, <Thus, We have made of you an Ummah that is justly balanced>, which affirms the Muslim Ummah’s position.

His Eminence added, “In this verse, Allah described Muslims as a nation guided on the correct path as opposed to other nations who strayed from it. The time had come for the leader of the Muslim world to lead humanity into safety which is proving to be correct in modern times. The world currently requires divine guidance to cure the social and moral ailments it currently suffers from.”
