Abstract

Is there such a thing as ‘moderate Islam’, and if so, what form does it take? The events of September 11, 2001, and the subsequent Global War on Terror have led scholars to debate this issue intensively. This article proposes that the principle of ‘Wasaṭiyyah’ or moderation and balance may provide the key to a better understanding of Islam and inter-civilisational relations. Reference is made not only to canonical Islamic scriptures but also to the work of Islamic scholars and commentators throughout the ages..........

The basic theme of this presentation is to advance an understanding of Islam Hadhari, not only in its Malaysian context,... but also in the Muslim world generally. Notwithstanding many reservations expressed about Islam Hadhari here in Malaysia and elsewhere, the subject seems to have captured the Muslim imagination, especially since the electoral succes of the Hamas adn the Muslim Brotherhood in Palestine and Egypt in 2006, respectively, preceeded by similar developments in many other Muslim countries.
