MODERATION Arabic iqtisad اقتصاد
According to Muhammad’s teaching, moderation in all religious matters is better than excessive piety, and a chapter in the Traditions is devoted to the subject. He is related to have said:-
“The best act in God’s sight is that which is constantly attended to, although in a small degree.”
“Do what you are able conveniently; because God will not be tired of rewarding as long as you are not tired of doing.”
“You must continue at your prayers as long as it is agreeable to you, and when you are tired sit down,”
“Verily, religion is easy, therefore hold it firm” (See Mishkat, Babu ‘l-Iqisad.)
