Role of Moderation in all Walks of Life
Additional wealth, if at all is received by him some way, may be consumed in the pathway of Allah Almighty on assistance and release of the deprived people. Likewise, in the feasting and expenditure of prosperity, the believer is suggested to strike equilibrium dodging stinginess and indulgence. Scrooge is he who does not even offer for the authentic requirements of himself and his domestic let alone spending on generous and noble reasons.
Extravagant or spend frugality is an individual who spends his wealth in luxury, betting, drinking, and on lavish spending, on festivities, marriages, day to day surviving. Islam convicts both stinginess and indulgence and enjoins upon a supporter to workout restraints? The Holy Qur’an rises those who exercise self-control in expenditure when it speaks and those who when they devote, are neither wasteful nor reluctant; and there is ever a secure position between the two. Other worships like Umrah also teach person to control whimsical desires.
Islam counsel self-control in the presentation of religious routines also. One must not be firm on himself in the substances of adoration like prayer, fasting, etc. Once the Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be upon Him) erudite that some friends had taken a promise to fast during the day, pass the night in adoration, refrain from meat and fat and relinquish contact with female. this is not my dogma. Your body has obligations over you. You should abstain, but eat and drink also. Pray at night, but slumber also. Look at me.
Even in substances of everyday life, Islam demands its believers to evade excesses and follow belief of equilibrium. In matter of nourishment one should neither yield too much nor too less; rather one should eat and drink, just rendering to his bodily requirements to keep himself healthy.
