The Qur’an (al-Baqarah: 143 and other verses) calls on people to apply the method of Wasatiyyah. Wasatiyyah is presented in the text in different forms and meanings such as excellence, justice and moderation. In his magnum opus “Risale-i Nur”, Bediuzzaman Said Nursi, a prominent Islamic scholar who lived in late 19 th and first half of the 20 th century in Turkey, elaborately expounded faith and worship related and social issues in order to train individuals and societies that will apply the method of wasatiyyah and not engage in violence, extremism, radicalism and terrorism which unfortunately take place in the contemporary Muslim world. Bediuzzaman stresses the importance of the strength of iman in the sense that it is what makes a Muslim individual to implement his/her Islamic knowledge and stay firm and straight as Allah commands.
