A book of moderation


Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad compares the Holy Quran with other holy scriptures and shows that whereas the Torah and the New Testament each teach extremes the Holy Quran teaches moderation.

Verse 2:143 calls Muslims “ummati wustai”. This is usually translated as “exalted nation”. I disagree with this. I believe it means a moderate people. So Islam enjoins moderation on Muslims. This is not just in religious matters but also secular matters. So we must avoid extravagance in celebrating all functions, in our behaviour and so on.
