"Seeking the middle path (Al-wasaṭiyya): articulations of moderate Islam" (Conferentie)

Datum
woensdag 19 juni 2019
Tijd
09:00 tot 
Locatie
Aula, Radboud University


"In the last decade, the often reductionist view of jihād and sharīa has become the face of what and who the Muslims are. This view is further advanced by the loud number of Islamist groups that adopt highly antagonistic or repressive readings of jihād and sharīa. There are numerous counter-arguments by the Muslim to demonstrate that such views and readings are unqualified to become the representative interpretations of the message of Islam. Often such effort is received tepidly and—at best— simply ignored. However, there is a bigger effort from the majority Muslim groups though slowly but surely of promoting a concept whose relevance must be pointed out in order to bring to the fore groups larger and more relevant than the extremist elements. This is the concept of ‘moderation’ or wasaiyya in Arabic. Notably, this concept is placed as being of central relevance to understanding the silent majority of Muslims.
Despite the debates about what it means to have a ‘moderate’ Islam, there has been a demand among citizens across the globe that religious believers—Muslim in particular—promote moderation and tolerance. Undoubtedly, this way of understanding remains challenged by a number of conservative groups who seek out a literal approach to the Divine texts. The main thing that different Islamic denominations theorists unanimously agree on is the need to stay away from the ‘margins’ and ‘extremes’ of religion, and remain in a middle position. Exceeding those borders would provoke misconceptions, and effectively it will take us away from the core of the faith.
This conference seeks to define and understand the concept of al-wasaiyya and then—considering the scriptural sources—seeking to illustrate where it can find the concept of moderation in the people’s daily lives as well as in the state’s affairs; how moderation is defined and the way in which the centrality of the Islamic message relies upon the correct interpretation and practice of moderation."
