When it comes to maturity, one of the most important characteristics is moderation. Furthermore, moderation's importance to society as a whole, as a human trait, and as a security component of a particular state highlights its value in achieving a balance between the individual and the group and between religions and the rest of the world. Although moderation is based on sound and solid knowledge, it must be used with caution. One reason for this relevance is that moderation should reject fanaticism and instead rely on evidence and influence. It is only through "Wasatiya," or a moderate approach, that Arab and Islamic countries can avoid the loss that threatens their present and future because the truth is lost between two distant parties: extremism and negligence. Speaking at the Wasatiya Conference on May 27th, 2019, His Royal Highness Prince Khaled Al-Faisal affirmed Saudi Arabia's responsible positions in establishing moderation within the Islamic world. Education in Saudi Arabia follows an Islamic/legal curriculum that emphasizes students' spiritual, social, and scientific development. As a result, this issue is prioritized above all others. In order to prevent excess or neglect in young people, parents and educators must adhere to this concept of moderation in their instruction (Bakir & Othman, 2017). "Work for this world as if you never existed, and work for your hereafter as if you die tomorrow," Ibn Omar said in a hadith. As a result, a Muslim's character must be moderated to balance this life and the next since this world is viewed spiritually as a path leading to the next. As a result, there is no conflict in working for both of them to achieve happiness.
