*BITE-SIZE TAFSIR*‬

Allah Says _(Al-Baqarah, ayah 143);_

وَكَذَٰلِكَ جَعَلْنَاكُمْ أُمَّةً وَسَطًا لِتَكُونُوا شُهَدَاءَ عَلَى النَّاسِ وَيَكُونَ الرَّسُولُ عَلَيْكُمْ شَهِيدًا.......

Thus We have made you a Wasat nation, that you be witnesses over mankind and the Messenger be a witness over you........)

Wasat means just and best. Allah has made this ummah just in all matters of religion and in the middle with regard to the Prophets, between those who exaggerated about them like the Christians, and those who shunned them like the Jews, because they believed in all of them in an appropriate manner.

And they are in the middle with regard to divine laws; they did not go to extremes like the Jews or neglect them like the Christians.

And with regard to purity and food, unlike the Jews whose prayers are not valid except in their own synagogues and who cannot be cleansed of impurity by water, so good things were forbidden to them as a punishment; and unlike the Christians who do not regard anything as impure or forbidden, rather they permitted everything that exists.

Rather the Muslims’ concept of purity and purification is the best and most perfect. Allah permitted to them (the Muslims) all good things with regard to food, drink, clothing and marriage and He forbade to them all that is impure and evil. Hence this ummah has the most complete religion, the noblest attitude and the best of deeds.

Allaah has bestowed upon them knowledge, forbearance, justice and kindness  such as He did not bestow upon any other nation.

Hence they are ummatan wasata, perfect and just, so that they may be “witnesses over mankind” because of their justice and fairness, so they will pass judgement over the people of all other religions, but no one else will pass judgement over them.

Whatever this ummah testifies is worthy of acceptance will be accepted, and whatever they testify is worthy of rejection will be rejected.
