Moderation of Islam
****************
Religion wants from a believer to be totally occupied and concerned either with Allah or in life's affairs and makes balance, he shouldn't be so occupied by life that he forgets the duties of prayers, charity or say that he has no time to perform hajj (pilgrimage) although he has the money needed for that, he should make balance as Allah says:
"Neither of the east (i.e. neither it gets sun-rays only in the morning) nor of the west (i.e. nor it gets sun-rays only in the afternoon, but it is exposed to the sun all day long)," 24-35
This religion (Islam) is neither of the east nor of the west.
- Of the east is a signal to being totally occupied by the spirit like monasticism in Christianity.
- Of the west is a signal to being totally occupied by material like the Jews. Allah says:
"And you (O Muhammad) were not on the western side (of the Mount), when We made clear to Musa (Moses) the commandment," 28-44
Allah says about the first:
"When she (Mariam) withdrew in seclusion from her family to a place facing east." 19-16
She was totally occupied by worship, but we Muslims are working for both, Abdullah Ibn Masood narrated that the Gospel mentioned the description of the companions of the messenger of Allah (May the blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) as they are:
"Monks at nights and lions at days." 1
I.e. at nights they are as monks worshipping Allah and at days they are like wild animals earning their living to suffice themselves and their families so as not to need anything from people.
Imam Abul-Aza'im describes the youths of Islam, he said: "You see them at days like lions in magnanimous as Allah ordered earning their legal living. At nights they are as monks remembering their Lord as drunken witnessing and remembering Allah."
When do they sleep? Allah suffices them by few breaths to compensate their bodies and renew their cells, tissues, activity and strength.
Our master Omar didn't use to sleep at nights nor at days except moments between noon and afternoon, they said to him: "O Amir Al-Mo'meneen (Prince of believers), have mercy upon yourself," he says: "I made my day for my people and my night for my Lord, if I sleep at day, I will oppress my people, and if I sleep at night, I will oppress myself."
Although our master Abu-Haneefa was a scholar and he had a school to teach Fiq'h "jurisprudence", he used to work and earn his living, he was trading in silk, by the blessing of knowledge, he used to open his shop nearly for an hour and Allah sends him what suffice him at the day, he is contented by this and didn't look forward to tomorrow, when did he use to sleep? He used to sleep a short time after the noon prayer, then he gets up again to teach jurisprudence.

1- Narrated by At'tabarany in Mojam'ma Az'zawa'ed by Abdullah Ibn Masood, it also says: "They dress at their waists, they wash their limbs, their Gospels (books) are in their chests, they line up for prayers as they stand in battles, they offer me their blood as their sacrifice, they are monks at nights and lions at days."
