Ummah, community, or nation, is a special name given to Muslim brotherhood and unity. The Qur’an refers to Muslims as the best Ummah raised for the benefit of all mankind (3:110). At another place, (2:143), it calls them ‘the middle nation’ (Umma Wasat) a unique characteristic of the Islamic community which has been asked to maintain equitable balance between extremes, pursue the path of moderation and establish the middle way.
