Abstract

This article analyzes the verses of religious moderation in
the Qur'an. The method used in this paper is conceptual
thematic with library research model. The results obtained
from the analysis of religious moderation verses are
optimizing the power of social media towards strengthening
religious moderation in Indonesia by presenting content
that is close to the community without eliminating the
values of religious moderation in it which can be packaged
in various forms, ranging from photo slides, short videos,
podcasts, and Islamic words and uploaded on platforms
that are often visited, such as YouTube, Instagram, Twitter,
and TikTok. In addition, it is important to underline that the
use of social media must be supported by a selective and
adaptive attitude in filtering the content that is absorbed
and that will be disseminated. The optimization of social
media in strengthening this diverse moderation must also adhere to the concept of Islam as rahmatan lil 'alamin and
al-Islamu Shalih likulli Zaman wa Makan.
