This academic article aims at defining term “ Wasatiyah” in Islam and balancing between Islam in term of belief and concept of living in multicultural society. The study used data from the verses of Al-Qur’an and the prophetic tradition (Al-hadith) along with related documents namely books, journals in Thai, Malay and Arabic languages, presented in the form of content description. The study found that Islam approves the diversity of thoughts which must happened in any society and it is under the concept of divine destiny in Islam (Qadha/Qadar). The importance of freedom in accepting religions without enforcement, importance of preaching Islam to humankind and importance of giving prestige and value to the people.
