The impact of globalization in the muslim community

The emigration and settlement of Muslims from more than seventy nations to the West has been of some concern. It also helped craft a corpus of polemical literature written by both Muslims and Christians, each seeking to demonstrate and proclaim the truth and superiority of their own religion.

The colonial experience that initially pitted various European powers against one another in their quest to subjugate Muslims and monopolize their economic resources lasted until after the end of the second world war.

Religion and Globalisation: Benefits and Challenges

To achieve this level of thinking, management and practice, the scientific approach to planning and implementation must be adopted, within the framework of a true Islamic, cooperation, coordination and solidarity, since the burden is too big for a single state among the Islamic states to bear.

This news analysis draws upon book articles, online resources, and interviews to interpret the varying Muslim perspectives on globalization. On the one hand, information availability and a growing-diversity in Western societies has nudged even privileged youth in the United States and Europe to view developing countries more as people rather than as economic resources, albeit sometimes with an eye to future consumer markets.

For some this change threatens to alter the ethnic and religious composition of their nation-states, their democratic and capitalist traditions, and their liberal social values. Global consumerism is now forming a homogeneous global culture where indigenous cultures of the South are being replaced by Western cultures.

In other words, expressing faith as something that is truly ecumenical and universal. The major challenges can be summarized as follows I saw it fit to start with culture, as it is the cornerstone of the civilizational edifice of peoples and nations, and as it is the platform to which we refer when we deal with the challenges of globalization in order to achieve our interests: Had the 13th Amendment been implemented in the proper manner by way of granting land powers and allocating adequate funds to its needs, Sri Lanka would have witnessed some functional autonomy for efficiency gains with the passage of time and the impression that Federalism would lead to separation would have gradually disappeared.

The topic of globalization has both intensely positive and negative connotations in the Muslim world. Federal countries throughout the world have strengthened the Provincial governments with constitutional provisions, making it a co-partner in a Federal system, paving way for inter-governmental co-operation.

Globalization and the Muslim Society

Islam is not anti-globalization or modernity, which is considered to be a by-product of globalization in its original sense, but Muslims do have a problem with Westernization. In such a complex situation, the task before the MS-led government is whether the Islamic politicians with this double standard would cause any obstacles, though globalization has the force of reconciliation.

For example, gender relations and dress codes for Muslim women are structured in different ways in Muslim countries like Indonesia, Saudi Arabia, Turkey and Uzbekistan. Moreover, while globalization occurs through the free will of different communities, Westernization is chracteristically imposed upon other regions.

The Globalization of Islam

Globalization has popularized the consumer culture. The international community expected the moderate Islamists, who have been woven into the fabric of global culture, to look forward and abandon the backward ideologies. The stances of states normally express their choices and translate their policies.

When a Western wears suit, he is never aware of it. The global entertainment industry is propagating a superficial American pop culture, which titillates the senses and deadens the spirit. These challenges also involve the nature of the relationship between citizens and the government authorities, as well as governance at large.

Meanwhile, more than one-fourth of the Muslims in the world continue to live under non-Islamic rule. Globalization aids the removal of national controls over cross-border financial flows.

Such experiences reveal not only what is common among Muslims but also what is different. At the same time, globalization has given many Muslim populations access to greater knowledge and increased communication.

Although poverty has been reduced to a certain extent, new economic disparities have been created.Malay-Muslim community in Malaysia is losing their religious identity within the wave of globalization, and there is fear that their grip on religious values will continue to loosen, and in today’s moral climate, may no longer be salvageable.

Globalization, Religion and Islam Mohammad Reza Aram Because of its great impact on culture, economics and politics, this paper seeks to review different dimensions and aspects of globalization and the Islamic concept of it by using descriptive-analytical method and some verses of Qur’an.

The impact of modernity and globalization cannot be ignored, which has become one of the most controversial issues in contemporary Islamic architecture.

In recent years there have been a considerable number of papers and books regarding the dialogue between old and new or modernity and tradition, which emphasize the role of these challenges in our life.

Globalization’s Challenge to Islam The telephone, satellite television and the Internet have connected the Islamic community of billion people across the globe.

This connectivity has strengthened Muslims' sense of belonging to one community, which Islamic scholars call ummah. Other scholars, noting the fact that Islam has modified the religious composition of western Europe and become its second largest religion, have begun to talk about “the new Europe.” The second major Muslim encounter with “the West” was with Catholic Christianity during the crusades and the Reconquista.

Since globalization transforms the human conditions in matters affecting economic, social and political aspects, such an adoption of the new way of life is viewed with suspicion by backward thinking community especially the Islamic community, for it shatters their false belief that Islam is destined to rule and dominate the world.
