Muslims and Globalisation

E-mail Print PDF

Generally, when we speak of “Muslims” in the context of “Globalisation”, many Muslims and non-Muslims tend to consider this phenomenon from the point of how Muslims might fitintothegeneral scheme of things.

Those I have spoken to, when asked for their thoughts on “Muslims and globalization” tend to speak on how Muslims might embrace “moderation”, how they might ‘fitin’,howtheymightbe “more open to Western perspectives” or “culture”, or how they might “integrate”, amongst others. Whilst they do, later, speak on the need to maintain their culture, the “fitting-incomplex”seemstobe predominant. They are, in other words, “assimilationist” in their approach.

“Read in the name of your Lord Who has created, He has created man from a clot of blood. Read and your Lord is the Most Generous, Who has taught by the pen, He has taught man that which he knew not.” (The Holy ’Qura~n, Chapter of Al‘ala’q, verses 1-5)

These are the first words of ’Qura~n revealed to Prophet Mu’hammad (May Allaah’s peace and blessings be upon him). They began a tradition that became embedded in Islaam. Read, seek knowledge, and know your Creator.
