The Hopes of Transitional Muslim States in the Milieu of Globalization
AbstractThis paper attempts to find out the answers of certain confusions and misunderstandings attached with the phenomenon of globalization and the aspirations of Muslim States in terms of localization of Islamic ideology and its effects. It discusses the challenges and threats which the ‘New World Order’ poses, exploitation of power, military potency, together with supremacy and control over the natural and economic resources of the world have transformed it into a uni-polar world. Muslims, all over the world are in a transitional phase, as they are still recovering from the debacle of Islam’s golden era and subsequently from the wreck of uncertainty of losing their ideological standpoint, and supremacy of the West engulfing the whole idea of globalization. This article is an inquiry into the aspirations of Muslim states and also how can they come out of the uncertainty and confusion, which this phenomenon encompasses. Through looking into the opinions and findings of renowned Muslim scholars and evaluating the current scenario it is relevant to mention here that Muslim thinkers and ardent supporters of Islamic Ideology fail to understand that the phenomenon of globalization is an offspring of the basic principles of Islam, as a religion of moderation and modification. There is nothing which cannot be addressed considering Quran and Sunnah. Moreover, consultations and deliberations can help Muslim States to achieve what they aspire to.
