It has been 6 years since the terrorist attack on the Twin Towers and in them six years the world has learnt that Muslims play a major part in extremists acts around the world. It is alleged by numerous western scholars that Islam creates a premise that allows Muslims to terrorise unbelievers. The paper will make the reader learn and understand that terrorism is not a religious phenomena but rather a social and political one. The paper will set to answer the questions regarding the link placed by many scholars between terrorism and Islam. The paper is not only to bring new knowledge to the field and teach the academics but also for those that believe that terrorism was fashioned through the decorative calligraphy of the Koran and that believe to kill oneself through suicide is justified in Islam – neither positions are supported by Islam or the Koran despite the current minute following of Muslims of this premise in the world, this paper will look at the ideal Islam when raising and answering questions in regards to terrorism.
