It has been 6 years since the terrorist attack on the Twin Towers, and in that time 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 phenomenon but rather a social and political one. The paper will address questions regarding the supposed link between terrorism and the Muslims.

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 which is not true but how certain Muslims advocate their own fanatical version of Islam and believe to kill oneself through suicide is justified in Islam – neither of these positions are supported by Islam or the Koran but are upheld by certain misled Muslims in the world whose positions and practices have led to the downfall of the Muslims integrity amongst the international community. This paper will look at the ideal Islam and Muslim when raising and answering questions in regards to terrorism.
