Abstract

The second-largest and fastest-growing religion today is Islam. It is the only religion on which countries such as Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, and others have been founded, with Sharia law serving as the rule of law. There are now concepts like the "green peril," which refers to Khomeini of Iran who is armed with extreme beliefs and determined to wage a jihad against Western culture. Because of the revolution in Iran, the West has not been able to truly comprehend and appreciate Islam and Muslims, for whom Islam is not simply a religion but also a way of life. This research aims to critically examine and comprehend the causes of the WEST’s failure to understand its Muslim counterparts, which has fostered an atmosphere of hostility and established a level of disparity between the Muslim world and the rest. The "othering" of one another is also discussed as case studies of various political encounters between the West and Muslims as examples. For the West to preserve its hegemony and global dominance, we will examine why it must comprehend the Muslim world, as well as why it is high time for it to revise its strategy and approach.
