Religion and the Project of Globalizing Challenges and Opportunities
The process of globalization can be studied in the fields of economy, politics and culture. The present article aims to study the effects of the emergence of information and communication technologies on religious values. The main question here is what are the effects of the emergence of information and communication technologies on religious values? After distinguishing globalization from the project of westernization and Americanization, I will deal with the relationship between globalization and religion and globalization and Islam through analyzing the outcomes of globalization and information and communication technologies optimistically, pessimistically and in a combined fashion. The present evidences and findings show that although globalization has some negative outcomes, it has promoted the unified Islamic nation and has made Islamic countries closer to each other. In fact, what I claim here is that globalization is inevitable; although it has brought about some challenges and crises, and has been directed by the western imperialism, the globalization has paved the way for the development of a religious network, and the identification and unification of Muslims. Taking advantage of present situation can lead to the globalization of Islam.
