abstract
The rapport between democracy and Islam has come to the attention of the world as an incredibly pertinent issue of our time. Can these two very powerful entities, the Muslim nations, and the West peacefully coexist? The connection between democracy and Islam is complex partially because the Muslim world is not at all ideologically monolithic and democracy is certainly not easily defined or implemented. Two extremes lead some to deny the possibility of a positive connection between Islam and democracy and others to purport that Islam requires democracy. In-between the two extremes a more compromising attitude suggests that even though the political systems are not explicitly defined as Islamic in the Muslim world, Islam is still a support for democracy. Democratization and religious resurgence are two of the most important themes in world affairs. The characteristics of democracy, Islamic Law and their relationships were defined and researched. Case Studies from specific countries around the world were used to illustrate the reality of the subject. Specific findings led to the imperative idea that the future relationship between Democracy and Islam depends on the understanding and education of both the West and the Islamic nations.
