Abstract: Islam, in its internal content and in its external manifestations, faces many challenges posed by globalization. Most of the state communities in which Islam predominates do not have a democratic order, where religious segments play a major role in the country's politics. Islam has always respected differences. According to Islam, globalization should not mean uniformity. Islam teaches that Muslims must participate and invest in the processes of globalization. Many Islamic Religious Communities do not see globalization as an enemy but as an opportunity to promote and improve their role in the real world. Muslims around the world face the enormous challenges of modernism posed by globalization: how to be a modern Muslim in the Western world? how to place the Muslim in the gap between traditional forms of religiosity and modern styles of thought and behavior. These are all crucial questions that are asked not only by Muslims but also by other religions in the world because they are actors with their spiritual, intellectual, and moral engagement in the integrative process of achieving their cultural identity. Tradition and modernity can go together if modernization is an autonomous work and if the old is not destroyed but transformed. The reasons for the stagnation of the Islamic world in modernization are the mutual internal and external factors; rigid conservatism; cognition of economic passivation; the role of the ruling elites; the colonial and neo-colonial expansion and hegemony of the imperial powers in the Islamic world. Islamic modernism aims to recognize the two one-sidedness of Islamic teaching and practice: traditionalism and mystical intuitionism. In the 21st century, Muslims will continue to struggle with questions of identity, authority, and legitimacy.
