This article looks at the globalization from both, conventional and Islamic perspectives. The concept of globalization, if implemented fairly, is in line with Islamic teaching. Therefore, it is important for the Muslims to examine its response towards globalization. Muslims must be able to identify the strategic issues with regard to globalization and develop concrete measures that are implementable, as well as to be able to differentiate between the positive and negative impact of globalization. More educational and economic cooperation must be established among Muslim countries, and Muslims need to engage in more scientific research in all areas of education, economy, science and technology. The Western scholars have interest in issues in the Muslim world. They look at these issues systemically and methodically, and they seemed to show an inclination towards an open attitude in accepting the relevance of Islam in the modern world. Therefore it is really important to have research cooperation with them.


artikel ini membicarakan tentang ‘globalisasi’ dari perspektif konvensyenal dan Islam. Konsep globalisasi sekiranya di laksanakan secara adil adalah sejajar dengan ajaran Islam. Justeru, umat Islam haruslah mengkaji tindak balas Islam terhadap globalisasi. Umat Islam haruslah mengenal pasti isu-isu strategik tentang globalisasi, dan menjana asas-asas yang dapat di laksanakan dalam konsep globalisasi, serta membezakan di antara kesan-kesan negatif dan positif globalisasi. Hal ini memerlukan lebih banyak kerjasama dalam bidang pendidikan dan ekonomi di antara negara-negara Islam, malah umat Islam sendiri haruslah lebih komited menjalankan penyelidikan saintifik dalam bidang pendidikan, ekonomi, sains dan teknologi. Para intelektual Barat nampaknya mempunyai minat dalam mengkaji isu-isu dalam dunia Islam, dengan mengambil pendekatan dan kaedah yang sistematik dalam mengkaji isu-isu ini, malah nampaknya mereka juga memperlihatkan keterbukaan untuk menerima Islam sebagai satu cara hidup yang releven dalam dunia moden. Justeru, amatlah penting sekali di jalankan penyelidikan bersama dengan mereka.
