  Globalization and the NationalIdentity:An Islamic Perspective   ByDr. Mazin S. Motabagani Associate Professor Orientalistics Al-Madinah Center for the Study of Orientalismwww.medinacenter.org             Introduction Once the notion “globalization” became widespread anddiscussed widely by intellectual circles, the idea of the nationalidentity being in danger was one of the main themes of discussion.Learned people all over the world voiced their apprehensionand fear that “globalization” is just another name for westernization or Americanization”. When you consult the internet on ‘globalization andculture’ you will find thousands of sites on this topic surpassing allother topics in the field of globalization.But in Islam even though such fear and apprehension exists,the basics for maintaining and protecting the Islamic identity are firmlyestablished in the scriptures of Islam (Qura’an and Sunnah) and thebehavior of the first generations of Islam (that is the prophet’scompanion and the early period of Islam.)This paper will be divided into two sections: The first will lookbriefly into the definition of Globalization and its relation to nationalidentity.The second will look into the methods globalization tries to alter or affect the national or Muslim identity and the sources for the basicprinciples governing the way a Muslim identifies himself.
