Abstract

The Muslim world is in an exceptionally difficult situation, for it is engaged in several conflicts. Contemporary wars among Muslims have led a large portion of the Muslim world to complete chaos. At the same time, that world has been engaged in conflicts of different kinds with the West, regardless of whether it is attacked by the army of a Western country or is engaged in an ideological conflict, since Islamophobia is becoming stronger, even in the countries of the West which have not deployed their troops to Muslim countries. The Text contains potentials and explications that, in a correct understanding and through efficient action, can make the Muslim world a positive subject also in contemporariness. Amongst such potentials of the Text, the principle of contextualization has a special place, for it is a principle that the Qur’an has elevated to the highest level and affirmed it by its own gradual entrance to the world, or to the Context that partially adopted, and much more upgraded and changed it.
