    Areas in which Islam has transformed different cultural elements from ethnically diverse nations into a specific education include North Africa, the Arabian Peninsula, including Syria and Palestine, the Euphrates and Tigris rivers, Asia Minor, Iran, Central Asia and Central India. In the past, Islam also played an important role in the Iberian or Balkan peninsulas and the island of Sicily, from where it was pushed out by changing political conditions. The East Indian archipelago as well as Central and East Africa are also characterized by a high number of Muslims. However, they contributed very little to the political or cultural development of Islam.

    In the 18th century, the reformist movement Wahhabism began to develop in the inland region of Najd, named after its founder, Imam Mohamed ibn Abd al-Wahhab ( 1703-1787 ). He " required strict monotheism, rejecting the cult of saints and the Prophet Muhammad as a manifestation of polytheism, proclaiming the restoration of original social practice and Islam based on the literal wording of the Qur'an and Sunnah, ie sets of sayings and stories of traditions ascribed to Muhammad. The demand for a return to the old and simple way of life or the condemnation of usury gained the support of Wahhabism, especially for small-scale farming. "

    We consider Islam to be the youngest monotheistic religion. It represents "the same Truth " that God has revealed to every nation through His prophets. His followers acknowledge the importance of Judaism and Christianity in the history of prophecy, but believe that the pinnacle of revealing God's will was reached through the Prophet Muhammad. From a religious point of view, the word Islam means " surrendering to the will of God and submitting to His commandments ." Believers profess a religion of peace, mercy, and justice, and the vast majority disagree with extremist manifestations or terrorism. " But Islam is not and has never been just a religion. Rather, it is a holistic way of life that defines the right moral, political, and economic behavior of both individuals and nations and states. "

    Undoubtedly, one of the most significant benefits of the Islamic religion is the fact that it has been able to unite economically, socially, ethnically or religiously fragmented tribes. Therefore, the basic principle of this monotheistic youngest religion is Unity. However, since its inception, Islam has influenced not only the social sphere in the life of every Muslim, but as a holistic way of life it has also had a significant impact on the political and economic behavior of individuals, nations and states.
