Abstract


Today's Muslims are facing the most crucial time of history since the last few decades. They are victimized by the irresponsible streotyping attitude due to September 11, 2001 and the London Bombing on 7th July, 2005.

It has become a common fashion that Muslims are being charged with terrorism for every single terrorist acts in any part of the world. Western criticisms towards Islam seem to have increased more than ever before. Muslims are being terrorized in the name of 'anti-terrorism' everywhere, as a result, Muslims suffer in almost all countries of the world.

Islamic organizations, vastly in the poor and affected Muslim nations, like Afghanistan, Palestine and many others, have been shut down and restricted; their offices have been raided; the officers are held for trials and tribunals besides the ongoing 'security' measures taken against the Muslims. Muslims are being laughed at as 'culprits' and 'terrorists.'

This paper discuss the issue of terrorism, its causes, Islamic funda­mentalism and Jihad in relation to terrorism and its overall impacts on Islamic charity organizations. Finally, it suggests some steps required for muslim to face the today's challenge.
