Abstract

It is frequently said that the religion of Islam was first presented and understood as a salvational doctrine of peace through outward submission and inner surrender. The most essential value at the heart of Islam may be characterised as ‘security/peace’ (see the quranic terms silm and salm). Today this assertion is radically questioned by many non-Muslims, who emphasise the combative role of a militant faith intent on conquest and dominion - a medieval European perception now cultivated among intelligence and security establishments countering terrorism.
