||This article discusses modernity in relation to the Islam. Many Islamic countries have to deal with poverty and internal conflicts.
Looking at these countries, one might say that Islam is an obstruction to modernity, development and democracy. 'Islam and
modernity' could be seen as a 'contradictio in terminus'. However, this conclusion is too blunt. The reality of the relation
between Islam and modernity is much more complex than this. Knowledge of this complex relation is essential, especially for
people that are involved in the development of Islamic countries and Human Rights.
