According to the author, the problems of globalization challenges cannot be considered without due account of the tendencies in the development of modern Islamic thought. For, the ideological factor has a specific meaning for the Muslim world where any serious changes and national-scale projects are assessed through the prism of initial principles of Islam. Moreover, they simply cannot succeed without Islamic substantiation.
The article studies the combination of Islamic traditions and Western standards and liberal values, which is characterized as rather controversial. Moreover, the controversies between Islamic and Western approaches are sometimes inevitable. For that reason, L.Syukiainen believes that conceptually it is important to distinctly see the limits of their mutual adaptation and especially alignment. However, the principal possibility to overcome their discrepancies remains, whereas the bounds of bringing together the positions of both sides are far from being achieved.
