Islamic fundamentalism is no longer a phenomenon that only Islamic societies knew or belongs to a specific society, but it exceeded the local and international dimensions, and despite the concept's modernity, the emergence of its mechanisms and effects is considered a contemporary intellectual phenomenon that has its internal or international causes or dimensions (political, religious, social, psychological).  It was coupled with many radical and extremist concepts after its principles and intellectual sources were adopted from these concepts, despite the fact that some fundamentalist movements differed from each other in terms of goals, generations, discourse and communications.

 The confusion between fundamentalism and terrorism requires careful distinction between them and also requires and requires multidimensional treatments (intellectually, religiously, politically .......) and by rebuilding religious institutions so that they can carry out their functions or address the critically enlightened processes of transforming concepts and restoring reason and guidance To the administration of public affairs
