Abstract

Global peace and Global unity are the utmost requirements of the Muslims residing in different geographical regions of the world in order to emerge as one unit in the global village. In other words, the absence of peace and unity among Muslims of the world would end in the annihilation of our true representation. The role of Globalization in the present era is quite eminent that highlights its ability to work as a catalyst in initiating, promoting, and strengthening Muslims across different Cultures as well as defining new horizons. This process is catalyzed by the eminent power of media that reaches out to almost every person and house in this world. The paper highlights the literature developments of the Islamic unity and peace in the light of teachings of Islam and Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) along with the role of Globalization in relation to Muslims of the Ummah at large. The paper embraces the descriptive approach to highlight the ways to promote unity and peace along with the solutions to the problems of the Muslims on the whole and a hopeful message to the media of the world to change their operational strategies for Muslims and try to promote the true and healthy side of our religion that demands nothing but Global Peace and Unity.  Moreover, different recommendations are given to speed up the process.
