The term globalization has been one of the most widely used words in the field of economic, cultural, political, domestic and international politics in the past two decades, and has been the subject of academic and journalistic discussions. Despite the widespread use of the word "globalization" in the contemporary political world literature, its meaning is still controversial, and depending on what angle and attitude it is looked at, there will be a different meaning and concept that the emergence of various terms such as “Globalization”, “Westernization”, and “Americanization” in many societies, including Iran, express this. There are different approaches to the nature of globalization. Globalization as a process and globalization as a project are two common approaches to this phenomenon. In this research, using the Lacla and Mouffe discourse analysis model, Islam's perspective on globalization is examined. According to religious studies, it is acknowledged that in Islam, as in other discourses, there are perceptions that are consistent with globalization and even the future of the world, although globalization in the Islamic conception of the current globalization phenomenon, both in defining and in goals and methods have fundamental differences. It can be said that globalization, from the perspective of Islam, is a procedural perspective and it is not presupposed. This article seeks to explain the relationship between Islam and this concept with reflection on Qur'an and narrations.
