Islamic world has refers to the worldwide community of moslems. This community number about 1.3 - 1.5 billion people, roughly one-fifth of the world population. This community is spread across many different nations and ethnic groups connected by religion and a shared sense of humanity.
In a historical or geopolitical sense the term usually refers collectively to moslem majority countries or countries in which Islam dominates politically. Moslem history involves the history of the Islamic faith as a religion, and as a social institution.
The history of Islam began in Arabia with The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) first recitations of The Holy Qur'an in the 7th century. The Caliphate grew rapidly geographically expansion of moslem power well beyond the Arabian peninsula in the form of a vast moslem empire with an area of influence that stretched from northwest India, across Central Asia, the Middle East, North Africa, southern Italy, and the Iberian Peninsula, to the Pyrenees.
The Islamic Empire significantly contributed to globalization during the Islamic Golden Age, when the knowledge, trade, and economies from many previously isolated regions, and civilizations began integrating due to contacts with moslem explorers, sailors, scholars, traders, and travelers. This helped establish the Islamic Empire as the world's leading extensive economic power throughout the 7th-13th centuries. Several contemporary medieval Arabic reports also suggest that moslem explorers from al-Andalus (Spain) may have travelled in expeditions across the Atlantic Ocean between the 9th and 14th centuries.
Now, many peoples in West world have Islamic phobia. They manifest their phobia in attack to moslem peoples in West world, and Islamic world. The U.S.-led "war on terrorism" has been a war on Islam. In 2009, in his first formal television interview as USA President, Barack Obama, addressed the Islamic world for a new partnership, "based on mutual respect and mutual interest." But until now, moslem peoples in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Palestine still oppressed by NATO and Israel.

Orang yang ngaku islam sendiri banyak yang phobia terhadap agamanya sendiri, apalagi agama luar?
Kacian sekali mereka, masak phobia terhadap agama sendiri?
