The Lost Connection and Divergent Identities: The Case of Turks and Arabs
The international system generated a different code for identities. Arabs and Turks identified themselves by their own nation state. As a result, they stopped sharing common values and drifted away from the very sources of Islam that once united them. A new version of religion based on the construction of nation-states began to emerge. This state of affairs led to the construction of new religious systems in which contact with other nations was lost. As Dostoyevsky put it, each nation created a new God peculiar to herself only. Had these nation-states obeyed the same God, there would have been no need for the existence of nation-states.
