Misconception can be defined as a view or opinion that is incorrect because it is based on faulty thinking or understanding. It is part of peoples view regarding some matters such as belief, religion and so on. Nowadays, we can see there are a lot of misconceptions about Islam and its teaching. So, in order to give the best understanding regarding Islamic religion, let us first look at the root word for Islam, which came from word salam which means peace or safety. Hence misconception towards Islam could be defined as incorrect opinion about Islam based on faulty thinking or understanding. These misconceptions have form faulty thinking among non-Muslim regarding Islam. These misconceptions prevent the non-Muslims from seeing the beauty of Islam.  It is the duty of Muslims to help clear misconceptions that non-Muslims have regarding Islam.

         In order to answer the misconceptions regarding Islam, Muslim first need to refer the holy book of Quran, and the Sunnah, as mentioned in surah An’ Nisa ,Verse 59
“O you who have believed, obey Allah and obey the Messenger and those in authority among you. And if you disagree over anything, refer it to Allah and the Messenger, if you should believe in Allah and the Last Day. That is the best [way] and best in result”
From this verse, it is clear that if anyone disagrees over anything, we need to refer it to Allah, via Al-Quran, and The messenger, via As-Sunnah, as it is the best way to find best result. The Qur'an presented a belief in the universal existence of God, one God for all. It does not discriminate against peoples; it says we may be different colors and from different tribes, but we are all human and "the best of people are the most God-conscious".
         We would try to respond to the misconception regarding Islam by providing evidence (dalil) and facts from the Quran and Hadith(As-Sunnah) to support our argument.

Western Misconceptions

(3) Islam is a religion of fanaticism, fatalism and polygamy
(4) “Modernity” is the product of the West and the Islamic world cannot be truly modern until Islam is radically reformed
 (5)Islam is oppressive against women and minorities
(6)Islam is incompatible with human rights, pluralism and political tolerance
(7) Islam is a religion which is militantly anti-Western, exposes violence, and is very much inclined to wars

As a conclusion, in order to give the best understanding about Islam, let us look at the root word for Islam, which came from word salam which means peace or safety. The word Islam itself clearly reject many misconception that western created. To clear up the misconception, Muslims need to understand, that most of the misconception is already answered by Allah through Quran and by his messenger through Hadith and Sunnah. It is the duty of a Muslim to clear up the misconception to create a more comforting place for the Muslim in this world
