The principles of Islamic faith explicitly and implicitly condemn terrorist acts and terrorism, as we read in the Holy Quran (Maidah: 32) about it. While condemning terrorism, in all its forms and manifestations, Islam makes a distinction between national freedom and anti-occupation movements and terrorism. Supporting the oppressed people of Palestine against Israeli atrocities is a crystal clear example for the above claim. However, the West has called this legitimate right of support an instance of terrorist act and has launched massive propaganda in this connection. In such a situation, the status of Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), as a pervasive international Islamic organization, is very sensitive. Since OIC can clarify official stances of Islamic states as an official international organization, studying OIC stance vis-à-vis terrorism will be a great help in presenting an overall image of the attitude of the world of Islam toward this ill phenomenon. Our key question in this paper centers round modalities of OIC stance vis-à-vis terrorism and the subordinate question will be paying attention to Islamic jurisprudence literature. In this research paper, we will discuss major indexes on fighting terrorism that are available in the OIC documents, specially the OIC Convention on Combating Terrorism.
