One of the issues in contemporary Islamic thought which has attracted considerable attention amongst Muslim scholars and within the Muslim community is the valid and appropriate attitude of Muslims to relationships with non-Muslims. A major source of confusion and controversy with regards to this relationship comes from the allegation that Muslims must reserve their love and loyalty for fellow Muslims, and reject and declare war on the rest of humanity a€” most acutely seen through the Islamic concept of Al-Wala' wal Bara' (WB) translated as a€œLoyalty and Disavowala€, which appears to be central in the ideology of modern Salafism.
