The project participants group consists of 50 students between 16-18 years old who continue their formal education at the Korgan Anatolian Imam Hatip High School, Fatsa Anatolian Imam Hatip High School and ?u?ehri Anatolian Imam Hatip High School. These students are 11th and 12th grade students who have already had the basic vocational training (in the 10th and 11th grade). Within this context the participants have the essential professional qualifications mentioned below: -Koran -professional Arabic -Basic religious knowledge -Islamic Law -The life of Muhammad the prophet -Hadith -Islamic Philosophical Theology -Oratory There are no disabled people or people with special needs among the participants. Today, the most common argument that is put forth against the hypothesis of the clash of civilisations is the concept of dialogue among civilisations. In this technological era where the borders between countries are abolished, communication and travelling opportunities are increased people are more and more interacted with one another. Throughout history religion being the reason of wars between nations has today become a means of social negotiation and building bridges of love and tolerance among civilisation. It allows people with different languages, religions and nations to know each other?s culture by means of communication technology even though they do not reside in the same country. In this process it is expected from religious officials to enlighten and orientate people within an academic scope, based on scientific data and far from dogmatism. The religious officials whose missions are to enlighten the Muslim population and guide them through their performing of religious duties have to train themselves with this fact in their minds. Nowadays, 53 million Muslims live in Europe. This means that 7% of Europe which has a population of 720 million is Muslim. The remaining approximately 665 million has different religious views, mainly Christianity and Judaism (Encyclopaedia of Islam, 2012). The most salient of these countries is the Netherlands which embodies various religions and beliefs and which is the European Union?s strongest country from the aspect of freedom of religious beliefs. The population of the Netherlands is nearly 17 million and 6% of it is consisted of Muslims (1 million). Our project aims at the teaching and applying of the Islam to the participating 50 Imam Hatip Highschool students based on scientific methods and research methods by eluding narrow thoughts and with a free mentality in a geography like the Netherlands which has manifold religious projections . It also aims at building relationships with other religions based on legit principles and improving their theoretical and practical competences. Within this scope the participants are going to get training in the academic environments where the Muslim population in Europe learns the Islam. Furthermore, they will learn by attending the worship areas and experiencing worship styles of the Muslims and the members of other religions. Moreover, thanks to the project the participants will attend academic and social activities with members of different religions. The effects of our project will be as follows; The participating students, - will gain experience about the learning environments of Islamic science by European Muslims, - will gain experience about the methodology and educational appliances used for the teaching of Islamic science in Europe, - will gain experience about practising religious Islamic worships on their practice fields in Europe, - will gain experience about the worship styles of members of different religions in Europe, - will gain experience about methods and levels of communication and interaction among Muslims, non-Muslims and atheists. - will improve their professional foreign language skills
