As God creates man as well as all the creatures, Islam defines man well both in identity and alterity. Muslims with the help of their religious resources, can border up the religious identity as well as the alterity. Moreover in history the Muslim praxis defined the alterity wisely. In fact, the term Islam or submission in a sense can be considered as a social key term for a peace-maker society. Especially thanks to this word, Muslims could display both the receptive constructions and particular outlooks towards the others. In this article with the phenomenological framework, we will deal with the Muslim perception of other in critical hermeneutical perspectives. One of the urgent remarks that we have achieved that the self- critical consciousness can arises from the stigma of being represented as alterity. Then we have discussed the hermeneutics of alterity within the inclusivistic Qur’anic approach.
