It is a NGO and international mechanisms for Islamic countries to achieve Islamic solidarity. Original and divine sources of Islam encompass all Islamic principles and values. International relations inspired by the original Islamic sources has been developed and implemented among Muslim countries with the efforts of Muslim scholars and jurists. Some of the most recognized principles are equality, justice, respect, fulfillment of the covenant, cooperation, development, peace and security, respect for the right of self-determination, as well as preventing aggression, corruption, tyranny, and ultimately jihad. Statute of the Organization of Islamic Conference reflects and embodies the values and principles of Islam. The introduction to the Statute emphasizes on member states’ commitment to preserve Islamic, spiritual, religious, social and economic values and principles; foreign targets of Muslim countries should be evidently the very embodiment of these principles. This research aims to examine the organization’s capacity to enter legal disputes among member countries of this major political organization in the Muslim world.
