The present article aims to explain and philosophically criticize the epistemological foundations of Huntington's theory of the clash of civilizations as an Islamophobic paradigm. Huntington believes that the fault lines between the eight civilizations - Western, Confucian, Japanese, Islamic, Hindu, Slavic, Orthodox, Latin American - will be the source of future world conflicts and, as critical points of crisis, will replace the political and ideological boundaries. For this reason, he considers the borders of Islam as a serious threat to the West as well as peace and security, which indicates the need for carrying out a research. The main question of this study is "what are the cognitive foundations of this theory and its contradictions with the documents of Islamic history?"  Using a descriptive-analytical method, the research findings refer to the four components of democracy, human rights, modernity and peace and security.
Keywords: Theory of Clash of Civilizations, World Peace and Security, Interaction and Confrontation of Civilizations, Early Islamic Wars.
