Abstract
Cosmopolitanism is an ideal goal of many contemporary International Relations theories. The main idea conveyed is that our moral obligations as human beings need not be limited by state's boundaries or any other structures. "Citizen of the world" is the main term of this concept. On the other hand, there is also a concept of umma which is termed by many scholars as Islamic community or community of believer. The discussion and comparison between cosmopolitanism and umma is quite rare. Related to that, this paper argues that the Umma and cosmopolitanism are two similar concepts; however they derive from two different civilizations. Democracy in this case is a tool to sustain both the ummah and cosmopolitanism.
