Summary/Abstract: The role of artificial intelligence is an essential point in the theology of Islam, which, as a religion of nearly 1.7 billion people, occupies an important place in the way of life of the Muslim community. In Islamic theology, it is categorically stated that Allah „created“ man, gave him water, fruits and sustenance. This moment of the Holy Qur'an shows that any attempt to change this basic thesis will be rejected and not recognized by the Muslim community. Its uniqueness is a fundamental postulate in Islam, and this can be the basis for rejecting artificial intelligence. Thus, in certain situations, with just one fatwa, the relationship between Muslims and Christians in Europe can be changed in a very short time in a negative aspect, and artificial intelligence can become an occasion for a holy war (jihad). The subject of an impending conflict between artificial intelligence and Islamic theology is real. At this stage, these processes are not yet registered, but they are coming as a serious test for the future of humanity.
