Few thinkers have had such an influence on the contemporary Islamic thought as ash-shaheed Sayyid Qutb. Since his execution in 1964 in Cairo, his death became the perfect illustration of one of the processes through which a human being becomes part of the revolutionary movement aimed at changing the world and bringing in a new ethical moral order based on freedom, brotherhood, and justice for all.

Islam stands for change. It seeks to change the individual and the society. This change covers every aspect of human life: form personal morality to business economics and politics. It is only natural that Islam should be fought b those who want to keep the status quo. This is the way it has always been throughout history: Adam to Nuh, Ibrahrim, Musa, Isa, and Muahmmad (peace be upon them). It will happen to anyone who wants to stand up and proclaim the true message of Islam to the world.

This book has actually been online in various places for quite a while. Contrary to popular belief, shaheed Sayyid Qutb (rahimahullah) actually wrote pretty good stuff. Sure it may not be for everyone, but I don't think it is fair to discredit his work, esp. if done so without even checking it out yourself.

 

It is good that it can be downloaded because this is one of those books that is banned in some places, such as Misr. The only work of his, which I was told by a Masriyah, that one is allowed to own is Fee Dhilal Al Quraan (In the Shade of the Quran). Allahul Mustaan! So please don't take it for granted. Also, I don't know if this applies to all books written by him or even by Zaynab Ghazali (rahimahallah), but please not that certain governments, such as the Misri one, censor certain things even (or it seems just) in Islamic material. Allahu alam.

Assalam Wa'alaykum.

 

I have heard sister, that there are rumors that Qutb has blasphemy in this book as well as bidah... I have also heard similar criticisms of Maulana Maududi. Sheikh Bin Baz wrote a refutation of Qutb.

 

Assalam Wa'alaykum.

Well, no one implied or said that he was a scholar. No aalim, shaykh whether from the past or present is free of mistakes.

 

I don't think that one should take primarily from him or Mawdudi, but having read things from both, I can say that it is also not like one cannot take ANYthing from them. At the same time, I don't think one who does not know the basics of the deen, or doesn't have a proper understanding of the basics, should read things by them.

 

If Sayyid Qutb was to be not read from at all, then Salih Al Fawzan (who has also refuted him) would not have his name in the bibliographies of one of his own works. Also, even AOU has Fee Dhilaal il Quraan students as one of the texts you have to use when taking their first tafseer course. However, as you know, his series was a commentary, not really a tafsir as it does not start with ayaat and ahadith, and the athaar from the salaf, like Tafsir Ibn Kathir does. Personally, I could not follow all of it, and prefer a more daleel-full (for a lack of a better word) tafsir.

 

 

It's pretty much like that with Tafheemul Quran of Mawdudi as well, but with his, I feel that the writing is clear, but again, not really daleelful or detailed, so not something I prefer to take from. Also, if you read his biography you will see that it mentions the name of some deviant group. As far as I recall that was in reference to his grandfather being a scholar or such for that group. Is that in regards to him as well, or not? Allahu Alam.

 

:sl: for your post.

Assalam Wa'alaykum wa rahmatullahi wa baraakatuh,

 

I have also heard a similar argument in regard to how we might take some things from Sayyid Qutb, however I am not sure if this is a good idea. I have heard rumours that his book has other things like Bidah and that it tries to place ideas of socialism in it. Furthermore, if I am not mistaken, I read on wikipedia that some Salafis have criticised Qutb for introducing concepts like an Islamic state as a political entity when political entities are a western concept. I am in a dilemma over this issue, as I am not sure who to listen to.

 

Assalam Wa'alaykum wa rahmatullahi wa baraakatuh.

"May the eyes of the cowards never sleep"...

 

By the command of America, the apostate scholors wrote many things, slandering Sayyid Qutb Rahmatullahi Alayhi, and many other scholors such as Ibn Tammiyah, Imam Abu Hanifa, Ibn Katheer and many other great scholors of this Ummah. As a muslim you have to find firm evidence about a crime. If a person commits a crime even though it is a death sentence by shari'ah without evidence and witness he will not be put to death. Many apostate scholors wrote a lot of things about him but no evidence. After all the slandering took place by these scholors who were ordered by their lord, America, and thier trinity, holy ghost king of Saudi Arabia, Sheikh Abur Rahman bin Jibreen and gave a fatwa cause he knew these were all lies and said Sayyid Qutb Rahmullah is regarded as one of the matrys of Islam.

Those ppl who read his book came back to Islam. Through his book he guided thousands of ppl around the world, by the will of Allah. Read Milestones and find out. Remember if you are a believer guidence is from Allah.
