Qutb's Milestones

    Saturday, January 07, 2017   No comments

Although it is common in the publishing world for the author to produce an abstract that introduces their work, the blurb is generally written in passive voice, giving the impression that someone else, perhaps an editor or reviewer, wrote the “about” statement. Sayyid Qutb, true to his reputation, introduced his book in the first voice. Here, too, we let Qutb speak about his book.

I wrote Milestones Along the Way for this awaited and desired vanguard. This work consists of four chapters: The Nature of the Quranic Method, Islamic Concept and Culture, Jihad in the Cause of God, and Revival of the Muslim Community and its characteristics. These chapters are derived from the commentary I wrote, Fī zilāli ‘l-qurān, which I have changed in some places slightly to fit the topic being discussed here. I wrote the Introduction and the other chapters at various times. In writing these chapters, I provide insight into findings which were inspired by evolving reflections derived from the divine systems as expressed in the Noble Quran.
