In The Shade Of The Qur’an – Fi Dhilal Al Qur’an by Sayyid Qutb

In the shade of the quran sayyid qutbIn The Shade Of The Qur’an – Fi Dhilal Al Qur’an – all 18 volumes. Sayyid Qutb has been associated with the religious ideology behind the radical Sunni Muslim groups such as al-Qaeda and the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS). It is known that Osama bin Laden was inspired by many of the concepts – especially the idea of “Offensive Jihad” – brought forward in Sayyid Qutb’s most famous book Milestones. Here Qutb takes a twist on an originally spiritual concept, Jihad, describing man’sMilestones by Syed Qutb Shaheedreligious struggle” or “striving in the way of God“, and explains why this must be understood as the need of religious war against unbelievers.  The story of Sayyid Qutb is really interesting, you might want to learn more about his years in the United States and how it formed his reading of the Quran and views (a drunk American woman tried to seduce him on the ship there :-).
There is an excellent Wikipedia entry here on his life: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sayyid_Qutb

Here I have chosen to present Sayyid Qutb’s insanely huge work: In The Shade Of The Qur’an. The book is a well-written modern commentary to the entire content of the Qur´an and it is considered one of the most comprehensive and far-reaching.
