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

Posted on | March 6, 2012 | 19 Comments

In the shade of the quran sayyid qutbSayyid 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 mans “religious 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.

Each book is about 400 pages, I could not find the volumes 15-17, but I am sure you have hours of reading pleasure with these.

UPDATE September 2016. I found the missing Quaran volumes thanks to John. They are on the list now.

    May Allah bless him and bestow on him HIS bounties. He has done a very remarkable job which will last with the human race and earn Sayyid Qutb Jannatul Fardawsa Insha Allah.

    May Allah (SWT) continue to grant Sayed Qutub mercy in Al-Janat Firdaus for the enormous work he did and great effort he made to single-handedly write the Tafsir of the complete Quran in his noble work entitled Under the Shade of Al-Qur’an
