Milestones by Sayyid Quṭb( Book )

117 editions published between 1388 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 654 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Milestones is a translation of a major work by the Muslim Brotherhood leader, Sayyid Qutb. The work is Ma'alim fi'l-tarq, written shortly before Qutb was executed by Nasir's government in 1965. The book is an important statement of Qutb's views at the end of his life. The title, which might be translated "Signposts on the Way," indicates the purpose of the book. Qutb describes the volume as a guidebook for the vanguard in the revival of Islam. "It is necessary that this vanguard should know ... the mile- stones of the road toward this goal. . . I have writ- ten 'Milestones' for this vanguard" (p. 12). Part of the book is taken from his earlier commentary on the Qur'an, while other sections were written specially for the book. This is an important work to be read by anyone who wants to understand the "new fundamental- ism" in the Islamic world. It will help to eliminate stereotypes (e.g., Qutb speaks of the constructive contributions of Western science and is not sim- ply obscurantist. – Review from (Sep. 7, 2016)
A child from the village by Sayyid Quṭb( Book )

36 editions published between 1945 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 413 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Although the Egyptian writer Sayyid Qutb is not a household name in the United States, he is well known throughout the Islamic World as a seminal thinker in the Islamist movement, influential as far away as Pakistan and Malaysia. A member of the Islamic Brotherhood, he was jailed by Gamal Abdul Nasser's government as early as 1954. He became one of the most uncompromising voices of the movement we now call Islamism and is best known perhaps for his book, Ma'lam fi al-tariq, after publication of which he was accused of conspiring against Egyptian president Nasser and arrested. He was executed in 1966." "This memoir tells of Qutb's childhood in the village of Musha in Upper Egypt. Qutb documents the era between 1912 and 1918, a time immensely influential in the creation of modern Egypt. He offers a clear picture of Egyptian village life in the early twentieth century, its customs and lore, educational system, religious festivals, relations with the central government, and the struggle to modernize and retain its identity." "A Child from the Village was written just prior to Qutb's conversion to the Islamist cause and reflects his concerns for social justice. Interest in Qutb's writing has increased in the West since Islamism has emerged as a power on the world scene."--Jacket

Sayyid Qutb and Islamic activism : a translation and critical analysis of Social justice in Islam by Sayyid Quṭb( Book )

10 editions published in 1996 in English and German and held by 227 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This work is a translation of an important book by one of the forerunners of the current 'resurgence' of Islam. Its author was a prominent Islamic activist in Egypt in the late 1940s and early 1950s and was jailed and eventually executed for his activities. Today he is commonly viewed as a martyr and his books are widely read. First written in 1948, Social Justice in Islam went through five further editions, each revised in a manner reflecting his increasingly radical views. The present work translates the last edition, the most radical one, and also provides the alternative readings from the earlier editions, so that the reader can trace the development of the author's thinking. The introduction provides a brief biography of the author and an analysis of the changes in his thinking reflected in this book
