From Secularism to Jihad: Sayyid Qutb and the Foundations of Radical Islamism based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Adnan Musallam puts in a hardback capsule, the understanding the life and trials of one Muslim Man¿s growth and struggle¿s with God in relationship to fellow man¿s social structure. Profoundly articulate, scientific and even artful in its presentation of the man- Sayyid Qutb and his life's work as a, poet, writer, critic, author, bureaucrat , educator, philosopher and radical Islamic Ideologue all combine to make this book a must read for anyone interested in today¿s political world. Dr. Musallam takes you on a systemic journey of understanding how this one man's thoughts and ideas developed from early childhood as a secularist to his execution as a devout Islamist- and beyond! After reading this book you will not only better understand the man- Qutb but also more importantly just how his thoughts and ideas have been woven so tightly since his execution by (so many others many are linked in this book) so as to now form the very fabric of the flags being waved throughout today's volatile Muslim World
