The present work seeks to introduce both Sayyid Qutb and his Magnum opus, capturing his intellectual and spiritual background, and his methodology of explaining various theological, social, economic and political issues in the Qur’an.

On August 29, 1966, Sayyid Qutb was sent to the gallows by the Nasser regime of Egypt. The specific charge against him was based on his now-celebrated book, Ma'alim Fi al-Tariq (Milestones), which denounces the existing order in Muslim societies. Sayyid Qutb's other works have been translated into virtually every Language that Muslims read, and remain hugely influential. But it was Fi Zilal al-Qur'an (In the shade of the Qur'an), the multi-volume Tafsir of the Qur'an which he wrote during his long confinements in prison, to which he owes his fame. Indeed, more than half-century after his death, the name Sayyid Qutb has become synonymous with Fi Zilal al-Qur'an. The present work seeks to introduce both Sayyid Qutb and his Magnum opus, capturing his intellectual and spiritual background, and his methodology of explaining various theological, social, economic and political issues in the Qur'an.
