I decided to read sayyid Qutb books and decide for myself. Find out what is the attraction to his writings. I decided to read it and share the information with my blog readers. I started yesterday with a book called “This is the religion”
I am on page 11 of 165 pages. I do not know if I can make it to the end of one book. Maybe my goal was a little ambitious.
Here is the translation of the paragraph which stopped me: “No one can put a manhaj (Way of life) for people. Only God put the rules for people to live by and any groups of people putting their own manhaj are taking a divine right which belongs only to God and therefore are adding a divine aspect to themselves and can’t be Muslims.”
This is why extremists like only sharia because it is divine and not made by humans. I do not believe that our Merciful God would deny us the right to decide for ourselves the rules to live by as long as we do not transgress his limits.
should I continue reading Qutb?
