All praises belong to Allah, the Most High. Praise Allah Who sent the final Messenger as a warner and bearer of glad tidings for the rightgoeus. May Allah’s peace and blessings be upon the final and last Messenger Muhammad until the Last day.

This is a short analysis of some mistakes found “ In the Shade of the Quran” from Sayyid Qutb(  غفره الله). Unfortunately, this entire book has been printed to English and spread  around the globe. The scholars have highlighted the errors in his Tafsir and advised the Muslims to rely on the Tafsir of Ibn Kathir, which was previously available in English as well.

Bearing in the mind the danger this book has with regards to the Aqeedah of Ahlus Sunnah wa Jama’, it’s therefore necessary to inform English readers of his errors in detail as found in the English translation.

To make it simple to follow I relied on the translation  from  the complete 18 volume set found in the image of this cover. I quoted the translation exactly as it was done. Then I would underline important points that the reader should reflect on before reading the rebuttal . Another stlye I followed in this paper was I mentioned Sayyid Qutb in RED to make it easier for the reader to identify his speech and the verse where he erred in. Lastly , I mentioned the responses from Al-Allamah Abdullah Ad-Duwish in Blue, so the reader can quickly be referenced to the correct belief of Ahlus Sunnah.

I pray that this makes things clear for my Muslim brothers and sisters around the world about the dangers and errors of Sayyid Qutb in the areas of Tafsir and belief. I ask Allah to accept this deed from me and reward our scholars who explain the correct creed .
