Islam stands for change. It seeks to change the individual and the society. This change covers every aspect of human life, from personal morality to business, economics, and politics. It is only natural that Islam should be fought by those who oppose change. This is the way it has been throughout history. lt happened to Noah, Abraham, Moses, Jesus, and Muhammad (Peace be on them). It will happen to anyone who wants to stand up and pro claim the true message of Islam to the world today. Sayyid Qutb the Author Name(s) of this book, tried to bring together some of the fine points of Islam and Islamic work in the present volume. lt seems that true Islamic principles are too much for the corrupt regimes of the self-proclaimed leaders of so-called Islamic countries Sayyid Qutb was persecuted, and eventually hanged. The ultimate price for working to please God Almighty and to propagate his ways in this world is often one’s own life. The Author Name(s) tried to do it; he paid for it with his life. If you and I try to do it, there is every likelihood we will be called upon to do the same. But for those who truly believe in God, what other choice is there?
Milestones – (English) – (PB)
“Milestones” is the English translation of “Ma’alim fi al-Tariq“. A heroic effort by Sayyid Qutb, calling out to recreate the Muslim world on the basis of Quranic teachings and abandon the ignorance towards the real teachings of Islam. This is one of the most influential works Arabic which ultimately led to the Author Name(s) being hanged.
