  Sayyid Qutb
Sayyid Qutb was born on 8 October 1906, in a village called "Musha" in the township of Qaha in the province of Assyout in Egypt.
Sayyid Qutb resumed his job as a teacher and inspector in the ministry of education before he resigned in October 1952 (again because of his repeated philosophical disagreements with the minister of education and many of his colleagues).
Sayyid Qutb will always be remembered for his legacy of clearly defining the basic ideas of the Oneness and sovereignty of Allah, the clear distinction between pure faith and the association of partners with Allah (Shirk) overt and hidden, and the only hope for salvation of humanity.

In this Sayyid Qutb departed from Maulana Maudoodi's articulation of "partial jahiliyyah" in which the late Pakistani scholar was prepared to concede to the systems prevalent in Muslim societies some room for modification and hence a degree of respectability.

 Religioscope - Interview wit Prof. Abu Rabi about Sayyid Qutb
Initially Sayyid Qutb was a secular man of letters in Egypt, before he converted fully to Islamic ideas in the 1940s.
But the second major factor that led perhaps to an increase in the charisma of Sayyid Qutb is the Nasserite  revolution of 1952, because now, after 1952, we are dealing with a fundamentally different situation than had been current in Egypt before that time.
In the 1940s or so, Sayyid Qutb began to be more and more aware of the importance of the Quran in the Islamic life.

 The Thought of Sayyid Qutb by Luke Loboda   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-07)
Qutb argues that such exploitation allowed the temporal leaders, who were in a power struggle with the papacy, to use the people against the Church: "They resorted mainly to unveiling the scandals of the clergymen, exposing their clandestine perfidy and personal debauchery, which had been disguised behind priestly robes and ecclesiastical ritual."40
Qutb claims that "if any individual pass the night hungry, the blame attaches to the community because it did not bestir itself to feed him."100 Qutb compares Islamic society to one body because it is a community of believers.
Qutb summarizes this view by stating: "The fundamental principle is that property belongs to the community in general; individual possession is a stewardship which carries with it conditions and limitations."112 His rights are reliant on fulfillment of his economic duties to society because all property is owned by God in the larger sense.

 Alex Forrest's Blog: Sayyid Qutb
Sayyid Qutb was one of the intellectual leaders and shapers of what is today thought of as radical Islam.
Those years were seminal for Qutb, for it was largely the result of his time in the United States and his disgust with its society that led him to embrace a more radical, fundamentalist Islam.
Qutb was arrested again in 1964, shortly after the publication of Milestones, and largely because of the content of the book itself.

 The Wahhabi Myth - Salafism, Wahhabism, Qutbism
Sayyid Qutb (1906-66) was born in a small town in Upper Egypt and moved to Cairo as an adolescent in order to further his education.
Qutb's lack of knowledge in Islam coupled by his jailing led him to change his understanding of Islam according to the circumstances he was faced with.
This environment caused Qutb to form a particular outlook of the world, and his absence of proper grounding in the methodology of the early rightly-guided Muslims caused him to fall into the dangerous orientation of expelling people from the fold of Islam due to their sins...

According to many experts, a clue may lie in the life and works of Sayyid Qutb, an Islamic ideologue who was radicalized after an overwhelmingly negative experience in the United States and later imprisoned and executed by Gamal Abdel Nasser’s regime in Egypt in 1966.
“Sayyid Qutb’s role in inspiring the Islamic resurgence of the last generation should not be underestimated or ignored,” Gohel said.
The time proved to be formative for Qutb, who had closely followed American popular culture and at the time viewed the United States as a somewhat positive influence, especially when contrasted with the European colonialism he had witnessed growing up in the Middle East.

Sayyid Qutb (IPA pronunciation: ['saɪjɪd 'kʌtəb]) (Arabic: سيد قطب‎; 9 October 1906 (The Library of Congress has his birth year as 1903).
Whether he esposed dictatorship, or later rule by Sharia law with essentially no government at all, Sayyid Qutb's mature political views always centered on Islam - Islam as a complete system of morality, justice and governance, whose Sharia laws and principles should be the sole basis of governance and everything else in life.
Qutb also opposed the then popular ideology of Arab nationalism, having become disallusioned with the 1952 Nasser Revolution and exposed to regime's practices of arbitrary arrest, torture, and deadly violence during his imprisonment.
