This article examines the thought of Sayyid Qutb. He is most identified with political Islam, also referred to as Islamism, which emphasizes the application of Islamic law in all aspects of human life. While he did not condone violence, he believed that Islamists were justified in using force to protect their religion. Qutb also rejected all forms of philosophy because these were purely human constructs, and thus alien to Islamic thought.
