Being a part of a long explanation from one of the erudite scholars of Da'wah Salafiyyah, Ash-Shaykh Muhammad b. Hizaam (may Allaah preserve him), on the deviations and misguidance of Sayyid Qutub.

The Prophet - peace and blessings be upon him - said:
"I have been commanded to fight people until they testify that there is no deity worthy of worship except Allaah and that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allaah, and they establish Salaah and give Zakaah. When they do that, they would have gained protection from me for their lives and properties except they commit an act punishable in Islaam and their reckoning is with Allaah.'
The proofs are many and this is not the place for mentioning them. This is just a citation to explain these deviations.
And also, he was referring to calling people to Islaam and not accepting anything other Islaam religious sectarianism and the T?gh?t of religious fanaticism!!! A misguided fellow, then he said: "to put in its place: absolute tolerance."
Rather, the protection of creed should be an obligation mandated on Muslims toward people of other religions.
These are statement of Kufr and nothing has precluded one from doing takfeer of them except for the possibility of wrong inference (Ta'weel on their part). If not for that, these are statements of Kufr.
He describes the Muslim society as infidel society while Jews and Christians are to be protected in their faith.
There is no deity worthy of worship except Allaah! How do the Muslim Brotherhood make bold to defend people like these and glorify them? This is clear repulsive sectarian partisanship. This is a conscrited Wal? Wal Bar? (Alliance and disavowal) and disputing with people based on falsehood.
"Whoever disputes based on falsehood while he knows he will not cease to be under the wrath of Allaah."
Also, he has statements where he defamed the Prophet of Allaah, M?s?, we seek refuge from Allaah. We seek refuge in Allaah, how could he be so impertinent? But, as you have heard it is because the fellow did not learn. He entered into the Tafseer of the word of Allaah with ignorance and he wanted to explain it in academic way and in the way of writing in Magazines and publications.
He said in his book, at-Tasweer al-Fanniy fil Qur'an (artistic illustration in the Qur'an) page 200:
'We should take M?s? as an example of a leader that is moved by tribalistic temperament' pointing at the word of Allaah the Most High: These kinds of word we don't like that it should be quoted but so that you know the falsehood with these people.
And defaming a Prophet is kufr - and he was referring to him as a leader!!! Allaah the Most High has said:
"And Allaah spoke to M?s? with direct speech " (Q4:164)
A Prophet from the prophets of Allaah, and he is one of the noblest of prophets after the two Khaleel - our prophet Muhammad ??? ???? ???? ????, then Prophet Ibrahim ???? ?????? , then Prophet M?s? ???? ??????
'and here appears tribal sentiment as also appears the rage of clannishness.'
Saying this kind of statement in a disparaging way is considered Kufr!!! We ask Allaah for refuge.
Watch out for the last part, Inshaa Allaah.
