Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Muhammad Qutb, (1919-present) is an Islamist author, scholar and teacher best known as the younger brother of the Egyptian Islamist thinker Sayyid Qutb. He was a supporter and promoter of his older brother's ideas after his brother was executed by the Egyptian government. Muhammad Qutb was the second eldest of five children born in the Upper Egyptian village of Musha near Asyut, and is several years younger than his elder brother Sayyid, born sometime after 1906. Little is known in English sources about his upbringing and education but it is known that he lived with his famous brother, their two sisters and mother in Helwan near Cairo for several years starting in 1926. He was arrested a few days before Sayyid (on July 29, 1965) for his alleged co-leadership along with his brother in a plot to kill leading political and cultural figures in Egypt and overthrow the government. His life was spared (although his brother died on the gallows in 1966), and in 1972 he was released from prison.Subsequently he took refuge, with other members of the Muslim Brotherhood, in Saudi Arabia.
