dc.description.abstractSayyid Qutb (d. 1966) represented one of the most outstanding Muslim writers on
 Islamic thought in the twentieth century. His importance stems from the fact that his
 writings influenced numerous generations of Egyptian Muslims and Muslims outside
 of Egypt.
 
 This study examines the concept of social justice as found in Qutb's F Zilal
 al-Qur'an. Chapter one is devoted to a study of the formative phase of Qutb's life
 and career before his emergence as an influential Muslim scholar. Chapter two
 discusses Qutb's socio-political thought between 1947 and 1952, prior to FT Zildl al-
 Qur'dn. In this chapter, Qutb's literary study of the Qur'an, which became a
 preparatory background for his interest in Islam, will also be examined. Chapter
 three deals with general features of F Ziläl al-Qur'an, including Qutb's approach to
 Qur'anic commentary. Chapter four examines the doctrinal bases of social justice. In
 this chapter, the nature of social justice and its foundations will be discussed in
 accordance with Qutb's understanding of the doctrinal conception of Islam (al-tasawwur
 al-i' tigadi), including the divinity (uluhiyya), supreme authority
 (rubübiyya) and sovereignty (hakimiyya) of God. Chapter five addresses the practical
 dimensions of social justice. In this chapter, the discussion will focus on Qutb's
 outlook on the implementation of social justice with respect to the practical reality of
 Muslims' lives. His discussions on the necessity of establishing an Islamic State and
 implementing proper management of the economic system according to Islamic
 principles will also be covered. The study concludes with an assessment of the
 significance of Qutb's notion of social justice and his treatment of the current social,
 economic and political problems facing the Muslim Umma and Egyptian society.
