Don’t be another, Anwar Al-Awlaki

بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ

إِنَّا أَنزَلْنَا إِلَيْكَ الْكِتَابَ بِالْحَقِّ لِتَحْكُمَ بَيْنَ النَّاسِ بِمَا أَرَاكَ اللَّهُ ۚ وَلَا تَكُن لِّلْخَائِنِينَ خَصِيمًا

Surely, We have sent down to you (O Muhammad SAW) the Book (this Quran) in truth that you might judge between men by that which Allah has shown you (i.e. has taught you through Divine Inspiration), so be not a pleader for the treacherous. 4:105

Don’t be another, Anwar Al-Awlaki



Anwar Al Awlaki was a dual US-Yemeni citizen. An individual who was very seriously influenced by the corrupt ideology of a calamity called “Sayyid Qutb[#].

Qutb is among those deviant figures that are primarily responsible for unrest in the entire Muslim Ummah in recent times and have deep rooted evil effects especially on those who harbor extremism and are far deprived from ilm(knowledge)and Ahlul Ilm (Scholars).

Awlaki was killed last year and we see many have still taken him as an ideal and consider him to be “great scholar” and a “Islamic hero”, although he tremendously lacked in the correct Islamic knowledge, rather he opposed the truth and choose to turned himself away from the Scholarly advices.

Awlaki fanaticism towards Sayyid Qutb can be seen in this screenshot where he exaggeratedly praised Sayyid Qutb and his books to the extent that he mentionedQutb’s name alongside Imaam Ibn Kathir, an-Nawawi and their likes.

While Anwar Al Awlaki was still alive, Shaykh Dr. Abdullah al-Jarboo(hafidhahullah) who is a Professor from the College of Da’wah “Usool ud-Deen”, and a former head of the ‘Aqeedah Department at Medinah University, responded to some of his sticky doubts and false claims.

Even our elder scholar and adviser, Shaykh al Allamah Ubayd al-Jaabiri (hafidhahullah) spoke regarding Awlaki’s misguidance here. For the Arabic with English translation click the below links
