Sayyid Qutb and Reciting al-Fatihah Over Food For Presentation to the Dead

To the right is one of the earlier books of Sayyid Qutb, "Mashaahid al-Qiyaamah Fil-Qur'aan", and this is the 14th edition, 2002 (1423H).

We have established and documented in previous articles that Sayyid Qutb was gulping down Western materialist philosophies, along with his teacher, al-Aqqaad, for 15 years (see here), and he was influenced by Marxist-Socialism, as well as Lenin's manifesto ("What is to be done?") for executing that Socialism, the revolution led by a small vanguard. Read from the biography of Qutb by Salaah al-Khaalidee regarding those early years of Qutb in this article here. And then you can read of Qutb's Marxist-Socialist-Communist defilement upon Islaam in this article here. And then you can also learn of Qutb's borrowing his revolutionary manifesto from secular atheist Jews in this article here, and then you can also learn of the predecessor of Sayyid Qutb, Marx, Lenin and Engels in revolution (who coincidentally also functioned out of Egypt) that is Abdullah bin Saba' in this article here - and alongside this, you should also understand that Qutb plotted the July 1952 socialist revolution which led to Jamal Abdul-Nasser coming into power, in his own home. In addition to all of the above, we see Qutb propounding a medley of major innovations in his works, those of the Raafidah, Jahmiyyah, Mu'tazilah, Ash'ariyyah, what is worse than the aqidah of the Khawaarij, statements of the people of Wahdat ul-Wujood, the aqidah of the Jabariyyah, and so on (see this series here).

We have documented all of this in separate articles purely as a matter of record, and in order to give a fuller picture, we now have a look at the nurturing Qutb received as a child and youth. In this particular book Sayyid Qutb writes on page 5, the following:

Indeed your image is etched into my imagination whilst we used to dedicate some food from the supper every evening, and you would recite al-Faatihah and then direct it to the soul of your parents in the abode of the Hereafter. And we, your small children, would copy you with selected verses from it, before we had memorised it completely.

To your soul O my father, do I present this action And perhaps it is acceptable to you and responded to by Allaah And Allaah grants success in what contains goodness and correctness.

This quote is also brought by Salaah al-Khaalidee in his biographical work of Sayyid Qutb, (من الميلاد إلى الإستشهاد) "From Birth to Martyrdom" (p. 35). The dedication of food to the dead and reciting al-Faatihah over it, and directing it to one's parents or ancestors is from the innovations of the Soofiyyah.
