“Throughout the 19th century, Islam has become politicised by Muslim rulers to advance their own political powers and by religious communities to abuse it for their religious dominance. Both powerful elites corrupted the minds of the general population by inducing political Islam which was spread through mosques and madrasahs. While Sayyid Qutb and Sayyid Abul A’la Mawdudi had built the framework for an Islamist resurgence, it was Dr. Abdullah Azzam, a Palestinian PhD scholar in Islamic jurisprudence from Al-Azhar University, who helped these ideas go viral in the Arab world.”
