Comments: 4 Qutb I:2

Qutb might be planning on setting up a dynasty that will allow people to drift away, so that it needs to be replaced by another purist a half-millennia later, so that people can re-build the pure society, which can then drift away from the truth, requiring another revolutionary...

Or he might not have his vision beyond his need to reproduce the original purity of Islam, without any thoughts about eventual drifting from that original purity.
