Abul Ala Maududi, 1939

Abul Ala Maududi

“Islam is not merely a religious creed or compound name for a few forms of worship, but a comprehensive system which envisages to annihilate all tyrannical and evil systems in the world and enforces its own programme of reform which it deems best for the well-being of mankind. Islam addresses its call for effecting this programme of destruction and reconstruction, revolution and reform not just to one nation or a group of people, but to all humanity.”Abul A’la Maududi, “Jihad in Islam,” April 13, 1939, 16, http://muhammadanism.com/Terrorism/jihah_in_islam/jihad_in_islam.pdf.
