Mankind today is on the brink of a precipice, not because of the danger of complete annihilation which is hanging over its head-this being just a symptom and not the real disease

This work outlines the various stages in the establishment of a true Islamic life. After describing the mission of Islam and the methodology to achieve it, the author shows how the Prophet (pbuh) prepared and trained the first Muslim community and how later Muslims lost this initiative and revolutionary spirit.

Qutb, like most contemporary Islamic revivalists, was distressed with the growing distance between Islamic values, institutions and practices and the emerging postcolonial Muslim societies, specially in his native Egypt. In Milestones, he sought to answer some of the fundamental questions such as
why Islam needs to be revived?
why no other way of life is adequate?
What is the true essence of an Islamic identity and an Islamic existence (he uses the term "concept" to signify these two elements)?
How was Islam established by the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) and his companions?
Can the same method, which was undoubtedly divine in its conception be replicated again?
Qutb is particularly concerned with this issue of 'Islamic methodology". He believes that Islamic values and the manner in which they are to be realized (read as were realized by Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) and his glorious companions) both together constitute the faith of Islam.

Milestones by Sayyid Qutb Sayyid Qutb is easily one of the major architects and 'strategists' of contemporary Islamic revival. Along with other social activists in the middle of the 20th century, he gave shape to the ideas and the worldview that has mobilized and motivated millions of Muslims, from Malaysia to Michigan, to strive to reintroduce Islamic practices into their lives, and to alter social and political institutions so as to reflect Islamic principles. Milestones was written to educate and motivate the potential vanguard of the re-Islamization movement. Qutb, like most contemporary Islamic revivalists, was distressed with the growing distance between Islamic values, institutions and practices and the emerging postcolonial Muslim societies, especially in his native Egypt. In Milestones, he seeks to define some fundamental concepts, including why Islam needs to be revived, the true essence of an Islamic identity and an Islamic existence, jihad, and how Islam was established by the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) and his companions. Qutb is particularly concerned with this issue of "Islamic methodology." He believes that Islamic values, as well as the manner in which they are to be realized, together constitute the faith of Islam.
