Islamic Charities and Islamic Humanism in Troubled Times

Jonathan Benthall

Manchester University Press

This Chapter was originally the entry in the Oxford Encyclopedia of Islam and Politics (2014). on Yusuf al-Qaradawi, the Egyptian-born Islamic scholar who took up residence in Qatar. It sets out to present a fair and balanced portrait of this contentious figure, regularly voted among the world’s foremost public intellectuals and (when the article was written) the most influential religious authority in the Sunni Muslim world, not least because of the formidable network of institutions that he helped to create, including charities; but also because of his forceful oratory, media skills, and many publications. A prefatory note provides up-to-date information on controversies involving Qaradawi, as the spiritual leader of the Muslim Brotherhood, that have erupted since the article was first published.

Keywords:   Qaradawi, Yusuf al-, Oxford Encyclopedia of Islam and Politics, Islamic charities, Muslim Brotherhood, Qatar
