Islam is the religion of rational and critical minds. This is why one of its fundamental goals is to make man aware of the paramount significance of gradation, fortitude, and maturity. Haste is an inherent characteristic of man in general, and of the young in particular. Indeed, haste is an outstanding characteristic of our own age. It has made our youth eager to saw the seeds today and to harvest the next day. But Allah's will in His own creation does not allow that.” Shaykh Yusuf al-Qaradawi

This online-text is based on the second revised edition of "Islamic Awakening Between Rejection And Extremism," (1991) by Shaykh Yusuf al-Qaradawi. Exytracts … quotes… Some parts of the text here has been updated with the help of the latest, the Third Edition (2006). This updated Second Edition is the pdf below.

For the chapter "The Causes of Extremism" some quotes will be presented, which should be seen as an introduction into his way of dealing with the all-important problem of extremism in Islam, and which - at the same time - is an eminent proof of traditional Islam always being far from any extremist tendency.

Concerning the Shaykh, we take from the learned and the scholars what we find to be true and what corresponds to the teachings of Islam and we leave what does not, applying to the rule “take what you are sure of and leave what causes doubt.”

And it seems, they were not ashamed at all, that the rescue teams risked their lives, only because they sailed inspite of stormwarnings- playing boys games and then let others save them. Those rescue guys are real heroes.I can't believe it: they would do it again!
