Wisdom Concentrate 8.1: Dr. Yusuf al-Qaradawi

By Dr. Yusuf al-Qaradawi | Translated by Suhaib Webb

“The method that I’ve employed over the course of my entire life is: That I seek to build and I don’t destroy, I unify and I don’t divide; I leave [other scholars] to make their own choices, and I will not force my opinions and legal conclusions on them, nor will I let them force me to follow their opinions and legal verdicts. If Allah [The exalted] ordered His noble Messenger [may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him] to say to those of other faiths, “To you is your religion, and to me is my religion” then how could I not say to my own Muslim brothers: “To you is your opinion and to me is mine, and to you are your actions and to me are mine?”

  1. Dawud Israel says:

    Subhana Allah…that’s stunning.

  2. I seek to build and I don’t destroy, I unify and I don’t divide

    Put that on a shirt, I’d buy it. What a great motto masha Allah, such wisdom. Sh. Qaradawi is a great mA.
