Yusuf al-Qaradawi was not a scholar of my field, English literature. Nor was he Western�educated. Many may find it strange that I put pen to paper to write an essay on a writer who is not a prominent figure in my discipline. It is the magnitude of his scholarly legacy that interests me most. I regard Qaradawi as a man of letters, and I am impressed by the rigour, worth and extensiveness of his scholarly contributions. Among the contemporary scholars I have studied, Qaradawi stood out for the splendour of his reasoning, the strength of his arguments and his courage to tell truth to power. His intellectual tenacity, perseverance and diligence and sense of purpose were, in my opinion, unsurpassed by any of his contemporaries.
