  Mashaa-Allaah! Excellent series!!!

Some quotes from the 7th part...
These are four from the Companions of Allaah's Messenger (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam), a Muslim writer [i.e. Syed Qutb] mentions them with the likes of these strange distasteful expressions. Rather, he added (more to that), for much of the Bani Umayyah were not secure against his pen. For he threw upon them whatever he was able of characteristics that in their entirety rendered them free of the deen of Allaah, having hypocrisy in their Islaam, and negating any moral element- as he calls it - from their lives.
And if he knows that he (Qutb, himself) is better in view and in acquaintance of the Quraish than Abu Bakr when he gave authority to Yazid bin Abi Sufyan, and he is from Bani Umayyah, and more penetrative in his insight that Umar, when he gave authority to Mu'awiyah, then its him and whatever he knows!!
And if he knows that Mu'awiyah did not fight in the wars of apostasy (against the murtaddoon) except whilst concealing nifaaq (hypocrisy) and ghadar (treachery, double-crossing) then to him is whatever he knows.
And if he holds what is greater than that (i.e. what has preceded), that he is more knowledgeable of the Companions of Allaah's Messenger (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam) than Allaah's Messenger (himself) to whom the information used to come from the heaven of the names of the specific, individual Munafiqeen (hypocrites). And that is what I seek refuge in for him from that he should believe this or say it!!
