It might be surprising to compare Fethullah Gulen and Sayyid. The common link between them drew the author's attention while he was on a visit to Turkey. He noticed that works of Sayyid qutb, especially his famous The Shades of The Quran, were taught at Gulen's seminary in Istanbul. Based on Foucault's less famous notion of political spirituality, this article attempts to trace common structural factors in the thought of both men, which fall in an area that it calls the politics of Sufism. The difference, however, between Gulen's and Qutb's modes of political action can be attributed to their respective notions of time. Hence the one opts for dialogue and the other opts for confrontation.
