Qutbism (also called Kotebism, Qutbiyya, or Qutbiyyah) is an Islamist ideology developed by the late Sayyid Qutb, a Muslim, and figurehead of the Muslim Brotherhood. It has been described as advancing the extremist jihadist ideology of propagating " offensive jihad" – waging jihad in conquest – or "armed jihad in the advance of Islam"

Qutbism has gained widespread attention because it is widely believed to have influenced Islamic extremists and terrorists such as Osama bin-Laden. Muslim extremists “cite Sayyid Qutb repeatedly and consider themselves his intellectual descendants.”
