Sayyid Qutb said:

“If a Muslim seeks to live in a non-Islamic ambience, his desire to live a Muslim life will be hard to actualize. This is due to the fact that the laws he considers defective, the taxes he considers wrong, the matters he considers illegitimate, the culture he considers ridden with immorality, the education system he considers horrible will be imposed upon him and his family, and he will not find a way out.

Thus a person or a group who believes in a value system is forced by the logic of its truth to seek its establishment in place of the opposing value system. If he does not become part of the effort to change the situation, he will prove himself to be false in his faith.”

[Fee Zhilaal Al-Quraan, by Sayyid Qutb, 7/35]
