Did an Islamic Scholar Influence Hitler?

A picture of a 1926 meeting between Hitler and al-Mashriqi, a proponent of a philosophy that combined fascism, science, Islam and social Darwinism spelled out in his Urdu-language book, Tazkirah.

Turns out Hitler may have used parts of Tazkirah in Mein Kampf.

"The astonishing similarities—or shall we say the unintentional similarity between two great minds—between Hitler’s great book and the teachings of my Tazkirah and Isharat embolden me, because the fifteen years of “struggle” of the author {Hitler] of “My Struggle” [Mein Kampf] have now actually led his nation back to success."
