Chapter Summary

This chapter explores personalities of reference within the movement by directing the attention to those persons who are most often mentioned by the partisans. With the exceptions of Zeinab Al-Ghazali (mentioned by women) and Saʿīd Ramadān, many personalities are never mentioned by sympathizers. These authorities are in general militants who have come out of the Muslim brotherhood (MB) movement itself; most of them have occupied organizational positions, as leaders of the Egyptian center of the movement, or more rarely as leaders of other national branches. Zeinab Al-Ghazali (1917-2005) was a figure of classical authority who occupies a singular position. Despite the radical specificity of the experience of Zeinab Al-Ghazali, her figure continues to stand as a real role model for life.

Keywords: Muslim brotherhood (MB) movement; Saʿīd Ramadān; Zeinab Al-Ghazali
