Chapter Summary

This chapter concerns ideological aspects of the Muslim Brotherhood (MB) movement, and presents three themes primarily associated with Hassan Al-Bannā: Islam as a way of life, the support of gradual reforms at the individual and social level, and Muslim unity. These are the guiding stars in the firmament of Brotherhood thought, and principles that are agreed on by most Brothers in Europe. The Islamic way of life is presented as the secret of Islam's expansion on a global scale. The classical Islamist thought proposed by Hassan Al-Bannā also emphasizes the necessity of a re-Islamification of Muslim populations in a gradual manner, beginning with reform of the individual, the family circle, and the entirety of society and its institutions. The concept of the Umma is frequently mentioned in the Koran. The principle of unity and solidarity is often frequently mentioned and often called into operation at the moment of humanitarian catastrophes.

Keywords: Hassan Al-Bannā; Muslim Brotherhood (MB) movement; Muslim unity
