Answering the Call

Abdullah Al-Arian

Oxford University Press

This chapter details the early discussions about reconstituting the Muslim Brotherhood following a change in the ruling regime and with it a change in policy toward the political opposition. The veteran leadership of the Muslim Brotherhood emerged from Nasser’s prisons to an increasingly crowded field of Islamic activism that featured groups offering alternative programs, while Sadat also appropriated religious rhetoric in the development of his governing ideology. Efforts to reconstitute the Muslim Brotherhood were hampered by internal divisions, a change in leadership with the emergence of a new general guide in Umar al-Tilmisani, and the years of alienation from the broader Egyptian society.

Keywords:   Anwar al-Sadat, Muslim Brotherhood, Umar al-Tilmisani
