Abdullah Al-Arian

Oxford University Press

Examining the critical issues around which the Muslim Brotherhood organized its activism in the second half of the 1970s, Chapter 6 isolates the organization’s chief publication for a discussion on cultural framing. The monthly periodical al-Da‘wa was a focal point of the group’s activities, bridging the generational divide by publishing commentaries by senior group leaders and articles by student reporters. It featured the active construction of the Muslim Brotherhood’s message for the next generation, detailing not only the group’s grand vision for an Egypt that fulfilled the tenets of Islam, but also its reaction to current events and a thorough appraisal of government policies.

Keywords:   al-Da‘wa, Muslim Brotherhood, Islam, social movement, framing
