The Loyal Investors in the Muslim Brotherhood

Munīb al-Ṣumālī

An excerpt from Shaykh al-ʿAllāmah Aḥmad Shākir’s letter to King ʿAbd al-ʿAzīz ʾĀl Saʿūd (رحمه الله) identifying the communists and the Jews as core investors into the Muslim Brotherhood movement.

The Egyptian scholar, the illustrious Muḥadith, the insightful critic, Shaykh al-ʿAllāmah Aḥmad Shākir, was born in the year 1892 (1307 AH) and died in the year 1958 (1377 AH) رحمه الله. He wrote a report, a private handwritten advice to King ʿAbd al-ʿAzīz ʾĀl Saʿūd (رحمه الله) in 1939. It was titled, “Taqrīr Shuʾūn al-Taʿlīm wa-al-Qaḍāʾ”. This report was about 68 pages long and was only first published in 2009. The most important issue this advice focused on was the state of the Muslim countries and the danger of separating worldly sciences and religion, whereby some individuals had advocated for the separation between religion and state with their infamous slogan, “Religion is for Allāh whereas the land is for its dwellers”. Shaykh Aḥmad Shākir sent the original report to the king and held a copy for himself, which was later obtained from the Shaykh’s son who authorized its publication.

He mentions in this report regarding the Muslim Brotherhood movement and its founder:

“The movement of Shaykh Ḥasan al-Bannā (d. 1949 AD) and his Muslim Brotherhood, who turned the Islamic call into a destructive criminal call, is funded by the communists and Jews as we know this for certain.”
