Hasan Al Bana

Sheikh Hassan Ahmed Abdel Rahman Muhammed al-Banna (Arabic: حسن أحمد عبد الرحمن محمد البنا‎; 14 October 1906 – 12 February 1949), known as Hassan al-Banna, was an Egyptian schoolteacher and imam, best known for founding the Muslim Brotherhood, one of the largest and most influential Islamic revivalist organizations.[1]

Al-Banna’s writings marked a watershed in Islamic intellectual history by presenting a modern ideology based on Islam.[2] Al-Banna considered Islam to be a comprehensive system of life, with the Quran as the only acceptable constitution.[3] He called for Islamization of the state, the economy, and society.[2] He declared that establishing a just society required development of institutions and progressive taxation, and elaborated an Islamic fiscal theory where zakat would be reserved for social expenditure in order to reduce inequality.[3][2] Al-Banna’s ideology involved criticism of Western materialism, British imperialism, and the traditionalism of the Egyptian ulema.[4] He appealed to Egyptian and pan-Arab patriotism but rejected Arab nationalism and regarded all Muslims as members of a single nation-community.
