Abstract The al Ikhwan al Muslimim, the Society of Muslim Brothers or Muslim Brotherhood, (MB) is an international Islamist organization with over 50 national branches. Its motto reflects its Salafi jihadist motives and methods: 'Allah is our objective. The Prophet is our leader. Qur'an is our law. Jihad is our way. Dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope.' This monograph will describe the sources of Sharia, the Qur'an, Sira, and Hadith, and provide an Islamic scholarly summary of Sharia. This will demonstrate that Sunni Islam has an established orthodoxy, Sharia, which is not compatible with the Constitution of the United States, the American way of life, or the interests of the American people. Islam is a monistic political and legal system, a complete way of life, and a philosophy, of which the monotheistic religion is only one part. A review of the literature from the International Muslim Brotherhood's leaders in the United States will establish the Islamic basis of their goals, and their intent to use jihad to achieve those goals. The monograph outlines the ideological and doctrinal bases of MB strategy and behavior, which has its origin in Sunni Salafism. However, it is not an examination of Islam, its religious virtue, or of Muslims in general. It establishes the threat posed by the MB based upon their chosen doctrine, strategic goals, historic activities and affiliations, and operational plans, but does not discuss Islamic arguments against the MB's doctrinal validity.
