Abstract

Today’s world is increasingly vulnerable to various manifestations of terrorism from extremist groups. Many of today’s Islamic extremist organizations originated in Egypt, particularly the famous Muslim Brotherhood, which comprises a whole network of cells, which differ in style of work; some of them are fairly moderate and have obtained a status of political parties, while others perpetrate downright terrorist activities. This is the community, from which the radical organization Islamic Jihad emerged, as it was founded in 1979 by Faraj M. A. (1954-1982). The most remarkable thing is that Ibn Taymiyyah’s heritage had taken a decisive effect on Faraj’s belief. In his famous work – “Jihad: the Neglected Duty,” he always quoted and gave personal interpretations of Ibn Taymiyyah’s ideological heritage, concerning the judicial system, governmental power, takfir and jihad.
