"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."—Muslim Brotherhood
Term used for congregations in Islam that are somewhat differentiated from the general community of Islam. The Arabic term, 'al-ikhwān, used for religio-political groups streching back in time to the Wahhabis of Arabia and is used today for groups of Islamists.
For Sufis the Arabic term tarīqa, designating the congregation of Sufis centered around the same leader, is also translated to "brotherhood". "Method", "system" or "path" would be correct translations, but the followers of a tariqa are grouped as a brotherhood.
