The study proceeds from the fact that the Muslim Brotherhood is one of the earliest organizations in Egyptian modern society and that over time the group’s strengths remarkably increased, up to reaching power before the military turned against it and overthrew its government in July 2013. In this context, the study seeks to explore the sources of institutional strengths of the Muslim Brotherhood and assess it according to Samuel Huntington’s model on institutionalization.
