In 1971, Malaysia witnessed the emergence of an Islamist youth movement called the Angkatan Belia Islam Malaysia (Muslim Youth Movement of Malaysia-ABIM). The movement had been an influential force during the era of Islamic revivalism witnessed in Malaysia throughout the 1970 and 1980s. This thesis argues that during its nascent years, ABIM received its guide and inspiration from the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood doctrines. This happened based on two primary modes of influence, 1) via direct contact and communication and 2) through media and communication. In addition to demonstrating the Brotherhood's ideological and spiritual influence on ABIM, this thesis addresses how Muslim Brotherhood models aided ABIM in its organizational framework. The examples given demonstrate how those models provided ABIM with the tools and strategies to launch an effective Islamic propagation campaign across Malaysia.
