In contemporary academic literature, the name of the Syrian publisher and journalist Muhibb al-Dn al-Khatb often appears in connection with the rise of the Muslim Brotherhood during the interwar years. Although his role in the transition of Hasan al-Bann's movement from a marginal to a significant socio-political player in Egyptian affairs has been mentioned in numerous works, no comprehensive study has yet been undertaken to determine how and by what means exactly al-Khatb supported al-Bann's organization in its early years. The following article is an attempt to answer these questions by showing the strategic importance of al-Khatb and his network in helping al-Bann develop from being an Arabic teacher in a primary school to one of the main leaders of the Islamist movement in Egypt.
