Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Hassan al-Hudaybi (lived 1891-1973) was the second "General Guide," or leader, of the Islamist Muslim Brotherhood organization, appointed after founder Hassan al-Banna's assassination in 1949. He is credited with writing the book Preachers, Not Judges,, reputedly an "indirect but clear refutation" of Sayyid Qutb's Islamist manifesto Ma'alim fi al-Tariq (Milestones), and an argument against takfir of other Muslims Trained as a lawyer, he became a judge in 1924, with a first posting at Qena; he continued working as a respected judge until the killing of al-Banna, when he was chosen as a respectable outside candidate to reduce the group's then-violent reputation. He was arrested in 1965 in the crackdown against the Brethren by Pres. Nasser but and freed with other political prisoners in 1971 by Anwar al-Saadat, having outlived Nasser.
