    Manar, al-

    Influential Egyptian journal (the name means “the lighthouse”) founded and published by Muhammad Abduh and Muhammad Rashid Rida in the early twentieth century. Hasan al-Banna took over the journal from 1939 to 1941 . Published monthly between 1903 and 1935 . Concentrated on Quranic exegesis and theological explication. Objectives were to articulate and disseminate ideas of reform and preserve the unity of the Muslim nation. Served as a voice for the Salafi movement, which promoted a return to the fundamental texts of Islam: the Quran and Sunnah. Sought to present reformist ideas in Quranic terms and reinterpret the Quran and Sunnah on their own, without the use of medieval texts.
