Yasin, Abd al-Salam

(b. 1928 )

Moroccan Islamic activist, leader, and ideologue of the movement of al-Adl wa'l-Ihsan. Produced several books and published a now-banned monthly periodical, Al-jamaah. Known for his harsh criticism of the monarchical institution, the official religious scholars, and the westernized elite, whom he accuses of de-Islamizing society. Imprisoned for several years and then placed under house arrest from 1989 to 2000 . Calls for a reconciliation of the state and dawah (call) and the implementation of the Prophetic Paradigm, a comprehensive process of organization, socialization, and mobilization that reflects Yasin's Sufi influences and prepares for the restoration of the caliphate. Yasin's movement represents the most influential Islamic opposition in Morocco.
