Al-Muhajiroun is a banned extremist Salafi jihadist terrorist organisation that was based in the United Kingdom and which has been linked to international terrorism, homophobia and antisemitism.

The group operated in the United Kingdom from 14 January 1986 until the British Government announced an intended ban in August 2005.

Al Muhajiroun was established by Omar Bakri Mohammed. Anjem Choudary was the leader and a former member of Al-Muhajiroun.

The group became notorious for its September 2002 conference, “The Magnificent 19”, praising the September 11, 2001 attacks.

Ahlus Sunnah wal Jamaah is a Sunni Islamic organisation (operating in the United Kingdom), intended to be a successor to the banned Al-Muhajiroun. The group mutates periodically so as to evade the law, by operating under different aliases.

It was proscribed under the UK Terrorism Act 2000 on 14 January 2010 together with four other organisations including Islam4UK, and again in 2014 as “Need4Khilafah”.

Al-Muhajiroun’s proclaimed aims are to establish public awareness about Islam, to influence public opinion in favour of the sharia, to convince members of society that Islam is inherently political and a viable ideological alternative, to unite Muslims on a global scale in the threats facing the Ummah and to resume the Islamic way of life by re-establishing the Islamic Caliphate.
