Ikatan Masyarakat Islam Malaysia (IKATAN) or Muslim Community Union of Malaysia was a minor Islamic political party formed in 1991 and based in Terengganu.[1]

IKATAN was a splinter party of Muslim People's Party of Malaysia (Malay: Parti Hizbul Muslimin Malaysia) (HAMIM), founded by Abdul Wahab Yunus, former Member of Parliament for Dungun, Terengganu who had resign from HAMIM together with his supporters after losing the HAMIM presidential seat contest in 1990.

The constitution of IKATAN was amended to change the name of the party to the National Justice Party (Malay: Parti Keadilan Nasional) (KeADILan) and relaunched on 4 April 1999.[2] and subsequently was renamed again as People's Justice Party (Malay: Parti Keadilan Rakyat) (PKR) after the merger with Malaysian People's Party (Malay: Parti Rakyat Malaysia) (PRM) on 3 August 2003.[3]
