The Young Men's Muslim Association (Arabic: جمعية الشبان المسلمين‎) (Jam'iyyat al-Shubban al-Muslimin) was founded in Egypt in 1926, two years before the founding of the Muslim Brotherhood. By the end of the decade it had around 15,000 members. The leader of the YMMA in Palestine was Izz al-din Qassam.[1]
