The study commences with an introduction, beginning with a discussion of the Origins of the Salafiyya in Morocco. The first chapter offers a brief sketch of the formative period of Al-Hilālī’s life. In the second chapter, Al-Hilālī’s attitudes are examined in the light of his early missionary work in Egypt and elsewhere. Chapter Three deals with the first steps in Al-Hilālī’s international preaching. Chapter Four discusses Al-Hilālī's activities during the time he spent in Germany. Chapter Five begins with a discussion of the reason for Al-Hilālī’s departure from Germany in 1942 and his vicissitudes thereafter in Spanish Morocco. Chapter Six discusses Al-Hilālī time in Iraq, where he had settled from 1947 to 1959. Chapter Seven shows how Al-Hilālī was able to lead an active intellectual and religious life in Morocco after Independence.
