Sayyid ibn Aziz formed this group. In the beginning it was him and a few of his disciples. Then he managed to become involved in an informal, Islamic mutant youth group that called themselves the Attilan Islamic Mutant Youth Society (AIMYS), originally liberal and dedicated to mutant-human integration. They had many discussions, but slowly something changed with the group. The leaders became under his influence and they slowly started to preach two things: mutant superiority and Islamic fundamentalism. They really came to the attention of the Attilan authorities and the X-Men after attempting to kidnap Sooraya Qadir who had been a member of AIMYS and who is supposed to play a large role in Sayyid’s ultimate plan. These attempts were foiled though and Sooraya left Attilan.
Achmed, Sooraya’s prospective husband, was arrested soon after and Sooraya was summoned to testify. Sayyid used the opportunity to liberate Achmed and kidnap Sooraya. At the end she was rescued by the X-Men and Sayyid, Achmed and various henchmen are in custody.
In March 2012 Sayyid escaped prison with the help of Mahad and some of his other disciples.
