The Islamic Education Department (IED) is a division of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA). According to ISNA for Islam and Muslims: Lighting the Way to Unity, a mid-1990s ISNA brochure: “This department addresses one of the greatest concerns of Muslim families today: providing quality, Islamic education to our children. Through programs such as textbook review and development of a standardized, approved curriculum the [IED] intends to consult and advise Islamic centers as they build part-time and full-time schools.”

IED's original name (from 1982-1989) was the Foundation for Islamic Education (FIE), based in Plainfield, Indiana (where ISNA is located). A former director of IED was Shaker el-Sayyid, who today serves as Imam of Dar Al Hijrah (a mosque in Falls Church, Virginia) and is an official of the Muslim American Society.

IED was named in a May 1991 Muslim Brotherhood document -- titled "An Explanatory Memorandum on the General Strategic Goal for the Group in North America" -- as one of the Brotherhood’s 29 likeminded "organizations of our friends" that shared the common goal of destroying America and turning it into a Muslim nation. These "friends" were identified by the Brotherhood as groups that could help teach Muslims "that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and 'sabotaging' its miserable house by their hands ... so that ... God's religion [Islam] is made victorious over all other religions."

Also named in the Muslim Brotherhood document were:
