    The only thing I've discovered is that Freemasonry was banned in Egypt in 1964. The acceptance of Freemasonry in predominately Islamic countries is hit or miss, some allow it, some don't. It's unfortunate, because Freemasonry welcomes Men of all Faiths. Even members of the Roman Catholic Church can be ex-communicated if they join a Masonic Lodge so it's not just an Islamic issue. I wish I could provide you with more information but hopefully someone more knowledgeable than I will comment. Good luck in your journey!

    I can understand why Freemasonry has a hostile reception in majority Muslim countries. It was brought by foreign imperialists, and those natives who joined often gained advantages when dealing with the foreign invaders. Likewise, given the history of European meddling in the region, a significant amount of Freemasonry was introduced by the post-Revolution French, which meant it was explicitly atheist.

    Masonry in the Islamic world is often illegal and therefore, very underground and secretive.

    You need a personal invitation and nobody is going to be able to invite based on internet knowledge only Pharaoh. Its to dangerous.

    All things are possible and Masonry is alive and well. You just need to express an interest subtly in the right circles.
