Islamische Gemeinschaft Millî Görüş (Islamic Community Millî Görüş) is the German regional section of Millî Görüş. Millî Görüş (English: National Outlook or National Vision) is a religio-political movement and a series of Islamist parties inspired by Necmettin Erbakan. It has been called one of "the leading Turkish diaspora organizations in Europe" and also described as the largest Islamic organization operating in the West.

Millî Görüş was founded as an anti-secular and anti-Western movement in Turkey in 1967. Even though the German section has distanced itself from some of the statements of the Turkish section due to their anti-semitism, critics still believe the organisation to be trying to implement an Islamic society in Germany.
Millî Görüş is monitored by the Constitutional Protection Service of Germany for wanting to implement Sharia in Germany. The Service regards them as a central organisation of "legalistic Islamism" in Germany.
The Islamic Community Milli Görüs (ICMG) is today the most influential Islamist organization in Germany, and one of the most important Islamist movements operating within the Turkish Diaspora in Europe. The movement claims to operate over 514 mosques and cultural centers in eleven European countries; 323 of these institutions are located in Germany. ICMG’s total European membership is about 87,000, with an estimated 30,000 members in Germany. The organization estimates that about 300,000 people in Europe attend its religious services on a weekly basis.
