Early life and education
Mohamed Atta was born on September 1, 1968 in Kafr el-Sheikh, in Egypt's Nile delta region. His father was a lawyer, educated in both Sharia ans civil law. His mother came from a wealthy farming and trading family and was also educated.
When Atta was ten, his family moved to the Cairo neighbourhood of Abdeen, located near the center in the city. Atta's father continued to keep the family private, and did not allow Atta to socialize with other neighbourhood kids. Atta spent most of his time at home studying, excelling in school.
In 1985 Atta entered Cairo University, where he studied engineering. As one of the highest-scoring students, Atta was admitted into the very selective architecture program during his senior year.
In 1990, Atta graduated with a degree in architecture, and joined the Muslim Brotherhood-affiliated Engineers Syndicate organization.
Upon graduating from Cairo University, Atta's marks were average and insufficient to be accepted into the University's graduate program. His father insisted he go abroad for graduate studies, and had Atta enroll in a German langauge program at the Goethe Institute in Cairo.
In 1992, Atta's father invited a German couple over for diner while they were visiting Cairo. The german couple ran an exchange program between Germany and Egypt, ans suggested that Atta continue his studies in Germany. They offered him a temporary place to live at their house in the city. Mohamed Atta ended up in Germany two weeks later, in July 1992.
In Germany, Atta enrolled in the urban planning graduate program at the Technical University of Hamburg-Harburg.
Atta initially stayed with the two high school teachers, but they found Atta frustating owing to his closed-mindedness and intensely introverted personality.
Atta also began adhering to a strictly Islamic diet, frequented the mosque, seldom socialized, and was unfriendly towards the couple's unmarried daughter who had a young child. After six months, they asked him to move out.
By early 1993, Atta had moved into university housing, sharing an apartment in Centrumshaus with two roommates.
After coming to Hamburg in 1992, Atta became more religious, frequently attending the mosque.
Atta went back to Egypt on August 1, 1995, for three months of study. Before going to Egypt, he grew a beard, which is a sign of a devout Muslim, but was also seen as a political gesture. Atta returned to Hamburg on October 31, 1995, and joined the pilgimage to Mecca that fall.
In Hamburg, Atta was drawn to al-Quds Mosque, which adhered to a "harsh, uncompromisingly fundamentalist, and resoundingly militant" version of the Sunni Islam.
On April 11, 1996, Atta signed his last will and testament at the mosque, officially declaring his Muslim beliefs and giving 18 instructions regarding his burial. This was the day that Israel attacked Lebanon in Operation Grapes of Wrath, which outraged Atta. Signing the will, "offering his life" was Atta's response. The will was signed by el-Motassadeq and a second individual at the mosque.
At the winter break in 1997, Atta disappeared again and did not return until 1998. He said that he went on pilgrimage to Mecca again, just 18 months after his first time. That is highly unusual. When Atta returned, he claimed that his passport was lost and got a new one, which is a common tactic to erase evidence of travel to places such as Afghanistan. When he returned in spring 1998, he had grown a thick long beard.
In mid-1998, Atta moved into a nearby apartment in Wilhelmsburg, where he lived with Said Bahaji and Ramzi bin al-Shibh.
Next winter, they moved into an apartment at Marienstrasse 54, near the university inHamburg. It was here that the "Hambrg cell" developed and acted more as a group. They met three or four times a week to discuss their anti-American feelings and to plot possible attacks
In late 1999, Atta, Shehhi, Jarrah Bahaji, and bin al-Shibh decided to travel to Chechnya to fight against the Russians, but were convinced by Khalid al-Masri and Mohamedou Ould Slahi at the last minute to change their plans. They instead traveled to Afghanistan over a two-week period in late November. On November 29, 1999, Mohamed Ata boarded Turkish Airlines Flight TK 1662 from Hamburg to Instanbul, where he changed to flight TK 1056 to Karachi, Pakistan. When they arrived, they were spotted by Al Qaeda leader Abu Hafs as suitable candidates for the "planes operation" plot. They were all well-educated, had experience of living in western society, along with some English skills, and would be able to obtain visas.
Even before Bin al-Shibh had arrived, Atta, Shehhi, and Jarrah were sent to the House of Ghamdi near bin Laden's home in Kandahar, where he was waiting to meet them. Bin Laden asked them to pledge loyality and commit to suicide missions, which Atta and the other three Hamburg men all accepted. Bin Laden sent them to see Mahammed Atef to get a general overview of the mission, and they were sent to Karachi to see Khalid Sheikh Mohammed to go over specifics.
A video surfaced in October 2006 which showed bin Laden at Tarnak Farms on January 8, 2000, and also showed Atta together with Ziad Jarrah reading their wills ten days later on January 18, 2000. On his return journey, Atta left Karachi on February 24, 2000 by flight TK 1057 to Istanbul where he changed to flight TK 1661 to Hamburg. Immediately after returning to Gemany, Atta, Shehhi, and Jarrah reported their passports stolen, possible to discard travel visas to Afghanistan.
In the United States.
On March 22, 2000, while still in germany, Mohamed Atta sent a e-mail tot the Academy of Lakeland in Florida, inquiring about flight training.
Atta began flight training on July 7, 2000, and continued training nearly every day.
