Deposed President Morsi was a member of the Muslim Brotherhood.
The ruling specifically banned “all activities by the group, and any affiliated institutions.’’
The court recommended that the cabinet forms an independent committee to follow up on the implementation of the ruling.
The movement, founded in 1928, has been banned in Egypt for decades but was largely tolerated by the regime of Hosny Mubarak.
Following Mubarak’s ouster in 2011, it launched its own political party, the Freedom and Justice Party.
It was not immediately clear whether the ruling would affect the Muslim Brotherhood’s political party as well.
Authorities have launched a crackdown on the group since Mr. Morsi was ousted by the military on July 3.
Most leaders of the Brotherhood have been detained on charges of inciting violence.
Several hundreds of supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood were also killed, largely by state security personnel, during rallies to protest the ouster of Mr. Morsi.
