Prophet Noble Drew Ali
The Moorish Science Temple of America (a religious corporation) was founded by our Divine Prophet Noble Drew Ali in 1913 A.D.
We have consistently demonstrated plans for the betterment of mankind, teaching those things that make our people better citizens. In our missionary work, we encourage those through example that our social, moral and economic condition can be better.
We are Moslems who have accepted the religion of our Ancient forefathers (Islamism). Our nationality is Moorish American, and our Divine and National Principles are Love, Truth, Peace, Freedom and Justice. By proclaiming our nationality and divine creed we have met
the constitutional standards of law of the United States of America, therefore having and enjoying a political status in our Government.
As followers of our Divine Prophet Noble Drew Ali, we are also dramatically involved in the Great Program of Uplifting Fallen Humanity. In connection with our religious aims and beliefs, we promote economic security to provide better positions for our boys and girls.
The Moorish Science Temple of America is actively involved in obtaining economic power, which assures us unity and the enjoyment of the genuine spirituality of life.
We are teaching that our people are Asiatics (Moorish Americans), thereby removing those marks of "negro, black and colored", which by law are unconstitutional and cannot be found in any of the True and Divine Records of the Human Race.
Our weekly meetings are open to the public for our people who think that their condition can be better. We welcome help from sympathizers as well.
