Our Position

The Moorish Science Temple of America is a religious corporation founded by our Divine Prophet Noble Drew Ali in 1913 A.D.

"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."

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.

"Come all ye Asiatics of America and hear the truth about your nationality and divine Creed."

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What does a nationality do for me?

A: Nationality links you to the family of nations and affords you the rights and enjoyments of first class citizenship in the United States of America.

Everyone else has nationality:

  • Germans are tied to Germany,
  • Russians to Russia,
  • Japanese to Japan,
  • Chinese to China, etc.

Where is the so-called "black man" linked to?

What is the so-called "black" person's nationality?

His nationality is Moorish American.

Q: How do I know I’m Moorish American?

A: The Moorish Americans are the descendants of the ancient Moabites who inhabited the North Western and South Western shores of Africa.

The marks of “black”, “colored”, “negro”, “afro-american”, “african-american”, "american descendant of slaves", etc., were given to slaves by slaveholders in 1779 and lasted until 1865 during the time of slavery. If you consider yourself any of these names, you are a Moor.

Q: What happens if I do not proclaim my nationality?

A: Those who  fail to recognize the free national name of their constitutional government are classed as undesirables, and are subject to all Inferior names and abuses and mistreatments that the citizens care to bestow upon them.

Q: Why is it so important now for us to proclaim our nationality?

A: It is as important now to proclaim your nationality as it was when the Prophet first brought us our nationality in 1913 A.D.
