The Moorish Science Temple of America is a religious corporation 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.

Where is the so-called "black man" linked to?
What is the so-called "black" person's nationality?
His nationality is 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.
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.
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.
A: Moorish Science Temple of America is a religious corporation (jural society). It is a Divine and National Movement which teaches you to be yourself — Moorish American.
A: The definition of a moslem is simply someone who submits his will to do the will of God (Allah).
A: There is no difference. A moslem is one who submits his / her will to do the will of God (Allah). When Islam was brought to the Arab nation, they pronounced the word "muslim" instead of moslem.
A: Terrorists are not moslems; in fact, they are fanatics. If someone is doing anything other than following the will of God they are not moslems.
We do not support any act of terror -- at all.
A: No. With us all members must proclaim their nationality and we are teaching our people their nationality and their Divine Creed that they may know that they are a part and a partial of this said government.
