MOORISH HOLY TEMPLE OF SCIENCE OF THE WORLD

MOORISH HISTORICAL ORIGINS AND MYSTICAL CONNECTIONS

As stated in “THE MUQARRABEEN FILES”are “the following information is results of a historical research quest that I took upon myself over two decades ago. Many of the documents appear just as they were presented to me i.e., old, yellow, cracked and, sometimes, faded. My reasoning? So that you, the reader, could see the data in the same manner as I did. This approach allows the reader to see just how or upon what, my conclusions were reached. If you agree or disagree with my conclusion, just consider and remember, my conclusions are based upon my “findings”, personal experiences, background, academic advancements and height of spiritual consciousness. You will note that the sources from which much of this information has been obtained has also been included for the reader’s personal investigation. This information is not designed to answer all your questions. But, rather, to give the reader a framework of facts and information that could lead to or allow the reader to arrive at the truth. It shows us what was i.e., those things/events that did take place and gives us some insight into the actions that brought about many of die decisions of the past, correct or incorrect as they may have been.”

THE ‘FIRST’ NATION OF ISLAM – “THE BEN ISHMAEL TRIBE!”

The earliest source we have on the Tribe of Ben Ishmael is Rev. Oscar C. McCulloch, “THE TRIBE OF ISHMAEL: A STUDY IN SOCIAL DEGRADATION” (1888)

Another source on the “Ben Ishmael Tribe” per se is an essay by Hugo Prosper Leaming, “THE BEN ISHMAEL TRIBE: FUGITIVE NATION OF THE OLD NORTHWEST” originally published in 1977.

Update, Jan. 2009: New scholarship on this subject, including a new book and revisited primary documents, refutes the central aspects of the accepted mythology of the “Ben Ishmael tribe.” Nathaniel Deutsch, “INVENTING AMERICA’S “WORST” FAMILY: EUGENICS, ISLAM, AND THE FALL AND RISE OF THE TRIBE OF ISHMAEL” (University of California Press, 2009)… all three comes from an Euro-centric point of view… in other words, racist. Nevertheless, we will put together the pieces of the puzzle the best way we can.

In the late 18th/early 19th century groups of runaway slaves (African Mandinka descent) from Florida (Seminoles / Yamassees), the eastern seaboard (Tuscaroras, Cherokees), and serfs fled from Kentucky (the fewest) ‘poor (so-called) whites’ (indentured “servants” from Scottish-Irish [Celtic] descent) who became known as the ‘Melungeons’, into the Ohio Territory (Ben Ishmaelite Tribe) estimated to number about 10,000 – hence they were called “tri-racial isolates”. Some of these groups had clearly been “founded” (at least partly) by Moslem/Muslim maroons (escaped slaved). The Melungeons descend from Moorish “convertados” brought as slave-labor to Florida by Spain and abandoned there. The Delaware Moors, the Louisiana Turks, and the Ben Ishmael Tribe of Ohio, all reveal Islamic connections. There they inter-married with Natives (Shawnees) who had lost their land to the early colonists and had moved inland to territory set aside for them by their allied tribes. Together they formed a new tribe – called the Ben Ishmael tribe. The Ishmaelites followed an annual nomadic route through the territory, hunting & fishing, and finding work as tinkers and minstrels, carpenters and tradesmen. They were polygamists, drank no alcohol, & sang and danced to show their reverence for life. Every winter they returned to their original settlement, where a village had grown.”After a century of fierce culture conflict with the majority society, the tribe was forcibly dispersed. Camp sites became nuclei of present-day (so-called) black communities, and Ishmaelites of the diaspora participated in the rise of said ‘Black Nationalism’, perhaps even contributing memories of African (American) Islam to the new (so-called) Black Muslim movements.”

Early History of the Ben Ishmael Tribe

“The first appearance of the organized tribe occurred between 1785 and 1790 in the hills, or ‘Refuse land,’ of Bourbon (then Noble) County, Kentucky. Those who became Ishmaelites had gathered from Tennessee, the Carolinas (North and South), Virginia, and Maryland, in a region still largely wilderness and at a time still turmoiled by the Native American wars and mass slave escapes of the American Revolution.”

The first patriarch of the Ishmaelites was Ben Ishmael, who led the group along with his wife and the group’s first “queen”, Jennie Ishmael (“a warrioress of mighty physique”). According to Ishmaelite tradition, sometime between 1802 and 1810 Patriarch Ben Ishmael and Queen Jennie “at an advanced age…set forth into the unknown, toward the setting sun, never to be seen again by their people.”

Their eldest son John became the second patriarch and, due to Kentucky’s increasing settlement as a slave state, led the Ishmaelites northward across the Ohio River. Initially, they settled in an area between present-day Cincinnati and Dayton but by 1819 or so they had moved into what was still “Indian territory” and settled in the deep woods along White River in the area that became Indianapolis. The Ishmaelites enjoyed extremely friendly relations with the local Native American peoples (including the Delaware Moors, called the Nanticokes, a branch of the Lenni Le’Nape people), who evidently viewed them as a kind of “defeated brother-nation.”

According to an 1884 history of Indianapolis and Marion County by B.R. Sulgrove, in 1821 when the first white surveyors and officials came to the area to stake out what was to become the capitol of the new state of Indiana they discovered the Ishmaelites living there along both sides of White River. Since they refused to budge, Indianapolis grew around their settlement. These Ishmaelite settlements became, much later, the loci of the oldest and longest-lasting black neighborhoods of the city.

There are modern-day cities and towns along the Ishmaelite migration route which have names showing an obvious Islamic influence: Morocco, IN; Mahomet, IL (the oldest settlement in Champaign County); and Mecca, IN being three. This is in stark contrast to all other place-names in the area, which are of French, British, and other white provenance.

Ishmaelite Tribal Structure

“Reports frequently mention nobility and other notable members of the tribe of Ishmael, persons of striking character who were especially esteemed by the Ishmaelites. The reports are silent on the tribe’s system of government, its assemblies, whether there was a council of elders, and the relationship between leaders and members in decision-making. However, there was clearly a social hierarchy; and the reverence for paramount families, the character ascribed to notables, and the general pride of Ishmaelites in their tribe indicate the existence of a leadership and prestige group that warrants the term nobility.”

The Ben Ishmael tribe consisted of 13 clans, each of which drew its name from the paramount family within the clan. All nuclear families within the Ben Ishmael tribe belonged to one of these clans, and new members joined by birth, marriage, or adoption into one of the nuclear families. Of the family names reported to state authorities, with the exception of Ishmael (Hebrew) and the African and Native name, few were “unremarkable Celtic names.”

Child rearing was shared amongst members of extended families and clans, which likely fed later charges by white authorities of child neglect, due to their fundamental misunderstanding of the Ishmaelite culture in this regard.

The Ishmaelites had their own marriage traditions, another source of conflict with the surrounding white settler culture. For wedding ceremonies, “officiants” were respected figures who stepped forward, but were not ministers in any western European sense. Most families were monogamous, but polygamy was occasionally practiced by both men and women — when it was, it was done openly and apparently without shame. Divorce was not common, but was not stigmatized as in the so-called white Christian culture of the time. Divorce could be obtained “by mutual consent or on the demand of either partner.”

Women in Ishmaelite Society

“In contrast to the majority society, Ishmaelite women played important public roles in activities requiring physical strength and courage, as spiritual leaders, and as leaders of clan and tribe. More female than male nobles or notables of the clans appear in the case studies. The queens of the tribe were not merely the consorts of the patriarchs but important personages in their own right.”

“Polly H., director of an important dance hall center, is said to have held ‘rank.’ Susan S., daughter of Jehu S., is described as a remarkable character in the tribe, a superior being to whom homage was paid. Her funeral procession was marked by the rushing of the hearse and tribal carts at breakneck speed through a torrential downpour; it was referred to long after by the majority community as the day Susan ‘Ishmael’ was buried. Another enigmatic leader, Sarah Ishmael, tall and ‘rawboned’ like so many of the early Ishmaelites, is said to have been ‘very prominent.’ Perhaps a spiritual leader, she was called ‘the Ishmaelite woman who walks like a man and talks bass.’ She had had four husbands, and it was she who was first to leave and last to return on each annual migration. Her people had many oral legends about her.”

Spiritual Traditions of the Ben Ishmael Tribe

Suffice to say that Professor Leaming claims there are clear indications of a strong Islamic (or neo-Islamic) influence. Even so, the remnant of Al Islam and African spirituality, mixed with Native American and Celtic traditions and customs became the bulk of spirituality amongst the Ben Ishmaelites.

Music and the Ishmaelites

Music was a crucial focal point for the Ben Ishmael tribe. It “has been reported as a distinctive kind of music. The tribe was well known for its large and frequent gatherings to sing. The voices could be heard far away, singing ‘the jollyest, noisiest songs.’ These were not the songs of the majority community; they are described as ‘quaint,’ with ‘some jingle of words’ and ‘some music.’ There were many instrumentalists, some sought after by the majority community for its social events, such as a highly esteemed harpist and ‘the blind fiddler,’ who was reported to have been one of the finest musicians in the Midwest.

“…There was a…dance hall in each Ishmaelite neighborhood. The dance was the tribe’s passionate recreation. In the centers the Ishmaelites, cramped into winter quarters, passed the time dancing, singing, listening to their musicians, talking flirting, eating, but not drinking alcohol, a habit they eschewed.”

Ishmaelite Buildings and Architecture in Indianapolis

During their annual migrations, the Ishmaelites mainly employed simple one-night lean-tos. However, more substantial structures were built at the cardinal points of their migratory route, as well as small cabins — “sturdy and well proportioned, with tightly crafted windows and doors” — used by tribe members for winter quarters in Indianapolis.

“Identifiable cabins still stood in 1970, [then] used as sheds behind more recent homes. Also in that year, at the Ishmaelite or river end of the oldest black neighborhoods of Indianapolis, there stood sizable wooden ‘Gothic’ houses, apparently not designed by professional architects, with unusual decorations across their fronts: stars, circles, triangles, and other geometric shapes cut out of flat pieces of unpainted wood and attached in regular order to the structure. That these might relate to the Ishmaelites is suggested by a similar but larger cutout of the sun, with rays attached, across the upper front of one of the still existing Ishmaelite cabins…”

There is a surviving description of a large home at the White River wintering grounds, owned by Robert Chism (called “Papa” and “Grandpa” by the community) and his wife Milly Brown. It was a “three-story house with the unusual design that may have been characteristic of the homes of Ishmaelite leaders. The access system was particularly strange and — it would appear — difficult to describe: the second and third floors were entered by a small stairway, and by a ‘half stairs’ and ‘half ladder’ arrangement in the rear, apparently over the roof of a detached kitchen shed. The mansion [sic] was a refuge, with a dozen places for hiding and escape. In particular, Chism gave sanctuary to the poor who were sought for imprisonment in the poor houses or for sale as bound servants.”

“…The tribe sometimes built in monumental dimensions. The winter home of Tom Ishmael, son of Patriarch John and grandson of Ben Ishmael, located in the northern sector of the migration route, was a vast log cabin, three-cornered and in other unspecified ways of a most curious design. In the majority community it was famed as the most unusually shaped structure in the state of Indiana…

“Another monumental building of the tribe was its central communal dance hall on the west bank of the White River, across from downtown Indianapolis. Its great size, its posts sunk twenty feet into the muddy ground, and materials obtained entirely from Ishmaelite scavenging, excited the pride of Ishmaelites and the gruding admiration of outsiders…

“[Other] central Ishmaelite dance hall social centers were the Christian Hill Place, the Crib, and the Big Bonanza; outlying were Brighton Beach, Hop-light Station, and the Nest, which may be the present well-to-do neighborhood ‘The Crow’s Nest,’ elevated ground commanding a long view up and down the river.”

Forced sterilization of social undesirables was first introduced in the US (as a kinder alternative to castration) at the Indiana State Reformatory. Its superintendent, Dr. Oscar C. McCulloch (author of one of the eugenics-oriented Ishmaelite studies), began to agitate for the enactment of eugenics laws. In 1905 such a bill was introduced in the Indiana legislature, and in 1907 the first compulsory sterilization law in the world was enacted by the state of Indiana. These laws and the ideas embodied within them became known as “The Indiana Plan,” and served as the basis for eugenics laws later passed in 29 states by 1931 and, ultimately, in Nazi Germany and six other European countries.

It is precisely during this period of 1900-1910 that the Ben Ishmael tribe vanished, fleeing Indiana and blending into the surrounding communities, perhaps as far as Detroit. In the early 1970s, one researcher found faint traces in oral tradition among the black communities of the Great Lakes region that spoke of the Ben Ishmael tribe. According to one account, as late as the 1950s or early 1960s a man “encountered persons who referred to themselves as Ishmaelites by descent and identified with the heritage of a Midwestern Tribe of Ishmael. They were still nomadic, traveling by car between Detroit and Philadelphia. They were definitely black nationalists and also had their own dietary laws; but he was never able to determine whether they considered theirs to be a religious or political movement.”

When the Eugenics movement was looking for examples of ‘degenerate peoples’ to prove their ideas, they found the perfect scapegoats in the non-conformist Ishmaels, and they became their first success story. They succeeded in nearly whipping out the population and drove the surviving members underground. There the Ishmaels, sometimes called “REDS” in part due to their mixed ancestry and often-reddish hair, became founding members of the American Black Islamic movement and strong civil rights fighters. They have added much culture and variety to the American cultural landscape, and for it have received almost no recognition at all in mainstream culture.

As suggested by the above, some of these accounts as well as wisps found in other research suggest the Ishmaelite diaspora played a role in the development of secular and Muslim black nationalist groups and movements throughout the Midwest, as well as the founding of mosques and small Islamic sects in the region, notably Moorish Science (which was associated with Marcus Garvey’s movement in the ’20s and was also later acknowledged as a forerunner by the Nation of Islam). It has been suggested by Hakim H.Y. Bey

Paschal Beverly Randolph

Paschal Beverly Randolph [October 8, 1825– July 29, 1875]. According to Herald’s College of England, Dr. Randolph’s mother was of Moorish
descent. According to A.E. Waite, establishing the earliest known Rosicrucian order in the United States. Paschal Beverly Randolph was an American medical doctor, occultist and writer. He visited England, Scotland, Ireland, France, Malta, Egypt, Arabia, Syria, Palestine, Turkey and Greece. “Randolph introduced the principles of sex magic (Tantra Yoga) to North America. Two twentieth century occultists and practitioners of sex magic, Theodor Reuss of Germany and Aleister Crowley of Great Britain, were heavily influenced by Randolph in both organizing the Ordo Templi Orientis (O.T.O.) and in their sex magic rituals. He was also a teacher of Helena P. Blavatsky. She referred to him as “Morya”, one of the “Ascended Master.” Randolph, who traveled to Europe in 1854, and he met occult magician Éliphas Lévi. In Paris, Yarker met Pascal Beverly Randolph, he was initiated by a secret priestess of the Ismaili Muslims. Yarker passed on the tradition of the Hermetic Brotherhood of Luxor, which was reborn as the Hermetic Brotherhood of Light, a continuation of the Frates Lucis or Asiatic Brethren. In 1858 the Supreme Grand Dome met in Paris. The Conclave was opened by the Supreme Grand Master Eliphas Levi. In due order, at the behest of the Supreme Hierarch, gave up his seat as Supreme Grand Master of the Supreme Grand Dome(4), and Randolph was inducted before the Altar of the Three Fleur de Lis, and took the oath of both L’Ordre du Lis and as a Supreme Grand Master of the Supreme Grand Dome. After taking his seat, the Grand Ritual was performed, he stepped down from the chair, handed the Wand to Count Guinotti, who proceeded to recall Supreme Grand Master Levi to his seat and the proper officers proceeded to Initiate Dr. Randolph into his office as Supreme Grand Master of the Fraternitas Rosæ Crucis for the Western World [North, Central and South America] and the Isles of the Sea; (essentially, he was the Supreme Grand Master of All the Rosicrucians in the World, i.e. Head of the Illuminati).
Sayyid Jamāl-al-Dīn al-Afghānī ud Din Bey Effendi

Sayyid Jamāl-al-Dīn al-Afghānī ud Din Bey Effendi [1838-1897]. He was a Pan-Islamist, a Master Adept, a Sufi scholar and teacher, a Muslim politician and a journalist. He founded a Masonic lodge, the Eastern Star. In Egypt during the mid 1800s Madame Blavatsky met and was taught by Jamal ad-Din al-Afghan, who she refers to a “Serapis Bey” one of the “Secret Chiefs”, or “Ascended Masters”, (others were “Morya” [Paschal Beverly Randolph], “Tuitit Bey,” “Koot Hoomi” and“Hilarion”, all pseudonyms, who purportedly belonged to the “The Asiastic Brethren” or “The Hermetic Brotherhood of Luxor,” who were aiding humanity to evolve into a race of supermen. The Master Adept Jamal ad-Din al-Afghani turned up in America around the winter of 1882-1883. Al-Afghani is said to have been joined by his disciple chief initiate, Mohammed Abduh. the two missionaries had come to the united States to propagate the doctrine of ancestral and cultural pride under the banner of Pan Islam, which is meant to insure that the divine teaching of the ancestors are not forgotten among the Moors of North America (Amexem). It is said the Moorish National Divine Movement was founded on these teachings (Sufism) by Prophet noble Drew Ali. Eliza Turner and John Drew Quitman studied under Jamal al-Afghani, who were the parents of the man who would one day establish (M.H.T.S.) Moorish Holy Temple of Science / (M.S.T.A.) Moorish Science Temple of America and etc… At the hand of Jamal al-Afghani,the Drew family was inducted into the “sacred order”, known as “The Asiastic Brethren” or “The Brethen of Purity” brotherhood or “The Hermetic Brotherhood of Luxor.” In his early teenage years of Timothy Drew traveled to Egypt and study among the great “neophytes,” of Jamal al-Afghani and Muhammad Abduh. while at Alzhar University, Drew Ali came under the influence of Mohammed Rashid Ridi (1865-1935) and Aziz al-Masri Bey(1878-1965), as well as the great Egyptian nationalist Duse Mohamed Ali-Effendi (1866-1945) who lived in London, England at the time. Drew Ali is said to have studied at the old Ethiopian College in Vatican City (Rome, Italy) (read more below “THE MOORISH AMERICAN PROPHET NOBLE DREW ALI” by Professor Ravanna Bey).
Madame Blavatsky

Madame Blavatsky (1831-1891) In Egypt during the mid 1800s Madame Blavatsky studied Sufism, Coptic Christianity, and the Druze order which she described as “a last survival of archaic wisdom.” Claiming to be a student of her Master “Serapis Bey,” while in Cairo Madame Blavatsky met Jamal ad-Din al-Afghani, an outstanding Muslim thinker, radical political leader and Sufi teacher. After writing monumental works such as “ISIS UNVEILED”, and “THE SECRET DOCTRINE”, the Theosophical Society was formed in 1875. Among the early members was also Rudolph Steiner, founder of the Anthrosophical Society, Albert Pike 33rd degree Mason and Manly P. Hall, a leading Masonic historian and founder of the Philosophical Society (Read “THE MOORISH AMERICAN PROPHET NOBLE DREW ALI” by Professor Ravanna Bey).

Subconsciouscelebrity wrote “She only know this because they taught it to them. Not only were Moors well versed in it, they were the originators of these schools. Now, their descendants are scared of occult science and believe it is a European art of some kind. We only study that of the 1600s-current without going way way way back. It is a well known fact that the School of Salmanac (hence Salam) was issuing degrees for a Wizard program they had during the Medieval Era. The Toledo School of Translations is still standing and was fully functional in the 12th and 13th centuries. As we all know, the Moors ruled Europe until 1492 so make no mistake about it, the Moors are also the mothers and fathers of occult sciences as well (hidden culture of the unseen). Why you think the European branch off of occult science (known as Wicca) love the moon phases ☪️, they honor the five pointed star ⭐️, they honor Friday’s ESPECIALLY any Friday the 13th (M is the 13th letter), the seasons(Law of Rhythm), Tehutis Laws (Kybalion), etc. Take back your magick and use it! Also research these schools of Magic (thought). Today they will be referred to as schools of translation (language/spells) or schools of “Natural Law”
Annie Besant

Annie Besant (1 October 1847 – 20 September 1933), in 1907 she became President of the Theosophical Society. She was a women’s rights activist, a writer and an orator and a Woman Freemason, initiated into known now as The International Order of Co-Free
masonry, Le Droit Humain. She became the Most Puissant Grand Commander. In 1909, Leadbeater “discovered” fourteen-year-old Jiddu Krishnamurti (1895–1986), and declared him the probable “vehicle” for the expected World Teacher. In 1929,
Krishnamurti, grown disenchanted with the World Teacher Project, repudiated the role that many Theosophists expected him to fulfill. He dissolved the Order of the Star in the East, an organization founded to assist the World Teacher in his mission, and eventually left the Theosophical Society. Duse Muhammad Ali Effendi-Bey was assisted financially in launching the African Times and Orient Review paper. Among the writers in the ATOR were George Bernard Shaw, H. G. Wells, Lord Lytton, Annie Besant, Sir Harry H. Johnston, Henry Francis Downing, William H. Ferris and Marcus Garvey. The journal covered issues in the United States, the Caribbean, West Africa, South Africa, and Egypt, as well as in Asia, including India, China, and Japan.
Muhammad Abduh

Muhammad Abduh – (Nile Delta, 1849 – Alexandria, July 11, 1905) was an Egyptian jurist, religious scholar and liberal reformer, regarded as the founder of Islamic Modernism. A book titled “ISLAM AND LIBERTY” regarded Muhammad Abduh as the founder of the so-called Neo-Mutazilism. He was educated by a private tutor and a reciter of the Quran. When he turned thirteen he was sent to the Aḥmadī mosque which was one of the largest educational institutions in Egypt. He enrolled at al-Azhar in 1866. Abduh studied logic, philosophy and mysticism at the Al-Azhar University in Cairo. He was a student of Jamal al-Din al-Afghani, a philosopher and religious reformer who advocated Pan-Islamism to resist European colonialism. Under al-Afghani’s influence, Abduh combined journalism, politics, and his own fascination in mystic spirituality. Al-Afghani taught Abduh about the problems of Egypt and the Islamic world and about the technological achievements of the west. In 1877, Abduh was granted the degree of Alim and he started to teach logic, theology and ethics at al-Azhar. He was appointed professor of history at Cairo’s teachers’ training college Dār al-ʿUlūm in 1878. He was also appointed to teach Arabic at the Khedivial School of Languages. According to Abduh, a teacher’s role was to direct men towards study. He believed that Islam encouraged men to detach from the world of their ancestors and that Islam reproved the slavish imitation of tradition. He said that the two greatest possessions relating to religion that man was graced with were independence of will and independence of thought and opinion. It was with the help of these tools that he could attain happiness. He believed that the growth of western civilization in Europe was based on these two principles. He thought that Europeans were roused to act after a large number of them were able to exercise their choice and to seek out facts with their minds. Abduh was appointed editor and chief of al-Waqāʾiʿ al-Miṣriyya, the official newspaper of the state. He believed that education was the best way to achieve this goal. He was in favor of a good religious education which would strengthen a child’s morals and a scientific education which would nurture a child’s ability to reason. In his articles he criticized corruption, superstition, and the luxurious lives of the rich. He was exiled from Egypt in 1882 for six years, for supporting the Urabi Revolt. He had stated that every society should be allowed to choose a suitable form of government based on its history and its present circumstances. Later that year (1882-1883), he joined his teacher Jamal al Afghani in the United States. Abduh often quoted, “I went to the West and saw Islam, but no Muslims; I got back to the East and saw Muslims, but not Islam.” Abduh spent several years in Lebanon where he helped establish an Islamic educational system. In 1884 he moved to Paris, France where he joined al-Afghani in publishing “THE FIRMEST BOND” (al-Urwah al-Wuthqa), an Islamic revolutionary journal that promoted anti-British views. Abduh also visited Britain and discussed the state of Egypt and Sudan with high-ranking officials. In 1885, he returned to Beirut and was surrounded by scholars from different religious backgrounds. During his stay there he dedicated his efforts toward furthering respect and friendship between Islam, Christianity and Judaism. When he returned to Egypt in 1888, Abduh began his legal career. He was appointed judge in the Courts of First Instance of the Native Tribunals and in 1890, he became a consultative member of the Court of Appeal. In 1899, he was appointed Mufti of Egypt and he held this position until he died. While he was in Egypt, Abduh founded a religious society, became president of a society for the revival of Arab sciences and worked towards reforming al-Azhar by putting forth proposals to improve examinations, the curriculum and the working conditions for both professors and students. He travelled a great deal and met with European scholars in Cambridge and Oxford. He studied French law and read a great many European and Arab works in the libraries of Vienna and Berlin. The conclusions he drew from his travels were that Muslims suffer from ignorance about their own religion and the despotism of unjust rulers. He believed in a form of Islam that would liberate men from enslavement, provide equal rights for all human beings, abolish the religious scholar’s monopoly on exegesis and abolish racial discrimination and religious compulsion. Muhammad Abduh died on 11 July 1905. People from all around the world sent their condolences (Read “THE MOORISH AMERICAN NOBLE DREW ALI” by Professor Ravanna Bey).
Muhammad Rashid Rida

Muhammad Rashid Rida – Ottoman Syria, 23 September 1865–Egypt, 22 August 1935) is said to have been “one of the most influential scholars and jurists of his generation” and the “most prominent disciple of Muhammad Abduh” Rida was born near Tripoli in Al-Qalamoun, now in Lebanon but then part of Ottoman Syria within the Ottoman Empire). He attended the National Islamic School in Tripoli, founded by Shaykh Husayn al-Jisr (1845-1909). The curriculum offered both traditional subjects normally studied by the ‘ulama’ and some modern subjects like European languages and mathematics. In 1884-5 he was first exposed to al-`Urwa al-wuthqa, the journal of the Jamal al-Din al-Afghani and Muhammad Abduh. In 1897 he left Syria for Cairo to collaborate with Abduh and the following year they launched al-Manar, a weekly and then monthly journal comprising Quranic commentary at which Rida worked until his death in 1935. Rida’s desire to reform religious practices of his time found expression when he joined the Naqshbandiyyah sufi order and decided to study with the pan- Islamist thinker Jamal ud-Din al-Afghani. Upon al-Afghani’s death, Rida went to Cairo to study with the al-Afghani’s most eminent student, Muhammad `Abduh. `Abduh’s father was the headman of a village in the Egyptian delta, and had sent his son to study at al-Azhar in 1896 (Read “THE MOORISH AMERICAN PROPHET NOBLE DREW ALI” by Professor Ravanna Bey).
Aziz Ali al-Masri Bey

Aziz Ali al-Masri Bey (1879-1965), was the co-founder of Al-gahtaniyya and al-‘ahd (The Covenant). Egyptian officer and Arab nationalist politician. Born in Cairo, of mixed Arab and Circassian parentage, Aziz Ali al-Masri Bey was trained at the Istanbul Military Academy and was commissioned as an Ottoman army officer in 1901. He joined the Committee for Union and Progress (CUP) (Young Turks), but after the Young Turks seized power in 1908, he turned against the organization and became an Arab nationalist. It is often alleged that Masri’s change of heart occurred because of a personal quarrel that erupted between him and CUP leader Enver while both were serving in the Ottoman army during the Libyan war. Misri formed secret Arab societies called al-Qahtaniyya in 1909 and al-AHD (Covenant) in 1913. He was arrested by the Ottoman government, tried for treason, and condemned to death, but the Turks let him go to Egypt instead. When the Arab Revolt broke out in 1916, he served briefly as Sharif Husayn’s chief of staff. After World War I, he joined several Egyptian fringe groups committed to Arab nationalism. He directed the Cairo Police Academy from 1927 to 1936 and was inspector general of the Egyptian army in 1938. In 1939, Premier Ali Mahir named him chief of staff, but he was dismissed from that post in 1940 at Britain’s insistence. He deserted the Egyptian army and tried to reach the Axis forces in the Libyan desert but was caught and court-martialed in 1941. After Aziz Ali had helped the Free Officers prepare for the revolution of 1952, they named him ambassador to Moscow in 1953 and considered making him president in place of Muhammad Naguib, but he retired in 1954. Fiercely nationalistic, Aziz Ali al Masri Bey was hampered in his career by his political idealism, which got the better of his discretion (Read “THE MOORISH AMERICAN PROPHET NOBLE DREW ALI” by Professor Ravanna Bey).

Jamal al-Afghani taught the family of Prophet Noble Drew Ali.

siahoThe family of Timothy Drew were members of the “Moorish Zionist Temple” in Brooklyn, New York, which was formed in 1889 (some books date its formation in 1899), by Rabbi Leon Richelieu. The Congregation of the Moorish Zionist Temple of the Moorish Jews in Harlem c.1929, Rabbi Israel Ben Newman wearing shawl, President Mordecai Herman on his right. Rabbi Mordecai Herman was member of Marcus Garvey’s Universal Negro Improvement Association (UNIA). In 1921 Mordecai Herman reformed the Moorish Zionist Temple (aka Cushim congregation) in Harlem NY with affiliate branches in Newark, New Jersey and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Rabbi Arnold Josiah Ford later joined Rabbi Samuel Valentine and Rabbi Mordecai Herman. Rabbi Ford and Rabbi Samuel Valentine split in 1924. Rabbi Ford started the Beth Bnai Abraham. Ford included elements of Islam in his practice, writing prayers to Allah and observing Ramadan. His movement was Moorish-Israelite-Islamic-Free Masonic in nature.

Rabbi Arnold Josiah Ford

Rabbi Arnold Josiah Ford (23 Apr. 1877-16 Sept. 1935), black nationalist, who became the musical director of the Universal Negro Improvement Association (UNIA) in 1917. He was a member in the Scottish Rite Masons, where he served as Master of the Memmon Lodge. Ford and Benjamin E. Burrell composed a song called “Ethiopia,” which speaks of a halcyon past before slavery and stresses pride in African heritage—two themes that were becoming immensely popular. Ford was thus prominently situated among those Muslim and Christian clergy, including George Alexander McGuire, Chaplain-General of the UNIA, who were each trying to influence the religious direction of the organization. Ford and E.L. Gaines wrote the handbook of rules and regulation for the paramilitary African Legion (which was modeled after the Zionist Jewish Legion) and developed guidelines for the Black Cross Nurses. He served on committees, spoke at rallies, and was elected one of the delegates representing the 35,000 members of the New York chapter at the First International Convention of Negro Peoples of the World, held in 1920 at Madison Square Garden. Rabbi Ford was expelled from the UNIA aka Garvey Movement as he was head of the music and the band marchers. He was removed in 1923 due to mismanagement of choirs payroll. It is possible that Drew Ali had in fact borrowed elements of his African genealogical narrative from Ford’s. As it is alleged that Rabbi Ford’s back to Ethiopia movement is what Prophet Noble Drew Ali referenced in the Moorish Questionnaire Key 89 and also in the Moorish Divine Constitution and By Laws Act 6 and in the Moorish Holy Koran Circle Seven Ch. 47:1-4. Rabbi Ford is also quoted in the Moorish Literature pamphlet in the speech “Industrious Acts of the Moslems (some say it is him, while others say it is David Ford-El)?” Other evidence suggesting that Drew Ali was influenced by the Moorish Hebrews was the importance he gave to Marcus Garvey—a feature notable among Ford’s group—and the introduction of the word “El” (along with “Bey”) as a suffix to Moors’ surnames, which is consistent with the Hebrew (Israelite) —and not the Islamic—tradition (Note: Prophet Noble Drew Ali’s family were members of the Moorish Zionist Temple and Prophet Noble Drew Ali did know Rabbi Arnold Ford who was a leader of the Moorish Zionist Temple and was the teacher of Rabbi Chief Rabbi Wentworth Arthur Matthew. Ford taught both Ahmaric, Hebrew and Arabic in his Beth B’nai Abraham congregation).

Chief Rabbi Wentworth Arthur Matthew

Chief Rabbi Wentworth Arthur Matthew (1892-1973) Yoseh ben Moshe ben Yehuda, also given as Moshea Ben David was leader of the Moorish Zionist Temple of the Moorish Jews of Harlem. Matthew created a Masonic lodge called The Royal Order of Ethiopian Hebrews the Sons and Daughters of Culture. The lodge functioned as a secret society where the initiated explored a branch of Jewish mysticism called “Kabballah.” Matthew was also a member of the UNIA under Marcus A. ‘Mosiah’ Garvey.

Dr. Suleiman Mohammed

Dr. Suleiman Mohammed (Dr. Prince de Solomon, Abdul Hamid Suleiman) – allegedly, he was an “Egyptian” (recognizing that, at the time, Sudan was officially part of Egypt); he was an Arabic speaker (i.e., an Arab, or an“Arabian,” as the 1922 newspaper article described Suleiman); he worked as a“minister” (i.e., a promoter of religion); and he had immigrated at some point before his October 1909 appearance, possibly in 1908. Yet, there has been founded a 1906 reference to a black Baptist named “Rev. Dr. P. D. Solomon from 1906,” but whether this is the same figure as Prince de Solomon is unknown (See“COLORED BAPTISTS,” The Sun [Baltimore], June 10, 1906). The name of Suleiman’s movement was the “Canaanite Temple”. Timothy Drew (Professor Drew, later known as Prophet Noble Drew Ali) was a co-founder. Timothy Drew (Professor Drew) meet him in Egypt and persuaded him to come to America. (To the left pic). In one front-page article, this man of African (Afrakan / Afurakan) descent was depicted wearing a fez and it was reported that he had been proclaiming his movement to be both Islamic and Masonic — a “Mohammedan Masonry” — and spoke of his mystical and Egyptian connections. According to Martin Bernal “Masons ‘saw their religion as Egyptian, their signs as hieroglyphs, their lodges as Egyptian temples, and themselves as an Egyptian priesthood'” – “OTHELLO’S CHILDREN IN THE ‘NEW WORLD'” by Jose V. Pimeienta-Bey, Ph.D). Dr. Suleiman communicated to the group’s head, Caesar R. Blake, Jr., his demand for the African-American Shriner community, known as the Ancient Egyptian Arabic Order Nobles of the Mystic Shrine [AEAONMS] to come under the protection of what he called the “Mecca Medina Temple of Ancient Free and Operative Masons from 1 to 96 degrees,” the “true Shrine.”

“In August 1922 after he attended the African-American Masonic convention held that month in Washington, D.C. At the convention, he formally presented himself to the leadership of the main faction of the African-American Shriner community, known as the Ancient Egyptian Arabic Order Nobles of the Mystic Shrine (AEAONMS). There, Suleiman communicated to the group’s head, Caesar R. Blake, Jr., his demand for the AEAONMS to come under the protection of what he called the “Mecca Medina temple of Ancient Free and Operative Masons from 1 to 96 degrees,” the “true Shrine,” which, in a later interview, Suleiman claimed to have incorporated himself in New York City, though he gave no date for its “JOURNAL OF RACE, ETHNICITY, AND RELIGION” Volume 2, Issue 13 (September 2011). Because of conflicting reports, it is unclear as to whether Blake was present in Washington, though it is almost certain that he was not. incorporation. The news report, which contained a picture of the man, who clearly looked to be of African descent, indicated that he was an “Arabian.” By the end of the month, Suleiman had written a letter to The New York World newspaper providing more information about his background: “I, Abdul Hamid Suleiman, of the City of Khartoum, Sudan, Egypt, a Mohammedan by birth, Master of the Koran, having pilgrimaged to Mecca three times and thus become an Eminent High Priest and head of all Masonic degrees in Mecca, Arabia, from the first to the ninety-sixth degree, am now in the United States for the purpose of establishing the rite of the Ancient Arabic Order of the Nobles of the Mystic Shrine. I am here to answer all questions relative to these degrees until I return home to Mecca to enroll the names of the true Shriners of this country.” Patrick D. Bowen examined new evidence concerning a “Canaanites Temple” that was active in Newark in 1923 and which may have influenced the Moorish Science Temple. (“ABDUL HAMID SULEIMAN AND THE ORIGINS OF THE MOORISH SCIENCE TEMPLE” by Patrick D. Bowen).

Suleiman told the reporter that he was aware of the so-called white Shriners’ attempts to sue the AEAONMS in order to prevent them from having their own separate Shriner organization; and Suleiman was “arranging to receive” the Negro Masons and Shriners into his “Islamic Masonry.” He insisted that the so-called Negro Shriners did not have an authentic Masonic charter, but he would “now…make them authentic by virtue of his authority as Eminent High Priest to grant a charter in a Masonry which he declares to be ancient and widespread throughout the Islamic world.” Suleiman said that American Negroes would be allowed into his group on two conditions: that they vow, “‘by the beard of Prophet Muhammad,’ that they will live according to the moral code of the Koran,” — “becoming… Muslim (Mohammedans),” as one newspaper described it —and “that they will pay to Mecca, through none but Suleiman, a proportion of their lodge dues.” Suleiman presented his credential as High Priest, and his Masonic authority “signed by Hassan Hissein, Grand Sherif of Mecca,” The reporter described this patent :It was a nice sheet of white paper about two feet by three, with a field of blue sky, down the centre of which ran a wide column of sprawling characters bearing a ragged resemblance of the Arabic lettering in the Koran. The borders were decorated with three camels on one side and three pyramids on the other and various symbolic stones, incense pots, beehives, square and compasses. At the top was the English lettering, “MECCA ARABIA,” and below it, “A.F. & O.M.” [which was explained as standing for] “Ancient,Free and Operative Masonry.” As for Islamic Masonry, Suleiman informed the reporter that it pervades the whole Mohammedan world and controls both religious worship and civil government—that the titles of sheriff, sheik, pasha, khedive, marabout, sahib are nothing but the topmost of the Masonic degrees, in this order given, with the sheriff as the highest.… [Furthermore] these titles will be open to American Negroes who join… Blake, for his part, did not deny the existence of Islamic Masonry, but insisted, just as the founder of the so-called Negro Shriner movement, John G. Jones, had before him, that so-called Negro Shriners were not Muslims and would not be willing to convert—“American Negroes are Christians.

In a later interview, Suleiman claimed to have incorporated a Mecca-Medina Temple in New York City and New Jersey. On February 4, 1910, it was reported that an African-American Masonic lodge by the exact name referred to by Suleiman had been incorporated in New York City “with the approval of Supreme Court Justice Gerard.” Between 1910-1913 Timothy Drew (Prophet Noble Drew Ali) became a member of his Mecca-Medina Temple. According to author and researcher Patrick Bowen, a newspaper article from 1922 confirms Suleiman met with Duse Mohammed Ali and other leading Garveyites. Dr. Suleiman Mohammed in 1922 reiterated assertions about the true Shriner system only being the one out of Mecca, and its requirement of converting to Islam. Suleiman even went as far as publishing a letter from the Grand Lodge in England to prove that all Prince Hall masonry was illegitimate. Dr. Suleiman Mohammad declared, “There Are No True Shriners Among Either Colored or White Americans,” “NEW YORK AGE”, September 16, 1927. By the end of the month, Suleiman had written a letter to “THE NEW YORK WORLD” newspaper providing more information about his background: I, Abdul Hamid Suleiman, of the City of Khartoum, Sudan, Egypt, a Mohammedan by birth, Master of the Koran, having pilgrimaged to Mecca three times and thus become an Eminent High Priest and head of all Masonic degrees in Mecca, Arabia, from the first to the ninety-sixth degree, am now in the United States for the purpose of establishing the rite of the Ancient Arabic Order of the Nobles of the Mystic Shrine. It was later relayed that he had been leading a number of New York City Muslims in attempting to “win Negroes to their Mohammedan faith by stressing the fact of the absolute equality of races and genuine brotherhood under Mohammedanism, as in opposition to the well-known attitude of white Christians” (JOURNAL OF RACE, ETHNICITY, AND RELIGION” Volume 2, Issue 13). We hear of Suleiman’s Masonic ties is in early 1928 when it was reported that he had once “won notoriety as the founder of the Oriental Branch of the Masonic Order.” In the following year, “Prince Abdul Hamid Sulyman of Khartoum, Egypt, priest of Mecca”—note the use of the title “Prince”—appeared as a speaker at the second annual banquet of the “Grand Orient of Ancient, Free and Accepted Scottish Rite Masons of Union Faith.” This order was said to have been founded in 1923 by a J.B. Thornton, and in 1929 claimed to have 800 members in New York and 15,000 nationally. It is notable, however, that one of the past masters of the latter order (the “Grand Orient of Ancient…”) who was making a speech at the banquet was “Rabbi A. J. Ford,” presumably Arnold J. Ford. Also, author of “ABDUL HAMID SULEIMAN AND THE ORIGINS OF THE MOORISH SCIENCE TEMPLE” and researcher Patrick D. Bowen has in his possession the incorporation form for the “The Grand United Masonic Orient Inc.,” which lists Arnold J. Ford. In the early 1920s, Ford had in fact led two different Black Hebrew movements which incorporated Islamic themes and practices, the Moorish Zionist Temple and Beth B’nai Abraham (“Scottish Rite Masons Give Annual Banquet,” “NEW YORK AMSTERDAM NEWS”, February 27, 1929).

Muhammad Ibn ‘Abd al-Karim al-Khattabi (Emir Abdul Karim El)

Emir Abdul Karim El, (Abd el-Krim (1882 – February 6, 1963) was a Moroccan Riffian political and military leader. He was a Moroccan Sheik who fought against the Spanish and French in 1921-23. He helped establish the “very first temple” for Moors; the Canaanite Temple…along with…Doctor Solomon Mohammed (Sulaiman Mohammed), its co-founder.” From there he received certain books, lessons, and knowledge to think on greater things; and the Canaanite Temple was born from this union. It is said that Karim El “anointed” Timothy Drew {Prophet Noble Drew Ali}. It was obviously symbolic to Drew taken his place when El went back to Africa.

Father George William Hurley

Father George William Hurley, Prophet and Founder Universal Hagar’s Spiritual Church (February 17, 1884 – June 23, 1943). He was raised as a Baptist by his mother, Tina Hurley. At the age of seven he began to preach and challenge the traditional Baptist doctrine. He was ordained at the age of 11. After high school he went to Tuskegee Institute and Phelps Bible Hall Training School to receive ministerial training from Dr. E. J. Penny. In 1918-19 Reverend Hurley met Father Elias D. Smith, founder of the Triumph the Church and Kingdom of God in Christ (Note: The same church that raised Rev. James F. Jones, also known as, Prophet Jones. In 1938 The Triumph sect sent the 21-year-old Jones to Detroit as a missionary Jones soon broke away and founded the Church of Universal Triumph, the Dominion of God Inc.). Hurley was moved by Father Smith and his teachings and consequently joined. After several years, he reached the level of Elder and the presiding Prince of Michigan, but became dissatisfied with the teachings of the Triumph Church. After this he briefly joined the International Spiritual Church, but again he was not completely content. Soon after he became involved with the Moorish National Divine Movement / Moorish Holy Temple of Science under Prophet Noble Drew Ali. However, by 1923, he founded the Universal Hagar’s Spiritual Church Association. He founded Temple #1 or the “Supreme Temple” in Detroit, Michigan. After two moves Temple #1 found a permanent home on Napoleon Street. It is this stability that led to the opening of the School of Mediumship and Psychology in 1924. One of the major influences from Prophet Noble Drew Ali’s movement was that Father Hurley’s used of the “AQUARIAN GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST” written by Levi and Eva Dowling of 1908. In 1933, Father Hurley, influenced by the“AQUARIAN GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST” began to espouse that he indeed was the “God of the Aquarian Age.” By 1938, the U.H.S.C.A had grown from one to 30 temples piercing the boundaries of New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Ohio, New York, and Illinois etc. Also, during this period of growth, structural organization can be seen in the establishment of various auxiliaries. For instance, the Knights of the All Seeing Eye (K. of the A.S.E. in 1934 with Prince Thomas Surbadger) as extensions to the church. The Knights of the All Seeing Eye represents a co-ed secret auxiliary, which is structurally divided into national chapters with the two highest offices being that of the Most Royal Exalted Master and the Royal Noble Mistress. Although secrecy encompasses this auxiliary, the members make public their overarching mission, which involves racial uplift. Another prominent auxiliary is the Wiseman Board — the even member executive branch of this ecclesiastical body. Hurley was taught Arabic by Elias Mohammed Abraham, a missionary associated with the Islamic Mission of America led by Trinadad born – Moroccan descent El Hajj Sheikh Daoud Ahmad Faisal. Hurley’s descendants maintain that he knew Elijah Muhammad when he was still known as Elijah Pool(e) and also knew many of the other black urban sect leaders, people such as, Prophet Jones of Detroit, Sweet Daddy Grace, and Father Divine of Harlem. Hurley’s statement that “a true Moslem is a true Spiritualist.” In 2012, the U.H.S.C.A. boasted over 35 temples and missions in 14 states—Michigan, Ohio, Illinois, Indiana, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, Wisconsin, Maryland, Virginia, South Carolina, Georgia, and Alabama – and was headquartered at 555 South Oakwood Blvd., Detroit, Michigan 48217.

George Baker

George Baker was known as “Father Divine” (c. 1876 – September 10, 1965). In 1906 sojourn in California, Father Divine became acquainted with the ideas of Charles Fillmore and the New Thought Movement, a philosophy of positive thinking that would inform his later doctrines. Among other things, this belief system asserted that negative thoughts led to poverty
and unhappiness. Father Divine attended a local Baptist Church, often
preaching, until 1907. He became known as “the Messenger” during this time. Father Divine was joined by Samuel Morris called Father Jehovia and both were later joined by John A. Hickerson, who called himself Reverend Bishop Saint John the Vine. In 1912, the three-man ministry collapsed, as John the Vine denied Father Jehovia’s monopoly on godhood, citing 1 John 4:15 to mean God was in everyone: “Whoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwells in him and he in God.” Father Divine denied both that Father Jehovia was God and that anyone could be God. Instead, he declared that he himself was the only true expression of God’s spirit. In 1914, George Baker (Father Divine) traveled to Brooklyn, New York, with a very modest number of followers and an all-black congregation. He founded the International Peace Mission movement, formulated its doctrine, and oversaw its growth from a small and predominantly black congregation into a multiracial and international church. While, John A. Hickerson, who called himself Reverend Bishop Saint John the Vine headed to Harlem, New York where he joined the UNIA under Marcus A. ‘Mosiah’ Garvey and also became affiliated with the Moorish Zionist Temple. He soon corrected his name to Rabbi Eshof ben Dovid. He passed on esoteric teachings through the Garvey movement. It is even claimed that Rabbi Eshof ben Dovid taught Hebrew to Rabbi Ford, who taught it to Rabbi Matthews. Even so, by 1919, George Baker had adopted the name Reverend Major Jealous Divine. “Reverend Major” was chosen as a title of respect and authority, while “Jealous” was a reference to Exodus 34:14, where the Lord says he is a “jealous god”. His followers affectionately called him Father Divine. While in New York George Baker (Father Divine) between the years 1914-1916, he became very familiar with the Canaanite Temple teachings of Prophet Noble Drew Ali. In early 1932 Father Divine did a brief prison stay and after his attorneys secured release through an appeal on June 25, 1932, he declared that the foundational documents of the United States of America, such as the Constitution and Declaration of Independence, were inspired. Father Divine also taught that contemporary leaders strayed from these ideals, but he would become increasingly patriotic through his life. As a leader, Divine created a patriarchal and messianic image that transcended his theological and intellectual limitations by denying the pervasiveness of color and race, as well as the dominance of white society and the marginal nature of Black society. He went on to state that everyone could be a part of the American society. However, this could only be actualized in a government under God, and Father Divine was God. Father Divine was conceptually contradictory. On the one hand, he was attracted to white America, and he even married white American women; on the other hand, he accentuated and actualized Mr. Garvey’s position which stated Black people were superior and whites were inferior. Father Divine made numerous contributions toward his followers’ economic independence and racial equality.

Marcelino Manuel da Graça

Marcelino Manuel da Graça (January 25, 1884 – January 12, 1960), better known as Charles Manuel “Sweet Daddy” Grace, or Daddy Grace. Sweet Daddy Grace, was born in Cape Verde Islands, Portugal off the coast of West Africa. He came to America in 1903, and settled in New Bedford, Massachusetts. He was influenced by Pentecostal and Evangelic ministers. But sometime between 1914-1916, he became affiliated with the Canaanite Temple. In 1919, he built the first United House of Prayer For All People by hand in West Wareham, Massachusetts. Sometime after a trip to Egypt, Grace received another calling to move to the Brooklyn community of Charlotte, North Carolina and found the United House Of Prayer For All People in 1925. Sweet Daddy Grace moved his headquarters to Washington, DC, he returned to Charlotte one week each September. Parades celebrating his visit became well known for their large attendance and pageantry. “Sweet Daddy Grace,” was an effective evangelist who preached revival in a Pentecostal tradition that included brass “shout bands” and public baptisms. The United House of Prayer for All People prided itself on an ecstatic worship style that included speaking in tongues. He was said to have owned one of the largest fleets of Cadillac’s, had his own line of soaps and healing medicines, performed miracles, baptisms. Grace developed a line of products including “Daddy Grace” coffee, tea, soaps, and hand creams reputed to have healing properties. Members of his church were expected to attend service every day. At church, the congregation would take an hour “coming to the mountain” by singing, clapping, speaking in tongues, and feeling the spirit. There were also many claims the Sweet Daddy Grace healed people and changed lives for the better. His followers believed he was capable of performing miracles such as bringing the dead back to life as well as healing. He taught from the Bible and accentuated his doctrine on the Biblical “grace.” He told his followers that he was the “Grace of the World” and only he had the divine power to wash away their sins. He did not advocate an African or nationalist philosophy of any kind; nor did he preach any kind of race pride. With such frequent attendance, fervent followers and reports of good works, the church collected far more than average weekly offerings, enabling Sweet Daddy Grace to expand his church empire around the country and several places abroad. Sweet Daddy Grace and his church’s from a materialistic standpoint, work should note their extensive track record, providing shelter, food, clothing, employment and elevating the status of the poor. In 1960, he died in his Los Angeles mansion and the body of Bishop Charles Emmanuel Grace was returned to Charlotte for a final parade around his original church before burial in Massachusetts. Fitting the bravado of his life, the eulogy was delivered by … Sweet Daddy Grace on tape. Based on the good he did and other principles he taught, the legacy of Sweet Daddy Grace endures with over 3.5 million followers in the United House of Prayer for All People.

Bishop Rev. S. C. Blackledge

Bishop Rev. S. C. Blackledge D. D. author of “AN OPEN
BOOK ON HIDDEN MYSTERIES” (Copyright 1925 A. D.) was a good friend of Prophet Noble Drew Ali.

Hadhrat Dr. Maulana Mufti Muhammad Sadiq

Hadhrat Dr. Maulana Mufti Muhammad Sadiq, who came from India, was the first (modern recorded) Ahmadiyya Muslim Missionary to America. Dr. Mufti Muhammad Sadiq, arrived in Philadelphia on February 15, 1920, the United States Immigration authorities refused to allow Dr. Sadiq to enter the country (Note: It has been reported Dr. Sadiq actually arrived in 1910, during which time Timothy Drew [later Prophet Noble Drew Ali] and David Ford [W. D. Fard Muhammad] became members of the Islamic sect. They spend the next two years with the Ahmadiyya). After the authorities interrogated him for several hours and established that Dr. Sadiq was a representative of a religious group that practiced polygyny, they asked him to leave the United States. Dr. Sadiq refused to go and asked for an appeal to the Secretariat in Washington D.C. He was incarcerated in the Philadelphia Detention House until the decision of the appeal was handed down. Later, he moved to Chicago and in 1921 established the first headquarters of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, at 4448 Wabash Avenue, giving it the name “Al Masjid.” Muhammad Sadiq, in 1921, sent 500 letters to various U.S. Masonic lodges. His purpose, as a representative of the Ahmadiyya Movement in Islam, was to convert Americans to the religion of Islam. Ahmadiyya Muslim Community is the only Islamic organization to believe that the long-waited Messiah has come in the person of Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad (1835-1908) of Qadian. Ahmad claimed to be the metaphorical second coming of Jesus of Nazareth and the divine guide, whose advent was foretold by the Prophet of Islam, Muhammad. Ahmadiyya Muslim Community believes that God sent Ahmad, like Jesus, to end religious wars, condemn bloodshed and reinstitute morality, justice and peace. Ahmad’s advent has brought about an unprecedented era of Islamic revival. He divested Islam of fanatical beliefs and practices by vigorously championing Islam’s true and essential teachings. He also recognized the noble teachings of the great religious founders and saints, including, Zoroaster, Abraham, Moses, Jesus, Krishna, Buddha, Confucius, Lao Tzu and Guru Nanak, and explained how such teachings converged into the one true Islam. Because of its teaching and practice of universal brotherhood, the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community attracted many said black Americans, who assumed leadership roles within the Movement. Black Americans were told that Islam was the religion of their fore-parents before slavery. Apparently, through their connection with the UNIA’s internationalist perspective, the Ahmadi Muslims had acquired a keen understanding of the ordinary black man that enabled them to connect Islam with Pan-Africanism and race pride. The adoption of Muslim names by all new converts was further commitment to the Islamic world view as was the wearing of veils by some of the female converts.

During this period, Dr. Mufti Muhammad Sadiq became friends with Jamaican born Marcus Garvey, the founder of the Universal Negro Improvement Association, (UNIA). In 1923, Dr. Sadiq gave five lectures at the UNIA meetings in Detroit. Eventually, he converted forty Garveyites to the Ahmadiyya Muslim faith. The most noteworthy of these converts was a former Christian minister, Reverend Sutton, who was named Sheik Abdus Salaam and was appointed the leader of the Detroit branch of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community. A number of Islamic oriented organizations sprang up among said black Americans in the 1920’s and 30’s, apparently influenced by both Dr. Sadiq’s teachings and by the philosophy of the UNIA. Prophet / Master Fard Muhammad (David Ford-El, Wali(d) Farad Muhammad) and The Honorable Elijah Muhammad, (Robert Pool, Robert Poole, Paul Robert ‘Elijah’ Poole-Bey, Robert Karriem, Ghulam Bogan) leaders of the most successful of these American Islamic organizations, the Lost-Found Nation of Islam, is stated that Robert Pool (Robert Poole) was a corporal in the uniformed ranks of the UNIA. Wali(d) Farad Muhammad was David Ford-El’s name used as a member of the Ahmadiyya group. Also Robert Pool(e)’s (Elijah Muhammad’s) name as a member of the Ahmadiyya Muslim group was “Ghulam Bogan.” Mizra Ghulam was the name of the founder of the Ahmadiyya Muslims. According to “A CONCISE HISTORY OF THE NATION OF ISLAM AND ITS EVOLUTION” Published on Friday, 09 July 2010 08:21, written by Imam Benjamin Bilal, it states, “Mr. Fard was a member of the Ahmadiyya Anjuman community of Muslims that were popular throughout the African American communities of cities like Detroit, Chicago, and Newark at that time.” During his time in the United States, Dr. Sadiq had made many devoted friends. The Muslims in Chicago were so attached to Dr. Sadiq that they sent a letter to the international head of the Ahmadiyya Movement, requesting that he be allowed to stay in the United States indefinitely. However, at the end of September 1923, Dr. Sadiq left the United States and stayed in Paris, France for several weeks, where he lectured and secured converts there. Then he returned to India. When Dr. Sadiq began his missionary work in the United States, most Americans had never heard of Islam or the name “Muslim,” and had never seen a mosque. Today, Islam is the fastest growing religion in the United States, with millions of converts to various sects. The Ahmadiyya Movement in Islam is continuing its missionary efforts across the United States and around the world. It has established missions in 170 countries. It has communities in fifty-three U.S. cities, where new mosque and mission houses are established. Dr. Sadiq’s work has grown from one small seed of faith into a tree whose branches are spreading from coast to coast.

Paul Nathaniel Johnson (Sheikh Ahmad Din, Ra Rasool, Prophet of Amun Ra)

he Honorable Paul Nathaniel Johnson, The Fahamme Prophet of Amun-Ra and Master-Mystic was born June 10, 1888 in Hempstead County, Arkansas. He is of African-Arab (Moorish) ancestry. He attended and graduated from Philander-Smith College in Little Rock, Arkansas. First, during the early 1920s Paul Nathaniel Johnson (Ahmad Din)—was given the title of “Sheikh,” indicating special religious authority—appear to have been Masons, or at least from a related group, themselves. Soon after he met Dr. Mufti Muhammad Sadiq of Qadian, Punjab, India. Dr. Mufti was the first Moslem missionary sent to America, representing the Hazrat Mirza Bashir-ud-Din Mahmud Ahmad, head of the Ahmadiyya Movement in Islam, which was founded by Mirza Ghulam Ahmad, the “alleged” World-Promised Messiah of the prior age. During subsequent meetings with Dr. Mufti he engaged in discussions of some of the philosophical conclusions being offered about Islam. Dr. Mufti inquired as to how the Honorable Paul N. Johnson understood and knew the things he knew and Paul’s response was I don’t know how, I just know. At this point he was offered a job teaching Islam and recruiting for the Ahmadiyya Movement in Islam. Given the name Ahmad Din by the Ahmadiyya Movement, the Honorable Paul N. Johnson became the first ordained Moslem Minister in Saint Louis and Missouri. His title was Sheikh, which indicates special religious authority.

He also appeared to have been a Mason, or at least from a related group, such as, the “Mecca Medina Temple of Ancient Free and Operative Masons from 1 to 96 degrees,” the “true Shrine” under Dr. Suleiman Mohammed. Hence, he too were a member of the Canaanite Temple until 1919, the alleged year that Professor Drew (later Prophet Noble Drew Ali) left Newark, New Jersey to move to Chicago, Illinois. Sheikh Ahmad Din (Honorable Paul Johnson), in one of the Ahmadiyya magazines from that time, there is a picture of him wearing a fez, the headpiece of the Shriners. While the fez may in fact be reflecting the North African heritage that Johnson claimed, it is note worthy that in Johnson’s own break-off group, called the Fahamme Temples of Islam and Culture, the fez was a common headpiece for male members (and one member wore what was clearly a Shriner fez) and the teachings explicitly stated: “We are the true SHRINERS.” He is the revealer and author of “THE HOLY FAHAMME GOSPEL,” the Holy revealed bible for the Ethiopian race, and several other booklets, poems, songs, and essays. The following questions and answers reflects a Moorish / Masonic (Shriner) overtone (connection).

Q. What is Fahamme? A. It is understanding, and it is also the name of the new Afro-American culture founded on the background of our Ancestor—Worship with due reverence for our Noble Ancestors, Ancient and Divine, whose wisdom graced the lands of Egypt, Ethiopia, Kaldea, Arabia, Canaan, and the entire torrid zone. The torrid belt of the mystic name of Ethiopia.

Q. Who were the first Muslims? A. The Ancient Ethiopians, the Hamites and Canaanites all from ancient Africa, which was originally call HAM. Ancient Hamites from what is known as Ethiopia and Egypt long before Arab occupation.

Above Pic: Grand Governor (Grand Sheik) Isaac Cook -Bey. The Illinois newspaper article to the left illustrates that “Isaac” Bro. I Cook-Bey was called “Grand Governor of the Fahamme Temple… possibly an error on part of the newspaper writer? Because, according to M.S.T.A. records, Bro. I. Cook Bey was Grand Sheik of M.S.T.A. Temple No. 19, in Baltimore, Maryland, at 456 Albert Street. However, also according to M.S.T.A. records, on September 26th, 1930, Supreme Grand Sheik Edward Mealy-El sent Charles Kirkman-Bey an official Temple letter and to other Temples, that the credentials of those listed were REVOKED; I. Cook-Bey name was listed. Based on the article Mrs. Edna Bey married Robert Bey on October 18, 1932. Therefore, we do know that this was two years after the revoking of I. Cook-Bey from the M.S.T.A. enrollment under Supreme Grand Sheik Edward Mealy-El. Therefore, Bro. I. Cook-Bey could have possibly been a Fahamme Temple member … Note: It was definitely sure that Mrs. Edna-Bey was a member of the Fahamme Temple ‘and’ the Moorish Science Temple No. 57. Nevertheless, the article demonstrates that the Fahamme Temple and the Moorish Science Temple were close. (see Bro. Al Mohadiz El Hajj)

Satti Majid

Satti Majid was a Sudanese Muslim missionary who lived in the U.S. from the early 1900s to 1929. During that time, he helped establish several Islamic organizations in the country. He is best known today for his work with said African Americans, a number of whom converted to Sunni Islam under his influence. Patrick D. Bowen published an article on Satti Majid in the “JOURNAL OF AFRICANA RELIGIONS”, examining new evidence about Satti Majid’s efforts organizing Muslims in Buffalo, proselytization efforts with African Americans, and his attempt to establish perhaps the first national Islamic umbrella organizations in the country. The article also discusses new evidence concerning the early life Sheik Daoud Ahmed Faisal, who became Satti Majid’s representative in Harlem and later continued his legacy in Brooklyn.

El Hajj Sheikh Daoud Ahmad Faisal

El Hajj Sheikh Daoud Ahmad Faisal (1891 – 1980) of Caribbean (Trinadad) and Moroccan background, he founded the Islamic Propagation Center of America, at 143 State Street, Brooklyn, New York in 1928. He also started the Islamic Mission Society, which was active from 1934-1942. Sheikh Faisal was granted a charter by Sheikh Khalid of Jordan and King Saud of Saudi Arabia to propagate. He could be found plying his trades among such contemporaries such as Noble Drew Ali and Fard Muhammad, as well as, among his West Indian counterpart Marcus Garvey. Although deeply entrenched in The Harlem Renaissance he cannot be thought of solely as a ‘race man’ – Sheikh Daoud was by no means limited to any one sphere of social or racial activity. He was a true international man – universal might be a better word to describe him. He spoke favorable of Noble Drew Ali and his efforts to reunite said Negroes with their Moroccan past.

​Major Martin Robison Delany

Martin Robison Delany (May 6, 1812 – January 24, 1885) was an abolitionist, journalist, physician, and writer, arguably the first proponent of African Nationalism (see Paul Cufee – 1759-1817) and is called the “Father of Black Nationalism” (Pan-Africanism). Of course, Delany never referred to himself as a “Black Nationalist,” however, he has been ‘philosophically’ labeled as such. He was born in Charles Town, Jefferson County (present-day West Virginia) to a free mother and slave father, Pati and Samuel Delaney. Delan(e)y’s paternal grandparents were of Gola ethnicity (from modern-day Liberia), taken captive during warfare and brought as slaves to the Virginia colony. Family oral history said that the grandfather was a chieftain, escaped to Canada for a period, and died resisting slavery abuses. Pati’s parents were born in the Niger Valley, West Africa, and were of Mandinka (Mandingo) ethnicity. Her father was a Prince named Shango, captured with his betrothed Graci and brought to America as slaves (P.O.W.s). After some time, they were given their freedom in Virginia, perhaps based on their noble birth. Shango returned to Africa. Graci stayed in America with their only daughter Pati. Pati, taught him and his siblings to read and write using “THE NEW YORK PRIMER AND SPELLING BOOK,” given to them by a traveling peddler named Rankin. They were cited for violating state laws against literacy instruction for black children. So, in 1822, Pati moved the family to Chambersburg, Pennsylvania, after it was discovered the Delany children were being taught to read. In 1831, Martin Delany moved to Pittsburgh to continue his education at a school for (so-called) Negroes. Delany became a student of Rev. Lewis Woodson of the Bethel African Methodist Episcopal Church. Rev. Woodson, who would go on to help establish Wilberforce University, was a strong advocate of black economic independence and was active in the Underground Railroad, which helped slaves escape to freedom in Canada. Delany was soon involved in the Underground Railroad himself. Shortly after, Delany began attending Jefferson College, where he was taught classics, Latin and Greek by Molliston M. Clark. During the national cholera epidemic in 1833, Delany became apprenticed to Dr. Andrew N. McDowell, where he learned contemporary techniques of fire cupping and leeching, then considered the primary techniques to treat disease. He continued to study medicine under the mentorship of Dr. McDowell and other abolitionist doctors, such as Dr. F. Julius LeMoyne and Dr. Joseph P. Gazzam of Pittsburgh. He was one of the first three so-called Negroes admitted to Harvard Medical School. In 1835 he attended his first National Negro Convention, held in Philadelphia since 1831. He was inspired to conceive a plan, which became the “Back to Africa” movement, specially to set up settlement(s) on the east coast of Africa (Afraka) and later the west coast of Africa (Afraka).

Delany began publication of an abolitionist newspaper called “THE MYSTERY” in Pittsburgh in 1843. While Frederick Douglass and William Lloyd Garrison were in Pittsburgh in 1847 on an anti-slavery tour, they met with Delany. Together the men conceived the newspaper that became the “NORTH STAR.” It was first published later that year in Rochester, New York and published until June 1851. Delany began writing and published “THE CONDITION, ELEVATION, EMIGRATION AND DESTINY OF THE COLORED PEOPLE OF THE UNITED STATES, POLITICALLY CONSIDERED IN 1852.” This book supported the emigration of (so-called) Colored outside the United States. He became convinced that the so-called white ruling class would not allow deserving persons of color to become leaders in society. He suggested they should leave and found a new nation elsewhere, perhaps in the West Indies or South America. Delany also authored a novel in response to Harriet Beecher Stowe’s “UNCLE TOM’S CABIN” called “BLAKE, OR THE HUTS OF AMERICA, OFFICIAL REPORT OF THE NIGER VALLEY EXPLORATION PARTY, AND PRINCIPIA OF ETHNOLOGY” in “THE (WEEKLY) ANGELO-AFRICAN MAGAZINE.” He believed that Stowe had portrayed slaves as too passive, although he praised her highlighting the cruelty of Southern slave owners. This was the first novel by a so-called Negro man to be published in the United States. Masonically, Worship Master Martin R. Delany on June 24th, 1853 at St. Cyprian Lodge No. 13 delivered his Treatise, “ORIGIN AND OBJECTS OF ANCIENT FREEMASONRY: ITS INTRODUCTION INTO THE UNITED STATES, AND LEGITIMACY AMONG COLORED MEN.” In this work Delany credited Africa as being the place where Freemasonry originated. The central argument which Delany was attempting to make, was that the so-called Black man had an inherited right to become Freemasons and therefore they are legitimate. This published work by Delany is the earliest printed work on Prince Hall Freemasonry, which also makes him the first published Prince Hall Freemason. In August 1854, Delany led the National Emigration Convention in Cleveland, Ohio. Delany advanced his emigrationist argument in his manifesto “POLITICAL DESTINY OF THE COLORED RACE ON THE AMERICAN CONTINENT.” The convention approved a resolution stating, “As men and equals, we demand every political right, privilege and position to which the whites are eligible in the United States, and we will either attain to these, or accept nothing.” In 1858, Delany attended John Brown’s Chatham Convention, where Brown presented his Provisional Constitution and revealed a plan to free slaves that led to the raid on Harpers Ferry in October 1859. In May 1859, Delany sailed from New York for Liberia, to investigate the possibility of a new African nation in the region. He traveled in the region for nine months. He signed an agreement with eight chiefs in the Abeokuta region that would permit settlers to live on “unused land” in return for using their skills for the community’s good. In 1861, Delany began planning settlement of Abeokuta. He gathered a group of potential settlers and funding. Delany decided however to remain in America to further work for the emancipation of his people. In 1863, President Abraham Lincoln called for a military draft, and Delany was drafted. He began recruiting black men for the Union Army. His efforts in Rhode Island, Connecticut, and Ohio raised thousands of enlistees; whom joined the newly formed United States Colored Troops. Abraham Lincoln, after basking in Delany’s presence early one February morning in 1865, exclaimed in a letter to Secretary of War Edwin Stanton: “Do not fail to have an interview with this most extraordinary and intelligent black man.” He proposed a corps of so-called colored men led by colored officers who could serve to win over Southern Negroes. Delany was commissioned as a major a few weeks later, becoming the first colored line field officer in the U.S. Army and achieving the highest rank a so-called Negro would reach during the Civil War. He was later transferred to the Freemen’s Bureau, where he shocked (so-called) white officers with his strong call for the right of freed (so-called) Negroes to own land. He ran unsuccessfully for Lieutenant Governor and was appointed a Trial Judge, since he was also a lawyer by trade. In 1877, they formed the ‘Liberia Exodus Joint Stock Steamship Company’, with Delany as chairman of the finance committee. A year later, the company purchased a ship, the Azor, for the voyage. Delany worked as president of the board to organize the voyage. Delany began practicing medicine again in Charleston. On 24 January 1885, he died of tuberculosis in Wilberforce, Ohio.

Edward Wilmot Blyden

Dr. Edward Wilmot Blyden (1832-1912) was called “The Apostle of Blackness.” Blyden was born on August 3, 1832 in St. Thomas, Virgin Islands. His free and literate parents were of Ibo descent. In 1851, he emigrated to Liberia, which had become an independent republic only four years earlier, after the settlement of freed African American slaves. Blyden was a Liberian educator and statesman. He is one of the modern day founding Father of Black Nationalism. Blyden popularized the powerful term, “Africa for the Africans,” which was sparked by Dr. Martin Robison Delany, another Father of what is now called “Black Nationalism!

During a visit to Egypt in 1866 he recorded that: I felt that I had a peculiar heritage in the Great Pyramid built . . . by the enterprising sons of Ham, from which I descended. The blood seemed to flow faster through my veins. I seemed to hear the echo of those illustrious Africans. I seemed to feel the impulse from those stirring characters who sent civilization to Greece…I felt lifted out of the commonplace grandeur of modern times; and, could my voice have reached every African in the world, I would have earnestly addressed him…: `Retake your fame.


His famous quote are: “We need some African power, some great center of the race where our physical, pecuniary and intellectual strength may be collected.”

“Among the free portion of the descendants of Africa, numbering about four or five millions, there is enough talent, wealth, and enterprise, to form a respectable nationality on the continent of Africa.”

Of Blyden, the great Marcus Mosiah Garvey (1887-1940) stated that: “You who do not know anything of your ancestry will do well to read the works of Blyden, one of our historians and chroniclers, who has done so much to retrieve the lost prestige of the race.”

Dusé Mohamed Ali

Dusé Mohamed Ali (Bey Effendi), (November 21, 1866 – June 25, 1945) Pan-Islamist, Pan-African-Asianist, African Nationalist and etc… He was born in Alexandria, Egypt, to an Egyptian father, Abdul Salem Ali (who was an army officer), and a Sudanese mother. In 1911, at the First Universal Races Congress held at the University of London, Ali meet W.E.B. Du’Bois and right after he founded the “AFRICAN TIMES AND ORIENT REVIEW” in London. The journal
covered issues in the United States, the Caribbean, West Africa, South Africa, and Egypt, as well as in Asia, including India, China, and Japan. As a political, cultural, and commercial journal advocating Pan African-Asian nationalism and a forum for African intellectuals and activists from around the world it drew the attention of a wide variety of contributors. Among the writers in the ATOR were George Bernard Shaw, H. G. Wells, Lord Lytton, Annie Besant, Sir Harry H. Johnston, Henry Francis Downing, William H. Ferris, Booker T. Washington and Marcus Garvey.
“Duse was active in Pan-Afrikan circles in London where he tutored the young Garvey.” (Lemelle, 1992, p. 86). It is Duse from whom Garvey got the concept “One God, One Aim, One Destiny,” “Africa for the Africans, those at home and those abroad.” Duse Mohamed Ali, a 96 degree Shriner of the Memphis Rite (and Rosicrucian) met and taught Timothy Drew and after completing studies with the Asiatic Brethren (Rosicrucians) in Cairo, Drew went to Mecca. Author of “ABDUL HAMID SULEIMAN AND THE ORIGINS OF THE MOORISH SCIENCE TEMPLE” and researcher Patrick D. Bowen tells of the Rosicrucian articles written by Duse Mohamed Ali’s wife, Gertrude La Page, for Duse’s journal, “THE COMET”. Regardless, Prophet Noble Drew Ali’s later Adept Chamber 3rd Heaven is based on the Asiatic Brethren Initiatic degrees.

1st Degree Initiation
2nd Chief Degree, Wise Masters
3rd Royal Priests, or True Rosicrucians, or the Melchizedek Degree

“When Noble Drew Ali arrived and registered in Havana, Cuba, He autographed His High Name of “El Hajj Sheik Sharif Abdul Ali” (allegedly) given to Him by Sultan Abdul Aziz Ibu of the Saudi Family upon completing the Pilgrimage in the Holy City of Mecca, Saudi Arabia. That event occurred during 1912 shortly after receiving the Kemetian Adept Degree of “Prophet” from the Noblest Authorities of the Ancient Egyptian Order (Order of the Asiatic Brethren or The Hermetic Brotherhood of Luxor). It was there He was bestowed the name of ‘Faithful’ (Moslem) in order to be accepted into the Holy City of Mecca.” It’s also been stated, in 1924 it is said the Professor Drew had an INFINITE EXPERIENCE, and this event was the beginning of his PROPHETHOOD and the usage of the attribute “Ali” annexed to his surname “Drew.” Hence, from 1912, receiving the “High name” El Hajj Sheik Sharif Abdul Ali…he did not openingly use it. He went by Professor Drew, then in 1924, he began going by the name Noble Drew Ali. Prophet Noble Drew Ali did state, “I was given a high name over there but you can not use it over here. Be good Moors and I will hand it down to you” (El Hajj Sheik Sharif Abdul Ali). In 1926 Ali established the Universal Islamic Society in Detroit, Michigan (which in turn influenced the creation of the Allah’s Temple of Islam, which later became the Nation of Islam by Wallace D. Fard Muhammad in 1930) (read, “ISLAMIC ORIGIN OF THE ROSE-CROIX? 2006 02 18 by Emile Dantinne [Sar Hieronymus]) (Read “THE MOORISH AMERICAN PROPHET NOBLE DREW ALI” by Professor Ravanna Bey).

Booker T. Washington

Booker T. Washington (1856-1915) was one of the most influential people in Marcus Aurelius “Mosiah” Garvey’s life. Garvey was captivated by Booker T. Washington’s autobiography “UP FROM SLAVERY.” Garvey wrote to the great man. Through the correspondence with Washington, Garvey made plans to visit the United States. Unfortunately, when he finally arrived in America, Washington had died the previous year in 1915, but a visionary like Garvey was not deterred by this setback. Booker T. Washington was one of the most powerful African Americans at the turn of the twentieth century. Born a slave in Hale’s Ford, Virginia, the son of a white man who did not acknowledge him and a slave woman named Jane (Burroughs) who later married a fellow slave, Booker T. Washington became a leader in black education, and a strong influence as a racial representative in national politics.Washington learned to read and write in the late 1860s at a primary school overseen by the Freedmen’s Bureau and in 1872 became a student at the Hampton Institute inVirginia, where he excelled. He was teaching at Hampton in 1881 when he was invited to become the first principal of the newly-founded Tuskegee Institute, a school for African Americans in Tuskegee, Alabama. At Tuskegee, Washington developed a vocational curriculum that emphasized carpentry, printing, tinsmithing, and shoemaking. Girls also took classes in cooking and sewing, and boys studied farming methods. All students received instruction in manners, hygiene, and character.

Washington was known as a racial accommodationist. He rejected the pursuit of political and social equality with whites in favor of developing vocational skills and a reputation for stability and dependability. In a famous 1895 Atlanta address, Washington urged African Americans to “cast down your buckets where you are,” that is, to remain in the Jim Crow South and tolerate racial discrimination rather than make what he considered intemperate calls for equality. “In all things that are purely social,” he said, blacks and whites “can be as separate as the fingers, yet one as the hand in all things essential to mutual progress.”His admirers included Theodore Roosevelt, who invited him to dine at the White House in 1901 and consulted him as an advisor on racial issues and southern political patronage. Washington, in turn, secretly used his wealth and power to finance challenges to Jim Crow laws and invest in selected black newspapers. Washington gained further prominence with the 1901 publication of his best-selling autobiography, Up From Slavery.

But Washington’s philosophy of racial uplift was bitterly opposed by some African American intellectuals, most notably W.E.B Du Bois. In 1903, Du Bois published the essay, “Of Mr. Booker T. Washington and Others,” in his book The Souls of Black Folk. He criticized Washington for failing to realize that without political power, economic gains were short-lived and vulnerable. Du Bois also believed that vocational education to the exclusion of the liberal arts would deprive African Americans of the well-trained leaders they sorely needed. In a time of increasing discrimination and racial violence, Du Bois argued, blacks must press for civil rights rather than accommodate inequality.

The “self-made man” image created in Washington’s Up From Slavery, and the philosophy of self-sufficiency and social segregation epitomized in the Tuskegee curriculum, were inspirations to Marcus Garvey. Garvey contacted Washington in 1914 – 1915, and made plans to visit Tuskegee. Garvey intended to meet with Washington to discuss the formation of a school in Jamaica based on the Tuskegee model. But Washington died in November 1915, four months before Garvey arrived in the United States.Du Bois’s experience in the South caused him to reject the accommodationist methods of Booker T. Washington, and to press for public protest against racial violence and discrimination. He advocated the development of an intellectual elite, which he called the “talented tenth,” of African Americans to provide leadership for the race, and argued for an aggressive strategy toward black integration into American political and economic life. In 1903 Du Bois published his first collection of essays, The Souls of Black Folk. In it he said, “the problem of the twentieth century is the problem of the color line,” and dismissed the accommodation to discrimination advocated by Booker T. Washington. “[When] Mr. Washington apologizes for injustice,” Du Bois wrote, “he does not rightly value the privilege and duty of voting, belittles the emasculating effects of caste distinctions, and opposes the higher training and ambition of our brighter minds…we must unceasingly and firmly oppose [him].”

Du’Bois was an activist as well as an intellectual. In 1905 he helped to found the Niagara Movement, and in 1910, its successor, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP). As the editor of the NAACP’s publication, The Crisis, for some twenty-four years, Du Bois published the work of Langston Hughes, Countee Cullen, and other Harlem Renaissance writers as well as his own increasingly radical opinions.

Personal and political antagonism between Du Bois and Marcus Garvey was formidable and long-standing. The ideological differences between the two men are often characterized as integration vs. separatism and the merits of elite vs. working class leadership (although the latter is somewhat obscured by Garvey’s pro-capitalist outlook and Du Bois’s Marxism); but both in their lifetimes supported the ideas of economic nationalism, pan-Africanism, and the preservation of a black cultural heritage.

Antagonism between the two men started almost immediately upon Garvey’s arrival in the United States. Garvey hand-delivered a pair of tickets for his first public speaking engagement and an invitation for Du Bois to chair the meeting to Du Bois at the offices of “The Crisis,” but later received only a perfunctory note of acknowledgement from Du Bois’s secretary which indicated Du Bois would not be able to accept the invitation because he was out of town. Garvey would take surprised note, when he visited The Crisis office, of the absence of visible black staff. In fact, The Crisis was largely white; as director of publications and research, Du Bois was the only African American among its early officers. This fact would soon become a weapon in the hands of a propagandist as skillful as Garvey.

At first, W.E.B. Du Bois gave tepid support to Garvey’s ideas for black independence and to the idea of Garvey’s Black Star Line. But by 1920 Du Bois had become deeply suspicious of Garvey’s methods, ideas, and motives, and published his own damning expose of Black Star Line finances in The Crisis. The animosity between the two men became personal and venomous. W.E.B. Du Bois called Garvey the most dangerous enemy of the Negro race — either “a lunatic or a traitor”. He said Garvey “suffered from serious defects of temperament and training” and described him as “a little, fat black man; ugly, but with intelligent eyes and a big head”. How childish and immature of Du Bois. Why didn’t he stick to the philosophical issues? Garvey, himself was pulled down to the ignorant arena. Garvey countered by calling Du Bois the Negro “misleader” and said Du Bois was “a little Dutch, a little French, a little Negro…a mulatto.” Why in fact,” Garvey wrote, “he is a monstrosity.”

Ironically, W.E.B. DuBois, the founding member of the New York City chapter, said the Boule’ (Sigma Pi Phi) was created to “keep the black professional away from the ranks of Marcus Garvey.” Sigma Pi Phi was incorporated, founded May 15, 1904 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. This is the 1st black fraternity in america and was before the 1st black “college” frat, The Boule’ is a black GREEK secret society based on another secret society founded at Yale University called Skull & Bones. The Boule’s primary founder was Dr. Henry Minton (along with Dr.’s Eugene T. Henson, Edwin Clarence Howard, Algernon Brashear Jackson, Robert Jones Abele and Richard John Warrick), of Philadelphia.
​Nevertheless, Du Bois even shared Garvey’s reverence for Africa, and was himself committed to the cause of African freedom. Visiting Africa in the 1920s, Du Bois wrote that his chief question was whether “Negroes are to lead in the rise of Africa or whether they must always and everywhere follow the guidance of white folk.” He organized the first Pan-African Congress in Paris in 1919 and helped coordinate other congresses in 1921, 1923, and 1927. Du Bois moved increasingly to the left in his political thinking, embracing a Marxist analysis of black labor in the United States and eventually advocating a “nation within a nation” form of black economic separatism or cooperation during the Great Depression. In 1944, in his mid-seventies, Du Bois declared that he would spend “the remaining years of [his] active life” in the fight against imperialism. He helped organize the 1945 Pan-African Congress in Manchester, England, which elected him its international president. He was dismissed from the NAACP in 1948 and became the vice chair of the Council on African Affairs, which monitored political events in Africa and supported nascent African liberation movements.

Because of his growing radicalism, Du Bois was subjected to increasing governmental restrictions and harassment, just as Garvey had been before him. In 1951, at the height of the Cold War, he was indicted under the Foreign Agents Registration Act of 1938. Though he was acquitted, the United States government refused to issue Du Bois a passport, barring him from foreign travel until 1958. In 1960 Du Bois attended his friend Kwame Nkrumah’s inauguration as the first president of Ghana; and the next year, Du Bois moved there. He became a Ghanaian citizen and died in Accra in 1963, on the eve of the March on Washington, the seminal event organized by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and other civil rights leaders.

Marcus Aurelius “Mosiah” Garvey, Jr.

Marcus Aurelius “Mosiah” Garvey, Jr., (17 August 1887 – 10 June 1940) was a publisher, journalist, entrepreneur, Negro Nationalist, Pan-Africanist, and orator. Marcus Garvey was founder of the Universal (United) Negro Improvement Association and African Communities League (UNIA-ACL). He organized the first branch of UNIA in June 1917 and began published the “NEGRO WORLD”, a journal that promoted his African nationalist ideas, which by 1920 had a
circulation somewhere between 50,000 and
200,000. AFRICA’S WEALTH by Marcus Garvey excerpt taken from an article originally published in the “NEGRO WORLD” on April 18, 1923. “If the oil of Africa was good for Rockefeller’s interest; if iron ore was good for the Carnegie Trust; then surely these minerals are good for us. Why should we allow Wall Street and the capitalists group of America and other countries to exploit our country when they refuse to give us a fair chance in the countries of our adoption? Why should not Africa give to the world its Black Rockefeller, Rothschild, and Henry Ford? Now is the opportunity. Now is the chance for every Negro to make every effort toward a commercial, industrial standard that will make us comparable with the successful business men of other races.” In 1919 Mr. Garvey created an international shipping company called the Black Star Line. Also, in 1919 Garvey purchased an auditorium in Harlem and named it Liberty Hall. There he held nightly meetings to get his message out, sometimes to an audience of six thousand. Garvey’s organization was extremely popular. The UNIA held an international convention in 1921 at New York’s Madison Square Garden. Also represented at the convention were organizations such as, the Universal Black Cross Nurses, the Black Eagle Flying Corps, and the Universal African Legion. Garvey attracted more than 50,000 people to the event and in his cause. The UNIA had 65,000 to 75,000 members paying dues to his support and funding. The national level of support in Jamaica helped Garvey to become one of the most influential leaders of the 20th century on the island. Garvey and the UNIA established 700 branches in thirty-eight states and over 2 million members by the early 1920s. In At one point, Garvey claimed to have six million members.

“FREEMASONRY AND THE BLACK MUSLIM MOVEMENT IN AMERICA” by Michael R.
Scheiderer states, “Marcus Garvey was a member of Prince Hall Freemasonry.
Mary Lefkowitz states “To a large extent, the UNIA was organized along Masonic lines: it had a significant benevolent function: It had
a constitution based on the Masons’; it also had a“potentate,” an potentate’s helmet closely resembled the ceremonial hat worn by Masons in special parades.”

According to “FAMOUS NEGRO MASONS” Marcus Garvey-Founder of the United Negro Improvement Association was a freemason and belonged to a lodge in Ponce, his native city (www.trosch.org/msn/mason-graphics.html).

“MOORISH HOLY KORAN CIRCLE SEVEN” CHAPTER XLVIII THE END OF TIME AND THE FULFILLING OF THE PROPHESIES”

1. The last Prophet in these days is Noble Drew Ali, who was prepared divinely in due time by Allah to redeem men from their sinful ways; and to warn them of the great wrath which is sure to come upon the Earth.

2. John the Baptist was the forerunner of Jesus in those days, to warn and stir up the nation and prepare them to receive the divine creed which was to be taught by Jesus.

3. In these modern days there came a forerunner of Jesus, who was divinely prepared by the great God-Allah and his name is Marcus Garvey, who did teach and warn the nations of the earth to prepare to meet the coming Prophet; who was to bring the true and divine Creed of Islam, and his name is Noble Drew Ali who was prepared and sent to this earth by Allah, to teach the old time religion and the everlasting gospel to the sons of men. That every nation shall and must worship under their own vine and fig tree, and return to their own and be one with their Father God-Allah.
Note: The above photo is “allegedly” NOT a pic of Prophet Noble Drew Ali with Marcus “Mosiah” Garvey.

Interestingly, it is reported by the UNIA that in 1927 Garvey claimed to know nothing about Ali or his organizing efforts using his name. Obviously, this is not completely true! The following post card and article states otherwise (Note: It is claimed that the above picture is not of Prophet Noble Drew Ali? However, the below information proves nevertheless, that Marcus Garvey and Prophet Noble Drew Ali did have personal contact).

Here is even a more clearer look at the back of the post card sent to Prophet Nble Drew Ali’s wife after seeing the Honorable Marcus ‘Mosiah’ Garvey.

On the picture above on the right hand side from the book “BLACK CRESCENT: THE EXPERIENCE AND LEGACY OF AFRICAN MUSLIMS IN THE AMERICAS” by Michael A. Gomez pg. 227, states that Garvey in September of 1927 had never heard of Noble Drew Ali and this may be true, however, based on the post card above, it is dated October 23, 1927, which is a month later. Obviously, by this time Prophet Noble Drew Ali and Marcus ‘Mosiah’ A. Garvey had met. Further research on behalf of the author was not done. Therefore, it is necessary to update the Moorish legacy. This was also the year (1927) that the “MOORISH HOLY KORAN CIRCLE SEVEN” was published – stating “All authority and rights of publishing of this pamphlet of 1927.” As previously mentioned, it also states, CHAPTER XLVIII – “THE END OF TIME AND THE FULFILLING OF THE PROPHESIES” : 3. In these modern days there came a forerunner (John, the Baptist) of Jesus, who was divinely prepared by the great God-Allah and his name is Marcus Garvey, who did teach and warn the nations of the earth to prepare to meet the coming Prophet. Therefore, this passage was written in 1927. Now we know for sure that Prophet Noble Drew Ali’s met with Marcus ‘Mosiah’ A. Garvey. We can assume that the “MOORISH HOLY KORAN CIRCLE SEVEN” was soon written after October 23, 1927 of the same year (1927). The following passage is taken for the “NEGRO WORLD” Editor Marcus ‘Mosiah’ Garvey and it states the origin of the concept that Marcus ‘Mosiah’ Garvey came as “John, the Baptist”, which is founded as previously stated in the “MOORISH HOLY KORAN CIRCLE SEVEN”.

Timothy Drew

Timothy Drew was born January 8th 1886 near by Clinton, Sampson (Simpson Buck) County, North Carolina. According to “BEFORE THE FEZ- The Life and Times of Noble Drew Ali 1886-1924”, Journal of Race Ethnicity and Religion, Vol 5, No. 8 (Aug 2014): by Fathie Abdat, states “From Ancestry.com … details in the draft card verified that Thomas Drew was the same person as Noble Drew Ali even though the former’s first name “Thomas”. Above is also a 1920 Federal Census Records for Newark. note line 35 under Thomas Drew where he lives on 181 Warren St. (same address as advertising card of Professor Drew, Egyptian Adept) and his occupation as “preacher on public streets” confirming him as Drew Ali in Newark’s Canaanite Temple.

The “101 MOORISH QUESTIONNAIRE” states, 011. Where was Noble Drew Ali born? In the State of North Carolina, 1886 (Note: “THE CHARLOTTE OBSERVER” dated Sunday, August 15th 1993, stated that “North Carolina in 1690 reported the presence of Moors and that they are the ancestors of a people erroneously called Melungeons.” Dr. Barry Fell (Harvard University) introduced in his book ‘SAGA AMERICA” – The descendants of the Muslim visitors of North America are members of the present Iroquois (Chiroquois, Cherokee [Tsalagi, Shariqi]), Algonquin, Anasazi, Hohokam and Olmec native people [Choctaw, Washitaw]). Nevertheless, it’s reported that his Aunt (Sarah Turner), who beat him often, once threw him into a blazing furnace; yet Allah saved him from the flames. Later on he ran away from home and one night while walking on the road, he heard a voice which stated, “Where thou goeth, I goeth!” It was Sarah Turner (Tunica) who raised Timothy Drew after the deaths of his parents and taught him his true heritage (history), lineage and legacy. In 1902 at the age of 16, Timothy Drew became a merchant sea mariner and traveled to Egypt where he was initiated into the Lesser Mystery Systems of the great pyramids and also traveled to Morocco, Hijaz (Saudia Arabia) and etc… where he studied Islam under some of the top Imams of North Africa. After Timothy Drew proved his Prophethood before Hierophants of Egypt, he made his only pilgrimage to Mecca and received a new name “El Hajj Sheik Abdul Sharif Ali” and charter to teach Islam in America from Sultan Abdul Aziz Bin Abdul Rahman Bin Faisal AI-Saud (1876- 1953) who was the head of the Holy City of Mecca and direct descendant of Hagar (allegory). Allegedly, in 1924, Professor Drew had a dream in which soon after he annex his name with Ali. The is not true. According to “THE MOSLEM SUNRISE – AHMADIA NEWS ABROAD shows a picture of Professor Drew, while a member of the Ahmadiyya movement, name was Maulvi Mubarak Ali, B.A. (Bachelors of Arts degree). He later become known as Prophet Noble Drew Ali. The Prophet honored the Sultan by placing his image in the first edition of the “THE MOORISH HOLY KORAN CIRCLE SEVEN.” (Note: According to the Moorish Science account, at the age of 16 he befriended a band of Roma [‘Gypsies’] with whom he traveled the world, although other accounts state he shipped out on a merchant seaman, became a railway express manor. He was a struggling agricultural and port laborer in Norfolk and Richmond, Virginia. “The essay “BEFORE THE FEZ: THE LIFE AND TIMES OF DREW ALI, 1886-1924” by Fathie Abdat represents one of the first academically published journal that critically examines the early roots of Noble Drew Ali before 1925 from an empirical, scientific perspective through scrutinizing authentic documents such as World War I documents, federal censuses, street directories, etc. As a result, for the very first time in American Islamic scholarship, one is able to unveil his elusive mystical past. Followers are able to glean insights into Ali’s adopted family structure in Norfolk, Virginia, his employment records as a farmhand, longshoreman (Norfolk, Va.), porter (Richmond, Va.), port laborer and preacher (Newark, N.J.). Moorish Americans are also able to examine Ali’s early religious experimentation in Warren St., Newark, N.J. as Prof. Drew, the Egyptian Adept demonstrating his abilities as a genius proselytizer in organizing the Moorish Science Temple from the decaying ruins of Abdul Hamid Suleiman’s Canaanite Temple between 1923 and 1925. This essay also illuminates on reasons for Ali’s selection of material for the Circle 7 Koran and his early organizational maneuverings in the evolution of Moorish Temple’s names. It’s a piece of work all American Muslims need to delve into to discover the real Noble Drew Ali, by stripping the various layers of myths that has veiled his true identity for more than a century. And it is even told that he joined a circus and became a stage magician. Some researchers wonder whether Timothy Drew actually left the States at all. Well, no need to wonder. The article bear witness to this fact that he was an Ahmadi Moslem Missionary in England and opened a mission in Germany.

(Timotheos) meaning “Honoring God”. The name Drew is of Welsh origin and means “Wise”. Ali (Arabic: علي, ʿAlī) is a name, from the Arabic root ʿ-L-Y which literally means “high” or “Elevated”. Therefore his name means “Honoring God, who is Wise, High and Elevated.” The Prophet has been with us always. Here he is in the Ahmadiyyah movement under his name Maulvi Mubarak Ali. The MST of A is the culmination of the great works of the Asiatic Brotherhood, the Mahdist
movement, the Ahmadiyyah movement, the Moorish Zionist Temple, the Canaanite Temples, and etc… (see Aseer, the Duke of Tiers).

TIMOTHY DREW AS A TRAIN EXPRESSMAN IN 1911

THE CANAANITE TEMPLE, NEWARK, NEW JERSEY

In 1906 Timothy Drew was a train expressman called a Pullman Porter working for Illinois Central B & O Railroad, also known as Mainline of Mid-America Railroad. He was raised in a Baptist church and moved to Newark, New Jersey in 1907, and attempted to build a militant Christian organization to combat racism and segregation. This group was known as the Drew Baptist Movement. Drew had to compete with the growing influence of major black churches such as the African Methodist Episcopal Church (first Bishop Henry Mc’Neal Turner was a relative of the Prophet) and the Black Baptist church. Drew soon discarded the notion of founding a Christian organization and turned to the new concept of Islam. Between 1908 and 1910, it is alleged Timothy Drew return from the east to the states and joined the Prince Hall Masons (PHO) (read, “ISLAM IN THE AFRICAN-AMERICAN EXPERIENCE” by Richard Brent Turner). Timothy Drew became a Noble of the Ancient Egyptian Arabic Order Mystic Shrine. But unlike others, he became attached to the principles, creed and faith of the ONE GOD principal as taught by Prophet Mohammed (read, “WHO IS PROPHET NOBLE DREW ALI?” by Chief Minister Dr. Ra Saadi El). In fact, the “Black Shriners” had sometimes been referred to as “Moorish Nobles,” and apparently even capitalized on the association in American culture of the image (in its more favorable manifestations) of the Moor with physically and sometimes morally strong, free blacks. In 1912, he united himself with two other individuals: one by the name Sulaiman Mohammed, the other Emir Abdul Karim El of Morocco (his Masonic-Shriner Brothers…to form a Masonic Temple you need three individuals). From there he received certain books, lessons, and knowledge to think on greater things. Muhammed al-Ahari speaks on the founding of the Canaanite Temple. “In 1905, Drew Ali met an Egyptian, Dr. Sulaiman, and invited him to come back to the United States with him. By 1913, Timothy Drew had also become a high level Shriner and a member of the Grotto under Dr. Sulaiman’s Medina-Mecca Temple, prior to the establishment of the Canaanite Temple. However, in the same year — the Canaanite Temple — with Dr. Sulaiman Mohammed, Emir Abdul Karim El and Professor Drew was established” (“ABDUL HAMID SULEIMAN AND THE ORIGINS OF THE MOORISH SCIENCE TEMPLE” by Patrick D. Bowen). Professor Drew began his teachings of law and history in the 1st floor Barber Shop at the corner of the building. R. Dixon El, the Owner, became His first Adept and often taught when the Prophet was on the road. Moorish Men became the founding Sheiks of the Temple and later brought their women and children to the meetings. The temple grew rapidly and was moved upstairs to the 2nd floor and by 1913, the (Old) Canaanite Temple was born from this union on May 1, 1913, Newark, New Jersey (Jerusalem). The Canaanite Temple building was located in Newark, New Jersey. The address of that building was: Seven Rutgers Street corner 12th Avenue, and West Market Street (see above picture). (Note: The late J.A. Rogers of Helga Rogers Publications was also one of Professor Drew’s students and wrote about the sciences he learned in “FROM SUPERMAN TO MAN.” There also came Father Divine, Daddy Grace, “God”, and etc. who had come out of the earlier attempts to establish the Faith of Mohammed). Suleiman’s assistant was a twenty-two-year-old man named Wali(d) Abdul Farrad Muhammad Ali who lived at 332 Halsey St. in Newark, and had conducted meetings for the group. Professor Drew’s was challenged by Wali(d) Abdul Farrad Muhammad Ali (same name used by David Ford-El later on, but some speculated that they were two different persons) and in 1916 while teaching Arabic classes at Canaanite Temple in Newark, New Jersey, him and Professor Drew got into a dispute where he claimed the Professor Drew was teaching a version of Islam that was watered down. Here is the account according to Bro. Claudas M. El in his book “THE BIOGRAPHY OF THE MOORS,” “Later as time went on, the Prophet’s accomplishments were temporarily stopped. He received his first of many troubles to be faced him. A New Comer came into the picture. He was an Arab named (Farrad Muhammad…a Syrian Egyptian man named Walid Abdul Farrad Muhammad Ali) from a Moslem Middle Eastern Country of Arabia who came to Newark teaching Arabic. Being that the Moslem religion and the National side was new to the followers of Noble Drew Ali, the Arabian became more interesting to most of the people. The Prophet never taught a foreign language to his followers. He taught the people in the language they knew all their lives, English, a language that has been with the people since slavery time; 134 years ago or so. The Prophet’s followers began leaving the Canaanite Temple, following a foreign stranger they knew nothing of. The Prophet spoke to some of his followers elaborating on the event that had taken place. He told the gathering how the foreigner had come in and scattered his children, (his followers). The Prophet predicted that something would over take the Arabian for what he had done.” However, based on the latest information, it may not have been Walid Abdul Farrad Muhammad Ali, but the ‘Arabian’ known as Dr. Suleiman Mohammed. Nevertheless, this split caused the the disbandment of the Canaanite Temple and the formation of the “MOORISH DIVINE MOVEMENT” under its umbrella the”Holy Moabite Temple of Science of the World” (also called the “Moorish Holy Temple of Science of the World”) on May 1st, 1916 (the same year of 1916 the “so-called” Jewish people established the Zionist Movement). According to various sources, a few members of “Holy Moabite Temple of Science of the World” began taken issue(s) with Professor Drew and by 1919, Professor Drew and several members moved from Newark, New Jersey to Chicago, Illinois and re-established the “MOORISH DIVINE MOVEMENT,” the name used on the official seal (later known as the Moorish National Divine Movement of North America, the Moorish National and Divine Movement, and / or the Moorish Divine and National Movement). Even so, unofficially, the members still referred to the movement as the Moorish Holy Temple of Science of the World (read, “ENCYCLOPEDIA OF AFRICAN AND AFRICAN-AMERICAN RELIGIONS” by Stephen D. Glazier, and “THE MUQARRABEEN FILE BOOK VOL 1” by Brother R. Edwards-El, A.S.D.M., Author Brother J. Barnes-Bey, Co-Author).

By 1926, the “Moorish Holy Temple of Science of the World” would become incorporation under the name “Moorish Temple of Science” (also by this time unofficially called “Allah’s Temple of Islam”…this name would later go on with various members to become the “Nation of Islam”), which had been set aside in 1925. However, it was not until November 29, 1926 that the Articles of Incorporation were filed Essentially, making it a civic corporation of the State of Illinois. Remember, the states retained sovereignty at this time and thus, the Moorish Temple of Science was established before the “New Deal” of 1933 under President Franklin Delano Roosevelt and the 501c3 under President Lyndon Baines Johnson. Therefore, the “Moorish Temple of Science” had its own jurisdiction, as a sub division of the City of Chicago (private sector), just like the Catholic Church (Vatican City) did a year later to be incorporated within the City of Rome, Italy. This is the importance of the Certificate of Corporation #10580, known as the Charter. In fact, the first nationality cards, as well as, the adept chambers were formed under the original (civic) corporate status and it was in these adept chambers Moors were instructed and sent out with the learning truths of the Prophet Noble Drew Ali, who were instructed to teach our people and erect temples in the name of the Moorish Holy Temple of Science of the World, (officially, the Moorish Temple of Science) between 1926-1928 (Sheik D. Hubbert-Bey).

MOORISH TEMPLE OF SCIENCE
Note: James Lomax-Bey was a director (trustee) on the 1926 paperwork for the Moorish (Holy) Temple of Science, but was not a director on the paperwork for the Moorish Science Temple of America.

MOORISH SCIENCE TEMPLE OF AMERICA
In the “MOORISH LITERATURE” – “MOORISH LEADER’S HISTORICAL MESSAGE TO AMERICA”, Prophet Noble Drew Ali states…”We organized as the Moorish Temple of Science in the year of 1925. and were legally incorporated as a civic organization under the laws of the State of Illinois… November 29th. 1926… “Since the work of the Moorish Science Temple of America was largely religious, the organization has been legally changed to a religious corporation and an affidavit to this effect has been properly filed in the Cook County Recorder’s office in Illinois”… The name Moorish Temple of Science was changed to the Moorish Science Temple of America, May 2, 1928, as a special meeting was called by July 20th 1928, the first Governors / Sheiks of the Temples (the Supreme Grand Council) were named as the new board of directors for the now Moorish Science Temple Of America. On August 1, 1928 at 2:52 P.M. the affidavit known as our Authority or form 1099 was filed in the County Clerk’s office as notification of the reorganizing of the Temple (forced to make change) changing it’s status from a civic organization to a religious organization (on paper) this was in accordance with the legal requirements of the Secretary of the State of Illinois”… Noble Drew Ali, Prophet shut them down in 1928, on August 1, when he had the Express Trust Recorded … He was the first Moorish-American in the Western Hemisphere to proclaim our sacred heritage (Our Birthrights is the Legacy of our Foremothers and Forefathers) and that’s what the Prophet transferred into the Express Trust after he created the lawful estate (1925-26) / legal corporation (1928) in the land. He did it by way of the Settle Land Act of 1925 and later in 1928 through the Revised Hurd Statutes of the Religious Corporation Act of 1872. Once again, I must note, “The MSTA Moorish Science Temple of America is not solely a religious organization (unless you decipher “religion’ to mean re-alignment in all matters, heaven and earth), it was first set up as a civic organization. It’s a part of the MDNM Moors Divine and National Movement of the world. Have you not read or heard from where we derive our power and authority, or Islamism and Moslem Law? This “Our Authority” record placed the corporate STATE OF ILLINOIS on notice accordingly for their files, not to ask for permission. It is an “affidavit of organization” on form 1099 as an INDEPENDENT contractor. Not a 501 c 3.”

(Note: Below, the name Moorish Holy Temple of Science was still used. Thus, the civic side was never meant to be abandoned and this is obviously seen in the following two flyers, the first to the left states… “THE MOORISH HOLY TEMPLE OF SCIENCE” dated May 16, 1927 and the second to the right states… the “MOORISH SCIENCE TEMPLE OF AMERICA” ‘AND’ the “MOORISH HOLY TEMPLE OF SCIENCE” dated September 15th to the 20th, 1934… six years after the establishment of the “MOORISH SCIENCE TEMPLE OF AMERICA” in 1928; five years after the passing of form of Prophet Noble Drew Ali and the same year (1934) as the Charles Kirkman-Bey’s established “MOORISH SCIENCE TEMPLE OF AMERICA, INC”).

Grand Sheik Hommett Anderson-El

The late Grand Sheik Hommett Anderson-El said, “When I became a member, in March 1928, the Charter on the wall in the meeting hall read Moorish Holy Temple of Science of the World. Our Nationality cards read Moorish Holy Temple of Science of the World. Later on in the year of 1928, The Prophet said that he ‘had to strike his Charters.’ By that, in most of his Temples he had a strip of paper, which read ‘Moorish Science Temple of America; and this was pasted on the Charter, covering up Moorish Holy Temple of Science of the World. There was a few Moorish Charters that he did not touch; one in Chicago, one in Charleston, W. Va., and at that time, the questionnaire and The Koran read, Moorish Holy Temple of Science.'”

Prophet Noble Drew Ali organized the Moorish Science Temple along lines similar to Masonic lodges, with local temple branches and “Adept Chambers” teaching the esoteric wisdom derived from the secret circle of Eastern Sages, the Master Adepts of Moorish Science. “The faith of Islam practiced by those, who are members of the Moorish Science Temple of America is liken to that of a Sufi degree of Islam” – The Moorish Science Temple of America 1928. In the Moorish Divine and National Movement our Religion is Islamism, that Old-Time Religion. In the “101 MOORISH QUESTIONNAIRE” 017. What is our religion? Islamism. 018. Is that a new, or is that the old time religion? Old time religion. In the “ORAL STATEMENTS AND PROPHECIES OF PROPHET NOBLE DREW ALI,” He stated, “You (Moors) don’t recognize Islam because it is yours”… “Your religion is Islamism, something you live everyday.” In “SUFISM”, by Hazrat Inayat Khan states, “Sufism originated from the ancient school of Egyptian mysteries, a school which existed even before Abraham (allegory), the father of three great religions: Christianity, Judaism, and Islam. Those who know Sufism from superficial writings, and, sometimes, from translations of the Arabic or Persian literature, are apt to think that Sufism is the mystical side of Islam. In reality, it is not true. Sufism existed before Mohammed, before Jesus Christ, before Abraham (allegories).” Read “AFRICAN AMERICAN RELIGIOUS CULTURES” by Anthony B. Pinn, Stephen C. Finley, Torin Alexander, it states, “The Moors teach that Al-Islam is the translation of the wisdom of the Egyptian (Kemetic) System into the Arabic language [which is more than 68% Medu Neter] by the Prophet Mohammad (allegory)…When Ali taught he called (it) Islamism. Islamism was to be understood as much older than al-Islam, the “Old-Time Religion” that descends from the ancient mystery systems of Kemet (Egypt). The mysteries of Kemet represents humanity’s (modern) earliest recorded understanding of God or the Divine, and as such it is the foundation of all the world’s religions.” The esotericism (called in Arabic tasawwuf) of Islam is today identified with the Sufis (a word commonly thought to come from the Arabic suf meaning ‘wool’, after the woolen hair by early Muslim mystics). Sufism is not a religion (in the traditional sense), and ultimately exists above and beyond all labels. It is said Sufism is older than Islam and that it really had no beginning. In the words of Sir John Glubb Pasha: “Sufism cannot be defined in words, nor can it be comprehended by the human intellect. It can only be imperceptibly ‘caught’ or imbibed by association with a Sufi master.” Sufi masters are also renowned for communicating with their followers through dreams. There are numerous stories of Sufi saints appearing in a disciple’s dreams and using telepathy to direct followers to undertake a special mission. The Sufi master is revered by his disciples for being in contact with a level of higher consciousness, his mission on Earth directed by higher powers. Studying the lives of some of the greatest Sufi masters we often find them to be wandering holy men (& women) whose actions are usually misunderstood by orthodox believers. The shrines of Sufi masters are centers of trance dancing, exorcism, and miraculous healings. The Sufi tradition is integral to Moorish Science (read, “THE MASONS AND THE MOORS” by Mehmet Sabeheddin).

The initiation methodology of ancient Moorish Science was designed to provide the necessary instruction and guidance for the use of the tools that would lead the apprentice toward mastery of the physical, mental/psyche (soul) and spiritual planes. These keys, for the higher functions and laws of the universe, were imprinted, via frequency, into the minds of the adepts to foster the understanding of the greater gnosis that created, governed and guided the universe and its cosmic cycles. The elect, of the “visible order” of the “Revealers of Light,” that encompassed this great body of knowledge were termed, by the ancients, “the ones that death had forgotten.” Names and titles for these elect illuminaries differed depending upon the language and degree (phase of consciousness) earned by worthy initiates and adepts of the Mysteries of ALLAH (UR RA). An example of this can be found in the title and seat of Melchizedek and Imhotep. In Hebrew, Melchizedek is defined as the King of Righteousness and Peace (Hebrews 7:1-3), just as Imhotep is defined in the Kemet (Egyptian) mysteries as the King of Peace. This seat, power and title, like most attainment phases in the “Hierarchical Command,” is available for those worthy entities that have completed their phase work in their respective consciousness quadrants. This is evidenced by the (allegorical) initiation of Yashua (Jesus), the Christ into the ancient order of Melchizedek (Note: Christ and Melchizedek are one and the same…Supreme Consciousness) as mentioned in the book of Hebrews 7:15-24 and in “THE AQUARIAN GOSPEL OF JESUS THE CHRIST” by Levi Dowling… The esteemed scholar and researcher Dr. George G.M. James in his monumental book titled, “STOLEN LEGACY” that was written in 1954, wrote about the Egyptian Mystery Schools, which he maintained that a complex system of neophyte initiations were developed and worked in Kemet (Egypt). Freemasons or Masonry – As veiled in the Coptic Gnostic Egyptian text, the term Pree-Messen (Freemason) meant “Sons of Light.” These“Sons of Light” are the same divine entities identified in the “MOORISH HOLY KORAN CIRCLE SEVEN” as the “Revealers of Light.” (Dr. John G. Jackson (1972) in “MAN, GOD, AND CIVILIZATION”… stated that the term Free Mason was traced back to the ancient Khametic empire (Egypt). It comes from a combination of two Khametic words Phre [the Sun] and Mas [a Child] meaning “Children of the Sun” and / or “Sons (and Daughters) of Light”. These two words combine to make the word Freemason. The term originated in Egypt and proves that the first Freemasons were ancient Africans (Afrakanu). It also shows that the order originated in Africa. Frank C. Higgins also defines Freemason the same as above, and he has it as Phre-Messen (from Egypt) [Higgins, 1923]. A Freemason is supposed to be an adept or master of the ancient esoteric knowledge of the arts, sciences, mathematics and other great aspects of learning of the old world). The ancient super scientists were the ones that left the Earth with codes written in astrological ideographs, sacred language hieroglyphs and codified measurements and mathematical ratios. This is evidenced by the “HOLY QUR’AN” of Mecca being coded with the mystic number 19 which is connected with the great pyramid and other great structures of the galaxy, which are encoded with the mystic mark of 19.5 degrees. As demonstrated and hidden within the great and sacred text of this Earth, the greater Gnosis of the “Higher Life Intelligence” was never lost, but veiled in code from those that were “ruffian” in mind. The operative science of the “Revealers of Light” was designed to teach the initiate how to press past the material boundaries to free him/herself from the prison of matter and the wheel of Karma (Zodiacal Wheel) to further ascend and connect themselves to the greater universal temple as a “Perfect Ashlar” within the temple’s structure. Under the umbrella of Moorish Science is the department, currently known as Masonry in this age and time. However, the Masonry of today does not reflect the higher life intelligence gnosis, as that science, ancient Masonry was and is for the liberation of the spiritual Man from the fetters of flesh, not for the subjugation and suppression of the ancient wisdom to oppress the minds of masses from self mastery and planetary ascension. (This is the reason why Prophet Noble Drew Ali said, “I have come to pull the covers off all secret societies… The Preachers and the Masons will be the last to accept the truth and the last to come in [to the oneness of being a pure nation])” The greater Gnosis and instruction from the hierarchical command was and is available for those that are willing to submit to the cosmic laws of ALLAH (UR RA) and surrender to the divine path of the higher intelligence, contained in “Self.” However, it must be known that greater Gnosis is only bestowed upon the eager and willing adepts that are loyal and disciplined enough to “earn” that level of knowledge, as nothing comes without a price, test or process of distillation. To be deemed worthy to manifest and carry the message of the greater Gnosis of ALLAH (UR RA), the apprentice must first experience the greatest of all mysteries: The Job Mysteries…(read, “THE ESOTERIC CONNECTION BETWEEN THE MOORISH “REVEALERS OF LIGHT” AND THE MASONIC “SON OF LIGHT” by Z. A. El).

Levi H. Dowling

Levi H. Dowling (May 18, 1844 – August 13, 1911), a Theosophist (Rosicrucian),
and Mystic. He wrote “THE AQUARIAN GOSPEL OF JESUS THE CHRIST OF THE PISCEAN AGE,” first published in 1908. He said he had transcribed the text of the book from the Akashic records and connects very strongly to what Edgar Cayce said about the life of Christ.

Bro. J. Blakely-Bey said that the Holy Prophet said, “The third and fourth generation will see the good of my work.”

Professor Ravanna Bey (3rd generation Moorish American and the Minister of Education for the Washitaw de Dugdahmoundyah Empire) states, “Moorish Americans are required to master the “HOLY KORAN,” a text written in 1926 by the prophet Nobel Drew Ali. It is not to be confused with the Orthodox Qur’an inspired by the (said) Arabian Prophet Muhammad. Drew Ali’s “HOLY KORAN” is an abbreviated version of a Tibetan Text written in the Pali Language before being translated into English. The more complete version of the Tibetan Text is the “THE AQUARIAN GOSPEL OF JESUS THE CHRIST” (written by Levi H. Dowling 1844-1911). Professor Drew took parts of his book from the Rosicrucian work, “UNTO THEE I GRANT” (1925) (previously titled the “INFINITE WISDOM LESSONS” (1923) published by AMORC (Ancient Mystic Order of the Rosae Crucis) and most of it from THE AQUARIAN GOSPEL OF JESUS THE CHRIST, published in 1908 by esoteric Ohio preacher Levi Dowling. In THE AQUARIAN GOSPEL OF JESUS THE CHRIST, Dowling described Jesus’s supposed travels in India, Egypt, and Palestine during the 18 years of his life which are not accounted for by the New Testament. Noble Drew Ali did not claim to be the author of the work, per se, although the final section of the Koran, Chapters 45-48, are in his proverbial hand. The Koran is in three major sections. Chapters 2-19 contain the lost history of Jesus as a child and young man, His travels and teachings in Palestine, Egypt, Europe (Asia Minor), and India. The ministry of John the Baptist also figures heavily in this section. The most probable source for this material is THE AQUARIAN GOSPEL OF JESUS THE CHRIST, although the man credited with this work, Levi H. Dowling, as in the case of Noble Drew Ali, did not claim authorship, but rather suggests that it is a revealed, pre-existing text (Akashic Records). The second major section of the Koran, Chapters 20-44, seems to be derived from the Ancient Egyptian text From clues in the text, it has been suggested by twentieth century scholars familiar with archeological discoveries in Egypt that most of the book was written some time after 1360 BCE by Amenhotep IV, Pharaoh of Egypt, or by some of his successors in the great Egyptian school of mysticism.

“SACRED DRIFT: ESSAYS ON THE MARGINS OF ISLAM” by Peter Lamborn Wilson stated, “According to my informant M. A. Ahari, Noble Drew Ali was a Pythian Knight, a Shriner, a Prophet of the Veiled Realm, and, of course, a thirty-second degree Mason.” (Note: The Ralph McNeil Jr. of the Prince Hall Phylaxis Research Society mentioned that he has a new book coming out documenting that Prophet Drew Ali was member of the Odd Fellows organization – Fahim A. Knight-El).

Prophet Drew Ali may have been a Free Masonic member of the ([PHO] Prince Hall Origin and not the [PHA] Prince Hall Affiliate? But more than likely he was a Free Mason under Dr. Suleiman Mohammed’s “Mecca Medina Temple of Ancient Free and Operative Masons from 1 to 96 degrees,” the “true Shrine”), Shriner, Rosicrucian, Odd Fellow, Knight of Pythias (the reason MSTA meeting were held at the Pythian Hall?) and etc… and I stress was… this is why, it is stated by Bro. O. Payton-Bey of Temple 4 and 25 stated that the Holy Prophet said, “I took the cover off all the secret organizations.” The Prophet states in the “MOORISH HOLY KORAN CIRCLE SEVEN,” “The reason these lessons have not been known is because the Moslems of India, Egypt and Palestine had these secrets and kept them back from the outside world, and when the time appointed by Allah they loosened the keys and freed the secrets, and for the first time in ages have these secrets been delivered in the hands of the Moslems of America. FREEMASONRY AND ISLAM: WHAT DO THEY SHARE?” by Fahim A. Knight states, “Noble Abdul Sharif Ali (Noble Drew Ali) the founder of the Moorish Science Temple of America in 1913 formalized the first Islamic organization in America in Newark, New Jersey, he himself was 33rd degree Mason.” Noble Drew Ali was initiated in several branches of Masonry— a movement which has translated certain elements of Islamic into occidental culture. One possible link with Islam might have risen from the meeting between ‘Assassins’ and Knights Templar during the Crusades; Rosicrucian’s also claim an Eastern origin (in Yemen). From the point of view of ‘heretical’ Westerners, Islam represents a source of esoteric knowledge. From “XEROX MOORISH SCIENCE TEMPLE TEXT,” 1973. 59. Of course, we have a few so-called scholars that try to deny this, but it is quite apparent for those who can see. In the various oaths taken in these so-called secret socieities, one has to state, “I am a citizen (of the United States)!” Prophet Noble Drew Ali exposes this fraud. He states “By you being born here doesn’t make you a citizen.” Negroes, Blacks and Colored People are names given to slaves during the time of slavery. Those born under the powers of the 14th and 15th Amendments are not true Citizens but are declared ‘Persons’ (Commercial property) under the assumable jurisdiction of U.S. Congress.The word ‘Persons’ as used in these Amendments do not legally translate into Men and Women. Furthermore, he states, “I know all true American Citizens are identified by national descent names to answer and apply to the free national constitution of this free National Republic of the United States of America. That’s why I am calling on all true national citizens (non-citizen national (i.e. a person who is a U.S. national but not a U.S. citizen) to help me morally and financially in my great work I am doing to help this national government. For without a free national name, without a descent flag of your forefathers, there is not a national divine title of the government in which we live.” The Prophet make a stark difference between an U.S. citizen (Commercial property) and an American Citizen (non-U.S. National). Thus, the Prophet had no alligence to the various oaths taken.

Arthur H. Fauset, in his pamphlet, Moorish Science Temple of America supports the contention that of Peter Wilson and Robert Uzzel who maintained that Ali’s Islamic movement was heavily influenced by the Mystic Shrine and he indeed borrowed their philosophy, lingo, ritual and the Masonic world view; Fauset states, “Note the extensive use of ritual regalia reminiscent of the ‘Ancient Arabic Egyptian Arabic Orders of the Mystic Shrine of North and South America and its Jurisdiction, known as ‘Black Shriners’. The (so-called) ‘Black Shriners’, consisting of 32 and 33 degree Masons were incorporated as an organization in 1893 in Chicago. They used such titles as ‘Noble’ (Sharif) and ‘Sheik’; called their meeting places ‘Temples’ claimed an ancient origin in Islamic countries and wore fezzes on ceremonial occasions. The Moorish Science Temple utilize the symbols of the symbols of the star and crescent, the’ All -Seeing-Eye’ and two hands shaking (in a Masonic grip) their letterhead.”
In the “MOORISH HOLY KORAN CIRCLE SEVEN” chapter titled, “After the Feast—-the Homeward Journey– The Missing Jesus— The Search for Him—His Parents Find Him in the Temple—-He goes with them to Nazareth—-Symbolic Meaning of Carpenter’s Tools.

It states: “One day as he was bringing forth the tools for work he said: These tools remind me of the ones we handle in the workshop of the mind where things are made of thought and where we build up character. We use the square to measure all our lines, to straighten out the crooked places of the wiry and make the corners of our conduct square. We use the compass to draw the circles around our passions and desires and keep them in the bounds of righteous. We use the ax to cut wiry the knotty, useless, ungainly parts and to make character symmetrical. We use the hammer to drive home the truth, and pound it in until it is a part of every part. We use the plane to smooth the rough, uneven surface of joint and block and board that go to build the temples for the truth. The chisel, line, the plummet and saw all have their uses in the workshop of the mind. And then this ladder with its trinity of steps, faith, hope and love; on it we climb up to the dome of purity in life. And on the twelve step ladder, we ascend until we reach the pinnacle of that which life is spent to build the Temple of Perfected Man.

Why did Holy Prophet Noble Drew Ali give us a book that has classical Masonic philosophy in it? What are we to learn from this Masonic language? Well, in each degree in Masonry the candidate is provide a set of working tools, but we as Free and Accepted Masons are taught to use them for the more noble and glorious purpose. This is what separate Operative Masonry from Speculative Masonry, the former used artistic trades to beautify the external, and the latter Speculative Masonry teaches how to subdue one’s passion and improve themselves in Masonry by instilling the principles of God, friendship and brotherly love. The sublime teachings of right angles, perpendiculars and horizontals, etc., it is also designed to inculcate moral edification and spiritual values. The construction tools have a meaning of duality in Masonry that can only be interpreted from it rites and sacrament (“FREEMASONRY AND ISLAM: WHAT DO THEY SHARE?” by Fahim A. Knight).

.

Prophet Noble Drew Ali stated “I am a universal Prophet, and my philosophy will be universal”

In the lecture, Prophet Noble Drew Ali, “RELIGIOUS CONTROVERSY, states, “The remedy brought by Jesus, Mohammed,
Confucius, and all of the other prophets,
which remedy is truth. In the speech “SAVIOUR OF HUMANITY” states, “Coming as he does with a message for the nations in somewhat the same manner as did Jesus, Mohammed, Buddha, Confucius and other prophets of their day.” Consequently, on each and every one of our Nationality cards, it states, “We honor all the Divine Prophets: Jesus, Mohammed, Buddha, and Confucius.” This is masonic tone. In Carl Claudy’s book, “INTRODUCTION TO FREEMASONRY” (1931), he writes, “In his private petitions a man may petition God or Jehovah, Allah or Buddha, Mohammed or Jesus; he may call upon the God of Israel or the Great First Cause. In the Masonic Lodge he hears petitions to the Great architect of the Universes…This tolerance of all religions is further clarified, “Masonry does not specify any God of any creed; she requires merely that you believe in some Deity, give him what name you will … any god will do …” Albert Pike, former Supreme Pontiff of Universal Freemasonry, likewise exults: “Masonry [is that religion] around whose altars the Christian, the Hebrew, the Moslem, the Brahman [Hindu], the followers of Confucius and Zoroaster, can assemble as brethren and unite in prayer…” (Albert Pike, “MORALS AND DOGMA,” 1906, pg. 226.) (Note: Albert Pike wrote many of the ritual for the Prince Hall masons. “Thornton A. Jackson, Sovereign Grand Commander United Supreme Council, 33°, SJ, PHA from 1887 to 1904 was a personal friend of Albert Pike. Pike gave him an autographed, complete set of the Scottish Rite rituals.” Yes, the founder of the [KKK] Ku Klux Klan, but the PHA is not the origin, it is the PHO).

In the “ORAL STATEMENTS AND PROPHECIES OF PROPHET NOBLE DREW ALI” Sister M Payton-Bey of Temple 4 and 25 said that the Holy Prophet said, “Try to have your temples in buildings, where the meetings are on the second floor, like the Masons.”
The National Compact or National Grand Lodge – Roundtree and Bessel investigation point to numerous

references in the proceedings of Prince Hall Independent Grand Lodge minutes from 1877 on alluding to the continued existence of the National Compact with no mention of its dissolution; while disbandonment was a proposal in 1878 it never was voted upon and approved. What the authors say is that, “ It appears that William H. Grimshaw (Grand Master in PHA) might have taken unofficial resolutions from the Chicago convention that were supposed to be returned to the Grand Lodges for ratification and made them official.” If this be true then the ramifications are enormous. If the National Compact was never dissolved, and because it was constituted by Grand Lodges tracing their lineage to African Lodge #459 and thus was their offspring, then PHO today cannot be declared irregular or clandestine. The charge against PHO of reforming itself illegally can be reversed against those PHA Lodges that withdrew from The Compact. For if they withdrew and reconstituted themselves then they are clandestine (PHO vs. PHA)? (Note: William H. Grimshaw’s 1903 “OFFICIAL HISTORY OF FREEMASONRY AMONG THE COLORED PEOPLE OF NORTH AMERICA” began the story that Prince Hall was born in Barbados to a European father and an African-European mother who fled to the British colony of Massachusetts where Hall became a Methodist minister. Black Freemasonry scholars have for the most part, rejected Grimshaw’s account due to inconsistencies. In 1940 Harold V.B. Voorhis wrote “NEGRO MASONRY IN THE UNITED STATES”. Voorhis based much of what he wrote on Grimshaw’s book. A short time later Voorhis discovered Grimshaw’s book was loaded with errors and fanciful writing, so Voorhis removed his book from distribution. Harry E. Davis wrote “A HISTORY OF FREE MASONRY AMONG NEGROES IN AMERICA” in 1946. He also found Grimshaw’s book full of myths and outright untruths. The question is…”Why would G.M. William Grimshaw make things up or lie?” Well, if you read my book “THE FIRST WORLD ORDER: The Global Paths of the Ancient Ones”, I end the confusion, “Prince Hall, a mystic name is none other than Benjamin Banneker, known as Chief Justice ‘Big Ben’ Bey Emmanuel Mu Ali).
In the article “FREEMASONRY AND ISLAM: WHAT DO THEY SHARE?” by Fahim A. Knight, he writes, “This article will perhaps assist those who are member of Shrine Masonry and hold offices such as: Potentates, Chief Rabbans, Assistant Rabbans, Oriental Guides and High Priest and Prophets, etc., as well as Masons in general, to get a brief understanding of Islam and Moslem (Sons) and their historical, theological, and ritualistic roots.

“MOORISH CIRCLE SEVEN: The Rise of the Islamic Faith Among Blacks in America and It’s Masonic Origins” by Keith Moore 32′. Ali a high degree freemason, incorporated various Masonic teachings from an auxiliary group. Known as the AEAONMS ancient Egyptian Arabic order of noble of the mystic shrine A pseudo Islamic / Arabic oriental organization that served as a wake up call to a lost knowledge. A knowledge that was taken away from Africans during the slave trades. Finally It explores the Masonic symbolisms of Ali’s Moorish science dogma digging deeper into the esoteric side of his Aquarian / Masonic teaching explaining their origins and discovering an age old wisdom that had been kept hidden from the human eye. One would think that Africans in the Americas would have rejected the religious tradition of their European oppressors taking into consideration that African religions are far older & they possess more sources of knowledge & spiritual salvation.
In the Shriners recognition test, it is formatted in a Question and Answer sequence it reads:

Are you a Noble of the Mystic Shrine?” ANSWER: “I am so accepted by all men of noble birth.” QUESTION: “Have you traveled any?” ANSWER: “I Have.” QUESTION: “From where to what place have you traveled?” ANSWER: “Traveled east over the hot burning sands of the desert.” QUESTION: “Where were you stopped at?” ANSWER: “At the Devils Pass.” QUESTION: What were you requested

“by Zachary P. Gremillion, 90th degree Zachary P. Gremillion…”Upon studying the teachings of Noble Drew Ali and the Honorable Elijah Muhammad among many, Mr. Gremillion discovered the original roots of the Masonic order came from Ancient Africa Civilizations.
Noble Drew Ali is often shown in the Master Masonic stance.

We see him in a classical masonic stance with his hand outside of his chest as opposed to inside as he is one that came and revealed the secrets. In order to reveal the secrets he had to first know what they are. Here is the step chart in the masonic stances.

Above in the center is an alleged picture of TImothy Drew aka “Holy Prophet Noble Drew Ali” when he was a Masonic member.

Grand Sheik Messiah Aziz-El of the Moorish Holy Temple of Science of the World 2F (www.HolyMoorishEmporium.com) states, “Its been often mis-construed by our Asiatic brothers and sisters that the Moorish Science Temple is a Masonic lodge of the European accepted orders of Freemasonry. I must specify the term ” accepted,” because the European orders which have the title “accepted,” will not tell you who it is they are accepted by. The body of information and degrees in which they go through is a science that was given to them by the Moors. The Ancient Moors. The Ancient Moors are ones who accepted them! It is not the Moorish Science Temple that gave this system of degrees to the Europeans, as we have organized as a civic organization in 1913/1916 and 1928. The European orders of Freemasonry go back at least to the first crusade(1099 A.D.) Of course, freemasonic lore attempts to tie itself to the Ngu (Pharoah) Thutmose of Ancient Egypt (Kemet / Ta Mare).

Keep in mind that during the time of the crusades, the Moors ruled Spain as well as other parts of Europe. We ruled Spain from 711 A.D. to 1492 A.D. Consequently, when the Europeans, during their occupancy in Islam at the crusades, learned the arts of the Moors. The arts of the Moors, which they learned from us, is what is known today as Advanced Science or Freemasonry.

Understand that these are all of the sciences that they will publicly tell you to stay away from, because they use them to rule you. Once you are aware of these sciences they can rule you no longer.

He further states, “Most Moors will not acknowledge the fact that Prophet Noble Drew Ali was masonic and taught masonic principles, as laid out in the adept chamber of the MHTS, MSTA.

Chapter V, in part (Holy Koran of MHTS)

13. “These tools remind me of the ones we handle in the workshop of the mind where things were made of thought and where we build up character.

14. We use the square to measure all our lines, to straighten out the crooked places of the way, and make the corners of our conduct square.

15. We use the compass to draw circles around our passions and desires to keep them in the bounds of righteousness.

16. We use the axe to cut away the knotty, useless and ungainly parts and make the character symmetrical.

17. We use the hammer to drive home the truth, and pound it in until it is a part of every part.

18. We use the plane to smooth the rough, uneven surfaces of joint, and block, and board that go to build the temple for the truth.

19. The chisel, line, the plummet and the saw all have their uses in the workshop of the mind.

20. And then this ladder with its trinity of steps, faith, hope and love; on it we climb up to the dome of purity in life.

21. And on the twelve step ladder, we ascend until we reach the pinnacle of that which life is spent to build the Temple of Perfected Man.”

It is self evident in chapter V that the principles of masonry were laid out by Prophet Noble Drew Ali in the MHTS. For those who have ever studied masonry or endured in any of the orders of masonry, the above teachings are masonic without a doubt or contradiction!

Prophet Noble Drew Ali was an Egyptian Adept, A.E.A.O.N.M.S. Prophet and Noble are titles within the shrine and Fezzes/turbins are the headress during rituals.”

Grand Sheik Messiah Aziz-El goes on further and asks the question…”What is the shrine?” The shrine of Islam!

Know your history/science Moors! Study up! Study and learn the true nature of yourself and why our ancient forefathers/foremothers, laid down certain schools of thought which are still carried out till this day. What our ancient forefathers were we are today without a doubt or contradiction.

We, the Moors, are the fathers of the mystic shrine and all orders of freemasonry. This is the science of law and government and for commercial purposes we have shared a great deal of these sciences with the pale-skin nations of Europe. Consequently, we have multiple European orders of freemasonry and shriners. Master and Honorable are also titles in the Mystic Shrine. The Honorable Elijah Muhammed states in “Supreme Wisdom,” that we gave the pale-skin Nations of Europe the principles of Islam that he may come around us to do trade and where our flag (crescent moon and star) with the scimitar above it.

LOST FOUND MUSLIM/MOSLEM LESSON NO. 1

“9. Why does Muhammad make the Devil Study from thirty-five to fifty years before he can call himself a Muslim son? And wear the greatest and only Flag of the Universe? And he must add a sword on the upper part of the Holy and Greatest Universe Flag of Islam?

Answer: So that he could clean himself up. A Muslim does not love the Devil regardless to how long he studies. After he has devoted thirty-five or fifty years trying to learn and do like the original man, he could come and do trading among us and we would not kill him as quick as we would the other Devils – that is, who have not gone under this Study. After he goes through with this Labor from thirty-five to fifty years, we permit him to wear our Holy Flag, which is the Sun, Moon and Star. He must add the sword on the upper part. The sword is the emblem of Justice and it was used by the original man in Muhammad’s time. Thus, it was placed on the upper part of the Flag so that the Devil can always see it, so he will keep in mind that any time he reveals the Secrets, his head would be taken off by the sword. We give him this chance so that he could clean himself up and come among us. The Holy Flag of Islam is the greatest and only Flag known. The Universe is everything – Sun Moon and Stars. They are planets. Planets are something grown or made from the beginning. And holy is something that has not been diluted, mixed or tampered with in any form.”

Shriners, deal with Islam in secret. The principles in which the Prophet Noble Drew Ali laid down for us, in the MHTS, MSTA are the science of that which the pale-skin Nations of Europe practice in secret, which is Islam. The Prophet was sent to un-veil these secrets that have been held back by Moslems/Masons/Shriners.

HOLY KORAN OF THE MHTS/MSTA

“The lessons of this pamphlet are not for sale, but for the sake of humanity, as I am a prophet and the servant is worthy of his hire, you can receive this pamphlet at expense. The reason these lessons have not been known is because the Moslems of India, Egypt and Palestine had these secrets and kept them back from the outside world, and when the time appointed by Allah they loosened the keys and freed the secrets, and for the first time in ages have these secrets been delivered in the hands of the Moslems of America.”

Nevertheless, by this first convention of the MSTA in 1928, its Membership had flourished (The Second Supreme Grand Business Manager, Aaron Payne-El was quoted that the number was over “12,000” in 1928) and fifteen temples were established in 10 different states. However, when Prophet Noble Drew Ali veiled form July 20th, 1929, Prophet Noble Drew Ali had established 19 branch temples, 20 subordinate temples, and his membership ran well over one hundred thousand. Faithful members and followers had established Moorish businesses, newspapers and schools and Prophet Noble Drew Ali became an early voice in the “Nationalist” movement.

Temple No. 1, Bro. E. Mealy-El, Governor / Grand Sheik (Chicago, IL.), established on October 15th, 1925, at Unity Hall, 3603 Indiana Ave., Chicago, Illinois. Unity Hall was the meeting location for Subordinate Temple #1 (Note: S.G.S. David Bailey-El, states, “I have seen and held in my hands the Charter issued by our Prophet Noble Drew Ali to Temple # 1. It does not say issued to the Grand Major Temple, it says “Issued to Subordinate Temple # 1… Therefore, the Grand Major Temple and the Grand Body are synonymous. Even so, historical Moorish Guides called Temple #1 a Grand Temple. As a matter of fact while our Prophet Noble Drew Ali was here in the flesh there were eight [8] Grand Temples. Prophet Noble Drew Ali purchased some land at 37th & Federal Street and planned to consolidate the Temple # 1 functions from Unity Hall and the Home Office functions from 3603 Indiana into a building to be built there).

Below is a YouTube – Blog Talk Radio Show “Prophet Noble Drew Ali and the Infiltration of the MSTA

By 1929, Noble Drew Ali had created a multi-million dollar empire. Jealously provoked several of his MSTA high-level businessmen. One of his officers, Sheik Claude D. Greene-Bey accused Drew Ali of wasting MSTA revenues on himself and a succession of women. One Drew Ali’s wives was a lady that Greene-Bey admired and loved…Pearl Drew Ali… It is alleged that her and Sheik Claude D. Greene-Bey had an affair.

This Timothy Drew’s (Prophet Noble Drew Ali’s) and Mary Foreman’s (Mary Drew-Ali) marriage license from April 22, 1929. Mary Foreman is Timothy Drew’s second wife. We must understand that this was the 1920s…this is before driver licenses, and before social security card. The average person did not have these privileges (instruments). Therefore, it was not necessary to put your Free National name into the public side.

THIS IS A PICTURE OF SUPREME GRAND GOVERNOR / GRAND SHEIK JAMES LOMAX-BEY OF TEMPLE #4 IN DETROIT.

Prophet Noble Drew Ali was already warning Supreme Grand Governor James Lomax-Bey (later called Professor Ezaldine Muhammad) since December 27, 1928. Yet, nearly two months later. The Prophet attended a meeting on February 15th, 1929 where Supreme Grand Governor James Lomax-Bey stated that he was now in power and the finance was now his in front of 1,500 members and he brought charges against the Prophet claiming the Prophet embezzled ($8,000.00) eight thousand dollars, when in reality, it was Supreme Grand Governor Lomax Bey who embezzled the (8,000.00) eight thousand dollars from the Prophet and the Moorish Science Temple of America with the help of Supreme Business Manager Claude Greene-Bey attempting to set up Prophet Noble Drew Ali with rape charges and stage a coup to take over the movement. Supreme Business Manager Claude Greene-Bey and Supreme Grand Governor James Lomax-Bey accused the Prophet of spending temple funds on his extracurricular activities. By this time (1929), Drew’s movement boasted more than 100,000 followers, and his annual salary was listed at $36,000; a fortune at the time. “Allegedly” the Prophet received additional stipends for his living expenses, including the mortgage payment for his luxurious trappings on Chicago’s south side, and the salaries for his chauffeur, maid, butler and other domestic attendants. Allegedly, he kept several wives, a host of concubines, and fathered, at least, twenty children. When he tired of one wife, he would quietly “divorce‚” her and “marry another.‚” He also kept four women at the same time and paid for each to live in separate homes.

Prophet Noble Drew Ali was also the founder of the Moorish Manufacturing Corporation, which produce remedies, such as, Moorish mineral and healing oil, antiseptic bath compound, and Moorish tea. Also, his followers began to establish a variety of business enterprises, including restaurants, grocery stores, furniture stores, clothing stores, laundry mats, real estate firms, and “THE MOORISH GUIDE” (also “THE MOORISH REVIEW” and “THE MOORISH VOICE”), a national newspaper etc…). Supreme Business Manager Claude D. Greene-Bey held a special meeting with Supreme Grand Governor James Lomax Bey about removing the Prophet, placing Supreme Grand Governor James Lomax-Bey as the new head, and even starting their own organization, if necessary, because it was believed by them that Supreme Grand Governor James Lomax-Bey had enough followers in Detroit, and Supreme Business Manager Claude D. Greene-Bey had enough followers (including, Grand Sheik Small-Bey, Supreme Grand Secretary Pearl Drew Ali, and Adept Charles Kirkman-Bey) to pull it off. The original members of the Supreme Grand Council: 1. Prophet Noble Drew Ali. 2. Brother George Blackwell-Bey Chicago, Ill 3. Brother Richard Ross-Bey, Chicago, Ill 4. Governor James Lomax-Bey Detroit, Mich., Temple No. 4, 5. Governor Edward Mealy El, Chicago, Ill, Temple No. 1, 6. Brother Claude D. Greene, Chicago, Ill, Temple No. 1, 7. Sister Pearl Drew Ali, Chicago, Ill, Temple No. 1. The Supreme Grand Council positions were Supreme Grand Chairman, Supreme Grand Sheik, Supreme Business manager, Supreme Grand Governor, Supreme Historian, Supreme Treasurer and Supreme Secretary. Nevertheless, James Lomax-Bey, Claude D. Greene-Bey, Small-Bey believed that they had followers (including Pearl Drew Ali, and Charles Kirkman-Bey) in Temples 3, 4, 7, 9, 15 and 18. The Prophet heard about the coup and held a special meeting with the Supreme Grand Council, who issued a Proclamation, signed by Prophet Noble Drew Ali, Edward Mealy-El, T. Crumby-Bey and C. Childs-Bey removing four members Bro. James Lomax-Bey, Bro. Claude D. Greene-Bey, Sis. Pearl Drew-Ali, Bro. Small-Bey immediately, having all of their credentials revoked and dismissed them from official position and enrollment. The prophet changed the Supreme Grand Council around, the board of directors, and the Moorish guide newspaper, with Aaron Payne El replacing Claude D. Greene-Bey, as the Supreme Business Manager. Richard H. Ross-Bey replaced Claude D. Greene-Bey, as Managing Editor of the Moorish Guide Newspaper, Supreme Grand Governor James Lomax was replaced by Grand Sheik David Ford-El and Supreme Secretary Sis. Pearl Drew Ali was replaced by Supreme Secretary Sis. Mary Drew Ali.

THIS IS A PICTURE OF GRAND SHEIK T. CRUMBY-BEY

Supreme Grand Sheik: E. Mealy El speaks on Kirkman Bey’s betrayal and turning members against him in another 1929 letter from SGS: E. Mealy El, he mentions that he was told to give the keys to Kirkman Bey (as Temple Custodian/Security), if/when E. Mealy El had to leave on Temple business as E. Mealy El stated…..

“the Prophet Noble Drew Ali said to me, ‘I find all of them want to sit in my seat, but at my absence, THAT IS YOUR STATION. Then when you leave, lock the desk and PUT THE KEYS IN YOUR POCKET. Everyone wants to sit there, because that is where the money is, but I know who I want to sit there and I know who I want to handle my money. If you leave for any length of time GIVE THE KEYS to Bro. C. Kirkman Bey UNTIL YOU RETURN.’ “- but C. Kirkman Bey Moors (The Inc.) always leave out the “until you return” part of The Prophet’s instruction. He told Edward Mealy El to get the keys back from Charles Kirkman Bey upon his return, and he did just that. C. Kirkman Bey could’ve been appointed as successor by E. Mealy El, but he wasn’t due to his “betrayal.”

Ch.31:9, “Be faithful to thy trust, and deceive not the man who relieth upon thee; be assured, it is less evil in the sight of Allah to steal than to betray.” Holy Koran of the MSTofA

By March 12, 1929 a struggle for power erupted between Prophet Noble Drew Ali

​and his former Business Manager Claude D. Greene-Bey. Claude D. Greene-Bey now stages his own coup by pronouncing himself the Supreme Grand Chairman (Note: Claude D. Greene worked for Julius Rosewald, a Jewish Philanthropist who fund the purchase of Unity Hall). Prophet Noble Drew Ali’s files and furniture were thrown out onto the street. Claude Greene-Bey took a number of Noble Drew Ali’s followers along with him. So, Prophet Noble Drew Ali request the assistance of the Moorish Grand Governor, T. Crumby-Bey. Ira Johnson-Bey nicknamed “The Hammer,” from Pittsburgh (and others) were sent to quell the rebellion. After a meeting Ira Johnson-Bey (and the others) had with the Prophet about this situation, Ira Johnson-Bey took it upon himself to “REMOVE” the problem (called the bad tooth) all together. Ira Johnson-Bey and three other members paid Claude D. Greene-Bey a visit on March 21st, 1929, there was a fight at the “Booster Club.” Claude D. Greene-Bey was stabbed multiple times on the 2nd floor of Unity Hall (located on 3140 Indiana Avenue, Chicago, Illinois), shot by Ira Johnson Bey and his dead body was taken down to the alleyway behind Unity Hall. Later, Bro. Small-Bey admitted it was Ira Johnson-Bey that had done the shooting to police. It was also Sheik Small-Bey’s testimony that spoke on the meeting the Prophet held before the shooting… that caused the police to charge the Prophet in connection to it. (Note: The murder of Bro. Claude Greene-Bey was allegedly plotted during this meeting between the Prophet and Sheik Ira Johnson-Bey. Sheik Small-Bey would later testify to the police that Sheik Ira Johnson-Bey approached him asking him to remove Brother Claude D. Greene-Bey. He, according to Sheik Small-Bey, offered to pay the expenses of a court trial if he should be arrested in the matter). The police had difficulty obtaining collaborating statements from other members of the organization. However, they did discover that Grand Governor J. Lomax-Bey, Grand Sheik, subordinate Temple #4 in Detroit was also a marked man. And, that Brother Lomax-Bey was allied with Brother Greene-Bey to establish a rival organization (Note: James Lomax, who formed what may have been called the “Mohammedan Church Temple). Brother Greene-Bey, who was Supreme Business Manager, is said to have known many of the Prophet’s inner most secrets. When the split came. Police were also able to obtain from internal sources, a proclamation bearing the signatures of Grand Governor T. Crumby-Bey, Governor C. Child-Bey, Supreme Grand Sheik E. Mealy-El and Prophet Noble Drew Ali dismissing both Bro. James Lomax-Bey and Bro. Claude Greene-Bey from the Moorish Science Temple of America. It was this document and Sheik Small-Bey’s testimony that caused them to originally charge the Prophet in this matter). Sheik Small-Bey was upset about being removed from office and replaced by William Morris-El, by the Supreme Grand Council for supporting Bro. Claude D. Greene-Bey and Bro. James Lomax-Bey also. On March 22nd, 1929, shots were also fired at James Lomax-Bey at Temple No. 4 (supposedly by Ira Johnson-Bey, who was said to have been seen outside on a local phone), but he was missed, a fight broke out between those loyal to James Lomax-Bey, and those loyal to the Prophet, then a full riot broke out and two police officers and two Moors got hurt badly. They were S. Stone-Bey and Z. Lowe-Bey.

​ Prophet Noble Drew Ali was out of town at the time, as he was “allegedly” dealing with Supreme Grand Governor James Lomax-Bey. However, it has also been stated that he was at a celebration”James Lomax-Bey had also supported Supreme Business Manager Claude Greene-Bey’s attempted coup as he staged his own a month earlier. James Lomax-Bey eventually left the country during the proceeding turmoil, and went to Turkey and changed his name to Professor Ezaldine Muhammad. Lomax Bey was not found innocent; he was removed from office and he had fled “allegedly” with the temple’s finances of $8,000 dollars… A traitor! He fled to Turkey and then to Egypt.

He returned in the late 1930s from Egypt, and went on to find the Adenu Allahe Universal Arabic Association, a Sunni organization. Timothy Dingle-El wrote a book, used by both brothers (Richardson and Timothy), entitled “THE RESURRECTION: MOORISH SCIENCE TEMPLE OF AMERICA, INC. – THE TRUTH: BE YOURSELF AND NOT – SOMEBODY ELSE,” (Note: Timothy was also called “Timothy Dingle-El-Noble-Drew-Ali”, the Reincarnated Prophet) states, “The Noble said that he have a bad tooth in his mouth and he is going back to Chicago and get his dentist and have him to pull it out. When he got back to Chicago he called his Adept Chamber together. The Chamber members consisted of people from various secret orders or societies. The Noble told the Chamber his story and asked who would pull this bad tooth out. A Sheik (Ira Johnson-Bey) volunteered and done the job. In “SACRED DRIFT: ESSAYS ON THE MARGINS OF ISLAM” by Peter Lamborn Wilson, he states,Timothy Dingle-El asserted that Prophet Noble Drew Ali really did order the death of Sheik Claude Greene-Bey, and that he was fully justified to do so. Timothy went further, stating, “The Noble Drew Ali was arrested as he sat with his wife (Mary Drew Ali, the daughter of Grand Sheik Foreman-Bey) and a group of his followers celebrating.” The police arrested him and other members of the community on suspicion of having instigated the killing (accessory to homicide). When the Prophet was questioned by authorities he stated that he knew nothing about a hit squad or the murder and allegedly beaten by police, and released on bond (bail) pending an indictment. While release on bail, Prophet Noble Drew Ali issued the following:

“To the Heads of All Temples, Islam: “I, your Prophet, do hereby and now write you a letter as a warning and appeal to your good judgment for the present and the future. Though I am now in custody for you and the cause, it is all right and it is well for all who still believe in me and my Father-God Allah. I have redeemed all of you and you shall be saved, all of you, even with me. I go to bat Monday, May 20, before the Grand Jury. If you are with me, be there. Hold on and keep the faith, and great shall be your reward. Remember my laws and love ye one another. Prefer not a stranger to your brother. Love and truth and Peace I leave all. Peace from Your Prophet, Noble Drew Ali” (“THE MUQARRABEEN FILE BOOK VOL 1” by Brother R. Edwards-El, A.S.D.M., Author Brother J. Barnes-Bey, Co-Author).

Prophet Noble Drew Ali promoted David Ford-El, a.k.a. Master Fard Muhammad (eventhough, the Nation of Islam publically deny this), as the acting head Supreme Grand Chairman, in place of Supreme Grand Sheik Edward Mealy-El? It has been stated the Supreme Grand Sheik was allegedly threaten and beating by Adept Charles Kirkman-Bey and was in hiding. Prophet Noble Drew Ali said, “If you want European Grand Sheiks, I can give them to you.” Personal research has proven that Fard knew Noble Drew Ali well. Fard (Ford) moved secretly throughout America for 20 years before he started the open aspects of His work, according to the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad. ​

Prophet Noble Drew Ali passed form on Saturday, July 20th, 1929, at his home on 3603 Indiana Ave. at 10:10 P.M. at the young age of 43 (the same date one year earlier when the corporate body also officially changed/reorganized in its form). At his bedside were Dr. Clarence Payne-El, Attorney Aaron Payne-El, his father in-law, Bro. Foreman-Bey, and the Prophet’s 2nd wife, Sis. Mary Drew-Ali. Dr. Clarence Payne-El filed the death certificate, which proclaimed that the Prophet died of “Tuberculosis Broncho Pneumonia” (which is to the above). It does not make sense that Prophet Noble Drew Ali died of Tuberculosis when he was a Master-Herbalist and stated in the above article that “I have the secret of destroying the germs of Tuberculosis and Cancer of the Lungs in 10 to 30 days.” Sister Rasmariah Bey of the fame www.rvbeypubilcation.com said on “WE STARTED THINKING LIKE THE COLONIST” Pt. 1/ CINCO DE MAYO 2017, that at the behest of Aaron Payne-El, who was an attorney and the son of Dr. Clarence Payne-El’s who presided over the death certificate, it was Aaron who told his father Clarence to put that Prophet Noble Drew Ali “COLOR or RACE” was “American Black” (see above) and NOT “Moorish American or Asiatic. It is speculated that the Prophet was poisoned by Dr. Clarence Payne-El. These murdering disruptors were agent provocateurs and masonic infiltrators as Elder Taj Tarik Bey have stated on numerous occasions.

“Note that Noble Drew Ali was abused and beaten, then eventually released into the hands of awaiting, disingenuous traitor Moors, and other subversives, who had formerly infiltrated the Moorish Science Temples of America, and who were secretly working to undermine the Moorish Divine and National Movement at the behest of President J. Edgar Hoover, through channels of the F.B.I. and much later C.I.A. Take Note that a ‘Death Certificate’ was issued upon the instance of Noble Drew Ali’s veiling his form, and was dated July 20, 1929.” – Elder Taj Tarik Bey

Even so, we have another bread trail piece of the betrayal. In the below article taken from the “CHICAGO DEFENDER” August 3, 1929, stated, “Attorney Aaron Payne-Ali (wearing the white gloves left) becomes the new head of the society.” Notice, how the article changed Aaron Payne-El to Aaron Payne-Ali, as several other did as they “self-proclaimed” themselves to be the newly re-incarnated Prophet Noble Drew Ali. In fact, less than (3) three months after the passing of Prophet Noble Drew Ali, Attn. Aaron Payne-El walked out the 2nd Moorish Science Temple of America Annual National Convention in 1929 with the M.S.T.A.’s Charter. “Was he simply protecting the M.S.T.A. Charter from those who wanted to take over the ‘Temple'” or “was he one of the ones vying for the highest position?” I mean someone had to report to the media (newspaper) that Supreme Business Manager Attorney Aaron Payne-El was going to be the “new head” of the society?” And besides, he was one of the ones in the room when the Prophet veiled form. “Was the Prophet possibly poisoned?” There were reports that he was poisoned. Despite the official report, many of his followers speculated that his death was caused by injuries from the police or from temple members vying for Ali’s position had him killed. One Moor told the Chicago Defender, “The Prophet was not ill; his work was done and he laid his head upon the lap of one of his followers and passed out.” According to the “ORAL STATEMENTS AND PROPHECIES OF PROPHET NOBLE DREW ALI” Bro. I. Cook-Bey, G.G. (Emeritus) of Illinois said that the Holy Prophet Noble Drew Ali said, “If I cannot teach you here, I will teach you on the soul-plane.” Bro. Edward Mealy-El stated that the Holy Prophet said “I have my number, and my work of redeeming you people is finished, and I must now go, or I can’t return; and if I don’t return, I can’t deliver you, and if I don’t deliver you, then my coming is in vain.” Even so, an autopsy was never conducted and neither was a full-scale police investigation. Consequently, the Prophet’s body was taken to the Frank Edwards Funeral Parlor at 4136 Michigan Ave. and the funeral services were held on Friday, July 26th, 1929 at 1:30 P.M. in the Pythian Temple on 37th Place and State Street, the Prophets’ body was laid to rest at Burr Oak cemetery, Acacia Lawn, Lot 44, Grave 7.

Allegedly, Charles Kirkman-Bey of Temple #9, conducted the funeral eastern burial ritual of Prophet Noble Drew Ali. Whatever he was saying in connection with this ceremony was as foreign to the audience as Caesar to a fourth-grade pupile, at least to that part of the audience not affiliated with the cult.”

NOTE: THE NEWS STATES THAT AARON PAYNE-EL BECOMES THE NEW HEAD…INTERESTING?
An “adept,” but NOT a Sheik Aaron Payne (who had been present at Drew’s deathbed) was “said to be a candidate to succeed Noble Drew Ali…

In letter from Supreme Grand Sheik Edward Mealy-El to Supreme Business Manager Aaron Payne-El dated August 14th, 1929.

In reading your letter to brother Thompson-El a few minutes ago, and in view of the wishes of The Prophet, as laid down in his laws to me, by himself, I wish to call your attention to the fact that it was his will that we hold the coming convention of 1929, beginning September the 15th to the 20th of the same month.

My objection is only that the date which was made by The Prophet be considered as law with me, and remembering also that he said: “As long as you do what I tell you, you will be alright, but when you fail to obey my orders, you will have trouble”, having talked the matter over with all the Governors, I find them all in favor of supporting the date of the convention as laid down by our PROPHET. Now, as business Manager, I am asking you to give away to the time of the PROPHETS choice and arrange your dates accordingly, which begins September 15th to September 20th inclusive. This will also give them more time for Preparation for the same. We must do all we can for Peace, that a progressive advance may manifest itself in all of our actions. This done, all else is well. Trusting this meets your approval,

I am, your brother in Islam,

E. Mealy El.

In another letter dated August 29th, 1929, Supreme Grand Sheik Edward Mealy-El had to warn Supreme Business Manager Aaron Payne-El to stay in line with the Prophet’s structure and practices, from the time of the National Convention, to holding their Adept Chamber meetings. At the 2nd Moorish Science Temple of America Annual National Convention, Supreme Grand Sheik Edward Mealy-El nominated Charles Kirkman-Bey to the position of Supreme Grand Advisor and Moderator. Even so, it was approved by 2/3 of the votes. Many loyal followers of Prophet Noble Drew Ali stormed out 1929 Convention, Supreme Business Manager Aaron Payne-El even took the MSTA Charter with him. Ira Johnson-Bey was highly upset with Supreme Grand Sheik Edward Mealy-El for not nominating him for the position Supreme Grand Advisor and Moderator, so he was trying to take charge of the Movement, starting with the people who had the paperwork first and foremost. He had some of his followers go after Aaron Payne-El (at 3722 Prairie Ave.) who took the MSTA Charter (on September 23rd, 1929), these men were J. Mosby-El, J. Davis-El, G. Johnson-Bey, and S. Gibbons-Bey. On September 25th, 1929, Ira Johnson-Bey had more of his followers kidnap Charles Kirkman-Bey to get the certificate that Charles Kirkman-Bey had been given when appointed Supreme Grand Advisor and Moderator, which is said to have 21 Governors (the original title of the Grand Sheiks) signatures upon it, from the said 21 Temples. He also claimed to possess Prophet Noble Drew Ali’s last will and testament, Ira Johnson-Bey told them that “BROTHER KIRKMAN BEY MUST BE BROUGHT IN” and “I WANT YOU SHEIKS TO GO AFTER HIM AND YOU BETTER ARM YOURSELVES, AND IN CASE HE REFUSES TO COME VOLUNTARILY YOU CAN USE FORCE”, and “BRING BACK KIRKMAN, DEAD OR ALIVE, AND BY ALL MEANS GET THE CERTIFICATE!” They went to Charles Kirkman-Bey’s’ house (442 W. Elm Street), and took him right in front of his wife in broad daylight, and forced him into a waiting taxicab, then they took him back to Ira Johnson-Bey at 4137 South Parkway (home of Compton Johnson-Bey), some of these men were D. Francis Jackson-Bey, Mose Jackson-Bey, Eugene Jackson-Bey (Father) and J. Stevenson-Bey (who was killed by Sgt. Frank Reynolds). It was Mose Jackson-Bey, Eugene Jackson-Bey (Father) that actually took Charles Kirkman-Bey physically out of his home. A member at 3140 Indiana Ave. told the police about Mose Jackson-Bey’s, involvement, and they went to his house at 1297 Townsend St., from there Mose Jackson-Bey led the police to where Charles Kirkman-Bey was being held. The police arrived around 11:00 AM to rescue Bro. Charles Kirkman-Bey. It was Sgt, O’Toole that finally found Charles Kirkman-Bey who yelled out “DONT SHOOT, I AM THE MAN YOUR LOOKING FOR, PLEASE SAVE ME!”

Ira Johnson-Bey

Nevertheless, Ira Johnson-Bey was finally arrested after a shoot out with the Police. Over 1,000 police officers surrounded the home. Ira Johnson-Bey refused to release Charles Kirkman-Bey and when police tried to break in and rescue him, a shoot-out ensued. Subsequently, approximately 64 members were arrested, especially leaders, including Supreme Grand Sheik Edward Mealy-El. It was reported over 100 bullets were fired least three dead (one being a follower of Ira Johnson-Bey). Ira Johnson-Bey was charged with murdering a police officer (William Gallagher) and the other police officer’s (Jesse D. Hults) killer is unknown. “Ira Johnson-Bey refused to testify on the stand. ‘I’ll do my talking at the right time,’” Later while in prison, he started calling himself “Allah-El,” and gained a small following from there. Adept John Given-El stayed in contact with him until he passed form on December 5th, 1949.
In 1929, Sis. Mary Drew-Ali (the Prophets’ second wife) began writing letters to the members,

In 1929, Sis. Mary Drew-Ali (the Prophets’ second wife) began writing letters to the members, hoping to bring everything back together as it was under the Prophet. In one of the letters she wrote that “Our Grand Sheik is in the Lion’s Den, and the Demons are everywhere, trying to tear down the Movement!” the Grand Sheik she was referring to at that moment was Supreme Grand Sheik Edward Mealy-El, who had not been released from jail just yet and the ‘Demons’? All of the TRAITORS now being led by Charles Kirkman-Bey and his rebels (later known as, the “MSTA, INC.”). By 1934, Mary Drew-Ali feeling nothing was left to do to fight the Demons (as she referred to them as), under her fathers’ (Bro. Foreman-Bey) direct request Mary Drew-Ali gave in to the Charles Kirkman and his MSTA INC. group gave them all of her official paperwork. This gave Charles Kirkman-Bey even more determination.

Colonel: C. Kirkman Bey with that marked Fez. He tried to take over the MSTofA, and undermine SGS: Edward Mealy El (The Prophet’s Choice) multiple times. Kirkman Bey lost every time he took E. Mealy El to court. Consequently, he created his own “MSTofA, Inc.” (aka “The Inc.”) with a Supreme Grand Advisor & Moderator; instead of Grand Sheik & chairman, as The Prophet set up in Act 1, DC&BL.

Kirkman Bey was never made a Sheik by The Prophet either, he was a Shriner, but we don’t know what other Sheiks and Adepts may have taught him after The Prophet changed form. One’s like to say that Kirkman Bey was the rightful successor after E. Mealy El passed form, however, on September 26th, 1930, Supreme Grand Sheik Edward Mealy-El sent Charles Kirkman-Bey an official Temple letter and to other Temples, that the credentials of those listed (below) were REVOKED;

1. Charles Kirkman-Bey
2. M. Dove-El
3. T.W. Owsley-Bey
4. F. Nelson-Bey
5. E. Menter-Bey
6. M. Cliff-Bey
7. C. Childs-Bey
8. H. Glover-El
9. C. Smith-Bey
10. H. Dove-El
11. J. Traylor-Bey
12. J. Williams-Bey
13. W. Smith-Bey
14. G. Cook-Bey
15. I. Cook-Bey
16. M.I. Washington-Bey and etc…

Therefore, between 1930-1934, Charles Kirkman-Bey tried to usurp Supreme Grand Sheik Edward Mealy-El. In 1934, he set up his M.S.T.A. Inc. under new set of Rules and Regulation. He held this office from 1934 until 1959, when he passed away. Later (after 1930), once the Charles Kirkman-Bey fraction began to strengthen itself, there were (3) three petitions filed to the courts against Supreme Grand Sheik Edward Mealy-El’s M.H.T.S. / M.S.T.A. leadership;

1. FEB. 13th, 1931, by J. Jones-Bey
2. FEB. 23rd, 1932, by Charles Kirkman-Bey
3. 1933, by S. Lovett-Bey and T. Crumbey-Bey, this was vacated on Nov. 22, 1933.

All of these petitions were to remove Supreme Grand Sheik Edward Mealy-El, and place Supreme Grand Advisor and Moderator Charles Kirkman-Bey at the head of the Moorish Movement. ALL OF THEM FAILED!

J. Shelby-El (of TEMPLE NO. 1) even tried to get the LEADERSHIP of TEMPLE NO. 1 from Supreme Grand Sheik Edward Mealy-El on JAN. 22, 1935 by filing with the courts an injunction against Supreme Grand Sheik Edward Mealy-El, and he failed, but he took some members with him, that started their own temple group. Attached to the injunction was a resolution against not just Supreme Grand Sheik Edward Mealy-El, but Jackson-Bey, Kirkman-Bey, Foreman-Bey, Crumby-Bey and Lovett-Bey calling for their disbandment and reorganization under “his” leadership. The Resolution
went on to state:

That the Moors had wandered away from the Prophet’s Movement and had begun teaching military training (Mufti Force) and other innovations; establishing insurance where stock were sold; added such offices as Supreme Grand Advisor and Moderator, Grand Recording Secretary and other offices not originally created by the Prophet; ceased to hold monthly meetings of the Adept Chambers, where an accounting of money taken in from the various taxes, sales of stocks, supplies, etc. Even the “The aforementioned Moors have wandered away from the rules and usages of the Moorish Science Temple of America, Inc. The dates of the National Convention was changed from October 15th thru 20th to September 15th thru 20th of each year.” The resolution concluded by naming, “J. Shebly-El as Governor; N.Gores-Bey as Grand Sheik; C. Highbough-Bey as Assistant Grand Sheik and W. Cobb-Bey as Chairman of the Moorish Science Temple of America – Grand Temple #1.This would create a fourth fraction/group of the Moorish Movement. Following Sheik J. Shebly-El would be Sheik C. Highbought-Bey, followed by Sheik L. Barnes-El. Headquarters would be established at 4333 Calumet St., Chicago, Ill).

Even so, by this time, the only thing that Supreme Grand Sheik Edward Mealy-El had left was temple #1, and his legal possessions (Moorish documents), which everyone was still after. In late 1935, Supreme Grand Sheik Edward Mealy-El died on a business trip, and his wife Sis. Delia-El received his possessions. Even so, to dishonor and belittle the late Supreme Grand Sheik Edward Mealy-El, the Moorish Science Temple of America, Inc. under former Supreme Grand Advisor and Moderator Charles Kirkman-Bey started saying he died in a mental institution (read, “THE CONTROVERSIAL YEARS OF THE MOORISH SCIENCE TEMPLE OF AMERICA” by Chief Minister Dr. Ra Saadi El).

Here is a letter typed from Supreme Grand Sheik Edward Mealy-El to Charles Kirkman-Bey dated Sept.
26th, 1930.

Bro. C. Kirkman Bey, this is to notify you, that the above named organization, MOORISH SCIENCE TEMPLE OF AMERICA, in convention, Sept.15th to 20th, rescinded by voting out the mistake made by the second Annual Convention, of 1929. And in so doing, you hold your membership roll, as when our Prophet was here, and we hope you will cooperate with the organization under the five
principles. We hope further, that you will comply with this notice, and govern yourself accordingly.

As there is but one Supreme Grand Advisor, in THE MOORISH SCIENCE TEMPLE OF AMERICA, that being NOBLE DREW ALI. And any one else attempting to be, from now on, is assuming authority of himself, and is liable to the Penalties of the LAW.

PEACE.

MOORISH SCIENCE

NOBLE DREW ALI, FOUNDER.
E. MEALY EL. Chairman.

FOSTERS HALL, 44th, & STATE ST. CHICAGO, ILL ​

To the left is the actual court document of the verdict in favor of Supreme Grand Sheik Edward Mealy-El by Judge Eberhart on May 7, 1931, case number 1746990 against Charles Kirkman-Bey and his Moorish Science Temple of America, Inc. Here is a letter from May 12, 1931 verifying the judgment.
(20) Twenty days later after winning the court case (see above) Supreme Grand Sheik writes MAY 27th, 1931 Moorish Science Temple of America NOBLE DREW ALI, Founder Home Office: 3718 Prairie Ave. — Tel. Douglas 2725 Send all official Business to the Home Office in 5 Chicago, Ill. 5 / 27 / 1931
Care of E. MEALY EL, S.G.S. ISLAM

Many were there when the decision was handed down. Now they claim the Judge has never passed his decision. There is no cause for them to be like that, only they don’t want to be governed by the Truth now, since the Prophet passed, and that is the only hope of our security.

One great hindrance to my people is, they don’t understand the Words of Truth, Peace & Love as set before them by the Great PROPHET, He said so when he was here. And told them if they Understood Language, they would be alright. I am sorry for them, because not knowing, they blame me for all that has happen.

Yet when the Prophet was here, He told them, He Brought The divine Plans of the Ages. And they can’t be Changed. And the Plans are called the plans of Redemption. And was brought only by A REDEEMER. And this REDEEMER, called Me, Ordained Me, Commissioned Me, and Then Appointed Me to My Station, And Instructed Me That I was There to stay, At His absence. And that all wanted that place, But said, I know who I want there. I know who I want to handle My Money. He further said, You are to collect all money, and Pay off all bills, He still said. And you will have to do what I Am doing,. You will have to go around to all Temples, and report Back to Me.

Time and space won’t permit me to say all you want to know, or what I would like to tell you. But I say as I have, to give you who Don’t know, or have not had the chance to know the Prophet, or be With Him as I was, I had and Have a reason for Everything I did Or have done. And can and will prove my Authority. By His HOLY KORAN AND CONSTITUTION, AND HIS GENERAL AND BY-LAWS. But the idea is this, THE PLANS ARE DIVINE, and we are going through a crisis and conflict, that must be, before we can be redeemed. I hope I have made my self clear. If I haven’t write me. I love all I haven’t a pet any place. No special favors for any; considerate with any; under the five great principles.

LOVE, TRUTH, PEACE FREEDOM, AND JUSTICE.

I hope to hear from all soon. And if we expect to meet the prince of Peace, in peace and with joy to our souls, we had better begin to think, talk, walk and act different. He was made in secret, in the public, He was unmade. Get a program of 1929’s convention. If you haven’t one, send for one; read, think, and you will (find/figure) out that the programs are printed before the convention convienes. Now trust in ALLAH through his PROPHET, and live on. follow anyone else and perish.

Peace. Love to all; E. Mealy El S.G.S.

Bro. Edward Mealy-El stated that the Holy prophet told him “YOU DO WHAT I TELL YOU, NEVER MIND WHAT THEY SAY, I HAVE GIVEN YOU LAW, KORAN, AND CONSTITUTION, AND I EXPECT YOU TO ENFORCE MY LAW, AND DO WHAT I SAY, NEVER MIND WHAT THEY SAY OR DO. THEY CAN DO NOTHING BUT DIE!” Dealia Mealy-El, the wife of Supreme Grand Sheik, Edward Mealy-El tried to use Supreme Grand Sheik, Edward Mealy-El’s paperwork (Supreme Grand Sheik Edward Mealey-El’s possessed the original Moorish Seals, original Koran Questions, Adept book, early convention minutes, Rules and Regulations and corporate files for the years 1928 to 1933) to introduce William Morris-El (her lover) in 1935, as Supreme Grand Sheik, Edward Mealy-El’s successor, but this failed, as William Morris-El was rejected by the remaining members of TEMPLE NO. 1. over time. Sis. Dealia would refuse to turn these items over to Kirkman-Bey. However, later on several member took what was left of the lawful temple paperwork (the original “Articles of Incorporation) and gave it to Charles Kirkman-Bey’s group, the “MSTA, INC.”, thus solidifying his / their position even more.

There were some more distrubing things in which occurred after Prophet Noble Drew Ali passed form, but before the 2nd Moorish Science Temple of America Annual National Convention that caused further splits. Sheik Adept John Givens-El publicly announced that he was the “Re-incarnate” Prophet Noble Drew Ali (August 7, 1929), at a meeting held at Pythian Hall, 3737 South State Street in Chicago. Three weeks later on September 19th, 1929, during the 2nd Annual National Convention of the Moorish Science Temple of America, Givens-El would once again make his declaration of reincarnation. The Moorish convention was entering its final hours, lengthy discussions had been held concerning the Prophet’s last instructions. It was around this time that Givens-El entered the convention hall, walking straight to the platform, he seated himself in the “Vacant Chair” and declared, “I am back.” He then said, “I am Prophet Noble Drew Ali, Reincarnated and Prophet Noble Drew Ali, the Founder. We two are one in the same.” A silence fell over the convention hall. However, when a vote was finally taken, two-thirds of the delegates voted Charles Kirkman-Bey, the Supreme Grand Advisor and Moderator (Assistant) to the Edward Mealy-El, Supreme Grand Sheik and official head of the Moorish Movement. Nevertheless, by the end of September, a number of subordinate temples would begin to follow Givens-El, “the Reincarnated Prophet.” This faction developed into the Reincarnated (Moorish Holy Temple of Science) Moorish Science Temple of America, later Moorish Science Temple, The Divine and National Movement of North America, Inc.

In a letter to his followers in 1933, Sheik J. Givens-El, would write:

447 E. 40th Street Chicago, Illinois
August 19,1933

Islam:

Moorish Science Temple of America; Instructions from the Prophet Noble Drew Ali, Reincarnated

I want you all to know that I Noble Drew All your Prophet is still in Chicago. I live at 447 E. 40th Street, now three years. This message is from Prophet Noble Drew Ali, Reincarnated. All that believes this message that I am sending by Brother Rossen-El will be blessed by Allah. I just want you all to know that I mean to carry out my mission. Any information that you want to know just write to 447 E. 40th Street to your Prophet Noble Drew AIi It is my duty to let you all know that I am here.

I will say peace, [SIGNED]

Prophet Noble Drew Ali, Reincarnated

In response to this letter, C. Kirkman-Bey filed a series of affidavits and injunctions against John Givens-El in the Cook County Court to stop all activities of the rival fraction. Nevertheless, Givens-El continued to teach from his home and through the mail for more than 15 years. It is reported that when he was preparing to die he directed his followers to a brother known as “Allah-El”. It is taught among his followers that Allah-El aka Ira Johnson-Bey.

John Givens-El (born George Givens) was a native of Sumpter, South Carolina. He was born December 6, 1904. Upon coming of age Givens El travelled west, finally settling in Chicago, IL, May 14, 1925. Shortly thereafter he embraced the teachings of Noble Drew Ali and joined and became a member of Chicago’s subordinate temple #1 in 1926. After a brief period in the temple, he was initiated into its Adept Chambers. He also became the chauffer-mechanic for the Prophet Noble Drew Ali. It was reported that one day while working on the Prophet’s automobile, shortly after his death, Givens-El fainted. When his eyes were examined: “He had the sign of the star and crescent in one eye and the circle seven in the other…right then, they knew that the Prophet had reincarnated into his chauffeur” (Excerpt from “MUQARRABEEN FILES VOL 1” by Brother R. Edwards-El, A.S.D.M., Author Brother J. Barnes-Bey, Co-Author).

Another strange event occurred a month before the death of Prophet Noble Drew Ali. Prophet Noble Drew Ali, while out on bail waiting indictment, he appoints David Ford-El acting “Supreme Grand Chairman” of Moorish Science Temple of America (some say it was merely over Temple #1 Chicago). But, if it was just over temple #1, normally, when the Prophet went on tour to visit subordinate Temples, he left, Supreme Grand Sheik Edward Mealy-El in charge. Where was Supreme Grand Sheik Edward Mealy-El? Obviously, Edward Mealy-El was not around during that time period and Prophet Noble Drew Ali had to appoint someone he knew and trusted. Prophet Noble Drew Ali stated, “If you want European Grand Sheiks, I can give them to you.” From one of brother’s H. Bey educational pamphlets. –> “Keep in mind that European freemasonry was a secret operation of the Moorish Masters whose purpose was to make a group of Europeans custodians, and keepers for a time of Moorish Science, Codes and Ciphers until now, the time of our resurrection. Even so, David Ford-El claimed Drew Ali had left him in charge, and declared himself the reincarnation of Noble Drew Ali. Arguments erupted over the issue of the proper successor. Those who had been loyal to Claude D. Greene-Bey argued that David Ford-El had not been with the MSTA long enough to succeed Drew Ali, and insisted that Charles Kirkman-Bey, former school mate of Prophet Noble Drew Ali, but one of Greene’s closest allies, wanted to assume the leadership. Another faction, headed by Ira Johnson-Bey, claimed that Kirkman-Bey was unfit. The MSTA remained a “house divided.” Thousands of members swore their allegiance to David Ford-El (Fard), but the majority rejected him and decided to be loyal to Charles Kirkman-Bey. The inner violence, the arrests of several prominent members, and the boiling scandal that followed prompted David Ford-El (Fard) to break away from MSTA. Fearful for his own safety, David Ford-El (Master Fard Muhammad etc…) moved to Detroit, Michigan (see below). Note: On October 15th, 1925 the “First Temple” in Chicago was established at 3603 Indiana Avenue, and was a new beginning for the Moorish Divine Movement as a whole. this first Temple was honorarily called the “Temple of Islam” by the original members. In 1930, Fard named his group of followers the “Temple of Islam,” or “ALLAH’s Temple of Islam” which later became the“Lost-Found Nation of Islam in the Wilderness of the North America.” The below information demonstrates the prior connection between Timothy Drew (Prophet Noble Drew Ali) and David Ford-El (Master Fard Muhammad etc… some state that this “Ford” was Rabbi Arnold Josiah Ford [see below]).

NOTE: THE NAME FORD IS MENTIONED TWICE IN THE 2ND PARAGRAPH. “MOORISH LITERATURE: THE
INDUSTRIOUS ACTS OF THE MOSLEMS” BY PROPHET NOBLE DREW ALI / PROFESSOR DREW, THE EGYPTIAN ADEPT WRTIES, “THE PRIMITIVE COLORS ALONE WERE USED, SAYS FORD, BY THE EGYPTIANS, GREEKS, AND ARABS…FORD IS INCLINED TO GIVE THEM GREAT ANTIQUITY… IN “THE ORIGINS OF THE NATION OF ISLAM (THE FARRAKHAN CONTROVERSY-PART IV)” BY SERGEANT SAM SMITH, “FARD TOLD HIS HOST TALES OF GREAT AFRICAN AND ASIAN EMPIRES.”

AS PREVIOUSLY MENTIONED, It has also been speculated that Noble Drew Ali was referring to Rabbi Ford of the Moorish Jews… Not Fard Muhammad.., If he was speaking of David Ford… he would have said Ford El?

This Professor Ford, who was part of the (Old) Canaanite Temple 1913. He was also a former member of the Ahmadiyya Muslim sect.
Thus, according to the ‘Lessons’ David Ford-El (W.D. Fard), is said to have come in contact with Noble Drew Ali in his first appearance in 1910.The Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad states, in 1910 Master Fard Muhammad appeared in the United States in New York. After, the death of Prophet Noble Drew Ali at the 1929 Moorish Science Temple of America Annual National Convention. ‘David Ford-El [W.D. Fard] is reported to have said, ‘He would bring America to its knees’ for the death of Noble Drew Ali and the attacks made on the Moorish-Americans by local police in 1929. One month later the stock market crashed and many of the former Moors saw this man as a ‘Prophet’ and followed him to Detroit where the Nation of Islam was born. During this time David Ford-El started referring to himself as the Re-incarnated Prophet Noble Drew Ali. In the beginning stages of the movement he was known as ‘Prophet W.D. Fard.’ The Honorable Elijah Muhammad stated in an interview with Buzz Anderson in 1971 that in 1930, Master Fard Muhammad used the name Wallace D. Fard, often signing it W.D. Fard. Honorable Elijah Muhammad stated that he didn’t know what the “D” stood for. In the third year (1933), he signed His name W.F. Muhammad, which stands for Wallace Fard Muhammad.” Elijah Muhammad said this about his teacher, in his book “MESSAGE TO THE BLACKMAN” “Allah (God) came to us from the Holy City Mecca, Arabia, in 1930. He used the name Wallace D. Fard, often signing it W.D. Fard. In the third year (1933), he signed His name W.F. Muhammad, which stands for Wallace Fard Muhammad. The FBI has photographs and fingerprints of Wallace Dodd Ford on file. The FBI alleged that Ford used 58 aliases during his lifetime. He went by such names as David Ford-El, Wali Farad, Farrad Mohammed, W.D. Fard, and F. Mohammed Ali. However, he is generally known within the Nation of Islam as Master Fard Muhammad. Using the names Wallace D. Fard and Wallace D. Fard Muhammad, he renamed the faction he controlled the Allah’s Temple of Islam converting the Detroit Moorish Science Temple of America formerly under Supreme Grand Governor / Grand Sheik Lomax-Bey and renamed it the Allah’s Temple of Islam (also known as the Temple of the Lost-Found People of Islam; note: “Allah’s Temple of Islam were also another name from the MHTS in 1925). The first Temple of the Allah’s Temple of Islam was situated at 11529 Linwood Ave. Detroit, Michigan. In other words, the NOI was founded as the Allah’s Temple of Islam…1929 that same building was called Moorish Science Temple! Coincidence?!!!

“WASHITAW POST” April 1997 issue “WE ARE NOT AFRO-AMERICANS; WE ARE THE WASHITAW”

(Note: According to the “WASHITAW POST” April 1997 issue “WE
ARE NOT AFRO-AMERICANS; WE ARE THE WASHITAW” photo from Her Highness Empress Verdiacee ‘Tiari’ Washitaw (Washington) Tunica (Turner) Goston El-Bey collection, shows W.D. Fard, Timothy Drew and Corrella Drew all seating together as children. Hence, Timothy Drew later known as Holy Prophet Noble Drew Ali did know Wallace D. Ford later known as David Ford-El (Master Fard Muhammad) and this would account for Prophet Noble Drew Ali trust factor of David Ford-El (Wali[d] Abdul Farrad Muhammad Ali as he was known in 1916-1918 or so, was heavily influenced by the Ahmadiyya Islamic group. Therefore, this would account for the forgiveness of the split that took place in 1916. By 1928, in “THE INDUSTRIOUS ACTS OF THE MOSLEMS” Prophet Noble Drew Ali, receives the teaches of ‘Ford’ and in the “MOORISH LEADER’S HISTORICAL MESSAGE TO AMERICA,” Prophet Noble Drew Ali goes into the connection between the Moorish Science Temple of America and (said) the Mohammadean religion. So, it was not watered down, it was in increments or degrees. The following are excerpts…

“In connection with the aims, objects, rules and regulations of the Moorish Science Temple of America. I deem It proper to submit to you a brief statement of our organization, covering Its inception, rise and progress and of the Mohammedan religion, which I hope will be satisfactory to you and be the means of causing you at all times to adhere to the principles of Love, Truth, Peace, Freedom, and Justice in your relations with mankind in general… Inspired by the lofty teachings of the Koran, we have it as the revealed word of God Allah. We shall foster the principles of its teachings among our members. This is our religious privilege as American citizens, under the laws of one of the greatest documents of all time—the American Constitution. The Mohammedan religion is the least appreciated and probably the most misunderstood of the world’s great religions. This is especially true in our western world. Try to understand what Mohammedanism stands for, and some of the things it has contributed to the world. Mohammed was the founder of the Mohammedan religion. It originated thirteen centuries ago on Arabian Peninsula…Today this religion is acknowledged by nearly two hundred and fifty million souls and extends over an area equal to one-third of the globe. From Arabia it spread eastward over Persia, Turkestan, Afghanistan, westward across Syria, Asia Minor, Turkey, southward to Africa, covering more than half of that continent. It found its way to India, and beyond, to the Islands of Sumatra. Java, and Borneo. To the early representatives of this faith the world’s debt is incalculably great. For it was they who transmitted the treasures of Greek literature from the middle ages to the Renaissance; they who originated the graceful forms of which the Tajmahal and the Alham-bra are the most famous examples. It was they who contributed to the sciences of algebra and chemistry, astronomy, and medicine; they who dotted the Sarcen Empire with universities and who built at Bagdad and Cairo the most renowned universities of the world. During those centuries of ecclesiastical despotism when the Christian church suppressed all intellectual activities save those that were theological, causing the talent that reproduces to supplant the genius that creates. Mohammedans did all in their power to encourage and stimulate research in every branch of human inquiry. The Moors or Mohammedans added to the beauty and grandeur of Spain. For centuries art, science, literature, and chivalry flourished among them, while the rest of Europe was still sunk in the gloom of the Dark Ages. The Moors were the most ingenious and industrious of the subjects of Spain. Their expulsion from Spain in 1610, was one of the chief causes of decadence of that country, for both agriculture and industry fell into decay after their departure. Mohammedanism makes no distinction between high and low, rich and poor; it is like the sky, it has room for all. The Koran should be of interest to all readers. It is the Bible of the Mohammedans, ruling over the customs and actions of over 200 millions of people. It is a work of importance whether considered from a religious philosophical, or literary viewpoint… The Moorish Science Temple of America has received some opposition and criticism. In the main the opposition has come from certain Christian ministers. They have expressed themselves as being opposed to our propagation of the Mohammedan religion. Possibly because the promotion of the Mohammedan faith among our people in the United States is considered by them in terms as something new. Whatever the reasons may be for their opposition, the legal right to oppose citizens, individuals and organizations alike for their religious belief does not exist in the United States. The door of religious freedom made by the American Constitution swings open to all, and people may enter through it and worship as they desire. Without religious freedom, no search for truth would be possible; without religious freedom, no discovery of truth would be useful; without religious freedom, religious progress would be checked and we would no longer march forward toward the nobler life which the future holds for the races of men; without religious freedom, there would be no inspiration to lift our heads and gaze with fearlessness into the vast beyond, seeking a hope eternal…

NOBLE DREW ALI, The Moorish Guide Oct-26-1928

So, Prophet Noble Drew Ali told the Moorish Americans, “The Koran should be of interest to all readers. It is the Bible of the Mohammedans, ruling over the customs and actions of over 200 millions of people.”
DAVID FORD-EL aka MASTER FARD MUHAMMAD (PROPHET FARD MOHAMMED etc…)

This article was taken from “THE UNIVERSAL TRUTH” Vol 2, No. 3, Editor: Prince A. Cuba
There is even an account (complete with transcript) of a supposed encounter between Fard and Albert Einstein at a Detroit radio station in 1932.

Note: This information is taken from “THE MESSAGE TO THE BLACK MAN” written by Honorable Elijah Muhammad. Please notice that Honorable Elijah Muhammad stated in the last sentence shown…”He was persecuted, sent to jail in 1932…ordered out of Detroit, on May 26, 1933. Now look at the dates in the article above. They correlates perfectly with this quote.

MASTER FARD MUHAMMAD AND WALLACE DAVID FORD IS THE SAME PERSON. NOTE: THE SAME HAIRLINE, JAWLINE, EARS AND ETC…Today, the Nation of Islam reject the notion that Wallace Dodd Ford and W.F. Fard is the same person.

Note: Both photos depicts a mole on the lower front left cheek (see Anton Batey)

Below is Wallie Dodd Ford’s California State Certificate of Marriage. A marriage certificate dated June 5, 1924, was issued to Wallie Dodd Ford and Carmen Frevino (or Trevino) in Orange County, California. Ford reported he was a cook, age 26, born in Oregon, but living in Los Angeles. Wallie D. Ford of California, arrested by Los Angeles police on November 17, 1918, on a charge of assault with a deadly weapon; by the Los Angeles police January 20, 1926, for violation of the California Wolverine Possession Act; and by the Los Angeles police February 15, 1926, for violation of the State Poison Act, for which he was sentenced to six months to six years at San Quentin Penitentiary on June 12, 1926. According to San Quentin records, Wallie D. Ford was born in Portland, Oregon, on February 25, 1891, and was the white son of Zared Ford and Beatrice Ford, who were both born in Hawaii. (Note: Wallace D. Fard claimed that he was born in February 26, 1877 in the Holy city Mecca. In Sanskrit Walis means “holy man, prophet” and of course this date is allegorical, as it is reference to the so-called white [pale] Shriner’s … At the February 6, 1877 meeting of the Imperial Grand Council in Albany, members made appointments bringing to 30 the Council membership. The Council also voted to present each new Noble with certificate, specified official jewels and costumes for the respective offices, and required each new temple to select an ancient Arabic or Egyptian name. In 1877, charters were granted to Oriental Temple at Troy, NY, to Al Koran Temple in Cleveland, to Syrian Temple in Cincinnati, and to Cyprus Temple in Albany). Now, if Wallie Dodd Ford is not Master Fard Muhammad then how does this marriage certificate shows the mother of “Wallie Dodd Ford” is Babbjie [Baby G.] the same mother’s name of Master Fard Muhammad told to us by Honorable Elijah Muhammad)?

Note: Hazel Barton-Ford in the above picture

According to “THE BIOGRAPHY OF NOBLE DREW ALI; EXHUMING OF A NATION” by Elihu N. Pleasant-Bey, in the upper left-hand corner is Farrad Mohamet-El of Detroit, Michigan Temple #4 aka David Ford-El. This is also confirmed in “REPARATIONS = WAR WHAT WILL FREE AND UNITE BLACK PEOPLE?” by Dr. Ali Muhammad, former member of the (NOI) Nation of Islam states, Master Fard Muhammad under the alias David Ford-El pictured in the upper left-hand corner… However, the above picture gives you the dates October 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20 of 1928. On January 20, 1926, Fard was arrested for violating the California Prohibition law and a month later on February 15, 1926 for violation of the State Poison Act. He was sentenced to six months to six years at San Quentin Penitentiary on June 12, 1926 for ‘allegedly’ selling narcotics in his restaurant. Presumingly, he had served three years in San Quentin before gaining release on May 27, 1929. (See Dr. Wesley Muhammad, “MASTER FARD MUHAMMAD, WHO IS HE, WHO IS HE NOT”, pg. 39). However, based on the above picture this ‘may’ have happen several (at least 7) months earlier or maybe, it is just a case of look-a-like? (Note:The FBI Case No.56062, Matches The Fingerprints Of The Person Known As W.F. Mohammad. The Federal Bureau Of Investigation, United States Department Of Justice has this In Chicago Illinois, On February 9, 1943 A.D. And Ford was arrested by the Detroit Police Department On 5/26/33, With Case No. 45138).

NOTE: THE SAME LIPS, EARS, NOSE AND ETC…MOORS FOR YEARS HAVE STATED THAT THIS IS DAVID FORD-EL, THE SAME ONE CALLED MASTER FARD MUHAMMAD ETC… ELIJAH MUHAMMAD TAUGHT THAT WE CELEBRATE SAVIOUR’S DAY IN THE MONTH OF FEBRUARY TO COMMEMORATE THE BIRTH OF OUR SAVIOR, MASTER FARD MUHAMMAD. HE TAUGHT US THAT MASTER FARD MUHAMMAD WAS BORN ON FEBRUARY 26, 1877 IN MECCA, ARABIA. FEBRUARY 26, 1877 WAS THE BIRTH OF THE ANCIENT ARABIC ORDER OF THE NOBLES OF THE MYSTIC SHRINE AND IT’S INCORPORATION IN THE WEST BY WALTER FLEMING AND WILLIAM FLORENCE http://www.bucklesunlimited.com/images/Found.gif …SYMBOLIZING THAT MASTER FARD MUHAMMAD BROUGHT THEM INTO THE SHRINE OF ISLAM. ELIJAH MUHAMMAD TAUGHT THAT THE SCIENTISTS DISAGREED WITH MASTER FARD MUHAMMAD WANTING TO SAVE THE DUMB NEGRO FROM ALLAH’S WRATH. HOWEVER, HE WAS REALLY REFERRING TO THE SHRINERS WHO DID NOT WANT MFM TO BRING US INTO THE SHRINE BECAUSE THEY BELIEVED WE WERE UNWORTHY TO JOIN THEIR MASONIC LODGE. IF YOU STUDY THE SHRINERS, YOU FIND THAT THEIR LODGES ARE NUMBERED JUST LIKE ELIJAH MUHAMMAD’S MOSQUES. YOU HAVE MOSQUE #2, #12 #7 ETC. THE NOI ALSO HAS LESSONS IN THE FORM OF QUESTIONS, AND THE SHRINERS HAVE THE SAME. DAVID FORD-EL (MASTER FARD MUHAMMAD) WAS A MASONIC-SHRINER AND POSSIBLY A THEOSOPHY (ROSICRUCIAN) MEMBER.

SOME MAKE CLAIMS THAT THE PERSON ON THE LEFT IS ATTORNEY AARON PAYNE-EL, HOWEVER, LOOK AT THE PIC OF ATTORNEY AARON PAYNE-EL IN THE NEWSPAPER ABOVE (TO RIGHT) AND YOU WILL NOTICE THAT HIS NOSTRILS FLARE OUT AND HE DOES NOT HAVE THE SAME NOSE AS THE MEN ABOVE.
Wallace (Warith Deen) Muhammad

The Messenger’s son, Wallace (Warith Deen) Muhammad, who took over the NOI (Nation of Islam) in 1975, said in several speeches that he was in communication with the founder, saying, “Master Fard
Muhammad is not dead, brothers
and sisters, he is physically alive and I talk with him whenever I get ready. I don’t talk to him in any spooky way. I go to the telephone and dial his number.”

Nevertheless, Warith Deen Muhammad claimed that Fard had returned to the United States under the name Muhammad Abdullah. In 1976, W.D. had appointed Muhammad Abdullah as Imam of Muhammad’s Mosque #77 in Oakland, California. The November 26, 1976, issue of the NOI journal Bilalian News reports Muhammad Abdullah’s first khutbah at the mosque and shows a photo. [“BILALIAN NEWS,” Nov 26, 1976, pdf] W.D. Mohammad did not state that Muhammad Abdullah was Fard until after Abdullah’s death in 1992, and Abdullah himself never publicly claimed to be Fard. Muhammad Abdullah himself denied that he was Fard, saying “It is all right to say I am Fard Muhammad for Wallace (Warith) D. Muhammad. I taught him some lessons. But I am not the same person who taught Elijah Muhammad and I am not God.” However, in 1981, a Pakistani scholar Z.I. Alsari researched Fard’s life and claimed that Fard was identical with Muhammad Abdullah, a Pakistani Ahmadiyya Muslim who had been an advisor of Elijah Muhammad’s since the late 1950s and who was the tutor of his son and eventual successor Warith Deen Muhammad. In 1991, there was a report in an orthodox Muslim newspaper that carried a story that Fard was alive and living in California and worshipped as an orthodox Muslim. W.D. Mohammad did not state that Muhammad Abdullah was Fard until after Abdullah’s death in 1992, and Abdullah himself never publicly claimed to be Fard. Nevertheless, in Fayetteville, North Carolina during the summer of 2006, Bro. Michael Wortham aka Michael El Babasuut Onkiba Bey video taped Bilal Muhammad, who was in his early 70’s at the time, who told us that he knew Master Fard Muhammad personally and that he worked with Fard in his restaurant in Oakland, California during the late 1960s. He was taught and trained by Master Fard Muhammad. Therefore, we know for sure where Master Fard Muhammad was after leaving in 1933. Bro Yasin Fahim stated, “Believe it or not but Fard Muhammad granddaughter lives in my city and is married to one of the brothers. She has pictures of him before the Moorish movement, the noi, and during those movements and after. She even has letters he wrote to his parents from prison while his parents lived in Oregon. She even has pictures of him while he acted as the Imam of one of Warith Deen Muhammad mosques in California.”

Lance Shabazz personally interviewed Khalilah Camacho Ali, the former wife of Muhammad Ali stated that she “was introduced to him (Professor Muhammad Abdullah) as Master Fard Muhammad!” And that Honorable Elijah Muhammad told her that “he was the Master Fard Muhammad!”

Claude Andrew Clegg III’s “AN ORIGINAL MAN: The Life and Times of Elijah Muhammad” states,
“In Detroit, he joined a variety of organizations-notably, Marcus Garvey’s proto-black-nationalist
movement, the United Negro Improvement Association (UNIA), and the Black Shriners; but neither of these kept his allegiance. In a further effort to improve himself, Poole also joined the Moorish Science Temple of America (MSTA) and converted to its vaguely Islam-like religion, Founded in 1913 by a Black Shriner named Timothy Drew (who renamed himself Noble Drew Ali), the MSTA introduced such Islam-like features as the crescent-and-star motif, the use of Arabic personal names, and the prohibition of pork, but it also foretold the destruction of all whites and promoted Drew as a prophet.”

Bro. Hakim H.Y. Bey told us in January 8th, 2011 at the Prophet Noble Drew Ali Celebration that there is empirical evidence that shows that Robert ‘Elijah’ Pool(e)-Bey (later known as Elijah Muhammad), his wife Clara, and his two brothers, John and Edward were indeed members and Adepts of the Moorish Science Temple of America in Detroit, Michigan under Supreme Grand Governor / Sheik Lomax-Bey (read “NOBLE DREW ALI AND THE MOORISH SCIENCE TEMPLE OF AMERICA: THE MOVEMENT THAT STARTED IT ALL” by Sheik Way-El).

According to “THE MUQARRABEEN FILE BOOK VOL 1.” by Brother R. Edwards-El, A.S.D.M., Author Brother J. Barnes-Bey, Co-Author, it states, “There are alleged documents that claims that Elijah Muhammad was a member of Moorish temple number four in Detroit Michigan where he is listed under the name of “R. (Robert) Pool Bey”, along with a “D. (David) Ford El.” Two years prior to the passing of Warith Deed Muhammad (born Oct. 30, 1933 — died Sept. 9, 2008), he alludes to the fact that Honorable Elijah Muhammad was a member of the M.S.T.A. (Moorish Science Temple of America) in the “MUSLIM JOURNAL” Vol. 31 No. 27, April 7th, 2006.

​ Even Minister Farrakhan somewhat alludes to the intimate connection between the (MSTA) Moorish Science Temple of America and the origin of the (NOI) Nation of Islam… Prophet Noble Drew Ali is placed in the center as the focal person in the SAVIOUR’S DAY 2014 in Detroit, Michigan (Note: Detroit, Michigan is the birth place of the NOI from the MSTA Temple #4).

Therefore, we now know that Minister Farrakhan has been naturalized (nationalized) under the Moorish Science Temple The Divine and National Movement of North America, Inc, Temple #13, called “The Moorish American National Republic” under National Grand Sheik Joel Bratton-Bey. Minister Farrakhan as a naturalized (nationalized) Moor should out-rightly inform the (NOI) Nation of Islam members that he and many of his top members are naturalized (nationalized) as well??? ANSWER: Listen and watch for yourself (BELOW).

Furthermore, Minister Farrakhan demonstrated the intimate connection between the (MSTA) Moorish Science Temple of America and the origin of the (NOI) Nation of Islam… Note: Prophet Noble Drew Ali is placed in the center as the focal person in the SAVIOUR’S DAY 2014 in Detroit, Michigan (Note: Detroit, Michigan is the birth place of the NOI from the MSTA Temple #4).

Bro. Hakim H.Y. Bey told us in January 8th, 2011 at the Prophet Noble Drew Ali Celebration that there is empirical evidence that shows that Robert Pool(e)-Bey (later known as Elijah Muhammad), his wife Clara, and his two brothers, John and Edward were indeed members and Adepts of the Moorish Science Temple of America in Detroit, Michigan under Supreme Grand Governor / Sheik Lomax-Bey (read “NOBLE DREW ALI AND THE MOORISH SCIENCE TEMPLE OF AMERICA: THE MOVEMENT THAT STARTED IT ALL” by Sheik Way-El).

(Robert) Pool Bey”, along with a “D. (David) Ford El.”

Honorable Elijah Muhammad

Note: Honorable Elijah Muhammad’s feet are at a 45 degree angle or the Master Mason stance.
“Islam has been practiced in said secrecy call Higher Masonry, Shriner, that is a small degree of his knowledge of Islam taught in said secrecy by that society”. However, the real secret to Freemasonry, is that there is no secret, it’s about you…Hiram Abiff, the Sun People (Kushites – Melanites), or Children of the Light (Phree Messens) and anyone who is willing to take the time to investigate this subject could get a working knowledge of the order from the first degree (Entered Apprentice) to the thirty-third (Sovereign Grand Inspector General of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry) and / or the Knight Templar of the York Rite Side…Muhammad stated: “I will not go into the history of the Masons since I was a Mason myself once and I swore, too, not reveal the secrets. Masons who have reached such degrees as 32nd and 33rd are not called Masons. They are called Moslem Shriners…When you take the 33rd degree you are taught to greet each other; ‘As- Salaam Alaikum’. You are taught Islam from then on because you become a Muslim when that degree is conferred on you. At least you are supposed to be a believer in Islam. They teach you, almost from the start, to turn your face to the east.” Elijah Muhammad stated” “Only in higher freemasonry is there a little teachings at the top, mostly of this particular order that mentions the teachings of Almighty God Allah, but (you have to pay a lot of money to become a 33’rd degree Mason… A Mason cannot be a good Mason unless he knows the Holy Qur’an and follow its teachings … “Muhammad further states: “You don’t need to join Masonry to be a Muslim. It is free and why would you buy that or spend money for that which brings you know gain? Regardless to how high you go in Masonry, you are still a Negro. And you are not treated as equal to white masons. But if you accept Islam, you are forcing all to recognize you”. “If you come and follow me (Elijah Muhammad), I will give to you the meaning of all those degrees and your ritual…Don’t go and buy anymore Masonry, come and accept free Islam. I’ve been waiting on the Masons to come over and join me for years and now I’m going to tell on you if you don’t. You won’t get anymore members if I start telling the truth as I know it. I know your First Degree to the Thirty Third Degrees. I know exactly what it means but you don’t know what it means. I also have a few more degrees than that.”
MOORISH CIRCLE 7

According to “MOORISH CIRCLE 7:The Rise of The Islamic Faith Among Blacks in America and it’s Masonic Origins” by Keith Moore, 32 states on pgs.122 and 123 After the collapse of the temple, a new organization called the Nation of Islam was formed. The organization was founded by Wallace D. Fard who was a follower of Ali (Noble Drew Ali), though some would later say otherwise. Fard founded the temple of Islam in Detroit, Michigan around 1930. At least one source notes that both he and his protégé, Elijah Muhammad were members of the Moorish Science Temple and exposed to the teachings of Ali (Noble Drew Ali). Originally Muhammad was known as Robert ‘Elijah’ Pool(e) Bey, a Moorish name (*Note: Upon moving from Georgia to Detriot it is said Robert changed the last name from ‘Pool’ to ‘Poole’).

ACCORDING TO SEVERAL MOORISH ELDERS, IN THE PICTURE ON THE LEFT IN THE FAR BACK IS ELIJAH MUHAMMAD AT THE 1ST MOORISH SCIENCE TEMPLE OF AMERICA ANNUAL NATIONAL CONVENTION OF 1928.


Above is ‘allegedly’ Robert ‘Elijah’ Pool(e)-Bey?

In “HOW A WHITE CONFIDENCE MAN BECAME GOD AND SAVIOR TO A BLACK CULT OF RACISTS AND SEPARATISTS: The Farrakhan Controversy Part VII” by Sergeant Sam Smith

Elijah Muhammad was born Robert “Elijah” Pool(e) in Sandersville, Georgia, the seventh of thirteen children to William Poole, Sr. (1868–1942), a Baptist lay preacher and member of the UNIA under Marcus Garvey, and Mariah Hall (1873–1958), a homemaker and sharecropper. Elijah and his family migrated north to Detroit from Georgia in 1923. Elijah moved north to escape the racism of the south. He worked
in several industrial plants and joined a variety of African-American organizations including the Black Shriners. Elijah later incorporated several Masonic Lodge beliefs into the doctrines of the Nation of Islam (NOI). Elijah Poole also joined Marcus Garvey’s “Back to Africa Movement.”He accepted Garvey’s
ideology of black pride, self-help, and race separation; all later became major tenants of the (NOI) Nation of Islam. Elijah Poole rose to the rank of corporal in the Chicago / Detroit division of the UNIA within two years of joining. Poole also became a member of the Timothy Drew Ali’s Moorish Science Temple of America (MSTA). Ironically, Elijah‘s first experience with Islam came at the urging of his father, a Baptist minister, who was already familiar with Black Islam. He urged him to attend lectures of the Moorish Science Temple because he respected the Moors’ doctrines of racial solidarity and black economic development. Elijah attended the meetings at the advice of his father and as a result he left the Baptist church and became a Black Muslim. By 1930, Wallace Muhammad had come to Detroit and formed Allah’s Temple of Islam. He attracted as many as 25,000 members with his proto-Islamic, Afro-centric teachings. But, Muhammad taught dogma that differed greatly from orthodox Islam and added elements from Marcus Garvey’s black nationalist movement (read, “THE RISE AND FALL OF ELIJAH MUHAMMAD” by Karl Evanzz).

Paul Robert ‘Elijah’ Pool(e) (Elijah Muhammad) was no newcomer to so-called black separatist movements. His father had been an organizer for Marcus Garvey’s “Back to Africa” movement, which reached its zenith in the 1920s. Robert ‘Elijah’ Poole traveled to Chicago to hear Garvey speak and was greatly moved by his words. He joined Garvey’s Universal Negro Improvement Association and became a corporal in the Chicago UNIA (ccnmtl.columbia.edu/projects/mmt/mxp/people/753_I.html). Paul Robert ‘Elijah’ Poole joined the Moorish Science Temple of America (MSTA) in 1928, becoming Elijah Poole-Bey. Moreover, as mentioned previously, “according to Hakim H.Y. Bey, his name and several family members names were on the MSTA Detroit Temple #4 enrollment under Supreme Grand Governor / Grand Sheik James Lomax-Bey.” In, “THE RISE AND FALL OF ELIJAH MUHAMMAD” by Karl Evanzz, pg 67-69. “Interestingly, Elijah Muhammad reportedly attended meetings at an MSTA temple in Detroit. Though he consistently denied joining the group founded by Noble Drew Ali (at least publically).” Even so, within a year of the arrival of Fard Muhammad in Detroit 1930, Clara Poole, Elijah Poole and two of his brothers joined Fard’s Nation of Islam. Poole became one Fard’s most trusted and ardent followers and rose swiftly through the ranks to become the Nation of Islam’s chief Lieutenant. He was appointed as a Minister of Islam in early 1934. Elijah Muhammad took control of Temple No. 1, but only after battles with other potential leaders, including his brother. In 1935, as these battles became increasingly fierce, Muhammad left Detroit and settled his family in Chicago. Still facing death threats, Muhammad left his family there and traveled to Milwaukee, Wisconsin, where he founded Temple No. 3, and eventually to Washington, D.C., where he founded Temple No. 4. Following his return to Chicago, Elijah Muhammad was firmly in charge of the Nation of Islam. The organization had retained its membership level during his imprisonment, and its membership increased after his return. From four temples in 1946, the Nation of Islam grew to 15 by 1955. By 1959, there were 50 temples in 22 states. By the time Elijah Muhammad passed form in 1975, there were 75 Temples across America. Also by the 1970s, the Nation of Islam owned bakeries, barber shops, coffee shops, grocery stores, laundromats, a printing plant, retail stores, numerous real estate holdings, and a fleet of tractor trailers, plus farmland in Michigan, Alabama, and Georgia. In 1972 the Nation of Islam took controlling interest in a bank, the Guaranty Bank and Trust Co. Nation of Islam-owned schools expanded until, by 1974, the group had established schools in 47 cities throughout the United States. In 1972, Muhammad told followers that the Nation of Islam had a net worth of $75 million.

According to former National Grand Sheik of the Moorish Science Temple Divine and National Movement of North America, Inc. and author of “THE NEGRO, THE BLACK, THE MOOR!” Clarence Reynolds-El, now known as, Rommani M. Amenu-El, has stated that around 1984 Minister Farrakhan told him personally, that his teacher Honorable Elijah Muhammad was a member of the Moorish Science Temple of America under Prophet Noble Drew Ali. Rommani M. Amenu-El also stated that Bro. Wajid Bey, who is 81 now, told him that he meet Honorable Elijah Muhammad around 1955 and that the Honorable Elijah Muhammad told him face to face that he was a member of the Moorish Science Temple of America under Prophet Noble Drew Ali. Although the Nation of Islam denies any historical connection with the Moorish Science Temple.

“THEOLOGY OF TIME” The Messenger of Allah states, “I have always had a very high opinion of both the late Noble Drew Ali and Marcus Garvey and admired their courage in helping our people (the so-called Negroes) and appreciated their work, both of these men were fine Muslims. The followers of Noble Drew Ali and Marcus Garvey should now follow me and co-operate with us in our work because we are only trying to finish up what those before us had started. In Islam alone we shall find the success we desire, so join on to the Nation now and give us a chance to help all of our people in America… “The Black Muslims learned much from Marcus Garvey and Noble Drew Ali. Like those earlier prophets of black nationalism, they capitalize on the lower-class Black Man’s despair and reservations about the white man, and they have developed black consciousness into a confession of faith.”

Excerpted from a message delivered by Minister Louis Farrakhan on July 27, 2003. It is as follows: “Before Elijah Muhammad, you looked at yourself as a Negro. One of our most wonderful Black organizations was the United Negro Improvement Association, which showed that we still had growing to do. What a wonderful, wonderful teacher Marcus Mosiah Garvey was. The Honorable Elijah Muhammad loved and admired him. Noble Drew Ali is the father of what you call the Moorish Americans or the Moorish Scientists. Noble Drew Ali was admired by the Honorable Elijah Muhammad because he said that Noble Drew Ali gave us a start in the direction toward Islam. The Moorish brothers wore fezzes with the crescent and the tassels swinging freely and they wore the name Bey or El.”

The Allah Temple of Islam, precursor of the modern NOI, was more radical than the Moorish Temple of Science. Many of the males still wore the distinctive red fezzes, and dressed themselves in smart suits. Like Drew Ali, Fard charged believers to have their names changed from their “slave names” to Muslim names and were issued with “identification cards” (2ndphilolog.wordpress.com/nation-of-islam/).
The Nation of Islam and MSTA shared similar beliefs and practices. One tradition, men wearing the
maroon fez, was outlawed by Muhammad in 1935 (“THE RISE AND FALL OF ELIJAH MUHAMMAD” by Karl Evanzz, n. 33, p. 528). ELIJAH MUHAMMAD aka SHEIK ROBERT ‘ELIJAH’ POOL[E] BEY IN HIS OWN WORDS… taken from “THE THEOLOGY OF TIME”…

“We have a group of Muslims called Moorish Americans. They wrote Me a letter not so long ago saying that they were coming over to join up with us. They waited so long that I wrote and asked them to come on. THEY WERE WELCOME BECAUSE I HAVE KNOWN THEM FOR A LONG TIME. In Baltimore they stopped Me from coming into a Temple of theirs. In Newark, New Jersey , they rejected Me twice. They were so afraid and jealous of that which Noble Drew Ali gave them that they thought that MY STRONG TEACHINGS OF GOD AND ISLAM may put some of them out of office. One of their Brothers followed Me out there in Newark and said, ” I just wish I were the Sheik , I would let you teach all night because you were telling us things that we never heard. I know it is the Truth, but our Sheik is so narrow about it that he doesn’t want to hear you say anything. But , that is who we want to say something; the One who knows more than we. ” I said , ” That is the way it should be.”

I went on for another year and I happened to be in Hartford , Connecticut , when I ran up on some other Moorish Americans. One Brother took me to his house for dinner. He was a little more common than the other brother and he could reason along with Truth better. After I had dinner with him , he went around and got some of his brothers and had them come to listen to Me talk and teach Islam. He wanted Me back the next night and he said that he was going to have a greater number of people. So I went back. The group that second night asked Me to come down to the Temple and let their Sheik give Me a chance to talk to the Temple. I went there and the Sheik told Me I could have something to say but make it quick. So I did just as he told Me. I stood up and saw all those red fezes so that was My subject , right away. They all were real happy.

One older brother sat there and cried because he was so happy for Me to interpret the meaning of his fez. This was Wednesday and they invited Me to come back Sunday. I promised them that I would, and I did go back. The Sheik had a brother down at the door to tell Me that he has changed his mind. He said he did’t want Me at his meetings because I taught some strange teachings. “SOME OF THAT EGYPTIAN WISDOM” , AND HIS FOLLOWERS WERE NOT ABLE TO TAKE THAT KIND OF TEACHING NOW. So , I went back home. Finally, two brothers came to the place where I was rooming and told Me that the Sheik had changed his mind again and that I was welcome to come into the Temple Of Islam wherever he is teaching , just like anyone else , but I could not say anything. I went , sat down , and listen to him like any other visitor. When I went back to my room , some of his followers came. They had learned where I was rooming and they came to ask Me if I would come and talk to them at a brother’s house. I said , ” yes ” and I did so. The brothers wanted Me to come back the next night also , so I went back to talk with them again. They began to like Me so well that the chief , hearing that they were listening to Me teach at a brother’s house , sent a warning out against the brother. I stayed around there and listened and the brothers came over. They would not accept his warning. I all but got the house of the brother so full that they could not find standing room because they wanted to hear. One or two of the brothers said, ” If we had a Sheik like Him , we would get some place. ” I listened to him and I knew he was right. They were very nice to Me.
ALLAH told Me to go ahead and teach them whatever they would like that I teach them. I must say that I have a lots of experience among different groups of people, not only trying to teach Islam , but other teachings also. I would go around to see what was going on and I learned a lot about our people in those days. THEY DIDN’T KNOW WHO I WAS. I would tell them that My name was this or My name was that. I carried a little notebook around with Me so that when I reached a city , I would remember what I told them My name was.”

Ugan Ali

Ugan Ali – 1st Secretary of ALLAH’s Temple of Islam (later became the Nation of Islam). The fact that Ugan (Eugene) used the last name (surname) Ali would appear that he too was an affiliate or member of the MSTA. When Master Fard Muhammad and his secretary Ugan Ali first visited Elijah at his home in the fall of 1931, according to the Hon. Elijah Muhammad, “(Fard) said that he was Mahadiah (Mahdi) and that he was Allah who everyone expected to come two thousand years after Christ who was crucified at Jerusalem.” Ugan Ali was arrested after Robert Harris (Kareem) human sacrifice of James Josef Smith on November 21, 1932, claimed that he was ordered to do so by the “Gods of Islam,” by which he is believed to have meant Master Fard Muhammad (who wrote about “sacrificing four devils” in his book, “SECRET RITUALS OF THE LOST-FOUND NATION OF ISLAM” and Ugan Ali (Note: The Fez / Tarbush).

Here sits “The Pope,” who came to New York — the Empire State, and sat under the Royal Crest of the Moors Head, while those who are descendants of Moors, debate as to the impacting validity of the honor of THEIR direct ancestors.” Taj Tarik Bey

There is plenty of more pieces of this puzzle that are needed, but one thing for certain all of our major leaders were part of the occult, whether it was Phree Messen Re (Free Masonry), Shrinerism, Rosicrucian, Theosophy, Sufism or etc…our greatest teachers were involved. The Honorable Elijah Muhammad inherited the leadership from Master Fard Muhammad who was, himself, believed to have succeeded Noble Drew Ali. All of these men held Masonic titles, i.e., noble, honorable and master. As masons, they’d taken vows of secrecy and could not reveal the deeper wisdom to the uninitiated. So they spoke in codes. So deep and multilayered were those codes that few, to this day, have a notion of what they were really teaching.

In the late 1920’s, when there were thousands of Moors in the Moorish Science Temple of America, the Holy Prophet told the Moors “The membership is going to dwindle down to a handful, but keep the doors open, and I will drive the Asiatics in.” The Holy Prophet said, “When I drive the Asiatics in, it’s going to take 10 secretaries, just to write the names down.”

Thus, the original (MSTA) Moorish Science Temple of America died with Prophet Noble Drew Ali, the rightful successor Supreme Grand Sheik Edward Mealy-El allegedly never appointed a successor. His possessions were turned over to his wife Sis. Delia Mealy-El, who attempted to keep the one MSTA left Chicago Temple #1. Edward Mealy-El’s portion later fell because Sis. Delia Mealy-El attempted to put her lover William Morris-El in office, as head of the MSTA Chicago temple #1. Even, Sis. Delia is reported to have said “there is no more MSTA”. All in all, the various factions of the Great Schism are thus disconnected from the original 1928 body (the MSTA-incorporated religious society), and therefore cannot be connected to its head, The Prophet Noble Drew Ali, who is the founder of the MHTS (Moorish Holy Temple of Science), which was later incorporated as the MSTA (Moorish Science Temple of America). This is why the U.S. government allowed Charles Kirkman-Bey to start his own organization called the MSTA Inc. it is not the MSTA or the MHTS, but a copy of them (a religious belief can not be copy written), yet still has many of the same religious laws and tenants. This is the reason that Charles Kirkman-Bey lost in court to Supreme Sheik Edward Mealy-El, as the authentic head of the MSTA, because Charles Kirkman-Bey demonstration (MSTA, Inc.) is not the MSTA, nor is it under “Our Authority” nor the Constitution and By-Laws, nor the Moorish Charter, etc. Therefore, the MSTA, Inc. is a completely separate body all together from the MHTS and its incorporation MSTA. Charles Kirkman-Bey’s group the MSTA, Inc. were still using the MHTS (Moorish Holy Temple of Science) name also in 1934, but later that year or so, began to distant itself from the MHTS civic side (see Prince Ka Saadi El).

Regardless, Charles Kirkman-Bey became the head of what would eventually be the largest group, and which currently claims the name “Moorish Science Temple of America, Inc”. Reportedly the largest faction, as of 1996 MSTA Inc. had over 130 temples. The Reincarnated Temples, led by the Adept John Givens-El, who thereafter called himself “Noble Drew Ali, Reincarnated”. This faction has since reportedly split into seven factions, and as of 1994 were represented over 30 affiliated temples. The third and smallest faction was lead by Bro. Edward Mealy-El, as the Supreme Grand Sheik. This faction is still in existence, but with the fewest adherents out of the three. This group began with a few temples. But throughout the country the Prophet’s temples are reappearing throughout the US and abroad. Their quoted mission is to broadcast the Prophet’s original authority to all 4 corners of the Earth. In addition, are continuing the works of Noble Drew Ali. Temple #1, #7, #16, #21, #23, #24, #25, #33 and other study groups through out America and abroad. They included in the States of Alabama, Maryland, Washington D.C., Virginia, Louisiana, New York, California, Ohio, Missouri. Illinois, Florida, New Jersey, and Wisconsin etc.

There are several problems with the Supreme Grand Sheik lineage, especially, from those who follow Supreme Grand Sheik Edward Mealy-El.

According to Supreme Grand Sheik David Bailey-El, Supreme Grand Sheik Edward Mealy-El’s step-grandson states the lineage as follows:

Bro. E. Mealy-El (Deceased)
Bro. W. Morris-El (Deceased)
Bro. E. Walton-Bey (Deceased)
Bro. W. Harlan-Bey (Deceased)
Bro. O. Lewis-El (Deceased)
Bro. D. Bailey-El (Retired Oct. 1992)
Bro. E. Braswell-Bey (Removed from office on April 10th, 2005 AD. – as per Affidavit #0612218011 filed for record: May 2nd, 2005 AD.)
Bro. D. Bailey-El – Present Supreme Grand Sheik

However, according to Supreme Grand Sheik Emanuel Braswell-Bey, allegedly this is the correct Supreme Grand Sheik lineage…

E Mealy-El was appointed the Supreme Grand Sheik October 17th, 1928 by the Prophet and before E Mealy -El veiled the form, on November 15th, 1934, Brother William Morris-El was appointed Supreme Grand Sheik. Brother William Morris-El was the Supreme Grand Sheik from Nov. 1934 to October 1935. Brother E Walton-Bey was appointed Supreme Grand Sheik from Oct. 1935 to August 1936. Brother W. Harlan-Bey was appointed the Supreme Grand Sheik by the Supreme Grand Council from Aug. 1936 to June 1944. Brother O. Lewis-El was appointed the Supreme Grand Sheik from June 1944 to Nov. 1968. Brother D. Bailey-El was appointed Supreme Grand Sheik from Nov. 1968 to Oct. 1992. Brother P. Davis-El was appointed the Supreme Grand Sheik from Oct. 1992 to Nov. 1997. Brother E. Braswell-Bey was appointed from Nov. 1997 to the present day.

Nevertheless, according to the Supreme Grand Sheik Chief Minister Ra Saadi-Bey of the MSTA – 1928 the proper lineage is as follows:

*Prophet Noble Drew Ali
1st Supreme Grand Sheik Saint E. Mealy-El
2nd Supreme Grand Sheik W. Morris-El
3rd Supreme Grand Sheik P. Davis-El
4th Supreme Grand Sheik (Shaykh) Waleed A. Naeem Bey (Deceased)
5th Supreme Grand Sheik (Shaykh) Ra Saadi El (We recognize the following! Brother R. Jones-Bey – 1934; John Given-El [Reincarnated] Temple – 1934; Bro. E. Braswell-Bey [Original Temple #1 – 1928]; Bro. C. Jackson-Bey – 1975; those formerly under Bro. Barne-El – 1958; Frederick Turner-El – 1934-1974 www.motheriscallingforallmoors.com) (Note: Supreme Grand Sheik (Shaykh) Ra Saadi El’s son Prince Ka Saadi El is also Supreme Grand Sheik of the Moorish Science Temple of America (Allah’s Temple).

Then, we have the position of National Grand Sheik of the MSTA under the leadership of Adept Sheik John Given-El

*Prophet Noble Drew Ali
Adept John Given-El (Moorish Holy Temple of Science later called the Reincarnated Moorish Science Temple of America) (Note: We agree with Supreme Grand Sheik (Shaykh) Ra Saadi El’s statement, “We give much credit to Bro. John Givens El, as he kept to the pure teachings of Islam and under his leadership there was many Moorish Business established such as Moorish cafeteria, Moorish schools, Moorish grocery stores, Moorish shoe shops and many other Moorish business his Moorish community was a tight nit group.”

1. Grand Sheik Hommett Anderson-El, the Moderater / Teacher of the Moorish Holy Temple of Science, Inc.
2. & 3. The Dingle-El Brothers (Grand Sheik Richardson Dingle-El continued the Reincarnated Moorish Science Temple of America and even started calling himself the “Reincarnated Prophet” and his brother Grand Sheik Timothy Dingle-El formed the Resurrection Moorish Science Temple of America Inc.).
Richardson Dingle-El
4. Brother J. Plummer-El, National Grand Sheik
5. Grand Sheik Clarence Reynolds-El, former National Grand Sheik now named Rommani M. Amenu-El
a. (Offshoot) Grand Sheik Joel Bratton Bey, The Moorish Science Temple Divine and National Movement, of North America, Inc., No. 13. The Moorish American National Republic.

(Note: *The Present National head of the Reincarnated Moorish Science Temples are Bro. Willie-Bey headquarters 3810 Wabash Ave, Chicago, Illinois and Bro. Ronald-Bey located in Atlanta, Georgia).


Timothy Dingle-El, in his book “THE RESURRECTION: MOORISH SCIENCE
TEMPLE OF AMERICA, INC. THE TRUTH: BE YOURSELF AND NOT — SOMEBODY ELSE” The
title “Supreme Grand Sheik (for Timothy Dingle-El) is used. Timothy Dingle-El died in 1980 and was succeeded by his wife Louise Dingle-El, as Prophetess” from his group came at least five separate leaderships;

1. Grand Sheikess / Governess Sis. L. Dingle-El, who took charge of Temple 13-A (and 13-B) from the original Temple #13 founded by G. Cook Bey-G.G. From the work of the Dingle El brothers came the splits of the Temple No. 13, and the creation of a fraction headed in Baltimore, MD, called the Noble Order of Moorish Sufis in Baltimore. Sultan Rafi Sharif Bey on July 7, 1957, this group later lead to the founding of the Moorish Orthodox Church and the Moorish League. The Order of the Resurrection with its Second Heaven Order of four degrees was co-written by Sheik Rafi Sharif Bey and Sheik Timothy Dingle El.
2. Grand Sheik William Rice-Bey
3. Grand Sheik Hayus Sample-Bey, who now calls himself “The Prophet”
4. Grand Sheik Jerome Graham-Bey
5. Grand Sheik Clarance Prather-El

Then of course, you have Supreme Grand Advisor and Moderator of the MSTA Inc.
*Prophet Noble Drew Ali – According to Supreme Grand Sheik Edward Mealy-El, the only Supreme Grand Advisor and Moderator is the Prophet, the Supreme Grand Chairman etc…

1st Supreme Grand Advisor and Moderator Charles Kirkman-Bey (1929-1959), actually On September 26th, 1930, Supreme Grand Sheik Edward Mealy-El sent Charles Kirkman-Bey an official Temple letter and to other Temples, that the credentials of those listed were REVOKED; Charles Kirkman-Bey and F.
Nelson-Bey, also several others as mentioned above), by 1934, Charles Kirkman-Bey formed the MSTA Inc. and continue using the title until his death in 1959). (Note: Bro. Kirkman Bey was never made a Sheik by Prophet Noble Drew Ali or given any official position by Prophet Drew Ali; he however was made an Adept due to him being place within the affairs of the Prophet due to his visit in Cuba).
2nd Supreme Grand Advisor and Moderator F. Nelson-Bey (1959-1962)
3rd Supreme Grand Advisor and Moderator J. Blakely-Bey (1963-1971)
4th Supreme Grand Advisor and Moderator R. Love-El – He became the 4th Supreme Grand Advisor and Moderator in 1971, a title later changed to (National) Grand Sheik and Moderator of the Moorish Science Temple of America Inc.
5th (National) Grand Sheik & Moderator Brother R. Jones-Bey,

(Note: Grand Sheik Kudjo El of the Canaanland Moors M.H.T.S. / M.S.T.A. pointed out “We do not follow ‘sovereignty,’” said Brother R. Jones Bey, grand sheik of the Moorish Science Temple. “The prophet never talked about that. Our organization has been misunderstood by people who see the value of our religion but don’t want to conform. They are not members of our organization.”-http://www.rawstory.com/…/sovereign-citizens-express-fears…/. Moreover, the Albions (so-called Europeans) are NOT and can NOT be Sovereigns here due to the fact they are immigrants / aliens. They can ONLY obtain “Titled Sovereigns” and that is by way of the original / aboriginal / indigenous / native people who’s bloodlines and lineages were already here prior to the European invasion and colonization.

Chapter 29 Holy Koran of MSTA prepared by Prophet Noble Drew Ali
MAGISTRATE AND SUBJECT
1. 0 thou, the favorite of Heaven, whom the sons of men, thy equals, have agreed to raise to SOVEREIGN power and set as a ruler over themselves; consider the ends and importance of their trust, fax more than the dignity and height of thy station).

Therefore, who to believe? We have never seen letters of credentials for the Supreme Grand Sheik position under Supreme Grand Sheik Edward Mealy-El in concession for any of the above alleged lineages and since it is documented that Edward Mealy-El was chosen by Prophet Noble Drew Ali to be the Supreme Grand Sheik, the position next to him, then it would only be right to show the letters of credentials to prove which lineage is the said one true lineage. Common sense, tells us that obviously the leadership of the MSTA Inc. under (National) Grand Sheik & Moderator Brother R. Jones-Bey doesn’t have the proof. The MSTA Inc. do not even used the “Supreme Grand Sheik” title, as well as, neither does the MSTA fraction(s) under John Given-El. They all uses the “National Grand Sheik” title instead. However, upon investigation, we find that the Prophet never appointed a National Grand Sheik. Also, neither John Given-El, nor Charles Kirkman-Bey were ever given the title ‘Sheik’, eventhough, they both were ‘Adepts’ meaning the two went through the Moorish Holy Temple of Science “Adept Chambers” by Prophet Noble Drew Ali. Of course, none of this would make a difference, if it was not for the constant reference to others being “bootleg groups.” We would not have to expose these truths and blatant facts. Therefore, relinquish your egos and lets’ really form a “United Moorish Divine and National Movement!”

Even, so, there are nearly 260 temples between the (3) major groups. This is an excellent work, however, as you see the Moorish National Divine Movement is not immune from fragmentation and many are claiming to be the ‘ONLY’ True Moorish Science Temple of America. The ‘ONLY’ Truth of the matter is that there is ”NO’ one True Moorish Science Temple of America, seemingly, this died with Holy Prophet Noble Drew Ali, the Supreme Grand Chairman and Edward Mealey-El, the Supreme Grand Sheik of the M.S.T.A.. Also, there is a serious problem in which that needs to be corrected. In 1934, the late Supreme Grand Advisor and Moderator Charles Kirkman-Bey changed the status of the movement from a religious organization to a non-profit organization, hence, MSTA, Inc. But many other MHTS / MSTA and etc…has followed the same path and have become merely non-profit organizations. The Charter of the Temple “IS” the Mandate. The Charter for the Temples have the words “Charter Warrant & Dispensation” on it. In International law, Charters are seen as Treaties. Through some investigation some Moors did, there is only three organizations that has “Charter Warrant & Dispensation” on their charter. That’s the Vatican, the Masons and the Moorish Science Temple of America. The Vatican copied what Prophet Noble Drew Ali did with setting up the Moorish Science Temple of America. After 1963, no other organization was able to do what the Vatican and the Moorish Science Temple of America did. Any church that want real power have to be under the Vatican umbrella, all Moorish Science Temples are “suppose” to be under the original formula that Prophet Noble Drew Ali put the Temple in, which was the “Hurds-Smith Revised Statute”. The Hurds-Smith Revised Statute is thousands of pages long and shows every single aspect of running a nation and government. ECCLESIASTICAL SOCIETY: “The American system of church-state relations presupposes that there are two realms in civil society, the sacerdotum and the regnum. Each is distinct from and independent of the other. Each is its own center of authority, not one derived from or existing at the sufferance of the other. This division of powers is embodied in the opening phrase of the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution and is enforceable by the judiciary to, inter alia, protect churches from government when the latter exceeds its limited powers. Corporation = Corpus = Body = Organism = Organization= Body Politic= Government = Nation The question may arise; how can the Moorish Science Temple of America, which is filed as a “Religious Corporation” be a government? This is a valid question, for there are many who think that a “Religious Corporation” cannot be considered a government. However, a nation or government is in fact an organization of powers and authority the same as the word “organism” (body) is an organization of cells and organs. Organization (organism) is the same as body. Thus you also have the word “corporation” from the word “corpus” meaning body. This is also why you have the phrase “body politic” when referring to a nation or a government. “Religious Corporation” simply means a “Divine Government”, or a Divine organization of powers and authority (Divine Organization, Divine Organism / Body). (see “BLACK’S LAW DICTIONARY” and “WEBSTER’S DICTIONARY”). Prophet Noble Drew Ali filed his organization in County ie common law venue, thus in law it’s considered a corporation sole. A 501c3 is filed with Sec of state, it’s a statutory corporation, a Inc, it’s a creature of the state. The Prophet’s organization is a Moral Corporation, authority comes from Muhammad. A 501c3’s authority comes from the IRS. The Moorish Science Temples that are 501c3 “CAN NOT” “activate” the Mandate, which “IS” the Temple Charter because they are under the “jurisdiction” of the de facto Federal government, the I.R.S., the said Crown and the Vatican with “privileges” (http://www.irs.gov/charities/​charitable/article/​0,,id=96099,00.html). Temples that “are under” the Hurds-Smith Revised Statute “CAN” do real nation building, make political moves, and set up “processes” to help re-educate the lost de-nationalized people about law, history, their divine creed, birth rights / divine rights (quote, Moorish Brooklyn Intelligence). ​

The Holy Prophet Noble Drew Ali also said, “This is no social organization, it is a divine and national movement.”

But, yet this is exactly what many said Grand Sheiks has turned this into, especially those that fall under the 501c3 status. Once again, the Moorish Science Temples that are 501c3 “CAN NOT” “activate” the Mandate, which “IS” the Temple Charter under the Hurds-Smith Revised Statutes, because they are under the “jurisdiction” of the de facto Federal government, the I.R.S., the Crown and the Vatican with
“privileges” (http://www.irs.gov/charities/​charitable/article/​0,,id=96099,00.html). U.S.A. is a RELIGIOUS CORPORATION managed by Queen Elizabeth and UNDER CONTROL OF THE VATICAN. Therefore, ALL said MOORS contracting with the U.S. / U.S.A. are Chattel Property of the Vatican. Go to the www.manta.com website, owned by Dunn & Bradstreet. If you research the private corporation called ‘the UNITED STATES Government’, you will find that the ‘OWNER’ is listed as being ‘Archbishop Deric J. McLeod, of The Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, of Washington, D.C. Since Archbishops of the Vatican are sworn to poverty, then, the Archbishop can only be the named agent for the secular (so-called) Roman Empire, situate in the city/state called the Vatican. According to “ELEMENTS OF ECCLESIASTIAL LAW” 20: The Pope can abolish any law in the United States. Why, because, it is a Religious Corporation, a said Christian Society (see dvd / video “HOLY ROMAN EMPIRE vs. ROMAN EMPIRE” by True Master. He states that were two said Empires, one the said “Black Noblity” of the “HOLY ROMAN EMPIRE [COPTIC MOORS]” and the other, the said Roman Empire [NOT really an Empire, but a Republic or nation state] and when the said Roman Empire got out of line, the OTTOMAN EMPIRE of Sovereign Moors came in to nearly shut it down). Furthermore, here is partial list of various MSTAs and etc…being under the control of the Vatican (see Nanya Akh Heru El).

There it is either out of ignorance or conspiracy (NGS Jelani Bey)? This is the prime example of Prophet Noble Drew Ali’s statement “If you are not careful, your own brothers will try to put you in slavery.”

We, of the Moorish (Holy) Temple of Science (of the World) (civic organization) have adopted as its corporate name the Moorish Science Temple of America (foreign corporation / religious organization) under the religious charter. The Prophet put our movement under the protection of the First Amendment of the organic Constitution for the united States ‘Republic’ of (North) America. Under this protection no one could challenge what he taught to his followers. The (MHTS) Moorish Holy Temple of Science (civic organization) / (MSTA) Moorish Science of America (religious organization) called the (MNDM) Moorish National Divine Movement of North America (Moorish National and Divine Movement / Moorish Divine and National Movement) is a NOT for Profit, Theocratic Constitutional Monarchy, a separate body-politic, a lawful incorporate political unit (nation or organized state or society by nature) having such a form of (De Jure) Government it is to the (MNDM) Moorish National and Divine Movement that we pledge our Allegiance while obeying the laws, Articles of Association (1774), Declaration of Independence (1776), Articles of Confederation (1781), Barbary Treaties (1786-1816), Treaty of Peace and Friendship between Morocco and united States, Constitution for united States ‘Republic’ of (North) America (1787-1791), Treaty of Camp Holmes (1835) and etc…

“PROPHET MAKES PLEA TO NATION”

Our Divine and national Movement stands for the specific grand principles of Love, Truth, Peace, Freedom, and Justice, and I, The Prophet, am applying to all loyal, faithful Moors, members, and the American citizens to help me in my great uplifting acts of uplifting fallen humanity among the Asiatic race and nation. for I have suffered and severely in the past through misunderstandings of what the movement was dedicated to.

It is the Great God Allah, alone that guides the destiny of this Divine and National Movement. I know all true American citizens are identified by national descent names to answer and apply to the free national constitution of this free National Republic of the United States of America. That’s why I am calling on all true national citizens to help me morally and financially in my great work I am looking to help this national divine title of the government in which we live. For without a free national name, with a descent flag of your forefathers, there is not a national divine title of the government in which we live. This is from your true and Divine Prophet unto all American and foreign sympathizers.

PROPHET NOBLE DREW ALI, The Moorish Guide Feb-15-1929

“A DIVINE WARNING BY THE PROPHET FOR THE NATIONS”

I am hereby calling on all true citizens that stand for a National Free Government, and the enforcement of the constitution to help me in my great missionary work because I need all support from all true American citizens of the United States of America. Help me to save my people who have fallen from the constitutional laws of the government. I am depending on your support to get them back to the constitutional fold again that they will learn to love instead of hate, and will live according to Love, Truth, Peace, Freedom, and Justice, supporting our free national constitution of the United States of America.

I love my people and I desire their unity and mind back to their own free National and Divine standard because day by day they have been violating the national and constitutional laws of their government by claiming names and principles that are unconstitutional. It Italians. Greeks. English. Chinese. Japanese, Turks, and Arabians are forced to proclaim their free national name and religion before the constitutional government of the United States of America, it is no more than right that the law should be enforced upon all other American citizens alike. In all other government when man is born and raised there and asked for his national descent name and if he fails to give it. he is misused, imprisoned, or exiled. Any group of people that fail to answer up to the constitutional standards of law by name and principles, because to be a citizen of any government you must claim your national descent name. Because they place their trust upon issue and name formed by their forefathers.”

We, of the Moorish Holy Temple of Science of the World are the Moors that Holy Prophet Noble Drew Ali spoke of… “There are going to be new Moors that are going to come in with their eyes wide open, seeing and knowing, that are going to take you old Moors, seat you in the back, and carry out my law.”

Prophet Noble Drew Ali Declared “Nationality Is Free, Not Only Here But All Over The World”… “If You Don’t Do Anything Else…Declare Your Nationality!”

Therefore, we offer civic and religious instructions on nationality, birthright and divine creed etc…Prophet Noble Drew Ali taught “all members must proclaim their nationality and their Divine Creed that they may know that they are a part and a parcel (The original Divine Constitution of the Moorish Holy Temple of Science” states the legal term: “Part and Parcel” … The altered “Divine Constitution of the Moorish Science Temple of America” reads: “Part and Partial”) of this said government, and know that they are not Negroes, Colored Folks, Black People or Ethiopians, because these names were given to slaves by slave holders in 1779 and lasted until 1865 during the time of slavery, but this is a new era of time now, and all men now must proclaim their free national name to be recognized by the government in which they live and the nations of the Earth. The Moorish Americans are the descendants of the ancient Moabites whom inhabited the Northern Western and South Western shores of Africa.” For further information about Temple membership (Adept Chamber 3rd Heaven), nationality cards, and dues (donations, contributions) call the Moorish Holy Temple of Science of the World, Temple #2 Grand Sheik Asaru: Alim El-Bey @910-364-9099 (G) & 252-820-5322 (C).

Moorish Holy Temple of Science of the World

MHTS Public Record Affidavits / Notices – $100.00 We make PUBLIC DECLARATION of our Moorish / Moroccan Nationality and Birthrights. In other words, the forms are NOT just kept in the Moorish Holy Temple of Science of the World filing system. The appropiate affidavits and / or notices recorded at the Register of Deeds or Civil Filing Section of the Clerk of Superior Court and / or placed in the MOORISH GUIDE POST etc… and if needs to be notices are sent to the ‘color’ authorities. It is part of the lawful Moorish Nationalization Bureau (not Naturalization, because you are a Natural Person or Being = Indigenous, based on Natural Law and Universal Principles).

MHTS Nationality Card – $35.00 “Prophet Noble Drew Ali said “Your Nationality Card is going to change on you in your pocket.” The Nationality Card is made of hard stock plastic with lamination and with security features. Your weight, height, hair color, eye color, location (address), and date of birth.
Nationality Defined; And Its Legal Status Implications Nationality is that quality which arises from the fact of a person’s belonging to a nation or state. Nationality determines the political status of the individual, especially with reference to allegiance; while domicile determines one’s civil status. Nationality arises either by birth or by naturalization. Prophet Noble Drew Ali introduced `Nationalization’ (NOT ‘Naturalization’ for you are already a “Natural Person” [Indigenous]) with “Natural Rights” which are those inherent rights that cannot be granted or given as privileges from a government) to the Moors of North America and instructed (the Moors) to go by, and obey, the laws of the federal, state, and county governments. This statement must be qualified by those who know law – due to the fact that many, among the masses, are lacking important details of civil – liberties knowledge and of their inalienable birthrights. During that time period within the Moorish Movement (1920s) when the Prophet made that statement, the individual states of the United States of America, were Sovereign. Local and state Governments, by the Constitution law, and operated according to the states’ constitutions. No state constitution was at variance to the National Constitution. The state and the federal, both, were to function (with written, delegated power limitations) according to the National Constitution for the United States Republic. See Article VI of the Constitution. And this is the `Supreme Law of the Land’. Counter to the Supreme Law of the Land, the form of governance for the United States Republic was, `under color of law’, changed. This came about, progressively, after some deviant political acts took place. One of the deviant and negating political acts has come to being historically called, the `New Deal’. These acts took place under the administration of the Franklin D. Roosevelt in the year 1933. This date (1933) calculates three (3) years and eight (8) months after the Prophet Noble Drew Ali veiled his form.

MHTS Tax-Exempt Card – $50.00 Prophet Noble Drew Ali warned us that “We Are Going To Be Taxed To Death!” The Moorish Holy Temple of Science of the World Tax-Exempt card gives a (natural) person the ability to be tax-exempted from corporations, such as, Wal-Mart, Lowes, Home Depot and etc…Today, the average hard working American has become so accustomed to paying “Taxes” until they coined the phrase “The only things certain in life is death and taxes.” Following list of today’s Local, State and Federal Taxes … remember, none of these taxes existed 100 years ago: Accounts Receivable Tax, Building Permit Tax, CDL License Tax, Cigarette Tax, Corporate Income Tax, Federal Income Tax, Federal Unemployment Tax, Fishing License Tax, Food License Tax, Fuel Tax, Gasoline Tax (42 cents per gallon), Hunting License Tax, Inheritance Tax, Inventory Tax, Liquor Tax, Marriage License Tax, Medicare Tax, Property Tax, Real Estate Tax, Service Charge Taxes, Social Security Tax, Road Usage Taxes, Sales Tax, Recreational Vehicle Tax, School Tax, State Income Tax, Telephone Federal Excise Tax, Telephone State and Local Tax, Telephone Usage Charge Tax, Utility Taxes, Vehicle License Registration, Tax Vehicle Sales Tax, Well Permit Tax, Workers Compensation Tax, and etc… (Unofficially) since 1871 THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA (USA) HAS BEEN CORPORATION but by 1933 it became official (New Deal). So, under “color of law” taxes are the European corporate (Business) investment designed for her Western European Settlers to pay homage to the said Crown. According to the Constitution for the united States of America Article 1, Section 2, states, Representatives and direct Taxes shall be apportioned among the several States which may be included within this Union, according to their respective Numbers, which shall be determined by adding to the whole Number of free Persons, including those bound to Service for a Term of Years, and excluding Indians not taxed, three fifths of all other Persons.

The 3/5 Compromise was reached, stating so-called negroes were counted as 3/5 of a person when
taking census to determine representation in the 18-19th Century alledgely, until the 13, 14, and 15th amendments extended suffrage, granting so-called negroes ‘alleged’ full citizenship (although discrimination in other forms occurred) and now every 30 years we change our names…in the early 1900’s we were called negroes, by the 1930’s we were called coloreds by the 1960’s we were called blacks and by the 1990’s we were called African-Americans…all “color of law” labels. The dreaded Dred Scott Supreme Court Decision sustained the original “3/5 Clause” as a perpetual fact of law. This is why the 14th Amendment is an Ex post facto Law to the 13th; a hoax and a sham that, under color of law, suddenly transforms negro said slaves into U.S. citizens. This violation of suppressing their nationality and divine creed is only equaled by the process of “denationalization” in the 14th and 15th Amendment. These two ex post facto Amendments were keeping the Moorish buried in a shallow grave of the United States with such an iron hand until the Holy Prophet instructed the Moors to go through them to regain their national and religious status. He said “So, there isn’t but one supreme issue for my people to use to redeem that which was lost, and that is to prove there is no need for the application of the 14th and 15th Amendments for the salvation of our people and citizens.” The violations of ACT-5 via various MSTAs Officials work hand in hand with the oppressive denationalization activities of the 14th and 15th Amendments. Denationalization ranks high on the list of international crimes; with ‘Genocide’, and ‘Treason’. Preventing the Moorish from proclaiming themselves as a Nation of People, by any means, is also to overthrow their Divine Constitutional Right to autonomy. Every Human Being has an unalienable and divine right to have a nationality. Prophet Noble Drew Ali said “You are what your ancient forefathers and foremothers were…Cushite (Moabite / Moorish)!”

  1. It¡¦s really a great and helpful piece of information. I¡¦m satisfied that you shared this helpful information with us. Please keep us informed like this. Thank you for sharing.

  2. Voice Truth says:

    Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible.

    Jewish Rabbis have publicly announced that their Messiah will be revealed in the coming years who will be a leader and spiritual guide to all nations, gathering all religions under the worship of one God.

    Biblical prophecy tells us that this Jewish Messiah who will take the stage will be the antichrist “who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God” (2 Thessalonians 2:4). For a time he will bring about a false peace, but “Therefore when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place (Matthew 24:15)…then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be” (Matthew 24:21).

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them. This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically in Revelation 13:16-18:

    “He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

    Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.”

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards. Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency. This Mark couldn’t be spiritual because the word references two different physical locations. If it was spiritual it would just say in the forehead. RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency. It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it. Revelation 13:11-18 tells us that a false prophet will arise on the world scene doing miracles before men, deceiving them to receive this Mark. Do not be deceived! We must grow strong in Jesus. AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    “Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name” (Revelation 14:9-11).

    People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we needed two key things. One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast.

    Visit http://WWW.BIBLEFREEDOM.COM to see proof for these things and why the Bible truly is the word of God!

    If you haven’t already, it is time to seek God with all your heart. Jesus loves you more than you could imagine. He wants to have a relationship with you and redeem you from your sins. Turn to Him and repent while there is still hope! This is forever…God bless!

    “EITHER HUMAN INTELLIGENCE ULTIMATELY OWES ITS ORIGIN TO MINDLESS MATTER OR THERE IS A CREATOR…” – JOHN LENNOX

    We all know God exists. Why? Because without Him, we couldn’t prove anything at all. Do we live our lives as if we cannot know anything? No. So why is God necessary? In order to know anything for certain, you would have to know everything, or have revelation from somebody who does. Who is capable of knowing everything? God. So to know anything, you would have to be God, or know God.

    A worldview without God cannot account for the uniformity and intelligibility of nature. And why is it that we can even reason that God is the best explanation for this if there is no God? We are given reason to know or reject God, but never to know that He does not exist.

    It has been calculated by Roger Penrose that the odds of the initial conditions for the big bang to produce the universe that we see to be a number so big, that we could put a zero on every particle in the universe, and even that would not be enough to use every zero. What are the odds that God created the universe? Odds are no such thing. Who of you would gamble your life on one coin flip?

    Is there evidence that the Bible is the truth? Yes. Did you know that the creation accounts listed in the book of Genesis are not only all correct, but are also in the correct chronological order? That the Bible doesn’t say the Earth was formed in six 24-hour days but rather six long but finite periods of time? That the Bible makes 10 times more creation claims than all major “holy” books combined with no contradictions, while these other books have errors in them? The Bible stood alone by concurring with the big bang saying, “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth” (Genesis 1:1); and says our universe is expanding, thousands of years before scientists discovered these things. Watch a potential life-changing video on the website listed below with Astronomer(PhD) Hugh Ross explaining all these facts based on published scientific data. He has authored many books, backed even by atheist scientists.

    Jesus came to pay a debt that we could not; to be our legal justifier to reconcile us back to a Holy God; only if we are willing to receive Him: “For the wages of sin is death…” (Romans 6:23).

    God so loved the world that He gave us His only begotten son, so that whoever believes in Him, through faith, shall not perish, but have everlasting life. Jesus says if we wish to enter into life to keep the commands! The two greatest commands are to love God with all your heart, soul, strength, and mind; and your neighbor as yourself. All the law hang on these commands. We must be born of and lead by the Holy Spirit, to be called children of God, to inherit the kingdom. If we are willing to humble ourselves in prayer to Jesus, to confess and forsake our sins, He is willing to give the Holy Spirit to those who keep asking of Him; giving us a new heart, leading us into all truth!

    Jesus came to free us from the bondage of sin. The everlasting fire was prepared for the devil and his angels due to disobedience to God’s law. If we do the same, what makes us any different than the devil? Jesus says unless we repent, we shall perish. For sin is the transgression of the law. We must walk in the Spirit so we may not fulfill the lusts of the flesh, being hatred, fornication, drunkenness and the like. Whoever practices such things will not inherit the kingdom (Galatians 5:16-26). If we sin, we may come before Jesus to ask for forgiveness (1 John 2:1-2). Evil thoughts are not sins, but rather temptations. It is not until these thoughts conceive and give birth by our own desires that they become sin (James 1:12-15). When we sin, we become in the likeness of the devil’s image, for he who sins is of the devil (1 John 3:8); but if we obey Jesus, in the image of God. For without holiness, we shall not see the Lord (Hebrews 12:14).

    The oldest religion in the world is holiness through faith (James 1:27). What religion did Adam and Eve follow before the fall? Jesus, Who became the last Adam, what religion does He follow? Is He not holy? He never told us to follow the rituals and traditions of man but to take up our cross and follow Him (Luke 9:23). There are many false doctrines being taught leading people astray. This is why we need the Holy Spirit for discernment. Unlike religion, holiness cannot be created. It is given to us from above by the baptism of the Spirit. Jesus is more than a religion; He is about having a personal relationship with the Father. Start by reading the Gospel of Matthew, to hear the words of God, to know His character and commandments. Follow and obey Jesus, for He is the way, the truth, and the life!
