Islam Meeting The Need of Its People

We had a young Sister in need of help she first went to a city Shelter that was (is) operating under a Christian Church; the young Sister was told that she must attend prayer services before she could be given food and a place to sleep. She explain to those who in charged that she is a Moslem that her faith is Islam. They then told her that it is required that anyone seeking food and or shelter MUST attend a prayer services. The Sister then ask to speak to the director to make her plea; the director informed her that if she is a Moslem and her faith is Islam then it would be best she go to an Islamic shelter to seek help.

The Sister then called The Moorish Science Temple of America-1928; as we not only fed the Sister but seen that she had a place to live which she can then set her plans in motion to get established.

When we help anyone, we can never place upon s/he to attend our religious Services for it would have to be a conscious decision on the person to attend services. There is no compulsion to take up the faith of Islam; this is not forced on anyone seeking help i.e. food and shelter. There is a great need that we provided help to the less fortunate; their should be Islamic shelters in every major city if there is a Mosque or Islamic Temple in a city or township there should be a place where Muslims/Moslems can receives help.

Now this would also bring to mind why should there be such a need for Islamic homeless shelters if the Islamic (Ummah’s) Communities are looking after the wellbeing for its followers. It would seem that any Mosque or Islamic Temple would meet the needs of the less fortunate within the faith of Islam; as we know all to well this is not the case. In many Mosque across the country (here in America) racism and prejudice runs deep; within these Mosques you have clicks such as you will have in just one Mosques a group of Arabs which keep to themselves seldom do they interact with anyone outside of their race.
 Then you have the Pakistan and the Bosnian along with varies African tribes to which they all keep close to their own ethnic group. They all keep within their own little ethnic social circle being under one Mosque all giving salat to the One Creator Allah. However, we see often the so-called African –American quickly and openly wanting to be so much accepted and liken to the Arabs to the point we can see them take up their customs and tradition of the Arabs and call it being and living Islam. Much of the customs and traditions of Arabs have been propagated as being Islam and if you do not follow their way then you are classified as a non-believer.       

 Islam embraces all cultures and costumes it does not take one over the over as being supreme or make one group a dictator of another. Islam comes to remove the ills of a society while maintaining its rich culture and traditions. Allah made us into Tribes and Nations that we recognized one other, and that our understanding there is but One Allah; which that alone should bring us together as one.

In all truth, it should not be anyone within the faith of Islam seeking shelter and food from another house of worship. Every Islamic Temple and Mosque should meet the need of its people.

You Change KEY 20 ? You’re Calling Prophet Drew Ali A Liar!

We will always defend who we are and what we are about; as some Moorish American has lost the very concept of TRUTH! How can someone who has brought shame and disappointed to the Movement by giving the faint of heart some eye and ear candy take what Prophet Drew Ali brought and taught and rip it up, NO! respect in holding firm and steadfast  to what The Moorish Science Temple of America was established for. To have NO! love to what has already been determined as what we as Moorish Americans are to learn, live and love according to what our Holy and Divine Prophet Drew Ali brought and taught. How butt-backwards can a group of people get when the TRUTH is slap dead in their face.

Let us take Our Flag The Moorish Flag which is the Red Flag with a 5 pointed Green Start in The Center. Now what in the hell was misunderstood about that! How can anyone calling themselves Moorish Americans fall for a Liar, Crook, Drug Dealer and Pimp while they was an officer within The Moorish Science Temple of America Inc. under R. Love-El , which is on the record not hearsay. How is it that they can come and replace the Truth with something made up because due to their Iblis nature in NOT! wanting  to submit before Allah. Being exposed of their ungodly nature by 2 different Grand Bodies of The Moorish Science Temple of America Inc.  put out of both , removal of membership as by the Prophet words “returning to the state where he found you” it was stated by this Iblis natured one that his hordes of followers are growing across the country. To a true follower of Allah we know that the weak will gather in hopes to take down the strong.

Natures Organic Islam

A True Blessing Can Not Be a Blessing if it is Not a Blessing to Others.

One question is always asked of those who are within The Moorish Science Temple of America; “Why is there so much division?”, “Why is there so many Temples and not just one Temple?” This same question could be place on other religious groups, as the general answer should be; “People find the truth to stern so they create something suitable for their weak of heart and faint of mind”. As an active Member within the Moorish Science Temple of America it was my absolute mission to find where the truth is being taught and lived and to stick with it.” The wise continueth to live from his first period; the fool is always beginning”. We call this measure getting on the “Straight Path” (Sirat al-mustaqeem). Read more…

Sisters,Mothers,Daughters Or Others

Islam to My Sisters of Faith!

We sisters come from various backgrounds. However, we have a common beginning. We were created women. When we were created, there were laws instituted by our creator to govern our lives. Some of us were fortunate enough to have had mothers to teach us as many of the laws that govern women as they knew, remembered, or had been taught themselves. All of us grew up to take on the physical attributes of womanhood, but not all of us were taught the laws of our nature. The Prophet came to redeem fallen humanity, which is symbolized by woman.

The Uniting of Asia

The Uniting of the Moorish American Community has been a hot topic of late. I have come across of a variety of different Moorish perspective, about how to unite Moors under one Moorish body, or consensus. There have been numerous discussions about how different Moorish factions are ready to work with one another, to build a more unified Moorish community. I ask “How can you unify the Moorish community, when there are so many different and distorted teachings that the Prophet Noble Drew Ali did not teach, being implemented by these so-called providers of the truth.

The Prophet Didn’t Bring That!

The Prophet  Didn’t Bring That!

 To offend this statement has been made without the offering of proof. We have seen Brothers and Sisters within other MSTA Grand Bodies and some who are not even in a Temple make declarative and affirmative statements as in saying what our Prophet did not teach. Now ask them what did the Prophet teach you can hear a ant sneeze, as they search within the shadow water of their empty minds and pull up pebbles as in trying to fool the unknowing in believing they are pearls. This has been a true detriment to the entire MSTA movement, as too many have either followed or taught on myths, conjectures and down right lies, for they have been seen as the mighty great ones within their misguided groups because they will not let go of the lie that they have been carry around for so long. It has become like a body part to them, if you tell them what they know is false teaching and pull out boat loads of actual proof, they would look at you as if you told them; they would have to cut off both their feet and hands.

A Reflection of Allah’s Prophet

A Reflection of Allah’s Prophet

 The thought of Allah was manifested in flesh January 8th, 1886. As a Prophet unaware he for many years was being prepared in mind and character; as a young adult fully unveiled of his Prophethood he appeared before his people as a unique philosopher, a spiritual reformer, a renowned restorer and molder of the pure Islamic faith, Moorish culture and moral concepts, an illustrious religious spokesman, a great leader, a judge of the highest eminence, uncompromising and an incomparable General. This Moorish Moslem sage, spoke with adept learning and wisdom, liken of which none had said before and none could say after him for the concerns of his people in America. He expounded the complex problems of the metaphysics, Islamic philosophy and theology; he taught on the creation of man and mankind, the decline, fall and rise of nations and empires, supporting his thesis with historical and irrefutable facts which has gone unchallenged to date.

Our Moorish Ramadan (Oct 1st -31st)

I have found since converting to Islam, each year the observation of “Ramadan” sparks many questions. The questions come from those who also observe “Ramadan” and those who do not. Moorish American Moslems do not practice Islam in the same fashion that Muslims practice Islam. This difference causes confusion amongst those who are not Moorish American Moslems. Some of the differences include the fact that we have different Prophets, speak different languages, and practice different cultural traditions. One of my closest friends is Ghanaian American. She is not religious, but her fiancé is Muslim and lives in Ghana, Africa. One of my Jewish co-workers and my closest friend both wished me a happy “Ramadan” season on Thursday, September 13, 2007. My response was thanks but My “Ramadan” hasn’t started yet. This response in both situations opened up a discussion about when and why Moorish American Moslems observe “Ramadan”.  Read more…

SUFI

Sufi—
During the eighth and ninth centuries A.D., a new emphasis began to develop within the religion of Islam. This emphasis was a reaction against the prevailing impersonal and formal nature of Islam. For many Muslims the shari‘a, while seen as necessary, failed to satisfy their deepest spiritual longings and desires. The search for deeper meaning began with a pietistic asceticism, which in turn led to the development of the popular mystical side of Islam – known as tasawwuf or Sufism. Read more…
