Divine lessons part three.

Chapter 25 of the Holy Quran for the Moorish Science Temple of America, a holy covenant of the Asiatic nations. Ye are the children of one father provided for by his care, and the breast of one mother hath given you suck. Let the bonds of affection therefore unite thee with thy brothers, that peace and happiness may dwell in thy father’s house.

And when ye separate in the world, remember the relation that bindeth you to love and unity, and prefer not a stranger before thy own blood. If thy brother is in adversity, assist him. If thy sister is in trouble, forsake her not. So shall the fortunes of thy father contribute to the support of his whole race, and his care be continued to you all and your love to each other.

Moors, our brothers are in adversity and our sisters are in trouble because they are running around screaming, “Black lives matter, Black is beautiful, Black love,” and other such things that keeps us in turmoil. As scientists, we must reach out to these brothers and sisters, and show them the proof that they are not and cannot be Negro, colored folks, Black people, or Ethiopians.

The world is our stage, and if we are not doing our part to uplift fallen humanity, we are now no better than those who have stripped us of our history, culture, customs, religion, and laws, as well as our nationality. If we do not do our part in uplifting fallen humanity, we are enemies to the cause and justice must catch us.

The temple is not just a place we worship in on Fridays and study in on Sundays. Our bodies are temples, and we must keep them pure with love and clean with water. How can I say I have race pride and I love my people if I stand by and watch my people be destroyed? This is falsehood. We Moors only deal in truth.

The Swahili word “Ujima” means collective work and responsibility, and it is defined as: to build and maintain our community together and make our brothers’ and sisters’ problems our problems and solve them together. You cannot call yourself a representative of the Moorish American people if you do not make it your aim and objective to educate the Moorish people.

It’s fine and dandy to preach and teach to a group of Moors who have embraced the teachings of Noble Drew Ali, but what about those that are lost and are looking to find a righteous path? Will we abandon them? If a man must know, he must be what he knows.

Our purpose must be to make our collective vocation the building and developing of our community in order to restore our people to their traditional greatness. By teaching our people to be themselves is a form of reparations. We are repairing a system that was broken, and that is the mind. The mind conquers all.

We are all prophets and angels because we are thoughts of Allah manifested in the flesh, and we are thoughts of Allah manifested in human flesh. Therefore, we must save our Moorish nation from the wrath of Allah, which is sure to come.
