The Moorish Science Temple Of America Inc.
was founded in 1913 by Prophet Noble Drew Ali for the sole purpose of uplifting fallen humanity, coming as he did in somewhat
the same manner as did Jesus, Mohammed, Buddha and Confucius and other Prophets of their day. It is truly wonderful and astounding
to see one come into this "Mad Human Drama" for the sole purpose of saving humanity. This picture is the likeness of our Prophet
Noble Drew Ali who serves humanity through His teachings.
Since His passing in 1929, there have been
five successors to Prophet Noble Drew Ali, Bro. C. Kirkman-Bey, Bro. F. Nelson-Bey, Bro. J. Blakely-Bey, Bro. R. Love-El,
and the present Grand Sheik of the Moorish Science Temple Of America Inc., Bro. R. Jones-Bey. It is through this lineage that
we have been commissioned at this Missionary Temple
and elsewhere throughout the country to foster the lofty teachings of Love, Truth, Peace, Freedom and Justice.
In the more than thirty years since the Moorish
Science Temple of America Inc. existence within these institutions, Bro. William Parker-Bey (1912-2006), has been our greatest
inspiration. His life was the pattern for men to follow that leads the way to virtue. Bro. William Parker-Bey always encouraged
the Moors to be faithful to Allah and the Temple and we would
Islam as brought by our
Prophet Noble Drew Ali has found it's way into the hearts and minds of thousands of brothers and sisters who had no direction
in life and who now follow the Prophet to a destiny which is not uncertain nor unknown.
