Elijah Muhammed was a member of Moorish Science Lodge, a clandestine and irregular rite. They are not recognized as legitimate Masons either by us or
by Prince Hall Masons. Their members constantly refer to regular Prince Hall Masons as "Uncle Toms" in other forums where they post. Yet Prince Hall
Masons have a legitimate history and practice regular Masonry, while Moorish Science do not, and are actually sort of a cult.
Way off. Moorish Science has nothing to do with Masonry what so ever. Noble Drew Ali taught from knowledge he gained from his travels overseas. He
started his journey in a circus but soon found himself in the school of the mystics (This craft existed far before Masonry was even thought off). His
writings in the Koran (Moorish Science) not to be confused with the Quran, illustrates the knowledge he gained from these mystic teachers.
Moorish Science took a wrong turn during the time of Elijah Muhammad, they fell into the trap of greed and selfish needs. Noble Drew Ali did not teach
the nonsense the NOI does, so calling them a cult is an insult without providing proof to back this accusation, infact this so called cult you claim
successfully ruled all of Europe, traded with the Natives in America far before Columbus knew anything of navigation, and introduced the mathematic
systems used to build monuments and temples including that of King Solomon. Indeed, the NOI is a racist sect using twisted teachings of the Moorish
Science to recruit more racist members, but anyone who read Noble Drew Ali teachings would know ALL CREATION comes from Allah, if you hate your
brother, you hate Allah. I am a MOOR and I never referred to any Prince Hall Mason as an Uncle Tom, so that statment should be edited to say "SOME"
of the NOI members, and not Moorish Science believe Prince Hall Masons are Uncle Toms.
In Moorish Science, we are taught about the hidden knowledge, the art of mathematics, the science of law and nature. Whatever crafts are in practice
in Masonic Temples are not practice in Moorish Academies. It's night and day.
Let's examine the word cult. According to Wikipedia, a cult is:
Cult roughly refers to a cohesive social group devoted to beliefs or practices that the surrounding culture considers outside the mainstream, with a
notably positive or negative popular perception.
Are the Masons not a social group devoted to beliefs or practices that surrounds culture outside the mainstream?
If Moorish Science is referred to as a cult, than the Masons wear the same shoes.
Is it not of the square to straighten the crooked places on the way and make the corners of our conduct square? Is not the of the compass to draw a
circle around our passions and desires to keep them in bounds of righteousness?
These teachings are far older than many think, as the fathers of this nation dialogued with Moors from Morocco, they somehow waltz together in order
illuminate those who are able to see. Elijah Muhammad was never a Mason nor part of Moorish Science. His prophet was Wallace Fard and he was a member
of the Fardian Islam, and not Noble Drew Ali Moorish Science.
