Hello all, I did a Google search on Wahibi Shriners and came up what I considered as short.

Can someone explain just what they are in terms of an organization. What do they do, what is the criteria for joining, etc.

Sorry, but I'm confused.

No, I found the shriners.org site and I did not find what I thought was a good info. Not trolling here and I don't know the answers.

The links I found on Google related to Wahibism which from all indications has nothing to do with the shriners. Am I right?

Shriners are pretty self explanatory. They are one of the largest charitable organizations in North America. I am one, and you should be too! We run 8 children's hospitals where state of the art care is provided for FREE!! Burn victims, spinal injuries and birth defects have all been researched and treated and millions of children are better off because of Shriners.

Wahabi is probably just a local Shrine Temple. Ours is called the Marzuq Shrine Temple. The Wahabi part is not important, there are hundreds of different Shrine Temples.

I hope you're not suggesting something xenophobic about Islam - which may have been mistakenly suggested by myself. But I'm curious, I understand Masons come in all faiths (as long as it is monotheistic I believe). But yeah, I would be interested to learn more.

@getreadyalready - Whats the "Marzuq" thing about?

It is a star and a crescent. We also open the Quran on the altar along with the Bible and the Epic of Gilgamesh.

Masonry and Shriners are not religion specific. We do not allow atheists, but we don't care what the name of your God is.

You know what...sadly I don't even know what the Marzuq thing is about! I am sorry, and I feel terrible. My Blue Lodge (Masonic Lodge) is the Robert Butler Lodge. I can tell you all about Robert Butler, LOL!

Marzuq Shrine

Here is our local website.

The spark that ignited the start of what was later to become Marzuq Shrine Temple was delivered by Lewis B. Brantley, Potentate of Morocco Temple on April 4, 1985 at a Legistlative Masonic Breakfast to Joseph L. Gillespie, President of the Tallahassee Shrine Club. Illustrious Sir Lew said, "There ought to be a Temple here in Tallahassee Joe, and I'm going to discuss it with you right after this meeting".

Shortly after this meeting, work began to organize and start collecting signatures. In selecting a temple name, "Marzuq" was chosen because it's meaning fit Tallahassee perfectly, "a place in the hills". 724 signatures were submitted on the first deadline, April 1, 1986, far short of the required 1,000.


Found it!! And, may I say that Joe Gillespie is still an active member and a friend!!

Thanks, is it a charitable organization only? I was not aware of the 8 hospitals ans burn centers it supports. More people need to get involved in charities. I commend you.
Are there any ties to Islam, based in Islam? Where did the crest come from?

Yes it is tied in a way to Islam, although it is definitely not an Islamic organization. It is the Ancient Arabic Order Nobles of the Mystic Shrine. AAONMS

We trace the roots and learning back to those Arabic Orders. It is entirely a charitable organization, and if you watch the History Channel specials about modern Masonry, they report that the Shriners are founded to change a waning perception of Masonry in the 19th century. After a couple of public murders and outcry over the secrecy of Masonry, some of the members set out to something charitable to create more positive press regarding the fraternity.

Albert Pike was considered an clandestine Mason, and he certainly does not represent most Masons. Prince Hall is also a clandestine branch of Masonry in my state (Florida), although it has become an accepted Lodge in many states, including Washington D.C. and Texas.

We certainly do not "worship" anything. And we do not discuss Lucifer, or any other particular God for that matter.

The vast majority of members are regular Christians. We do pray in Lodge, but we don't use any specific name, such as Jesus or Allah or Lucifer. We use monikers that apply to the craft, such as "Grand Architect of the Universe" when we refer to God.

Lucifer is a Latin word (from the words lucem ferre), literally meaning "light-bearer", which in that language is used as a name for the dawn appearance of the planet Venus, heralding daylight. Use of the word in this sense is uncommon in English, in which "Day Star" or "Morning Star" are more common expressions.
