Recommended: Servants of Allah: African Muslims Enslaved in the Americas

6 03 2011

Despite the explosion of works on African Americans and religious history, little is known about the Muslims who came to America as slaves. Most assume that what Muslim faith any Africans did bring with them was quickly absorbed into the new Christian milieu. But, surprisingly, as Sylviane A. Diouf shows in this new, meticulously researched volume, Islam flourished during slavery.

This book presents a history of African Muslims following them from West Africa to the Americas. It details how, even while enslaved, many Muslims managed to follow most of the precepts of Islam.

Literate in Arabic, urbane and well-traveled, they drew on their organization and the strength of their faith to maintain successful, cohesive communities and to play a major role in the most well-known slave uprisings.

Servants of Allah is the first book to examine the role of Islam in the lives of both individual practitioners and in the American slave community as a whole, while also shedding light on the legacy of Islam in today’s American and Caribbean cultures.

Recommended: The Story of The Moors After Spain

3 03 2011

 

 

Before Ivan Van Sertima began revealing the indisputable truth about the Moors, there was Stanley Lane Poole. Stanley Lane Poole first published the book The Story of the Moors in Spain in 1886. The year Noble Drew Ali was made manifest on the plane of manifestation (Assiah).

The Story of The Moors after Spain describes in detail how the united houses of Ferdinand and Isabella resolved on the expatriation of the Moors; however failing to acknowledge the risks of the exile of the master minds of the Spanish civilization. No sooner was Granada fallen, thousands of Moors left Spain only to cross the strait to Africa to establish Moorish strong points, such as Tunis, Shershel, Oran, Algiers, continuing the display of Moorish genius.

The Story of The Moors after Spain is a dynamic work, and its resurrection today to an intellectually thirsty readership, along with S. Lane Poole’s general body of work and other literary contributions from authors addressing Moorish history, coincides with the contemporary movement of conscious Moors to awaken the general masses to an almost obscured and “forgotten,” but relevant history. Moorsgate.com recommends both The Story of the Moors in Spain and The Story of the Moors after Spain be studied as foundational works for an understanding of a hidden story of greatness.

Recommended: The Great Prophetic Design

22 02 2011

 

Researchers Bonnie Gaunt and James Heyworth have discovered a great design in the map of Africa which tells the same story as the ancient prophets of the Bible. This design is based in 1/10 models of both the earth and moon, clearly visible in the topography of the continent.

It becomes amazingly obvious that the future of planet earth, as revealed by the Old Testament prophets had been planned from the beginning, and impressed into the topography of Africa.

Chapters include: The Secret at the Summit; The Bethlehem Coordinates; Lake Victoria; The Great Collapse; The Crossroads of the Plan of God; The 37.3 Crossroad; Mount Kenya—Snow at the Equator; The Shining Mountain—God’s Great Universal Kingdom of Earth; Two Mountains, Two Rivers and Two Goats; “O Great Mountain”; The Number 373 and Absolute Zero; more.

RECOMMENDED: Lost Knowledge of the Ancients

6 02 2011

 

Representing the latest, often controversial findings in scientific and historical research, this anthology of essays commissioned by Graham Hancock, bestselling author of Fingerprints of the Gods, covers the forefront in alternative theories on history, the origins of civilization, technology, and consciousness with topics ranging from quantum philosophy and paranormal phenomena to the ancient use of electromagnetism, the effect of cosmic rays on human evolution, and NASA’s cover-up of ancient Martian civilizations.

Recognizing that many recent discoveries are actually rediscoveries of lost knowledge from past civilizations, these authors seek to understand where, within the bigger picture of human knowledge, our present time fits into the cycle of human existence.

In this work, Gary A. David, one of the many authors in this book, presents a theory about the Hopi Indian’s migration in the Southwest by way of an Orion template. He provides a map showing placements of the settlements in exact proportion to Orion. Although this migration occurred over several thousands of years, the grid was completed. He ends his chapter by saying “The word zona, as in the name Arizona, is particularly significant. From classical times onward, it has literally been defined as `The girdle [or belt] of Orion.”

This is one of many interesting subjects found in this literary compilation.

RECOMMENDED: Ancient Egypt 39,000 BC

6 02 2011

 

A view into the sophisticated and highly advanced civilization that preceded the world of the pharaohs

• Presents historical evidence of the civilization ruled by the “gods” that the Egyptians claimed preceded their own

• Explains who these prehistoric people were, what happened to them, and why they built a series of pyramids along the west bank of the Nile River

The recent discovery of a large stone at one of Egypt’s oldest ruins presents physical evidence that clearly and distinctly shows the markings of a machining process far beyond the capabilities of the Ancient Egyptians. Likewise, experimental modeling of the Great Pyramid’s subterranean chambers and passageways gives scientific evidence to support the theory that the civilization responsible for such magnificent monuments is much older than presently believed.

The ancient Egyptians recorded that their civilization resided in the shadow of a kingdom of “gods” whose reign ended many thousands of years before their first dynasty. What comprised this Civilization X that antiquity’s most accomplished people revered as gods?

Malkowski examines the evidence from historical and technical points of view, explaining who these prehistoric people were, what happened to them, why they built their civilization out of granite, and why they built a series of pyramids along the west bank of the Nile River.

The Zothyrian Concept of Moorish Science: A Perspective of the Ancient Science of Self Mastery

26 01 2011

The bodies and the souls of men are finite things, and they will change, yea, from the finite point of view the time will come when they will be no more. “But man himself is not the body, nor the soul; he is a spirit and a part of Allah.” (MHK: Chapter 1)

Moorish Science, the Ancient Moorish spiritual system of Mystic Islam, teaches the esoteric mysteries of the Unity of the omniscient, omnipotent and omnipresent, Allah. The “Vision of the Heart” (ru’yat al-qalb) is designed to bring man back into his divine inheritance which is the “Oneness of Allah” (101 Key #4).

The Moorish Scientist, through higher thought reflection, knows that from Allah proceeded the Allahuma (Elohim, Universal Principalities) (101 Key #97), and all the worlds of the microcosmic and macrocosmic Universe(s). Allah manifested all forms of reality and principalities within those realities; however, Allah remains single and alone, the Unity behind the illusion of multiplicity.

Moorish Scientists know there is only one Supreme Being, Allah, and that the Allahuma are expressions of that One Supreme Being. Moors strive to unify as one harmonic with the divine principalities, the Allahuma (Elohim), by developing within the psyche, the various attributes and divine qualities that symbolize and harmonize with the 99 + 1 cosmic functions of Allah that exist within Man. As Moorish Scientists, we know that the Supreme Being, Allah, is an ancient and mystic formula/harmonic that is linked to all spiritual systems of the ancient world.

Allah established all creation with the divine principles of Islam (Maat): Love, Truth, Peace, Freedom and Justice. Through the mystical practice of Islam and the demonstration of right action, the pure seeker and practitioner of Moorish Science develops the power to determine the quality of life which is led and experienced as an Asiatic Adept. The goal and aim of each Moor is to encourage mastery over their lower self by learning to function in the upper realms of the higher self: the plane of thought that is Self Disclosed by Allah (101 Key #70).

Moorish Scientists further understand that if Islam is not exercised by the Inner Man, then Man will not be in harmony with the universal laws (will) of Allah (101 Key #73); which otherwise breeds Hatred, Slander, Lewdness, Murder, Theft and everything that harms. As a Moorish Scientist, it is taught and understood that the body may deteriorate as it is subject to change, but the Spirit Self is immutable and ever existent as “time never was when man was not (MHK Chapter 1).”

The following are degrees of learning that Moorish Scientists encounter and experience for the opportunity to see beyond the veil: 1) the teaching of the science of Ahadiyya ( The indivisible Unity of Allah), 2) the adept choosing to follow the path of Allah Consciousness by practicing Taklif (the obligation to choose service and demonstrate the universal laws (will) of Allah), 3) the training of character through the art of divine self governance called Mahw, 4) the alignment of the Merciful Breath called al-nafas al-rahmani and 5) practicing the disciplines of Ma’ rifat (gnosis), which include the following components: the Study of the Lataif (subtle worlds within wombman/man), the study of the union of Allah (fina fi al-Haqq), functioning in harmony with the universal laws called haqq al-yaqin, and the acts of retreat and remembering the cosmic functions through Dhikr and Khawla.

Moorish Scientists understand that Allah (Eloah, Elah, Eli, El Elyuwn, Neter Neteru, YHWH) provided the “Primordial Science” (101 Key #18) through the spiritual teachings that were written in the ancient and/or divinely structured texts (Moorish Holy Koran, Holy Quran of Mecca, Bhagavad-Gita, The Torah, The true and ancient scriptures of the Helios Biblio-Text {Holy Bible}, the Ginza Rba and the Pert Em Heru) that were implanted in the four corners of Assiah (plane of Manifestation) to ensure that Ahl al-haqq (the followers of the real) might study the wisdom teaching of Islam [the spiritual system of harmonizing the higher vibrating consciousness with Allah's will, leading Man toward the Final Goal: Allah].

By the practice and exercise of the disciplines of Moorish Science, the adept will discover the Mysteries of Al-Haqq (the truth) (101 Keys #47-48) through mahq al-mahq (obliteration of obliteration) to reach the most divine and ultimate goal of an ever-evolving initiate: Ana Al-Haqq, I Am Truth for “Truth is Aught and Aught is Allah.”

The end result for all Moorish Scientists is to become one with Allah (Ahadiyya) and experience the Self Disclosure of Allah prior to death; to discover supreme harmony through the realization of Islam; to abide in fulfillment of one’s life purpose which is to return by which he came (hafira), and demonstrate peace and harmony in the world by uplifting fallen humanity. This is the Zothyrian Concept of Moorish Science, the science of the obliteration of the lower self.

Message to Moors Gate Readers: Preparing for the Paradigm of Change

20 01 2011

“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, in your love to each other.” – MHK (Chapter 25)

After spending the past two years working on and earning an MBA, with an emphasis on global and international management practices, Moors Gate’s website and content declined due to a lack of attention. Since the educational and professional development goal has been successfully achieved, for that phase of development, it is now the aim of Moors Gate to not only begin providing more innovative and educational articles, but to also offer new skills building services, educational materials and a greater level of dialog with the Asiatic community as a whole.

In developing a more comprehensive vision and mission statement for Moors Gate, it became evident that the Moorish American Community continues to 1) struggle economically, 2) possess a strong need for cohesive partnerships within its own communal structure and 3) need a plan for developing and maintaining an open dialog for Moorish Americans. The Moorish Community will continue to be stagnant and divided until such partnerships begin to come into fruition and a collective approach is taken for the advancement of Asiatics.

As a Moorish American and a constantly developing professional, I understand the challenges that the Moorish American community has faced since the departure of Noble Drew Ali. Moors Gate plans to work diligently to help Moorish American organizations do the following: 1) Develop Professional Strategic Plans, 2) Improve the Organization’s Operations through the Appropriate Implementation of Specific Management Systems as Developed by the consulting arm of Moors Gate, 3) Enhance the Organization’s Product and Community Service Delivery, and 4) Work in Partnership with willing and like-minded individuals/organizations to help grow each Organization’s Network Capacity. Moors Gate plans to develop more cohesive growth oriented relationships that both support Moors Gate and other progressive Organization’s Vision, Mission, and Community.

Moors Gate has studied extensively, the How’s and Why’s pertaining to the Moorish American Community’s lack of overall progress. After studying, analyzing and searching for practical solutions that not only help, but foster overall change and success, Moors Gate has developed a Solutions Based System that uses a specific time-tested Management System to help Organizations overcome business obstacles, administration and economic challenges and organizational struggles that hinder the organization’s ability to achieve goals and objectives, hampers program growth and operations and thwarts Moorish Unity. One of Moors Gate’s primary focuses is to assist community based organizations in developing and implementing a growth oriented system for success based upon a concrete “systems” approach to organizational development, growth and maintenance.

Moors Gate’s mission is to “Add Value to the Moorish Identity,” Enhance Moorish American Capabilities, Improve Organizational Performance, and Foster Continued Education for the purpose of being more competitive and progressive in all aspects of civilization development, cultivation and maintenance through high-quality consulting services and literature/educational products.

The vision that guides Moors Gate is building and maintaining a trusting, respectful, and supportive relationship that prioritizes Innovation, Organizational and Professional growth while propagating the values of Moorish Americans and developing sound solutions for economic stability, self sufficiency and educational curriculums and opportunities for Asiatic youth.

Moors Gate believes that collaboration with other organizations that have similar value systems can and will make a positive and lasting impression in our communities. Moors Gate core values are:

· Providing Individuals and Organizations with the necessary tools for learning and change

· Providing Organizations with the tools and/or insight to develop diverse partnerships that benefit the community as a whole

· Help Asiatics better understand the significance and benefits of Moorish American values

· Help Asiatics cultivate their potential and talents that demonstrate results in the form of beneficial and progressive action, that does not stagnate growth and that does not degrade Moorish Identity

As you navigate through the Moors Gate site, ask yourself how could Moors Gate benefit you or your organization? Moors Gate will make it its business to get a clear understanding of your goal(s) and work to put together a “systems based solution” to help you and your organization reach your goals. Moors Gate looks forward to serving you and your community by providing innovative and progressive ideas and information.

When providing information in the “contact us” portion of the website, please be sure to include your return e-mail address or any other contact information necessary for further dialog. Also, expect additions and changes to the Moors Gate website as time progress.

Economic and Strategic Plans were developed to guide Moors Gate toward both its long-term and short-term goals in aiding in the “Uplifting of Fallen Humanity” in both the Divine and National aspects of the Moorish Divine and National Movement. Moors Gate looks forward to a year of positive change and healthy accomplishments.

Sincerely,

Zothyrius Ali El, MBA/GM



Recommended: Women of Sufism (A Hidden Treasure)

Women of Sufism (A Hidden Treasure)

About This Book:

Helminski was the first woman to publish an English translation of the Qur’an and has built a career out of reprinting classic Sufi materials. This collection of primary sources casts a spotlight on the roles women have played in Sufi history: because Sufism sheds hierarchical and social distinctions in favor of a total consummation with the Beloved (Allah), women have always held an important position, says Helminski.

The collection opens with early writings about Sufi women, most of which were written by men, and some of which have only recently been made available in English. Here we learn of Rabi’a al-’Adawiyya, an eighth-century saint about whom many legends were composed, and the ninth-century healer Lady Nafisa, who was renowned for her Qur’anic knowledge and whose tomb is still a sacred destination for spiritual pilgrims of many religious traditions.

Helminski goes on to offer writings by and about Sufi women up to the present day, including poetry (Rumi has some competition!), folklore, prayers, songs and journal entries. Helminski does a fine job of introducing each subject, placing each shaykha (female teacher) in her historical context and explaining why she should be remembered. Some of the contemporary women are particularly interesting, such as Russian-born Sufi author Irina Tweedie, who describes her gradual path toward Sufism. This collection of women’s voices is a rich and varied resource for understanding women of “The Way.”

Book Review:

I am amazed at how women’s spiritual lives from the past keep resurfacing to inspire us today. In Women of Sufism, Helminski has selected stories, dreams, prayers and visions of female saints through the ages, from the time of the first Sufi women in the seventh century through to the present day. The stories span the many regions of the world where Sufism has been practised, including Asia, Africa, the Middle East and Europe.

The mystic women documented in this anthology weave their spiritual knowledge into their family life, their household tasks, daily actions, and even into their carpets and wall hangings. They are strong in their devotion and let nothing deter them from their personal connection with the Beloved. The stories give a sense of the importance and acceptance of women as teachers.

The titles of the chapters are themselves intriguing and give a glimpse of what the stories hold: A Jewel of Knowledge, The Enraptured Ones, My Soul is a Woman, Mother Love and The Fragrance of Prayer are just a few.

The book contains many short, penetrating stories about Rabi’a al-Adawiyya, an eighth-century mystic. In the chapter A Doorkeeper of the Heart, one of my favourite tales illustrates how Rabi’a's saintliness did not depend on showiness: “One day Hasan of Basra saw Rabi’a down by the riverside. He came and sat beside her, spread his prayer-rug on the surface of the water, and said, ‘Come sit with me and pray.’ ‘Do you really have to sell yourself in the market of this world to the consumers of the next?’ said Rabi’a. Then she unrolled her own prayer-rug in thin air and sat on it. ‘What you can do fish can do, Hasan, and what I did any fly can do. Our real work is beyond the work of fish and flies.’”

It is clear from the care people took to write down their dreams that they were important to the Sufis as instruments of the teachings. In this tradition, dreams are considered spiritual realities, often bearing glad tidings and providing a route through which God can communicate with devotees. The chapter Hidden Ways contains the dreams of at-Tirmidhi’s wife, which he recorded in his autobiography. The inner link was so strong between husband and wife that she would dream teaching dreams for him.

In another chapter, modern-day scholar Michaela Ozelsel documents her experience of a traditional solitary retreat. Isolated in a small apartment in Istanbul with enough supplies to last forty days, she describes how inner peace unfolded and a “polishing of the heart” occurred.

Women of Sufism is a great resource for understanding women’s ongoing search for the Divine. “It is becoming strongly clear that there will continue to be more and more stories of women of Spirit to shareas women in the current era rediscover their rightful role as equal partners on the spiritual path as well as in the world of daily human duties.” It is very important that we open to the spiritual knowledge, intelligence and vision of the feminine at this time in history.

The Moorish Blueprint to Power: An Economic Imperative for an Independent Moorish Community

14 10 2008

“In connection with our religious aims and beliefs, we must promote economic security. The preaching of economic security among us is by no means as widespread and intensive as the circumstances demand. No other one thing is more needed among us at this time than greater economic power. Better positions for our men and women, more business employment for our boys and girls and bigger incomes will follow our economic security. We shall be secure in nothing until we have economic power. A beggar people cannot develop the highest in them, nor can they attain to a genuine enjoyment of the spiritualities of life.

Our men, women and children should be taught to believe in the capacity of our group to succeed in business, in spite of the trials and failures of some of them. Trials and failures in business are by no means confined to any particular group of people. Some business ventures of all people fail. We have many men and women among our people who are qualified, both by training and experience, who are shining lights in the business world of all the people. It is a sad weakness in us as people that we have withheld the very encouragement, support and patronage that would have made some of our worthy business ventures a grand success. And worst of all, have joined in the condemnations of them when they failed. Except in cases of actual dishonesty, discourtesy, lack of service and actual unreliability, our business enterprises in every field of endeavor should have fullest of confidence co-operations and patronage whenever and wherever they can be given.” – Noble Drew Ali

Moors in the Americas are currently facing a serious economic situation, a situation that requires intelligent planning, comprehensive foresight and effective ideals that reflect the importance of collectiveness, unity, community and family development. Plans and programs for social and financial restoration have been discussed and urged in the past on moorsgate.com, but the time has surely come when a Moorish economic and community development solution has to be implemented and enforced for the continued survival of the Moorish identity, culture and civilization. As Ronald Reagan was quoted, regarding the European American nation, that “we are one generation from extinction.” This military concept must be adopted as it forces one to think in terms of longevity and social viability while also promoting a sense of urgency for security. It is paramount that Moors place into action and demonstrate community living and collective economics. If these basic ideals are ignored and replaced with disunity and misappropriated self indulgence, Moors will travel down a dangerous road of uncertainty.

After conducting an honest evaluation of our current condition, despite having exact knowledge of the physical and economic injustices, social dehumanization and unlawful denationalization of Moors and their posterity, it is thoroughly noted and documented in economic statistics that both conscious and un-conscious Asiatics alike have also contributed to our community’s current state of unemployment, poverty, financial degradation, disunity and disorganization. The contribution came in the form of failing to adhere to the structured guidance, messages and warnings put forth by those prepared adepts that came with functional knowledge of social and spiritual development.

Before Moors can begin to truly gain economic security, we must first organize our efforts, pool our resources and commit to structured long-term plans that are designed to engineer and manage progress, support and maintain a positive standard of living, and develop social security components that secure Moorish values, civil liberties and human rights. However, the cart cannot be placed before the horse. Therefore, Moors must build their own communal, familial, educational and economic infrastructures first then develop plans and aims that support the core foundational elements of society which are family and community.

The value of nationality, the discipline of a divine creed and the by-products of self sufficiency and self-reliance are national security benefits for Asiatics that desire a cultured and civilized standard of living that is designed for progress and improvement which stands in opposition to the usual failed-system(s) of degradation, false promise and repeated social failure. Modern day Moors must first develop a unified and uniform collective infrastructure and stop looking for the agents of oppression to be lawful, just and supportive to and of our economic and psychological development and socio-political status as that would have eventual adverse affects on their evident plan and strategy of continued domination.

This issue is urgent and thus Moors are encouraged to recognize their role and responsibility to the Moorish Nation as nationality is one part of the socio-political and collective development formula. Proactive strategies and innovative solutions for an organized, self sufficient and independent community structure must be implemented to establish initial building blocks and blueprints for eventual state-hood or nationhood. The following Moorish Agenda displays the path to fulfillment:

1. Demonstrate the action of Unity and group co-operation

2. Eliminate wasteful spending and re-route finances back into your own community

3. Pool your resources economically as well as physically as represented by labor and collective effort

4. Eliminate internal criticism and personal attacks on and of fellow Moors as this is a violation of Act 3 of the Moorish Constitution and By-Laws. (This weakens and destroys progress and the collective infrastructure)

5. Concentrate on land purchases (in bulk) to develop institutes of education, housing, industrial facilities, security training facilities and medical centers

6. Continuously observe and study others business and structural operations to ensure success and the maintenance of relevant intelligence which helps to reduce failure and excuses

7. Emphasize education in various disciplines of industry, media, foreign relations, social service, politics and juris prudence

8. Further develop ideals and practices of security to ensure the safety and development of the women and children that generate Moorish posterity

9. Tirelessly support the economic plan(s) that engage the relevant needs of the Moorish Nation as a forward progressing national force

Just as other nationalities in the Americas develop collective economics amongst themselves to build value and substance within their community, so must the modern Moors utilize this same law of nature (regarding survival) to support and protect themselves. Otherwise, Moors will continue to be at the mercy of others. This concept is realized when Notorious B.I.G. states, “my life in that man’s hands, while he just deciding.”

Therefore, it is proposed that Moors act on their own behalf to eliminate psycho-economic slavery by riding themselves of the manufactured consumer’s consciousness patterns of “guilt spending” and “status-by-brand” purchasing. These methods of financial control dictate that you, as consumers, buy and spend to express your love, support or importance to loved ones despite your economic condition. This is evidenced by the millions of parents that risk all of their savings and economic security to compete and/or appease their children and loved ones during the designated days of volume spending (Christmas, Valentines, etc). As a result, consumers, Moors included, purchase select brands that add social status. They also buy for the sake of buying with the fear that someone will fill left out or, in terms of parenting, less of a parent if they failed to follow the trend of “purchasing to please.” These spending behaviors have now given birth to terms that further label Asiatics as undesirables or according to economic terms: Sub-prime borrowers. Since Asiatics have become financial liabilities, they will soon be taken out of the economic loop, in mass, as financial “best -practice” will state that any financial institution that continues business with sub-prime borrowers will lose financial backing. Businesses, conducting business with economic undesirables, would become a risk due to demonstrating poor economic security values thus the action of “black-balling” financial liabilities all together will become common practice thus setting the stage for the next phase of neo-economic slavery. Just as the current “Financial Matrix Meltdown” will force lenders and financial institutions to alienate Asiatics due to poor credit scores, late payments and foreclosures; Moors will have to develop plans to support those that fall victim to poor financial decision making skills. Financial statistics will be used to annihilate Asiatic’s economic existence which then will again open gateways for the next phase of slavery. Thus Moors must learn to focus on finance and economics to remain competitive and relevant to the global market. As this paradigm shifts and the power holders change, Moors are going to have to put themselves in the position of power to embrace the claim of the next paradigm.

In essence, Moors and un-conscious Asiatics alike will experience a greater form of poverty, that will be inescapable if actions aren’t taken immediately. Since Asiatics are the largest consumers of devalued goods and services, the attacks on the psyche and emotional body to consume and purchase for the sake of familial relationships, bonding and/or social status ,despite the fact that no sufficient wealth can be displayed, will without doubt create a prison state without bars or end of sentence. However, operating in a frame-of-mind that aids and supports collective economics and the development of a Moorish economic power system, that $900 billion of annual expenditure could easily be redirected toward large (Moorish) community development projects, socio-political campaigns for the eventual establishment of the Moorish nation and the financial status to barter and trade with others which lead to allied relationships. This ability to collectively display and express such principles of unity and proactive behavior would be an active display of self independence, self preservation and self reliance. How else could one term themselves sovereign?

For Moors to truly gain any type of economic justice, Moors must learn to own and control their own economic markets. It is no secret that Moors, conscious and unconscious alike, have endured all manners of humiliation, deprivation, denationalization, suffering and impairment under the regime and de-facto reign of the agents of oppression and their perpetuated ideologies. It also well understood, and documented, that the Oppressive agent’s stronghold to power was solidified by treacherous acts of war and the exploitive extraction of Moorish wealth in the forms of resource materials, human effort and productive genius. This exploitation of Moorish wealth and resources, through the art of subjugation and subversive tactics, has continued to exponentially grow in the form of compound interest from the original principal of Moorish Wealth. As it is known, regarding injustice, it is the redistribution of gains earned and the disregard for prior injustices that, in effect, reward injustice. Although this is a topic unto itself, it must be understood that if Moors want justice as well as economic and social well-being, it is required that we control and own our communities and local and national markets. This means that Moors will have to learn how to produce and manufacture everything for and by themselves. Therefore the ownership and control of your own markets and communities places you outside of being mere workers and consumers within them. To do otherwise would be a blatant display of one handing over or giving away their commonwealth to others which, in essence, impoverishes them as well as denying future generations their god-given wealth of their ancestors (sounds familiar).

Where do we start? How do we begin?

One of the most important aspects to developing Moorish power is the deliberate focus on the human and financial resources that currently exist within the Moorish American community. There must be an analytical process that honestly evaluates the social strengths and weaknesses within our community. This analytical process must focus on our personal mistakes as a whole. It must force us to look at the “Whys” and the “Hows” of our lack of efficient organization, lack of coordinated development and application of skills that accomplish both the goals and aims that reflect the collective bottom-line expectations. In this process we must specifically look at ourselves as the culprits as this is the only path to self-mastery as a collective body (nation). The following questions have to be answered if we are to correct and improve upon our current state and condition:

1) Why is there familial instability and dysfunction?

2) Why is there inadequate housing?

3) What role have we played in the lack of educational and economic development within our community?

4) Why have we not seen more progress and stability amongst Moorish Americans?

5) What strategies have not worked that are currently being recycled as effective?

6) What is most needed to develop a long term successful exclusive Moorish community?

7) What can we do as a collective body to change our current condition?

In essence, many of the issues that plague Moorish Americans and are exhibited in our community reflect inadequate economic organization, discipline and the ability to adhere to strucure and chain-of-command which leads the development of new organization or movement. Simply put, this weakens the collective and thus the old saying “divide and conquer.” Once the excitement of the new movement wears off, the commitment is lost. If these two areas became prime targets of reform (organization and discipline), impoverishment of human resources and communal deficiencies would be minimized to a high degree. Just as national debt and national deficits make a country vulnerable and prey to another, while also threatening its power and viability as a nation, and generates social and political conflict (s); Moors, must also recognize how the lack of structure and discipline, deficiencies and imbalances threatens its viability and ability to provide an inheritance to its posterity.

This will best be achieved by Moors beginning the processes of taking an inventory of the diverse skill sets and educational backgrounds, pooling finances and creating a “form” of “rotating credit association” system; however, with distinct differences in how finances are stored, saved and generated. The accumulation of material resources and networking opportunities further contribute toward the development of a cohesive Moorish unit that works together to finance and purchase land and industrial supplies that facilitate the community development process. The concept of “Community as Financier” will dissolve issues of credit, reduce high interest and minimize debt as the collective community work together to make financial decisions through a rational political process. Moors must also learn to create, maintain and serve their own ethno-cultural identity as evidenced by a business minded collective developing and supplying products and services that are unique to the Moorish community. This concept is seen and demonstrated within the Japanese, Chinese and so-called Hispanic communities. Despite their success, you will begun to see large conglomerates like Wal-Mart begin supplying items and foods that cater to specific ethno-cultural tastes and identities which capture the economic wealth that originally was supplied by that demographic. This is one of the many strategic moves to dissolve economic power within the ethno-cultural community of those that practice self reliance. Therefore strategies like this must be countered with smart economic power moves.

Like other ethnic groups that embark on enterprise and communal growth, they first rely on themselves as a source and foundation for growth. Once they achieve independent profitability, a percentage of the wealth is distributed and the next plan of action is decided upon for its growth and socio-political prosperity. This method ensures that the community and family are first taken care of, that the internal economic structure is nurtured and opportunities are created to advance the youth and less fortunate within the community. However, this type of socio-political and economic strategy could only work if there is loyal support and a strong ant-like work ethic that is realized and pursued for the outcome of the greater whole. Once the community is established and Moors are self independent, self reliant and self sufficient, then global ethnic enterprise is the next phase of development. Ethnic enterprise makes your community attractive to others as talks of trade and allied relationships are discussed.

These steps toward political, social and economic power are simple and effective if the current economic resources were to be redirected and funneled toward productive goals and spending habits that build collective wealth. This comprehensive approach would reduce dependent behavior and foster the development and esteem of a productive and genius people. If Asiatics, alone, spend $1.5-2.0 billion annually in the hair care products industry and $1.9 billion annually in the car rim industry, then we know the resources exist for the funding of something that “adds” value and substance.

It is a supreme disgrace for Asiatics, the financiers of the ancient world, to be reduced to accepting handouts and being considered beggars, government leeches and economic liabilities while also demonstrating the harms of conflict amongst and within their own family. Granted, everyone will not accept Moorish Science, Moorish aims and goals, our spiritual philosophies and the understanding of the importance of nationality and social status; but nevertheless, Moors, who have that commonality, must be willing to work within their communal structure as a unified family to bring into fruition the resurrection of the ancient ones buried in this shallow grave in the West. There are no excuses.  Asiatics have always been provided a messenger that brings a message of social and spiritual reform. There is nothing new under the sun. The opportunity will not continue to present itself for the messengers to continue to be ignored, discredited and killed by their own. If Moors are truly prepared for change, desire self independence and are willing to work (together) to gain some level of control over their destiny and future, then accept the challenge, build this Moorish army that live by the principles of Love, Truth, Peace, Freedom and Justice, and demonstrate the genius of our ancestors that left the mighty blueprints for the development of advanced civilization and collective “Self Mastery.”
