This is one of themost elusive questions that stumpstodaysMoor.IsaytodaysMoorbecause it was not up until recently that our people are slowly waking up to the fact that they are Moors, an ancestry that runs all the way back to the first man. This was all done by a divine plan. Prophet NobleDrewAlisaidIfIwokealltheAsiaticsupatonce,Iwouldnotknowwhattodowith you myselfand sothis wasa divine plan of a seed that was planted in 1913whenthe Prophet firstappearedbackonthisland.ProphetConfuciussaidthis: If you think in terms of a year,plant a seed if in terms of ten years, plant trees ifin terms of 100years,teachthepeople. It has been approximately 100 years since our Prophet, NobleDrewAli, came and planted the seed of knowledge about our true identity and our birthrights as Moors, who were the ancient Moabites of the ancientland of Canaan. Since his coming, movements like the Nation of Islam, the 5%ers commonly known as the Nation of Gods and Earths, and other Islamic groups have sprung up teaching a more reformed version of Islam than that of the Mohammedans of 1400 years ago. This seed was planted by Noble Drew Ali and it has been 100 years and the timeis nowtoreapthefruitofthattree. According to the online etymological dictionary,whichisacompositeof21differentsources,we readthisfortheetymologyofthenameMoor: Moor "North African, Berber," late14c., from O.Fr. More,fromM.L. Morus,fromL. Maurus"inhabitant of Mauritania" (northwest Africa, a region now corresponding to northern Algeria and Morocco), from Gk. Mauros, perhapsanativename,orelsecognatewithmauros"black"(butthisadjective only appears in lateGreek and may as well be from thepeople'snameasthereverse).Beinga dark people in relation toEuropeans, their name in theMiddleAgeswasasynonymfor"Negro" later (16c.17c.) used indiscriminately of Muslims (Persians, Arabs, etc.) but especiallythosein India. Many falselybelieveMoortomeanblack.Whenproventhatitdoesnotmeanblack,astheabove etymology shows you, theywill thengo on to saywellthe Moorswereablackpeople.Butthis, as the etymology showsus above, only appearsintheAlexandrianorKoine(lateGreek)dialect. There is no such thing as a black peopleandjust bylookingatyourskinalone,ortheskinof the

peoplewhoarecalledblackpeople,youwillseewithyourowneyesthatitisnotblack. The Christian European writers wouldalwayscallourpeoplesblackafterthisperiodbutbefore this time, we were all known as Moors, just having different tribal names and cultures,but we wereallMoors. Before Africa was called such, it was called Libya because the first and true recorded Libyans were in fact dark skinned woolly haired Moors. Libyans were called Moors in the book The Cambridgeancienthistory:TheHighEmpire,A.D.70192[1] If you notice the second definition in the etymon, the name Moor also means Berber which is one of our ancient race names as well. In the Negro Laws of SouthCarolina of 1839 reads as such: "ThetermNegroisconfinedtoslaveAfricans(AncientBerbers)andtheirdescendants."[2] So it is obviously clear that a Moor is indeed a Berber as the second definitionof Moor in the etymon shows us above. The Europeans tried to use those Moors whom were bound by treaties, as a separate people from those Moors whom they knew in theirhistorical records as Berbers that mainly lived upon the Southwestern shores of Africa. These are the ancient Moabites who travelled from Canaan to establish empires in Northwestern and Southwestern Africa. We find the name Moor, in reference to whom the Greeks called Ethiopians mentioned in ancient records of the Chaldeans (Babylonians) under the name Mirukh.[3] TheHindus knew our ancient fathers by the name Meru.[4] The Greeks knew our ancient ancestors as the Meropes.[5] And the Egyptians, who kept the best records, recorded themselves as TAMERAU[6] with the au denoting plurality as in the name of the people collectively. We can safely assumethattheukhinMirukh,theuinMeruandthe opesinMeropes,ismerelythere inthatancientvernaculartorepresentplurality.

Early scholars have intimated that all of these different variations ofthese people, are one and the same, including Meroe[7], which was founded by our Cushitic ancestorsinthe25thdynasty and as you can clearly see, the real and true name for Egypt is Mer (i) which is undoubtedly another variation of the word we have now as Moor. These are theSons of Godor theBeni ElohimTheSaba(seven)who became the famedSabiansof olddescribed in scriptures from the most remotest times thatspeaks ofthe people of Meru who descendedfromthisplacethat had a mystical mountain where the GodEldwelt, thought now to be located on the Island of Meropes of the famed Atlantis Islands. This is what a Moor is, the first person/people on the planet and it is the reason why Christians gave to our people the name black and when all adherents of Islam began to be labeled as Moors, they specifically called the Moabites, BlackaMoors. But we have resurrected and we know who we are now and will not stop until this false designation of black is wiped from the records identifying our people from this point forward. It was the Moors who brought light to the world when they accepted theMohammedan religion which taught Islam. They thenwent to Europe. When Europe wasdark and gloomy, the Moors had street lights in Seville Spain 600 years before the Europeans had them. In the city of Cordova, the Moors had 471 mosques, and 300 public baths and the number of houses of the great and noble were 63,000 and 200, 077houses ofthecommonpeople.Therewereupwards of 80,000 shops.Waterfromthe mountains was distributed througheverycornerandquarterof the city by means of leaden pipes into basins of different shapes, made of the purest gold, the finest silver or plated brass as well into vast lakes, curious tanks, amazing reservoirs and

fountains of Grecian marble." The houses in Cordova were air conditioned in the summer by "ingeniously arranged draughts of fresh air drawn from the gardenoverbedsofflowers,chosen for their perfume, warmed in winter by hot air conveyed through pipes bedded in the walls. Bathrooms supplied hot and cold water and there were tables of gold, set withemeraldsrubies and pearls. This list of impressive works appears endless it includes lampposts that lit their streets at night, to grand palaces, such as the one called Azzahra with its 15,000 doors. Renaissance menlikeZaryab,amultigenius,wasthefirsttodesigndifferentclothingcolorsand patternsfordifferentseasons."[8] It was the Moors that first instituted religious freedoms in other lands. They encouraged, supported, but also enhanced the arts and sciences. The Moors brought a renaissance in knowledge as the wisdom of the ancient cultures was relearned through the works of the Greeks, Hebrews,Chinese,Persians,translatingallintoArabic.The Moorswerethefirsttotrace the curvilinear path of light through the air. They achieved advancesin chemistry including the invention of gunpowder. They found new discoveries in Astronomy and on the nature of the earth. The invention of theAstrolabe and the compass is accredited to the Moors. The medical use of vivisection and dissection. The Moors hadhundredsofwomannursesandsurgeonsand were notconstrainedlikeweseeinsomecultures,evensomeotherIslamiccultures.TheMoors are accredited withthe creation of hospitalswithrunningwaterandthewidespreadconstruction of baths. ChristianEurope held this rite of bathing in contemptfor centuries. Thats right, itwas literally against the law to bathe in Europe! We established numerous fabulous gardens. The Moors were the firsttoestablishlatrines(toilets)withrunningwaterhundredsofyearsbeforethe rest of Europe. We had Paved streets and street lights much like you see today. We built numerousbookstoresandhadahighlyliteratepopulace. The Moors also took interior decoration to new heights in elaborate building ideas. This compares with the rest of Europe where most structures were barren, artlesshulkswithoutthe minimumofutilitiesevenforhygiene. Education There were numerousschoolsandplacesoflearning inMoorish AlAndalusia(Spain).Beginning withthe UniversityofCordoba,othergreatinstitutionswerebuiltin Seville,Valencia,Mallargaand Granada. Like the ancient Greeks under the Egyptians,severalofthemostprominentEuropean Catholic scholars studied under the African Moors in their institutions in Spain. The Moors translated all great works they could lay their hands on from the ancients into Arabic. This included the knowledge of Egypt,Kush,India, ChinaandtheGreece.Westernhistorianspoint to the Greek component of these documents and attempt to paintthe Moors as merelyborrowers

of Greek intellectual culture. This ignores the fact that Greek knowledge comes directly from Ancient Egypt and that there is convincing evidence that the Moors already possessed similar knowledge of their own from their homelands. But this was not onlylimited to higher education. The Moors promoted literacy and the advancement of the general population. Schools were everywhere,manyofthemfreeofcharge. Medicine Again, far in advance of Western Europe, Moorish physicians were specially trainedand highly regulated. They practiced surgery and cauterization and understood the importance of cleanlinessintheoperatingenvironment. The eminent scholar on Moorish history, Jose PimientaBey, notes in Golden Age of the Moor (pg.211): "Europeans offered no competition with Moorish advances in pathology, etiology (study of diseases), therapeutics, surgery and pharmacology. Texts were written by Moorish physicians describing surgical technique and instruments that wereuseddoctorsspecializedinpediatrics, obstetrics, ophthalmology, and in the treatment of hernias and tumors. Imamuddin tells us that Moorish scientists were evenimportingmonkeyskeletonsfromAfricafor useindissectionwhen conditionspreventedtheuseofcadavers." For the Andalusian Moor, scholarly endeavor was considered divine. The more one knew of one's self and one's World, the more one was supposed to know of one'sCreator.Theancient creed "Know Thyself" was very much the creed of Andalusia. Rulers such as the Caliph Abd alRahman III, spent almost onethird of the state's income on education. At a time when most Christian monarchs could not even write their own names, the Caliphs of MoorishSpain were oftenscholars. The works of a number of Moorishsavants were revered, translatedandbecamerequiredtexts in the universities which later developed in Europe. These include Generalities on Medicine by Averroes, Solitary Regime by Avempace, Primus Canonis by Avicenna and AlTasrif, by Abulcasis,whichbecamethepredominantuniversitymedicaltextforEurope'sphysicians. Science It was the Moorish chemists such as Jabir who discovered nitric, nitromuriatic and sulphuric acid.TheywerewellversedinthesciencewellbeforeEurope.

Jose PimientaBey notesthe proximity of the founding dates ofthe major Europeanuniversities to the translations of Moorish works by rulers such as Alfonso X of Spain. These centers of learningreliedprimarilyonMoorishtextsforcenturies This is who you are, you areMoorsandyouadoptedeveryothertribeandnationintoyournation and taught civilization tothe world.

It is time to unlock yourinner deityand rise up to be your higherself and this is the sole purpose of the Moorish Science Temple of America where one can go to proclaim their nationality and become one with their higher selves because it is a sin to not live up to the constitutionalstandards of the government in which you live and until youdoso,youwillforever beunderthemindcontrolofapeoplewhodonothaveyourbestinterestsatheart. Today The Moors or the Moabites are rising again. Those Nobles who are the founders of the worlds first civilization and divine creed are once again bringing the lost light back to the people of Moorish descent and the restoftheAsiaticnationsinthiswesternhemisphere.Whatwedo,our success, will be the blueprint of the uplifting of fallen humanit the world over.
