The Moorish Science Temple of America (MSTA) is a religious society organized for the purpose of preserving and transmitting the Moorish nationality of its members, along with the divine creed of Islam.
According to all true and divine records of the human race there is no negro, black, or colored race attached to the human family. What your ancient forefathers were, you are today without doubt or contradiction; and there is no one who is able to change man from the descendant nature of his forefathers; unless his power extends beyond the great universal Creator Allah Himself…

Therefore, Act 6. of the MSTA Divine Constitution & Bylaws mandates that all members must proclaim their nationality. Membership eligibility is exclusively reserved to descendants of the ancient Moabites (the Moorish) who were given permission from the Pharaohs of Egypt to settle and inhabit North—West Africa. They were the founders and are the true possessors of the present Moroccan Empire. Membership is also extended to their Canaanite, Hittite, and Amorite brethren who sojourned from the land of Canaan to Northeast and Southwest Africa, seeking new homes.

Their dominion and inhabitation extended from Northeast and Southwest Africa, across great Atlantis, even unto the present North, South, and Central America, and also Mexico and the Atlantis Islands; before the earthquake which caused the great Atlantic Ocean.

Our records preserve the history and migrations of these Afro-Asiatic people. Their descendants include the Afro-Asiatic people known as: the Moorish Americans and Mexicans in North America, Brazilians, Argentines and Chileans in South America; Columbians, Nicaraguans, and the natives of San Salvador in Central America, the Caribbean’s, etc. All of these are Moslems.
