Guidance for our rulings are from:

  1. Divine Laws of the Holy Quran of Mohammed (hereinafter, ‘Holy Quran’)
  2. Divine Laws of the Old Testament (Torah), and the Gospels (Injeel)
  3. Holy Koran of the Moorish Science Temple (hereinafter, ‘Moorish Koran’)


Our Prophet, Drew Ali, instructed us to unite the Moorish Koran with the Holy Quran “for teaching and instructing all Moorish Americans, etc”. This is because the Moorish Koran was divinely prepared by Prophet Drew Ali to teach and instruct Moorish Americans their forefathers approach to Islam (which they had been cut-off from), and it also contains eighteen years of the life and Gospels (Injeel) of Prophet Jesus, which are missing from the Holy Bible. The Holy Quran confirms the Gospels (Injeel) of Jesus as being “a guidance”, “a light”, and “an admonition unto those who ward off evil” (Quran 5:46). Therefore, these missing gospels are a guidance and a light to all Moslems, all over the world.

48. And unto thee have We revealed the Scripture with the truth, confirming whatever Scripture was before it, and a watcher over it. So judge between them by that which Allah hath revealed, and follow not their desires away from the truth which hath come unto thee. For each (nation) We have appointed a divine law and a traced-out way. Had Allah willed He could have made you one community (nation). But (he did not), so that He may test you in what He hath given to you. Strive, then, to excel each other in good deeds. Unto Allah is the return for all of you. Then Allah shall tell you about that wherein ye disputed… Quran 5:48

67. O Messenger! Proclaim (the Message) which has been sent down to you from your Lord. And if you do not, then you have not conveyed His Message. Allah will protect you from mankind. Verily, Allah guides not the people who disbelieve.
68. Say (O Messenger): “O people of the Scripture! You have nothing (as regards guidance) till you act according to the Taurat (Torah), the Injeel (Gospel), and what has (now) been sent down to you from your Lord (the Quran).” Verily, that which has been sent down to you from your Lord increases in many of them their obstinate rebellion and disbelief. So be not sorrowful over the people who disbelieve.
69. Surely, those who believe (‘amanoo’), and those who are Jews, and the Sabians, and the Christians – whoever believes in Allah and the Last Day, and acts righteously, shall have no fear, nor shall such people grieve. — Quran 5:67-69
