In my 16 years of membership in the Moorish Science Temple of America. I have made the mistake of viewing our great organization from a myopic point of view. Praise Allah for meeting sisters and brothers from all across Moorish-America who have come to realize that no matter who and where we have learned Moorish Science from we need to work together to carry out our prophets mission.
As individual members and leaders in our respective temples, I encourage us to ask ourselves, what are the Basic needs of our nation, Temples, members and the communities around our respective temples? As scientists we can see all of these small system needs have not been met. How can I say this, you ask, because when the basic needs of a system, no matter the size of the system (nation, temples, members or the community), are not adequately addressed it leads to community problems.
I would never give a one sided view of a problem because if there is a problem, then there has to be a solution. The members of the Moorish Science Temple of America are looking for change. We as members of the Moorish Science Temple of America must realize that change is a process of producing modification in our attitudes, policies, and practices for the purpose of reducing, preferably eliminating, problems; providing forums and opportunity for general improvements. Any problem that involves more than one person requires the collective involvement of more people to resolve it.
The Moorish Science Temple of America has reached our 100th year of functioning and I would like to thank forum’s such as Ali’s Men, Moorish Unity Summit, Trek Trough Time, and the Moorish Census for providing such opportunities. Let us move forward in changing our Moorish World.
