Moors – Defending Moorish Islam

The True and Divine Creed of Islam
by Brother A. Hopkins-Bey, D.M.
At the outset, this author intends to be clear and unambiguous as to the foundation and underpinnings of this work. This book is based solely on the pure, perfect, and pristine teachings of Islam as expressed via the Divinely Guided Prophets of God-Allah.
“…And whoever judges not by what Allah has revealed, those are the disbelievers.”1
The information in this book is not based upon any particular culture, civilization, or society; for the True and Divine Creed of Islam transcends all cultures, civilizations or societies. Islam is the true nature and essence of mankind. Allah says that Islam is…
“…the nature made by Allah in which he has created men…”2
One main dilemma is our contemporary society is the general inability to distinguish the True and Divine Creed of Islam from the mere ideas of men. This is so due the fact that there are scores groups and factions who have contrived pseudo-Islamic ideologies which is not based upon the doctrines of the True and Divine Creed of Islam, on the contrary, it is based upon pagan, archaic, and antiquated pre-Islamic Arab thought processes. Allah has warned us in the Quran about the primitive dessert Arab, and He also informs us of how they will be dealt.
“The desert Arabs are the hardest in disbelief and hypocrisy, and most disposed not to know the limits of what Allah has revealed to His messenger. And Allah is Knowing, Wise.”3
“And of those around you of the desert Arab, they are hypocrites; and of the people of Medina (also)- they persist in hypocrisy. Thou knowest them not; We know them. We will chastise them twice, then they will be turned back to a grievous chastisement.”4
We have reached a time of jahiliyya (ignorance) among the Moslems, so much so that the Truth has become a commodity and Falsehood has become the norm. Although there are many who exploit the faith of Islam via there explosive, cruel, and horrid rhetoric; it is a great mistake to associate Islam with the misdeeds of such men. It must properly understood that albeit some may not live according to the standards of a particular religion, the standards of that religion remain in tact. That being stated, one cannot judge a religion by way of the conduct and actions of its followers.
“The fault is not in truth, for that is amiable; but the weakness of man beareth not its splendor.”5
