El-Rukn Lesson #1
I will give a brief background on the El Rukn’s. As the El Rukn’s are now an “Orthodox Muslim” group, all that needs to be said on their history is that they were originally part of the P-Stone Nation and the Black Stone Rangers street gangs (founded in 1965 by Jeff Fort with Eugene Ibrahim Hairston). They are organized with Ambassadors, Generals, Imams, and Divine Ministers.
The current leader is Jeff Fort (Malik Kaaba El) born in Aberdeen, Mississippi in 1947. Before the FBI destroyed their headquarters in June of 1990, their headquarters was called the Fort, then the Adept Chamber of the El Rukn Moorish Science Mosque, later the El Rukn Sunni Masjid al-Malik, and finally Masjid Malik. This Fort was established as headquarters in 1976. Its opening occurred after Jeff Fort disassociated himself with the P Stone Nation and the Blackstone Rangers. In prison, Fort became a member of the Moorish Science Temple and dissolved the Blackstone Rangers involvement in the P Stone Nation. He hence forth renamed the Rangers the El Rukn Tribe of the Moorish Science Temple. His written legacy to Moorish Science is the “El Rukn Lesson #1”.

“El-Rukn Lesson #1
Salvation UnityToday we gather to understand the total significance and meaning of the Symbolic and illustrious Blackstone. The BlackStone which sits as a Corner-Stone (El-Rukn) in the Holy Kaaba, in the Holy City of Mecca, is merely an emblem to make the world conscious that the Stone, once thought rejected, has now become the Head Stone of the Corner.
It sits as a symbol of the fact that the Ismaelite whom was supposedly been denied — Malik’s birth-right and established the Divine Covenant has ended up the inherent of the Kingdom of the Almighty Father GOD ALLAH.
We speak of none other than the fact that Mohammed ibn Abdul, the founder of the Unity of Islam and a direct descendant of Ismael, did in fact complete his Divine Mission teaching his people and the world their supreme duties and benefits of living at complete peace with Allah. And ones surroundings through the great universal precept of Islam and in order to bear witness to this indisputable and universal fact, it is only necessary for one to view objectively to the great federation of the universal and all comprising Islamic Brother-Hood.
And We the “Chief Malik”, stand this day to witness to the indisputable fact that the Black Stone, here are symbolic to that very same emblem as the world looks on, we who once called ourselves Black-Stone and whom the world viewed as utterly rejected people, has now become the Head-Stone of the Corner, returning back to that state of mind of our Forefathers Ancient and Divine Creed, and resuming our rightful place in the affairs of man and nations.
And in years to come, the world will see a Nation, and Empire resurrected, not from the will of others to see us rise, but with the blessing of our Father GOD ALLAH, and from our own determination to rise, irrespective of what the world thinks. There is no one who is able to change from the descent nature line of his Fore-Fathers unless his power extends beyond that of the Great Universal Creator ALLAH Himself. What our Fore-Fathers were, we are, without a doubt or contradiction, and so with us all members must proclaim their nationality and their Divine Creed that they may know that they are a part and partial of this said government and know that they are not Negroes, Colored Folks, Black People or Ethiopians, because these names were given to slaves by slave holders in 1779 and lasted until 1865 during the time of slavery, but this is a new era of time now and all men must proclaim their free national name to be recognized by the government in which they live and the nations of the Earth. This is the reason why ALLAH the Great GOD of the Universe ordained Noble Drew Ali, the Prophet, to redeem his people from their sinful ways. The Moorish American are the descendants of the Ancient Moabites whom inherited the Northwestern and Southwestern shores of Africa.
The Moors did not ask for social equality in the form of integration with the European Nations, because we, a clean and pure nation descendant from the inhabitants of Africa, do not desire to amalgamate or marry into the families of the pale skin nations of Europe. Neither serve the gods of their religion because our forefathers are the true and divine founders of the first religious creed, for the redemption and salvation of mankind on Earth.
All Praise Due to ALLAH Great GOD of the Universe.
Your Brother in LOVE, TRUTH, PEACE, FREEDOM, AND JUSTICE
