Civics or civic education is the study of the theoretical, political, and practical aspects of citizenship, as well as its rights and duties. It includes the study of civil law and civil code, and the study of government with attention to the role of world citizens as opposed to external factors in the operation of government.

Greetings Global Civilian
Message from the Temple Secretary
Civic virtue is the cultivation of habits important for the success of the community. Closely linked to the concept of citizenship, civic virtue is often conceived as the dedication of citizens to the common welfare of their community even at the cost of their individual interests. The identification of the character traits that constitute civic virtue has been a major concern of political philosophy. The term civility refers to behavior between persons and groups that conforms to a social
Citizens acting alone or together to protect public values or make a change or difference in the community are common types of civic engagement. Civic engagement includes communities working together in both political and non-political actions. The goal of civic engagement is to address public concerns and promote the quality of the community.
Civic Engagement “is a process in which people take collective action to address issues of public concern” and is absolutely “instrumental to democracy” (Checkoway & Aldana, 2012). Underrepresentation of groups in the government causes issues faced by groups such as minority, low-income, and younger groups to be overlooked or ignored. In turn, issues for higher voting groups are addressed more frequently causing more bills to be passed to fix these problems (Griffin & Newman, 2008). Civic nationhood is a political identity built around shared citizenship within the state. Thus, a "civic nation" isn't defined by its language or culture, but by its political institutions and liberal principles, which its citizens pledge to uphold. Membership in the civic nation is open to anyone who shares these values. In theory, a civic nation or state does not aim to promote one culture over another. World government was an aspiration of ancient rulers as early as the Bronze Age (3300 BCE to 1200); Egyptian kings aimed to rule "All That the Sun Encircles", Mesopotamian kings "All from the Sunrise to the Sunset", and ancient Chinese and Japanese emperors "All under Heaven". The Chinese had a particularly well-developed notion of world government in the form of Great Unity, or Da Yitong (大同), a Utopian vision for a united and just society bound by moral virtue and principles of good governance. The Han dynasty, which successfully united much of China for over four centuries, evidently aspired to this vision by erecting an Altar of the Great Unity in 113 BC.
THE NATURALIZATION INSTRUCTIONS
Holy Koran of Mecca Sura LXII Ayat 9-10.
Friday is the Holy Day “O ye who know! When the call is proclaimed to supplication on Friday, the day of Assembly, hasten earnestly to the remembrance of the Heavenly Father and Divine Mother, and leave off business and traffic: That is best for you if ye but knew! And when prayer is finished, then may ye disperse through the land, and seek the bounty of God: and celebrate the praises of God of ten and without stint: that ye may prosper.”
“All Chaplaincy Temple Services & Meetings are to be opened and closed promptly according to the Circle Seven and Love, Truth, Peace, Freedom, and Justice. Friday is our Holy Day of rest because on a Friday the first man was formed in flesh, and on a Friday the first man departed out of flesh and ascended unto his Father God Allah. For that cause, Friday is our Holy Day for all Moslems and peacemakers all over the world.” This is according to Act 2. Of the Divine Constitution and By-laws by the Prophet, Noble Drew Ali which states all Temples and Subordinate Temples are to conduct Holy Day service every Friday starting promptly at their respective time and ending promptly at their respective time. All civilians, patrons, denizens, prospects, and ministers are expected to attend the Temple for the Friday “Holy Day Temple Service & Meeting”. On Friday’s the Moorish American, Moorish Asian, and Moorish African Moslems and Peacemakers all come together to supplicate and to illustrate that which Allah has blessed them with. The temple services are open according to divine Love, Truth, Peace, Freedom, and Justice. At no time will Templist, adepts, ministers, patrons, or outside congregational guests be allowed to disrupt the Holy Day Service, nor will civilians be admitted under the influence of alcohol or any severe intoxicants. All Templist, Adepts, and civilians attending the Holy Days service must have their heads covered with either a Turban, Fez, or Kufi or spiritual covering. Baseball caps should not be worn in the Temple. The Sunday school Temple Service & Meeting is mandatory and “All Moorish Nationals, Templist, and Temple Denizens must promptly attend the temple service and send their children to the Sunday School Gatherings and the teacher must conform himself and herself to the Temple's 101's questionnaire, and let every civilian man, woman, and child, exercise his or her five senses who is able to do so because out from your Sunday School comes the guiders of the nation and now the entire global village.”
According to Act 5. Of the Additional laws by the Prophet Noble Drew Ali, every Subordinate Temple should have two Sunday School Gatherings held. The first meeting should be held 1 to 2 hours before the Adult Service. Children’s Sunday school should be conducted by a Director of the Children’s Sunday School and programs. The Sunday school gathering is designed to assist the temple in learning the Temple 101 questionnaires and developing an understanding of just what these holy keys mean, and how they are to be applied to our everyday lives. The Divine Constitution and By-laws, along with the Moorish Prayer, the Holy Covenant of the Asiatic Nation, El's Holy Injiyl, El's Holy Quraan, and the Civics Lessons of the Holy Temple of Moorish Science are also subjects of major concern for the apprentice who is trying to complete his or her mandatory requirements for pronouncing their Temple Civilianship and Global Nationality. All lessons for the Adult Sunday School Gathering must be prepared by a Grand Sheik, a Divine Minister, or an Assistant Grand Sheik. Lessons called by us Novites "additions" may be submitted to the apprentice for completion and returned to the Temple. Once the Lessons are completed and graded, they must be placed in the active member's Temple District file. The Sunday School Temple Service & Meeting is a wonderful opportunity to study the liturgy teachings of the Prophet. No civilian is to become disruptive during the Sunday meeting. All Templist must bring paper and pen to the temple service and meeting along with the basic Temple Literature and assignments. No Templist or patron is to eat food or other snacks during the temple service or meeting, but water is permitted. All Templist must attend their Sunday Temple Service and Meetings as diligently as they attend their Holy Day Temple Service & Meeting; both were called out for by the Prophet Noble Drew Ali and is required as a matter of Temple law. According to the Divine Constitution Act 7 in part, All Templist must promptly attend their temple services and meetings and become a part and partial of all uplifting acts of the Moorish Science Temple of America and now also Moorish Science Temple of Africa, and Moorish Science Temple of Asia and enjoining World Islands on behalf all indigenous peoples.
For Membership, any “Heads of Temple" of all Temple Jurisdictions are not to charge for naturalization or to overcharge for cards, buttons, or anything issued by and through the Prophet. Those who contribute to any of the proceedings are not Moors, civilians, or patrons but robbers. Temple Nationality and membership in the Holy Temple's Vast Estate (Public Beneficiary Trust) Sisters and Brothers, Kin, and Kinfolk, is free, not only here but all over the world. All Kin, and Kinfolk, desiring to become a civilian of a Subordinate Temple must read the message from the Temple Secretary and download the application for Naturalization found here on Holytemples.org.
The Secretary of the Temple's Jurisdiction will help all newcomers by explaining the naturalization affidavit and application for membership in the Temple's Vast Estate (Public Beneficiary Trust) to the new perspective civilians of the Temple's Vast Estate (Public Beneficiary Trust) and arranging for him or her to be consulted by the Royal Council of said Temple or Subordinate Temple. The Royal Chairman or women will set the date for the new Temple Prospect to be interviewed by the Royal Council.
The new temple court civilian upon completion of the Royal Council’s consultation at the Newcomers Gathering (Sunday School Gathering) on Sunday, the new Templist will proclaim their temple nationality at the next upcoming Holy Day Temple Gathering. After the new civilian prospect proclaims his or her nationality, they will be given the mandatory requirements necessary to earn their free national name and royal title of nobility as a True American Royal. These requirements are as follows and in accordance with Chapter 47 of the Moorish Circle Seven Holy Koran; called Egypt The Capital Dominion Empire of Africa, The Moorish Prayer, Chapter 25 of The Moorish Koran; called the Holy Covenant of the Asiatic Nation, including The 101 Koran Questions for Moorish Americans, Asians, and Africans, The Divine Constitution, and By-laws, the Additional Laws, and the precepts, statues, and ordinances from El's Holy Torah, El's Holy Injiyl, El's Holy Quraan, the Holy Tabernacle Family Guide and also the Holy Tablets through our Civics 101 Course in the Global Interdependent School District and Sacred Halls of Learning called Nu University for every one of the Global Village. Once a new civilian or Templist has learned these additions or lessons verbatim, or to the best of their ability, he or she will be interviewed by the Temple's Royal Council as the Chaplaincy to determine if the new civilian is qualified to represent himself or herself as a faithful Moorish American, Moorish African, and Moorish Asian Moslem or any Indigenous Peacemaker. And communicate it to the ignorant for their instructions and communicate it to the wise for thine own improvement. Once the new civilian or Templist has cleared the mandatory requirements with the Royal Council, he or she will be naturalized by the Grand Sheik and Divine Minister of said Subordinate Temple.
Exceptions to the Mandatory Requirements Law
It should be understood that there are exceptions to the mandatory requirement law. If a new civilian is not mentally capable of learning to retain information and recite it, he or she should be declared exempt by the Royal Council. If the prospect has a history of learning disabilities or other psychological problems that could preclude him or her from learning the mandatory requirements, that member should be declared exempt by the Royal Council. New civilians or Templist who have physical conditions that could result in agonizing pain and muscle dysfunction such as Muscular Dystrophy and any other medical diagnosis that could impede one's ability to retain and recite information stored in the psychological retrieval system, that new prospect who suffers severe speech impediments should be declared medically exempt. Terminally ill patients who proclaim their nationality before the onset of death should be declared exempt by the Royal Council. New civilians or Templist who suffer severe speech impediments should be declared exempt by the Royal Council. The Royal Council reserves the right to waive the mandatory requirements on any new member who it feels will impose such a burden as to discourage that member from proclaiming his or her nationality. Such a waiver must be imposed by virtue of a unanimous vote. The only exception to the Exception Rule is the written order of the National Grand Sheik and the National Grand Body.
The Holy Shahadah
The Proclamation of Nationality procedure and pronunciation of one’s Nationality will be held on Holy Day for all Civilians, Denizens, Templist Peacemakers, or Moslems all over the world. During the ceremony, the new civilian or Templist will be ordained an “El, Bey, or Dey,” and given his or her royal peerage title of Kin, Honorable, Lady, Noble, Nin, Nayya, Prince, or Princess, by a Grand Sheik and or Divine Minister and also receive his or her Nationality Card and button from the Divine Minister of the Grand Major Temple. Upon conclusion of the Nationality Proclamation, the Grand Sheik and Divine Minister will have the civilian, Templist, and temple prospect stand while he or she reads the “Authority” of the Moorish Science Temple of America. It is by virtue of the Religious Corporation Act document that can be found in Hurd’s Revised Statutes that gives the Moorish Science Temple of America, Asia, and Africa the Authority to restore the nationality and birthrights of the lost Asiatics of America, Asia, Africa, and all World Islands and give them the title to their vast estate and their heritage. The Grand Sheik and or Divine Minister is to read from the card, and have the new national, state “Allah is God, and Noble Drew Ali the Prophet, and I am Moorish American, African, or Asian and or World Islander. This is our Moorish Clarification of Faith or Shahadah and our National Pledge of Allegiance. The new civilian or Templist “free national name” should then be added to the Temple’s book of life as they enroll in the Civic's 101 Course and World Civic's Club. The Nationality ceremony should be conducted by the Grand Sheik and Divine Minister, or any other Divine Minister so designated by the Grand Sheik and Divine Minister in his or her time of absence and most notably by the Assistant Grand Sheik and Divine Minister. The Nationality Card and Naturalization application must be signed bearing the name and title of the Grand Sheik or Divine Minster who issued the application and card, and the date of its issuance.
The Religious Corporation Act has deemed the Global Interdependent School District and the Incorporated and Chartered Moorish Science Temple of America, Africa, and Asia as a Religious Trust and Theocratic Government established in 1928 on August 20th. This Religious Trust is the true Global Trusteeship System for the Holy Family of Nations forming the Global Noocracy.
