In the House of Representatives, April 17, 1933.
Many sons and daughters of that proud and handsome race which inspired the

In the City of Philadelphia there exists a Moorish-American Society made
up of Moors who have found here the end of their quest for a home and of
the children of those who journeyed here from the plains of Morrocco.
This Society has done much to bring about a thorough absorption by these
people of those principles which are necessary to make them good American

and name annexations that were so familiar at home and which are used in
accordance with the doctrines of the religious faith to which they are adherents

for the eficient service it has rendered the Nation in bringing about a speedy
and thorough Americanization of these former Moors and that in accordance
with the fullest right of religious independence guaranteed every citizen

NOTICE TO: All Moorish American, Etc.
SubJ: Moors, "Blacks" and "African-Americans" Real Economic Empowerment through
the Express Trust Being Presently Performed.
From: Frank Lewis El Bey, Trustee
Date: January 8, 1999
May this notice greet yo well and wakeful. For the wakeful die no; whereas
those who are heedless are as if dead already. If you are not aware, this
notice is to make you aware of the said trust existence, its' benefits to
you; and, to invite you to participate in its performance.
1. As Moorish-Americans "Blacks", or "African -Americans", are the primary
beneficiary of an extremely extensive fee simple estate conveyed to us in
an express trust that wass duly created in 1928, by the trustor, Noble Drew
Ali, for our economical, political and social redemption and regeneration.
The said trust was (duly) created in conjunction with the Statute of Frauds
and Perjuries and the Parol Evidence Rule, and the legal requirements of
the state of Illinois, pursuant to the laws and Constitution of the United
States. That is to say, the said trust was lawfully created and is readily
2. The land, or fee simple estate, actually conveyed to us in the express
trust is a legacy of our forefathers -- our birthright. According to the
deed of conveyance, it comprises the entire continental United States among
other territories. it was put in the legal institution know as an express
trust to safeguard it, and thereby duly conveyed to us.
3. I am the duly appointed trustee. I have actual possession of the title-deed
thereto. And, accordingly, I, as trsutee, have initiated the express trust
performance. An important legal phase of the trust performance is presently
before the (State of) Maryland Court of Special Appeal. Case No. CAL
4. Examine the accompanying pretrial statement filed in the case by the trustee
July 22, 1998; therein are described some of the primary issues tried before
the court December 17, 1998; issues related directly to you as a
Moorish-American, "Black", "African-American", etc.
5. This is important to us; not only because it is our social security for
the 21st century; it is who we are; it's our vast estate; our divine destiny;
it's GOD'S WILL.
CHARACTERISTICS OF OUR VASTE STATE
1. The quantity of the estate the Prophet Noble Drew Ali as trustor put in
the express trust he created for the Moors in 1928 is a fee simple estate;
sometimes called a fee simple absolute.
2. The term "fee simple" defines the largest estate in land known to the
law and necessarily implies absolute dominion over the land. There can be
only one estate in fee simple to a a particular tract of land.
2a. An estate in fee simple may be had either in corporeal or incorporeal
hereditaments. A grant of the fee simple, however, carries with it everything
within or belonging to the land, in the absence of exception or
2b. Since an estate in fee simple implies absolute sovereignty over the land,
the power of alienation is necessarily and inseparably incidental thereto,
and an unlimited condition of restraint of alienation attached to such an
estate is void.
2c. In some jurisdiction the definition of a fee simple estate is statutory.
Some of the authorities define the estate from the standpoint of defining
the owner or holder thereof, and likewise disclose the unlimited duration
of a fee simle interest by stating that a tenant in fee simple is one who
has lands or tenements to hold to him and his heirs forever. 28 Am Jur 2d,
Sec. 10, p.82.
2d. In the United States the common-law rule requiring words of inheritance
in a conveyance to pass a fee simple has never been applied to conveyance
to a trustee. The estate taken by a trustee is measured by the trust, and
not by the presence or absence of words of inheritance. Hence in any particular
grant to a trustee if a fee simple title is necessary to the performance
of the trust, a fee simple passes, even though the word "heirs" was not used
in the conveyance. DeHaven v. Sherman, 131 Ill 115, 22 NE 711. Also, see
28 Am Jur 2d, sec. 15, p. 91.
IN THE UNITED STATES
3. Except in one or two states, property in the various American jurisdiction,
by virtue of state constitutional provision, organic-territorial acts
incorporated into the legal systems of states subsequently organized, statutes,
and decisions of the courts, is determined to be held allodially, in absolute
and direct dominion, subject only to escheat in the event of failure of
successors in ownership. Feudal tenures do not and cannot exist. As the Supreme
Court has held: the holding of real property by the owner in fee simple in
this country is from the state as chief lord or lord paramount. United states
v. DeRepentigny, 5 Wall US 211, 18 L ed 627. Also, see 28 Am Jur 2d, Sec.
4, p. 74.
4. After the Prophet created the express trust, he then held the meeting
and at that meeting, he told the Moors: "I brought you everything it takes
to save a nation, take it and save yourself (in which he was holding up the
Moorish Holy Koran" and "Our Authority".) At that time our rights to the
land had duly vested in us.
4a. A vested right, within the meaning of the provision that vested rights
are within the protection of constitutional guaranties, has been defined
as "an immediate fixed right of present enjoyment, or a present fixed right
of future enjoyment".
4b. A right is "vested" when there is an ascertained person with a present
right to present or future enjoyment.
4c. If a right in property is actually vested, constitutional guaranties
protect it from such retrospective legislation as would impair it. 28 Am
Jur 2d, Sec. 6, p.76.
5. Inasmuch as ejectment is a possessory action, the plaintiff must show
a right of posession that is present or immediate, as well as a legal estate
in the property sought to be recovered; and unless both facts are established,
the defendant must prevail. Anything which deprives a plaintiff of his present
right to possession will deprive him of the remedy of ejectment.
5a. The right of entry, not the entry itself--the right of posession, not
actual posession--are the essentials of an action in ejectment. Ewert v.
Robinson (CA8) 289 F 740, 35 ALR 219. Also, see 25 Am Jur 2d, sec. 45, p.
EJECTMENT OR POSSESSORY ACTION;
6. Generally speaking, whatever show that the plaintiff is not entitled to
the immediate possession of the premises claimed constitutes a good and valid
defense in an action to recover possession.
5a. Rightful possession is a defense in ejectment. Bradley v. Lightcap, 195
US 1, 49 L ed 65, 24 S ct 748.
5b. Since the plaintiff in an action of ejectment must, as a general rule,
recover, if a recovery may be had, on the strength of his own title, and
not from the weakness or want of title of his adversary, the defendant, unless
estopped from controverting the plaintiff's title, may rest on his possession
and attack the title under which the plaintiff claims. Smith v. McCann (US)
2 How 398, 16 L ed 714. Also, see 25 Am Jur 2d sec. 57, p. 579.
7. The defendant in jectment can never defend his possession against the
plaintiff upon a title in himself by which he could not recover the possesion
if he was out and the plaintiff in posesssion. Hickey v. Stewart (US) 3 How
750. 11L ed 814. Where one in the actual posession of property defends his
right of posession upon the ground that the government, state or national,
has placed him in possession, he must show that the right of the government
is paramount to the right of plaintiff otherwise judgment will go against
him. Scranton v. Wheeler, 113 Mich 565, 71 NW 1091, affd 179 US 141, 45 L
ed 126, 21 S Ct 48. Also, see 25 Am Jur 2d sec. 22, p. 556.
8. In accordance with the rule that courts of law take no cognizance of equitable
estates and deal only with legal titles, it is held that in the absence of
statute to the contrary, the plaintiff in an action of ejectment or other
similar action must, whenever the action depends upon the title, and not
upon some relation or agreement between the parties affecting the right of
possession, have a legal title to the property the possession of himself
cannot avail as a basis for recovery. If the plaintiff has only equities,
they must be presented and considered on the equity side of the court. The
legal title is all that is in issue, and such title, when ascertained, whether
in the plaintiff or in the defendant, draws to it the judgment of the court.

JANUARY 11, 1999 MEMORANDUM
FROM: Frank Lewis El Bey, Trustee
SUBJECT: HOW WE BENEFIT FROM THE EXPRESS TRUST PERFORMANCE AND HOW YOUCAN
PARTICIPATE IN THE SAID TRUST PERFORMANCE.
1. Performance of the Express Trust benefits you as an individual by empowering
us, or the African-American Community, economically. Specifically, the fee
simple estate conveyed to us describedin the express trust is a legacy of
ouor forefather -- our birthright, our sacred heritage. Performance of the
said trust gives us, "without protracted delay", the wherewithal to make
us a very powerful independent economic and political force within this country
and among the nations of the earth.
2. As the trust is performed, that is, as we take the trust property into
our actual physical custody and possession, that correspondingly redistributes
the country's wealth, concentrating the real wealth into the hands of our
people, its true owners; that enhances our economic condition individually
and as a community or people. And I assure you, this is an irreversible action;
the express trust and its performance discussed herein are profoundly interwoven
into the legal and political fabric of America.
3. Although there are many others, the following is just some of the reasons
that make the trust performance timely, unique and especially fitting; First,
it's a "Black peoples" creation; it has an independent monetary generating
capacity that's inestimable in dollar value; in impacting the macro-economy,
it doesnt just produce jobs but creates a positive relationship, actually
a mutual partnership, with government and industry (the private sector generally)
to provide countless business, employment, career, educational and other
opportunities for "Blacks" otherwise not only unavailable but presently
unimaginable. Think about taht!
4. Enriching us, it changes "Blacks", or African-American attitude, prespective
dn expectation, and accordingly inspires our spiritual and moral regeneration
and social elevation as a people, and this dynamic individual and community
transformation profoundly impacts the country generally.
5. It cause all people, especially Americans; the Government of the United
States; all States Governemnt; all institutions in the UJnited States, etc.
to take a new attitude toward "Blacks" and their new economic empowerment.
6. Like no other action or undertaking by "Blacks" up to now, the said trust
performance gives us a soudn local, national and international foundation
for unity, a plan and program to sustain it and the opportunity and means
of changing the present course of history by industriously working for economic
self-sufficiency on a scale never before attempted by "Blacks".
7. The express trust is a plan and a program that actually redeem, enlighten,
empower and invigorate the "Black race", including, ransoming them from their
incessant dependence on others which has been the race's standing disgrace,
by which we have created the strongest prejudice against ourselves.
Simultaneously, it regenerates and strengthens America and bestow great blessing
upon mankind for ourselves and posterity.
8. These things are destined to profoundly impact the District and its
surrounding communities and other cities and their surrounding communities
in countless ways. Think about the career, educational and business opportunities
and possibilities this will generate in and for this city. The wealth it
will convey and the new political reality it will naturally engendere. As
indicated, because of its scope and extent, the ramifications of the trust
performance cannot be toldin words nevertheless all Americans will be profoundly
impacted by its awesomoe, far reaching effects. This is our divine destiny.
Therefore, assist the trustee morally and financially in this great
9. As a member or constituencyof the community, I (the trustee) am hereby
applying for your support and participation in the Express Trust performance.
If you have race pride and love your race, join in this great cause, I need
everyone of you who think conditions can be better. This is a field open
to strong men and women to uplift the nation and take yhour place in the
affairs of men. Do something for your people and their advancement.
Concluding, if you have any question(s), I will be delighted to answer. Become
a part of this great work. You can contact Frank Lewis El Bey, Trustee at,
1363 Florida Avenue, NE, Washington, D.C., 20002, Telephone (202) 397-1763.

(Transcript is currently being transcribed by the Court, so it is not available
This Trial was to dissolve the Interlocutory Injunction issued against Frank
Lewis El Bey March 26, 1997. The Plantiffs claim was that the trust is non
existence due to Frank Lewis El Bey not being born yet, and the prophet having
made his transition in 1928. Frank Lewis El Bey, Trustee is in court to establish
the existence of the Express Trust.
THIS IS OUR SOCIAL SECURITY FOR THE 21ST CENTURY.
I ASK YOU TO READ THE TRUST CHART AND SEE HOW IT UNFOLDS
We need the Unity of the Moors! IT IS TIME!!!
Calling all, "Bey's, El's, Ali's, and Dey's"! Peace!
The Expressed Trust
There are six (6) instruments used by the trustee to establish the legal
existence of the Express Trust created by the trustor, Prophet Noble Drew
Ali, in 1928 for the benefit of Moorish-Americans. The instruments are:
1. A certified copy of Our Authority, a Torren System Registraton (an abstract
of title), made directly from the Recorder of Deeds Office of Cook County,
Illinois. (Then see Smith-Hurd Illinois Annotated Statutes, Chap. 32, Sec.
165, 170 and 182.)
Under Article 4, Section 1 of the Constitution of the United States this
instrument must be given full faith and credit by the Circuit Court for Prince
George's County, Maryland as official public acts of another sovereign
This deed has been on record for over 30 years and coming from a natural
and reasonable official custody. Therefore, it comes under the ancient document
2. A sealed copy of the Moorish Holy Koran of the Moorish Science Temple
of America prepared by the trustor Prophet Noble Drew Ali. In this sealed
instrument, specifically Chapter 47, is the actual Deed of Conveyance.
Chapter 47 is the actual conveyance part of the deed. Sections one (1) through
seven (7) contain the premises of the deed; in Section six (6) the original
grant is made to the ancestors (Moabites) of the present true owners
(Moorish-Americans). In Section seven (7) the trustor gives a descripton
of their estate by metes and bounds; also see Sections ten (10) through seventeen
(17). This is unequivocally a fee simple estate.
The trustor Prophet Noble Drew Ali affixing the seal to this instrument
constitues a prima facie showing that the instrument is the act of the
Corporation. See seal generally 23 Am Jur 2d, Section 27.
"Due Weight must be given to all words used by the trustor in determining
his intention. The object of construing an instrument creating a trust is
to ascertain the intent and purpose of the settlor, and to effectuate that
purpose in so far as it is consistent with rules of law..."
..."If the trustor has clearly expressed one intention, the court cannot
impute to him another". Gillespie v Smith, 29 I11 473; and 76 Am Jur 2d,
Section 17 Construction.
3. Act Six (6) of the Divine Constitution and Bylaws of the Moorish Scient
Temple of America recorded on Page 8 of the Holy Koran questions for Moorish
Americans. This instrument and act clearly identify the true owners of the
land, or trust property, described in Chapter 47, the actual Deed of Conveyance.
These are the words of the trustor, identifying the beneficiaries of the
trust property and describing their land and great estate.
This act and instrument identify one of the primary terms of the trust:
"With us all members must proclaim their nationality and as mentioned above,
it positively identifies the beneficiaries".
4. The trustor's edict (recorded in the Moorish Literature pamphlet, Page
11) he issued at the 1928 convention announcing his authority and power.
In the first clause of the second paragraph is where the trustee derives
his authority and power and it is directly from the trustor Prophet Noble
Drew Ali. Specifically, he said: "All authority and power of the Moorish
Science Temple of America is vested in the Prophet Noble Drew Ali and those
who he appoints to act as in the Supreme Body". This is positive law.
Although the trustor had to repose the legal title in the trustee, the trustee
did not have to be named. Notwithstanding, Frank Lewis El Bey was designated
trustee in accordance with the manner in which the said trust was created.
In other words, "a trustee may be indicated and assume responsibility as
such without the express designation". 76 Am Jur 2d, Sec. 119, p. 362. That
is one of the advantages of the trust institution, technical or particular
words or phrases are not required or essential to the manifestion of an intention
of a settlor to create a trust. 76 Am Jur 2d, sec. 41, p. 287.
Knowledge of the Express Trust existence was reposed in the trustee (Frank
Lewis El Bey) enabling him through study, revelation and action to discover
it in 1978. In 1981, he was delivered a certified copy of the trust instrument
with muniments of title and accepted them, thus the legal title vested in
him. However, under Illinois's law, legal delivery and vesting the legal
title in the trustee in this particular case relates back to August 1, 1928
the date the instrument was deposited. Clark v. Clark, 183 Ill 448, 56 NE
82. See 23 Am Jur 2d, sec. 284, p. 318
("Where a deed is placed in the hands of a third person who is agent for
the grantor alone, the delivery dates from delivery to the grantee, not from
delivery to the agent, especially as between the grantee and a claimant of
immediate right. On the other hand, where the deed was irrevocably deposited,
ultimate delivery to the grantee relates back to the time of the original
delivery") Also see 23 Am Jur 2d, sec. 131, pp. 179-180.
("Where the grantor delivers the deed to a third person with the intention
that the title therby pass to the grantee, but the recipient has no authority
to receive the deed in behalf of the grantee, the grantee may ratify what
was donein his behalf, and the imperfect delivery thereupon becomes complete
Therefore, by judicial interpertation, the vesting of the legal title in
Frank Lewis El Bey, as Trustee, not only relates back to the date the Trustor,
Prophet Noble Drew Ali, recorded the deed August 1, 1928, but his appointment
is made therby by the Trustor himself. Thisis how Frank Lewis El Bey received
his appointment as trustee directly from the Trustor, Prophet Noble Drew
Ali, even though he wasn't born at that time nor was he born before the Trustor
That appointment makes Frank Lewis El Bey "today" the only living appointee
of the Founder of the Moorish Science Temple of America and Trustor, Prophet
Noble Drew Ali.
The trustor Prophet Noble Drew Ali recorded the deed August 1, 1928; after,
that he called a meeting with the Moors; at that meeting he held up the Holy
Koran and Our Authority and said, "Take these and save yourself". See Oral
Statement No. 1, in instrument 6 (Oral Statements of Prophet Noble Drew Ali).
Thereby, the trustor as Prophet Noble Drew Ali manually passed the titles,
legal and equitable, to the Moors. By divesting himself and giving up control,
the legal titled vested in the trustee and the equitable interst in the
beneficiaries although their real enjoyment was to take place in the future.
The trustor Porphet Noble Drew Ali said: "It will take 50 years to find out
what I brought you".
Knowledge of the Express Trust existence was reposed in the trustee (Frank
Lewis El Bey) enabling him to discover it in 1978. In 1981, he was deliverd
a certified copy of the instrument and muniments of title and accepted.
5. Acts four (4) and five (5) of the Divine Constitution of the Moorish Science
Temple of America:
ACT 4. All members must preserve these holy and divine laws, and all members
must obey the laws of the government, because by being a Moorish American,
you are a part and partial of the government, and must live the life
ACT 5. This organization of the Moorish Science Temple of America is not
to cause any confusion or to overthrow the laws and constitution of the said
government but to obey hereby.
6. The Oral Statements and Prophesies of Prophet Noble Drew Ali, Founder
of the Moorish Science Temple of America, Inc., and trustor of the Express
Trust was created in 1928 for Moorish Americans. Especially see: Oral Statements
1, 120, and 230.
Satement by Frank Lewis El Bey:
In understanding the Express Trust described above, one must understand,
under Illinois' law, no particular form of words is necessary to create trust,
when writings makes clear the existence of trust. In re Estate of Zukerman,

To understand how the Founder and Trustor, Prophet Noble Drew Ali, made the
appointment requires some insightinto how the Express Trust was created and
usd in conjunction with the legal institution know as a religious corporation.
"While the intention to create a trust may be, and usuallyis, manifested
by employment by the trustor of express or explicit language, such intention
may also be manifested by inference from those things which a trustor has
said or done, from the nature of a transation, or from the cirucmastances
surrounding creation of the purported trust... A Trust based upon a determination
of intention to create it by construction and inference is an express
An inference of intention to create a trust may be made generally from any
manner of writing or writings, from writing in connection with other
circumstances proper to be considered, from oral statements exclusively,
or in connection with transactions, and circumstances, or from conduct,
transactions, and circumstances, subject tothe requirements of the statute
of frauds or the parol evidence rule..." 76 Am Jur 2d. Sec 55, pp. 302.
What Shall We Call Him
by Prophet Noble Drew Ali
So Often our various journalist find trouble in selecting the proper name
for the Moorish American. Some say "Negro", another will brand him "Race
Man", still another will call him "Afro-American", and then come "Colored",
"Dark American", "Coon", "Shine", "The Brethren", and your "Folks". It is
indeed a hard matter to find something suitable for the various occasions
where a title needs to be used. Is it that these people have no proper name?
Did they have a National name when first brought to these shores in the early
part of the Seventeenth Century? If so, what was it? Did not the land from
which they were forced have a name? It now appears a good idea for those
whose duty it is to write for the various journals to find out what the National
Name of the forefathers of these people was. Also look into the history of
the founders of civilization and see who they were and where they stood in
the bulding of the present civilization. Probably two hours in an up-to-date
library would serve to relieve the strain on our men of letters. When the
occasion presents itself for a title for these people. The matter of the
various names given to these twenty-two million people with all colors of
every race of the globe was an act of European psychology. They gave him
a name, then defined it as something inferior to theirs. "White", they defined
as a color of purity; "Black", they say represents everything of evil. The
"Negro", as they were called in this nation, have no nation to which they
might look with pride. Their history starts with the close of the Civil War
or more properly with his being forced to serve some one else. Thus he is
separated from the illustrious history of his forefathers who were founders
of the first civilizatoin of the Old World. This matter should be looked
into with a hope of correcting it!
What can you do? Share this website with as many as you can. Print it off
and share it with as many as you can. Learn your rights as Beneficiary of
a trust. Support Frank Lewis El Bey in his efforts for all of us. Invite
him to speak in your area, that you may learn first hand the existence of
the Express Trust. Help to get radio spots, media, videos, seminars, meetings.
We must reach as many as possible.
If you have an email listing or distribution listing of Moors that you would
like to share with me, I would greatly appreciate it.
Ask questions (only after you have read the Trust Chart) and we will get
you answers. However, asking questions without reding the Trust Chart is
in of no value. A lot of people have opinions about this and have yet to
read the Express Trust Documents to understand how this came about and the
laws that pertain to it that make it so.
This is a Divine and National Movement guided by Allah!
