Noble Drew Ali was born Timothy Drew January 8th, 1886 CCY / 1306 M.C.Y. in the Territory (State) of North Carolina. He was born of the Aniyunwiya (Cherokee) tribe of the Moorish Nation. Not much is known about Drew Ali's early life, but at an early age he traveled around Northwest Africa / Amexem (America) with gypsies as a circus magician. It was then that he was able to see the unfavorable conditions of the indigenous people and decided that to change things.
At the age of 16, Drew Ali traveled to the East where he studied in Hikuptah (Egypt). It was while in the East that he was anointed ‘El Hajj Sharif Abdul Ali’, and would become Noble Drew Ali. He returned to America with his teachings and set on his mission to free the oppressed Moorish Nations of Northwest Africa (Al Moroc / America).
In 1913 at the age of 27, Noble Drew Ali established The Old Canaanite Temple in Newark, New Jersey. It was founded as a civic organization to bring the Moorish people of America back into the constitutional fold of government, and to reconnect the people their true ancestry. He left Newark with his followers due to the people's frustration of his teachings. Noble Drew Ali and his followers traveled the land and set up congregations in Philadelphia, Washington D.C., Detroit, and finally Chicago in 1925. In 1926 Noble Drew Ali officially registered Temple #9.
In 1929, Claude Green-Bey, the business manager for Temple #1 in Chicago was killed at the Unity Hall of the Moorish Science Temple on March 15th. Noble Drew Ali was out of town at the time, but was arrested with other members upon his return under the suspicion that they may have instigated the killing of Claude Green-Bay for his attempted a coup d'etat of the Moorish Science Temple.
Noble Drew Ali was never indited for the murder of Claude Green-Bey, but shortly after his release from police custody, he passed on from this life on July 20, 1929 in his home at the age of 43, The exact cause of his death is still unknown. It is rumored that he suffered injuries while in custody of the police, or that he may have been killed by members who wanted to succeed him.
