The First Seven Acts (of 49)
What is an act?
o Federal laws are bills that have passed both houses of Congress, been signed by the president, passed over the president's veto, or allowed to become law without the president's signature. Individual laws, also called acts, are arranged by subject in the United States Code.
o If the president signs the bill, it becomes a law. Laws are also known as Acts of Congress. Statute is another word that is used interchangeably with law.
o An act is a part of a play defined by elements such as rising action, climax, and resolution. A scene normally represents actions happening in one place at one time, and is marked off from the next scene by a curtain, a black-out, or a brief emptying of the stage.
o take action; do something.; "they urged Washington to act"
o behave in the way specified. "they followed the man who was seen acting suspiciously"
o take effect; have a particular effect. "blood samples are analyzed to find out how the drug acts in the body"
o perform a fictional role in a play, movie, or television production. "she acted in her first professional role at the age of six"

These acts or actions of physical work, effort, writing, speaking, and doing the work of uplifting fallen humanity give us some insight into the direction planned for the MDNM and the MSTA by Prophet Noble Drew Ali and the Great God Allah.
Preach with Zeal about these acts, then plan and work to produce the intended result of the act, in modern day and time; mass and energy traveling through space and time in the present!
These acts happened when Prophet Noble Drew Ali was physically alive in the 1920s. It is now over 100 years later.
Study and Follow these acts and find success in the Moorish Divine and National Movement.
I. Preach and Promote Economic Security and a Doctrine of Economic Security.
"In connection with our religious aims and beliefs, we must promote economic security. The preaching of economic security among us is by no means as widespread and intensive as the circumstances demand. No other one thing is more needed among us at this time than greater economic power.
Better positions for our men and women, more business employment for our boys and girls and bigger incomes will follow our economic security. We shall be secure in nothing until we have economic power. A beggar people cannot develop the highest in them, nor can they attain a genuine enjoyment of the spiritualities of life."
-MOORISH LEADER'S HISTORICAL MESSAGE TO AMERICA, Prophet Noble Drew Ali
“The Doctrine of economic security is by no means as widespread and intensive as is needed.”
II. Be Industrious
“The industrious acts of the Moslems of the northwest and southwest Africa. These are the Moabites, Hamathites, Canaanites, who were driven out of the land of Canaan, by Joshua, and received permission from the Pharoahs of Egypt to settle in that portion of Egypt. In later years they formed kingdoms. These kingdoms are called this day Morocco, Algiers, Tunis, Tripoli, etc.”

IV. Have and Use an Upliftment Fund
“It is through the faithful Moors that contribute to the Movement and Uplifting Funds. The ones that paid their divine respect to me and the movement will be remembered. That is why I’m calling upon all faithful Moors to increase their faithfulness to me your profit and your divine Moorish movement. I need financing I needed bad. Never before have I needed finance as badly as I do at present, that I may shove aside the discord that is facing the nation. It all comes to jealousy because of my “fame and nobility.””
