The rebranding of the university to MITI signifies a new chapter in their educational journey, one that is focused on empowering individuals and communities through knowledge and understanding.

Taking The Journey with 

Embarking on the spiritual path with the guidance of an honest teacher is no easy feat, but it requires an even greater challenge of preparing oneself for the journey ahead. To become eligible for this spiritual voyage, one must delve deep within and question: "What am I truly seeking? How determined am I to achieve my goals? Do I need to comprehend the ways of being a Moorish American Moslem, the rich history of The MSTA, and the profound faith of Islam? And who can lead me through this path of enlightenment and exploration?"


In today's world, students and those intrigued by the pursuit of genuine knowledge and spirituality often prioritize the qualifications and credentials of their teachers rather than focusing on their own inner essence and virtues. It is not to say that the qualifications of a teacher in Islam are insignificant, for they are indeed spiritual guides in their purest form.

The key element in embarking on a spiritual quest is the assumption of a sincere and open-minded student - someone who is honest in their intentions and ready to take the necessary steps. In our particular school of thought, students are often advised to "clear their minds" and let go of preconceived notions.


To truly grasp the essence of religion, one must first comprehend the principles and regulations that govern not only the concept itself but also the individual. This understanding serves as a crucial starting point for anyone seeking the truth. Additionally, it is vital to have a trustworthy teacher who possesses knowledge of the path. The connection between student and teacher is closely intertwined, as the universal law of balance and harmony governs our existence. Consequently, the more pure and genuine the student's intentions, the more reliable and truthful the teacher will be in guiding them.

Just as a gardener must carefully examine the quality of the soil before planting seeds, a student of the heart must thoroughly assess their intentions and ensure they are sincere before embarking on the path of spiritual truth. Similarly, just as Allah rewards those who are truthful, a treasure can only be appreciated by those who truly understand its value and are deserving of it.

There is so much we can express about who we are; we rather you experience us by becoming a student at MITI.
