About The Fez | Moorish Fez Hat
The fez has always denoted nobility and wisdom. Often in movies, comics, and animation characters that posses magic abilities wear the mystical fez headdress. A perfect example is this picture of the comic character Mandrake the Magician and his sidekick Prince Lothar, an African prince who wore a fez hat. There are far too many other examples to list them all here.
The fez is very important to Shriners as well. It represents a pyramid and the top is flat. The flat top stands for the uncompleted portion of the pyramid. The tassel represents a cable used to raise the capstone and place it where needed. Under the fez hat, the wearer's head represents the vault where the treasures of the order are preserved and stored. As a pyramid houses wisdom, so the fez, worn by Shriners and Daughters of Isis, houses wisdom in the brain. The red fez hat also represents the skill and wisdom of the men who erected the great pyramids.
Freemasons are only allowed to don the fez hat once completing all degrees. After becoming a master mason they are allowed to become a Shriner and wear the fez.
|Two of these famous Shriners are former US presidents, Harry Truman and FDR.|
How is the Fez Hat Connected to the Moorish American?
|Brought to you by FezCaps.com|
The word Fez derives from the City of Fezzan where it begins. The fez was and is worn by dark skinned Asiatics in what today they call North Africa, from the city of Fez. Moors after studying particular sciences, whether it be astrology, algebra, irrigation, botany etc, are qualified to wear the Supreme height of practical Wisdom.
Later on in life the Egyptians, Turks, Persians and Yemen’s adopted the fez. The Masonic Order wears the Red Fez (shriners). It was adopted by them in honor of the moors. It was a Bey that introduced the Moorish custom and Fez hat to a caucasian Mason by the name of Fleming and it as a Moor by the name of Pasha that gave the rights to an Asiatic by the name of John G. Jones; who in return introduced the Moorish custom and Fez hat to Prince Hall shriners. Keep in mind that they were Moors.
Modern day craft Masons adopted the red Fez and Gratto called the Poor Man's Shrine also adopted the black Fez hat. However, in our case, as Moorish Americans (Master Masons) we have inherited the red and black Fez hat from our ancient forefathers. The Shriner society in North America and Mexico is known for humanitarian services. Just look up Shriner Hospitals on Google. You should not confuse the Moorish Americas with Shriners, because they are not. Moslems are born and not made.
Therefore the Fez has been restored to the rightful heirs, Moorish descendants of North, South and Central America etc. Also take notice that the Fez hat, or headdress is also worn by chiefs and Captains in Nigeria and Mali etc. FOREVER KEEP IN MIND THAT THE CLOCK OF DESTINY IS THE ONLY ORDER THAT CAN RESTORE THE FEZ, MOORISH DESCENT NATIONALITY CARD OF BIRTHRIGHTS WITH THE MOORISH TITLES BEY AND EL.
The above credentials were established for scientific and Cultural Free Born Moorish American (Master Masons).

They navigate upon the earth and their potential is not limited, not pinned down, or kept secret, however it is sacred. The 4 sets of air holes are equal to the number of wombman — 9, and add to 13, the number of times a woman cycles per year, which is in tune with the cycle of the Moon.
