Hot spring, is it a volcano? They said after you take natural sauna bath you will feel better, and exactly that was what I felt after we took the natural sauna in that place!

Hot spring some said flat surface volcano

We WENT on a road trip this Friday October 24, 2014 to Al-Lith, which is around 200 kilometers south of Jeddah, and then on to the small city of Qunfudah for another car with Long and Jovit, which is around 385 kilometers down the coast from the Bride of the Red Sea. Moya HAR 58 Kilometer from AL-lith

Driving was my colleague Rashdi Mindalano Dimakuta, with Ayod Umpa our back. In Another car were Al, Ustadj and Najeeb. Traveling on the New Jizan Highway we drove until the main checkpoint into the Al-lith city and then turned lift to drive south to Al-Lith. We took the old road leading to Al-Lith, and passed many abandoned gasoline stations and mosques along the way. It was a quite interesting landscape, a sort of Saudi version of the American West. At the entrance to the town of Al-Lith we turned left and drove inland for 19 kilometers through a hilly landscape. Along the way we saw herds of goats alongside the road and.

I was excited to see the hot springs that I had heard so much about, the road is very well paved now, which means of course that the village of Moa al Har (Hot Water village) was now easily accessible to all the road is now very good.

While on the road that curved between beautiful hills that kept changing color with the movement of the clouds and sunlight, we came upon an open area that had been cemented over to make it into a recreation area, We then wandered down the way to a grassy embankment which the hot springs seemed to flow into. It was more like a drably stream than a river. And there on the banks we saw local men in pants and shirts washing their clothes in the water, I greeted them ASALAMMO ALAIKOM they replied Alaikomisalam taal join with us to removes all the toxics from your body and to clean your skin, after all you feel better and feel young and more handsome, so we joined them inside the natural covered sauna where the hot water coming from

The Honorable Commissioners:

We, the concerned Muslims in the Philippines, particularly the Muslims in Mindanao, congratulate you for getting this far in the peace talk negotiation, and we are informing you that we fully support the Framework Agreement. However, we are vehemently protesting the name Moro! The Muslims are not Moros or Bangsamoro.

We are not Moros just as the rest of the populations are not Indios. Moro is an insult to our people, a mockery of our traditions and a blatant denial of our history. Moro is a resurrection of the Colonizers' curse--a colonial mentality.

Like the name Negro or Nigger which is a pejorative name unacceptable to the African-Americans, Moro has been unacceptable among North Africans, Spain, India, and the Far East; only those of us who accepted this Spanish label call each other Moros. The Constitution officially calls us Muslims, thus, Muslim Mindanao. Our neighbors and the media have stopped calling us Moros decades ago. And we, Muslims, don't even call our brothers on the fronts Moros.

Moro is foreign so we used to hear its derogatory connotations from our neighbors. It is not an ethnicity, not a nationality, but an insult, a curse, and a word of abuse by the Spaniards and other colonizers at the people of Morocco, Mauretania, and other North African states, including those from Spain, Portugal, India, and Sotheast Asia. It is too generic a term to be usurped by some people in southern Philippines.

Moros is a bad language, very offensive and detestable to the World. It was related that the scientist Goddard recant his coined word Moron from Moro after realizing how pejorative Moro has always been.

People must wake up from this nightmare. The Philippine Government must realize that calling Muslims Moros is in contravention with the Law of the Land. Government officials must realize that it is improper to legalize a wrong name Moro or Bangsamoro (literally Moro nation).

We, therefore, recommend the following remedial suggestions to resolve this identity issue:

- Scrap the need for a common identity because there is none, except Muslim (a Way of Life). There never was before Islam. Moro is only a name (nom de guerre) for the liberation fronts and it was primarily used to scare the adversaries. 

- Add the name Sulu in the title of the new political entity. Instead of Bangsamoro, the new name is Muslim Mindanao and Sulu Juridical Entity or Sub-state.

- Collectively, we will be referred to by our preferred and correct names, such as, Muslims or Bangsa Muslim, Lumads, Christians and Moros or Bangsamoro

(Nation of Moros).

If the idea is not workable, find a name that is organic to the people, land and culture.  Any GOOD name but not the bad Spanish word Moros or Bangsamoros.

This identity crisis is a very serious and sensitive issue. No person is to call another a name that the latter did not accept and worse consider derogatory. The person's right to proper identity is guaranteed in the Constitution and embodied in the Universal Human Rights Declaration.

We, the civilians, are central to this conflict. We are the reason our brothers are fighting the government and we are also the reason the Government is negotiating with our brothers. We have rights to our identity! We are also the stakeholders.

Calling the Lumads and Christians in the territory and all the Muslims Moros is a violation of law and against norms of conduct.

We beseech you in the name of sanity and propriety to hear us, hear the plea of the silent majority, for the sake of unity and peace.

Thank you wassalamu 'alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu'

one of high ranked basketball team in KSA

Friendster beat defending champion MGI Thunderous in overtime 17-15 in a thrilling final on Saturday that climaxed the two-day competition featuring 24 teams divided into Pool A and Pool B with players of different nationalities.

The field was cut to the last 16 for the knockout stage after the eliminations in the first day Friday at the Sheraton Jeddah Hotel court here.

Friendster of Cris Melebo set up an all-Filipino final when it dispatched the taller and bigger Lebanese UnderDogs team of Pierre Najem, Ahmad Tartousi, Fadi Khiyimi and Ali Kubeisi 19-15 in the second semifinal.

Friendster was never seriously threatened with team captain Robby David and Tom Basa enjoying a good shooting night. A five-point lead at 17-12 with 2:25 to play cushioned the victory.

In the first semifinal, Thunderous had to dig deep in its arsenal to win against a Jeddah United side that boasts some of the best players in the city namely Salman Saleh, Mohannad Amir, Aiman Madani and Said Bahai.

Thunderous star player, former PBA Purefoods guard Boyet Bautista, showed his wealth of experience when he scored his team’s last four points including the game-winning basket from deep left corner in the dying seconds for a 27-25 victory.



Thunderous is adverb, it mean producing thunder or a similar sound or any loud sound, unrestrained in a way that suggests thunder, it can be use in a game or sport, esp. in loudness noise, thunderous clapping or thunderous applause or thunderous appearance.

the meaning of thunderous in local Philippines Maranao dialect is Marogong, from the root word rogong which mean thunder, Marogong is also good name of half of Mindanao area, equal kingdom of Bumbraran the magnanimous empire of Darangen era, now Maguindanao sultanate.

some said all Filipinos are related to this area; long long time ago before the coming of Islam and the Christianity to the Island, the ruler of Marogong had two sons, the elder went to the northern area (now Luzon area) and established his own Kiingdong, his descendants later baptized for Christianity when conquistador Spain came to the island,

His youngest son remained in Guindolongan Marogong became ruler of this area; later on Islam came to our island his descendants they embraced Islam.

In present time; Tubaran was divided into two municipalities, 1st called Tubaran lanao Del sur mother municipality, other called Marogong by Sultan Abdulmadid Maruhom, graduated mayor of both municipalities.

Our Basketball team name Marogong by Seradj Abdulhammid, when MGI was created as a group, I suggested to name it Thunderous as second official name of the group, the reason is we are composed of Filipino Christians, Filipino Muslims and some Arabs of same objective, vision and enthusiasts in sport, by Datu Ontay

Dimasangcay  ‘DIMAS’ A.  Pundato

Dimasangcay A. Pundato (born 1947) is a Muslim Filipino, known to friends and kin as "Kumander Dimas" is a former Moro revolutionary leader and current undersecretary of the Office of the Presidential Adviser on the Peace Process. He is not among the traditional politicians. He served for nine years in the now-defunct Office on Muslim Affairs (OMA) under the Office of the President during the administrations of the late President Cory Aquino and former President Fidel V. Ramos. He was the former Vice Chairman of the Moro National Liberation Front (MNLF) and Chairman of the MNLF Reformist Group, where negotiated with the Ramos administration in peace talks with Moro rebel front leaders.

Moro rebel leader turned Muslim reformist 

In the fight against the dictatorship of President Ferdinand Marcos, Pundato led the Maranao forces of the MNLF from 1973 to 1985, eventually becoming MNLF Vice-Chairman in 1978. He also fought internally for reforms in the rebel movement. Among the three pillars of the MNLF, only Dimas Pundato, the new Chairman of the MNLF Reformist Group became the only actively engaged in the fighting on the grounds while the rest were staying abroad and managing their forces literally by remote control. In 1980 he severed his relations with MNLF Chairman Nur Misuari when the latter refused the reforms demanded by Pundato of the organization with allegation of ideological differences and a leadership style tilting MNLF to one-man rule. This led to the creation of the MNLF Reformist Group which he headed. -->> Click READ MORE

Rajah Palawan was among the great Mindanao heroes who fought against invasion and colonialism. He was the first Mindanao hero to stand against the Spaniards and died for his conviction. He fought for his principles to defend the freedom of his people and homeland. He fought to preserve the culture and religion that were cherished and treasured since the time of his ancestors to his day. He believed that the worst thing to happen to his people would be to lose against the invading forces of Sarowangato (foreigners).

The time was about the middle of the 18th century, the 1750’s. The Spaniards were already established in nearby Cagayan de Oro and Ozamis.

As the Sultan of his realm, Rajah Palawan exhorted his people to prepare to fight the Spaniards. He said that it was the obligation of the people of Ranao to repulse any invasion or attack against their homeland. Failing on this patriotic duty they would lose their identity like the people of the Visayas and Luzon that the Spaniards subjugated.

To show his determination and resolve to defend their homeland and preserve their liberty and freedom, he decided to fight the invaders alone. He asked his people to allow him in this mission because he wanted to fight the enemies before they reached any part of Ranao. He said that if blood had to be shed in the struggle to protect the people and their homeland, then let everybody make sacrifice, but he would have his own blood flow first before that of his people. click--->>> C READ MORE

She was the only female ruler of Sulu; her name was omitted in Sulu genealogy and the ramadhan oration due to reason that she was a female ruler of the Sulu’s sultanate. Apparently, some Sulu’s did not look with favor on her regime, it being under a women leadership on 1666-1670,

Most historian did not call her sultan or sultana as her title, they addressed her royal throne PANGYAN AMPAY she was a Sulu’s royal princess, some historian name her Sittie Cabira, Arabic term of grand mistress. Sultana Nurul Azam was close friend of Zakiat Uddin Sha the sultana of Acheh Indonesia on early seventeenth century who recognized her leadership.

Nurul Azam, sittie cabira her other name was a daughter of a sister of Salahuden the 11th sultan of Sulu, her father was Sultan Baratamay of Buayan who ruled Buayan on 1657 and her younger sister married to Sultan Muhammad Dipatuan Kudarat ruler of Maguindanao on 1619 – 1671,

Sultana Cabira was married to a Maranao Datu, his name was Datu Mama sa Palao son of Sultan Biroa ruler of Bansayan Poona Bayabao on somewhere in 16th century (one of the 8 wise men of Ranao who updated the existed Egma and Taritib of Phangampong a Ranao to 15 panoroganan and 28 Mbabaya ko takder), Cabira and Mama sa Palao bored Amilbahar and Solaiman, their descendants now in Ramain, Marawi and some part Lanao.

Lake islands may form in numerous ways. They may occur through a build-up of sedimentation as shoals, and become true islands through changes in the level of the lake. They may have been originally part of the lake's shore, and been separated from it by erosion, or they may have been left as pinnacles when the lake formed through a rising in the level of a river or other waterway (either naturally, or artificially through the damming of a river or lake). They may also have formed through earthquake, meteor, or volcanic activity.

The Island popular known Maito a Balut (Small Island) traditionally and politically belongs to the territory of Binidayan Lanao Del Sur, one of its 26 regular Barangays.

According to Local Historian, this Island also called POLO AMPASO “Ampaso Island” land property of Maruhom Ampaso one of the 3 ancestors “P’GAPOON” of Binidayan, majority of residing people of the island claimed descendants of AMPASO (MORIATAO AMAPSO) reasoned why the Island called POLO AMPASO. 

Other historian told; these Islands Mala Balut and Maito a Balut are the rocks thrown by Rajah Indarapatra and Giant Omaca-an when they tried to kill each  other long, long ago.” Those rocks gradually grows became small Islands in lake Lanao.

Okkir or okkil is the term for geometric and flowing designs (often based on an elaborate leaf and vine pattern) and folk motifs that can be usually found in Maranao and Muslim-influenced artwork, especially in the southern Philippines, and in some parts of Southeast Asia. Okir a dato refers to the ornamental design for men and okir a bay to that for women.

In the Philippines, an ancient proof of okir's style of flowering symbols is the torogan, the ancestral home of the highest titleholder in a Maranao village. It is a symbol of power and prestige usually adorned during festivities. Its prominent part is the panolong, a carved beam that protrudes in the front of the house and styled with okir motif. The okir design is found woven or printed in textiles, carved into wooden cemetery markers and wooden boxes, and it can also be found etched into knife or sword blades and handles, and cast or etched into various brass and silver objects.

Other variations of the okKir involves the use of nāga or serpent motif.  Maranao instruments usually are styled with okir. A more prominent variation is the sarimanok, a chicken-like figure that carries a fish in its beak.

Marogong stole some of the thunder
Marogong stole some of the thunder when it dealt powerhouse Shadow Lounge a shock 96-87 defeat in Inter-Commercial Open Non-Rated A in the 1st Friendi Basketball Tournament presented by all new WPBL at the Ahmed Khaki Sports Complex (Orca) court here and Carrier Juffali (3-0) in Inter-Commercial Open Rated Division, Carrier the latest team to increasingly win adulation of basketball fans, duly completed a sweep of the first round eliminations by beating Thunderous Marogong 80-75 in the nightcap Thursday with big Elamparo named as Best Player of the game. Other than that nervy stretch Carrier was pretty much in control of the game as it consigned Marogong to its third straight defeat. The two other teams in the division, Nunungan Lakers and Shadow Lounge, are 2-1 and 1-2 respectively going into the last half of the double round eliminations. Sultanate Masiu improved to 2-1 in Non-Rated B by defeating Saudia Jet Aviation 78-70 in the fourth game Friday. Anwar emerged as the game’s Best Player. 

Philippine Dragon Boat to join Sarimanok Boat Race in Lake Lanao
Congratulations to the 1st ever SARIMANOK BOAT RACE and Clinic dubbed as ONE PADDLE FOR PEACE, ONE RACE FOR RANAO 17 of June 2012
This early morning, exciting, Helicopters are whizzing by signaling the presence of observers from the outside. Welcome to Lanao and congrats to the young host Ganassi Mayor RASHID Macapodi for the first ever DRAGON BOAT RACE in ARMM.
Fifteen members of the Philippine Dragon Boat Federation arrived here in the province on Friday, June 15, for the holding of the “Sarimanok Boat Race” in Lake Lanao.
The Federation partnered with the municipal government of Ganassi for the conduct of a three-day seminar clinic and exhibition on dragon boat racing at the cove of the lake in Ganassi, disclosed municipal administrator Noroddin M. Maguindanao in a press conference held on Saturday at Brew berry Cafe in Cagayan de Oro City.
According to Maguindanao, the event is dubbed as “Sarimanok Boat Race” because participating boats will have the traditional ‘Sarimanok’ head instead of the dragon head and they will be decorated with ‘okir’ on the sides rather than dragon scales.
He said it is expensive to buy and transport the original dragon boat to Lanao, thus, Mayor Al Rashid Macapodi handpicked skilled boat makers to construct the boats and make the paddles that will be used for the event.
The seminar clinic and exhibition which is anchored on the theme, “One Paddle for Peace, One Race for Ranao,” aims to introduce and promote the sport among Ganassi constituents.
"Most importantly, we hope to deliver a message on the present situation of Lake Lanao, its importance to the Maranaos and the need to protect and preserve it," Maguindanao said.
He stressed that activities and events like the Sarimanok boat race is needed to support the battle cry of saving Lake Lanao.
Maguindanao disclosed that as of press time, 10 teams, excluding those coming from the Philippine Army and Philippine National Police, have already registered for the event. (APB-PIA 10)

By Acmad (Ontay) Macagaan ABdulmadid

Since I created this webpage I am interested to write article and feature the late Sultan of Guimba, Atty. Omar Dianalan for his participation in our community, and I accept hard for me to begin due to lacked of healthy sources about his life and public service, Alhamdulillah: Allan Usman Dianalan visited me in my house and we had a talks about his grandfather the Sultan of Guimba uncle of his father.
My reasoned of featuring our traditional leaders is to guides or inspires others, whereas a boss can have power and authority but still not actually be a leader. Some argue that leaders only take people where they are willing to go, but others believe they take them beyond, or that crowds create leaders. Some people want power and will do anything to get it; other people follow whoever has the power and authority. Leaders may offer a moral vision or lead by virtue of religious authority or office: some are born with a great life force and mission which others follow for better or worse.
Sultan Atty. Omar Dianalan was one of the most successful and powerful leaders of Mindanao who was responsible for its tremendous success and growth, despite having no grassroots connection or political base in the beginning, his Academic position became his effected resource in sustaining the spirit of his noble will to convince the legions of Iranaons/Mranaos. Controversies and allegations seemed to be a significant part of his political life when some said he was the authored of selling Lake Lanao to National Power Corporation (NPC) I’m pretty sure his not.
A passionate freedom fighter, a partisan socialist, Sultan by heart, social reformer, political leader and a competent lawyer; these are the terms that are often related to the name that is Sultan Atty. Omar Dianalan (Omera and Rudy's father) served well the people of all faiths and helped develop Marawi City as mayor for almost 20 years and assemblyman then congressman of Lanao del Sur and revered sultan of Guimba, until the last portion of his life is for the benefit of his people,
Money and politics go together like love and marriage, but rarely get divorced even when there is some cheating going on. Many great leaders are, or become, very wealthy, but Sultan Atty. Omar Dianalan died without much wealth as you observed to other politicians, He will be remembered as a dynamic, optimistic, visionary and friendly Sultan and executive who’s his door and heart were always open to his people, he deserved to be a good example to the young Iranaons/Mranao who wants to follow his foot steps

Legendary Iranaon’s Heroes
Fight to defend your homeland from conquistadors and your name remain as these Heroes
Datu Aber Mamudug Palawan: popularly known as Saber sa Radapan, In 1759 Datu Aber Palawan and his men attack the Spanish squadron in the northern part of the Mindanao, in Radapan, Lanao he was martyred and buried in Radapan (now Tarapan, Linamon, Lanao del norte)
Sultan Darimbang of Raya: in 1889 sultan of Raya grandson of Datu Aber Palawan (saber sa Radapan) he heard Weyler troop wants to proceed to Marawi, he formed his men and attack the Spanish troops in Kauswagan Lanao in defense Marawi and lake area, He was slain martyred, his men did not buried him in the battle field as his grandfather they bring back to Raya Watu,
Sultan Pandapatan of Bayang: in 1892 his 300 men were crushed with the Americans in a fierce, he perished but Captain Vicar also died. (The American camp in Upper Bayang was named after him --- Camp Vicar, Lanao).
Datu Saruang of Tugaya: 1893 and many others datus also died fighting against the American forces coming to their place. (Upload the picture of pershing and the NY Times clip, justice cayetano) During the Commonwealth regime,
Amai Manabilang of Marawi: challenged the authority of Justice Cayetano Arellano, of the Philippine Supreme Court, in enforcing the government laws to the Maranaos. He led a campaign that Mindanao should be separated from the Philippines. The policy of attraction of the Americans in Lanao under General Pershing offered empty promises to the Maranaos who felt that the government deprived them with the continued exercise of their traditional and cultural practices and interference to their religion, customs and traditions.
Datu a Kadir of Marawi: 1891 A fearless Maranao warriors, also popularly known as AMAI PAKPAK, born in Buadi sa Kayo, lived and died for the cause of his people freedom. He was famous for his heroic military exploits against the Spaniards, particularly in his defense of the legendary Kota Marahui (Marawi), the fortification made of earth and stone, which he had built. The Kota served as a bulwark against the Spanish invasions of 1891 and 1895.
The sultans are not only temporal but also spiritual leaders. They are the symbols not only of their communities but also considered vicegerent of Allah in this world. It was the responsibility of the sultans not only to defend their people and communities but also their religion Islam.
If they were not fighting to extend their sphere of influence over neighboring non-Muslim peoples, they were up in the arms against Spanish attempts to subjugate them. In time of relative peace with Spaniards, they pitted their energy against one another for the control of territory or for the right to levy tribute. But clearly, their main pre-occupation was resisting not only Spanish incursions into their territories but also attempts to wean away tribute-paying from them. In comparison with that of other group in the Philippines, their resistance was relatively successful. 





The Sultanates of the four confederation of Lanao was the identification of ancestral land area (Kawali) of each state (Pangampong). Such was identified by the Datu Pascan of Unayan grandson of Dimaampao, Datu Popawan of Bayabao grandson of Botuanun, Ami Ayonan Simban of Masiu grandson of Bataraan and Datu Dilion of Baloi grandson of Thopaan. A meeting among the named Datus was set at Sawer, Masiu, Lanao Del Sur, to discuss changes, establish territorial boundaries of their respective areas and to draft and amend the already existing Taritib/Igma of the Phangampongo Ranao. The meeting place was provided with four (4) pillars of stones, called “Debarosan”, for the four (4) Datus. The agreement known as “Kiatathamana-an” territorial boundaries of their respective areas such as; Dalama, located in the municipality of Molondo, the boundary between Bayabao and East Masiu; Sawer in Masiu municipality the boundary between East Masiu municipality and East Unayan; Madamba municipality, the boundary between West Unayan and West Masiu; and Bacayawan in Marantao municipality, the boundary between west Masiu and Bayabao. --->>> READ MORE


Dansalan Declaration Overviews

3) - March 18, 1935 –Dansalan Declaration Lead by Hadji Abdulhamid Bongabong of Unayan and 189 Maranaos sent a letter of Appeal to the US Congress , the portion of appeal runs this: “ Should the American People grant Philippine independence, the Islands of Mindanao and Sulu should not be included in such independence.

Family history or popularly known as genealogy continuously awaken the awareness of many people across the globe. Some enthusiasts consider genealogy as a hobby or pastime. But for other people, it is important in finding who they really are.
Generally, it is the focus of interests and some controversies. In fact, you can unravel different mysteries in connection with your origin. Old pictures, written documents, and other forms of materials provide significant information utilized to elucidate world and personal history.
One of the most common methods is asking the help of a professional genealogy researcher. But make sure that you choose the right person as well as other important factors associated with doing the research.
Ensure that the genealogy researcher has the ability to find your family member. Look for someone who will empathize with your reasons why you wanted to search for your mother, father, or siblings. All the information should be taken cared of by a privacy policy law.
Although the genealogy of Maranao is a study reserved for Maranao Maongangen (wised men and women) the average Maranao has to have inking of what is mean. Strikingly enough, Maranao genealogy is written. Maranao maonganen can easily trace the history of Mindanao, Ranao and Maranaos.

Long before the coming of foreign invaders of the Philippines, there was already a political government existed so called sultanate by the people who believed to be the Bangsamoro. The traditional government had its executive branch headed by the Sultans of the royal clan/family, they were identified as the “Paegawidan ko inged”, they also had legislative body they were the “Bebabaya ko Taritib” whom given the power to execute laws for a certain place. This political stability of the Bangsamoro had been customized and became so strong when the Arab missionaries arrived in the Philippine to introduce Islam where they made strong alliances of the natives and established the sultanate of Mindanao, Maguindanao, Sulu, and Ranao, which they believed they came from royal and noble Bangsa. 
Lanao “Ranao” is divided into four confederations (4 Phangampong) principalities,
·         Unayan
·         Masiu

Kandaonga (Iranaon’s courtship)
By Acmad (Ontay) M. Abdulmadid
Kandaonga (courtship) is undertaken through the matchmaker, often in verses exchanged continually until there is an assurance on both sides about the details of the marriage. It even continues until kalawi-an or rites of marriage, a ritual done when the bride visits the place of the groom for the first time. Matrimonial negotiations often take a long time because of these exchanges.
The kakewing (wedding proper) is preceded by the kambitiara, a public recital by the pananalsila of the lineages of both the bride’s and the groom’s families. One reason for the kambitiara is to make public the “noble” lineages of both families, and hence to affirm that both are of the same class. The kambitiara can also be recited to praise and extol both families.

After the kambitiara, the kakewing proper takes place. This is often dramatic because the groom has to overcome many obstacles before he is able to meet his bride and batal or tough her for the first time. The imam recites the wedding rite, and gives advice on the duties and responsibilities involved in married life. After this, the groom searches for his bride; but he cannot just enter the room where she is hidden until he satisfies their demands of the bridal entourage. Very often, the groom and the entourage have to haggle for whatever is demanded, the fulfillment of which allows his to enter the room. Another obstacle awaits him; he has to fulfill the rites of leka sa gibbon or opening the room. A fee has to be paid by the groom to open the door and dine with his bride.

The kalawian is the last obstacle that the groom must face. The ritual of bringing the bride to the groom’s place for the firs time entails a price, and this must be paid. Failure to do so can forfeit the wedding.
Before and after the wedding, we observed these following scenes
A.) Kapanganakan: so mangoda na igira adun a pukabayaanian a pangaromaanian a raga bago a tao na pusong ko walay o mbala a lokes o raga a pukabayaanian na ron pagiga odi na mababasaon alongan, amay ka maakas na katii so manga pasodan opama ka pangaromaanian so bae

In the late 15 century, the Undivided Lanao has an existing form of government, built by our forefathers and called “Igma go taritib” that bind the Maranaos-Iranaons of central Mindanao and main reason why Maranao-Iranaons never been conquered, subdued and undefeated by conquistador Spaniards and others colonizers
According to the taritib, Ranao was divided into four genealogical principalities, MASIU, UNAYAN, BAYABAO, BALOI, every principality furthered divided to districts with a royal Sultans and Baes, composed of 16 Panoroganans and 28 Mbabaya ko Takdir legislative councils,

Local historian narrated that Unayan phangampong was formerly called Marogong, the word Marogong derived from the root word “Rogong” which means sound of thunder, Marogong is a plural of rogong, given by Dimaampao kalinan the founding ancestor of Marogong principality, renamed Unayan by Datu Pascan grandson of Dimaampao.

THE TITLE SULTAN IS FOR MUSLIM ONLY; He was the head of the state and head of the government, and his words were the Law. He was the political, military, judicial, social, and religious leader. He was responsible only to Allah and God's Law, known as the Seriat (Sharia). Presumed to be the religious head of the community, and descended from the Prophet Muhammad
Sultan is a title with several historical meanings. Originally, it was an Arabic language it is abstract noun meaning "strength", "authority", "rulership", and "dictatorship", derived from the “masdar” meaning "authority" or "power". Sultan, which originally meant 'power' or 'authority', evolved by the tenth century to its present meaning of the holder of that authority, such as a ruler, lord, or monarch. The most spectacular sultans of history were those of the Ottoman dynasty, who ruled most of the territory of the Middle East and North Africa, as well as large parts of Eastern Europe, from 1300 to 1923.
Later, it came to be used as the title of certain rulers who claimed descent of Fatima Zahra the daughter of Prophet, full sovereignty in practical terms (i.e. the lack of dependence on any higher ruler), without claiming the overall caliphate, or it was used to refer to a powerful governor of a province within the caliphate.
The title of sultan came to prominence around 1000 C.E., after the political position of the caliphate (office of the leader of Islam) had eroded around the time of the establishment of the Seljuk sultanate. Turko - Iranian dynasts used the title as an equivalent of the Eurasian steppe title khan. Later, it was used generally in Islamic lands by many states large and small. In some cases, for example, in Persia (now Iran), from 1500 on, the term was further devalued to denote a governor, not even a petty ruler. 
Who were the datus of Mindanao? The term datu is a general term which means and connotes traditional leadership. It is inherited. Royal titles such as sultan (sulutan in other version), rajah, emperor, king, and other titles which connote royalty are termed and called datu. Royal titles are peculiar. States and nations vary on the royal title being used or adopted.
In Mindanao (Ranao Ragat or Pagilidan) (Buayan-Maguindanao) and (Sulo); sultan is usually used to identified the leader. Traditionally, datu has multifunctions and authority. The datu is an executive, legislator, and judicial. He is also the commander- in-chief of the armed forces of his state. The datus in Mindanao claim their royal descendancy from Shariff Core of Descent Line. Authorities in salsila mentioned that datus a traditional leader officially started from Raja Indarapatra while Sultan a royal title officially started the 7 Ashraf who come from Arabia,
During the traditional observance of leadership, datu may be expressed in term of Sultan, Emperor, Rajah, King and Prince. Its usage varies on the different states and nations. In Mindanao, during the ancient or prehistoric period, the term rajah has been used to refer a leader until the arrival of Ashraf. The term Sultan or Surutan has been used after the arrival of Shariff Kabunsuan. Accordingly; Sultan Kudarat was the first leader who used the title Sultan Ketchil and Datu is his hereditary title.
Datu is a traditional royal title in South East Asia during free Islamic period, they said it is a prince. Datu a male noble rank is given to a native of a place, the Ruler, Chieftain, and the heir of a royal Sultan, Bae or Chieftain. In a Modern time Datu is given address to a learned man “Maungangun” full of knowledge, and wise man from a royal line, heir of Sultan or Bae a Labi recognized in the place where he come from.
Non Muslim can’t be a Sultan but can be a Datu, please don’t encourage non Muslim for this title for us to follow the Sharia Law.

Maguindanao and Iranun-M’ranao
are one Bangsa
Maguindanao and Iranun-Maranao are one Bangsa, belong to same family tree lineage. Kabungsuwan arrived in Malabang area with many followers some of them are Samals, they arrived and disembarked with part of his people at T'bok Now Malabang. Later on, some of his people went on eastward to Parang and Bungabung, others again went still further, to the lower Pulangi Rio Grandi, where they built the town of Cotabato. Malabang that time was mostly dominated by Iranuns, Iranaon is the right term for Iranun, the word Iranun came from the word “I-ranaon”. This means that the Iranuns came from a ranao or lake; Butig and Malabang are the capitals of Iranun-Iranaon nation of Mindanao.
 According to Majul, there might have been a Muslim community there already as two Arab missionaries preceded Kabungsuwan. Kabungsuwan married into Iranaon-Iranun royalty and later he married into Taga Ilud, Maguindanaon royalty, too. He married also princess Tomanina, Tonina in short name bore three daughters where the “tao sa Raya” and the Buayaan royalty came from, the Iranaon-M’ranao Royalty precisely from the four datus of Ranao and Sharif Alawi and Kabungsuwan’s descendants.

In the name of Allah the Compassionate and Merciful. Allah is greatest. Allah is exalted. He is the Master of the World and the King of the Universe who rules with conquering power. Invisible to the eye. He is visible through His power and might. His is all the power and glory. His is all kindness and glory. He is the Almighty and the Ruler of All. He is everlasting and never dies.

There is no God but Him. Everything vanishes but the face of God. He is our Governor, and to Him all shall return. Before Him the learned men are humiliated; and the mighty humble them in His presence. All the prophets have spoken of His Lordship; and all the men of old have borne witness to His unity. All the men of learning have spoken of His eternal being.

The wise men are unable to give an adequate description of His attributes. All that is in the earth and the heavens acknowledge His worship, and praise Him day and night without ceasing. Allah is greatest. He is the Lord of Lords and the Liberator of the World. He inspired the Book and commands the clouds. He overcomes all difficulties. He is the Cause of all Causes. He opens all doors and answers all who call Him. The Lord has said, "Call Me, and I shall answer you. All who despise my worship shall enter hell." Allah is almighty.

All the heavens praise Him, The sandy deserts, the shades and all darkness, on the right and on the left, praise Him morning and night. There is nothing that does not sing His praises; but you can not understand their praises. Oh, how kind and forgiving He is! Allah is almighty. All the angels praise Him. The heavens, the earth, the mountains and hills, and all the birds praise Him. Praise and glory is to Thee, Lord. Thou art the Lord of Indescribable Might and Honor. Peace be to the Muslim missionaries in our land, and praise to God, the Lord of the Universe



The royal sultan and all leading datus possessed salsila which were jealously guarded and formerly protected from prying eyes. Sometime for a reason to be explained later, they were even with held from persons claiming relationship to the royal family. Such royal salsila are distinguishable from other relatives’ salsila where descent is traced to a prominent Muslim who is claimed to have been one of the first to introduce Islam to the area. Such a Salsila confers prestige on its owners, a situation however, not entirely devoid of possible political implications.

Royal salsila, to which this discussion is confined, usually have at least tow things in common, the first is a genealogical account where sometime the sultans who reigned are specified as such. Second is as assertion that the descent is from Prophet Muhammad SAW through a Sharif who had come to the Philippine and established a dynasty. Some salsila go further than these: they established relationship between local dynasty and the great empires which had earlier flourished in Brunei, Malaysia and other parts,

The Sarimanok is a legendary bird of the Maranao people who originate from Mindanao, a major island in the Philippines. It comes from the words "sari" and "manok." "Sari" means cloth or garment, which is generally of assorted colors.  Maṇk is a Philippine word for chicken.

It is the legendary bird that has become a ubiquitous symbol of Maranao art. It is depicted as a fowl with colorful wings and feathered tail, holding a fish on its beak or talons. The head is profusely decorated with scroll, leaf, and spiral motifs. It is said to be a symbol of good fortune

The Sarimanok is derived from a totem bird of the Maranao people, called Itotoro. According to the Maranao people, the Itotoro is a medium to the spirit world via its unseen twin spirit bird called Inikadowa.

The Sarimanok is also believed to have originated from an Islamic legend. According to the legend, Muhammad found a rooster in the first of the seven heavens. The bird was so large its crest touched the second heaven. Its crow roused every living creature except man. Judgement day would come once this celestial rooster ceased to crow

A Maranao legend also says of a Sultan's daughter being swept by a colorful rooster that became a handsome young man and they were never seen ever again. The Sultan then created replicas of the bird to remember his daughter by

Iranaon’s Pride

Iranaons/Maranao are well-known for the aspects of Culture and arts, they gained more prominence in the field of martial arts when the MSU Karate Club successfully garnered three gold Medals and one silver in the 1994 first Philippine National Games – the first time Iranaon/Maranao gained these elusive awards in sports, and up to the present time the club still gaining good records.

In the name of Sport and Martial Arts, Iranaons/Maranao exceed on it and became more and more prominences when the young prince of Marawi in the good name of Datu Revie Saber Sani (son of Sultan Duma S. Sani and grandson of late Mamitua Saber, Radiamuda sa Marawi) won Champion in the international karate competitions like the 2003 8th karate games of the Adriatic in Italy, 2003 8th Czech open karate championship in Czech Republic, 2005 Asian Karate championship in Hong-Kong, China and the 23rd South East Asian Games (SEAGAMES).

The Iranaons/Maranao. would someday proven champion in the prestigious of the Olympics as my father’s longstanding dream, Datu Revie said in his Interview.


Pamakot Ka Sa Masa Emanto

A Song of a Moro Artist

The King of Moro Song Datu Komeni Bansuan lunched his new album with the new song “Pamakot Ka”. It could really encourage and inspire each individual who would listen and internalize its deep meaning. Some of its line go this way “ My friend, pamakot ka, know yourself. Pamakot ka while you are young. Know what is happening in this world and think of what you can do. Pamakot ka while still you are healthy and strong. Face your future, don't ever think you cannot make for God has given you all. Isn’t he right in saying this so?

At this point of time, in this era of globalization wherein we can’t describe the kind of life we have. Life expansion decreases due to many illnesses and diseases. It becomes unpredictable when we can’t do anything but to face life as it is. Competitiveness among nations, tribes and even religion brings deep impact to our lives. Thousand of people lost their lives because of such conflict. Survival for poverty really a prime problem of human being. Million of people died because of have nothing to eat.

Now, is Komeni right of giving us a signal to move ahead and to strive hard inorder to survive from this vulnerable world? This is not advertising Komeni but it somehow gives us the lesson to be vigilant of our life.

Connect this message to our own distinctions and undertakings as individuals. As teachers for example, pamakotinka, value your responsibility of molding and teaching the young generation because perhaps time maybe too late for you to do it and you might regret after all. Do this while you are still in the position, while you are strong and while you have all the opportunities of doing it all.

The last line of Komeni’s song says “ Now is the time to reflect on. Ponder on and move fast”. This is just a mere song of an ordinary moro artist but let us not forget great move and action start from an ordinary and simple plan.



Just recently, the global sultanates summit was successfully done. Alhamdulillah, we thanks Allah for the success of the event, everything went smoothly with global summit in Mindanao on 10th and 11th December, 2010, HRH princess Aizian Utto Camsa said in Facebook.
