HADITH KO KAPAGANADA KO GOGODAN


Abu Hurairah narrated (RA) that the Messenger of Allah SAW said: "Learn enough about your lineage to facilitate keeping your ties of kinship. For indeed keeping the ties of kinship encourages affection among the relatives, increases the wealth, and increases the lifespan."

Hiyas ng Kadayawan Beauty Pageant


It was a pageant like no other: no long and bulky gowns and definitely no skimpy swim suits. Hiyas ng Kadayawan is a search for the perfect role model of a modern Dabawenya (Davao woman) among the ten tribes that reside in Davao city. No minimum height required; only unique beauty, confidence and a sense of culture are what it takes.

Each of the ten tribes namely Kagan, Ata, Maranao, Bagobo Klata, Sama, Bagobo Tagabawa, Maguindanaon, Obu Manuvu, Matigsalog and Tausug had their own representatives. Garbed in their most elaborate traditional costumes, these ladies showcased the best of their tribes for the world to see.

This year’s Hiyas ng Kadayawan Talent Night was held August 15 at the Gaisano Mall of Davao Atrium, where thousands of spectators oohhed and aahhed at the amazing abilities of the candidates. The mall was also holding a huge sale, adding to the already dense crowd.

 

 




KAMBAWALAY SA RANAO

 

In ancient Iranaon (Iranon, Iranun and Maranao) society and civilization, the size of a household is measured by the number of IGAAN that can be placed inside the house. One IGAAN consisted of the Dazigan where the Somandig (headboard or decorative silken MAMANDIYANG and LALANSAY similar to head drapes or curtain, the baor (treasure chest) that extended to the sides bordering other igaan, and the Kaolonan where there are pillows and extra decorative pillows. Then there is the Sendigan a Igaan where the tier of Tilam (mattress) is centrally placed as a sleeping and a sitting area. To one or two sides are the BAZIKOWAYAN with only a Dempas or mat covered the floor underneath. This serves as a work area KAPANAYONTAYONG for the lady of the master of the Igaan. At the foot of the tiere3d tilam is the TINEPAD with a big plain balabak mat is placed. This is a dining area proper for the couple where the PAGNATEN consisting of trays and utensils of brasswares are placed such as the Tabak, Kararaw (water vessel), Dudaie (spitoon), Karanda (food boxes), Talam (tray), etc.

That reminds me of the old Japanese house which is also assessed of its size on the number of Tatami (straw mats) that can be placed in the house (By Edris Tamano)

 





PONDAG OF WEST MASIU (SUDUPAN O MAGANDING)

As per the Taritib of Pangampong a Masiu, there are 4 Datus “mbabaya sa Taritib’ deciders of the traditional law of pangampong a Masiu, 1) Madayao 2) Kadayon, 3) Abagat and 4) Pondag,

The nature of the ancient system of the land tenure in this pangampong is clearly stated in the "Principles adopted by majority of the traditional leaders of Masiu," which were approved by the Legislative Councils and the Panoroganans,

Based on the Salsila of Pangampong a Masiu, Madayao, Kadayon, Abagat are brothers, their sisters are Ayowa and Potri Mamotri mother of Pondag. According to oral story; their parents let the west Masiu testamentary for Potri Mamotri and called pikawali e Pondag a sudupan of Maganding, later pronounced Tinindugan e Pondag and some said inipanagad e Pondag, meanwhile the Kawali in north-east Masiu distributed to Datu Madayao, Datu Kadayon and Datu Abagat, the southeast for Ayowa so that she was married to Sharif Angkaya of poona Masiu and Panoroganan of Pangampong exclusive for her later descendants as per the taritib agreed by the datus of pangampong a Masiu.

Salsila mentioned that Domocao sa Taraka married to Kalisia a Olan of Tagoloan daughter of Libobongan Aliga son of Patimata to Potri Mapunag daughter of Sharif Alawi from the native princess of Tagoloan and begot, 1) Madayao 2) Kadayon, 3) Abagat and 4) Potri the mother of Pondag, 5) Ayowa.

Potri Mamotri married to Radia son of Kalantongan, Amaloya Thopaan’s brother, begot Pondag of “Sudupan” west of Masiu, other version of Salsila that Pondag’s father was Radia Baringigan of Masiu brother of Datu Bayogun. Pondag married to Inai Agaon and begot Untad and Abantas. (Note: o adun a daon katarotopi na comment niyo bo)….-Datu Ontay-

MOUNT DAKA COLD PLACE MOST OF TIME:

On our way to Daka Mountain, the trippers can’t run fast the road is still under construction, no protector yet on the sides of the roads and it is mountainous area, some time going down then going up and Zigzagized road. When we reached the town of Mohammad we turned left going to Daka Mountain, estimated of 15 Km from the Hi-way, before the peak of the mountain we stop to the resort hotel and inquired for accommodation, the reception humbly replied it full and family only.

Manager Seradj suggested moving us to the top of the mountain to stay there until sunrise, the trippers embarked to the peak of the mountain, it was surprised for us too much people in the area doing picnic, some are group of Afghans, Indonesians, Arabs, Indians, Koreans, Pakistanis and Filipinos. We prepared our foods cooked some menus and most important is coffee the place is too much cold, in the morning we took our Selfie and we continued our traveled going to Wadi Halema at Bano Saad town, about 130Km from Mount Daka at exact 08; 15am.

Mount Dakah is a 8,481 ft / 2,585m mountain peak near At Ţaif, Makkah, Saudi Arabia. Based on peakery data, it ranks as the 1st highest mountain in Makkah province and the 5th highest mountain in Saudi Arabia (Source Wikipedia)




WADI HALEMA AT BANO SAAD TOWN:

After sunrise in Mount Daka, about 8 o’clock in the morning of August 12, 2016, the trippers decided to move going to Wadi Halema of Bano Saad to visit the old grave of Saida Halemato Saadia (RA) she who milked our beloved prophet Mohammad and raised him until 4 years old (PBUH),

from the Mount Daka is about 135KM to Wadi Halema between Taif City and Al Baha city, this is the place where the famous story of heart splitting of Rasul (PBUH) the 3 angels removed a blood-clot from it and cleansed it with Zam Zam water before keeping it back!. this also where the grave of Halemato Saadia and her family, the yard where the prophet Mohammad played when he was 1 - 4 years of age is walking distance from the grave yard, the old house of the family of Halema is in the place, a portion where the tourists offer prayer, from the old house we climb the mountain where the exact place of heart splitting occurred, the trippers took some selfie, groufie and took a minutes of rest on the peak of the small mountain, the place is very cool you can smell fresh air, imaging the life of our beloved Rasul (PBUH) when he was a lad.

Wonderful experience, along the way we passed by a man with his numbers of goats – sheep walking with, I don’t expect it is existing those kind of Arab life in modern time, along the way also we saw a group of camels and prosperous gardens like corn and vegetables, the road going to Wadi Halema is accessible and asphalted, after hour of visit in the Sohada of Halema, the Trippers moved going to another tourist spots, this time is manmade Dam and the deepest lake of Taif city, in our way back to Taif we saw 1 bus a group of Hajjs pilgrims going to Wadi Halema to visit the place also.




Article about the Sohada: (Source from good friend)

(Allah has granted special privilege to things and places related to Rasoolullah (PBUH). Hujrathu Shareefah (حجرة الشريفة), the small area where Rasoolullah’s (PBUH) Qabar Shareef is located is described as the best place in earth. Area between Hujrathu Shareefah and Pulpit (منبر) of Rasoolullah’s (PBUH) is described as a garden among garden of the Paradise. 

It is written in history with golden scripts about childhood of Rasoolullah (PBUH) with Halimah (RA). It was a practice in that era that toddlers in city were nursed by villagers who folk the cities for that purpose. Birth parents of babies had found it a useful practice as their babies will gain better physical and mental strength once lived in villages. On the other hand villagers saw it as an opportunity to get some wealth.

Halimah (RA) accompanied by her husband Harith came to Makkah riding on an old and weak animal along with many other women from Saadiyya tribe seeking babies. Because of the weakness of their vehicle they were lagging at rear of the convoy. The frontrunners of the convoy entered the city fast and got babies from wealthy families. 

Halimah (RA) when reached Makkah she couldn’t find a baby from rich families and was sad. She was told about the orphan infant in the house of Abdul Muttalib and went to see the baby. At once she was attracted and after consulting with her husband took the baby.

Subhana Allah… she couldn’t believe it. Suddenly her animal started to run fast as if it got fresh energy from somewhere! It raced ahead of all other vehicles and other women were amazed to see it! Her breast seem to be full with milk which was dry till then and her son Dhamrah (ضمرة) was crying without getting milk!

Such was blessing (بركة) of Rasoolullah (PBUH) even at this infant age. Verily Allah has given this blessing to his beloved Rasoolullah (PBUH). Anything and everything related to Rasoolullah (PBUH) is full with blessings from Allah.

There were many wonders happened during Rasoolullah’s (PBUH) stay with Halimah (RA) and for sure she loved Him more than her own children. The garden surrounding their house became green and blossom. Sheep and cattle became fat and healthy. Their livelihood became easier than ever.

During His (PBUH) stay there on 4th year of age the famous heart splitting incident occurred. It was while He (PBUH) and Dhamrah where grazing their herd when three angels descended and held Rasoolullah (PBUH). They operated his chest and took out the heart. They removed a blood-clot from it and cleansed it with Zam Zam before keeping it back!

Here are a few pictures of the house of Halimah (RA) taken by group of my friend visited the site recently. It is a few kilometers away from Taif. The serenity and village nature of the area is still intact today as the route to this site remains rough and the area is scarcely populated still. Unfortunately this place is obscured like many other historically significant places in Hijaz and there is no easy access for the public.

My friend continues “Alhamdu Lillah! Allah blessed us with the opportunity to enter the house and recite a few Swalats and Adkar)




GHADIR AL BANAT (GIRL’S POND) ORIYA DAM:

After us visit the Wadi Halema, the trippers went to Wadi Liya Town to visit the beautiful Dam and the deep lake of the province, it was called Oriya Dam popularly known Ghadir Al Banat which mean Girl’s pond, this place is very good for photography who loves to take a photo of views and natures, I saw a lot of photos taken from this views, due to my absence of knowledge about this lake I cannot provided the exact length and width and deep, based on our observations the dam is new built and part of Saudi Electric and water company to be used in irrigation.

The things that convinced us to visit this area is to observe the views that we’ve seen in the Google, in our way to the site we took the wrong road and finally the GPS brought us to the other side of the lake, Mr Rashdi Dimakuta quite disappointed, the road is rough and not suitable to his car, some part of the road is rocky and sharp, when we reach the area we embarked and majority of the trippers took the lower entrance of the site but closed, then Datu Ontay took the upper entrance until I reached the abandoned guard house, I was afraid for the group of these monkeys, the biggest among them shouted at me (TRAAAA!!!) I runs back and called the trippers to climb up so that the lake is behind this dam, I lied to them that this lake is big and wide as Lake Lanao, (LOL)


All Trippers hasted climb to the top and Mahid Camid Lucman is the second tripper who reached the top next to me, followed by Mohammad Alsharif, Fahad Madid and Amar Sultan. Manager Seradj told me in jest way ohh! You said it’s a deep lake and wide (INO AYA KATI?) the trippers expected it like what we’ve seen in Google. The trippers happily took selfie and groufie then we moved down to under the tree where our cars parked. The trippers agreed moving to another historical spot the Soq Okadz.


THE DAM:


Construction of dams was well developed in the era of Islam, and they used to build dams in the tracks of flooding valleys as reservoirs of water for agricultural use, irrigation, and to inundate the groundwater wells or to limit the floods that threaten people's lives and homes


The dams were usually built of large uncut and irregular stones, in pyramidal shape. These were large at the base and smaller in the upper part, and the faces towards the water force were graded. They were also covered with a thick layer of plaster. Dams of great heights had their walls reinforced with fine gravel, while large stone slabs were added to the front and tops. Some of these dams have drainage outlets in addition to the channels that carry water to agricultural land. Dams were of varying length, height, width and thickness according to the nature of the land, as well as the quantity of water restriction. These dams in various sizes and construction types’ area testament to the outstanding civilization established by the early Muslims in the field of architecture




SOUK OKAZ (LOCATION OF ANCIENT POETS):

After Ghadir Banat, the trippers moved to northeast of Taif to visit Souk Okaz is situated some 45 KM away from Taif towards Riyad (old Najd). It is marked as a tourist attraction place with some ancient looking structures build over there. The area is around 2KM x 1KM is well compounded and maintained by the authorities. On the way we found a few people at the backdrop of their 4 wheel drives having some chats little far from main road. Other than this the place was deserted without a single soul is seen in nearby vicinity, before the site we took our late lunch at KFC so that every trippers got hungry,

The Souk is located near the Saudi Arabian city of Taif in the Western part of Saudi Arabia. The Ancient Souk Okaz was active at during 542-726 CE and it used to be the largest and most important event of its kind back then. Historically it was more than a marketplace, the souk served as a meeting place for tribal leaders and for people interested in poetry and literature. Many poetry competitions were held at Okaz and this tradition has also been revived in the modern-day Souk.


When trippers arrived to the gate of Souk Okaz, the guards advised us to wait the opening time which is 4:30 in afternoon; I suggest going back to Taif city to visits first the 4 ancient mosques for us to save time and be right back in Souk Okaz, then the trippers took another 45km going back to Taif, before we lift Okaz market I capture some photos,


TRIVIA (FROM A FRIEND’S BLOG)


Places where activities took place in ancient times are considered of high importance by historians and archeologists. They use traces of those localities to study how past human societies lived. Middle Eastern countries have many places of archeological significance because the entire human breed has been evolved in this part of the earth.


Quran and other Heavenly Books narrate history of many Prophets, to name some Nuh (AS), Hud (AS), Salih (AS), Ibrahim (AS), Lut (AS), Younus (AS). Tracing back to history one can find people of all those Prophets were inhabited in present day Arabian countries like Saudi, Yemen, Oman, Jordan, Palestine, Iraq etc.


Sayyiduna Ibrahim (AS) moved his wife Hajar (RA) and eldest son Sayyiduna Ismael (AS) to Makkah which marked a new chapter in history. Jurhum tribe from Yemen met the mother and the son lonely in Makkah and asked their permission to settle in there. Ismael (AS) married from Jurhum tribe and he learned Arabic language from them. All his offspring and tribes to follow settled in and around Makkah, a place mentioned in History as Hijaz. Quraish, the tribe of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) is the prominent among tribes originated from Sayyiduna Ismael (AS).


Arabs especially Quraish tribe was excellent in Arabic literature and poetry. They used to assemble in market areas to read poems and admire its harmony and beauty. For an instance Quran’s unparalleled supremacy in literal content is attributed as a challenge to literature savvy Arab people.


Souq Okaz is such a historic place where poets will gather in evenings and compete with their wordings. It was an old market place popular in dark ages (قرون الجاهلية) where people used to trade goods. Sayyiduna Muhammad Rasoolullah (PBUH) occasionally visited there to preach Islam in public with in His attractive style and voice.


Souq Okaz is situated some 45 KM away from Taif towards Riyad (old Najd). It is marked as a tourist attraction place with some ancient looking structures build over there. The area is around 2KM x 1KM is well compounded and maintained by the authorities. On the way we found a few people at the backdrop of their 4 wheel drives having some chats little far from main road. Other than this the place was deserted without a single soul is seen in nearby vicinity.




FOUR ANCIENT MOSQUES IN TAIF;

The Trippers visit the ancient mosques, located along the road of Wadi Waj of Taif city, the trippers embarked first to Masjed Madhoon, the mosque is closed and seems that no one is praying inside, what I heard is most of the Jens prayed in this masjed. Mr Rashdi Dimakuta tried to open the lock of the mosque and Alhamdulilah it was open, the trippers went inside the mosque and they captured me a photo in front where Imam prayed. Then we climb the Minaret of the mosque until the top, inside is made of clay and wooden materials, the trippers took a selfie and groufie then we moved to the next mosque.

Then, the Trippers embarked again to Masjed Al Kou, we met there a group of European pilgrims and Asian hajis, they were taken a picture inside the yard, the MGI- Trippers went inside the AL Kou mosque, we observed the views of the old mosque I tried to open the old books and the old Qur-an, again I went to the front where the imam prayed and took selfie, beside the mosque is a hug rock and small cave, and we don’t know what that means. The Trippers took a selfie and Groufie then we moved to Masjed Addas,

Masjed Addas is walking distance from Al Kou, we tried to reach by cars, but the mosque is not accessible for car, we tried to go inside the compound where the mosque located but the gate was closed, since that we don’t have enough time, the trippers moved to another mosque, the ancient mosque of Abdullah Ibn Abbas (RA) he is the first cousin of Rasul (PBUH) his mother Ummo’l Fadl was a sister of Maymuna bint al-Kharis wife of Rasul (PBUH), and his father Abbas is uncle of Rasul (PBUH). Sad to say we failed to find the correct way going to this mosque, our cars brought us far from the exact location, the Masjed Abdullah ibn Abbas (RA) is walking distance from Masjed Madhoon, and then the trippers decided to move back to Jeddah at around 4:30pm of August 12, 2016.

When the trippers reach the police checkpoint going to Al Hada zigzag road, the police guard asked our destination, when the police learned that we are Jeddah, he advised us to take the As Sayl road going to Jumom, every trippers got disappointed instead we embarked to the road going to Ramada hotel and took our half hour rest with hot coffee and alhamdulilla finally we reached home Jeddah at 8; 30pm same date.


• Masjed Madhoon; where the prophet Mohammad (PBHU) stone by the disbelievers of Taif, In Ta’if, the Prophet (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) first met the chiefs and leaders of Thaqif whom he invited to accept Islam. They were, however, rude and discourteous in their treatment of the Prophet (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam). Not being content with their insolent reply, they even stirred up some gangs of the town to harass him. These riff-raffs followed the Prophet (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam), abusing and crying and throwing stones on him, until he was compelled to take refuge in an orchard. The Prophet (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) consequently had to endure even more obstacles in Ta’if than he had to face in Mecca. These jerks based on either side of the path threw stones at him until his feet were injured and smeared with blood. These oppressions grievously dejected the Prophet (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam), whereby being in such a state of depression, a prayer citing his helplessness and pitiable condition and seeking the aid of God spontaneously came thru his lips:

• Masjed Al-Kou; where the Prophet Mohammad took rest after he was hurt by the people of Taif, the Angels of Allah (SWA) came to him for a rescue and in revenge, instead he asked the Angels to pray and Ask Allah that people of Taif will understand Islam, in addition to incident, some Jen of Taif witness the situation and they who believe the Prophet and they took Sahada.

One hadith narrated that Aisha (RA) reported: She asked the Prophet, “Have you encountered a day harder than the battle of Uhud?” The Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Your tribes have troubled very much, and the worst was the day of Aqaba when I presented myself to Ibn Abd-Yalail ibn Abd-Kulal and he did not respond to what I intended. So I departed, overwhelmed with excessive sorrow, and I could not relax until I found myself at a tree where I lifted my head towards the sky to see a cloud shading me. I looked up and saw Gabriel in it. He called me saying, “Allah has heard your people’s saying to you and how they have replied. Allah has sent the Angel of the Mountains to you that you may order him to do whatever you wish to these people.” The Angel of the Mountains greeted me and he said, “O Muhammad, order what you wish. If you like, I will let the mountains fall on them.” The Prophet said, “No, rather I hope that Allah will bring from their descendants people who will worship Allah alone without associating partners with him.” Source: Sahih Bukhari 3059, Sahih Muslim 1759

• Masjed Addas; where Prophet Mohammad offered food and drink by Addas a Christian man, and he was the first person in Taif who embraced Islam and believed the Prophet and took sahada, a great man who lend a helping hand to Allah’s Messenger Muhammad Rasoolullah (PBUH) while He was in a bad condition of being mistreated by people of Taif

It a long story when Rasoolullah (PBUH) went to Taif to call people there to Allah’s religion Islam. It was in Shawal 10th year after Nubuwwah (became the Prophet) when Rasoolullah (PBUH) traveled himself to preach the great religion to a place outside of Makkah for the first time.

He took Zaid bin Harith (RA), he adopted son for a company and walked through lengthy mountainous pathways to Taif. He had some blood relation through His Mother with people in Taif, the ‘Thaqeef’ tribe. After receiving harsh treatment and negation from Makka infidels, He took a chance that His relatives in Taif might allow Him to propagate Islam there.

But the reception and treatment of people in Taif was just the reverse and unbearable. Rasoolullah (PBUH) had to return sadly after being offended even physically and hit by stone on His sacred leg. He took shelter in a grape field owned by Utbah and Shaibah bin Rabeea’h (both were infidels from Makkah who were killed at Badar battle). They were watching the event but felt sympathy and engaged their farmer Addas to offer a bunch of grapes to Muhammad (PBUH).

Addas, a Christian from Nineva (a place now in Iraq to where Prophet Younus (AS) was sent by Allah) watched Rasoolullah (PBUH) reciting name of Allah (بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم) before eating a grape. To his astonishment he found that is something he didn’t hear from people over there. So he quizzed Rasoolullah (PBUH) and understood that the man in front of him is the Messenger of Allah.

Without a second thought he embraced Islam and became the first believer from Taif (RA). See, this is Allah’s rule! He will guide those He wishes to right path! Owners of the grape field knew Muhammad (PBUH) from childhood, but they couldn’t believe in Him. Relatives of Rasoolullah (PBUH) in Thaqeef tribe knew Him for a long time, but they couldn’t believe Him at this time. But a man came from a faraway land has believed to Allah and His Messenger. Subhana Allah… May Allah guide all those who read this post to right belief.

Masjid Addas is constructed at the place this event happened. It is a cool and nice place with good vegetation around. Allah’s Messenger (PBUH) had prayed for benefit of people in Taif though they refuted Him. This shows utmost mercy, simplicity and forgiving nature of Allah’s beloved (PBUH) about whom Allah has mentioned “Truly, You are with high esteem of characters”.

We have a small ray of hope here as we believe and love Rasoolullah (PBUH) and try with humble efforts to propagate the religion He taught. So with His superior characters He had forgiven to those who offended, we expect He won’t forget us in the vast assembly (محشر) in the Day of Judgment. He will offer us a drink from ‘Kouthar Lake’ (حوض الكوثر) and save us with His recommendations (شفاعة) when we might be in trouble there.

• Masjed Abdullah ibn Abbas (RA): There are many companions of Rasoolullah (PBUH) who came in glow of fame for many reasons. One would feel their greatness upon knowing their tremendous love towards Rasoolullah (PBUH) and the superior religion He had propagated. They have made incredible contributions to Islam with their admirable lifestyles, relentlessness in acquiring and teaching Islamic knowledge and keenness in preaching and spreading Islam to anybody they meet.

Our discussion is about one of closest companions of Rasoolullah (PBUH) and one among many children who were with and around Him. It is Abdullah ibn Abbas (RA), son of Abbas ibn Abdul Muttalib (RA) uncle of Rasoolullah (PBUH). His mother is Lubabah al Kubrah bint Harith (RA) also known as Umm Jameel. She was close friend of Khadeejah al Kubrah (RA) and among initial believers of Islam.

He was only 13 years old when Rasoolullah (PBUH) departed this world. But even this brief companionship with Rasoolullah (PBUH) in his childhood lead him to be called ‘Raeesul Mufassireen’ (رئيس المفسرين) – leader of interpreters of Qura’n. He is also called as ‘Al Bahr’ (البحر) – the Sea because of abundance of his knowledge. Hibrul Umma (حبر الامة) – Ink of the Nation is another title attributed to him because of literature he submitted for the Ummah.

He attained this enviable position because of the guidance he got from Rasoolullah (PBUH) and dua’ He made for him after drawing him close and patting his shoulders “O Allah, bless him with the full knowledge of the religion and interpretation of the Holy Qura’n”. Allah’s Messenger (PBUH) repeated this dua in various occasions.

There is no question on his command on Qura’n interpretation. But vastness of his knowledge won’t stop there. He was a great authority in Islamic jurisprudence (فقه), History and Arabic language literature. He relocated to Taif in latter part of his life and met his last breath there. His Qabr in Taif is among few ones preserved by recent rulers of Arabian Peninsula. A big Masjid is constructed beside his Qabr.

A Library is established near his Qabr by Turki governor of Hijaz (Old name of area enclosing Makkah and Madinah) Muhammad Rasheedi Pasha Al Sharwani in 13th century hijri. Scholars and travelers during 7th and 10th century hijri used to endow (وقف) many books and manuscripts in Masjid ibn Abbas. In 1217H number of books there reached almost 10,000, a big number considering that age!




Taif, some 80KM away from Makkah in direction of Najd (Riyadh) has much historical significance. It is a hill station over gorgeous desert of Hijaz with pleasant weather and good plantation. I might write on ABWA in another post (ان شاء الله) Thanks and Wassalam (DATU ONTAY)

12 SPRINGS OF PROPHET MOSES AS @ ELM MEDIAN

SURATOL BAQARA AYAT 60

وَإِذِ اسْتَسْقَى مُوسَى لِقَوْمِهِ فَقُلْنَا اضْرِب بِّعَصَاكَ الْحَجَرَ فَانفَجَرَتْ مِنْهُ اثْنَتَا عَشْرَةَ عَيْناً قَدْ عَلِمَ كُلُّ أُنَاسٍ مَّشْرَبَهُمْ كُلُواْ وَاشْرَبُواْ مِن رِّزْقِ اللَّهِ وَلاَ تَعْثَوْاْ فِي الأَرْضِ مُفْسِدِينَ

 About 19 Kilometers from the house of Prophet Showaib AS, we proceeded to Al Magna municipality where the 12 springs of Moses and the 70 Palms dates located, in that area there were many tourists, we’ve thoughts that we are only Filipinos tourists in that place but we met a group of Filipinos from Islamic guidance who were touring also. When we reached the springs of Moses AS, everybody was amazed on the formation of the water, imagining mountain in the desert and water coming out in it, thinking that what is the sourced of that water? Really a miracle of ALLAH SAW, we took Selfie and Groufie and I asked Nader to pitch from the water and we tested it and the test is similar to the Zamzam water of Makka, we took also from the dates as souvenir and to observe its test in ripe. Then Selfie again, Groufie and the live streaming of IT Mahid Lucman so that some of the trippers’ members failed to come and they were watching true online -Datu Ontay- [click for more photos]

THAIBA AL-ESM THE STRUCK ROCK OF MOSES

SURATOL BAQARA AYAT 50

وَإِذْ نَجَّيْنَاكُم مِّنْ آلِ فِرْعَوْنَ يَسُومُونَكُمْ سُوَءَ الْعَذَابِ يُذَبِّحُونَ أَبْنَاءكُمْ وَيَسْتَحْيُونَ نِسَاءكُمْ وَفِي ذَلِكُم بَلاءٌ مِّن رَّبِّكُمْ عَظِيمٌ


Na gowani na siray Ami rkano so kalodan na siyabt Ami skano na inld Ami so pagtaw o Pir'awn a skano na kababantayan iyo.

When we reached the departed ocean then we walked from the sea to the entrance of the divided mountain going to the struck rock, I asked Al Bangcola to observe the road with his Toyota Hi-lux if it accessible for small car like Yaris and Corolla.  Al Bangcola and some trippers went firs to the entrance, when he came back he advised us to leave the small cars near to the sea and we rode to his Hi-lux going to the main entrance with the KIA Carnival, in the entrance we park the two cars and there is a wooden bridge going to the main way where the descendants of Israel took their way going to Median, the bridge is quite long not to be exact estimated of 120 to 160 meters going down to the next entrance, the height of mountains both sides are estimated of more or less 1000 feet, while we walks to the struck rock we felt that we were part of the people of Moses those ancient time,

While walked we met a Pakistan national returning from the site, I asked how far the end of the way to the struck rock, he said 15 kilometers more and he suggested to go back, its far and it might be till sunset for us to reach the rock, I asked the 21 trippers to go back to the departed  red sea to save time because we are still planning to visit Madain Salih at Al Ulah city which is 579 KM equivalent of 6 hours road way, the trippers took rest at the red sea and ate some snacks, Silfie and Groufie at the back of departed red sea –Datu Ontay- [click for more photos]


THE TRAVEL TO THE NEXT PROVINCE

At exact 2 PM we leaved the area (Median) and took our late lunch at Al Bad city, at 4 pm we moved going to AL Ulah city part of Madina province, took our snack at Al Duba city, took our way going to Tabuk city and re-route to Al Ulah to the new road, we took the new road leading to Al-Ulah, and passed many human inhabited, few gasoline stations and mosques along the way. It was a quite interesting landscape, a sort of Saudi version of the American Wild West. At the entrance to the town of Tabuk we turned right and drove inland for 3 hours kilometers through a hilly landscape, we saw a high hill but the way brought us to the top, I was afraid at first for the steep land with my excitement and shouted for joy when our cars reached the top of the hill, Along the way we stayed the cold and fresh air, we saw herds of goats alongside the road and some camels. 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, sunset on our way hour before Al Ulah city and finally we approached the city of Al Ulah at 10PM, more than 1 hours looking for apartment most accommodations in Al Ula were full due to holidays season the eid fitr, Al Hamdulilla we found good accommodations around 11 PM –Datu Ontay- [click for more photos]




AL ULAH AND THE OLD CASTLE

We then continued our Journey to Al Ulah and stayed at the Apartment, a very nice hotel with comfortable accommodations, and cook our dinner. We explored the surrounding area for several hours and then in the evening visited the mud city and fortress at Dedan. Friday Morning at AL Ulah, the trippers took breakfast then took bath went to Masjed to performed Friday congressional prayer, at 2 PM we visited the Al Ulah Castle (more than 2600 of age) located in the north of the City, Ulah is Arabic term for first, referred to the city which is more than ten thousand of age. The trippers embarked to the gate of the castle and climb the tower of the castle, then pictures 2x –Datu Ontay- [click for more photos]


(The older history of the oasis has been divided into several phases. The Dedanite kingdom spans to the seventh and sixth century BC. Dedan is mentioned in the "Harran Inscriptions". In these it is told how Nabonidus the king of Babylonia made a military campaign to northern Arabia in 552 BC or somewhat later, conquering Tayma, Dedan and Yathrib, the old Medina. It is thought that around the turn to the fifth century BC the kingdom became hereditary)

Al-Ula existence on this historical legacy visited by archaeologists as well as political figures and government officials, lovers of nature and desert, hunters and explorers, Al-Ula with its natural agricultural nature and temperate climates makes the visit enjoyable. Mountains and valleys overlaps the strange formations of amazing antiquities and palm groves surrounded with fruits along the valley made beautiful scenery merged with the green color of nature with blue skies and sunshine that reflects on the golden sand. Poets and travelers in old and modern Al-Ula City described the multiple colors surrounding mountain and variations on each of these amazing panoramic painting of Al-Ula in general as magnificent and wonderful place.

Al-Ula is a land of peace and harmony with kindhearted, industrious and loving Arab people. Good relationships between locals and clans are still kept through generations. Visitor would love to stay and spend some time to meditate and experience the harmonious beauty of the traditional town. A place with blue skies, friendly people, fresh air, and environment away from pollution and busy city life, truly, town is still far better than city! The beauty of nature and peaceful life in Al-Ula attracts visitors to plan the next visit and bring some friends to experience this unique opportunity.

A visit in Al-Ula is not complete without seeing the noticeable antiquities in the old town. The pride of historical site in old town shows how local people lived and survived during era of political instability. Cultures, tradition and basic daily life of dwellers in ancient civilization will see on how the people in the old town built their houses. Old town in Al-Ula is still being restored at the expense of His Royal Highness Prince Sultan Ibn Salman Al-Saud in order to preserve its heritage. Old town has played a significant role in developing the new generation of Al-Ua City. –Madainsaleh.net

After we visited the old city and the old castle in Al Ulah, then the trippers proceeded to the old Railway station near Madain Saleh about 30 Kilometer from the city of Al Ulah (Turkish: Hicaz Demiryolu) which was a narrow gauge railway (1,050 mm (3 ft 5 1⁄3 in) track gauge) that ran from Damascus to Medina, through the Hejaz region of Saudi Arabia, with a branch line to Haifa on the Mediterranean Sea. It was a part of the Ottoman railway network and was built to extend the line from the Haydarpaşa Terminal in Istanbul beyond Damascus to the holy city of Mecca. It got no further than Medina, 400 kilometers (250 mi) short of Mecca, due to the interruption of the construction works caused by the outbreak of World War I). This "interruption" was in part assisted by T.E. Lawrence (Lawrence of Arabia). The trippers happily taken their Selfie and Groufie particular on the Museum, multimedia and film showing about this history, this was our chance to reach the historical site since few Filipinos able to visit the area its far and remote –Datu Ontay- [click for more photos]

WHO WAS OSMAN?

was the leader of the Ottoman Turks and the founder of Ottoman dynasty which named after him, his dynasty and him later established and ruled the nascent Ottoman Empire (then known as the Ottoman Beylik or Emirate). The state, while only a small principality (beylik) during Osman's lifetime, would prevail as a world empire under Osman's dynasty for the next six centuries after his death. It existed until the abolition of the sultanate in 1922, or alternatively the proclamation of the Republic of Turkey in 1923, or the abolition of the caliphate in 1924.

Osman announced the independence of his own small principality from the Seljuk Sultanate of Rum in January 17, 1299, and was acclaimed the Khan of the Kayı tribe. The Ottoman principality was just one of Anatolian Turkish beyliks many small Turkish principalities in Anatolia at the time that emerged after the dissolution of the Seljuks, all of which the Ottomans would eventually conquer to reunite Anatolia under Turkish rule. The westward drive of the Mongol invasions had pushed scores of Muslims toward Osman's principality, a power base that Osman was quick to consolidate. As the Byzantine Empire declined, the Ottoman Beylik rose to take its place. (WIKIPIDEA)




THE TOMB OF MADAIN SALEH

In same day of July 08, 2016 we the trippers visited the Tombs of Madain Saleh. (Arabic: مدائن صالح, madāʼin Ṣāliḥ), also called Al-Hijr or Hegra (so in Greek and Latin, e.g. by Pliny), is a pre-Islamic archaeological site located about 30 kilometers from Al-Ulah north, within the Al Madinah Region of Saudi Arabia. A majority of the vestiges date from the Nabatean kingdom (1st century CE). The site constitutes the kingdom's southernmost and largest settlement after Petra, its capital. Traces of Lihyanite and Roman occupation before and after the Nabatean rule, respectively, can also be found in situ, while accounts from the noble Qur’an tell of an earlier settlement of the area by the tribe of Thamud in the 3rd millennium BC.

According to the Islamic text, the Thamudis, who would carve out homes in the mountains, were punished by Allah (SWA) for their persistent practice of idol worship and for conspiring to kill Saleh (an Arab prophet mentioned in the noble Qur'an), the non-believers being struck by an earthquake and lightning blasts. Thus, the site has earned a reputation down to contemporary times as a cursed place, an image which the national government is attempting to overcome as it seeks to develop Mada'in Saleh, officially protected as an archaeological site since 1972, for its tourism potential.

In 2008, for its well-preserved remains from late antiquity, especially the 131 rock-cut monumental tombs, with their elaborately ornamented façades, of the Nabatean kingdom, UNESCO proclaimed Mada'in Saleh as a site of patrimony, becoming Saudi Arabia's first World Heritage Site.

Since that this was my second visit to the site, I was asked by manager Seradj to handle the Nikon camera to take a pictures of the trippers, I suggest to visit first the place which we missed last our trip, from the museum of the Ottoman in Madain, we turned right and embarked the trippers to wide and amazing old archeological arts, we met there a group of Filipinos headed by a Islam revert, when he saw Ansano bringing a bottle of water, the Filipino motwa called my attention to informs the members of trippers to avoid drinking water or eating foods inside the tomb,  he added that it was written in a hadith that to say “astagfirullah” in everything we seen in the area, the place was cursed by ALLAH (swa) and it is still cursed.

After the first stop, we moved to other tomb, the word largest tomb called ALFARID, the trippers took some photos and we moved to temple of Al Hidjr, we climb the hill to the peak while other trippers failed to reached the top of the mountain, it was a record and honor of our group that Ms. Nahara “LIK-LIK” H. Taha was the first Filipina female who reached the top of that mountain,

After that temple we mill around to each possible site in Madain Salih, and IT Mahid took his effort to captured video at the back of Toyota Hi-lux for the live streaming, until such manager Seradj ordered to move back the trippers to Yanbu city, at exact 5:40 PM, the trippers went out from Madain Salih and moved their way to Yanbu City. –Datu Ontay- [click for more photos]




GOING BACK TO YANBU STAYED IN AL RAIS WHITE BEACH

After us visits the tomb of Madain Saleh, the Trippers fill their cars to the near gasoline station and they started the 4 hours journey to Yanbu, we took the shortcut road going to Al Ais city instead of Madina al Monawara. the trippers passed by several towns, like  Mogayra, Masader, Muraba, Al-Qrash, Al-Ais, while on the way, we stopped at the gasoline station in Mothalath to fill again our cars, then Ansano drove my cars for 200KM/Hour, we were shocked when the KIA Carnival driven by Allan Madriaga overtook our car which was running for 180-190km/hr,

The trippers stopped again at Foqqa’ali town to have our dinner in a kabsat’s restaurant along the hi-way, the trippers prepared the foods that we brought, then manager Seradj ordered some menus from the restaurant, buddle fight in the foods been done and we continued our way to Yanbu. Before Yanbu city we passed by Aswaik town, then Yanbu Nakhel, finally we approached Yanbu city at around 11 PM of July 09, 2016.

Manager Seradj choose to stayed at Al Rais white beach for the overnight camping and morning swimming of the trippers, the Toyota corolla with some trippers already left Yanbu so that Faisal Halil has a duty in the following morning. We let the ladies trippers to stay at the house of Mr and Mrs. Bangcola while the 9 boys’ trippers enjoyed their night camping with swimming at seaside.

Morning of July 10, 2016, the Toyota Yaris with the Emer of the Trippers also left the Yanbu and they safely home in Jeddah at around 12 noon. The KIA Carnival with manager Seradj Abdulhamid left Yanbu afternoon and they reached Jeddah at 6 PM. Thank you Allah (swa) for letting the 21 tripper’s safe in their journey and Alhamdulillah thank you so much for letting me and the trippers in reaching the historic areas and evidence of your greatness (ALLAH HO AKBAR) unlimited Alhamdulliah –Datu Ontay- [click for more photo]

Congratulation Bapa Digong,

I’m appealing to all Meranao-Maguindanao who supported and voted to our brand-new President to please address him as BAPA DIGONG - BAPA RODY, he deserved to be call Bapa (Uncle) as what Aratawata suggested because he claimed one of us, Bapa Digong mentioned that his grandmother is pure Meranao, if the Bisaya call him Tatay why not for us to call him BAPA to expresses our respect and not to be a copy cut, once you call him bapa that means you supported and voted him in this May 9, 2016 election.

Please be noted that mayor Rodrigo Roa Duterte claimed his maternal lineage Meranao with secret Islamic faith (TAQIA), he is the only President of the country who always says Insha allah and praised Allah “SWA” in front of million Filipinos majority non Muslim, He is the Only President came from the Land of Promise, who has a heart to solve the problems of Mindanao and willing to support the Islam in Mindanao. -Datu Ontay-

His Connection to Iranaon

Mayor Digong's mother, Soledad Roa-Duterte, was a public school teacher until 1952 when she retired to assist her husband in his political endeavor. In her Ramon Aboitiz Foundation, Inc. (RAFI) award write-up, she was described as "being familiar with the social and economic problems of the people, especially the out-of-school youth, women, children and the disabled". Even after her husband's death, she continued her involvement in social and civic activities. She faced all the demanding tasks are it in the community or at home. She proved to all that one can serve the community efficiently and faithfully without necessarily occupying an elective public office.

in my own data, Madam Soledad "Nanay Soling" was a daughter of Eleno Roa a Chinese businessman, Eleno was married to Furtunata a lady from Maasin Leyte of prominent family Gonzales and begot Nanay Soling Roa, Eleno Roa is a son of Meranao Datu from the Samporna Clan of CDO-Tagoloan, a direct connected to Sandor of Wato and Iligan, in my researched, Elino's mother from ROA a Chinese clan from tsangmi or Sami, China. Eleno brought the family name of his mother instead of his father's name a Meranao decent because ROA is popular in business in Agusan and Misamis, in short; Rodrigo's mom is 1/4 Meranao but he considered her Meranao instead of Chinese because Eleno's father was a Meranao a pedigree of her line -DATU ONTAY-

LIAMIN is royal Meranao Princess that kept in a Lamin

What is Lamin?

Lamin is a traditional Iranaon restricted dormitory for a royal princess to kept, where she, the royal Princess and her ladies are waiting hid during occasions, it was a traditional way of keeping the royal “baes” those ancient times, adopted during darangen era when the princesses of magnificent Kingdom of Bumbaran kept in a tallest tower and no one could reach there except by the approval of the “Ayonan” chieftain.

Darangen tells us that they kept their princess in safe and fully guarded tower to protect from the invaders, it is great insult to their clan if the Princess were subdued by force. In old Mearano tradition the purposed is to avoid the direct exposure of beautiful princess to the public until such time that she is married, Lamin is also described as lofty tower, fairly tall, impressive looking, deserving to be admired,  decorated with Meranao antique arts like Okir, Sarimanok and Styled of its Panolong and colorful paints.

Meranao Lamin – it is a small room or tower constructed at the top of the Meranao’s Palace “Torogan” to hide the sultan’s daughter during conferences, celebrations and gatherings. Its entrance is always located near the sultan’s bed. This is one way of protecting her modesty, virtue and virginity and chastity by not exposing her in public. This practice is also the Maranao’s way of showing their love, affection, and respect for the sultan’s daughter, though nowadays the practice is no longer extant due to foreign influences and for such education.

Some Lamins mentions in the Darangen are;

  • Lamin of Princess Labiolan Malano a Pindawa-dawa a Oray, it was located at the top of a hug rock in Kiaranda a Ragat and only Prince Bantogun reached the tower.
  • Lamin of Princes Talamatuminugub a Dawadawa a Oray, located on the shoreline of the bay before Guindolongan Marogong, Prince Lumna stayed in that Lamin.
  • Lamin of Sandalinayan Sirig, located in the hidden Island of Pamunagun a Dulum, no one could reach there and only Prince Bantogun reached the Island when the “Tonong” a fairy of Bumbaran brought him in that Lamin, the Tonong carried the Lamin with its Princess to Bumbaran.
  • Lamin of Princess Inambayanan Oray, a Lamin without support from below, it was hang and continuing revolving, no one could enter there except by the approval of the Princess. Inanbayanan Oray a labiolan Payongan is younger sister of Princess Lawanun.
  • Lamin of Princess Somalong sa Ragiray, a Lamin surrounded by fire, snakes and crocodiles, located in the Island of Parapatan a Dulum, Prince Bantogun failed to enter the Lamin, the lady is magician she put him a shameful jokes, Pinatulai Kilid is a crocodile of Bantogun and this alligator was a good friend of the Princess Crocodiles, later the lady allowed Bantogun to enter in her second Lamin the magnanimous one.

TAMPARAN A INAAN-PAGAMAAN

SA PANGAMPONG A MASIU

Datu Ontay Marogong

Tamparan is one of the traditional settlements in Panagampong a Masiu, located on the east of Lake Lanao, between Municipality of Taraka in the north and the municipality of Poona-Bayabao in the south, Lake Lanao in the west and Lumba a Bayabao Municipality in the East.

The name of the town derived from the Meranao root word “TAMPAR” and Tamparan means “Frontage” refer to the full length of this boundary and adjacent to something, the word tampar refers to Amiting and Barao when they were asked for the adjacent in the division of the land, (ANDAKA TAMPARA BARAO AGO ANDAKA AMITING?) they both chose the area and called TIAMPARAN e Maruhom Barao ago si Maruhom Amiting, Tiamparan later pronounced Tamparan by the American officials and became official name of the municipality.

Tamparan became one of the 39 regular Municipalities of Lanao Del Sur, Dated September 28, 1960 by virtue of Executive Order No. 405 and consequently declared Islamic Municipality pursuant to Batasan Pambansa (PB) Bilang 33 on June 4, 1984. Politically subdivided into (44) barangays, belong to the 1st Congressional District of the province.

Way back to the Commonwealth Government of the Philippines, under the late President Manuel L. Quezon. It was in the year 1940 President Quezon issued an Executive Order known as Commonwealth Act No. 592 creating Dansalan (now Marawi City) as regular municipality and Tamparan as its municipal district covering the areas (now municipalities) of Masiu, Taraka, Poona-Bayabao, Lumba Bayabao, Maguing, Molundo, Bumbaran and Wao.

In the website of Tamparan mentioned that during the American occupation, Sultan Mangking Sugador was appointed by the American government as Municipal District President, a position equal to the rank of Municipal Mayor, although lesser in power than the latter.  When he asked by the American’s Officials about his name, the Sultan said “I am the Sultan of Tamparan”, referring to the “dowa ka lokus” of Tamparan (now Tamparan Proper) he was the first crowned sultan of Tamparan sultanate. Sultan Manking Sugador became popular by his royal title that American officials started calling the town Tamparan. Former Lanao del Sur vice Governor and Datu a Cabugatan of Masiu, late Palawan Disomimba also became mayor of Tamparan LDS for several term, succeeded by his son Abdulla Topaan Ditual Disomimba Sultan of the royal house of Masiu to the present.

By tradition, the Masiu Pangampong has 3 traditional districts, however it is tied with one order of consensus, they share the same taritib and descent line with the same male founding ancestor, and each alternates (idal) in supporting the other. They thus form only one district and Lumba a Masiu, Poona Masiu, and Sedepan a Masiu are sometimes identified as sukus and Tamparan belong to Lumba a Masiu.

The Igma and Taritib of Pangampong a Masiu stated that the two patriarchs of Tamparan “BARAO & AMITING are the councils of the elders of the sultanate of Masiu and Tamparan’s sultanate represent as elders of Masiu to monitor and supervises the royal system of Pangampong a Masiu and to be consulted before entrapment of any royal titles within Pangampong a Masiu. Barao and Amiting are the sons of Sharif Angkaya of Masiu a direct descendants of Sharif Mohammad Kabunsoan of Maguindanao, the reigning Sultan of Tamparan is HRE. Sultan Amin Mangking Salomabao, enthroned on July 23, 2011 at Tamparan proper, he will represent the two patriarchs of Tamparan as council of elder of Pangampong a Masiu. Datu Ontay

SALSILA - TARSILA

Ranao’s Silsila or Tarsila is written and memorized by a royal Datu who has posses of it, Jealousy guarded to protect the sensitive topic in it.

Some Tarsilas are sealed and protected guarded by the authorized Datu or Sultan to avoid revealing of some sensitive issue in the Tarsila:

Tarsila tells you the Royal Families, slaves’ families, Servants, DATUS and DUMATOS, and a family of demon, all of these are reasoned why the correct Tarsila are sealed and protected...

By the way; my Tarsila in my Website are from the Original tarsila of my parents from Bayang, Masiu, Wato, Tugaya, Madalum and Binidayan, I just edited it to update and translated it to a English font from the original form KIREM,

TARSILA

The royal sultan and all leading datus possessed tarsila 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 relative’s 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 Tarsila 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,

SULTAN PANGADAPUN BENITO

FIRST MERANAO SULTAN OF MAGUINDANAO
One of the Top 50 Model Sultans of Iranaon
to Inspires the meranao Youth

Maguindanao Sultanate

He was born and raised in Upper Unayan, his parents came from the royalty of Pagayawan, Picong, Tubok and Ganassi. He is the direct descendant of 16th Sultan Kibad Sahriyal Benito of Maguindanao, to his son Sultan Alamansa Dolkarnain, to his son Sultan Qudratulla Untong 18th Sultan, to his son Serongan Sarip Maupaat Amerol Umra of Maguindanao a Datumulok of Sulu, brother of Sultan Mastura of Maguindanao and Datu Dakula of Sibugay Maguindanao, to Datu Ilian (Sharif Maupaat Amerol Omra of Maguindanao)

Accordingly; in the old days the coastal areas of Lanao del sur are part of Maguindanao’s territories (part of the Iranon region), Sultan Laot Boisan and Sultan Dimasangkay were brothers of different mother. Dimasangkay enthroned 4th sultan of Maguindanao right after the death of his father sultan Bangkaya 3rd Sultan of Maguindanao. He, Dimasangkay later succeeded by his half brother Gugu Sarikula 5th Sultan who was contested by his nephew Radjamoda of Maguindanao, son of late Dimasangkay from Bae Maira of Simoay. (Most Iranuns and Meranaos claimed descents from Dimasangkay Adel)

The throne went to the father of Sultan Mohammad Dipatuan Kudarat to settle and pacify the conflict between Radjamuda and Gugu Sarikula to unite the clan. Those days, Mohammad Dipatuan was a Youngman to rule Maguindanao sultanate. Later on, Sultan Laot Boisan relinquished his throne to his son Mohammad Dipatuan Kudarat year 1619. Radjamuda and Gugua gave their full support to Sultan Kudarat when the throne went to him. (Those times Meranaos, Maguindanaos and Iranons were unites under one rule)

After the death of Sultan Kudarat, succeeded by his eldest son Sultan Dundang, some report that he relinquished the throne; the descendants however of Dimasangkay were disappointed, because they expected that after Sultan Kudarat the throne should be went to the direct descendants of Dimasangkay Adel because he is the eldest son. After the death of Sultan Mohammad Dipatuan Kudarat, Meranao and Iranon start bidding their own sultanates and gradually withdrew their sympathy to the sultanate of Maguindanao.

Balabagan Mayor

Balabagan, Malabang, Tubok, Kapatagan and Picong bid for their own Sultanates, however still under the Umbrella of Maguindanao’s sultanate. The Pata Pangampong a Ranao was updated thru the efforts of 8 datus, 15 Royal sultanates were created, 28 legislative bodies were established, 4 boundaries sultanates were formally updated, all of these are strategies to defend Iranaon’s land and tactics to let the Spaniards thought that many sultans to fight.

In the first quarter of 19 century, modern government was introduced to main land Mindanao. Coastal area of Lanao Del Sur became one municipality and name Malabang the oldest town in the Philippine. Datu Esmail Macabato Maruhom (kakay Dilana) first appointed and elected mayor. Kakay Dilana Maruhom was defeated to Amer Macaorao Balindong (sultan of Picong) in re-election on 1953. In the following election; Datu Pangadapun Benito run for mayorship against his cousin and did not succeed. As per local historian Kakay Dilana won against Amer Macaorao Balindong and Pangadapun Benito in the first local election in Malabang. Sultan Macaorao Balindong won against Kakay Dilana and Pangadapun Benito in the second election 1953,

Late Senator Domocao Alonto (may Allah bless his soul) made his decision to separated Balabagan from Malabang and he installed Pangadapun Benito as municipal mayor of Balabagan LDS, to pacify and reconcile him with Mayor Amer Balindong (Sultan of Picong), because he was the political rival of Amer Balindong in Malabang, that was a good Idea for the rivalry of the two datus who were childhood friends, cousin and both Amego guerrilla fighters became political rival. Sultan Amer Balindong remained as mayor of Malabang until Marcos regime.

Few years after, during his incumbency as municipal mayor, there was a feuds “rido” between the people of Sultan of Maguindanao, Pangadapun Benito, mayor of Balabagan, against the natives of Balabagan, many were affected and have killed, the conflict was resolved thru the efforts of Sultan Pangadapun Benito and Senator Domocao Alonto, with the help of other respected Datus.

As a Sultan of Maguindanao

Pangadapun Benito became the Sultan of Maguindanao [because] it was a privilege that was given to him by the Maranao/Iranun datus and to pacify him because there were so many people have killed already in those feuds. Apparently, there was no resistance from the heirs of the late Sultanate of Maguindanao; they did not object to it because they knew the blood connections of Pangadapun Benito to their family line, and his rightful to claim as sultan (The Sultan of Maguindanao whom he succeeded was too old and stood in Sibogay now Pagadian). They were also persuaded by the datus of Lanao led by Senator “Domocao” Alonto not to interfere or not to object because they are pacifying a family war between two great clans.

Mayor Pangadapun Benito recognized as sultan by the royal sultanates of Sulu, Brunei, Johor and also recognized by the president of the Philippines (Ferdinand E. Marcos) and President Suharto of Indonesia as ruling sultan of Maguindanao. His Royal welcome in the Malacanag palace done thru Sultan Mohammad Ali Dimaporo his childhood friends and “BALAIYA”, more recognitions, citations have done local and International.

Sultan Pangadapun Benito is the most deserving among meranao to the throne as sultan of Maguindanao, comparing to other Meranao datus during those time. Aside from his lineage to claim the sultanate, his connections to other strong politicians and respected leaders in Maguindanao-Ranao has been established. *The wife of Sultan and mayor of Binidayan “Muliloda Datumulok” is his niece. *the wife of ex Mayor Macatanao Dalidig of Pagayawan is his niece. *His daughter Bae Monera Benito Maruhom married to the son of Sultan and Mayor of Marogong Abdulmadid “Panondi” Maruhom, now the incumbent mayor Actor T. Maruhom. *His son Datu Otomama Benito married to Bae Sittie Raihanah Dimaporo Benito, daughter of Governor Sultan Ali Dimaporo. *His son Datu Masiding Benito married to the daughter of General Mamarinta Lao, first Muslim General in the Philippines. *The incumbent mayor of Calanogas is his son “Datu Macapado Benito”. *His son Datu Camad Benito was appointed mayor of Kapatagan LDS during the presidency of Corazon “Cory” C. Aquino. *One of his daughters married to Atty. Abdul Azis Amerol Padate son of Hon. Judge Macapandi Marohom Padate, Late Sultan of Tubok. *His son Datu Saipal married to the daughter of Director Mambuay of Wato and more connections to mentions.

In addition to the mentions connections, *Datu Pangcoda former mayor of Pagayawan is his first cousin. *the Sultan and Mayor of Pagayawan “Dirangarun Benito” is his younger brother. *The Mayor of Calanogas “Moktar” is his first cousin. *One of his wives is niece of Sultan and Senator Alauya Alonto (the mother of late Governor Mamintal Adiong first married to him). *His first wife was the sister of Mayor of Wato-Balindong “Datu Epi Mangurun” and Mayor of Kapai LDS. *His son Datu H. Fahad "Kamilo" Balindong Benito married to Dr H. Faida “Edna” Ogka Benito, the incumbent mayor of Balabagan LDS. *His son Atty. Boning Benito was former mayor of Balabagan and father In-law of Hon Jalal Langlang Asum, the incumbent mayor of Lumbayangue LDS.  *His daughter Bae Saida Benito Dagalangit married to the son of Mayor Mangayao Dagalangit of Lumba a Bayabao LDS. That mentions connections are not to raises his chair but to show and defined him as strong leader. Being a leader and Sultan you need strong connections to be able to take the stability and peace in the leadership.

Before as a Sultan and politician

Datu Pangadapun Benito grown up in a humble way with an ordinary life, he grew as potential leader, highly trained for the Igma and Taritib in the royal court of Pagayawan which is one of the 16 royal sultanates of pangampong a Ranao. During the American occupation in Ranao, massive education and socio economic campaign movement had been introduced and even distribution of relief goods all over the country, his parents failed to send him in school because they were thinking for the Christianity conversion if he study for the western education.

At his young age; Pangadapun Benito became active guerilla fighter to defend western Unayan from the Japanese resistance and others intruders who are trying to grabs Iranun’s land in the coastal area. He met 2 others respected and feared datus, Sultan Amer “Macaorao” Balindong and Sultan Abdulmadid “Panondi” Maruhom. The 3 Datus including him, agreed to forms their own guerrilla comrades fighters to protect western Unayan for any possible crimes. Datu Abdulmadid “Titingalupa” Panondiongan Maruhom stayed at the upper of east Unayan and chose Marogong as his own camp with his more than 300 loyal comrades’ guerrilla fighters. Datu Pangadapun Benito stayed at the center of west Unayan, he chose Kodongan in Kalanogas as his own camp with his more than 350 guerrilla fighters. Datu Amer “Macaorao”Balindong stayed at coastal areas and chose Tanaoan in Picong as his own camp with his more than 400 royal comrades’ guerrilla fighters. The three datus became allied, close friends and ‘BABALAIYA” they finally controlled their areas, sometimes they were called 3 Rebel’s commanders of Unayan and labeled most wanted for the Japanese government of the Philippines.

Before as guerrilla commander; he was offered as mayor of Pagayawan, instead; he let his younger brother Sultan Dirangarun Benito to the mayorship of Pagayawan. That time, half of Kalanogas was part of Municipality of Malabang and genealogical part of Pagayawan sultanate, that the reason and made him to run as mayor of Malabang against Kakay Dilana Maruhom and his cousin Sultan Amer “Macaorao” Balindong and did not succeed. Balabagan was created regular municipality from mother town Malabang LDS, and he was appointed first mayor and unopposed in the next election.

He was enthroned 24th Sultan of Maguindanao in 1960 from the line of Sharif Maupaat Amerol Umra of Maguindanao who was a son of 18th Sultan QUDRATULLAH MUHAMMAD ZAMAL UL-AZAM the 18th sultan of Maguindanao, who was a son of Sultan Alamansa Dolkarnain of Maguindanao and that Alamansa controlled the sultanate of Maguindanao exclusive to his descendants and his brother Sultan Kawasa Anuwaroden.

The life of Sultan Pangadapun Benito brought inspiration, courage and hope in many of people in the province of Lanao. He became popular locally and even internationally for his charismatic personality to depend and to help people of whatever it may be in good and bad times, he became adorable and most feared datu, due to his leadership style, very brave and respectable person, Icon in term of leadership. One of his direct descendants told me in a humble way that his grandfather Pangadapun married two ladies in the same day. In the early morning married to a lady in the following afternoon married to another one, he is handsome and courted many ladies, more than 25 out of hundred ladies he courted were married to him, not to be exact and some time he married the lady and divorced early, the sultan bore 37 children and thousand of grandchildren.

Administrative Division of Ranao (Modern and Traditional)
(By. Datu Ontay)

Whereas the administrative division in the Philippines is by province, district, municipality or city, barangay, and purok, the division of the Pat a Pangampong is by pangampong, suku, inged (township arranged around supported descent line), agama (community), and bangon (3-5 families in a area).

Each descent line in the salsila has traditionally certain rights to land, which is usually the joint property of a kinship group. Land to which a community lays claim is called gapa and is subdivided into two categories. The first is kakola, comprising uninhabited land, like forestland, owned in common.

The second is mianggapa, “settled land sub-divided among different kinship groups and classified under private ownership,” since it was “acquired by prior use and continued occupation” (Fianza 2004: 33; Saber and Tamano 1985-86: 114). Usually the sultan distributed free land. In case a farmer abandoned the land, the sultan could assign it to someone else. Those farmers working on the land generally gave parts of the harvest to the sultan (Madale 1996: 26). A study from 1989 found that the traditional modes of land acquisition and ownership continued

 


The Sultanate of Ramain is one of the 16 royal sultanates in the 4 base “Pangampong” state, firstly ruled by Datu Acari with exclusive title as “Simbaan sa Ramain” is means feared lord, succeeded by several sultans all of them were his direct descendants, to mention some; the popular Sultan and first Muslim senator of the Philippine and panoroganan “Sulotan Alauya Alonto” who was succeeded by panoroganan Sultan Rakiin Alos Macarampat former mayor of Ramain for several term 1964-1992 and featured sultan in this article.

Late Sultan Rakiin Macarampat is one of our top 50 model Sultans/leaders to inspires the youth, because of his excellent records as Sultan and mayor of Dutsaan-Ramain, Lanao del sur.

Imams, Kali and Guro in Pata Pangampong a Ranao,

The royal houses and the mbabaya are, respectively, the chiefs of the executive and the legislative powers, while the ulama constitute the judiciary. Thus, in case there is a violation of established rules, the mbabaya will “bring the matter to the attention of the panoroganan for him to call for a council. After the council’s deliberation, they will submit their findings to the ulamas” and Iman and Kali shall give appropriate penalty to violator 

The ulama are classified into three groups: imams, kallis (qadis), and gurus.

1)      The Imam is the head leader “in the observance and performance of the five pillars and the six articles of faith in Islam. He is the ultimate keeper and custodian of the mosque and the executive authority about the Islamic religious affairs in the community.

2)      The Kalli (Qadi) has the authority in matters of justice based on sharia law, who renders decisions according to the Shariah, the canon law of Islām, The qadi hears only religious cases such as those involving inheritance, pious bequests (waqf), marriage, and divorce, though theoretically his jurisdiction extends to both civil and criminal matters.

3)      The Guru is the teacher of Islamic knowledge, responsible in spreading the Islamic belief and educations,  may provide instruction in literacy and numeracy, craftsmanship or vocational training, the arts, religion, civics, community roles, or life skills.

Every domain has its own taritib but there is also a common structure for the whole Pat a Pangampong. The sultanates have one law, even though the protocol might be different in each unit. Every sultanate has its own set of sultans, bais, and datus, Imams, Kalis and Guros but it is against the taritib to establish another royal house or mbabaya without the consensus of the 16 and 28 sultans. Thus, there is a certain control and an all-encompassing taritib.

 English views! 

On their way to Butig . . . In Pagalongan Umpas asked her women to rest some time so she could wash her face in the river. Punduma said from this time on this river should be called Pagalongan [mirror] because her beauty [was shown there]. On their way, Punduma asked his boy to go ahead “and when you arrive in our place, you use my agong to inform the people.” He told him: “If they will ask why, you tell them that I found a girl,” because he was the leader but did not have a wife yet. The boy did so and the people from Ragayan were running to meet them and said: “Punduma is marrying and we almost live along the way.”

And the people from Timbab, they ran, stumbled, and hit their heads to make sure that when the people from Malalis announced the arrival of Punduma, they got to play the native drums to welcome him before they proceeded to Dolangan. And then they had to meet the Punduma and so they prepared food in Dolangan, sweet food, and they ask the people ahead of them, in Malalis: “If you see the Punduma, shout so we can prepare.”

But before they reached Butig, they passed through Macadar, the place of the uncle of the Punduma (the brother of his mother). The uncle would not allow the Punduma to continue unless they proved to Umpas that the Punduma is their friend, so they should not worry, because the guy who found her was the leader. So they continued to Butig, when they arrived they had kind of an engagement party.

And the people in the place told him about what happened, he said: “You people from Ragayan, you were there, you were running very fast; your place should be called Ragayan [running in a rush]. People from Timbab, you stumbled and you hit your head; your place should be called Timbab. The place where you prepared the food shall be called Dolangan [native tray]. And the people ahead of me who were shouting when I was arriving should be called Malalis, because in Maranao lalis is shouting.” So the people asked him: “From now on, you are confirming that we have these places; what power do we have?” “The one who will be sultan here in Unayan has to pass through you; [you] should be the one

 



The 7 seven Districts of Pangampong a Ranao
(Submitted article)


The taritib was initially divided along the four major local descent lines of the datus. Later, they were subdivided into seven major descent lines and respective districts (sukus). 

The Royal House of Masiu is divided into two Royal Houses: the Sultan sa Masiu and the Cabugatan sa Masiu (Crown Prince of Masiu). However, they share the same taritib and descent line with the same male founding ancestor, and each alternates (idal) in supporting the other. They thus form only one district. Lumba a Masiu, Poona Masiu, and Sedepan a Masiu are sometimes identified as sukus. However, when defining sukus as a subdivision of a pangampong according to descent lines with equal authority, each suku containing four Lawmakers, Masiu has no suku.

The genealogy of the Royal House of Baloi has linear connections with the Five Datus down to the first titleholder of the Royal House; thus, the taritib of Baloi was not subdivided.

The taritib of Bayabao split along the descent lines of three brothers, the sons of Popawan, developing three sukus in Bayabao.


Paskan sa Unayan had five sons, also called apos, which makes them all titled. However, the taritib of Unayan was only subdivided into two sukus. It is said that it was subdivided into five parts at the beginning but that some of the lineages, among them the Iranons declared independence. (Balabagan, Tubok-Malabang, Picong, Noron of Kapatagan and Matanog Barira and Boldon)


In summary, the four principalities Bayabao, Baloi, Masiu, and Unayan, derived from four major bloodlines out of the Darangen, thus from ancestors who gave rights to the places but not rights to royal titles since at this time intermarriages with Sharief Kabungsoan and Alawi had not yet taken place. The major lineages further branched, forming seven lineages that were accompanied by the development of respective sukus, as can be seen in the following map and table.


Maranaos frequently claim that they are Iranons and that “Maranao” is a misnomer used to divide and rule the Moros. A similarity in language between the Iranons, Maranaos, and Maguindanaos supports this claim, which supposes that the Iranons were there first. Some of them went to Maguindanao, others went to Lake Lanao and became labeled Maranao, which means lake dwellers.

BAE A LABI KO RAMAIN, DUTSAAN AGO SHAKBA 

Bae a Labi is the highest royal rank for a female meranao which is equivalent of queen in the certain area, the word Bae a Labi is composed of two words “ BAE means female or lady” and “LABI” extra or more, therefore  “BAE A LABI” means extra ordinary female of Ranao-Maguindanao royalty.

Also for women, new titles can be invented. In one case, a potential bai a labi was asked to carry the title of the bai a labi of a certain place. When she learned that there already was a bai a labi of this place, she demanded to be granted a different title (Bai A Labi a__?__) which did not exist before in order to avoid conflict or to share and divide title into more. The sultan is the head of the sultanate. The bai a labi is his symbolic counterpart “ Matag Lumba a garar” with very less power.

SULTAN PAPARO “HADJI NOOR” MALACO
SULTAN OF THE ROYAL HOUSE OF LUMBATAN 1980-2002

One of the Top 50 Model Sultans of Ranao

As per the record of the royal house of Lumbatan, only the male line of Maruhom Jaman and Maruhom Milupus could ascend to the throne as Sultan of Lumbatan by alternate rule of succession, and the male line of Maruhom Adel brother of Maruhom Jaman and Maruhom Milupus is exclusive for the Dagook Sultanate.

The first enthroned sultan of Lumbatan was Datu Mardan legally known Maruhom Jaman of Lumbatan with a specific title as Sultan Marug of Lumbatan sultanate, followed by his son Sultan Mangotara 2nd sultan, succeeded by Sultan Lominog 3rd sultan, succeeded by Sultan Abagon son of Mangotara 4th sultan, the throne went to Sultan Ingatan 5th sultan, the throne went also to Sultan Lomabao 6th sultan, followed by Sultan Macalanggan 7th sultan, then Sultan Gaorak 8th sultan, and Sultan Colonel Darangina Pascan as 9th Sultan of Lumbatan.

Sultan Paporo “Hadji Nor” became 10th sultan of Lumbatan when Sultan Col. Darangina Pascan relinquished his throne as sultan to him; that time, Sultan Darangina Pascan unable to perfumes his duty as sultan of Lumbatan so that he was re-assigned to Visayas and Luzon to fulfilled his duty as full pledged military colonel, and his father advised him to vacant the sultanship and gave it to the incumbent Datu a Cabugatan of Lumbatan,

Amai Darangina went to Hadji Nor Paporo and told him to be prepared in the coming MOROD that they decided and his son Sultan Darangina to relinquished the throne and he will be his successor, Hadji Nor Paporo humbly replied to Amai Darangina that he wants Sultan Darangina to keep the throne even he was assigned outside Ranao, but Amai Darangina insisted that he can’t allowed his son to disobey the Igma and Taritib and he was afraid of heaven’s wrath and to the sins 

The Incumbent Datu a Cabugatan “Paporo” was enthroned 10th Sultan of Lumbatan when Colonel Darangina turned over his responsibility as a sultan to Paporo “Hadji Nor“ Malaco, the enthronement and proclamation was done on the middle part of 1980 at Poblacion Lumbatan Lanao del sur, attended by the 16 Panoroganan of Ranao headed by late Sultan Ali Dimaporo of Masiu chairman of 16 royal sultans and also attended by the 28 m’babaya ko Taritib headed by Sultan Muliloda Datumulok Dimaporo chairman of 28 legislative councils.

Sultan Paporo was born on February 01, 1920 by his parents Datu Mangoranda Malaco and Bae Ambua Candia Malaco late Potremaamor sa Unayan, both his parents came from noble families in Unayan particular in Lumbatan, Lalapung, Bayang, Binidayan, Lumbayanague and Butig. The sultan had childhood life in Lumbatan LDS where he studied for primary and elementary grades, when he reached 18 of age; he joins USAFE as veteran's soldiers to fight the Japanese army on 1942 and one of the delegated soldiers were sent to Malabang when the Japanese army occupied the area.

Before his life as sultan, he was a public servant; enthroned Datu a Cabugatan of Lumbatan sultanate, elected Barangay chairman of Poblacion Lumbatan LDS from 1965-1970, at the same time President of Mahad Lumbatan Al Islamia one of the largest Madrasa school in Unayan 1963-2002,

In his devotion to Almighty Allah, Sultan Paporo spent most of his wealth in constructing of his Masjed with the supports of Lumbatan’s constituents, appointed president of Lumbatan Jamah Masjed in 1975-2002, the construction of that masjed started before he was proclaimed as Sultan and very influential leader during his reign on 1980-2002.

Sultan Paporo was very down to earth; he was very active when it comes for the peace and order in his sultanate and brave if the “MARATABAT” dignity disrespected, his family including his sisters, brothers, nieces and nephews are hospitable to the visitors, relatives and friends. I witnessed their hospitality when I visited him and his family in Lumbatan on 1998 in his house; I felt that he is the second grandfather to me for his kind and soft way of handling the needs, his brother the retired PNP Chief, his young brother Director Paporo and the rest of his family are worthy relatives and I’m very thankful to his sister ina bae a “Tanto” Tantoataw in her longer name who have shared me the historical background of Lumbatan from their Salsila during my visit in her store on 2008,

Sultan Paporo proud to his family, his biological parents, parents-in-laws Abdulrahmam Manarapes Macarampat a former Imam of Lumbatan and Bae Palaoki Amai Pondiong Tiborom a former BAE a LABI of Lumbayanague, has never been engaged in any feuds conflicts “RIDO” in their existence down to their descendants in the present time.

SULTAN LAGUINDAB MARUHOMSALIC POLAO DIPATUAN

LATE SULTAN OF THE ROYAL HOUSE OF GANASSI

One of the TOP 50 Model Sultans of Iranaon

What is the essence of promoting and recognizing the legacies of a good leader? Off course, to define the leader and his leadership services, styles, techniques and how he became popular, I believe that leadership is something that you are born with and that is defined by the choices and actions you take in your life.

Below, I have shared you the short highlight of a traditional leader whom we consider one of the top 50 most influential sultans of their time and model leader for the present generation of Ranao because he met the suggested qualifications and criteria in selecting a good model leader, to inspires the young meranao, motivate and hopefully give us an understanding that leadership is not just found in a decorated room with a gold spoon and silver plate. 

Late Sultan Laguindab Maruhomsalic Polao Dipatuan of the Royal sultanate of Ganassi was crowned sultan of the royal house of Ganassi on his young age; he was the noble descendant of Balindong and Dipatuan of Ganassi, and his turn as sultan is from the line of Maruhom Polao and Maruhomsalic two of the 6 Maruhoms of the sultanate of Ganassi.  Sultan Laguindab was also known as “AMAI MANGBALO” denotes father of mourned for loved one and he was most adored sultan for his leadership style in Ganassi, he made his sultanate peaceful and zero % for crimes because of his charismatic approach to the people, with a highest numbers of family feuds settled, he also fought the invaders of our land when he lead his people marched to Malabang in defends from the Japanese Army on world war II,   

As per the information from one of his direct descendants; Sultan Laguindab had 40 wives, the reasons why he married ladies were to sustain and sheltered although personal matter was not really involved, with hundreds of children and thousand of grandchildren,  Some of his direct descendants this present time are also honorable and worthy leaders, olamas, politicians, professional and respected lawyers in Ranao, particular in the second district of lanao del sur, to mentions some, like ARMM Assemblyman Hon. Abdulmalik P. Laguindab, Sharia Court Judge Hon. Rasad Sarip Laguindab, mayors and board members of LDS, Hon. Mangotawar Balindong Laguindad.

Sultan Laguindab Amai Mangbalo was the son of Porna Polao Marohomsalic, holds Arabic degree and highly mastered in traditional law and custom which aid him in settling feud, who served the sultanate of Ganassi as life time sultan. Note; this brief highlight of the sultan is subject for revision to add more data about his records as public servant.

The Sultan subsequently receives numerous citations, to mentions some is “the highest award in management Studies” by the business school of Ateneo de Manila in 1975.

Sultan Sabdullah Pacasum was recommended for presidential citation when he came to the aid of more than 3000 pilgrims to Makka who were stranded, he was also awardees of most outstanding district custom collector by late President Ferdinand E. Marcos, during his time as regional district customs.

In articles of Jakarta globe published in Indonesia, the writer mentioned that he became close friend of the sultan when he met him in detention and protection center in Camp Crame Manila when the sultan was sometime detained for the charge of Rebellion during the Marcos regime, the writer supposed to cover the cause of rebellion in Mindanao 10 years back,

He also cited that the sultan was given a VIP treatment in the Jail center as respect of his being a great sultan of Baloi, and he added that during the detention period of the sultan he was visited by the sultan of Sulu (Mohammad Mahakuttah A. Kiram) for several times to help him out of Jail and sometime they discoursed the sensitive topic about the rightful claim of the Sultanate of Sabah and the Marcos government.

The Sultan had many interesting related histories during his time and I want to mention some interesting part, I will begin the story when Datu Revie Sani (son of Sultan Pundoma Sani) stay with me in my apartment at Al Guwaiza Jeddah KSA, he always communicating with one of the daughters of the sultan, I have no knowledge that he was married to her, one time he showed me the picture of Miss Angel Lucsin of the showbus and told me that Ms Lucsin was the niece of his wife and I resisted really? That time; Mss Lucsin didn’t yet confirm her connection to the sultan, Revie called the daughter of the sultan and she sent us picture of Lucsin when she was lad in the palace of the sultan, and her real name is “Angela” few months after; I watched Boy Abunda interviewed Lucsin about her being a granddaughter of a royal sultan, I knew the full story Datu Revie have shared me the version of his wife.

Going back to the respected sultan, married to Hadja Sittie Norlainie a B.S. Chemical engineering graduated in Mapua Institute of Technology; B.S. in Business Administration graduate and Master in Business Administration at Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Maynila, they graced with three children, Dulce Almira, Goldilynne and Sabdula Ali Pacasum Jr.

He married also to Bae Maomina Mangotara Pacasum of Baloi and had three children namely; Sabdulah III, Princess Maomina Dayana, and Prince Muaddib Mikunug which is a CPA at the moment; he had also two daughters, who are now living in abroad, Ms Caroline and Preciosa Peachy Pacasum, 

The Sultan traced his lineage from the 7 Maruhom of Baloi and to the 5 datus of Marawi who were the children of Datu Gomisa of Marawi to Potre Bayombong of Unayan the daughter of Ameladen a Macapundag from Rogot a bae popular in Salsilla as Potre Daragat, the only daughter of Sharif Kabunsoan of Maguindanao to Potre Angintabo of Malabang. His claimed as Royal Sultan of Baloi is from the turn of Maruhom Sarip one of the 7 Maruhoms sons of Bae Amensalam and Alao of Dutasaan-Ramain. He held the throne as Sultan of Baloi for more than ten years 1980-1992; as per the new Taritib of Baloi sultanate, the term of the sultan is fixed at five years, through a covenant signed by the representatives of 7 Maruhoms and the Committee of elders in accordance with the existing Igma and Taritib of Pangampong a Ranao. 

Makalilay later descendants was Datu a Kunug who was married to putri Linta granddaughter of Dianton of Butig begot five children, they could assumes the royal throne in Madaya, the reigning Sultan sa Madaya is the former Governor of Lanao del sur, Sultan Saidamen Balt Pangarongan from the line of Radiamoda sa Punud one of the five children of Kunug.

SULTAN MESUG D. CALACA
(Brief Highlight)

  • Sultan of MAUL-MARANTAO
  • Former Vice Governor of LDS 1965
  • Former Provincial Treasure LDS
  • Former Municipal Mayor of Marantao LDS

One of the model leaders of Ranao came from the sultanate of Maul Marantao, who has served his Sultanate and the people of Ranao until the last portion of his life, as a sultan, mayor, provincial treasurer and to his dedication to rendered public services, the sultan became vice governor of Lanao del Sur in 1965, enthroned Sultan of Maul-Marantao several years before he was elected as provincial vice governor.

The sultan was legally known as Datu Ameroding Mesug D. Calaca, both his parents came from the prominent royal clan of Marawi-Marantao, he was born on January 10, 1933 at Raya Madaya one of the united royal sultanates of Marawi.

The big assets of the sultan was his being unassuming, approachable, who always take time to listen to the need and concerned of his constituents even in his busy time, He has helped the education of the young Imarantaon through Datu Calaca Memorial High school located in the municipality of Marantao LDS.

On the last part of his life, he continued serving his people as sultan by assisting modern leaders in settling family feuds, attending royal occasions, wedding ceremony and monitoring his sultanate through his relatives who were with him most of time, the sultan always been remembered for his great participations in the Sultanates of Ranao and we consider him one of our model leaders to inspires young Meranao to follow his footsteps.

Genealogy: in my owned personal account SALSILA, the sultan traced his lineage from our ancestor Gomising of Maranao who was married to Ayon a Bae of Tagoloan both direct descendants of Sharif Alawi of Tagoloan and Sharif Kabuansoan of Maguindanao, the Pata datu of Pangampong a Ranao, Amerogong, Botawanun, Dimaampao and Bataraan.

Datu Alos begot Datu Tanog and Datu Domaob, Datu Tanog begot Datu Calaca the father of Sultan Mesug Calaca of Maul-Marantao.

Pilandokistan in Perspective

(Arata Wata’s views) GRAR FOR SALE

Tonight, I had a lengthy discussion with Dora, the Senior Foreign Correspondent of the Pakbol.Daily, over cups of miso soup, grilled salmon teryaki, uncooked sashimi and lots of sushi.

Among the many topics we discussed was the on-going crisis in Pilandokistan caused by the conferring of a "grar" or royal title to Senator Mar Roxas.

According to a Tausog brother, the royal titles in Pakbolabad are now for sale, "traintai singko" or thirty five cents a crown. Mkkkk...

The truth is Mar Roxas is not the first "saruang a tao" or foreigner who was conferred a royal title by an organization of Ranao Sulutans. Many years ago Miss Korina Sanches, now the wife of Mar Roxas, was conferred a royal title of "Bai a Labi", some Pakbol says "Bai a Labi a Baos". Mkkkkk...

There are many other saruang a tao who were conferred royal titles but Pakbol, Pasbal and Paoshad didn't make big deal out of them. They know those are just for fun. Royal titles in Ranao are obtained by blood lineage all the way to the Chinese Muslim who brought Islam to the archipelago, Sharief Ka Bun Suan or the Darangen super hero Rajah Indarapatra. Mkkkkkkk...

So what made this latest royal title coronation different from the previous ones? What really caused Pakbol rage this time?

The short answer is the person it was awarded to. Any other saruang a tao or politician from the North would have been wokay. Mar Roxas is a problem. The memory of Mar Roxas staunch opposition to the MOA was still fresh, thus the Pakbol rage, and rightly so. Giving him a grar is a total disrespect to Pakbol.

Interestingly, one of the complaints against Mar Roxas is that he is a proven Islamophobe but is he really?

Let's see. He received the "grar" from a group of Muslim Sulutans and politicians who are his bata-bata or political proteges in Muslim Mindanao and who promised him the Muslim votes. If he was a real Islamophobe would he even consider to be crowned a Muslim royal title? Can you imagine Donald Trump accepting the title, Sulutan a Samporna from The Royal People's Muslim Democratic Republic of Pilandokistan? Mkkkk

On the issue of the MOA, did he try to destroy the Muslim Mindanao Autonomy? Was the MOA trying to establish a greater autonomy for the Muslims or for a secular Bangsa a Moro that groups the Muslims, Lumads and Christian settlers greatly diluting the Muslim character of the autonomy?

Mar Roxas is not an Islamophobe but a Morophobe. Mkkkkkkkkk...

Actually, by definition, the real Islamophobe are the few tens of thousands of Moros among the Muslims because they are the ones who want to destroy the Muslim Mindanao autonomy and replace it with a secular Bangsa a Moros autonomy. They are also saying that Muslim is a terrible identity; the proper identity is the Spanish insult Moros, thus, the Bangsa a Moros. Makes sense? Mkkkkkkkkk...

Anyway, there are many "*phobes" in the Pilipins. There are the PNoyphobe, Binayphobes and even Dutertephobes.

DATU AND SULTAN FOR SALE!

(Only in Pilandokistan the royal kingdom of Aratawata)

I remember my previous post regarding the royal title market in Ranao, and the best comments I read in social media is comparison of having a Royal title in Ranao to the miss universe, we all knew that Miss Colombia was crowned MU for a couple of minutes, the comments pointed that if you are politician then go to Marawi city and matter of minutes you will be crowning Datu or Sultan,

Just recently; connecting where the comment was posted Mr. Mar Rohas former Interior Secretary, the administration candidate in the May presidential election was enthroned as datu by the sultanate in Lanao del Sur province during his few hours visit in Marawi, the title hopes would help him secure the vital Mindanao votes, “Naniniwal na ako na binibinta nga ang Royal title” just to earn votes.

Some of Pilipinos citizens maybe for Datuship title but not royal Datu, Please don’t encourage non Muslim to the title as SULTAN, Sultan is one of the good names of our creator (Allah SWA). The word sultan describes the Muslim ruler of an Islamic Nation; his realm is known as sultanate.

The English language word sultan is derived from the Arabic term sultan, meaning "power" or "rule," which in turn comes from the Aramaic word shelet, meaning "to have power." 

MESSAGE FROM A ROYAL CLAN OF BUAYAN-MAGUINDANAO! FROM A CLOSE FRIEND, (he told me to hide his name)

This night, the uncle of Governor Sultan Mangudadatu of Buayan visited me in my office to personally delivered his opinion on what going in the sultanates of Ranao, in his sad and disappointed voice told me “Manager; Meranao and Maguindanao are one blood, as a member of the royal family of Buayan, we are worried to the people of Ranao, some of your leaders were not vigilantes in preserving our rich and beautiful heritage, remember our forefathers who were died, martyred and fought the invaders to protect our own (Land, Name, Culture and Religion) we need to preserve our maratabat because it is the only gift that are given to us by our forefathers.

Mr. Mar Roxas was enthrone as Datu by some of your leaders (Tribal leaders and Politicians) in exchanged of securing immediate position if Mar Roxas be elected as Philippine’s president in May, 2016, where is now the MARATABAT, Am I right that Meranao are always been labeled as protector of Bangsa? Have your tribesmen forgotten the MOA-AD? where thousands of our people have died because of him!

After he delivered his sentiments to me, I was hopeless I don’t know what to answer, he is right and I realized that since I created my website Ontay & Marogong.Net, I am consistently in making the article of preserving our Igma and Taritib, my blog was plenty of reminders to not encourage the non Muslim Filipino to any Title “GRAR” in Pata Pangampong a Ranao and I am always aware to the word Murka (Wrath) TIYOBA Anyone who would violate the Covenant of the Old Igma and Taritib would meet Heaven’s Wrath and suffer the consequence and I finally realized that Datu sa Ranao is more or less equivalent of Rajdamuda sa Ranao, Datu a Cabugatan sa Ranao and Sulotan sa Ranao, my last word to him (Mangudadatu) we will mark the names of those leaders who are using the our tradition and couture in term of money and position in government, we are shameful to this issue to our nearby sultanates, Johor, Brunei, Indonesia and Sulu-Sabah..

RANAO AND DANAO

by Kaka Edris Tamano
 

The starting points here are the RANAO (the lake) and the DANAO (the inundation), two bodies of water where these people proliferated. From the hinterland, there was an ancient lake called RANAO in the language (ranao is lake; ranaranao is a small lake or body of water; danao, a flooding water). The people or dweller in this ancient lake are IRANAON, meaning people of the lake. Pronounce it fluently, it becomes IRANON. These people were scattered all over Mindanao following the bigger eruption of the volcanoes in the area. Looking at their origin (Salsila; Tarsila or genealogy), the emanated from one parents.

Those people who inhabited the area on the banks of the Pulangi river were called MAGI-INGED sa DANAO, meaning dwellers by the flooded area or MAGINDANAO. The area rose to prominence following the establishment of the Sultanate there by Sharif Muhammad, better known in his kinayah as Sharif Kabungsuan who married a local lady TONINA (fro TO' ni ina = soul of mother; Tomanina among the Ranao people). On closer look, the reining sultanates are IRANON. Since IRANAON and IRANON are one and the same, the Iranon of Maguindanao, the Iranaon of Ranao, and the Maguindanaon are in essence ONE big tribe. After all, they are one in language and in customs, culture, and traditions. They were just divided by a well-intentioned entity to weaken and most probably to rule them.

Maguindanao eclipsed the other sultanates in influence following the courageous campaigns of Sultan Muhammad Qudratullah or Sultan Kudarat (an Iranon sultan) against the colonizers, the Spaniards. However, the other Iranaons had practiced a kind of hegemony in Mindanao by exacting tributes from minor datus called Katawhang Lumad (indigenous peoples) by the denizens or immigrants from the Visayas (Cebuanos and Boholanos particularly). It's a nice long story that needs to be written down if we have the luxury of time.

Article About Datu Utto Namli AKA Datu sa Zapakan

Another great hero of Mindanao was recorded in many books, recognized internationally his bravely, first appears in Spanish accounts in the year 1860, nearly to match the record of his great-grandfather Sultan Muhamad Dipatuan Kudarat who rule entire Mindanao on 16 century,

Datu Utto Anwaruddin a tyrant datu of Bakat and Zapakan, born to Bai Tuan Bai Bailabi of Maguindanao (daughter of Raja Twa of Maguindanao), his father was the 13th Rajabuayan sa Buayan-Rajabuayan Sultan Marajanun Bangon of Didagen (son of Bai Tulon Bai of Maguindanao/sister of Raja Twa son of Dolkarnain of Maguindanao), Datu Utto was the 14th Rajabuayan sa Buayan and at the same time Steward of Sultanate of Maguindanao when nobody is enthroned as Sultan, he first married to his first cousin Bai Labi sa Maguindanao-Bai Raja Putri (daughter of his father's sister Bai Bago Ataw/Bai labi sa Buayan; and her father was the 18th Sultan of Maguindanao-Sultan Kudarat Untong II) the two are both paternal first cousin-"pulna" or "wata-magari sa ina-ama" that is why they don't have children.

Bai Raja Putri was installed as Sultana of Maguindanao in which reign was shared to Datu Utto as Sultan sa Maguindanao and Buayan on CY 1890-1901.

His name, Sultan Anwarud-din Utto known in Spanish records and by his people as Datu Utto, a Magindanao prince who first appears in Spanish accounts in the year 1860. Datu Utto was feared by the Spanish government to be the "second Sultan Kudarat." In 1880, he had become the most powerful and fearsome datu of the Pulangi area, and temporarily held his rule in Bakat. He was able to overpower the sultanate of Tulayan, collect tribute from the Tiruray group, and frightened Jesuit missionaries in Tamontaka. To prevent the possibility of having a united Mindanao, the Spaniards planned to defeat Datu Utto so as to convince the other datus to never challenge the royal power again. The Spaniards were able to beat Sultan Idris of Talakuku in Tumbao area, who now pledge his allegiance to the King, and in return, was given Spanish protection against possible reprisals from Datu Utto. The fall of Tumbao did not stop Datu Utto from continuing his battle with the Spaniards, and as such, the Spanish troops decided to attack Buluan - the Datu's source of strength.

In a campaign led by Governor General Emilio Terrero in Cotabato from 1886 to 1887, he planned to seek the total submission of Datu Utto. Upon the attack in Buayan on January 19, 1886, Datu Utto was force to retreat. On February 4, Bakat was captured and near the said capital, the Reina Regente Fort was captured, which made Datu Utto to go deeper into the interior. The Spaniards persuaded a few datus to go against Datu Utto, and to pledge to the Royal Crown. On March 9, 1887, a message from Datu Utto was delivered to the Spanish camp by his uncle telling that he is now willing to submit. The following day, he and his wife, Rajah Putri, signed a peace treaty with the Spaniards.



TUGAYA ISA KO LIMA INGED A MALA
SA SUDUPAN A MASIU


Tugaya’s Sultanate is one of 4 supporting Sultanates of the royal house of Masiu, (Pondag, Pithakus, Malungun, and Lumasa). The area “Pikawali” of Pondag (brother of Amaloya thopaan in Masiu) are, Wato, Tugaya, Kalawi, Bacolod and Madalum, respectively (Lima inged ko sudupan o Masiu) belong to the 28 original councils system of Ranao “dowapolo ago walo a mbabaya ko taritib sa Ranao

Datu Amntak is the ancestor “pagapoon” of Tugaya. Traditionally the Sultan of Tugaya and his wazir (Adviser) Radiamoda of Tugaya come from the children of Datu Amntak from Ayo Bae sa Linuk Masiu. The children of Datu Amntak from Pandango Bae sa Sawer, could assume the tittles and thrones of Diamla and Cabugtan sa Tugaya exclusively, outside of that Sultan and Radiamoda. These arrangements is handed down though the “taritib” royal order of Tugaya well-remembered oral traditions.

Salsila mentioned that Amntak was a grandson of Sarip Alawi and Sandab. Amntak 1st married to Ayo sister of Lading Habibala bothe son of Radia Obankil to Gaonki of Taraka, Radia Obangkil was a son of Digowa sa Bacolod from Danambae sister of Balinding Bsar of Masiu, bore Maruhom Karim, Maruhom Jaman, Maruhom Saber and Limbo bae a labi sa Tugaya. Amntak married also Pandango, daughter of Anggolong sa Sawer in Masiu, son of Dianaton Naim of Butig, begot Maruhom Garang, Maruhom Amito, Maruhom Nao and Maruhom Paning. The Tugaya royal house has the PAT A DATU four Datus who are mbabaya sa taritib sa daluma Tugaya, “they who decide the rules” code or laws. They are Sultan, Cabugatan, Diamla and Radiamoda of the royal house of Tugaya.

Popularly known the 9 nine major clans of Tugaya – Maruhom Malimala, Maruhom Amai Banto, Maruhom Sarip, Maruhom Taop, Maruhom Radiamoda, Maruhom Sabir, Maruhom Naba, Maruhom Siddick, and Maruhom Jaman, they are the descendants of Datu Amntak a pagawidan ko taritib sa daluma Tugaya.
 

According to Salsila, Datu Amtak married two ladies: Princess Pandango of Sawir (Ba’e sa Sawir) and Princess Ayo of Link (Ba’e sa Link), May Allah grants them Paradise, and blessed with nine (9) sons who flourished, from generations to generations, into thousands of people known today as Tugayans (i-Tugayaan).

Years after years, the descendant of this Nine (9) Clans or Maruhom formed a Royal House and arranged with them the sequence of the title of “Sultan of Tugaya” and then signed a covenant, to fulfill this arrangement down to their descendant, or till today.

Here is the sequence of the 9 Maruhom (MARHOOM in Arabic which means blessed soul) who may hold the title “Sultan of Tugaya” (Life term) much like how today’s Malaysian Sultans take turns at being King of that country namely:

1. Maruhom Jaman;

2. Maruhom Sharief;

3. Maruhom Shabir;

4. Maruhom Siddeek;

5. Maruhom Malimala;

6. Maruhom Naba’;

7. Maruhom Rajah-moda

8. Maruhom Tauf

9. Maruhom Ama’i Banto

However, from among the above descendants they added the following to hold the positions corresponding to their clan (Also life term):

1. Apo-a-Babay-Datu-Imam (First Imam)

Including the First Bilal (Prayer caller)

2. Gurain-Imam-a-Samporna (Second Imam)

including the Second Bilal (Prayer caller)

3. Na’o-Jamla sa Tugaya & Cabugatan sa Tugaya.

The above designations are all existed till today and held by their nearest offspring.

Said to be one of the last bastions of Islamic civilization in Lanao del Sur, Tugaya also has special place in Philippine history. After all, it was there that the flag of resistance, the Pandi-a-Ranao, was planted by local hero Sheikh Saruang (Martyred), who fought against the Spanish invaders.

As part of his community service, he is an incumbent Vice President of TURCAT, Chairman of MARUHOM SARIP of Tugaya, Lanao del sur and other volunteer organizations of Tugaya.

Scanning the geneological accounts of Tugaya. To start with, let us begin by stating that Amtak, lokus a Datu, married first to Pandango, daughter of Golong of Sawir, son of Dianaton of Butig. They begot Amito, Naoh, Paning, and Garang. They were called as Moriatao Datu.

Amtak again married Ayo, the daughter of Gaon and Abankil of Masiu. She was the sister of Habibalah, the father of Aminollah and Maufaat. They begot children namely: Digowa or Maruhom Carim, Ganang or Maruhom Saber, Apa or Maruhom Diaman and Limbo married to Pualas.

Digowa or Maruhom Carim begot 7 Children and 5 daughters. These 7 sons together with their uncles (Maruhoms Saber and Diaman) comprised the so called Nine (9) Maruhoms of Tugaya, the inheritor of Sultanate of Tugaya.

Digowa or Maruhom Carim married first to Fatimah, daughter of Sultan a Wali from Butig dianaton and Paramata Asia. The marriage was blessed with children such as: 1. Diamarol, who became Sultan sa Tugaya in 1831 AD; 2. Tawako; 3. Datu; 4. Amae Atho; 5. Amai Bkar (descendant of Sultan Cotawato in 1962); 6. Amai Babay; 7. Alongan; 8. Inae Makibon; 9.

TARAKA A GAPA O BALINDONG

Submitted Article re-arranged by Datu Ontay

Taraka is the Capital of the Pangampong a Masiu. The Principal sit of power of the Sultan of Masiu is maintain by the royal houses Torogan of Maruhom Rahmatullah and Maruhom Dialaloden on the Banks of the Taraka River, These royal houses have the exclusive right to assume alternately, the title of thrones of Sultan of Masiu and Kabugatan of Masiu as had been vested upon their family lines by the great Ancestor SARIKRAN "BALINDONG", Datu Sarikala was enthrone as first and only Sultan Samporna of Taraka a Balindong bsar of Pangampong a Masiu a Diagaborolla sa Ranao, he was the original founder of Masiu Sultanate.

TARAKA got its name in perpetuation and in memory of a noble industrious strong man who lead the crusade of digging a big canal to let water upstream flow – traversing the area for the purpose of irrigating the vast land. The man had cleared and cultivated the land. He also provided water for his people to drink with and for their daily use.

Local history revealed that long before the advent of Islam in Mindanao, these areas were covered by big trees and other wild plants. It was also known with rich stories of fairy tales and myths.

During the introduction of Islam, in the province of Lanao del Sur, BAB-UL-RAHMAN (Gate of Mercy) Mosque was constructed in this municipality and became the first mosque erected in the provinces of Lanao and the second mosque built in the Philippines which gave and enlightened Islamic education and religion in the province.

Another peculiar quality of the Municipality of Taraka is that the Royal title known as Sultan sa Masiu can only be confirmed in this Municipality and if confirmed in other places other than in the Municipality of Taraka is deemed as baseless without royal recognition.

During the commonwealth period under the district administration of the Americans, the late Sultan sa Masiu Ambor Radianggaus was the first appointed Mayor of Taraka, succeeded by Ina Ama Diangca, Gagil Maruhom, Kunug Bano, Sultan sa Dilabayan Banocag Guilla and Sultan Sumpingan Macasalong.

The legal creation of the Municipality of Taraka as a separate, distinct and independent Local Government Unit is by virtue of Executive Order No. 21 date June 25, 1963.

 After its legal existence, the first elected Mayor of the Municipality of Taraka was the late Sultan Sumpingan Macasalong who was succeeded by Macapanton Ambor, Mariga Dirampatun, Lumna Mangata Mautante, Magdara Macapasir, Ambung Ambor, Sarip-Ali Mambuay Ambor and in the year 2004, a young and energetic attorney in the name of Atty. Amenodin U. Sumagayan broke the chain of political control and won the election to become the first Mayor-Attorney of Taraka and he graduated as a third termer mayor elected in National and Local Elections. And in the year 2013 local elections, his wife Prof. Nashiba Areefah Gandamra-Sumagayan is the newly elected mayor of the said municipality.

Historical Sites

BAAB UR-RAHMAN MASJID; Baab Ur-Rahman is the oldest Masjid in Lanao. It was built at Maruhom Jalalodin in Gapa-o Balindong, Taraka. This implies that the first Muslim converts were the residents of Taraka. The masjid is an important indicator of conversion, without which being Muslim would only be nominal as happens among maritime nomads like some of the Badjaos. It is only in Taraka where every agama has a masjid that signifies a Muslim community. The agama is the basic unit of community, inged is composed of several agamas, soko is composed of severalingeds, and pangampong is composed of severalsokos.

Originally, there were only two agamas in Taraka, each named after the founding ancestors, the sons of Nggur; Loksadato and Balindong. Loksadato, was older, whose real name was Radia Amaga, and Balindong was younger, whose real name was Radia Sarikran. The residents of the agama are descended from its founder. For example, Moriatao Loksadato is the agama of the descendants of the Loksadato (old dato). There are now fifty-seven agamas in Taraka, the most in Lanao. The founder of the agama exercised authority in the community. Although the same social structure exists in all the pengampongs, it is in Taraka where its elaboration, according to Islamic precepts exists: every agama has a Masjid. The correspondence between agama and Masjid indicates that Islam is most deeply rooted in Taraka.

THE DIBAROSAN; Taraka still has the Dibarosan. The Dibarosan is a stone head for purposes of meeting the death penalty on condemned criminals. An individual was judged and punished for transgressions of Islamic precepts on murder, adultery, and other grave offences. The punishment was public to instil in the minds of Maranao Muslims the moral of the act and its exigency. Capital punishment is told in commonplace stories and folktales, usually relating to infidelity. While it may be said that there could have beendibarosans in other settlements in Lanao, it is only in Taraka where a proof of death penalty and public punishment still exist. The Dibarosan, therefore, has become a symbol of discipline. The Dibarosan stands on a ground next to Taraka River, between Torogan and Maidana at Maruhom Jalalodin in Gapa-o Balindong, Taraka, Lanao Del Sur.

ABDAN / GUSI, Inside Samporna House in Salamatollah, Gapa-o Balindong, are three huge stone wares of Chinese manufactured called “gusi/abdans.” Since Taraka does not lie in the van of trade like Malabang, Ganassi, or Marawi, the accumulation of these jars attests to the affluence of Taraka as an important trade terminus in the basak area. It is said that there used to be four such gusis. One day, some young ladies played hide and seek, and one of them hid on one of the jars. As soon as she was inside, the gusi closed and rolled down to Taraka River, and this was the last that was heard about her.

Royal Sultanate of Ramain

(By Datu Ontay)

One of the oldest sultanates of Pangampong a Ranao is Ramain’s sultanate, the 8 wise men of Ranao including Datu Acari of Ramain updated the existed Igma and Taritib of Ranao on somewhere in 16 century, they created the 15 royal houses and the 28 legislative bodies to executes the updated Igma and Tarib of pat a Pangampong a Ranao, this ancient order or law bound together the four states or principalities of Lanao into an alliance or confederation and defined their relationships and Ramain became the primary highlighted sultanate as member during those days, the sultanate was established by our great ancestor DATU ACARI of his royal title “SIMBAAN SA RAMAIN”

The sultanate of Ramain is located in the municipality of Ditsaan-Ramain, Lanao del Sur, with its sister sultanate the “Ditsaan” also belong to the 15 royal panoroganan of pangampong a Ranao of mala a Bayabao principality. By virtue of republic act 2228 dated May 22, 1956; Ditsaan municipality was renamed Ditsaan-Ramain municipality in honor to the 2 equal royal sultanates of mala a Bayabao; In June 25, 1963 by virtue EO # 428 Ditsaan-Ramian became regular municipality of Lanao del Sur.

Accordingly; the throne as sultan of Ramain is exclusively to assume, only the descendants of the 4 sons of Sultan Diamla Alam grandson of both Maradia Otowa as Datu Sa Palao and Maruhom Palal, the two sons of Datu Acari to Potri Agay (mother of Datu sa Palao) and Paramata Nangko (mother of Maruhom Palal) one of the daughters of Balindongbsar of Masiu to Pindawadwa oray a noni bloodline, has the right to assume the royal throne as sultan sa Ramain alternately,

One of the late sultans of Ramain was the first Muslim senator of the Philippines in the good name of “Sultan Alauya Alonto” who served as senator of the Philippine for three terms, 1934-1935; 1941-1945 and 1946-1947. Ramain became one of the most prominent sultanates in pangampong a Ranao that reached its record till the Sultanate of Brunei Darussalam, Johor and nearby areas because of “Senator Alauya Alonto” who served as sultan and for his charitable services to his constituents, almost the same with the sultanate of Masiu because of Sultan Ali Dimaporo who served as Governor then congressman of Lanao del sur and same time as sultan, also the Sultanate of Bayang because of late congressman Sultan Haroun Al Rashid Lucman.

I remembered the notable comment from my website www.acmaly88page.tl ontay & marogong.net and I quoted (igira aya datu ko inged na malai sowa ago matao tanding na pukaawidaniyan so ngaran o ingudian ko kapiya niyan ago so pagtaoron ko mga bantuganiyan) if the leader of the sultanate is a good man, knowledgeable, respected his good deeds will reflected to his sultanate…

Salsila mentions that Datu Acari who was known as SIMBAAN SA RAMAIN firstly married to Potri Agay sister of Alao, Puso and Ulok, begot Omon of Ganassi, Amnag wife of Adamba of Pugaan, Dangi of Marawi and Maradia Otowa who was also known as Datu sa Palao.

Datu Acari married also Paramata Nangko daughter of Sultan Diagaborola Sarikran Balindong of Masiu to Pindawa-dwa Oray one of the 5 royal Noni of Ranao-Ragat, begot only Maruhom Palal who was married to Potri Maginalong a bae sa Tanggasana the sister of Maruhom Kahar of Raya-Wato Balindong LDS, begot

This gogodan showed and expressed how it’s fair the throne to the descendants of Datu Acari, then Akhiro Zaman married to Danding a Bae a Labi sa Balabagan daughter of paramata Adawi and Dungklang son Datu Ambun also one of the 5 Noni of Ranao-Ragat; Paramata Adawi was a daughter of Dianaton Naim of Butig from Asiya also a Noni, begot Sultan Diamla Alam of Ramain.

SULTANATE OF TAPOROG, POONA BAYABAO LANAO DEL SUR

Taporog was one of the 16 royal sultanates “Panoroganan” of RANAO and one of the oldest royal settlements of Pangampong a Ranao, it was established after Butig principality. It had a land area of just under eight square kilometers, on the Northwest it was bounded by a river known as Lumbac River, on the northeast it was bounded by the sultanate of Bansayan and the sultanate of Bubong, on the Southeast it was bounded by the sultanate of Bualan and a small river know as Anak's River and on the southwest it bounded by Lake Lanao.

The Sultanate of Taporog was ruled by a SULTAN, Bae a Labi, Cabugatan and other royal titles. The territorial of the sultanate was settled by the descendant of 1) Maupaat Parti, 2) Maupaat Sebo of Binidayan, 3) Maupaat Gayob and the descendant of their two half brothers,

As per the royal record of Taporog, SULTAN ADAPUN was the first known sultan of the Royal house of Taporog, followed by Sultan Lucman, Sultan Angali, Sultan Mudag, Sultan Botawan and Sultan Alibsar. Due to the poor health of Sultan Alibsar he decided to step down on his throne and relinquished the throne to Sultan Farouk Mangondaya Aliin Gandarosa Sharif as new sultan, dated 31st of May 2003, enthronement was done in the morning at Punud, Taporog Poona Bayabao LDS.

On early part of 2004, Mayor Sultan Amron Tampugao Maruhom of Marogong was enthroned also as sultan of Taporog to claim the long time bypass to the succession right of the descendants of Maupaat Sebo’s to the throne. The sultanate of Taporog has three sultans, but as I said this was in fact a healthy situation, since many are willing to serve the sultanate, as long as everyone works for a common good, what is bad is when people just sit on their title and sleep on it and don’t care his responsibilities as Sultan.

Municipality of Poona Bayabao (Adopted article)

Poona Bayabao is a 5th class municipality in the province of Lanao del Sur. Located at the heart of Lanao del Sur Province. It is about 37 kilometer away from the capital city of Marawi. To emphasize Poona Bayabao is derived from two Maranao words "Poona" means the beginning and "Bayabao" denotes ethical standards. Thus we can say Poona Bayabao implies the place where the ethnical standard of Maranao people begun. This is therefore compromise the 3 Royal Sultanate House of Lanao del Sur the Sultanate House of Rogan, Taporog and Bansayan. Poona Bayabao is politically subdivided into 25 barangays.

The people of Poona Bayabao is famous of creating and baking giant food. The Giant Tiatag, is one of the maranao delicacies which only few maranao can made. Another maranao food "Dodol", is a maranao home made chocolate. Another is "Paburut", the delicious maranao icing ball. Lastly,"Burua" the maranao cup cake. The climate is classified as Type IV which is characterized by more or less even distribution of rainfall throughout the year.

KASIPA SA MANGGIS

Kasipa sa Manggis- is a royal game adopted during the darangen era, when Prince Bantugan and Prince Madali visited the enchanted kingdom of Parapatana a dulum to court the beautiful princesses in this place, when they arrived (Bantogun & Madali) on the playground of the place, the two princess were invited to plays the Kasipa sa Manggis so they only be allowed to enter the lofty tower of the princesses if they hit the big “KAMBOKA” box.

Kamoboka is a small or big box like structure wrapped beautifully with colorful tapestries with indicated prizes, including the gate entrance to the lofty tower of the princesses, etc.  In a modern time, kamboka has prizes of car, cash, cow or Carabaos.

Players of Kasipa sa Manggis is a group of Mranao men without ally in good royal costume, players will compete in the traditional game until they hit the last KAMBOKA. The game requires good players from a royal descent to hit the targets which are small and colorful boxes called “kaboka” by kicking a rattan ball (sipa). Long bamboos are used as poles and ropes are tied to the poles and strung to the ropes are kaboka. Each kaboka is a small box-like structure wrapped beautifully with colorful tapestries with indicated prizes. If the rattan ball reaches the kaboka and falls, the sipa player gets a prize……..By Datu Ontay

THE SULTAN !

Please don’t encourage non Muslim to the title as SULTAN, Sultan is one of the good names of our creator (Allah SWA). The word sultan describes the Muslim ruler of an Islamic Nation; his realm is known as sultanate.

The English language word sultan is derived from the Arabic term sultan, meaning "power" or "rule," which in turn comes from the Aramaic word shelet, meaning "to have power."

An interesting feature of the word sultan is that it implies absolute political authority, but not religious authority. Whereas many other Asian and European rulers were heads of both the faith and of the state, a sultan owed religious allegiance to the caliph,

The Sultan and other royal titles are among those embodied in the Mranao long-cherished “Taritib and Igma” (or Customs and Traditions, or simply, Rules and Regulations in layman’s view) of the Pat a Pungampong ko Ranao (Four Genealogical Divisions of Ranao) which would govern the ways of life and ideology of the Mranaos and their incoming generations..

Murka (Wrath) TIYOBA

Anyone who would violate the Covenant of the Old Igma and Taritib would meet Heaven’s Wrath and suffer the consequence?

waggish the traditional belief in the that the solemn covenant of our forebears will inflict upon those who violate the Taritib and Igma that would govern then the Great and Brave Mranao People and thenceforth.

The covenant for the information of those who do not know it yet was solemnly done in the presence of the most Noble and Holy Qur’an of the time, witnessed with the breaking of fresh eggs, the cutting of naturally crafted perfectly rattan, the extinguishing of Lamp and other sombre rituals, and any one from generation to generation to come who violates shall receive the wrath of the Almighty. Our forebears asked the help of Allah to sanctify and make it thriving forever from generation to generation. 

we mus be vigilant, we will just wake up one day and see that Ranao is no longer the homeland of the brave and civilized Mranaos, no longer the last frontier if Islam in the country. One day we will wake up in the land dominated by new occupants with an alien way of life, and new hypocrites professing a corrupt Islamic ideology with a warped cultural identity. What a painful thing it is to see that our children will come to a point that they will be asking their parents: Are we American? Are we Pakistan? Are we Arabian? or Korean? What a doom! Indeed, Allah (swt) forbids!
