Shaik a labi of Maguindanao is the Shaik a Labi o Masiu, his descendants spread in some parts of Ranao, particular in Wato, Masiu, Gannasi, Taraka and Tugaya.

Shaik a Labi is a Grar, a royal title given to a certain person in honor for his dignity, power and wealth. The Grar Shaik a Labi is composed of Arabic and Iranun words, which means wealthy commander or commander of all commanders referring Ranao and Maguindanao.

He is connected in the sultanates of Maguindanao, Masiu, Gannasi, Tugaya, Wato and Taraka, all Shaik a labi in those mentioned areas is one.

His real name is Gogo, other tarlsila called him Gogoa, Tarsila mentioned that Sultan Alamansa Zolkarnain of Maguindanao visited Ranao and was honor to marry Mala a Bae, then they divorced and faithfully remarried to Maruhom Adel of Gannasi, begot Asirong also called Sirongan because he has two fathers or Untonga because he was lucky for having wealthy parents or Tuntona (miatuntonian so loks iyan a pior), he visited Maguindanao and they honor him as Dipatuan

this Asirong married to Patri of Masiu and begot Bae a Mala and Sharif Maupaat Amerol Umra sa Maguindanao (Amerolian clan)

While Bae a Mala sister of Sharif Maupaat married to Maulana Muhammad, his Grar is Datu Olama sa Masiu, he was the son of Maruhom Aliola of Taraka to Rambayong a Bae sa Taraka, daughter of Maruhom Palal of Ramain and Potri Maginalong a Bae sa Tanggasana a daughter of Maruhom Qahar of Raya-Wato Balindong.

Bae a Mala and Datu Olama begot Aminun and Gogo known in his royal title SHAIK A LABI, his Grar is in Masiu at the same time in Maguindanao, majority expected it SHAIK A LABI SA WATO or in GANNASI, all valid and possible.

Shaik a Labi married to Raga, daughter of Okom bzar sa Macadar to Paramata Amanding daughter of Sharif Arorao sa Taraka (moritao Arorao), begot 8 children including Mindang bae a Romapunut sa Maguindanao go Masiu,

Mindang married to Sangkad Sultan Maamor of Raya and begot Datu Dangcal Maruhom Salam, the couple was divorced and no one is able to marry Mindang due to the promised “Samaya” of Sultan Sangkad to kill anyone attempting to marry her.

Sultan Daromoyod of Wato, son of Datu sa Masiu to Potre Bae a Labi sa Baloi, attempted to marry Mindang, Sultan Sangkad refused it, Sultan Daromoyod said I will marry her wether you like it or not, her Bangsa a royal line is need to be prospers in Wato, don’t be selfish KAILANG SO BANGSA E MINDANAG ODI AKUN MAPANGAROMA, Daromoyod said.

Mindang remarried to Sultan Daromoyod of Wato and begot many children, now spread in Wato Balindong LDS, this post is to reminded the descendants of Shaik a Labi of Wato. I realized when my mom told me to research about my line of Shaik a Labi and Alhamdulillah I found it from 3 source of Tarsilas, my parents both connected to this thick blue-blood line from Wato, Maguindanao, Gannasi, Taraka and Masiu.

Trivia (Borok)
Mranao a ikhakamotan

Borok is a Mranao traditional perfume, made from the roots of a special plant, found in the forest and some are cultivated as a source of this fragrance pleasant smell.

Borok is long lasting perfume, there are two kinds of this good smelling perfume, #BorokaDatu" for male and #Borokabae" for female, its smell last atleast one week or more. Borok usually used by a royal prince "Datu" and royal Princess "Bae" in Ranao areas those old old days.

As of this present time, borok is no longer available, due to frequents modernizations of many things including cosmitics and perfumes.

Below is my mranao poem about the bad Borok, part of my ILAT ILAT TO A PLASTIC FRIEND.

Artawan Gonawan, he is Rajah Indar Putra, popularly known Radia Indarapatra, he was the son of Sultan Nabi Bacaraman of Mantapoli from the Omayyad Dynasty of bano Abdel Sam, a branch of Quraish. Local historian narrated that he, Sultan Nabi Bacaraman / Bahraman among the rulers of India of Ottoman Sultanate, Mantapoli is somewhere in India not in Malay Peninsula, our local Panditas believed that Mantapoli is now Malaysia,

Bae sa Piyagma was the mother of Radia Indarapatra, she was the princess of Pigma a Ragat (lake) a native of Ranao who migrated to Mantapoli during the crisis that Ranao under monsters attacks, MAKAOGIS, OBANDER, OLAD TANGILA, OMAKAAN and GARODA, that produces fear or physical harm by their appearances or actions.

Local historian narrated that Sultan nabi Bacaraman learned that Bae sa Piagma was there in his kingdom and he intent to marry her in exchanged to save her people. Sultan Nabi Bacaraman and Bae sa Piagma bore Radia Indarapatra, the Sultan had other lady whom he had son Radia Solaiman,

Most Mranao are familiar about oral story, the returned of Rajah Indarapatra in Piagma a Ragat (Lake) to regain the kingdom of his mother from the hands of Demons and Monsters, the evidences of this story found in some areas in Ranao, ROCK IN KALOOCAN MARAWI split by Rajah Indarapatra, BALT ISLANDS, BATO SA UATO, MOUNT GURAYN and the cave in MIMBALAY in Masiu where he found his lady Potri Rayna Laot.

The royal title Rajah was first introduced in Mindanao thru Indarapatra, a title of princes and chieftains in India and areas of Southeast Asia once subject to Indian influenced. Followed by the royal title Datu of the datuship system during the era of Bumbaran empire, adopted from the “Datuk” of Malay Peninsula. Followed by royal title Sultan the last introduced to Mindanao thru the Ashraf of Arabia particular on the arrival of 7 Sharif in mainland Mindanao somewhere in 15th to 16th CE.

Mranao connection to Pata Datu is very essential, this is the core of our genealogy and basis of having the right to rule and govern in Iranaon areas, and unlike of other sultanates they only concentrated on the foreign connection rather than their native blood. –Datu Ontay-

My Tita Tayan is princess.

(This article is to describe shinning princess from dimness princesses in our society, response to the request of my good friends in Malaysia and Indonesia)

There are plenty of princesses in our society, majorities are dimness princesses, hundreds of them are shinning, and very few are popular due to social status in life.

How to classify princesses in Ranao?

All daughters of sultans, chieftains and traditional leaders in our society are princesses, from a noble line, respected and known in terms of wealth, power and knowledge with political connections.

The princess in the photo, middle of BIA boys is among the most popular and respected bae in our family, particular in Binidayan, Marogong, Tubaran, SND, Picong, Malabang and Bayabao also

She is Asarabae, Ashar for short, known Hadja Omaimah after she performed hadj pillar of Islam years ago, from Macabato family her maternal side, Dimaporo family paternal side and Balindong is her family name since she was formerly married to the mayor of Picong lanao Del sur. ASAR “OMAIMAH” MACABATO DIMAPORO BALINDONG her complete name.

I called her Tita Tayan, she was the great fan of Khumenei a Moro singer. Eldest daughter of late Sultan Naga B. Dimaporo, Sultan a Gaus ko Ranao-Ragat, the most feared datu and politician during his time of his first wife. The municipality of SND named after him in honor of his being a good leader.

This princess has 58 siblings, next to her eldest brother Hon. Motalib M. Dimaporo, graduated mayor of SND and incumbent v-mayor, some of her sisters are former mayors, mayor’s wife and professionals. With v-mayors nephews, mayors’ cousins, congressmen cousins, board members cousins, the Governor of lanao Del Norte is her best of friend and sister in-law.

She married to Hon. Alinader "Daghar" Balindong, the incumbent mayor of Picong Lanao der sur, whom she has number of children, one of them was the former mayor of Picong Datu Amen Dimaporo Balindong, the incumbent vice mayor of Picong is his younger son. One of her daughters is wife of hon. Assemblyman Zia Alonto Adiong of the first district of Lanao Del sur, young and energetic politician, son of Bae Soraya Alonto Adiong the incumbent governor of Lanao de sur and brother of the incumbent Vice Governor of Lanao del sur Bombit A. Adiong and congressman Adiong of the first district of LDS.

The wedding culmination of her daughter that is married to Omar Family, it was attended by many prominent politicians, including the vice president of the Philippine those time (Binay) and numbers of senators, to mentions some, Senator Migs Zubiri. These political connections are not to raise her chair, for me to classify brighter princess from dimness princesses in our society.

She is the incoming Bae a labi a Gaus ko Ranao-Ragat, (Insha Allah) her late father was the first sultan a Gaus ko Ranao Ragat, her brother is the next sultan a Gaus of Ranao-Ragat, Gaus meaning power and wealth.

The princess loves travel and tour, she reached Singapore, Hongkong, Indonesia, Vietnam, Cambodia, Dubai and KSA, the use of traveling is to regulate imagination with reality, and instead of thinking of how things may be. For me travel is passion not profession but great profile.

Datu ontay connection to princess Asar:

Her late father SND is first cousin of my grandfather, the late Sultan of Marogong Panondiongan Abdulmadid Maruhom, (ama Pangcoga brother of ina Borngao). My grandmother Patalan Dimaporo is first cousin of her Father SND (ama Dangcogan Sultan sa Wato brother of Ama Dimaporo sultan of Binidayan). Her Son Datu Amen married to Bael first cousin of my mother in Repor and Guiling clan in Masiu. The wife of his brother Hon. Motalib in the good name of aunt Emelda “Mimie” Lanto Macagaan Dimaporo is the first cousin of my mother (ama Musa brother of Ama Gamon Macagaan) many connections to mention. Tita Tayan Lady Pidy in FB is one of my favorite aunts; she is down to earth and makilolotn and friendly too. -Datu Ontay-

Mohammed Salic is Mranao pride
First Filipino Vilecdictorian in


Mohammed Salic Ameril is Maranao, born in Saudi Arabia but raised in Marawi City, Philippines, he was granted for schollarship to King Saud University in Riyadh, he made it to the top in Arabic linguistic institute, the University has many brilliant students from different countries, it never happined in the university's history where a filipino student nailed the top spot.  


 My blue blood from Angnie of Madalum to his grandson Sultan Danggao of Riray, connecting to Datumulok of Tugaya,


Riray is remote area, located at the highland with a low temperature, upper of barangay Gadongan in Madalum Lanao Del Sur, near to the peak of mount Gorayn to the boundary of Munai in Lanao Del Norte,

This area is of one of the regular barangays of Madalum LDS. Accordingly; it became minor sultanate during the time of Datu Danggao of Madalum who bed his own agama sultanate,

Datu Danggao was the founding Sultan of Riray, followed by his son and grandson Kabago and the descendants of Kabago are the reigning Datus and Baes of this area,

Am I connected to the Sultan of Riray?

Due to my strong interests in researching the genealogy of Ranao, I received 2 versions of “Gogod” a portion of Salsila, stating the moriatao Angnie of Madalum particular about Datu Guinal of Gadongan, and then I quoted the moriatao Sultan Danggao. I was surprised; the people of Riray are close relatives of my family in Binidayan LDS.

I open my Kirim to double check the gogod and here come into my mind that my longtime research about my Bangsa in Tugaya is connected to Madalum. Here my version, please read maybe we are relative too.


I start from Sandab of Johore, first married to Labiolan of Dolangan, aunt of Datu Pundoma of Butig, bore Princess Lapuan, married to his first cousin Datu Okho of Butig who was a son of Pundoma to Umpas the sister of Sandab, begot Dima-Alip of Maguindanao and Sittie Adir of Masiu. Their half-brother was Dianaton Naim of Butig. -->> READ MORE


Ampaso, he was the son of Baodi a woman chieftain of Binidayan daughter of Daisalong of Masiu and Ameladen Macapundag, a chieftain and propagator of West Unayan Pangampong. His father was Maupaat Barao, brother of Sultan Iskandar Dolkarnain of Sulu - Maguindanao were sons of Pazaolan unrecognized sultan of Sulu who contested the father in-law of Sultan Kudarat, Andasaolan in the book of Dr. Majul.

Ampaso was a great Ulama, he is known Auliya due to his devotion to Islamic faith, and his parents married him first to Laboyoan of Wato daughter of Datumaas and Daki the sister of Balindong Bsar of Masiu,

Ampaso married also to Amot of Madalum, daughter of of Datu Alomai to princess Angni sister of Balindong Bsar of Masiu,

Ampaso went to Uyaan their guest to the Islamic event in the area then he was honor to marry princess Mainad the only daughter of Pipis a Datu and bae Motiya of Kapatagan, Pipis a Datu is a son of Arun sa Poktan son of Dianton Naim of Butig and that Motiya was a daughter of Salaginto of Butig to Labiya of Monai and Mala a Bayabao sister of Angoyao.

Ampaso is the younger brother of Pondag of Binidayan and elder brother of Sayawa of Binidayan, during his married life he stayed much of his time in Gadongan Madalum and Uyaan to manage his Madrasa and small mosque, at this time Ampaso clan has many Ulamas and Alems and Alemas. maybe due the blood connection to Apo Ampaso, most of the ruling political clans in Lanao del Norte and second district of Lanao del Sur are connected to Ampaso clan by blood relation, -Datu Ontay-


(Igma and Taritib do not allow you to marry your Mahram, the basis is Qur-an and Hadith)

A woman’s mahram is a person whom she is never permitted to marry because of their close blood relationship (such as her father, grandfather, great-grandfather, etc., and her son, grandson, great-grandson, etc., her paternal and maternal uncles, her brother, brother’s son and sister’s son), or because because of radaa’ah or breastfeeding (such as the brother and husband of the woman who breastfed her), or because they are related by marriage (such as the mother’s husband, the husband’s father, grandfather, etc., and the husband’s son, grandson, etc.).

Male mahram: wife, mother, paternal grandmother, maternal grandmother, paternal great-grandmothers, maternal great-grandmother, paternal aunt, maternal aunt, half or full sister, sister’s daughter, brother’s daughter, sister’s granddaughter, brother’s granddaughter, mother in-law, wife’s mother, wife’s grandmother, daughter, granddaughter, great granddaughter, wife’s daughter, wife’s granddaughter, wife’s great granddaughter, adopted daughter, wife of your father, wife of your son, wife of your grandfather, wife of your grandson, wife of your great grandson, wife of your great grandfather. These mentions connections is not permissible for a man to marry, all of this are close blood connection and they are the immediate members of your Family.  For more details read Soorat al-Noor,” [al-Noor 24:31].

the woman’s male mahrams by ties of blood, as stated clearly in this aayah or inferred by it are as follows:

1- the woman’s forefathers, no matter how far back the line of ascent goes through her father and her mother, such as her father’s forefathers and her mother’s forefathers. As for her husband’s forefathers, they are her mahrams by marriage, as we shall see below.

2- her sons, which includes her children’s children, no matter how the line of descent goes and whether they are descended from males or females, such as her sons’ sons and her daughters’ sons. As for her “husband’s sons” mentioned in the aayah, these are the husband’s sons from other wives, and these are her mahrams by marriage, not by blood, as we shall see below.

3- her brothers, whether they are her brothers through both the mother and father, or through the father only or the mother only.

4- the children of her siblings, whether they are descended through the males or females, such as the sons of her sister’s daughters.

5- paternal uncles and maternal uncles. They are mahrams by blood even though they are not mentioned in the aayah, because they are like parents and are regarded by people as having the same status as parents, and a paternal uncle may be called a father. -Datu Ontay-



Some people of Ranao have blood connections either to Sultan Barahaman of Maguindanao or to Sultan Kaharuden Kuda of Maguindanao, both sons of Sultan Dundang son of Sultan Kudarat,

in this chart is the core line of Kudarat to Sultan Kuda, his name written in Ranao Salsila “Ukodai” to the present generations of Ranao, as per the short story of our Panditas in Masiu, Sultan Ukodai sometime visited Ranao particular about Bansayan and Masiu to secure ties between the datus there so that he had a feud with the sultan of Sulu (Sahabuden) who was supported by his nephews Barahaman sons,

Sultan Ukodai let his grandson married to a royal bae in Ranao, from that time he became close to the people of Bansayan and Masiu, but sadly he was slain by the soldier of Sulu Sultan,


He was a younger brother of Barahaman and was sometimes known as Jamal ul-‘Azam. He also assumed the title of Amir ul-‘Umara as well as that of Maulana. His reign was contested by two of his nephews, the sons of Barahaman. To make more secure his authority, he asked the aid of the Sulu Sultan Shahab ud-Din who came over to Simuay where Kuda held court. A misunderstanding as well as bitterness due to a long standing feud brought about a pitched battle between the Sulus and Maguindanaos. In the struggle, the Sulu Sultan personally slew Kuda. This event took place on August 10, 1702.

There were people in the Philippines who are not familiar with Samira Gutoc. My College of Law Batchmate, her father-career Ambassador, my former Boss at DFA Manila, My extended family. A repost from Atty. Maisara Dandamun-Latiph:

I have known Samira since College (more than two decades). I also know her parents: the soft spoken, humble and kind the late former Ambassador Candidato Gutoc ( I miss Uncle already) and her business tiger mom Dra. Tomanina Ali Gutoc. They raised Sam to be a humble, caring and excellent human being whom loves learning and helping.

She is the eldest of their family who are all professionals, lawyer, doctor, businesswoman and banker. She could have easily been a lawyer but opted to be a journalist where her heart lies. They were raised in a family where excellence and service to the people were the core values.

I remember Sam telling me that her mother is a strict disciplinarian who taught her to study hard (she graduated Valedictorian) and her father a diplomat who was self-made man who has earned so much respect amongst the Muslim community for his services. Despite their relatively high status in life Sam attended to the needs of our Muslim community in Quiapo, Culiat, Taguig and lately Marawi where she settled 15 years ago to fully serve and help build a better society for us and all in her capacity as volunteer.

Sam, as we fondly call her grew up abroad. Her English was impeccable, and her leadership was unsurpassable. Since our youth she never gets tired of advocating for our rights as minority, several organizations and publications (Arellano Law Gazette, Suara Kabataan) owe their existence and creation because of her. Wherever she goes and whatever she does, she gave everything leaving nothing for her own. She is perhaps one of the most selfless human being I have ever known.

For her outstanding public service, she was awarded a TOYM which is a rarity for us. She was awarded a Chevening Fellowship Award in Oxford for her Journalism by the British Embassy. ARMM Sectoral Assemblywoman for her work on women. She worked untiringly as full time volunteer in Marawi for Kazalimbago Movement a multi-sectoral organisation dedicated to improving the peace and order in Lanao. For her work, she was nominated and appointed lately to the Bangsamoro Transition Commission (BTC) for her peace advocacies. I can go on about all her achievements but this space is not enough.

If there is anything that stands out the most its her ability to make leaders of us all. Almost all our young leaders who are now excelling in their fields where somehow influenced or inspired by Sam. For me, this is the hallmark of leadership, when you inspire others to be a leader themselves.

It really pains me when Sam gets hurt by unfounded words, yes we may have had our differences but we remain the best of friends’ nay sisters even. So, please for those who do not know Sam, I hope you spend some time with her by then you will truly know how it feels like to have your spirit uplifted by a person, and hopefully one day you too may be inspired to become a person who works hard for the betterment of others.

A person who has extra-ordinary mind, good heart, religiously devoted and has unique principles in life, he is known for his intelligence yet down to Earth. This is how I describe my arikulay whom I always believe since the very beginning that he has actually the potential to become the Institute Class Valedictorian. He is indeed an epitome of person having an extra-ordinary intellectual mind.

He is a native of Pantao Ragat, Lanao del Norte but grew up in Iligan City wherein he spent his Elementary education. He was born on July 11, 1996 at Iligan City. Mubarak was still in tender age when his mother died, but he has been throughout the way of getting so far despite lacking of supervision from a mother. He was raised with kindness, diligent and faithful by his father and grew up with his siblings. CLICK-->>READMORE




Arman Ali Ghodsinia will graduate with a degree of Bachelor of Science in Molecular Biology and Biotechnology summa cum laude. His weighted average is 1.176. The university announced that Ghodsinia was chosen to deliver the speech on behalf of the graduating class. 25th June 2017

Born and raised in Manila, Ghodsinia admits that he has very little recollection of the one time he went to Marawi when he was still a child.

It was his mother who was originally from Marawi, but she later came to Manila and met her future husband, an Iranian national who later became a naturalized Filipino.

“I really want to go back there,” Ghodsinia said when asked if he wants to visit his relatives after the conflict is over. “Half of who I am came from Marawi.”

“He was clear of course that he was proud of being a Maranao, “UP Diliman is very proud of him – an iskolar ng ummah (the Muslim community), an iskolar ng bayan,” he added.

Even before receiving top awards at the UP graduation, Ghodsinia has already reaped numerous recognitions for his research on genetic mutations tied with cancer.

To all the Guests and followers of this humble website, Ontay & Marogong.Net

Please be aware to one of the new created sultanate league here in Ranao, my source informed me that they are manipulating the existing AMANAT Igma and Taritib of pangampong a ranao by making wrong Mbabaya sa Taritib, wrong Panoroganan and they created many sultanates which are no basis from the Salsila of Ranao for them to secure immediate positions in the Duterte administration,

Guys, before the creation of that league and before they became synthetic sultans, our website Ontay & Marogong.Net already created more than ten years to enlightening the new generation of Mranao about the Amanat “IGMA AND TARITIB” we double our efforts to posts the correct information’s about Amanat, Salsila and history for us to maintain the significance of story, culture and the accurate Taritib of our sultanates.

Their name is 100% wrong; they used the word LANAO which is no basis of the Salsila even in the History of our sultanates, we Mranao and Iranaon our name are derived from the word RANAO, and Ranao is our official Identity, it is very clear that they are hoax in a sense that they are blind to the correct history of our society,

Lanao is a misnomer and inaccurate use of term, Maguindanao people always pronounced letter R of L, which is the reason Ranao became Lanao and Iranon became Ilanon,

I will share with you short story early in Facebook 2008. The son of late mayor of Siasi in Sulu sent me an e-mailed and private messages requesting to delete my website and call our sultanate copy-cat of no basis and “PIPIS” uncooked, he said our area called LANAO because his ancestors “gg-father” call Lanao the area where his slaves came from, utosan sila para magdala ng LANA “gas” and there was depository of Lana in his sultanate and he call it LANAON,

The Kastilas of Zamboanga called us Lanao as what they heard from the people of west Mindanao where they bought the slaves call LANAO, so that our late sultans selling slaves they captured from the battles, now look at the manga PIPIYA a tao sa Ranao, they are happy and comfortable calling their league with Lanao, kasi government ang sinunod nila which it very clear that our government still against Muslim and we are still victim of historical injustice,

My points is this blind sultan, kindly study the Igma and Taritib, you are treats to the Amanat of our forefathers, Raya is representative of Pondag of west Masiu, how dear you to remove it from the panatirib sa Ranao, what is your authority in changing the amanat?, makamorka ruka so bangsami sa Raya ago sa Wato, -Datu Ontay-

Take note: before the introduction of Sultanate in our area, our place called Kianranda a Ragat, followed by Tiongkop a Layagun, Followed by Orang Timor, followed by Polo Diawa, followed by  Iranon Piparasan a Ranao Pipandaraan, Followed by Tlo a minibit sa bawangun a ikapat so Baloi, due to the demand of Datu Timbul Ali of Baloi, our forefathers and sultans agreed to call our area Pat a pangampong a Ranao a Sakub o Batalo Pagilidan go giya Maguindanao, then our traditional singer “ONOR” in a bayok called us pat a pagadilan ko Ranao,  now tell me where is the word LANAO? -Datu Ontay-


Adun a marata ruka a aya ruka mapia, ana mapia ruka aya ruka marata, oriyan o marugun naso malubod, o aya iputagompia a Ranao na so martial law na Alhamdulillah, opuman o batanodun kabinsai na giyoto na tupung o Allah ko malaon e paratiyaya ago tiyoba o Allah ko manga baradosa agoso di pamaginontolan

Please respect and support the ongoing martial law in Mindanao.

Na tharo angka rakun sa maliwanag
A dadun a kababaya aka rakun
Ka inikagowad akongka dun
Ka ana pukababayaan ka a salakao 

O pangninka rakun a pitas ta
Na apiya pun mibobolog
So mala a babaya akun ruka
Na tigurun akun sa apia masakit
Na pasionot ako ko manga kabaya aka 

Ipusamaya akun ruka habibikolay
A di akun suka pusasambiin sa pud
Sa apiyako maribon ko mawatan a ingud
Na sukadun e tago ago onga a puso akun
Sukabo e lalayon sa pikir ago sa ginawa 

Opuman o bakaniyan m’bulaga
Ka inikagowad kaniyan mambo
Ka dadun a ranon iyan ruka a maito
Na o kabaya aka makambalinga nata
Na tharo angka rakun  sa ng-gagaan
Sa makakasoyata sa dayon sa dayon

Condolence to the people of Ranao for the sad demise of Mayor Sultan Topaan Ditual Disomimba , He returned to his creator this March 04, 2017, He is the reigning Sultan of Masiu and Chairman of the 16 Royal Sultans of Pangampong a Ranao, may Allah enter him to the highest level of Janatul Ferdaus without delayed .

A person that departs from this earth never truly leaves, for they are still alive in our hearts and minds for the leagcy he passed to us, they live on. Our heartfelt condolence to his Family from this Website - Datu Ontay-

Sultan sa Masiu Topaan “Tony” Disomimba re-established political connections between the Royal Houses and Manila. As a young man, he already saw the progress of his father “late vice Governor and Datu a Cabugatan of Masisu” and his Uncle late governor and Sultan of Masiu were making during that time. So when he became the Sultan of Masiu he continued that. And he also explored new possibilities by which the traditional leadership can work with the government. That is why he got so close to Arroyo, even before Arroyo, all the Presidents, with Ramos, with Cory Aquino, And now with President Duterte for the creation of Mindanao Sultanate. There were always meetings. He was always bringing his title of sultan, and his being mayor second. So when there are gatherings he will be more recognized as sultan rather than the mayor of Tamparan.

Sultan Disomimba is one of the exponents of the new movement. He was born in Tamparan Lanao Del Sur and was named after a great, great ancestor of Masiu “Amaloya Topaan” (patriarch of Pangampong a Masiu) who had married Potri Kaizadan, who herself was the granddaughter of Sharif Ka­bung­suwan by his third wife, Bae Ma­zawang.

My own little data about the Iranun in Sabah, Malaysia based on my research and actual experiences during my visits in Egypt, date October 7, 2016. and this is my story;

Before I start my story, I wants to highlight first the article published in Internet stated that the origin of Iranun in Malaysia still remain mystery, “The Iranun, an ethnolinguistic group in the Malaysian state of Sabah (formerly British North Borneo), are a people whose origins and pre-colonial history remain a mystery” their culture is much admired and has been copied widely, their language is under threat, and with it their identity.

Let me begin this way, and I am hoping that we understand the point despites of the recent claim for Sabah. My intent for this article is part of our advocacy in finding the lost bangsa sa RANAO and to strengthen it as per the principles of Islamic faith and no connection for the political issues.

After I visited Upper Egypt, then I moved back to Cairo city for me to attend the 1438 Hedjra New Year celebrations of Lozna Ranao in Cairo, a group of Mranao Olamas and Students in Cairo Egypt being their guest speaker. Ustadj Rodz, Ustadj Mahid and Al Alem Sammy Pitiilan fetched me from the airport of Cairo to Azhar, on our way to Azhar, I suggested to Rodz to have our lunch to the nearest Thai restaurant and suddenly we changes our minds and we went to Malaysian’s restaurant,

In the Restaurant; the lady in charge asked us if we are Chinese. and I humbly replied that we are Mranao from Mindanao, the lady introduced to me herself with happy face that she is an Iranun from Sabah Malaysia, then she called others Iranun staffs in the restaurant and we had short talk, since that they are not fluently in English we used Bahasa language, and they became more happy after they noticed that I can communicated in Malay language (FYI: Datu Ontay stayed in Indonesia for 3 years 2007-2001), then I promised to go back there in the other day to have more talks, as usual I captured a groufie  with them.


In the same day, I posted in FB the said group picture, them my paternal aunt (Anta Zuhaila daughter of my late grandfather to Bae a labi of Tubok) seen it and order me to asked the lady in the restaurant if she is connected in Tubok Malabang. Anta said (Go! alamin mo anng pmlya nla my kmag ank cna ome tga sabah ngyn ung ank nya nsa cairo) and I replied ok ! that time I was tired from Aswan Egypt.

When we reached the Philsac office in Nasser Cairo, Rodz offered me the guest room as my shelter, inside the room I realized the portion of the Binidayan’s Salsila, and it was written that our great-great grandfather called Sultan of Tampasuk, he was the son of Amana son of Maruhom Sayawa to Bae sa Buntong. As per oral story; in the late part of 18 CE, he visited Sabah then the Iranun of Sabah honored him as sultan of Tampasuk in Kuta Buleg, Sabah Malaysia, he was married there and no reported heirs. The late sultan of Tampasuk went back to Binidayan to his first family and Bored Datu sa Binidayan and Begot Maruhom the First enthroned sultan of Binidayan.

This question kept in my head, Why the Uncle of aunt Anta “Mangdao, H. Omar and Hadji Latip” lived in Sabah, is there any connection between their families to some Iranun clans of Sabah? Connected to my previous post, I received a message from a concerned legitimate citizen in Sabah containing a portion of gogod or Salsila how it happened of some prominent families in Sabah rooted in Malabang and Tubok, the Gogod goes these ways; hoping for the mentioned families to keep in touch of it. –Datu Ontay-

Gogodan !

Some writers said (the Iranun language and customs, including their music, traditional birth practices, weddings and death. It shows how a small community (in the low tens of thousands) in Sabah is changing and adapting to a constantly shifting environment – and is in danger of identity loss, to the detriment of the nation as a whole) please help to save the Iranun culture in Sabah –Datu Ontay-


In behalf of Pata pangampong a Ranao, we are proud and saluted to the new winner, the champion of King Abdulaziz international Qur-an reading competition 2016 4th Category, held in Makkah KSA, October 26, 2016.

The name of champion is Amer Abdullah Hassan and proud Muslim from Mindanao Philippine, who received cash prize of 30,000 Saudi Riyals and some consolations prizes...

The said winner is from Philippines with his "Muddarib" coach Al Alem Abuawwad Abdullah Lacsa Ibrahim Amanoddin of Zain bin Thabit Qur-anic institutes, they just came for Umra and for this competition, again Congratulations!!

this competition is about the correct way of pronouncing the noble Qur-an during prayer, quality of voice, memorization of entire sura, the judge read a portion of ayat in the noble Qur-an and contestant to continue reading it until the next judge will read other ayat and do the same way, the judges observe the contestant if he memorized entire sura in Qur-an, 

During the competition the 4 imams of Masjed al haram were presents headed by Imam Sudais, and Saudi Prince the Governor of Makka province who presented the awards to the winners from 4 categories, the success of Qari Amer Hassan in this competition is an inspirations to the young Meranao who wants to follow his foot step –Datu Ontay-

FYI: Amīr is one of the most sincere and humble person I have known his friend told in FB. Anyone acquainted with him would attest to his fine character and modest manners.

Amīr is not only a hāfizh of the Qur'an, he is a Mūjāz: his memory and recitation of the Qur'an were finely tested and refined by the most artful and proficient of Qur'an teachers. This earned him an honorable niche in the chain (sanad) of the noble recites of the Qur'an. Such chain only includes names of those were vouched for by their respective teachers to have artfully memorized and recited the Qur'an in the exact similar manner that the righteous predecessors have performed. The list links to itself the names of the Companions (may Allah be pleased with them) until it finally makes mention of the name of the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ, then the archangel Gabriel, then the Lord Almighty, Allah.

In the list, there are merely 23 recites and teachers that separate Amīr and the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ. Such sacred tradition called Ijāzah, which is also available in the other fields of Islamic scholarship, shall, of course, continue until the end of times.

Recently, Amīr won first place in the fourth category of the King Abdul Aziz International Qur'an Competition held at the sacred sanctuary of Masjid al-Harām in Mecca, Saudi Arabia.

May our hearts grow with love for the Qur'an, may we live by its teachings and commandments, and may it intercede for us in the Day of Judgment. (Submitted article from Datu Ontay’s FB friend and told not to mention his name)

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.


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)


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-

(AUGUST 11 & 12, 2016)

Other remarkable adventures of MGI-TRIPPERS are their visit to the highest peak of Makkah Province, 5th in the kingdom and frigid area most of the time. It is enthusiast of MGI group to tour and explore the areas either historical or tourist spots,

The trippers start their Journey from Jeddah to Wadi Mohammad town and took the new road between Alith city and Taif, on August 12, 2016 around 12: 45 AM. 12 trippers are:

The Ford of Kaka Gafar:

• Ameroden “Gafar” Sultan
• Mohammad Al Sharif
• Ahmad Cali
• Fahad Madid

The Toyota of Rashdi:

• Rashdi Dimakuta
• Najeeb Malawanda
• Manger Seradj Abdulhammid
• Mahid Lucman

The Totoya of Chairman:

• Datu Ontay (Emer of the Trippers)
• Hasanor Ahmad “Perot” H. Abubacar
• Amar Sultan
• Abdulhalik “Kaliki” Camid Abbas


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)


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)


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.


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


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,


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.


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)
