SPEECH OF THE NATION ADDRESS
HIS ROYAL MAJESTY'S MESSAGE:
“Bismilla Hirakmanir-Raheem, Asalamu Alaikum Warahmatulahi Wabarakatuhu”
To my people, Mangga raayats ku, the royal citizens of the Sulu Sultanate; the people of the territories of Sulu, Tawi-Tawi, Basilan, Palawan, and North Borneo-Sabah; as well as the Territories of Maguindanao or so-called Mindanao and of Kalimantan, as by consanguinity.
The 1521 Spanish encroachment and the 1898 United States encroachment leading to the incorporation of the Mindanao and Sulu as part of the 1935 U.S. Commonwealth Government in the Muslim National Archipelago or so-called Philippines by Spain, the latter that sold it to the United States in the Treaty of Paris of December 10, 1898, had resulted to the emergence of the Philippine Republic in July 4, 1946 by the United States whereby, the Sultanate was never consulted nor acknowledged nor as a contracting party.
The Bates Treaty of August 20, 1899 wherein the Sultanate and its Sultan was a contracting party in the preservation of our religion, culture and law; our Adat Law and Shari’ah, the Bates Treaty was unilaterally abrogated by this United States without the knowledge of the Sultan of Sulu nor of His consent.
Clearly, the United States did not have proprietary ownership on the Muslim National Archipelago, ceded to them by Spain. The latter that, likewise, did not have proprietary ownership either.
The Sultanate existence and system emerged from the very first culture of the Summerians on earth, evolved in Arabia and Babylon-Iraq, the first that brought science to the world, Eastern Science. Whereby Western Sciences illuminated its basis from Eastern Sciences. The two pillars in the Sulu Sultanate national flag also, symbolic of its first Sultan and of the first Sultan of Brunei, one and only person who had manifestedly established the very first institutional government on the Muslim National Archipelago(Malayas) in the 1400 hundredths.
Our Sultanate, Antedated the 1776 United States of America, the 1957 Malaysia, and the July 4, 1946 Philippine Republic, the Sulu Sultanate Territories of Sulu, Basilan, Tawi-Tawi, and Palawan to the Philippine Republic; moreover, the Mindanao-Maguindanao, likewise. While North Borneo-Sabah to Malaysia and Kalimantan to Indonesia.
A continuing saga of unfounded cessesions since Spanish encroachments in the 1500 hundredths upon the Muslim National Archipelago once ranned by strings of Sultanates.
It is only the true royal bloodline family from Sultan Mohamad Fad’lun or better known as Pulalun who is aware of Allah’s earthly will or Masha’Allah of Allah’s Religion of Islam. The one God that all religions worships.
The question is, do these religions know that? No, not all know. That is why Allah sent Mohammad (Salai Lahu Alaihi Wassalam) and sealed the prophet-hood upon him as the last of the prophets with its completed and final message of Allah.
Why do you think Mohammad (S.A.W.) trembled in fear in the cave of Hira. Revealed to him was Allah’s completed revelations at its final stage. Mohammad could hardly comprehended Allah’s knowledge upon Him through the angel Gabriel, that Allah Himself took Mohammad (S.A.W.) to paradise or Sulgah, affirming to Mohammad (S.A.W.) the revelations towards universal peace for our souls.
Allah-hutaala stating to Mohammad (S.A.W.), quote, “I have given to you the same religion that I hath given to the prophets before you, and that is the religion of goodness-by which shall you call “AL-ISLAM.” Unquote.
The Bates Treaty of August 20, 1899 purpoted these goodness in assuring the protection and preservation of our religion, customs and special laws by the protecting arm of the United States through just courts during those turmoiled or turbulent days whereby our law of Shari’a was undermined by Spain.
However, the United States later continued what Spain had left-off by abrogating the 1899 Bates Treaty without consulting the Sultan as contracting party and having a later Sultan signed the 1915 Carpenter Memorandum and heedlessly incorporating our lands and territories with the 1935 U.S. Commonwealth Government and eventually in the making of the Philippine Republic on July 4, 1946.
What mistake done? Our people never had a chance for total nationhood with our counterpart in Manila.. But instead became bitter with each other and us branded as pirates and anti-Christ. Jesus Christ a prophet of Islam who had prepared the coming of Mohammad (S.A.W.).
His Highness addresses Himself to the delegates of this gathering of our order in the spirit of the Royal Sultanate and as a brother Ummah and Muslim brother; grateful but troubled by the suspension of our beloved Sultanate Country. Troubled in that sense that our country and strings of Sultanates as by consanguinity and blood-relations, and discussions attributing to Muslim secessionist movements in the Mindanao-Maguindanao and Sulu branded as terrorists bandits or plain criminals. This prejudicial discrimination impressed upon the public masses grieves me very deeply and much more as a Muslim. To note these patriotic acts of our people in defense of our sovereignty, seriously threatened with prejudiced by bias minds even as well as in our private daily lives amongst with non-muslims.
Now His Highness rise before this intellectual body not in defense of the “ugly head” resulting to the patriotic acts by some of our people’s defensive confrontations, but as the Sultanate’s Sultan- Religious Sovereign Head and Highest Spiritual Leader in defense of our faith, culture and Sultanate heritage to what erodes unity by our people as we see them through the eyes of Muslims and the Sultanate, our sovereignty violated with undermining veracity.
These patriotic acts by Muslims which has raised its “ugly head” has never been a problem during the Commonwealth period of 1935 and much less during the post-independence era from 1946 down to the signing of the new Philippine Constitution in November 1972 by the delegates of the 1971 Philippine Constitutional Convention. Our undying trust to U.S. and Philippine Administrations, our sons to say turned Prodigal, instead.
It was only after the abolition of the Philippine Congress of under the 1935 Constitution and the failure of the 1973 Philippine President to convene immediately the Interim Philippine Assembly upon the approval and ratification of the new Philippine Constitution by their people in early 1973 and after the fact of the "Jabidah" that our Muslims’ demanded for the return of our self-government in Mindanao and Sulu which started to germinate and grew rapidly into the proportions of being a Philippine national problem.
The coincidence of these two major Philippine political developments occurred during the incumbency of that then 1973 political regime – the total elimination of the Philippine legislative body composed of freely chosen representatives of the people and the eruption of our Muslim nationals being administered by them Philippine Republic, turned into explosive national proportions was not merely accidental or incidental; they were both under Philippine Administration organically related to each other in a manner similar to cause and effect. For in a constitutional Philippine Republic, the national legislature is the main pillar that supports the whole architecture of its democratic system of government. It is the chief symbol of national identity (or self-identified) as a nation. The principal embodiment of people’s sovereignty and statehood as a member of the international community of states that was lost during martial law. Likewise, that our Sultanate lost during foreign sovereign encroachments and foreign administrations. How much more, during martial law being administered by Philippine Republic and likewise to the present. Moreover, but not the least, it is the sole moral and political force (the legislature) that holds together the millions of peoples being administered upon into a united solidified whole. This was not applied upon Mindanao and Sulu either. It is only our Islamic/sultanate jurisprudence that holds our Muslims together as a unified whole.
Non-Muslims are distinct in religion, customs and practices, but to other respects, such as in heritage and historical traditions, they are just as much Muslims as us. Ethnically, they came from the same origin and belong to the same racial stock until Spanish encroachment had made them abandoned their Islamic heritage bound together by the mutable facts of foreign culture that had influenced their common history, faith and destiny.
Since, foreign encroachments upon us, we have displayed our actions and consistently, as well demonstrated in words and deeds our complete identification with the fundamental methods of Sultanate nationalism.
When the Japanese encroached, upon our non-Muslim brothers during World War II, our Muslims helped them fought side-by-side as keeping our identity that is harbored in them, whether they knew it or not. We fought with them against a common enemy in defense of our Sultanates’ lands that we thought, we were indeed wrong and weak in preventing them in the making of theirs self-identified motherland instead that materialized after the war on July 4, 1946, Philippine independence.
The subjugation of the non-Muslim areas to Japanese military occupation for four years in World War II was a supreme test of the spirit of being of the same racial stock and solidarity when we helped them fighting side-by-side as such, which binds us Muslims and non-Muslims together against that common enemy. But where are we Muslims now? We are considered by them, them who had forgotten their origin and changed their faith to an alternate religion of the West into with Western influences. The very same influences used against the American Indians, and upon us Muslims.
The Philippines’ 1971 Constitutional Convention which drafted its preamble of the new constitution formulating it in such terms as follows:
“We the Pilipino people, imploring the aid of divine providence, in order to establish a government that shall embody our ideals, promote the general welfare, conserve and develop the patrimony of our nation and secure to ourselves and our posterity the blessings of democracy under a regime of justice, peace, liberty and equality do ordain and promulgate this constitution”.
Yet, we are not Pilipinos, and as such; we are made minorities in our own lands and territories, our sovereignty subjugated with undermining veracity. His Highness exhorts to this foreign administration, in giving back the return of our total sovereignty and the return of our independence for it is rightful, just and moral. This rightful persuasion of His Highness and of His Highness rightful government. Wassalam.
“Asalamu Alaykum, Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuhu”
As professed by all religions of the world, the coming of the Messiah, by whose Allah’s hand cometh, as did the prophets and avatars of each nations for centuries, each an incarnate; the great judge and incarnate of Allah’s hands who is already from amongst us. He is THE BLESSED ONE WHO IS AMONGST US who will visit all nations of the world and be the great judge of all, distributing “wealth” evenly to all peoples that neither poor nor rich will exist, nor competition and jealousy. His justice will permeate everywhere. Earth, repleted with violence and wickedness will overflow with justice upon His arrival. Hadiths: p.23. (Qur’an). He is the awaited Al-MAITREYA of the hindus, the EMMANUEL of the Jews who was seen as a heretic and blasphemed, the CHRIST or anointed blessed one of the Christians, the AL-MAHDI of the Muslims. However, he will be considered by the unbelievers (non-muslims) as the ANTI-CHRIST (Dajjal) or false messiah.
Christian bible text indicated that “He will come like a thief in the night”. In the Muslim Hadiths, He will come to Muslim Nations in a appearance like a “Great Satan”(referred to as the west and its military might, as a Dajjal or Anti-Christ). But definitely, He is the Al-Mahdi. The centuries old Muslim Hadiths by Sahih Al-Bukhari also stated that Allah said; “by the one in whose hand is Myself, definitely the “son” of Maryam (so-called son mothered by Maryam) will soon descend among you as a just judge. And He will break the Cross, kill the Pig and abolished the Jizyah, and wealth will be abundant that no one will accept it.”
Qur’an 4:157-158 compiled in the advent time of the Nabi-Prophet Mohammad (Peace be upon Him) in approx. 500AD (compared to the Christian bible in 600AD), indicated; and (on account of) their saying “we killed the Messiah Isa/Jesus, son of Maryam, Messenger of God. But they did not kill Him, and they did not crucify Him, but it was made to seem so to them”. Those who argue about it have no knowledge of it but only conjecture. God raised Him up to Himself, His Spirit.
Qur’an Surah (3:55)Verse. God said, “Isa (Jesus), I will take you back and raise you up to me (rise you as my hand) and purify you of those who disbelieve. And I will place the people who follow you above those who disbelieve until the day of rising” (Judgement day). Then you (all) will return to Me and I will judge between you regarding the things about which you (all) differed.”
Qur’an (4:159), “There is not one of the people of the book (Jews), who will not believe in Him (Jesus) before he dies; and on the day of rising He will be a witness against them.” Qur’an P.499- “Jesus and the Mahdi (Messiah) together will work for to judge and save us. “He will certainly descend (accordingly in Mt. Rajeeb, Damascus) on earth (in another physical form) and he will call people to Islam, at that time. God will do away with all religions except for Islam.”
Nabi Mohammad (Peace be upon Him) had twelve Imam Progenies, all direct descendants of Him. The twelfth (12th) whose birth was a secret had a face that “glows” and was kept from the outside world. Perhaps, because his predecessors, eleven Imams, were all been poisoned, but one who was slain at the Mosque. This 12th Imam, Al-Madhi, according to centuries old Hadiths, will come from the east and go to the west (western country), comes from the south (south of Arabia is Kenya), and will go to the North (United States is in North America) and is a king (a President is like a King). He will be amongst us (may be 2009) three years before he declares himself in the day-of-judgment(may be in 2012). Al-Mahdi’s (Messiah) appearance in the middle-East will be look upon as a Dajjal (Anti-Christ or false messiah), he is “a thief that comes in the night”, Anti-Christ by the Christians because of being a Muslim, a Dajjal (false Messiah by the Muslims because he comes with the U.S. Military Might descanted as an appearance of a Dajjal) of a great county that he stands as President. The United States Military Might to the Muslim countries, is usually regarded by Muslims as the “great Satan”.
The Al- Mahdi (Messiah), He will take the fight to the Zionists-Jewish rebels or the Illuminati movements, to the Dajjal-false Messiah in preparation of the Prophesies by all Prophets’ in whose Allah’s hands is Himself-incarnate, may Peace be upon them all, them one and only hand of Allah, who will kill the Dajjal.
The false Messiah (Dajjal) looks through his left eye as his right clutches close, from the east he goes to the west and undermines in protest as an activist, all government systems-particularly of the western world for the hardships and poverty of mankind. He have a solution to the problem he calls “The value of nothing”. It is a concept of removing values on anything of value so anyone other may avail such de-valued thing as a needful thing, the same things that one de-values so others may avail. Promotes, advertise and/or advocates communism,” all for one, one for all”. And He right-out proclaims himself as the Al-Maitreya (Hindu name for the Messiah). He is, presently, well recognized and treated as a VIP by all Sovereign Heads of States-Presidents because he supposedly have solutions to economic downfalls and stated that his only ambition is to be Prince. One that fits these descriptions is no other than the activist Raj Patel, the Author of the Book; “The Value of Nothing”. He talks with several facial expressions and head movements. On quick instances, he clutches his right eye close and advertises “communism”, its principles. The Dajjal (Anti-Christ) has been mentioned in the Holy Qur’an, the one reported by Al-Mutarim to Prophet Mohammad (s.a.w.) that the Dajjal asked him ( Al-Mutarim) of the Saudis. Al-Mutarim said that the Saudis followed Mohammad. The reply back was, “It is better for them to have followed Him’. Synonymously all peoples should.
Other Quranic verses, Hadiths and Surahs proves truth of the preceedings: Qur’an 22:7-“and the hour (day) is coming soon”, Qur’an 27:93-”He will show you His signs and you will recognized them’. Qur’an 49:53-“The eclipse in Ramadhan will be before the Mahdi emerges”. In July 19, 1981 Friday, there was a lunar eclipse and in July 29 and 31, 1981 Friday was a solar eclipse. So was in July 2 and 6, 1982 both on Tuesdays. 1982 is Hijrah 1402 in Taliqan indicative of the warning.
Qur’an P.54- “Before He (Mahdi) comes, a comet spreading light will come from the east”. Qur’an P.32-“The birth of a star will follow the eclipse of the sun and moon”. 1986 (Hijrah 1406 ), Hailey’s comet passed from east to west and many events happened before and after: “People of the new will suffer”(middle-east wars, Persian gulf, world wars.), Egypt’s plague and the deaths of first borns, river Nile turn red, Pharaoh’s troops drowned during Moses’ time and Noah’s flood.
1979 (Hijrah 1400), a Friday prayers at the Kaaba, Mecca was unable to proceed during the Hajj-pilgrimage due to battle between Saudi troops and Iranian militants because of the latter’s attack massacre on arriving pilgrims wearing no head-cover. 30 died, 90 was held hostage.
1986 (Hijrah 1407), 402 died in Mecca close by the Kaaba due to protesting Iranians carrying posters of the Ayatollah Kohmenie. Same time was the invasion of Afganistan by the Soviet-Russia USSR, so was the emergence of the Taliban freedom fighters.
Before Al- Mahdi comes, “widespread slaughter will come to pass and great strife will be seen and extreme sufferings will occur. When he comes (unknowingly by people), attacks will be aim at the innocent”. This seems like the face of terrorism by which the targets are the innocents.
Qur’an P.49-“The inhabitants of Egypt and Sham will kill their Ruler and his commands”: Anwar Sidat of Egypt was assassinated in 1981. Sham not only means Damascus but also means Left. To the left, many Sham region rulers were killed as the 1920 Salah Al-deen Beeter the President of Syria, 1921 Droubi Pasha the Prime Minister of Syria, 1949 Muhsin Al-barazi a Prime Minister of Syria, 1951 King Abdullah of Jordan, and 1982 Bashir Gemayel of Lebanon.
Qur’an 16:96-97, “Anyone who acts rightfully, male or female, and being a believer (Muslim), we will give them a good life and we will recompense them according to the best of what they did”.
Qur’an 10:25:26, “Neither past nor debasement will darken their faces. They are the companions of Paradise, remaining in it timelessly forever”.
Allah said to Mohammad (Peace be upon Him), that He had given unto him the same religion given to the Prophets before, that is the Religion of goodness, by which shallest call AL-ISLAM.
Evidently since “ADAM”, whether non-Muslims knew it or not, Islam was man’s religious doctrine. Explains why to this day Muslims are the custodians, practically, of Prophets’ tombs and graves, such as; of Jesus, Noah, Moses, Abraham and many others since Adam.
His Highness’ analytical study of the above, not a synopsis of His Highness but one of itself and as already indicatively implied in historical Qur’anic and biblical texts, are evidently apparent of today. As Sultan and Highest Spiritual Religious Sovereign Head of state, it is conveyed to all to be steadfast in faith and of Allah’s Religion.
