EARLY  HISTORY  OF  THE  PHILIPPINES                                                
(MAHARLIKA  ISLANDS)

ISLAM  WAS  INTRODUCED  IN  MAHARLIKA  ISLANDS  (PHILIPPINES)   IN  THE  EARLY  1310  CENTURY  BY  AN  ARAB  ISLAMIC  MISSIONARY,  FIRST  BY   TUAN  MASHA’IKA    AND  AFTER  COUPLE  OF  YEARS  IT  WAS   FOLLOWED  BY  SHEIKH  KARIMUL  MAKDUM   WHO  LANDED  IN  BUANSA  AND  PROCEEDED  TO  TAPUL  SULU  AND  TO  SIMUNUL  ISLAND. HE  WAS  THEN  FOLLOWED  BY  SHEIKH  AMINULLAH  MAKDUM   ( MAKDUM  MEANS  MASTER  OR  TEACHER ). THEY  BUILT  MASJID  WHICH  UNTIL  NOW  THE  RUIN  CAN  BE  SEEN  IN  TUBIG  INDANGAN,  SIMUNUL  ISLAND,  AND  THEIR  GRAVES  AS  WELL. 

IN  1390,  RAJAH  BAGINDA,  WHO  CAME  FROM  MENANGKABAW,  SUMATRA  INDONESIA  ARRIVED  AT  BUANSA  AND  CONTINUED  THE  WORK  OF  MAKDUM. 

IN  1450  SHARIEF  ABUBAKAR (KNOWN  AS  SHARIEFUL  HASHIM  OR  AS  ZAIN  UL  ABIDIN)  WHO  TRAVELED  FROM  IRAQ TO  INDONESIA  AND  FROM  PALEMBANG  TO  BRUNEI  THEN  TO  JOLO.  HE  THEN  CONTINUED  TO  ENLIGHTEN  ISLAM  UNTIL  HE  FOUNDED  THE  SULTANATE  OF  SULU  AND  BECAME  THE  FIRST  SULTAN  WITH  HIS  WIFE  PRINCESS  PARAMISULI  AS  THE  FIRST  SULTANA.  UNTIL  NOW,  THERE  WERE  35  SULTANS  FROM  SULTAN  ABUBAKAR  TO  SULTAN  MUHAMMAD  FUAD  ABDULLAH  KIRAM-I (THE  PRESENT  SULTAN  OF  SULU).

 

AFTER  ISLAM  WAS  ESTABLISHED  IN  SULU,  THE  MUSLIMS  MOVED  TOWARDS  MINDANAO (COTABATO) HEADED  BY  SHARIEF  KABUNGSUWAN.  HE  LANDED  IN  MAGUINDANAW  IN  THE  YEAR  1475  AND  LATER  MARRIED  PUTRI  TUNINA  AND  BECAME  THE  FIRST  SULTAN  AND  SULTANA  OF  MAGUINDANAW.

 

IN  THE  SUCCEEDING  YEARS,  MORE  MUSLIMS  CAME  TO  MAHARLIKA  ISLANDS   LIKE  THE  FAMOUS  10  DATUS  HEADED  BY  DATU  PUTI.  THEY  WERE  DATU   SUMAKWEL,  DATU  BANGKAYA,  DATU  DUMALOGDOG,  DATU  PAIBURONG,  DATU  PADUHINOG,  DATU  LUBAY,  DATU  DUMANGSIL,  DATU  BALENSULA(VALENZUELA) .  DATU  PUTI  WAS  A  KNOWN  NAVIGATOR  AND  THEY  LANDED  IN  SIWARAGAN (NOW  SAN  JOAQUIN  ILO-ILO)  IN  PANAY  ISLAND.  WHEN  THEIR  FAMILIES  WERE  FULLY  ESTABLISHED,  DATU  PUTI,  DUMANGSIL,  AND  BALENSULA  SAILED   NORTHWARD  AND  LANDED  IN  BATANGAS.  DATU  BALENSULA  AND  DUMANGSIL  ESTABLISHED  THEIR  COLONIES  THERE  WHILE  DATU  PUTI  RETURNED  TO  BORNEO  VIA  MINDORO  AND  PALAWAN.  HE  RELATED  HIS  ADVENTURES  TO  THE  BORNEANS  AND  MORE  WERE  ATTRACTED  TO  COME  TO  MAHARLIKA  ISLANDS.

 

MEANWHILE,  IN  THE  YEAR  1494,  THIS  WAS  THE  ERA  OF   KING  LUISONG  TAGEAN,  A  MUSLIM  KING  AND  A  DECENDANT  OF  KING  MARIKUDO.  KING  LUISONG  WHO  MARRIED  TO  QUEEN  LAMAYAN  AGATEP  BOWAN  HAD  TWO  SONS.  THE  ELDEST  WAS  DATU  LAPU-LAPU ( RULED  MACTAN  ISLAND  IN  VISAYAS )  AND  SECOND  WAS  RAJAH  SULAYMAN ( RULED  MANILA  IN  LUZON ).

 

(PLEASE  REFER  TO  FAMILY  TREE  OF  KING  LUISONG  TAGEAN)

 

BY  THE  TIME  THE  SPANIARDS    LANDED  IN  LIMASAWA  ISLAND   ON  MARCH  16, 1521   HEADED   BY  FERDINAND  MAGELLAN,  MAHARLIKA  ISLANDS  ( PHILIPPINES)  WAS  ALREADY  A  MUSLIM  COUNTRY  BECAUSE  MAJORITY  OF  ITS  POPULATIONS  WERE   MUSLIMS.  IT  IS  A  FACT  IN  HISTORY  THAT  WHEN  LEGASPI (SUCCESSOR  OF  MAGELLAN )  CAME  TO  MAHARLIKA  ISLANDS  (PHILIPPINES)  ,  MUSLIM  KINGDOMS   WERE  WELL  ESTABLISHED  IN  BATANGAS,  PAMPANGGA,  MINDORO,  PANAY,  CATANDUANES,  CEBU,  BOHOL,  SAMAR,  MANILA,  PALAWAN,   ASIDE  FROM  THE  SOLID  MINDANAO  AND  SULU  ISLAND. 

 

ON  JUNE  3,  1571    THE  SPANIARDS  LAUNCHED  A  MAJOR  ATTACKED  AGAINST  THE  MUSLIMS  IN  MANILA .  THE  MUSLIMS  WERE  HEADED  BY  RAJAH  SULAYMAN,  WHO  BRAVELY  DEFENDED  HIS  KINGDOM  UNTIL  THE  LAST  DROPPED  OF  HIS  BLOOD  IN  BANGKUSAY (TONDO’S  SEASHORE).  AFTER  THE  DEFEAT  OF  RAJAH  SULAYMAN,  THE  SPANIARDS  LAMBASTED  LUZON ,  KILLING  MEN,  WOMEN,  CHILDREN,  YOUNG  AND  OLD  ALIKE.  THE  MUSLIMS  ON  THE  OTHER  HAND  FOUGHT  TO  THEIR  LAST  BREATH  WITH  BOLOS  AND  SPEARS  AGAINST  GUNS  AND  CANNONS.   THE  SPANIARDS  ESTABLISHED  THEIR  CAPITAL  IN  MANILA  AND  PLANNED  TO  CONQUER  THE  VISAYAS  WHICH  THEY  SUCCEDED.  MUSLIMS  WHO  SURVIVED  THE  BATTLE  WERE  FORCED  TO  RECANT  THEIR  RELIGION  AND  ACCEPTED  CHRISTIANITY.  BUT  THE  BRAVE  MUSLIMS  CHOOSED  THE  GRAVE  RATHER  THAN  BLASPHEMED  AGAINST  ALLAH.  THE  NATIVES  ON  THE  OTHER  HAND  WHO  WERE  WEAK  IN  FAITH  ACCEPTED  THE  SPANISH  RELIGION  WHICH  IS  CHRISTIANITY.  THE  SPANIARDS  DID  NOT  STOPPED  IN  LUZON  AND  VISAYAS,  THEY  GREEDILY  DREAMED  OF  POSSESSING  THE  RICH  LAND  OF  MINDANAO,  BUT  THE  TAUSOG,  MARANAW,  MAGUINDANAW,  YAKAN,  SAMAL  AND  THE  SANGIL  TRIBES  CURTAILED  THE  SPANIARDS  AND  SO  THE  FAMOUS  MUSLIM-SPANISH  WAR  BEGAN.

 

THERE  WERE  TWO  CAUSES  OF  THE  WAR : 1.  THE  SPANIARDS  WANTED  TO  RULE  OVER  THE  MUSLIMS,  BUT  THE  MUSLIMS  LOVE  THEIR  FREEDOM  AND  WOULD  RATHER  DIE  THAN  TO  BECOME  A  SLAVE.  2. THE  SPANIARDS  WERE  PROPAGATING  CHRISTIANITY  AT  THE  POINT  OF  SWORDS,  SO  THE  MUSLIMS  PICK-UP  THEIR  KRIS  AND  SPEARS  TO  DEFEND  ISLAM.

 

SOME  DATUS  WHO  DEFENDED  MINDANAO  FROM  THE  FOREIGN  INVADERS  AND  OPPRESSORS  ARE  AS  FOLLOWS :

 

  1. SULTAN  PANGIRAN  – (TAUSOG)  WHO  DEFENDED  ZAMBOANGA  AND  SULU  AREA.
  2. DATU  SIRUGAN    AND  HIS  BROTHER  DATU  UBAL    (MAGUINDANAW)  KILLED  THE  SPANISH  INVADER- CAPT.  FIGUEROA.
  3. DATU  BUISAN   (LANAO )  AND  DATU  SIRUNGAN – (MAGUINDANAW)  LAUNCHED  A  COUNTER  ATTACK  TO  VISAYAS.  THEY  RAIDED  CEBU,  NEGROS  AND  PANAY  AND  CAPTURED  MANY  CHRISTIANS  WHO  WERE  MADE  SLAVES  BY  THE  SPANIARDS.
  4. DATU  TAGAL  – (COTABATO)  KILLED  MANY  SPANIARD  OPPRESSORS.
  5. SULTAN  KUDRAT  – (COTABATO)  DEFENDED  LAMITAN  UNTIL  HE  WAS  FORCED  TO  RETREAT  TO  ILIGAN  DUE  TO  THE  SUPERIOR  ARMS  OF  THE  SPANIARDS.
  6. SULTAN  BUNGSU – (ZAMBOANGA)  FOUGHT  FEROCIOUSLY  WHEN  HIS  WIFE  WAS  CAPTURED  BY  THE  INVADERS .  HE  INTENSIFIED  HIS  ATTACKED  AGAINST  THE  SPANISH  INVADERS  UNTIL  HE  FINALLY  LIBERATED  JOLO   IN  1645  AND  ORDERED  THE  DEMOLITION  OF  THE  SPANISH  GARRISON  WHICH  WAS  BUILT  IN  ZAMBOANGA.
  7. SULTAN  JAMALUDDIN  AL  ALAM   AND  SULTAN  BADRUDDIN-  III    CONTINUED  TO  DEFEND  MINDANAO  UNTIL  THE  ARRIVAL  OF  THE  BRITISH.  THE  SPANIARDS  WERE  FORCED  TO  SIGNED  A  PEACE  TREATY  AND  PAID  TAXES.
  8. DATU  UDTOG – (COTABATO)  KILLED  GOVERNOR  EMILLIO  TERRERO.
  9. DATU  ALI –  (LANAO)  KILLED  GOVERNOR  VALERIANO  WEYLER  OF  MISAMIS.
  10. THE  BRAVE  MUSLIM  TRIBES    KILLED  GENERAL  RAMON  BLANCO   DURING  THE  LAST  ATTEMPT  OF  THE  SPANIARDS  TO  CONQUER  MINDANAO.

 

THE  SPANISH  RULE  ENDED  IN  1898   AFTER   333 YEARS  OF  OCCUPATION  WHEN  THEY   SOLD  THE  ENTIRE  MAHARLIKA  ISLANDS  TO  THE  AMERICANS.  ACCORDING  TO  SOME  HISTORIANS  THEY  SOLD  IT  FOR  20,000,000   US$,  BUT  SOME  SAYS  FOR  90,000,000   US$  ON  DECEMBER  10, 1898   AFTER  3  MONTHS  OF  THE  EXCHANGE  OF    RATIFICATION  OF  THE  TREATY.   THE  FULL  AGREEMENT  CAN  BE  SEEN  IN  THE  TREATY  OF  PARIS.

 

IN  MAHARLIKA  ISLANDS  THE  MUSLIMS  WERE  GOVERNED  BY  ISLAMIC  LAWS   FOR  CENTURIES.  IN  EARLY  NINETEENTH  CENTURY,  AN  ISLAMIC  LAW  WAS  INTRODUCED  BY  TWO  MUSLIM  SULTANATES  IN  THE  SOUTH.   THEY  WERE  THE  LAW  OF  THE  SULTANATE  OF  SULU  DIWAN  TAUSOG (1878)  AND  THE   LUWARAN  MAGUINDANAW  OF  THE  SULTANATE  OF  MAGUINDANAW.

3 responses to “EARLY HISTORY OF THE PHILIPPINES

  1. Marcos returned some of the gold in the Philippines and hid them on the mountains all over the archipelago. Then he invented the infamous ” Yamashita treasure ” to confused the whole world. The source of all the bank accounts/assets/ in the world?…….>>>>>TANGEN

  2. The essence of all these is when Maharlika (covering the present Philippines thru Guam, Caroline Islands and to Hawaii) was colonial era, its sovereignty was based on ruling class uphold by the Sri Vigaya sattellite Country of the Majapahit Empire of Maharaja Pamirawasa of India to the Tagean ruling class and family clan. Spouses of this ruling class, no doubt as in Seri (present capital of Brunei) family ruling class was Zein Ul-Abidin who was married to Iskander the daughter of the Majapahit Empire’s Sovereign Head, Maharaja Pamirawasa. Naturally, we foresee that Zein Ul-Abidin was the first Vigayan Ruler who had overall authority for his father inlaw throughout the Satellite country state (later referred to as Malayas) wherein relatives were the ruling class family clan throughout Maharlika comprising of the Philippines, Malayas, Caroline Islands and far reaching Hawaii. After the fall of the Majapahit Empire in the 12th century, The son inlaw, Zein Ul-Abidin, in Seri established the first Sultanate of Bruney (Brunei) seated as Sultan Mohamad Shah with continuing dominion throughout Maharlika through the ruling class family clans who were His Inlaws. In turn His son Sultan Hassan Bolkiah had suzerainty throughout Maharlika then comprising of Selurong (Luzon) and or Manilad (Manila), Visayas, Maguindanao (as by the Maguindanao Family clan daughter married to Aliywa (Karim Ul-Makdum-Kabungsuwan) the brother of the Brunei Sultan; and far reaching the Malayas which included North Borneo-sabah and likely thru far reaching Guam, Caroline Islands and Havvaii (Hawaii). Raja Sulayman in Luzon, Raja Humabon in Visayas, Sultan Aliywa Kabungsuwan seated both in Malabang Lanao and in Dulawan Cotabato for the island of Mindanao, Sultan Shariful Hashim of Sulu who also took over the political authority of his Father inlaw-Raja Baginda Ali, Ali Panjungan in Kota Kanibalu, Johore in Sempurna, Gandjungan in Kaula Lampur and other relative ruling class family clan far reaching Raja Tulofufu of Guam and King Khameahmea of Hawaii. Over centuries of changes in government systems influenced by colonial encroachments and administration, the Tagean ( or Tallano as referred by prior trade visitors from Italy) family clan of the Bolkiah dominion, entered into agreement recognizing the Tagean as being the owners of the said lands, respective of other relatives throughout the former Maharilika country Estates. These colonial administrations ratified the recognition of ownership thru the already worldwide established Torrens System. Recognition by Spain, then the United States and thru the present Philippine republic. The Tagean/Bolkiah clan wanting of recognition for the protection of the Clan and the people that foreign powers may negotiate their intents and purposes of colonization thru the clan, while foreign powers recognition of the clan owners may have c0onsensus affect upon their doings during colonization stints. Thou under the Torrens System, it is stipulated that land titles thru absolute Deed of Sales are to the sole ownerships of the land buyer then legally as by the Torrens System, said lands are tacitly still belonging to these Family Clans, as by consanguinity-kinship. Yes, there are many present heirs from all over the former Maharlika who tacitly owns these. Tacitly, because ownership is now only within the purview of the TORRENS SYSTEM and the sovereignty of the country state can only be recognized as by the 1945 founding of the United Nations Organization and as by charter membership, only. Thus this said country state no longer legally a sovereign country as it was before. The only proof as being then a legally sovereign state is by treaty agreement, wherein none was made official. However, proof of such agreement between two countries is the “Torrens Title of lands” issued. Yes, the rightful owners are indeed the owners only tacitly, while may be constitutionally existing owners whenever these owners/heirs organized themselves of a central government, and with UN charter membership, their lands may be then recognized as sovereignty country-states. The only barring of this notion is the established Torrens System administering these lands under the sovereignty and territorial integrity of other sovereign states, otherwise. We can only be proud to say that we are tacit heir-owners of their lands and country-states. And we shall stand tall as being th elite class of society. HRH. Sharif Maulana Paduka Ahmad Carpenter Arpa-V ibni Maharaja Adinda Taup Angging (Anddin) Zein Ul-Abidin Al Marhum Sultan Sharif ul-hashim Abu’Bkr Mohamad Shah. http://www.royalsultanate.weebly.com
