A SALSILA: BATARA SHA PENGIRAN TENGAH OF HASHEMITE FAMILY IN THE 17TH CENTURY
This is the Salsila (genealogy) of Batara Sha Pengiran Tengah, a modern sultan, of the Hashemite family in the 17th century. The Tausug (people of the current) had been oppressed by foreign and local rulers. The legitimate and authentic sultan seems to be hiding as a sultan, because there many fake and pretender sultans have been enthroned by foreign colonizers and local leaders. The Sulu Sultanate is a divine trust based on the Turunan. It has five (5) manners of categories namely: Ilmawan (knowledgeable person), Bangsawan (noble person), Altawan (well-to-do family), Halimawan (brave and courageous person) and Pagmabugah Pa Tuhan (fear of Allah). These are the bases taken from Adat and Islamic principles. The main purpose of the study is to investigate the views of respondents based on quantitative and qualitative research on how to protect the Sulu Sultanate, Darul Islam. The wealth and nation as well as the rights of heirs/descendants are different from the fake claimants who had been recognized by the Spanish regime and the late President Marcos up to the present. The real Sulu sultan is centered on the Hashemite family. The data has three (3) concepts: Qawliyah (manner of sounds), Fihliyah (manner of actions) and Qalbiyah, (manner of hearts) which are beyond seeing (Aynul-Yakin), beyond truth, (Haqqul-Yakin), beyond faith (Kamalul-Yakin) and beyond the knowledge. (Ilmul-Yakin). These were the bases of the Focus Group Discussion (FGD). This study seeks to find the real heirs/descendants of the Sulu sultan based on the Salsila, the respondents come from two (2) municipalities, Jolo, Sulu and Bongao, Tawi-Tawi, provinces in southern Philippines.
