As I journey to the realm of Sultan Abdulaziz Zulkarnain, I sense a profound familiarity, as though I already know him despite our yet-to-be-made acquaintance. I anticipate that this visit will deepen our mutual understanding and strengthen our bonds as we collaborate towards shared objectives in economics and human development.

Moreover, I am enthusiastic about the opportunity to share our media and development expertise with the African and Arab world, leveraging our established partnerships with international organizations in Europe like UNIDO and the Atomic Energy Organization. The Philippines, with its diverse landscape and vibrant culture, offers abundant prospects for cooperation and progress. Magindanaw, in particular, serves as a testament to the resilience and determination of its people.

Queen Mariam's Brother, ZULKARNAIN MASTURA KUDARAT VI, Enthroned as the 26th Legitimate Supreme Sultan of Magindanao

Despite numerous aspirants vying for the title of Supreme Sultan of Maguindanao, the position has already been rightfully claimed by His Majesty Sultan Abdulaziz Zulkarnain Mastura Kudarat VI. He wasn’t only appointed as the legitimate successor by the late Sultan Salem but was also the popular choice of the Maguindanao people and hails from an unbroken line of Sultans since Sultan Muhammad Dipatuan Kudarat who reigned the Sultanate of Maguindanao from 1625 to 1671.

The enthronement took place last 14th of January during the Taazi’ah/Kanduli for the late 25th Supreme Sultan, Abdulaziz Guiwan Salem Mastura Kudarat V.  Flooded by thousands of people, the auspicious event was attended by big personalities from local and abroad including traditional leaders, politicians, religious leaders, tribal groups, representatives from 26 principalities of Mindanao: Municipalities of Palembang, Kalamansig, Bagumbayan, Sultan Kudarat, Matanog, Sultan Mastura, Maitum, Kiamba, Maasin, Kabacan, Pikit, Pagalungan, Datu Osin Sinsuat, Datu Blah Sinsuat, Dau Abdullah Sangki, Polomok, Isulan, Parang, SKP, Lebak, Kalamnsig and Labangan; Cities of Cotabato, General Santos and Marbel; and officers and men of the 6th infantry Division (KAMPILAN) PA AFP, Central Cotabato.

The Sultanate’s Cabinet members have recently revealed plans for two additional coronation ceremonies this year. The second ceremony will take place in Cotabato City on March 9th, extending its reach to the entire Mindanao region. The third and most significant coronation is scheduled to occur in October at the WCH Royal Summit in Manila. This event will host a multitude of international monarchs, dignitaries, and United Nations representatives, rendering it an extraordinary and memorable occasion.

The Crown Prince of Maguindanao, Datu Muamar (Mama) Mastura, has disclosed the order of succession of the Sultanate, as decreed by their late father, Sultan Guiwan Mastura Kudarat IV. “According to the last testament, after Sultan Salem, Datu Nain is to take over as the Sultanate's leader, thereby ensuring the unbroken tradition of succession. This dying wish of my brother, Sultan Salem has been upheld, and Datu Nain is the rightful heir to the throne.” His Royal Highness Datu Mama added, “We have recently discovered that a number of individuals, including some of our own relatives who have benefited from our father's kindness and compassion, are plotting to usurp the throne from us. Despite our family's relentless efforts to fortify the Sultanate, these individuals are driven by a desire for greater power and influence. Nonetheless, the truth about their intentions is widely known throughout Mindanao.” 

Renowned humanitarian and founder of international charity organization- We Care for Humanity (WCH), Queen Mariam Torres Mastura vowed to help ensure that the Sultanate emerges stronger than ever before. “As the crowned Bai Mompong sa Magindanaw, it is my duty to support my brother, the Supreme Sultan, in preserving the Sultanate and its goals. And I will not rest until I bring His Majesty to the United Nations to represent the interests of the Sultanate, and that the entire world recognizes him as the true Sultan of Maguindanao!”- said the crowned Queen of the Royal House of Luzon Tagalog.
