Asalamu Alaikum, Warahmatulahi Wabarakatuhu. There is no known evidence that the Sultante was abolished. It was taken out of legal existence by foreign sovereign powers since the Spanish encroachments up to the Present self-identified Philippine Republic and done so through forceful acquiscence. To abolish a Sultanate or country, its Sultan or President have to abrogate it, which was never done. Contrary to abdicating the throne is merely stepping down as did in the 1915 Carpenter Memorandum Agreement, and even thru a mere memorandum. The said Sultanate is still to this day constitutionally existing, however, without a totally recognize Sultan King or President as by the International Community. The said Sultanate is a self-evident State and Country to the present. Salam.

We should all realize and accept that the Sultan of Sulu is still Sultan Jamalul Kiram III. Regardless of what you've read on the internet with their beautiful but ficticious websites.
Firstly, how could a man like Datu Fuad Kiram become a Sultan when he was never been a Rajah Muda. CHECK the the RULE of SUCCESSION..
During Datu Fuad late grandfather's time Sultan Esmail Kiram II, Sultan Punjungan Kiram was his Raja Muda (crown prince) so when Sultan Ismael passed away, Datu Punjungan became his successor..
Sultan Punjungan Kiram"s Raja Muda was Datu Jamalul Kiram III. Subsequently, Datu Jamalul Kiram III became the Sultan when Sultan Punjungan Kiram passed away..
Whoever disagree with me should/can check the history of the Sultanate of Sulu and Philppine government

Correction: Sultan Esmail I and Datu Punjungan no longer has communication when Punjungan went to North Borneo. When Sultan Esmail I died Datu Punjungan is nowhere to be found in Sulu. Before Sultan Esmail Died he already declared that his heir is his eldest son Datu Mahakuttah Kiram and Sultan Mahakuttah's Crown Prince was Datu Muedzul Lail Kiram. Datu Punjungan only went home in 1980 long before Sultan Esmail died. He proclaimed himself sultan during the reign of Sultan Mahakuttah Kiram. The proclamation of Mahakuttah is supported by the old Rumah Bichara and the Wazir Amb. Abraham Rasul (also a wazir of Sultan Esmail) and even supported by the Philippine government by a presidential decree.....now check your history

Sultan Esmail I died in Dec. 1973, Jolo was burned and took over by the separatist in Feb. 1974....in May 1974 Sultan Mahakuttah was proclaimed by the Wazir, Rumah Bichara and the Philippine government (with crown prince Datu Muedzul Lail)normanl life in Jolo was again restored.

Bystander, no he is not installed by Espaldon. Check your history before you give your opinion. Why would he become caretaker since his father is the Sultan and he is the eldest and the primogeniture heir, I tell you Datu Punjungan is nowhere around for a long time before, during and after the death of Sultan Esmail. Abraham Rasul is the son of the old Wazir Hadji Butu, and was also the Wazir of Sultan Esmail Kiram I. If you see the coronation in 1974 Almost all the old Ruma Bichara that is still alive of Sultan Esmail was there. It is only given bad publicity by the other branch since Sultan Mahakuttah was supported by the late President Marcos. But what's wrong with that ? do you know that the brothers Sultan Jamalul III and Esmail II were also receiving allowance during the time of President Arroyo ??

Yes, the popular will of the peoples of the sulu and maguindanao territories concurred that the rightful heir goes to Adinda Famili; Maharaja Adinda Taup-Arpa. Google search: Maharaja Adinda Taup.
yes everybody have the right to say something...I'am also a true Royal blood my great ancestor Shaik Sayd Nassaruddin and the eldest granddaughter of former Mayor of Cagayan de Tawi-Tawi Datu "Kabulai"Amirul Kiram Jaafar and the Daughter of Datu Mawallil "Sozon" Amirul Kiram and Sharifa Hadja Nurrunhihar Ulod Hamad manglima Jumadil Sharif Sangkalang...It so nice to read all the comments about the "who is the legitimate sultan of Sulu and the confusion of young generation like me...
My concern is, Why do People claiming that they are the rightful heirs? and what so ever because of money and power? and discussing over "Allah's own"?"aanihin pa natin ang Kayamanan at Kapangyarihan sa mundo kung lahat tayo'y namatay na"?only piece of white cloth that we will bring in our grave... why not do something to be United and have a harmonious relationship or reunification of all clans so that we all know each other, we are big family and our great ancestors have so many wives, generation to generation that maybe is one reason why......and most of all Malaysian Government knows everything who is the rightful heir they just confusing us... My Great Grandfather The Father of Sabah Datu Mustafa Datu Harun Knew it all...

Can anyone tell me if a person named Lawrence Alan Gottfried was ever an Ambassador from Sulu. He is an american and Jewish and makes this claim on his letterhead. He lives in Boynton Beach Florida.
I have never heard of a Jewish person being an ambassador or dog catcher for a muslim state. Help me out here.
