There are historians who say that the actual shelf-shaped empire and not yet the king did not hold a sultan. Shelf, said historians are still a duchy. However, for the sake of simplicity, we use the first opinion by calling the shelf as a sultanate. Sultanate located in the area Kartasura shelf (near surakarta or solo), Central Java. The Sultanate is the first Islamic kingdom located in the hinterland. Previously, the kingdom of Islam has always been in the coastal areas, since Islam came via traders from western Asia are anchored on the coast. The first Sultan kerebet shelf is mas. It stems from pangging, villages in the southeast slopes of Mount Merapi. Mas is the son of the ruler Pengging kerebet last, handayaningrat, who was sentenced to death by the emperor of the Holy. The death penalty was given because Handayaningrat follow the teachings of Sheikh Siti Jenar deemed heretical. Mas karebet has another name, namely Jaka Tingkir. Tingkir Kerebet mas is the name of the place grew.


Syahdan, a raging bull in demak. A contest was held in Demak. Sultanate demak states that anyone who can conquer the bull, will be appointed as a retainer of the empire. Jaka tingkir these contests, and he succeeded in paralyzing the bull. Therefore, Jake received Tingkir serve, even then the son of Sultan Trenggana and given an area called the shelf, with Jake Tikir as adipatinya. After the sultan Trenggana died in 1546, his son is named Sunan Prawoto appointed as his successor. However, he later died were killed in the seizure of power by his own nephew, the Arya Panangsang.

Furthermore, Arya demak Penangsang became ruler. But because the duchy shelf has also been growing strongly and has a vast territory there was disagreement between the bachelor and arya Penangsang tingkir. With the help of other duchy duchy, which also did not like arya Penangsang, bachelor tingkir finally managed to kill Arya Penangsang.

At that time the child Ki Gede danang Sutawijaya Mataram, was waiting behind a bush across the river gerumul. When Arya Penangsang arrived on the shores of river, opposite released a mare. Thus, direct rimang crow chasing a mare is out of control, and cross the river solo. Across the river, Danang Sutawijaya ready, wielding tombank Kyai Plered. Position so close, Arya Penangsang was stabbed with a spear in hand Sutawijaya. He fell, his intestines spilled. However, arya Penangsang rose again, and wrapping his intestines on the keris, Kyai Satan Kober. Then he lunged Sutawijaya, while wielding keris.

Thanks to the spice trade in Ternate enjoyed impressive economic growth, and to strengthen its hegemony in the Moluccas, Ternate began to expand. This has led to resentment and jealousy enlarge another kingdom in Maluku, Ternate they view as a common enemy to trigger a war. In order to stop a protracted conflict - soluble, king of Ternate to-7 Kolano Chile Aiya also called Arif Malamo Kolano Sida (1322-1331) invited the king - king of the Moluccas another reason to make peace and form an alliance. The Guild was later known as Moti or Motir Persekutan Verbond. Important points of this meeting is in addition to establishment of uniform shape institutional fellowship kingdom in the Moluccas. Therefore this meeting was attended by four of the strongest king Moluccas it is also known as communion Moloku Kie Raha (Four Mountain Moluccas).

Arrival of Islam
There was no obvious source for when the early arrival of Islam, especially Ternate in the Moluccas. But is expected since the beginning of the kingdom of Ternate Ternate society has come to know Islam considering the number of Arab traders who had settled in Ternate at the time. Some of the early kings of Ternate is already using the name of Islam but the certainty of their nuances and the royal family embraced Islam is still debated. Can only be sure that the royal family embraced Islam the official Ternate mid-15th century.

Kolano Marhum (1465-1486), ruler of Ternate to-18 is the first known king embraced Islam with all the relatives and courtiers. Substitute Kolano Marhum is his son, Zainal Abidin (1486-1500). Some of the steps taken by Sultan Zainal Abidin is leaving the title Kolano and replace it with the Sultan, Islam is recognized as the official religion of the kingdom, imposed Islamic law, form the royal institution in accordance with Islamic law involving the clergy. The steps are then followed by another empire in the Moluccas in total, almost without change. He also founded the first madrasah in Ternate. Sultan Zainal Abidin ever deepening sit under the teachings of Islam by Giri on the island of Java, where he was known as the "Sultan Bualawa" (Sultan Cloves).

The arrival of Portugal and civil war
In the reign of Sultan Bayanullah (1500-1521), Ternate growing, people are required to dress Islamically, boat building techniques and weapons obtained from the Arabs and Turks used to strengthen the forces of Ternate. In this period also the first Europeans arrived in the Moluccas, Loedwijk de Bartomo (Ludovico Varthema) in 1506. Portugal in 1512 for the first time set foot in Ternate under the leadership of Francisco Serrao, with the approval of the Sultan, Portugal allowed to set up a trading post at Ternate. 

Portugal came not alone - eye to trade but to control the spice trade - spices nutmeg and cloves in the Moluccas. For that first they must conquer Ternate. Bayanullah Sultan died leaving heirs - heirs are still very young. Widow of the sultan, and the Prince Consort Nukila Taruwese, sister of the late sultan acted as a guardian. Empress Nukila the origin of Tidore Ternate and Tidore intended to bring together under one crown which is one of his sons, princes Hidayat (later Sultan Dayalu) and the prince Abu Hayat (later Sultan Abu Hayat II). While the prince Tarruwese wants the throne for himself.

Portugal took advantage of this and pitting them until civil war broke out. Kubu Nukila supported empress prince of Tidore while Taruwese supported Portugal. After a victorious prince was betrayed and murdered precisely Taruwese Portugal. Portugal acts as an advisor to the Governor of the kingdom and the influence that the kingdom was able to persuade the council to lift Tabariji as a sovereign prince. But when the Sultan Tabariji began to show hostility, he was vilified and banished to Goa - India. There he was forced Portugal to sign an agreement making the Christian kingdom of Ternate as vassal kingdoms and Portugal, but the treaty was rejected Sultan Khairun (1534-1570).

Expulsion of Portugal
Treatment of Portugal against brother - his brother the Sultan Khairun furious and determined to expel the Portuguese from the Moluccas. Follow-up - horns on this one western nations also infuriated the people who ultimately stand behind the sultan Khairun. Since the sultan Bayanullah, Ternate has become one of the three most powerful empire and a major Islamic center in the archipelago of the 16th century in addition to Aceh and Demak after the fall of the Malacca Sultanate in 1511. The three formed the Alliance Three to stem the lunge Portugal in the archipelago.

Do not want to be the second of Malacca, Sultan Khairun waged war expulsion of Portugal. Portugal's position was very strong at that time, besides having the power of the fort and pockets throughout the Moluccas they also have allies - allies of indigenous tribes that could be deployed to head off Ternate. With the Aceh and Demak that continue to threaten the position of the Portuguese in Malacca, the Portuguese in the Moluccas difficulty getting reinforcements up to the Sultan was forced to beg peace Khairun. In Portuguese crafty governor, Lopez de Mesquita Sultan Khairun invited to the negotiating table and end up with the cruel killing of Sultan who come without bodyguards.

The murder of Sultan Ternate Khairun increasingly encourage people to get rid of Portugal, even the whole Maluku now supports the leadership and the struggle Baabullah Sultan (1570-1583), Portuguese outposts throughout the Moluccas and pounded eastern Indonesia, after fighting for 5 years, finally left the Moluccas Portugal for good in 1575. Ternate people's victory is a victory first sons of the strength of the western archipelago. Under the leadership of Sultan Baabullah, reaching Ternate's heyday, the area stretching from North and Central Sulawesi in the west to the Marshall Islands to the east, from Filipinos (South) in the north to the islands of Nusa Tenggara in the south. Sultan Baabullah dubbed "the ruler of 72 islands" which are all uninhabited (Dutch historian, Valentijn tells in detail the names of all 72 islands) to make the sultanate of Ternate as the greatest Islamic kingdom in eastern Indonesia, as well as Aceh and Demak that controls the western and central archipelago at that time. Period of three golden empire during the 14th and 15th centuries whether intentionally or not excluded in this nation's history when they were first pillar is to stem the western colonialism.

The arrival of the Dutch
After the death of the Sultan of Ternate Baabullah began to weaken, which has united Spain with Portugal in 1580 trying to regain control by attacking Ternate Moluccas. With the new force Spain to strengthen its position in the Philippines, Ternate was an alliance with Spain Mindanao but failed to dispel even the Sultan Said Barakati Spain successfully captured and exiled to Manila. Defeat after defeat suffered by the force of Ternate asked help of the Netherlands in 1603. Ternate eventually succeed in return for holding Spanish but very expensive. The Netherlands finally slowly mastering Ternate, dated June 26, 1607 the Sultan of Ternate signed a VOC monopoly in the Moluccas in return for aid against the Spanish Netherlands. In the year 1607 also the Dutch built fort Oranje on Ternate, which is their first fort in the archipelago.

Since the beginning of a relationship that is unhealthy and unbalanced between the Dutch and Ternate lead to dissatisfaction of the rulers and nobles of Ternate. Among them is a prince Hidayat (15?? - 1624), the young King of Ambon is also a former trustee of this king of Ternate, who led the opposition against the position of the sultan and the Netherlands. He ignored the agreement the Dutch trade monopoly by selling spices - spice merchant to Java and Makassar.

People's resistance and the fall of Ternate, Moluccas


The longer grip and the Dutch influence on the sultan - the stronger the sultan of Ternate, Dutch freely that hurts the regulations issued by the sovereign command, the brash attitude of the Dutch and the Sultan attitude that tends to lead to disappointment all the obedient. Throughout the 17th century, at least there are 4 insurrection fought by nobles and people of Ternate, Moluccas.

In 1635, for ease of supervision and spice prices slumped mengatrol Dutch decided to do logging large - scale clove and nutmeg trees throughout the Moluccas, or better known as Hongi Tochten, consequently the people fomenting resistance. 1641, led by the young king Salahakan Luhu Ambon, Ternate tens of thousands of joint forces - Hitu - Makassar demolish various Dutch position in the Central Moluccas. Salahakan Luhu later arrested and executed along with his entire family on June 16, 1643. The struggle then was continued by brother-Luhu, Hitu Kakiali and Tolukabessi capita until 1646.

Year 1650, the nobles fomenting resistance in Ternate Ternate and Ambon, the revolt was triggered Sultan Mandarsyah attitude (1648-1650,1655-1675), which are too familiar and considered likely to placate the Netherlands. The nobles conspired to lower Mandarsyah. Three of the main rebel prince trio Saidi, Majira and Kalumata. Prince Capita Saidi is a Marine or army supreme commander of Ternate, the young prince is king Majira Ambon while the prince sultan Mandarsyah Kalumata is the younger brother.

Saidi and Majira led the rebellion in the Moluccas center while the prince joined the king of Gowa Kalumata Sultan Hasanuddin in Makassar. They even managed to lose the sovereign from the throne and lifted Mandarsyah Manilha Sultan (1650-1655) but thanks to the help of the Dutch position Mandarsyah reinstated. After 5 years of the rebellion put down Saidi et al. Prince Saidi brutally tortured to death while Majira prince Sultan and Kalumata receive forgiveness and live in exile.

Sultan Muhammad Nurul Islam, better known by the name of Sultan Sibori (1675 - 1691) was frustrated with the follow - Dutch horn arbitrary - pa. He then established alliances with the rulers of Mindanao Datuk Abdulrahman, but its efforts to join forces less than the maximum because the area - the strategic areas that can be relied upon to base resistance already fallen into the hands of the Dutch by the various agreements that made its predecessors. He was defeated and forced to evacuate to Jailolo. Dated July 7, 1683 Sibori Sultan was forced to sign an agreement that essentially makes Ternate as the dependent kingdom of the Netherlands. This agreement put an end to the Ternate as a sovereign state.

Despite having lost some of their power to keep fighting the next Sultan of Ternate Ternate release from the clutches of the Netherlands. With limited capability because they are always supervised only people capable of supporting the struggle in silence - silence. The last one in 1914 Sultan Haji Muhammad Usman Shah (1896-1927) moves people's resistance in the territory - territory, began in the Banggai region under the leadership of Hairuddin Tomagola but failed.

In Jailolo people Tudowongi, Tuwada and Kao led by Capita Banau managed to cause damage in the Netherlands, many Dutch soldiers who were killed, including the Netherlands Coentroleur Agerbeek, their headquarters laid - apart. However, because the military superiority and a more complete arsenal owned by the Dutch resistance was successfully broken, Banau capita was arrested and sentenced to hang. Sultan Haji Muhammad Usman Shah proved to be involved in this rebellion is therefore based on the Dutch East Indies government's decision, dated 23 September 1915 no. 47, Sultan Haji Muhammad Usman Shah was removed from the position of the sultan and all his property confiscated, he was disposed to Bandung in 1915 and died there in 1927. Post-reduction Sultan Haji Muhammad Usman Shah sultan had vacant positions for 14 years and is run by the customs administration and council Jogugu empire. Had appeared the Dutch East Indies government's desire to remove the sultanate of Ternate, but the intention was nevertheless carried out for fear of a backlash that could trigger a new uprising while Ternate was far from the center of the Dutch government in Batavia.

In the age which is now entering the age of 750 years, the Sultanate of Ternate was still retained even though only a mere symbol. Position as the leader of the sultan of Ternate to the 49th sultan now held by Drs. H. Mudaffar Sjah, BcHk. (Mudaffar II) who was crowned in 1986.

Heritage Ternate
Empire led the archipelago east of Ternate has indeed been falling since the mid-17th century but the influence of Ternate as a kingdom with a long history still felt until centuries later. Ternate has a huge stake in the culture of the archipelago, especially the eastern part of Sulawesi (north and east coast) and the Moluccas. It includes the influence of religion, customs and language.

As the first monarch to embrace Islam Ternate has a major role in efforts pengislaman and the introduction of Sharia-Islamic law in the eastern archipelago and the southern Philippines. Form of imperial organization and the application of Islamic law was first introduced by Sultan Zainal Abidin, a standard that is followed all the kingdoms of the Moluccas nearly without any significant change. The success of the people under the sultan of Ternate Baabullah in ousting Portugal in 1575 is the first victory over the forces of western native archipelago, hence the late Buya Hamka even praised the victory of the people of Ternate has been delayed colonization western archipelago on earth for 100 years as well as strengthening the position of Islam, and if the people of Ternate failed to eastern Indonesia will undoubtedly be the center of Christianity as well as the Philippines.

Ternate position as an influential kingdom also participated in raising the degree of Ternate language as a lingua franca in various regions under its influence. Prof. E.K.W. Masinambow in his writing: "The language of Ternate in the context of language - Austronesian and non-Austronesian language" suggests that the language of Ternate has the greatest impact on the use of Malay society eastern Indonesia. As many as 46% in Manado Malay vocabulary is taken from the language of Ternate. Malay language - Ternate is now used widely in eastern Indonesia, especially North Sulawesi, Central Sulawesi and the eastern coast of South Maluku and Papua with a different dialect - different. Two of the world's oldest Malay manuscript is a manuscript letter of the Sultan of Ternate Abu Hayat II to the King of Portugal on 27 April and 8 November 1521 which is still stored in the museum of Lisbon - Portugal.

See Debus Banten Culture | HISTORY OF CULTUREAfter saying the mantra "you touch my skin haram, haram you drink my blood, you are forbidden to eat flesh, veins kawang, wesi bone, skin of steel, I come out of the womb of the mother. I say la ilaha illahu ". So at that moment he thrust the dagger into the thighs, arms, stomach and other body parts. At that time he also grabbed the neck of the attractions of a small child as he drew his machete into the child. Surprisingly the former is missing a bolt machete scar that is very dangerous for the child.


Attractions that are very dangerous we used to know called Debus, Debus said that martial arts originated from al-Madad area. The longer the martial arts is growing and growing in all societies as an art entertainment offerings for the community. Core of the show is still very strong movement or martial arts and weapons use. Debus arts offerings are widely used and focus on a person's immune players against sharp objects, and sort of sharp weapon is called the Debus.

Grow and develop this art since hundreds of years ago, along with the development of Islamic religion in Punjab. In awalna this art has the function as the spread of religion, but in the Dutch colonial period and during the reign of Sultan Agung Tirtayasa. This martial art is used to evoke the spirit of the warrior and the people who made offerings against Dutch colonialism. Because at that power is not balanced, which has a dutch weapons very complete and sophisticated. Continue to urge the fighters and people of offerings, the only weapons they have no other martial arts heritage of Debus, and they take the fight as guerrillas.


Debus in Arabic which means sharp weapons made of iron, has a pointed tip and slightly rounded shape. With this tool Debus injured players, and usually can not be penetrated even Debus was beaten many times by others. Attractions attraction of this body immunity is another variation of existing Debus performed. Among other things, stabbing stomach with a sharp object or cutting, slicing the body with a machete until the injured and uninjured, eating fire, insert a long needle into the tongue, skin, cheeks until translucent and not injured. Slicing limbs to wounded and bleeding, but can be cured at once, flush the body with hard water are attached to clothes dibadan crushed, chewed glass / glass flake, burn the body. And many more attractions that they do.

In doing this attraction every player has a requirement that heavy conditions, before they perform the ritual ritual performances given by their teacher. Usually done 1-2 weeks prior to the ritual performed. In addition they are also required to have a strong faith and be confident with the teachings of Islam. Precepts for whistle players are not allowed to drink liquor, gambling, playing a woman, or steal. And the players also need to be sure and do not hesitate in carrying out such action, violations committed by a player can greatly endanger the lives of these players.

According to some historical sources, Debus has a relationship with the congregation in the teachings of Islam. Which in essence is very thick with religious philosophy, they are in a very happy face to face with his god. They slammed their ketubuh sharps, no effort but because God alone. If God did not allow a machete, machetes and bullets injure them. And they will not hurt.


At this time many warriors living in the Village Walantaka Debus, District Walantaka, Serang District. Which is unfortunate presence diminished the longer whistle, because the young men would rather find another livelihood. And because this attraction is also quite dangerous to do, because not many players Debus who rarely harmed by lack of exercise and there are "ignorant" to show they are doing. So the longer the cultural heritage is increasingly extinct. In the past we can see the attraction of this whistle offerings in many areas, but now there are only Debus attractions at the event - a specific event. So not every day we can see this attraction. Cultural heritage, which is increasingly eroded by the changing times.

Sultan of Ternate Baabullah

Sultan of Ternate Baabullah | HISTORY OF CULTURECaliph of Islam Nusantara and Conquering The imperialists. Ternate is currently a 'hot area' due to the nuances of racial conflict, save the gold scratches glory of Islam. History records the existence of several Islamic empire under the wise leadership of the king there. Not surprisingly, the famous adventurer Ibn Battuta called the region as Jazirat Al-Mulk (Kings Peninsula). One phase of the glory that is under the control of the Sultan Baabullah (SB), Ternate Muslim figure who could act as a wise ruler. Under the control of his reign, the kingdom of Ternate able to appear as a fair, could protect all levels of society, including among non-Muslims.


Of course, the Christian missionary movement that devastated the nature of tolerance with the firm will dilibas. This is evidenced when the SB led the resistance against the Portuguese colonialists, who intend to colonize not only economically but also aqeedah. Ruler of Ternate, dubbed `Caliph of Islam Nusantara 'was finally able to get rid of the Portuguese, with a beautiful model and the Islamic resistance.

Baabullah the Conqueror, Born in Ternate, February 10, 1528 M, Baabullah is the 5th generation of Sultan Zainal Abidin (1485-1500). Sultan Bayanullah is the first generation (1500-1522), the second Sultan Noekila Maharani (1522-1532), the third Sultan Tabarija (1532-1536), and the fourth Sultan Chairun Janil (1536-1570).

In youth, Baabullah been trained by the military problems and Salahaka Salahaka Sula Ambon. Both the Commander of the Kingdom of Ternate. Thanks to the guidance of these two characters, in a relatively young age has been appointed Baabullah Kaicil Paparangan (supreme commander of the armed forces).

In the field of Islamic religious knowledge, the court also did not weary of preachers-jemunya Baabullah guide. This gallant young man was prepared to hold the reins of the kingdom of Ternate. Be it, in addition to administrative and military control, mentally as well educated as a potential replacement Chairun sultan. One more, one day he was expected to carry out the task of leading the holy war against the arrogance fi sabilillah Europe. When the Sultan of Ternate, who was appointed to-25, age Baabullah already quite mature, about 42 years. All the inhabitants of the kingdom did not hesitate because he has trained in various real-time battlefield struggle against the Portuguese.

Proved to be. Increasingly fierce resistance against the Portuguese in his reign. In her mind she always remembered the times dodora grief (grief) when he had carried the corpse Chairun Sultan, his father, who destroyed his body, his heart was taken by Portuguese soldiers to be presented to Rajamuda Portuguese in Goa India (1570). But the spirit that made him give up the Ri Jou's to nonakogudu moju se to suba (Only to God poured out hope, though unseen still be worshiped because He exists).

Portuguese arrived in Ternate itself around the year 1511, led by Admiral Francesco Serrano. They received Bayanullah Sultan (King of Ternate the time) very well. But perhaps because of the unpleasant nature of the Portuguese, the arrival of the Europeans that eventually sparked the war. Bayanullah successor to the throne, Sultan Maharani Noekila, emphatically declared war against the Portuguese. Sultan Tabarijja also rekindle the flame of resistance, until the captivity in Goa and finally died in Malacca. SB's father, Sultan Chairun Janil, continued resistance, before it finally died tragically. The father is what continues to rekindle the spirit and consciousness as an independent nation in his son's chest, SB. One of his counsel tape recorded in history are:

"Between Islam and Catholicism there is a huge gap. The history of the triumph of Islam in Andalusia (Spain), Caliph of the West, making them hated and envied the greatness of the Sultanate of Ternate. They suffer from hatred and destruction anywhere at any look at Islamic countries, both in Goa, Malacca, Java, and here we are in the Moluccas. If we lose then at Ternate our fate would be similar to the lands of Islam in Java, Sulawesi and Sumatra. "


An advice that was so impressive for the SB. Moreover, during the Portuguese crafty so this is also known Ternate a few times a fool. For example when the crown prince killed Dayle (1532), the handover of sovereignty to the Portuguese under King Alfonso II (1536), violations of religious oaths and Musquita Chairun Sultan agreed, and the peak of deaths Chairun sadistically. Be the kingdom of Ternate in the SB as the toughest rivals that made the Portuguese colonialists dizzy. Ternate famous mighty fleet, plus vessels from Java (Jepara), Malay, Makassar, Buton, making a complete fleet of Portuguese arms as if he did not mean anything. Finally Tolocce Fort (built in 1572), St. Lucia Fortress (1518), and Saint Pedro (1522), fell into the hands of paramilitary kora-kora Ternate.

Assault tactics made carefully for months, even years. Canga-canga troops consisting of the tribe fire arrows equipped Tobelo toxic. Warriors armed with cannons Kolano Baabullah spoils of the Portuguese fort at Sin Hourra Castel Del Rosario who is the center of Portuguese atrocities in Southeast Asia. In this castle was educated missionaries to spread Catholicism in the Moluccas and the surrounding region. Unfortunately, the Catholic population of Ternate less acceptable because it was too forced.

The war continued raging, both on land and at sea. Ternate kora-kora fleet capable of making frenzy corvette (small warship) and frigates (warships medium size) Portuguese. Dream of the Portuguese as the sole supplier of commodity spices colonial empire as well as forming part of the movement of glory, gospel, gold (glory, spread religion, and wealth) also buried by the mighty army of Ternate.

Governor Alvaro De Atteyda immediate offer of peace with, but was rebuffed. As a result, full of war for five years running (1570-1575). During that same spirit of jihad army was always able kindled SB Ternate. Real victory has begun to appear, being Portuguese more helpless. Defeat barrage, attacked by the disease, food shortages, and the help that never arrived, making the Portuguese increasingly lethargic and weak. SB led the war according to the original pattern of the empire in which Tomagola responsible for the area of  Ambon-Ceram. Toraitu responsible for the kep Sula, Bacan, Luwuk, Banggai, and Buton. Jougugu Dorure and Sultan Jailolo including the coordinator of the destruction in Halmahera and Sulawesi.

Dated December 24, 1575 with a heavy heart, Governor Nuno Pereira de Lacerda raise the white flag of surrender totally to the SB, and presented the town and fortress of Santo Paulo, or the city of Mon Del Rosario Hourra known cruel. Portuguese people flocked out of the city dwellers, in rhythm with the chanting of the Holy Mass on Christmas Eve full of emotion with tears of separation.

Witnessing this, the army Ternate be a gentleman. The Portuguese were allowed to bring their belongings except arms and armaments. The enemies of Islam continue to be killed soldiers gripped by fear of jihad Sultanate of Ternate, was treated like a brother. Once stripped of their weapons, they dintar to the ship to leave the waters of Maluku. They were brought to Manila to join the Spanish and partly to East Timor.

Caliph of the Islamic Empire in the archipelago SB is very uphold Islamic values. Many royal princes yaang end up feeling disappointed with the action SB. For the enemies of Islam who murdered his father SB actually treated well. When many who questioned it, SB gave the word, "O joumbala (the people), know that Islam does not allow a Muslim to take advantage because of the weakness his enemies in the war on the battlefield."

Testimony SB speech that makes the Catholic Portuguese captives increasingly touched by the attitude of religious tolerance is practiced SB. This reflects the attitude of a warrior leader. Like the Caliph Al-Ayyubid Saladin during the Crusades (1187-1193), SB freeing prisoners who can not afford to pay the ransom, as well as prisoners who have mourning his wife.


Power of the Portuguese has been disabled without exception. Proclaimed the victory of the Muslims shouted Ternate, echoed everywhere, calling on God's majesty asthma: Allahu Akbar ... Allahu Akbar!

And this is what poetry is always sung Ternate jihad army in order to bring unity to drive out the Portuguese colonizers:

Moro-moro as my old gise
No ma buluke kakoro siwange
The ma wange sosiru
Jo sara Mapolo sekore noodles
This formoni Bismillah!

(If the call of jihad has been announced wajiblah forwarded to the people, In the sun rises and the people in the sun in, unite with the people in the south wind, And the people of the north wind, rise up to fight. With the intention Bismillah!)

Caliph of Islam Nusantara Empire

SB victory in the war led the `break 'from the Portuguese archipelago widely regarded as a milestone victory for Islam in the archipelago. Ternate Sultanate having a glorious, free from the influence of Portuguese and Spanish. Activity was so intense propaganda carried to all corners of the country. Nusa Tenggara Islands become the most crowded field mission personnel envoy SB preachers. With charisma as a leader, SB has been reliably demonstrated prowess as a coordinator of various different tribes genealogical roots. That's why he was recognized and confirmed as a "caliphate the Islamic Empire" by the Assembly Session of the Kings allied with Ternate in Makassar, the center of the kingdom of Gowa.

As the Caliph of Islam Nusantara 72 ruling the country, putting SB 6 Sangaji in Nusa Tenggara, namely: Sangaji Solor, Sangaji Lawayong (NTT), Sangaji Lamahara, Sangaji Kore (NTB and Bali), Sangaji Mena, and Sangaji Dili (East Timor). On the island of Java, there are 4: Sangaji Lor, Sangaji Kidul, Sangaji Wetan, and Sangaji Kulon. There Sangaji Palembang in Sumatra. While in New Guinea there are five, namely: Sangaji Raja Ampat (Kolano Fat), Papua Sangaji Gamsio (Sorong), Sangaji Mafor (Biak), Sangaji Soaraha (Jayapura), and Sangaji Mariekku (Merauke). In Sulawesi, Makassar was placed in the kingdom of Goa, Bone, Buton Raha, Gorontalo, Sangir, Minahasa, Luwu, Banggai, and Selayar. There is the kingdom of Sabah in Borneo, Brunei, Sarawak, and Kutai. Similarly in the Philippines, there are in the kingdom Mangindano, Zulu-Zamboango. While there own in the Maluku islands Sangaji Seram, Ambon, Sula, Maba, Pattani, Gebe, and others. Even to the Micronesian island near the Marshall Islands Mariana, there Sangaji Gamrangi. Similarly, in Polynesia and Melanesia. Territory so vast, so many who call that Ternate the SB can be used as a model Islamic state in the archipelago.

Great Islamic empire that continues to persist until the SB offspring. His son, Sayeed Barakadli (Sayiyudin), substitute SB, capable of maintaining the existence of Ternate as a great nation. His grandson, Sultan Zainal Abidin, representing the empire of Ternate in the establishment of Aceh-Demak Alliance-Ternate (Triple Alliance). Caliph of Islam Nusantara Empire SB, died on 18 Ramadan 991 H or May 25, 1583 at the age of 53 years. Dodora grief (anguish) struck the earth Ternate, perhaps similar to the current situation when the area was kept raging.
