This is a seriously neglected field of research in Islam. In the context of the Philippines the grievances of the Muslims go beyond the religious arena.
At bottom, the Muslim resistance against Spain in the Philippines was not an isolated or insignificant phenomenon but an essential part of the general resistance of all Muslim peoples in Malaysia against Western Imperialism, colonialism, and Christianity. In an important sense, the sultanates were articulations of a wider social entity, the Islamic society in the Malaysian world. It is within this context that the history of Moro Wars should be seen to be better understood.
