Muhammad Dipatuan Kudarat or Sultan Kudarat was a Maguindanao native who fought fervently against Spanish conquistadors who attempted to conquer his kingdom. A direct descendant of the Muslim missionary Shariff Kabungsuwan who brought the religion to the islands between the 13th and 14th century, Sultan Kudarat was the main force that hindered the Christianization of Mindanao.
