Islamic thought in the Philippines has existed before the coming of Spaniards and has a very strong impact; very few studies have been conducted on individuals who have contributed to the Islamic thought in the Philippines. The tendency of giving priority to well-known Muslim scholars predominates over those works remain hidden and explored.

He has greatly contributed to the sociopolitical and educational reform, diplomatic relations, increasing international trades with Muslim countries, and intra-religious discourses in the academia.
