Sultan Ismail Petra ibni Almarhum Sultan Yahya Petra (11 November 1949 – 28 September 2019) was the Sultan of Kelantan, Malaysia from 30 March 1979 until 13 September 2010. His father was Sultan Yahya Petra and his mother was Tengku Zainab. He was succeeded by his son, Tengku Muhammad Faris Petra as Sultan Muhammad V.

Early life[edit]

Sultan Ismail Petra was the first son of Sultan Yahya Petra and Raja Perempuan Zainab II. He was the youngest child among five siblings. Sultan Ismail Petra early education was at Sultan Ismail College, Kota Bharu and later on through special teacher at the Royal Palace.

Marriage and children[edit]

Sultan Ismail Petra married Raja Perempuan Kelantan Tengku Anis binti Tengku Abdul Hamid in 1968 until his death in 2019. The royal couple had four children:

Sultan Ismail Petra also had a second wife, Cik Puan Elia Suhana binti Ahmad, whom he married on 23 December 2007.[1]

It was reported that the Sultan of Kelantan, Sultan Ismail Petra, filed an application for verification of his divorce from his second wife, Che Puan Elia Suhana Ahmad, at the Syariah High Court on 9 March 2010.

Subsequently, the Chief registrar of Syariah Appellate/High court, Abu Bakar Abdullah Kutty, clarified that the Sultan of Kelantan Sultan Ismail Petra ibni Sultan Yahya Petra did not file a divorce suit against his second wife Elia Suhana Ahmad. Instead, Abu Bakar Abdullah Kutty said an unknown individual by the name of Nik Rorhana Wan Abdul Rahman was named as the plaintiff in the divorce petition.

“I want to clarify that the Sultan did not file the writ but instead it was filed on his behalf". “Based on Syariah law we have accepted the suit and it will be up to the court to decide on the matter". “I have to make things clear as it was reported in the media that the Sultan had filed the writ personally which is totally incorrect,” he told reporters at his office at Balai Islam, Lundang.

Since his stroke on 14 May 2009, there were major concerns over his ability to continue serving as Sultan. After several trips to seek medical treatment in Singapore, eventually, Ismail Petra was succeeded by his son, Crown Prince Muhammad Faris Petra on 13 September 2010 by order of the Kelantan Succession Council.[2] However, lawyers acting on behalf of Ismail Petra filed a petition to the Federal Court to have the appointment of the Crown Prince as the Sultan of Kelantan nullified, citing the appointment as unconstitutional.[3]

Death[edit]

Sultan Ismail Petra died on 28 September 2019 at 8:11 am at the Royal Ward Raja Perempuan Zainab II Hospital, Kota Bharu aged 69. He was laid to rest next to grave of his late father, Sultan Yahya Petra at the Langgar Royal Mausoleum in Kota Bharu, Kelantan.[4]
