Shariff Muhammed Kabungsuwan[1] (Malay: Muhammad Kebungsuwan, Jawi: شريف کبوڠسووان) was the first Sultan of Maguindanao in the Philippines. A native of Johore in Maritime Southeast Asia, Kabungsuwan re-settled in Mindanao in the Philippines where he preached Islam to the native tribes around the region.[2][3]

Kabungsuwan invaded Malabang, Cotabato, facing armed resistance from the non-Muslim natives, nevertheless successfully vanquishing and subjugating them to his (Islamic) rule through the might of his Samal warriors.[4]

Kabungsuwan was of Arab-Malay ethnicity. He married a local princess and established the Sultanate of Maguindanao in the 16th century.[2] The sultanate was usually centered in the valley of Cotabato.

The former province of Shariff Kabunsuan in the Philippines was named after him.
