MNLF is internationally recognized by the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) and its Parliamentary Union of OIC Member States (PUIC).[9] Since 1977, the MNLF has been an observer member of the OIC.[10] On January 30, 2012, MNLF became an observer member of the Parliamentary Union of Islamic Cooperation (PUIC), as approved during the 7th PUIC global session held in PalembangIndonesia.[11]

The Sulu Genealogy clearly states that the sultanate was established after the missionary activities of a certain Karim ul-Makhdum, followed a few years by the arrival of Rajah Baguinda who was accompanied by courtiers who were presumably Muslims. Judging by their names, most of the Sulu chiefs and leaders who were to accept Rajah Baguinda as their ruler must have been Muslims. In brief, the establishment of the sultanate was based on the consent given to it by a generally Islamized people. Thus when the “tarsila” says that the first Sultan “established a religion for Sulu” and that the people accepted the new religion and declared their faith in it,” it only means that their political structure was now based on Islam and not that the first Sultan originally introduced the faith.
