HH Sayyid Sheikh, Majid bin Hamoud Al-Said
His Highness Sayyid Sheikh, Majid bin Ham0ud (Arabic: مَجيد بن حَمود السعَيد) (alternative spelling: Majid bin Hamud al-Said) was the son of HH Sultan, Hamoud bin Muhammad Al-Said, Sultan of Zanzibar under the Omani Empire.
HH Sultan, Hamoud bin Muhammad Al-Said, (1853 – 18 July 1902) (ruled 27 August 1896 – 18 July 1902) (Arabic: حمود بن محمد) was the Omani sultan of the protectorate of Zanzibar, who outlawed slavery throughout the Omani Empire.
HH Sayyid Sheikh. Majid bin Hamoud bin Muhammad bin Said bin Sultan bin Ahmed bin Said Al-Said
7th Generation Royal from the House of Al-Said Dynasty, who ruled large parts of South Asia, The Middle-East and East Africa at their peak. Today they rule the Sultanate of Oman in the Middle-East.
Majid lived an extremely private life with very little known about his wives and children.
All that is revealed is that he had two wives, (although it is not clear if this was consecutively or concurrently) and that he had eleven children, some of which migrated from the Omani Empire to the Ottoman Empire for marriage.
One of his sons, HH Sayyid Sahibzada Sheikh Sanjay-Bey Mir, Aladdin bin Majid Al-Said, half brother to HH Sayyid, Mansoor bin Majid Al-Said, was awarded command of his own Sanjak within the Ottoman Empire. Taking both Ottoman and Pashtun wives, HH Sayyid, Aladdin bin Majid maintained authority over the same land after the dissolving of the Ottoman Empire.

Since you’re here …
… we have a small favour to ask. More people are using TUKI Encyclopaedia as a reliable reference than ever but advertising revenues across the global media industry are falling fast. And unlike many organisations, we haven’t put up a total paywall. We want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. TUKI Encyclopedia takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe truly ethical media, education and an unbias perspective really matters.
“I appreciate there not being a paywall: it is more democratic for the media to be available for all and not a commodity to be purchased by a few. I’m happy to make a contribution so others with less means still have access to information.”
If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, the future of ethical media and the futures of our staff and their families would be much more secure. For as little as £1, you can support TUKI Encyclopedia and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
