Defining the history of the Middle East

Due to the political tensions during the Cold war, Sayyid Raphael´s family fled from their motherland Afghanistan and migrated to Europe, acting as Global technocrats today. 

They have adopted the new surname "Dakik" which means subtle in light of their subtle bloodline to Prophet Muhammad (pbuh).

They are still regarded as Royals as an act of courtesy, honoring their background and current acts of Excellence for mankind.
