R.H. Prince Raphael is his grandson.
Furthermore H.S.H.´s father H.R.H. Sultan Masood pays tribute to his father´s legacy as de facto most influential Barakzai royal today.
His Royal Highness is strongly networked internationally in various royal families and political sectors, having the highest reputation as Afghan Barakzai Royal.
His Royal Highness is as descendant of Hazrat Ishaan 54th hereditary Imam and thus successor of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) of Naqshbandi Sunni Islam, which is the traditional branch of Islam the Afghans follow.
The Tajiks and Pashtuns make up the majority of Afghanistan. His Serene Highness belongs to both groups (Pashtun affiliated father and Tajik affiliated mother) and thus generates an equillibirum of interest with his rank as Imam of Prophet Muhammad´s family (pbuh) as crown jewel.
