Muḥammad ʿAlī was also either the brother or close relative of the last ʿAfrārī sultan, ʿĪsā, who fled to exile in Saudi Arabia after the 1967 revolution.
Muḥammad ʿAlī is remembered as a prolific poet in Arabic and Mahri, an important criterion for holding political office on the Arabian Peninsula where poetry goes hand in hand with political discourse.
