Sayyida Moza bint Ahmed bin Saeed Al Busaidi: A Military-Political Figure Who Shaped Oman’s History Sayyida Moza bint Ahmed bin Saeed Al Busaidi was born in Rustaq in 1749 AD. She grew up in the house of her father, Imam Ahmed bin Saeed, who taught her about political affairs, preparing her to become a prominent political figure in Oman’s history. Sayyida Moza’s most significant contribution to Oman’s history was preparing her nephew, Sayyid Saeed bin Sultan, for the throne. Sayyid Saeed ruled Oman and Zanzibar between the years of 1806 and 1856 AD. Sayyida Moza faced her first significant challenge when her brothers besieged Muscat. She responded with courage and skill, summoning her nephew Badr bin Saif to help her confront the situation. After the siege, Sayyida Moza became the regent of the throne, organizing and managing the country until Sayyid Saeed bin Sultan was seventeen years old. He then took over the reins of government from her. Sayyida Moza continued to support Sayyid Saeed in government affairs until she passed away in 1832 AD. Sayyida Moza’s role in shaping Oman’s history as a military-political figure cannot be overstated. She contributed compellingly to preparing the rule for her nephew, and her legacy lives on to this day.
