This blogspot is a medium to share my thoughts and adventures apart from promoting my books. Below are the books which have been written or authored and published by myself.

"Berpetualang ke Aceh: Mencari Diri dan Erti".

ISBN 983-42031-0-1, Jun 2006

"Berpetualang ke Aceh: Membela Syiar yang Asal"

ISBN 983-42031-1-x, May 2007

"Berpetualang ke Aceh: Sirih Pulang ke Gagang?"

ISBN 978-983-42031-2-2, November 2007

It is interesting to note that while these books were written in Malay it has gained enough attention to merit being part of the collections of the American Library of Congress and National Library of Australia. Look here and here.

While the first three books were published by my own company, the fourth titled "Rumah Azan" was published in April 2009 by a company called Karnadya with the help of the Malaysian national literary body Dewan Bahasa dan Pustaka. It features beautiful pictures along with stories behind selected mosques which could be related to the history of Islam and the Malays alongside the formation of the Malaysian nation. Look at the article A collaboration of old collegemates - the book "Rumah Azan".

My fifth book "Ahlul Bait (Family) of Rasulullah SAW and Malay Sultanates", an English translation and adaptation of the Malay book "Ahlul Bait (Keluarga) Rasulullah SAW dan Kesultanan Melayu" authored by Hj Muzaffar Mohamad and Tun Suzana Othman was published early 2010. Look here... My 5th book is out! Ahlul Bait (Family) of Rasulullah SAW and the Malay Sultanates... . For more information check out my Malay blogspot CATATAN SI MERAH SILU.

Like my fourth book "Rumah Azan", the sixth book "Kereta Api Menuju Destinasi" is also a coffee-table book which is published by the company Karnadya with the cooperation of Dewan Bahasa dan Pustaka (the main Malay literary body in Malaysia). Coming out January 2011 it features pictures and stories on the adventure travelling by train to all of Peninsular Malaysia along with the interesting places which could be reached this way.

My seventh book "Jejak keluarga Yakin : Satu sketsa sejarah" in turn is a coffee-table book which is written, editted, designed and has pictures taken by me. Coming out of the factory October 2011, this book which combines family history with history of places such as Singapura, Johor, Batu Pahat, Muar and in fact the history of the island of Java and England has been reviewed with me interviewed live in the program Selamat Pagi Malaysia at RTM1. Look at the article Siaran langsung ulasan buku "Jejak keluarga Yakin : Satu sketsa sejarah" dan temu ramah di Selamat Pagi Malaysia. Some selected contents have been featured in Sneak peek "Jejak keluarga Yakin : Satu sketsa sejarah".

Latest visit to the tomb of Habib Nuh

Continued from On to Tanjung Pagar.


The first place we went to after getting out of Tanjung Pagar station is the tomb of Habib Nuh.


Located at a walking distance from the station, the tomb is well-known among Malays and Muslims of Singapura and Malaysia as it belongs to a saintly person said to be feared and well-respected by the British who used to colonised the island.



This is a prime location at the fringe of Singapura city centre. Because of that the present mainly Chinese government once tried to move it to make way for a highway. Instead they came into all sorts of unexplained troubles and had to curve the highway instead.


Anyway this is the tomb of Habib Nuh the saintly person who is a descendant of Prophet Muhammad SAW.



At the lower ground besides it lies a mosque where we did our prayers. For the record this trip was made with my wife, baby Al-Rasyid and a cousin...

Salam pada saudara,

Saya 2-in-1, komen utk blog Habib Noh & Masjid Sultan Singapura...

Saya ini baru berjinak2 ingin mengetahui tentang sejarah2 lama, tak kira di Singapura atau M'sia dll, jadi ilmu saya tak lah seberapa.

Saya hanya ingin beri maklumat atau infomasi utk saudara kerana saudara rajin menjelajah dan mencari sejarah.

Selain Habib Noh & Radin Mas, Singapura ini dahulu kala penuh
dgn makam2 solehin, boleh nak dikatakan ada sekitar 100. Tetapi sayang, negeri ini terlalu pesat membangun dan kebanyakkan makam2 ini telah dipindahkan ataupn dugodam ataupn hilang dll, wallahualam.

Saya difahamkan di tengah2 rimba Bt Timah ada sebuah makam, yg kononnya milik salah seorang keluarga Sunan 9, tetapi saya sendiri tak tau dimana tempatnya yg tepat. Mungkin saudara ingin
explore?

Di Masjid Sultan juga ada beberapa
buah makam Raja2 Johor-Riau Lingga,
untuk pengetahuan saudara. Selain itu, agak2 500m perjalanan dari masjid Sultan terdapat kubur lama, juga dikatakan milik Johor, di situ juga ada beberapa buah makam.

Wassalam. Terima kasih atas maklumat. Saya pernah diberitahu tentang kewujudan banyak makam lama termasuk milik kerabat diraja kerajaan Melayu selain Johor-Riau-Lingga. Tapi memang saya tak tahu lokasi. Tentang makam2 di Masjid Sultan tu dalam bangunan masjid yang pintunya boleh kelihatan di hadapan kan? Apapun saya ni berjalan2 ikut apa yang dapat. Insyaallah kalau dipermudahkan saya akan sampai ke makam2 lain nanti.

Salam saudara,

Benar di Masjid Sultan makam2nya berada di hadapan masjid, ada 4 buah. Salah satu milik arwah Sultan Abdul Jalil Bin Sultan Hussein Shah.

Di Pusara Abadi (lama) juga ada sebuah makam Daeng Abdullah Bin Daeng Marewah (pindah dari Pulau Sudong.) Kalau tk silap ada kaitan dgn '5 Bugis' yg berkahwin dgn kerabat2 Johor Lama dulu. Di sini juga ada makam Tengku Long Puteh, Sultan Siak suatu masa dulu.

Di Pulau Kusu ada makam Syed Abdul Rahman, yg dikatakan ada kaitan dgn
makam Habib Noh.

Saya rasa ada bnyk lagi..tapi sayang sejarah di sini bnyk dah hilang. Mungkin juga ada lagi yg masih belum diketahui...

Wallahu'alam...
