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".

The ruins of Pengkalan Bujang

OK... Continuing from the story of Bujang Valley. While at the museum there, a staff mentioned how there were some excavation works in progress at Pengkalan Bujang some 6km away. Thank God, seeing how interested I was with all this, he offered to take me there after completing some stuff. So there I was in Pengkalan Bujang... The time was about 2pm or so, the date 18th January 2007...

From outside, I could see this building...

I went inside. The building houses some ruins from the area, believed to have been built in the 6th century of so, that is if my memory serves me right...

The same building also houses a simple museum... Again, if memory serves me right, there are ruins believed to date from as early as 2nd Century AD here, the earliest in Kedah, perhaps the earliest in the whole of Malaysia!

There... Reminds me of the pictures of the Mojehandero-Harrappa city ruins of India said to be 4,000 to 5,000 years old, pictures I've seen in my secondary school history books!

Another part of the ruin...

That's when I saw there's some excavation works in progress...

Some university students (can't remember which university) trying to look for gold?

There... How many holes must you dig before you hit jackpot, hehe! :]

One last look at the ruins of Pengkalan Bujang before the travel continues... One thing I felt during these whole archeological forays (including the ones at Bujang Valley), history is about to be rewritten here but not by you guys... The academic methods in uncovering history through archeological methods have been set by a world standard devised by Jewish elite thinkers under the Protocols of the Elders of Zions which intends to subvert every accepted knowledge to their cause... That is the eventual subjugation of the world to the Zionist Jews. So there's no way they would allow the real truth to surface as the truth would set us free while they don't want us to be free.

You might ask, what truth I'm talking here. Let me just give you a clue... The truth of Islam... The same universal truth preached by our father, the Prophet Adam during the advent of mankind on earth 6,000 (some believed 40,000 years ago) and the truth brought forth by the Seal of the Prophets, Muhammad SAW, 1,400 years ago...

The offical history books with its Western Orientalist slanted views try to teach you, the original faith in the Malay lands were Hindu... Islam only came later to 'disturb and force' the original populace to either accept it or run elsewhere for their lives... And so the ruins such as that in Pengkalan Bujang are said to be proofs of this, that Hindu was the dominant and original religion here.

Well, let me just say this... I'm too tired and exhausted to explain right now... I still got a few places to go while in Teluk Intan, Perak (that is where I am the last 2 days on my current travel) and it feels like there's certain forces which don't want me to succesfully complete what I intend to do... Really I feel very sick and the body too weak but I continue holding myself up in dignity including to complete the stories I should release at any particular time in my blogspots. Suffice to say the theories about Hindu being the original religion in the Malay lands are all blatant lies to reduce the the beauty of Islam as completed by Prophet Muhammad to just a 'foreign' religion supposedly preying on the weakness and gullibility of the populace.

By the way, the original religion has always been Islam through and through but the physical practices could be different depending on time and place... The Islam of old used to be under the code of Prophet of Abraham before the code or syariat of Muhammad came. But pervertion of the original religion which lead to idol worship is what prompted the British colonialists to coin the term Hindu... For a group of religions practice in Hindi (now India)...

As far as I know and believe, ruins such as the ones in Pengkalan Bujang was actually Islamic ruins but of Islam under the code of Abraham. But the British colonialiasts, spurred on by Zionist thinkers went to the extend of planting bronze idols at selected site as 'evidence' that the Malay lands were originally populated by Hindus... Enough!
