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".

A better look of the mosque of Tokku Paloh

Peace be upon you all. The article The Batik cottage industry at village of Tok Panjang made 26 days ago is actually the last posting for the 8th day of the travel to the East Coast made for this blogspot. Now comes postings for the 9th day...

Sunday 2nd January 2011. After spending the night at this mosque its time to take pictures.

This is the mosque of Tok Ku Paloh in Kuala Terengganu. After spending some time around Kota Bahru, Kelantan the previous day we left for Terengganu in the evening.

Now I have been to the mosque many many times and have spent a few nights here.

But this is the first time I brought the wife and our baby to spend the night.

Despite the fact I've been here many many times it seems I haven't got much picture of the mosque.

Maybe I've taken it for granted. So in this visit I made a point to take many pictures.

There. I even had a good look at the pail used to draw water out of the well.

The pail is supported by a lever system.

Back to the mosque.

The tower...

Going inside.

Praying hall.

Mihrab, the front-most section.

Yes. In fact before that we slept at Masjid Tok Kenali with our two older kids and another mosque near Kuala Besar, Kota Bahru, mouth of Sungai Kelantan.
