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".

Prophet Adam and the Malays 60,000 Years Ago : Alignment of Time, Revealed Knowledge and Science

Peace be upon you. Five months ago I was asked to give a lecture at ISTAC (International Institute of Islamic Thought and Malay World), Kuala Lumpur regarding a time aligment calculation method I've made to reconcile history of mankind based on science to that based on revealed knowledge such as from the holy Al-Quran. The calculation and its implications have been explained and extended in my 11th book "Nabi Adam dan Orang Melayu 60,000 Tahun Lalu" and my 12th, "Benua Tua Melayu Sumber Peradaban Dunia", both officially published in March 2018.  While the books were written in Malay the lecture which used extracts from the books were conducted in English. Supporting it is a paperwork made in English which practically comprise selected translations from the books. 

Look at the article Syarahan "Prophet Adam and the Malays 60,000 Years Ago - Aligment of Time, Revealed Knowledge and Science" di ISTAC in the blogspot CATATAN SI MERAH SILU to follow the lecture. PdF file of the paperwork have since been uploaded to an academic journal website for public consumption. But I soon found it is not as accessible as I wanted it to be.  The website seems to put certain conditions before the uploaded file could be accessed. 

In the original spirit of spreading the 'gospel' I've decided to convert the PdF to Jpg picture files. That way I could upload it to this blogspot making it accessible to all without any condition. Feel free to read and study it. Feel free to take extracts for your own writing and research. Just please do the honorable thing by giving due mention and citation.
