This work is a major contribution not only to our knowledge of the Malays as Muslims but to our knowledge of how a society can contain and assimilate apparently contradictory systems.

Preface

Hard cover, 444 pages, this work is a major contribution not only to our knowledge of the Malays as Muslims but to our knowledge of how a society can contain and assimilate apparently contradictory systems.  The Malay converted to Islam, but through that Islamic Law which was first spoken in ‘Arabic to an ‘Arab people, he reasserted his Malay self, and gave to that distinct self a legal recognition of right under the term Malay Adat or Malay Customary Law. Thus what is Islamic Law in Malaya, is in fact a ‘Malayized’ Islamic Law. Indeed to approach Islam in Malaya from a ‘pure’ Islamic point of view, would be to attack not one, but many, elements of what constitutes this distinctly Malay Folk Culture.
