The Islamic civilization created great minds like Ibn Khaldun, Imam al-Ghazali, Imam Shafie and many more. In Malaysia where Islam is the integral part of the federation and its people, the rise of its very own exemplary minds was only natural. Scholars like Idris al-Marbawi, Sheikh Daud al-Fatani To Kenali, Haji Ahmad Badawi, Ahmad Ibrahim, Sheikh Mustafa, Dr. Burhanuddin al-Helmy, Pendeta Zaaba, Yusoff Zaky and others greatly influenced the Muslim minds in the country. Another of Malaysia’s prominent Muslim was its father of independence Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra al-Haj who played a pivotal role in uniting the ummah at the global platform. Though they may not be with us anymore, the legacy that they left us is still very much alive. Muslims in Malaya and later Malaysia greatly benefited from their contributions. The book gives an overview of the role played by great minds from Tanah Jawi in enriching the Ummah’s knowledge in Islam. This book also touches on the workings of their minds, the way they disseminated their thoughts be it in politics or education and their writings. The all had one thing in common, to help fellow Muslims to dwell deeper into Islam and unite the ummah through their works and thoughts. It is hoped that this book would help the readers to appreciate the contributions of Malaysia’s Exemplary Muslims.
