How did Islam came to Malaysia?

Assalamualaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh,

Bismilallahirrahmanirrahim,

My dear respected brothers and sisters…

I could still remember in my “Sejarah tingkatan 5″(History textbook) where we all would memorize the answer for the question: “Nyatakan cara-cara kedatangan Islam ke Tanah Melayu”

The answer as explained in the textbook and elaborated by my history teacher is that Islam came to Nusantara(@Malaysia) by muslim merchants from Arabs, India(The Moghul Empire), and China. As they came to Nusantara to trade goods from their country, they would also bring along scholars(ulama) to teach the merchants and also the local people where they traded.

Waaa, the mechant 🙂 🙂 :-), these merchant had contributed so many to Islam. Due to their efforts, Islam had came into the hearts of millions of people in this Nusantara. Nowadays, the highest number of muslims comes from Nusantara(Malaysia, Indonesia, Brunei Darussalam, Thailand, and Filiphine) which is almost 200 million people. The prophet(salallahua’laihiwassalam) had once said to Muadz bin Jabal while he was about to travel to spead the religion of Islam, “that if one person turn to Islam due to your effort, it is better for you than this world and it contents”.

Wait, wait…

Islam was spread in Nusantara by muslim merchants activities???

No. Thats not the correct explanation.

Ansarullah 🙂

Islam was spread to Nusantara by da’wah

The da’i(muslim preacher) was the one who had spread Islam(with the grace and mercy of Allah SWT). And trading was the work that they did to support the expenses of traveling and spreading Islam to everyone in this world. When the Arabs first embraced Islam, it is their obligation to spread the religion to everyone in this world of all races, tribes, and nations.

And consequently, by the activity of trading, importing and exporting, the muslims had become a powerful economic power in the world in the 10th to 14th century.

Earth

Insyallah, for Islam to once again save this world, we all should be more active in helping da’wah and spreading Islam.

Wallahua’lam 🙂
