Haji Mohammed Saleh (9)

Was Nakhoda Nan Intan a Sufi?

Someone wrote on 18 May 2016 to ask how Nakhoda Nan Intan and Haji Abdul Latiff Tambi were related.

I wrote at my blog in March 2016 that Nakhoda Nan Intan was the grandfather of Haji Abdul Latiff Tambi who was an Islamic scholar from Tengkera, Malacca.

His full namestring is Haji Abdul Latiff bin Haji Nuruddin ((@ Tambi) bin Haji Mohamed Salleh Al Malakawi (@ Nakhoda Nan Intan).

Al Malakawi in Arabic indicates that the person was from Malacca.

Haji Abdul Latiff bin Haji Thamby is said to be of Indian descent while Nakhoda Nan Intan is from Indonesia.

The tombstone dated 1333 AH indicated Al Makawi (which is a surname from the Middle East). The tombstone may not be that of Nakhoda Nan Intan.


Nakhoda Nan Intan was a Sufi.

Do you know which Tariqat order he practiced?

Q. Is there any info on how Haji Abdul Latiff is related to Nakhoda Nan Intan who was buried in Batu Uban Mosque in Penang?

Nakhoda Nan Intan's downline in Malacca


Someone wrote on 18 March 2015 to ask about how Nakhoda Nan Intan and Haji Abdul Latiff Tambi were related.


Q. How is Nahkoda Nan Intan related to Haji Abdul Latiff Tambi from Tengkera, Malacca?

There are gaps in the family tree and I could not quite answer his question.


Old pic of Masjid Tengkera from Bapak's pendrive


Coloured photos of Masjid Tengkera from Noraini Ismail, MGHS 1972-73

It turns out that Nakhoda nan Intan made his masjid at Tranquerah (Masjid Tengkera) and not at Banda Hilir.

Masjid Banda Hilir was built much later in 1820, by an Indonesian Imam Shahbuddin, who was probably from Cirebon, Java in Indonesia.

Masjid Tengkera had a large Chinese Muslim population, including the wife of my great-great-grandfather Ismail bin Khatib Yusof. His wife was Inche Nyonya bt Imam Shahbuddin (probably a Chinese Muslim from China).

Masjid Kg Keling has a large Indian Muslim population, including the descendants of Munshi Abdullah bin Abdul Kadir. Muzium Melaka called to ask why there was a large Indian Muslim population connected to Masjid Kg Keling.

I haven't got the complete family tree for the descendants of my great-granduncle Hj Nordin bin Hj Ismail. I think Hj Abdul Latiff Tambi (Tengkera) that he alluded to could be related to Hj Nordin bin Hj Ismail, and therefore to Nakhoda nan Intan.

Nakhoda nan Intan married 3 wives - in Penang, Malacca and Singapore.

His people from Malacca are descended from his marriage to the Malacca wife. I don't have her name. There were 4 men from 4 generations before Khatib Yusof. I don't have the names of the 4 men and their wives. My father told me that the names were re-cycled.

All the 8 men descended from Nakhoda nan Intan who died at Banda Hilir house were laid to rest at Kubor Semabok. There are some ancient graves at Masjid Kg Keling but I haven't visited the graveyard to find out.

[According to Maheran Ahmad, her ascendants were Nakhoda's descendants and are buried at a makam at Masjid Tengkera. She has access to the makam at Masjid Tengkera.]

Nakhoda nan Intan died in Penang and is laid to rest at his masjid, Masjid Jamek Batu Uban, which he built in 1734.

Nakhoda nan Intan was a close friend of Habib Noh Alhabshi of Singapore. Habib Noh's makam is on top of the hill. Masjid Muhammad Salleh @ Nakhoda nan Intan is at the foothill. But the masjid was not built by Nakhoda nan Intan. It was built much later.

Lagu Minangkabau

The people of Negeri Sembilan (N9) in Malaysia and the Minangkabau people of West Sumatra are of the same stock and they speak the same language - Bahasa Minang. Ayam Den Lapeh is a Minang feature song and immediately listeners can easily identify at as either a N9 or Minang song. It is a great song, but I don't have the lyrics off-hand nor do I understand much of the song.
