CALCULATING WHEN HIS CLOSE FRIEND LIVED

Haji Ahmad bin Haji Abdul Rauf (circa 1860s-1928; died 68 years old; asal Pernu/Imam Masjid Semabok) was the eldest of 3 friends. He was 10 years senior compared to his 2 close friends who were of similar age. The 3 were imams of 3 masjid at 3 different locations in British Malacca. His 2 junior friends were:
  1. Haji Mohd Sharif bin Ismail (asal Banda Hilir)
  2. Haji Abdul Latiff bin Haji Nuruddin (asal Tengkera)

Haji Mohd Sharif bin Ismail bin Saleh bin Khatib Yusuf
Imam Masjid Banda Hilir, Melaka
  • (Tok moyang) Haji Mohd Sharif (asal Banda Hilir) was Imam Masjid Banda Hilir). 
  • Ismail (asal Yaman) married Inchek Nyonia bt Sahabudin (asal Tengkera).
  • Haji Mohd Sharif could have lived circa  late 1860s-early 1870s (1872) and died circa 1906-1912. 
  • Haji Mohd Sharif died young. 
  • His eldest son Mohd Yusope bin Haji Mohd Sharif was born on 11 February 1896 and married Nenek Inchek circa April 1920. 
  • Haji Mohd Sharif had 5 children. 
  • If each child was 2 years apart, 5 children would be 10 years. 
  • Haji Mohd Sharif lived/died circa 1896 + 10 years = 1906. 
  • If Mohd Sharif bin Ismail was 25 when he married, he was therefore born in 1870/1871. 
  • So Haji Mohd Sharif possibly lived from 1871 to 1906 (died aged 35 years) or between 1871 and 1912 (died aged 41 years).
  • Haji Mohd Sharif bin Ismail was as old as Haji Abdul Latiff bin Haji Nuruddin.

MAKAM SHAMSUDDIN AL-SUMATARANI

Nama sebenar beliau Syed Shamsudin Ibni Al-Sumatarani. Beliau merupakan seorang ulamak, sasterawan dan pahlawan terbilang di negeri Aceh di zaman pemerintahan Sultan Iskandar Muda.

Setelah Melaka ditakluki oleh Portugis pada tahun 1511, Aceh sering menyerang Portugis di Melaka. Tujuan serangan dilakukan adalah untuk mengembalikan Melaka kepada keadaan asal dan bebas dari jajahan takluk orang Barat dan juga untuk menegekakkan syiar Islam.

Dalam salah satu serangan yang dilakukan oleh Angkatan Tentera Aceh terhadap Portugis di Melaka, Shamsudin Al-Sumatarani telah turut serta. Bersama-sama beliau ialah Panglima-panglima Aceh termasuk Panglima Pidi,

Angkatan tentera Aceh gagal untuk menewaskan Portugis.

Shamsudin Al-Sumatarani dikatakan tidak kembali bersama-sama angkatan perang Aceh.

Beliau dan Panglima Pidi dipercayai telah terkorban.

Jasad Panglima disemadikan di Puncak Gedung (Bukit China) dan dikenali sebagai keramat panjang manakala jasad Shamsudin Al-Sumatarani disemadikan di Kampung Ketik, Melaka.

Munshi Abdullah

Munshi Abdullah bin Abdul Kadir (1796-1850)
An Indian Muslim translator and chronicler who was born in Kg Pali, Malacca. 
Worked in British Malacca. Worked with Stamford Raffles in Singapore.

Full name: Abdullah bin Abdul Kadir
Call name: Munshi Abdullah, Abdullah Munshi
Born: 1796 Kg Pali, Melaka
Deceased: 1854 Jeddah .... while on his way to perform Hajj (aged 54 years)
Burial: Jeddah or Masjid Kg Keling?
Education: Quran, Arabic, Malay and English
Occupation: Translator for the British colonial Government in Malacca and Singapore

Parents
Father: Abdul Kadir
Mother: Unknown
Sibs: All siblings before him died. Only he survived.

Family
Wife: Unknown
Children: Unknown


Munshi Abdullah is Abdullah bin Abdul Kadir. He was born in 1796 in Kampung Pali, Malacca. (In another account, he was born in 1797.)

Kg Pali has been renamed Kg Masjid, and now Kg Ketek. Ketek is the Minang or Malay word for small (kecil) or short (katik or ketek). People here also call this village Kekek. Kekek is a type of fish found in the nearby river, Sg Melaka.

Munshi Abdullah served both in Malacca as well as in Singapore. He worked under Stamford Raffles in British Singapore.

Even though Munshi Abdullah was a learned man, he was regarded as a traitor as he had assisted the British officers to translate British documents into Malay. He had also assisted Christian missionaries to translate the Bible into Malay, knowing very well that the Malays were Muslims.

His house is not far from Masjid Kampung Kling - about 5 minutes walk from the masjid.

FROM PERZIM
(edited)

Abdullah bin Abdul Kadir Munshi digelar sebagai Bapa Kesusasteraan Melayu Moden, berdasarkan beberapa karyanya yang terkenal, iaitu Shair Singapura Terbakar (1830), Kisah Pelayaran Abdullah (1838), Hikayat Abdullah (1849), Dewa-ul-kulub (1883), dan Kisah Pelayaran Abdullah ke Jeddah (1920). [This last book is post-humous as he died in 1850.]

Abdullah dilahirkan pada tahun 1796 di Kampung Pali (sekarang dikenali sebagai Kampung Ketek), Melaka daripada keluarga India Muslim keturunan Arab.

Sejak kecil lagi, "Munshi" memperlihatkan keistimewaannya sebagai pelajar yang bijak dan gigih mencari ilmu.

Beliau mempunyai minat yang mendalam mempelajari pelbagai bahasa selain Bahasa Melayu.

Berdasarkan kebolehannya maka beliau telah dilantik menjadi jurutulis dan penterjemah kepada Thomas Stamford Raflles dan pembesar Inggeris yang lain di Melaka, menyebabkan hubungannya begitu rapat dan mesra dengan British di Melaka dan di Singapura. Hal ini turut mempengaruhi corak dan falsafah pemikirannya.

Abdullah Munshi meninggal dunia di Jeddah pada tahu 1854 dalam perjalanan menunaikan fardhu Haji.

TOK HAJI NOORDIN
- from Mahadhir Mohamad (cicit Hj Noordin)

Tok Haji Noordin was said to have visited a wealthy relative in the area where Munshi Abdullah had lived.

There is no clue as to who was the wealthy relative in Kg Pali. It could be Munshi Abdullah's family or some other family.
