Malacca is a well-known Islamic kingdom. This kingdom reached the golden age in the fifteenth century during the reign of Sultan Manshur Syah. Quoted from the book Daulah Shalihiyyah in Sumatra, Malacca city opened by Sultan Zainal 'Abidin Ra-Ubabdar (conqueror of the waves) as one of the bases of the sultanate of Sumatra (Samudra Pasai). The region is named Mulaqat (place of various meetings) between the west and east.

The tombstone is allegedly belonging to Sultan Manshur Syah. Currently stored at Malaysia State Museum in Kuala Lumpur.


After the opening of the territory, it seems that Zainal 'Abidin Ra-Ubabdar has been domiciled here until Queen Nahrasyiah's death. When he was sovereign over the throne of the sultanate of Sumatra (Samudra Pasai). His son, Manshur, had been assigned to rule in Mulaqat (Malacca).

Half a century later, the Portuguese came to attack this Islamic city. In 1511 the city of Malacca can be ruled by the Portuguese, this autumn marks the end of Islamic rule in the city of Malacca. Then the kingdom of Sumatra also fell into the hands of the Portuguese. At that time, Aceh Darussalam appeared to reclaim the Kingdom that had been controlled by the Portuguese. Under Sultan 'Ali Mughayat Shah, the city of Sumatra is recaptured. Then the expansion was made to the city of Malacca. The city was attacked from various lines by the Kingdom of Aceh, from the time of the sultan 'Ali Mughayat Syah to his grandchildren, the sultan 'Alauddin' Inayat Syah, Sultan 'Ali Ri'ayat Syah, Sultan 'Alauddin Ri'ayat Shah Sayyidil Mukamil during the time of Sultan Iskandar Muda The Portuguese left the city of Malacca in the 17th century.

On the 28th of April, for the first time I stepped foot in this historic city. This is the land where our forefathers have given everything to the ummah. I came here to see firsthand the traces of Malacca's Islamic heritage.

The Portuguese had occupied the city for 140 years, resulting in the heritage of the Malacca Islamic sultanate not being found anymore. which I encountered were the ruins of a Portuguese heritage building. Here are some pictures I took. This image is the excavation result of archaeological research conducted by a Malaysian research team.
