All these works are translations from the Arabic into Malay, more literal than those of ʿAbd al-Ṣamad al-Palimbānī [ q.v.]. They aim at a public not learned enough to read Arabic fluently, but familiar, to a certain degree, with the structure of the language. His earliest d…

In earlier times the province (or at least the sphere of political sovereignty) of Atjèh extended much farther towards the south. A considerable part of both the east and west coasts…

according to the Muslim conception bodies ( ad̲j̲sām ) composed of vapour or flame, ¶ intelligent, imperceptible to our senses, capable of appearing under different forms and of carrying out heavy labours (al-Bayḍāwī, Comm. to Ḳurʾān, LXXII, 1; al-Damīrī, Ḥayawān , s.v. d̲j̲inn ).

They are capable of salvation; Muḥammad was sent to them as well as to mankind…
