HAMKA WAS A GREAT SON OF THE MALAY WORLD whose works have left a huge impact not only in his homeland Indonesia but also throughout the other parts of the 2vlalay world-Malaysia, Brunei, Singapore, Pattani and Champa. He was one of the greatest dins in the :,vlalay world. He is well knovm for Malay and Islamic literature, creative writing, culture, politics and philosophy. He lived in the era of colonialism and the struggle to be freed from its clutches. Thus, it was a period of resistance to the colonial master by the indigenous through several movements to strive for independence. At the same time this was a period of westernisation. The Malays were having a crisis of empowering their race, revitalising their identity and rebuilding their civilization.· It was in this context that Hamka, a Nlalay scholar, devoted his attention to these issues. He attempted to define the problems in relationship to Islam and the Malays. He left a large collection of works covering philosophy, mysticism, Islam, tafsir and literary novels
