Pantun (which is different from couplet, quartet in English literature) is a form of literary expression among the Malays and the Malaysians, which has migrated from oral to written forms and survives until today. Its practical value makes people write and recite it duringfestivals and formal events. It is included in the curriculum of Malay language and literature in the public schools in Malaysia. This Chapter presents select pantuns on ―budi‖ and presents its analysis on the ubiquitous ―pisang emas‖ (golden banana) pantun from ―budi‖ perspective. Two aspects of the unique pantun, i.e., ―hutang‖ and ―budi‖ were scrutinized from an Islamic perspective. The spirit of ―budi‖ permeates pantun and carries with it wisdom
