The Malay Archipelago #1 Kecewa dengan Sombongnya "Kesultanan Sulu"


Anda pernah dengar atau tahu istilah  Malay Archipelago?

Saya dan anda semua tentu sangat-sangat kecewa bila  "Kesultanan Sulu"  menyerang Sabah. Seolah-olah  mereka adalah bangsa yang sentiasa hendak bergaduh dan tidak berusaha untuk memajukan bangsa sendiri yang masih jauh ketinggalan.  Rakan Malaysia yang selama ini banyak membantu, diserang pula kerana  habbun-dunia (cinta dunia) dan Islam digunakan untuk justify tindakan. Walaupun tidak semua orang Sulu begitu, melanggar Sabah amat mendukacitakan rakan-rakan Melayu Malay Archipelago Malaysia, Indonesia dan Brunei Darussalam atas apa sekalipun alasan. Ketika saya berada di Indonesia baru-baru ini, kami sama-sama solat hajat dan mendoakan agar ALLAH menyatukan Malay Archipelago dan membuka pintu hati "Kesultanan Sulu" supaya insaf  dan bertaubat kerana menyerang tentera Muslim Malaysia di bumi Malaysia. 

Rasulullah s.a.w menganjurkan musyawarah, mengapa ajaran Rasululah ini dilanggar?  yang hanya menyerlahkan lengok bahasa psikologi -" inferiority complex Kesultanan Sulu" dalam arena politik Islam antarabangsa? 

 Nota:  Saya bukan pakar sejarah. Tulisan ini bersandarkan ilmu saya saya sedikit.

Selepas tamat SPM tahun 1980an, saya berpeluang melanjutkan pelajaran di peringkat persediaan sebelum ke luar Negara (AUSMAT).  Salah satu subjek yang amat saya gemar ialah Malay Studies. Subjek ini bukanlah core-subject  tetapi minat saya meneliti  melebihi core-subject  seperti  business, commerce dan accounting. Subjek ini banyak mengambil masa saya kerana ia memberi  banyak ruang membuat kajian sendiri mengenai  Melayu dan kaitannya dengan Malay Archipelago.

Dua minggu sekali, saya akan pulang ke rumah orangtua. Di rumah, saya berguru pula dengan arwah abah. Bila mengenangkan arwah abah, setiap kali itulah airmata saya menitis.  Arwah abah adalah guru terbaik saya. Saya banyak belajar politik, seni berpidato, penulisan sastera Melayu, kesultanan Melayu, tulisan jawi, seni khat dan peradaban Islam Tanah Melayu dan apa sahaja ilmu politik alam Melayu. Arwah abah juga yang melatih saya sehingga Berjaya mendapat status kebanggaan sebagai Pemidato Terbaik sekolah-sekolah Malaysia. Kejayaan ini sebenarnya memberi kekuatan hebat subconscious mind dalam setiap tindakan dan kerja yang saya lakukan sehingga sekarang. AL-Qur’an juga menyebut sedemikian (Saya akan kupas perkara ini dalam entri mendatang).

 Namun arwah abah sering berpesan,
“Merendah diri perlu diutamakan, tetapi maruah diri, Islam, bangsa dan kesinambungan Malay Archipelago mesti dipertahankan.”

Walaupun proses pembelajaran ini telah sudah hampir 25 tahun, saya masih ingat beberapa fakta. Menariknya, banyak sumber ilmu diperpustakaan ketika itu ditulis dalam bahasa Inggeris (internet belum wujud).  Berikut saya petik  definisi dan apakah dia Malay Archipelago serta apa kaitannya dengan Kesultanan Sulu.

The Malay Archipelago refers to the archipelago between mainland Southeastern Asia and Australia. The name was derived from the anachronistic concept of a Malay race.

It has also been called the Indo-Australian Archipelago, East Indies, Indonesian Archipelago, and other names over time. The term is largely synonymous with Maritime Southeast Asia. Situated between the Indian and Pacific Oceans, the group of over 25,000islands is the largest archipelago by area, and fourth by number of islands in the world. It includes Indonesia, the PhilippinesSingapore,  Brunei, East Malaysia and East Timor. The island of New Guinea or islands of Papua New Guinea are not always included in definitions of the Malay Archipelago.

The term was derived from the concept of a Malay race, which included the peoples of the modern-day nations of Indonesia (excluding western New Guinea), Malaysia, Brunei,East Timor and the Philippines. The racial concept was proposed by European explorers based on their observations of the influence of the ethnic Malay empire (Indonesia),Srivijaya.

The 19th century naturalist Alfred Wallace used the term "Malay Archipelago" as the title of his influential book documenting his studies in the region. Wallace also referred to the area as the "Indian Archipelago" and the "Indo-Australian" Archipelago. He included within the region the Solomon Islands and the Malay Peninsula due to physiographic similarities. As Wallace noted  there are arguments for excluding Papua New Guinea for cultural and geographical reasons: Papua New Guinea is culturally quite different from the other countries in the region, and the island of New Guinea itself is geologically not part of the continent of Asia, as the islands of the Sunda Shelf are (see Australia).
The archipelago was called the "East Indies" in the European colonial era and is still sometimes referred to as such, but broader usages of the "East Indies" term had included Indochina and the Indian subcontinent. Indonesians use the term "Nusantara" for the "Malay archipelago". The area is also referred to as the Indonesian archipelago.

This particular CD will be the bare bones of songs
my fans might never get the chance to hear otherwise. Nonetheless, what I did learn from this tutorial is that by being gentle with the false lashes & washing the glue off of them after
wearing them will lengthen its useage, thus, saving money
on having to replace the lashes. You'll never go back to wasting money on expensive, chemical-laden products again.

When you’re ready to unwind after a long day, there’s nothing as

relaxing as lying back and soaking in the tub. When you’re ready to

fill up the tub, you’ll want it done properly and in style. That’s

why the tub isn’t a tub until you’ve considered what type of bathtub

tap to add.http://www.plumpinguk.co.uk/bath-taps.html

When shopping for a new bathtub tap (also sometimes referred to as

Roman tub fillers), keep in mind that they’re typically offered in

the lighter finishes (like chrome and nickel tones), but there are a

few exceptions. Also, you probably won’t need to worry too much about

spout reach if your tub can already accommodate a bathtub tap. Also,

many models include a hand shower as an added convenience.
