Melaka/ Negeri Sembilan

MELAKA

• Founded by Parameswara who converted to Islam in 1414. He changed his name to Megat Iskandar Shah.

• Muhammad Shah (1424-1444) established an administrative system based on the Hindu pattern of government. The system continued to operate until the Portuguese invasion in 1511.

• Mudzaffar Shah (1446-59) proclaimed Islam as the state religion.

• The famous Melaka hero, Hang Tuah, lived during the reign of Mansur Shah (1459-1477).

• Sultan Mahmud Shah (1488-1528) was the last sultan. He fled Melaka during Portuguese invasion in the early 16th century.

• Was surrendered to the British in the Anglo-Dutch Treaty of 1824.

• Main contribution: incorporation of Islamic ideas into the Malay culture.

NEGERI SEMBILAN

• Greatly influenced by Minangkabau culture, adat perpatih.

• The Minangkabau from Sumatra settled here in the 15th century.

• In 1773, Raja Melewar was proclaimed the first ruler of Negeri Sembilan, known as Yang Di-Pertuan Besar.

• Civil war in Sungai Ujong led to British intervention in 1873.

• Accepted a British Resident in 1895.

• Now consists of six states. Naning was annexed by Melaka, Kelang by Selangor and Segamat by Johor.

• The Yang Di-Pertuan Besar is elected by the Undangs (territorial chiefs of the state). Only four Undangs (Sungai Ujong, Jelebu, Johol and Rembau) have the right to vote.

We praise God
for His grace and His good works in Melaka and Negeri Sembilan,
for His providence and blessings upon the people.
