Haji Abdul Malik Karim Amrullah or prominently known as HAMKA (1908-1981) was an Indonesian scholar, thinker, religious activist, and novelist who was well known in Nusantara. HAMKA was an eminent scholarly figure who made a remarkable contribution to the development of Muslims through his knowledge dissemination and relevantisation activities. He had made a significant impact on the ways in which knowledge should be sourced and approached, systematised and indigenised them to the local context. Today, even after forty years of HAMKA’s departure, his works, thought and rhetoric continue to inspire the Muslim scholars of Nusantara particularly the Malay-speaking intellectuals, thinkers and even the public. HAMKA’s thought is relevant and pertinent because he lived in the period of colonisation which exposed the Muslims of Nusantara to Western values, philosophy and modern way of life. The challenges Muslims are facing today are the extensions of the challenges faced by HAMKA and his contemporaries.
