To date, there has been no complete adequate understanding of the phrase. Apart from being the only adequate scholarly work dealing with this approach, it will also be one of the first renderings of the approach into English which simultaneously attempts to weave Abdullah’s beautifully penned poetic composition with the need for a sagacious comprehension of the modern contemporary world.

Although there have been a vast number of interpretations and explanations which have exposed the phrase to the Malay speaking milieu, the lack of an adequate critique or analysis has not only hampered its correct understanding, it has failed to approach even the logical boundaries of intelligible meaning. What this preliminary study ultimately aims to achieve is to arrive at an intelligible meaning for the benefit of the Malays primarily, and Malaysians in general.
