	%X In the fifteenth century, the Malacca Empire emerged
as the centre of Islamic civilization in the Malay Archipelago. The
history had been recorded in Sulalat Al-Salatin, an important literary
source about the genealogy of all Kings in Malacca. The objective of
this study was to analyze the understanding of sayings from Prophet
Muhammad among Malays in Malacca during the fifteenth century
through all of the hadith quoted in Sulalat Al-Salatin. This study used
content analysis methodology to validate the sayings where all of
them were critically analyzed and compared with the classical hadith
sources from prominent Muslim scholars. As a result, only two out of
the four quotations were considered as authentic sayings of Prophet
Muhammad. This study also showed the importance of the palace as
the centre of the Islamic education system and the role played by
Muslim preachers from outside of Malacca to propagate Islam in
Malacca.
