Abstract

Identity often divides people, but at the same time it is a decisive factor of collective solidarity.Being Malay assumes a long history pertaining to social, cultural and political construction.By means of textual criticism of Bahr al-Lahut, it can be observed that the identity offered in Bahr al-Lahut can be understood as an alternative to the established concept of identity.While Malay is identical with Muslim, cosmopolitan Islam is a response to the diversity of identity.
