Abstract:
This novel is the continuation of the same-titled short story that was published in Mingguan Melayu on 24 February 1952. More than just a love story, this novel brings awareness and criticises the traditions of a culture that places too much importance on the concept of class, and the repercussions of its differences. Syarifah is an important document that narrates the socio-cultural development of the Malay community in Singapore during the pre-war era to the modern times. This includes outdated practices and iconic elements of the Malay society that transcend through times and become a nostalgia.
