Hello there. I’m here to talk about a famous mythological figure.
They called him Hang Tuah.
It’s really funny, but when I was asked, earlier this year about fictional Muslims, I actually truthfully said that I couldn’t remember any.
Thing is, dhobikikutti started pestering me to talk about Muslim characters, write some Muslim fic, and I honestly couldn’t get myself started, because… well because I was lazy. Still am, actually.
But then I remembered: Hey, isn’t Hang Tuah a Muslim? It’s weird, because I normally associate Hang Tuah with Malay-ness (he’s kind of the quintessential Malay guy, really). And this is funny, because I remember playing him once in an amateur play. I was really bad at it.
So. How does Hang Tuah’s story go?( here's how it went )
Anyway, I thought it was cool, and I wanted to share.( Additional edits made after some feedback from one of my friends )
