It is a handbook of advice for how an Islamic prince should rule His people. Alexander appears to be mentioned in the Holy Koran as DZoelkarnain the horned king, guided by the prophet Khidir, he provides an example for how a Malay Islamic pince should handle kingship.

We also see in these legends so much of the real Alexander, his quest for knowledge, his prowess in battle and delight in travel and adventure. An exhilarating mix of history and fairytale - a story of genies and giants, flying carpets, magic and demons. It unlocks for us the Malaccan sultanate and life in the Malay archipelago so many centuries ago.
