Principles of Unity in Noordin Hassan’s “1400”

  • Rohani Md Yousoff Universiti Malaysia Terengganu

Abstract

The intention (niyāh) of man when he decides and acts must be based on knowledge and the Truth or else he will not be properly guided. Man’s weaknesses that include jealousy and greed can cause turmoil not only to himself but also to the people around him and the environment. This paper will identify the decision of man through his play “1400” using Al-Faruqi’s Principles of Unity to further ascertain Islamic elements either through the decisions and actions of the roles featured in the play, especially the main character, Dolah.
