Abstract

Islam has a pivotal role within the improvement of mathematics, especially inside the brilliant age of classical Muslim science. It is not only in terms of formulas discovery, but also mathematics development through the expansion of Islam across the world. One of the proofs is an Arabic manuscript titled Mukhtasar fi Ilm al-Hisab (Mathematics Summary) by Abdul Qadir bin Ali As-Sakhawi. This manuscript is an important book in Malay mathematics. For that reason, this research aims to indicate the Islamic influence in Malay mathematics through the scientific manuscript. The author used the critical edition method in philology through text editing of the manuscript. The fact seems to suggest that Muslim scholars have a significant impact of mathematical works in the Malay world.
