The inside evidence of Muslim sources themselves is necessarily of a pious nature, as is, for example, the internal evidence about the conversion of Britian to Christianity. No historical event could more obviously be a part of God's purpose for man, and therefore the aspects of the story recalled by Muslim writers are naturally those which show the Divine purpose at work.

Malay chronicles like those of Pasai, Melaka and Patani do not differ markedly from accounts from other parts of the world. They emphasize Divine revelation through dreams such as those of the rulers of Pasai and Melaka in turn; or the miraculous powers of a holy man of God such as Shaikh Sa'id of Pasai in his healing of the ruler of Patani.1
