Abstract


In this study, articles about the Malay world in selected Ottoman periodicals were evaluated. The articles were published between 1909 and 1924 in Beyânulhak Magazine, Hikmet newspaper, Islam Mecmuasi Magazine, Mahfil Magazine, Sirat-i Mustakim Magazine, Sebilurresad Magazine, Teâruf-i Muslimîn Magazine, and Tarih-i Osmani Encumeni Magazine. The articles are important in terms of reflecting both the political and cultural atmosphere of the period. Also, the articles are important in terms of showing how the press of the Ottoman Empire, the centre of the caliphate, reacted to the problems in the Islamic world. By examining the articles in these periodicals, the then-current issues of the Islamic world can be understood. Especially considering the importance of the Malay world for Islamic civilisation, the articles were determined as the subject of study. As a result of the study, it is seen that the articles in Ottoman periodicals mostly contained information about the social, economic, cultural, and political situation of the Muslims living in the Malay world.
