Orang banyak nyatalah tentu
Bilangan lebih daripada seribu
Mati sekalian orangnya itu
Ditimpa lumpur, api dan abu

Pulau sebuku dikata orang
Ada seribu lebih dan kurang
Orangnya habis nyatalah terang
Tiadalah hidup barang seorang

Rupanya mayat tidak dikatakan
Hamba melihat rasanya pingsan

Apalah lagi yang punya badan
Harapkan rahmat Allah balaskan.

As we know that the eruption of the Krakatoa volcano that occurred on 26, 27 and August 28, 1883 it is a very powerful eruption, tsunami waves big waves at the time it reaches up to several countries in other parts of Europe.

Even if the script being used is Jawi script, it is not surprising because in the 18th century Book of the Book is written by the scholars archipelago has many outstanding, and although in general the people are illiterate, but they are not al-Quran illiterate. That is why great works of the scholars archipelago written using this Jawi letters.
