Munshi Abdullah b. Abdullah was known for his work as a teacher, interpreter and writer. At six, he suffered a severe attack of dysentery. Pampered by his grandmother, he was unable to read the Koran even at the age of seven. He could only trace out the written Arabic characters with his pen while the other children chanted their verses. His father also gave him nightly writing exercises, and severely punished him for any mistakes until he was word-perfect. He also taught religion to Muslim soldiers of the Indian garrison stationed at Malacca Fort.
From them, he learned Hindustani. As the captain was leaving with his document, Sheikh Abdul Kadir returned. Abdullah zealously read all the Malay manuscripts he could lay his hands on, giving his teachers no rest with his questions. He also went to great lengths to seek out tutors who could expound to him the intricacies of Malay idioms. By the age of 14, he was an accomplished Malay scholar.
Abdullah attended the class to learn English. Other missionaries followed suit, and Abdullah was kept busy teaching them Malay and translating the Gospels. The two later worked together to translate parts of the Bible into Malay, and operate a hand press producing other printed material, including religious tracts.
Abdullah worked with Keasberry to print a large number of books, and also taught him Malay. Unlike other Malay writing at the time, he eschewed fantasy and legend, and instead wrote realistic accounts of events based on his own experiences and those of others.
