This chapter looks at the genesis of the Islamist agenda in Malaysia from the perspective of both Parti Islam Se-Malaysia (PAS) and the United Malays National Organization (UMNO). Using the history of the Islamist opposition PAS and UMNO’s concomitant early responses to its rise as a lens through which to perceive the early tenor of Islamism in the Malaysian context, the chapter demonstrates how the party underwent several metamorphoses as it evolved to locate Islamism at the heart of its social-political agenda.

Keywords:   PAS, Hizbul Muslimin, UMNO, Islamization, Majlis Shura, Yusof Rawa, Amanat Haji Hadi, kafir-mengafir, Abdul Hadi Awang
