    The sources of Malaysian legal system law are from two different laws which are the Written and Unwritten law. In Malaysian Legal System, the most important source of law is the Written Law which comprises of The Federal Constitution, State Constitutions, Legislation and Subsidiary Legislation. Analyzing adat law (adatrecht/hukum adat-in this paper the author will use the term 'adat law' instead of its Dutch term 'adatrecht') is not an easy task. Not only do we have to deal with a massive and long intellectual tradition made both by jurists and social scientists, but also should we account for a range of diverse systems of adat law.   Unfortunately, facts about Emperor Fuxi, assuming he existed, are hard to pin down as the same sources, legend, as reflected in Chinese history, suggests that Fuxi lived for years, that he had mind-control over animals and could control the weather. Later, though, there is documentary evidence of law-making in China some 4, years ago.
